Frequently Asked Questions
I am often asked many questions associated with Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattoo, and the questions listed below form a selection of the most frequently asked.  If you have any questions which do not appear in this list, please contact me. I am always happy to answer any questions you have about your cosmetic tattoo needs.  
What is Semi-Permanent Make-up?

Semi-Permanent Make-up is a non-surgical treatment that replicates flawlessly applied ‘conventional’ cosmetics through the infusion of coloured, pharmaceutical grade pigments into the skin. Results are immediate and long lasting, bringing balance and definition to facial features.

Who is Semi-Permanent Make-up suitable for?

Every woman who wants to feel good about her self and confident that her eyebrows are flawless with an endurance way beyond anything conventional cosmetics can offer!  The Brow Room also offers life-changing benefit to alopecia sufferers or those who are suffering / will suffer hair loss following chemotherapy. (NOTE – It is advisable to have the treatment done prior to the chemotherapy and the subsequent hair loss, particularly with the eyebrows. The reason for this is so that your natural hair growth patterns can be taken into consideration, so that when your eyebrows do grow back, they will exist in harmony with the tattooed brow).

Is Semi-Permanent Make-up safe?

Absolutely! I follow a strict code of conduct that ensures the safety of my clients. Meticulous standards of hygiene are followed with the use of disposable cartridges, gloves etc.  I am trained to the highest PMC standards, and only use state-of-the-art equipment and hypoallergenic pigments.

Does it hurt?

Client comfort is an important aspect of all semi-permanent procedures. It does hurt a little, but is rather more uncomfortable than unbearable. Be assured, we use the best topical numbing agents are used throughout the procedure ensuring your maximum comfort.

How long do the results last for?

Semi-Permanent Cosmetic procedures can last for many years. The actual length of time is variable and depends on factors such as UV / sun exposure, skin type, beauty regimen, the density of colour implanted into the skin (softer enhancements do not last as long as strong, bold enhancements). All enhancements will require a colour boost or top up every year or two to maintain their crispness and colour.

Can I play sport or swim immediately following my procedure?

I recommend that you avoid sport on the day of the procedure, and avoid swimming (fresh or salt water), saunas and steam rooms for at least 6 days or until the skin has fully healed as this could cause infection and the tattoo to fade!

How quickly will my procedure heal?

Everyone is different and healing times vary according to your health. Generally speaking the skin surface will heal in under a week, and the basal layers (underneath layers) of the skin take a little longer. This said, there is no real down time as long as you follow the Post Care Instructions.

How will I look immediately afterwards?

Brows procedures are barely noticeable, usually only appearing slightly darker. 

Can I wear make-up afterwards?

We advise not to wear normal cosmetics until the skin has healed as this may cause infection and/or hinder the healing process. Once healed you can wear as much make-up as you wish, although you probably will not need to!

How long does the procedure take?

Most procedures take approximately 1.5 hours from start to finish.

Will the enhancement look false or unnatural?

Absolutely not!  My signature brows are always natural and appealing. I maintain that a person looks best with a ‘fresh faced’ look rather than a heavy unnatural look.

What if I am on medication – will it affect the procedure?

There are some medications that are contra-indicated. It is vitally important that you discuss medications you are taking with me at your consultation.
