How many treatments are needed?
Two treatments are usually needed, at least 4-6 weeks apart. Sometimes just one treatment is sufficient. With most procedures, the colour fades dramatically after a week.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Immediately after treatment, the colour will appear darker than your chosen shade. This is because the pigment take around seven days to enter the deeper layers of the skin/. After 7-10 days, exfoliation takes place. The top layer of the skin peels off, leaving a softer, lighter colour below. The result is a natural looking enhancement. As the treated area is settling down, itching may occur. This is a good sign as it means the skin is healing.Do not touch the treated area for 7 days.
How long will the treatment last?
This varies depending on how well your skin holds the pigment. We recommend a colour boost to be taken once a year to keep enhancements looking fresh. Should you choose not to have a yearly colour boost your enhancement will fade over a period of approximately 2-3 years.
When will I need a colour boost?
Top up time is different for everyone. Usually the colour should be touched up after one year.

Strict after care rules are given to the client at the end of each treatment.
Will I be allergic to the treatment?
Allergic reactions are rare. However, a sensitivity test is given. This involves place a tiny amount of pigment on the skin to check for sensitivity.
What factors will affect permanent make up?
How long you spend in the sun. The sun fades the pigment faster so sun block may be used to prolong your enhancement. The regeneration of skin cells – the longer the regeneration takes the longer the pigment holds. The speed at which the skin absorbs the pigment – the slower the absorption the longer the pigment will hold.

The area of treatment – enhancements to the face, for example, fade more quickly due to constant exposure.
