Semi-permanent make-up fills in sparse brows, defines lash lines, and deepens lip colour, with results lasting between one and three years. All procedures are individually designed and personalized to your needs.
The first session is typically 75 to 90 minutes. A lidocaine cream is applied, and after a discussion about design and colour, we use a microblade to insert iron oxide ink into desired areas. Results are always darker than desired and will shed after approximately five days—it’s best to plan for a day or two at home afterwards. Eyeliner and lip colour procedures will be puffy for up to 48 hours.
A touch-up appointment to add more detail and definition is usually required after six to eight weeks, after which you can expect to touch-up colour every one to three years.
