Frequently Asked Questions

What is permanent makeup?

It’s an application of pigment into the skin via either a digital machine using a needle or with a small blade as used in microblading, both are a form of tattooing but on the face rather than the body.

Will permanent makeup fade?

Yes it does usually fade, depending on several factors such as; exposure to sun or sun beds, products used on the face such as retinol, skin type and immune system, as such its recommended you have top up every 12 to 18 months on average.

Will permanent makeup fade completely?

It can completely fade, however, although you may not see the pigment, it will stay permanently in the skin where it was tattooed. This only happens in a small minority.

Will retinol fade permanent makeup?

Yes it can fade the pigment, so it’s best to avoid putting on or too close to the tattoo.

How long will permanent makeup last?

Top ups are recommend every 12 to 18 months; however, those with oily skin may need a top up a bit sooner. If you don’t have top ups, then in most cases the pigment will continue to fad over time.

Can permanent makeup be removed?

It depends on the area tattooed; it’s difficult to remove eyeliner because of the closeness to the eyes, although there are a few specialists that have been successful in treating this area with laser removal. The other removal methods of using a bonding agent or salt would be too harsh for the skin in this area.

Eyebrows can be treated with all methods of removal quite successfully.

Lip tattooing is more difficult to remove because of the titanium dioxide present in most lip colours, if a laser is used it will turn it dark gray, therefore non laser methods would be a better option.

Can permanent makeup cover a tattoo?

Yes it can be used to cover a tattoo but this treatments needs to be done by a specialist.

Can permanent makeup cover scars?

Who can do permanent makeup?

Can I get permanent makeup while breastfeeding?

It’s advised not to have permanent makeup whilst breast feeding because of the unpredictable behaviour of the pigments caused by hormones, which are very active during breastfeeding.

However, everything is very individual, and no one can say for sure what consequences (or lack of them) there may be.
