Cosmetic tattooing also known as micro-pigmentation or semi- permanent makeup is the art and science of implanting colour into your skin. A specialized tattooing pen like device is used to implant the colour pigments into the dermis layer of skin producing designs that resemble makeup and used to enhance your facial features such as eyebrows, eyes and lips with a soft natural appearance. Each treatment is specifically designed to suit the individual’s skin type, skin tone and facial structure.
Paramedical tattooing is used for patients who suffer from scars, alopecia, vitiligo or have scars from accidents or surgery.
All cosmetic tattooing will fade over time because of the semi permanent nature of the pigments used.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it last?
Micro pigmentation can last a long time but not forever. It has been known to last for 3-7 years but depends on a lot of factors. Such as your metabolism, any medications you are on, a smoker, exposure to the sun or the type of skin you have, oily skin doesn’t last quite as long as dry skin. Lighter coloured pigments may also fade faster then darker coloured pigments. You may require an annual refresh visit also called a colour boost, which I offer at a reduced price.
I am afraid of pain… will the procedure hurt?
Sensations can vary from person to person. Topical anesthetics have been developed especially for permanent makeup procedures to significantly reduce discomfort and can be obtained through a prescription. However some people still experience some level of discomfort. On a scale of 1-10 the pain will be somewhere between 0-3.
How long will it take to recover?
Swelling lasts from 2-72 hours after the procedure. There maybe some tenderness for the first few days. The colour implanted will appear darker for the first 5-10 days. This is because the colour appears in both the epidermis and dermis layer of skin. The colour will flake off the top layer of skin during the healing process lightening the overall effect. You will then be viewing the colour through a veil of skin. This true colour will appear once the area is fully healed in 4-6 weeks. Most people do not need to take time off work.
