FAQ’s EllieM


Am I suitable for semi-permanent make-up?

Most individuals are suitable for some form of semi-permanent make-up.  At your initial consultation, we will explore precisely which treatments are available to you, in order to achieve your desired outcome.

Can I have semi-permanent make-up if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

You cannot have semi-permanent make-up whilst pregnant and it is also not recommended whilst breastfeeding.

Can you provide semi-permanent make-up services to me if I have pre-existing work carried out elsewhere?

We may be able to undertake correction work for you.  A consultation will determine whether or not this is possible.  We are also able to remove existing semi-permanent make-up and again this will be fully explored during your initial consultation.

How long will semi-permanent make-up last?

Semi-permanent make-up can last for up to 3 years, but this is largely dependent on several factors such as skin type, sun exposure and lifestyle.

A colour refresh treatment is recommended every 12 to 18 months in order to maintain optimum results.

Does semi-permanent make-up hurt?

Client comfort is our top priority at the clinic.  In order to minimise any discomfort, a numbing cream is applied prior to and during treatment.

Can I still have semi-permanent make-up/lip filler if I suffer from cold sores?

If you suffer from cold sores, the treatment may give you another outbreak. We advise you take Aciclovir (Zovirax) tablets prior to treatment and during the healing process to help prevent this.

Will dermaplaning make my hair grown back thicker/darker?

No, dermaplaning will not make your facial hair grow back thicker or darker. What you do to the surface of the hair does not thicken or darken it, as the hair follicles themselves are not affected. Your hair will grow back, but it will look just like it did before you had the treatment.
