So, what is permanent make-up?

Also called semi-permanent make-up or micro pigmantation. It is similar to tattooing and is a method of applying hypo-allergenic pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. This technique is medically proven and specifically designed to be completely safe. The results can be basically whatever you want them to be. Your permanent make up is designed to suit your individual look and can be worn alone or with additional make up.

Eye Shadowing & Microblading (Hairstroke)

Microblading is an innovative hairstroke method that allows to create ultra natural look, it can reconstruct the hair that are missing, it is brilliant for customers with alopecia, those who over plucked the eyebrows through out the years. Treatment is done with an sterile blade opposite to a machine. It is made by hand with excellent precision. Hair tattooed are as fine as a natural hair.

What is the procedure?

It starts from a consultation with the linergist that will be doing your permanent make-up. Consultation is needed in order discuss and draw the shape, technique, and any other queries. Do not hesitate to ask any questions because permanent make-up is a serious procedure, and you have to be sure that the technician understands you. The linergist will use a topical anaesthetic to numb the area she is working on. The anaesthetic is based on the same ingredients as dental blocks, so if you are allergic on any of them you need to inform your technician. The numbing cream will be re-applied during the whole procedure. You will be asked to sit up a couple of times during the procedure to check and discus the shape. The time of the whole procedure with the consultation will take approximately 1.5 up to 2hrs. The tattooed area may look a little bit swollen, some redness may appear and the colour initially applied will be about 50% darker to final result after healing.

We offer a whole range of permanent make up, call us for prices and offers. Make ups are done by Aga Deryng our qualified lingerist with over 6 years of experience.


Permanent make up-requires proper home care. Once done you will not be allowed to use sun-beds or expose your face to strong sun light and you shouldn’t plan your holidays up to 3 weeks post treatment. After treatment your skin will push out the excess of the pigment which will show with thin crusty (scabby) surface. You are not allowed it pick, rub, pull it off. Also you should avoid any bodies of water such as washing tattooed area, swimming pools, saunas, sae water for around 10 days after procedure. After that time all the crust should come off naturally.

No make-up is allowed on the tattooed area for the 10 days time (excluding lip area which should stay without any pigments, lipsticks, lip glosses for 3 weeks).

To maintain your permanent make-up you should use clear, plain Vaseline once a day (preferably in the morning) applied every time with a clean cotton bud. Keep the area clean, away from dust and any allergens. Do not touch it with your fingers.

You have to be careful especially with the lip area. Avoid savoury, spicy or greasy foods. Avoid alcoholic drinks as they can affect healing process.

You may use an old pillowcase as some of the pigment may come off during sleep and stain your bedding.

Remember permanent make-up is a process and it takes time to heal. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact us.
