Q. How long does the treatment take?
A. Your first consultation for both Powder Brow and Eyebrow Embroidery treatments takes 1.5 – 2 hours with the first 45 minutes dedicated to the consultation and the remaining time for the procedure. After 4 weeks you return to the clinic for a follow –up appointment (30 minutes) to review and assess the treatment and touch up the colour.
Q. What happens during the treatment?
A. A topical anaesthetic is applied to your skin before treatment beings. From there Sherise beings the artistic process of measuring and drawing the brows to suit your features. Colour choice is the next stage and this is where Sherise’s eye for shade and facial fit is essential. We then move onto the procedure itself which takes on average 30 minutes to complete.
Q. Is it painful?
A. A topical anaesthetic will numb the area; many say it is like their brows being tweezed. We understand that everyone has different tolerance levels so we do our utmost to ensure that you are comfortable throughout.
Q. What should I expect after the treatment?
A. For the first week the colour applied will be much darker during the healing process. Thereafter you can lose from 40% to 70% of the colour during the first 30 days.
Q. Is it safe?
A. All treatments are carried out by a fully qualified and experienced professional. All equipment used during treatments is completely disposable and high grade organic. We always advise clients to keep the area as clean as possible afterwards. Any medical conditions are discussed prior to treatment in a confidential and secure setting.
Q. How can I prepare for the treatment?
A. Please make sure there are no cuts or abrasions in the area being treated and we always ask that you put some time and thought into your finished look. Sherise can help you decide during the consultation but you will need to have some idea of which procedure and look suits your lifestyle best.
Q. What is the difference between Semi Permanent and Permanent Make up?
A. The procedures vary in terms of equipment used and Semi Permanent is pigment placed between epidermal and dermal layer of skin. Tiny strokes are drawn on using a hand tool so the effect is a very natural look that will fade with time, while Permanent Make-up is pigment placed into the dermal layer of the skin so therefore more permanent and recreate a more makeup look.
Q. How many treatments do I need?
A. Each and every client is different. Usually 2 treatments at first but for different reasons such as skin type you may need more to get the desired look. These pigments that are implanted into the skin are permanent; the pigments however fade and will need to be topped up every 12 to 18 months. It really does depend on your individual lifestyle and skin types and colour of pigments.
Q. Who cannot have Semi Permanent Make up?
A. If you are under the care of a doctor or specialist we would always recommend that you ask them first before booking the treatment. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding we strongly recommend not having treatment. If you are undergoing treatment for cancer you can either have the treatment pre-chemo or 5 weeks post.
