Pain & discomfort
Pain is relative, however the procedure itself shouldn’t be painful. During the procedure, an ointment can be applied to help minimise pain and discomfort.
Will I need a patch test?
Yes. All clients will be required to complete a patch test at least 48 hours before their treatment.
Will I need a top up?
Yes absolutely! The treatment is conducted in two parts, the initial treatment and the top up. Without the top up the area may appear patchy and unfinished. The 8 week top up is included in the initial treatment price. Top ups outside of this timeframe are chargeable. The top up cannot be performed earlier than 8 weeks after the initial treatment as we need to wait for the area to fully heal before making any adjustments. Some individuals may require further top ups due to lifestyle, skin type, poor aftercare and other factors. We are not responsible for poor pigment retention or poor aftercare and these actions will result in needing further top ups. Additional top ups are not included in the price of the treatment and are chargeable.
What are the risks?
If you find a highly skilled and knowledgeable practitioner who is aware of your skin type and medical history, then having any type of semi-permanent makeup treatment should be a safe process. You should always do your research and choose the right practitioner for your needs.
There is no definitive answer as to whether we can offer a cover up as this is dependent on the shape, colour and positioning of the previous work. If you have badly-performed semi-permanent makeup, you may need to opt for a removal procedure first. Please contact us to arrange a consultation.
