What is Permanent makeup?

Permanent makeup (PMU) or semi-permanent makeup (SPMU), also called makeup tattooing, is a type of tattooing.

The technique involves injecting pigment through the skin to the borderline of the epidermis and dermis. The result lasts only a few years because of the nature of the procedure and pigments used, regardless of the method applied, digital machine or a handheld device (micro blade).

Is the PMU procedure safe?

It is an entirely safe procedure as long as you are suitable for it and the equipment and technique are done and used correctly and as hygienically as possible. I use disposable, single-use accessories only. This is because the needle pierces your skin and is obtained from a sterile package that has not been used before and is not touched with bare hands.

The pigment that is used is also sterile. The pigment is placed in a small sterilised ink cup and only be used for your treatment. Any remaining pigment will be discarded. Tissues or cotton swabs used during application are also single-use, disposable, clean and will be discarded immediately after use. I wear PPE -a disposable apron, gloves, and medical mask - when applying for your tattoo.

Does the procedure hurt?

As we are all different, everyone has a different pain threshold. The most important for me is your comfort level during the procedure, although some discomfort is associated with it.

How long does PMU last? Does it fade completely?

It depends on several factors, including the technique, skin type, age, metabolism, sun exposure and lifestyle. It is recommended a colour refresher (Colour Boost) treatment is six months to 2 years (depending on the method applied) to maintain perfect results.

Am I suitable for PMU?

Before having Permanent makeup applied, you will be asked to complete a Consultation Form. This form includes several questions on your health. After this is completed, I will advise whether permanent makeup is suitable or safe for you to have done.

How do I choose the right colour and shape?

It is a joint effort. We will do everything together, from choosing colour through planning the shape and placement to carrying out treatment.

Only agree with the procedure if you are 100% happy with the placement, shape and colour.

How long will it take to have it done?

Depending on the treatment area, new procedures take about 1,5 to 2,5 hours. Therefore, we will discuss the procedure length during the initial consultation after discussing which technique will be applied.

Why is a consultation needed?

A Consultation and test patch are always required to ensure that the procedure is suitable and safe for you; there are no contraindications or allergies. It is up to 45 minutes and free of charge. However, I require a £50 booking fee to secure your booking. This amount will be carried over to your procedure appointment and be deducted from the total at the end of your treatment.
Only agree to cosmetic or aesthetic procedures with a consultation and/or test patch beforehand.

What is happening during the consultation and test patch?

The consultation is up to 45 minutes to ensure enough time to answer all your questions. I will take pictures of your entire face on your phone (and mine, too) before and after designing your PMU to indicate the final result. You can leave wearing the design of PMU to familiarise yourself. After creating the shape and location of your PMU, we will choose colour/colours together. When we agree on the colour that will be used during the procedure, I will do the test patch to check for allergic reactions.

How is the PMU procedure carried out?

Firstly, we ensure that no medical conditions have changed since your consultation, and we can start. When the initial procedure is finished, you will be given a free Aftercare ointment with comprehensive instructions to help you look after your new tattoo. You will also be sent the instructions via email with a healing schedule, so you can be confident about how to care for it and what to expect in the days and weeks ahead. Finally, you will be booked in for your free Follow up appointment approximately 6-12 weeks after the initial appointment. During the Follow-up session, we can correct the colour and top up any missing areas, if necessary. Sometimes, the second session can take the same length of time as the first one, but there is no additional charge for this.

Are there any side effects of PMU?

There can be side effects localised to the treatment area.
After the procedure, moderate swelling and redness can be expected in the treatment area for a couple of hours (sometimes up to days). After that, an ice pack can be applied but maximum of 10 minutes at a time!

Scabbing and/or flaking of the skin on the area is typical for about a week. Any unusual side effects, such as heat, blistering and extreme itching, are rare. Although a patch test is carried out at least 48 hours before treatment, any allergic response/reaction could still occur post-treatment, even years after (Pseudolymphomatous).

How long is the recovery time of PMU?

There is no actual downtime of the procedure; immediately after it is done, you can return to your normal day-to-day activities. However, the entire healing time of the skin takes 4-6 weeks.

What can I expect after my procedure?

Straight after the procedure, you can expect moderate swelling and redness in the treatment area for several hours (sometimes up to days). Then, an ice pack can be applied but a maximum of 10 minutes at a time!

Scabbing and/or skin flaking can occur in the area for several days. Please DO NOT PICK the skin; it has to be held up under scabs and come off by itself to keep pigments in for a long time. If you pick the skin during scabbing or flaking, can cause scarring and make the result less long-lasting or disappear entirely.

Colours will get darker after the procedure by scabbing. Lines can be blurry and sometimes fade during the healing process. It is entirely normal. The total healing time of the skin is 4-6 weeks. The final result of PMU, shape and colour will reveal 4-6 weeks after this period. You will be sent the instructions via email with a healing schedule, so you can be confident about caring for your skin and what to expect in the days and weeks ahead.

Different skin types heal and take pigment in various ways, as we are all unique, and our skin is excellent too. Some skin types heal quicker and take pigments better than others.

Results vary, and there is no guarantee that one procedure with one Follow up is sufficient. However, one Follow up is necessary in almost all cases. During the healing procedure, skin can lose 30-50% of pigments; lines can fade or disappear. Therefore, please be aware that sometimes more than one Follow up is required.

What is Follow up, and do I need one?

PMU procedures are multi-session processes. An initial application is complete after a Follow-up appointment, which must be scheduled 6-12 weeks after your initial appointment. After healing time, some of the colours may not have stayed in because the skin may try to reject the pigment. This can be corrected at your Follow up session.

Is there an extra charge of Follow up session?

There is no additional charge for the follow-up appointment as long as it is performed within 12 weeks from the initial application, in the same way, and with the same colour.

How do I pay for my procedure?

To secure your consultation, a £50 booking fee is required. The booking fee will be deducted from your total price on the day of your treatment. If you need to cancel your appointment, please give a minimum of 48 hours' notice. The booking fee is non-refundable if you cancel with less than 48 hours' notice or fail to attend your appointment. The booking fee will be carried over to the next appointment if rescheduling before the 48 hours cancellation period.

How to schedule an appointment? What to do before and after the procedure?

Before Lip colouring, it is recommended to start taking anti-viral tablets to avoid having blisters and herpes after the procedure. Tablets can be prescribed by GP and handled according to recommendation (Valtrex, Valacyclovir, Acyclovir, Famvir, Famciclovir

What is Li-FT®?

Li-FT® is a natural, non-laser, non-acidic, non-chemical, high salt based permanent pigment and tattoo ink lightening and removal solution. Li-FT® works on the theory of Osmosis. Osmosis is a process by which molecules of a solvent (water) tend to pass through a semi-permeable membrane (skin) from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one. This achieves the same amount of concentration on each side of the membrane, what is called Equalization.
Introducing a high concentration of salt water to the dermis where the permanent makeup pigment is creates the process of Osmosis. Water in the cells beneath the pigment contains lower amounts of salt and water will rise to the area containing higher concentrations of salt. This creates Equalization and forces the pigment from the dermal layer up to the epidermis by Osmotic pressure. This is a natural process to become equal to the higher concentration of salt and water. The pigment becomes trapped in the scab on the surface of the skin and when the scabs fall off some of the pigment goes with them.

Is Li-FT® procedure safe?

It is a completely safe procedure as long as you are suitable for it, and technique is done and used properly.

What does Li-FT® salt and saline solution contain?

Li-FT® contains natural ingredients only. It is non-acid, high salt based, fruit seed extract removal product.

Li-FT is made by Li Pigments in a US regulated, licensed and highly credential cosmetics manufacturing lab under the most sterile conditions.

Sea salt to create Osmosis
Lemon seed extract and Orange seed extract for fading and exfoliation
Aloe Vera-to aid in skin conditioning
Sterile water

How does it compare to laser removal?

Laser’s effect depends on the wavelength of the light used. Different wavelengths penetrate at different depths and remove different colours of pigment. If the ink/pigment does not absorb the laser light, it does not shatter. If it does not shatter it will not remove. It takes multiple different laser wavelengths to remove a multi-colored tattoo. Li-FT® saline solutions do not recognise colours, it recognises pigment uniformly and removes all pigment, including white. Li-FT® removal lifts the pigments to the surface of the skin, whereas laser removal pushes the pigment deeper into the skin.

Does the procedure hurt?

As we are all different, everyone has different pain threshold. During procedure a numbing agent is applied if needed.

Am I suitable for removal?

Before having a Li-FT® removal session you will be asked to complete a Consultation Form. This form includes a number of questions on your health. After this completed, I will be able to advise as to whether or not the treatment is suitable or safe for you to have done.

Why is a consultation needed?

A Consultation is always required to make sure that the procedure is suitable and safe for you, there are no contraindication or allergy. Also, a patch test is recommended on certain Fitzpatrick skin types. During the consultation we discuss what to expect during and after treatment, how many sessions you will need and all your questions will be answered.
Never agree any cosmetic or aesthetic procedure without a consultation and/or test patch carried out beforehand.

How long will it take to have it done?

Li-FT® is a fairly quick treatment but it always depends on the size of area and how saturated the colour is. The more saturated the colour the longer the treatment takes.

How many sessions do I need?

It depends on many variables such as
• size of the area
• how saturated the pigment
• how many layers of pigment there is in the skin
• if pigment needs to be fully removed or lightened only
• individuals healing process, etc
During the consultation it all will be discussed.

How long do I have to wait in between two sessions?

It has to be at least eight full weeks of healing to take place before another session is performed. Leaving even longer healing time may give a much better result in lightening.
