Ethical Standards of Employee / Volunteer Conduct

What is permanent makeup?


Permanent makeup is an advanced form of tattooing, however we do not infuse the pigments, as deeply into the skin, so the results we achieve do not have the permanency of a conventional tattoo. The specialised techniques used for permanent makeup are also referred to as permanent cosmetics, permanent makeup, micropigmentation and cosmetic tattooing.




Will I benefit from semi permanent makeup?


If you’re over 18 and use cosmetics it’s likely you’ll benefit from permanent makeup. Feeling flawless, looking younger and saving time. Permanent makeup can enhance your features with a soft natural look or be applied with the purpose of replacing makeup. It’s a convenient alternative if you have allergies to conventional makeup or you’re sporty and want to look your best without worrying about your makeup smudging or sweating off. It’s a must-have if your vision is poor or you have difficulty applying cosmetics due to dexterity related conditions – and of course it's great if you’ve got a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to spend applying and refreshing makeup throughout the day and evening.




Is permanent makeup safe?


Absolutely. We follow rigorous sterilisation and disinfection guidelines and like medical devices, our micro-pigmentation equipment is safe by design against cross-contamination. We use sterile, CE class needles and Biotek pigments, which meet the highest safety and non-toxicity standards – and we perform allergy testing too.




How long does permanent makeup last?


Permanent makeup lasts about 24 months, but it’s difficult to generalise because the fading process is dependent on so many variables – for instance, if you who love to tan, it’s likely that your enhancement will fade faster. We recommend that you return to refresh your enhancement every 12-15 months.




Is it painful?


The pain level for the procedure is considered mild by most. We do use anesthetic to ensure minimal pain. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as like threading initially, once the anesthetic is on clients often say they feel very minimal pain if any. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. This normally subsides in anything from a few hours to a few days.




What are the pre and post care procedures


In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the pre and post care instructions. Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following: - Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. - Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone. - No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior. - Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so our technician can see your every day look you prefer. - Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows! - If you normally have your eyebrows shaped, please do so before your appointment to ensure they are free of stray hairs. After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions: ​​ - Do not immerse brow area in water for 7 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it. - Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 7 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections. - Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours. - Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. - Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days. - No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.
