Semi Permanent Makeup

The term permanent makeup also referred to as “permanent cosmetics” or “micropigmentation” refers to the “placement of pigment just beneath the epidermis of the skin” with the primary focus being on the placement of pigment in the area of the eyebrows, eyeliner and lips.

The results can range from soft, subtle to crisp and very well defined, as each colour is custom blended to the client’s requirements.  It lasts up to several years.  It is smudge proof and waterproof.

 

What is Semi Permanent Makeup?

It is a process where advanced pigments are inserted into the epidermis of the skin.  It generally takes two treatments and should last for several years.

The procedure is carried out with the latest technology from the U.S..  Clients are patch tested prior to the first procedure to see if they may have any allergic reaction to the pigment or anaesthetic.  Most people do not have any reaction at all.

Women, whose eyebrows are sparse from plucking, shaving or are simply very blonde or light in colour, can enjoy a perfectly shaped natural looking brow created with semi-permanent make up.

Eyeliner or eyelash enhancement defines and enhances the eyes’ natural colour and shape.

Similarly lip-lining enhances the lip shape and can be used to correct the shape of the lips and to deepen the natural colour of the lips.  We can offer you, through the art of semi-permanent make-up, the confidence of feeling and looking naturally beautiful all of the time.

 

How long does the treatment take?

You will need to allow 2  hours for your first procedure.

 

How long does it last?

Semi-Permanent Make-up should last for several years or as long as the body allows.  Over that time the colour will fade and break down.

It is suggested that you come back to us for a “top up” procedure every 18 months/2 years to keep the look complete and fresh.

 

How much does it cost?

Prices for eyebrows start at approximately €350-400 which includes two treatments, eyeliner €250-300 and lips €350-400.  This costs covers the consultation, first treatment and touch up four weeks later.  We offer discounts if you are treating more than one area.

An initial consultation is carried out and a test patch is performed.

 

Does It Hurt?

Some clients feel no discomfort at all – others feel minimal discomfort.  We use topical anesthetics to control pain tolerance.  Clients say that having a procedure is similar to having their eyebrows plucked or their legs waxed.  Once the procedure is complete there is no discomfort whatsoever.

 

Will everyone notice when I go out?

After a procedure the area treated will be darker and more intense.  This will last for a few days until the area exfoliates and the true colour emerges.  The area will heal, peel and fade and the true colour will emerge.
