No, the needles are plastic and are less invasive than other skin needling techniques

The beauty of these products is that you don’t have to buy an expensive skin care range after the treatment. Carry on using your usual skincare as long as it contains an spf of at least 30.

MISO VYTAL is less invasive; we do not need to use numbing creams on the skin which means the products are able to work better. The contoured needle head means you can be more specific in your treatments and targets finer areas. You can go around the under eye area.

There is very little downtime with this treatment. Your client may look slightly red immediately after but his will quickly subside. The skin starts healing immediately and you should notice a difference within 2 treatments. If you have worked a little more on wrinkles or small scars these may take a day to subside. Your clients may experience some peeling and this is very normal. It is the dehydrated skin leaving the stratum corneum
There is an aftercare treatment included in the treatment package. Clients can use any product but will benefit more from the treatment if they use one with hyaluronic acid. Mineral make up is a great solution to camouflage any slight redness immediately post treatment.
For the first 4 weeks it is recommended that the treatment is once every 5 days. Afterwards it should be carried out every month to maintain optimal results
With botox it is best to leave at least 2 weeks after a Botox treatment before starting a Meso Vytal. With fillers it is best to leave at least 21 days before the fillers have settled.

Each treatment is consisted 3 steps and is composed mainly of Hyaluronic Acid, Hexapeptide which works as a non toxic version of Botox, Panthenol, Macadamia Nut Oil and Grape Seed Oil.

If you normally pencil your eyebrow and use eyeliner, yes. This will give me a good idea of your personal makeup routine and style. Please do not wear mascara as is difficult to remove and I’ll need a clean skin to work. If you do not wear makeup, please just come naturally and together we can create a look that you’re comfortable with.

For the best results, please ensure that the specific area eyebrows, lips and eyes are healthy, moisturised, and free from blemishes prior to your procedure. If the skin area is damaged or “open” it may be best to wait for it to heal firstly.

For lip procedure, if you are prone to coldsore, Zovirax tablets, that you can get from your doctor or Lyscine which is available from any local health shops. Both types should be taken 5 days before treatment and 5 days after, so you aren’t likely to have any outbreak after the procedure.

You will need to avoid swimming and sun tanning for at least one week after any procedure. You may shower and wash your face carefully during this time, but take care to reduce water exposure and avoid scrubbing the permanent makeup area until it has fully healed.

Semi permanent make up and tattooing are similar but not the same.

Tattooing is done mainly on different parts of the body where the skin is more pliable. The machine that is used for tattooing is often a coil machine and the ink is deposited in the 4th layer of the skin.

Semi permanent make up is a much gentler form of tattooing, which penetrates into the 2nd layer of the skin dermis and sometimes even to the subcutis. For tattoo is used ink and has very small particles which makes easier to the ink be absorbed by the skin and remain permanently.

For semi permanent make up is used pigments and has a different texture and large particles which are much bigger than tattoo ink.

Because of the large pigments particles, the colour will never be permanent as the pores on the face are very small, so the pigment struggles to go any further into skin than the dermis. Human skin is composed of three distinct layers, with the epidermis being the outermost layer. Semi permanent make up pigments is deposited in the epidermal area, barely touching the dermis which means it will not last very long but this does depend on the persons skin type.

Semi permanent make up lasts between 1 and 5 years, again depending on a person skin type and colour used. The darker, the longer it will last.

Clients who are pregnant or nursing, are allergic to lidocaine, nickel or iron oxide, are under alcohol or drug influence, taking Atabuse or Roacutane (only 6 months after treatment), are haemophiliac, has Hepatitis C or HIV, taking Warfarin (unless with doctor consent), has visible coldsore or fever blister or any skin disorder on the area to be treated, are epileptic and have experienced a seizure in the last two years, suffers of Glaucoma (only for eyeliner), are insulin dependent diabetics, are prone to hyperpigmention, have keloid scarring.

Sadly, no. These dark areas cannot be covered with semi permanent make up. Instead, you may want to consider waterproof concealer make up.

Yes, I can. However if your eyebrows are grey, black or extremely dark, I strictly recommend having them removed or faded beforehand. This will give me a suitable base to work from. If your eyebrows are faded or light, I can usually work with them in an effort to “camouflage” the previous design. However, you’ll need to book a consultation to see how I can help you. Please note; in some cases- the existing permanent eyebrows can negate the effect of the hair stroke technique. However, as your permanent eyebrows fade with time, I can build up the effect for you. This will normally take around 1 or 2 extra appointments.

Due to demand, please provide at least 24 hours notice if you wish to make a cancellation without penalties. Please note, if you do not give this notice, a cancellation fee may be charged as follows:

More than 24 hours notice: No Fee


Yes, you can shop around but more important than price is quality. My price reflects my commitment to quality, safety, and service. When choosing a semi permanent make up professional, you are choosing an artist that you invest with not only for one appointment, but for years to come as you age and change your look, so chose the best professional that meets your standards.

Unfortunately, you must wait until you pass this phase to ensure safety and the best results as your hormones and skin will be out of balance and quite sensitive during this time.

During your consultation, I’ll take the time to clean and trim your existing eyebrows. If you have unwanted grey hair, you have the options of dying or removing them. Semi permanent make up cannot ‘get rid’ of grey hair.

Absolutely. Even if you’ve had an eyeliner procedure, you’ll be perfectly fine to drive.

You’ll need to wait one week before you can apply your makeup as usual. Keeping the skin clean and free from cosmetics is important during the healing process. Plus, you’ll probably end up pleasantly surprised on how good your skin looks and feels when you keep it makeup-free for one week!

Facial skin is not only delicate but very thin skin and the age and texture will determine the outcome of the permanent makeup. Very few people have completely flawless skin and I will do my best to work along with your situation. A follow-up appointment is included with each new application and allows for improvement and fine-tuning.

Yes, more than likely! According to InStyle, the average woman spends over $15,000 on makeup during their lifetime. This sobering statistic reveals just how much money permanent makeup can save you in the longrun. Most importantly, semi permanent makeup will save you precious time that allows you to “wash and go” in the morning and step out of the house with confidence. Having the design already there, you can enhance it for those special occasions and be glamorous very quick.

Semi permanent make up is incredibly long lasting, but it will fade slowly over time. The rule of thumb is the darker the colour, the longer it lasts. To keep your makeup looking pristine, you should have it refreshed once a year, depending how your skin holds the pigments.

You may think getting permanent makeup applied will be as painful as a traditional tattoo, but it is not. Because I use high-quality topical Caine anaesthetics, most people report nothing more than a “scratching” sensation that is tolerable. People with sensitive skin may experience more sensation, but again, the sensation is tolerable.

Safety and cleanliness are my top priority and my environment and commitment reflect these values. As well, all needles are sterile and fully disposed after each use.

Your semi permanent make up will look darker and more defined for the first 3-6 days. There is no puffiness just maybe a little redness for the eyebrows; 1-2 days of puffiness for the eyes and lips. Basically, your makeup appearance will be bolder. After one week, the intensity will soften 30%-40% on eyebrow and eyeliner and 40%-80% lips.

Firstly, I will carefully analyse your facial shape and features, pinpointing how your natural features can be complemented to make you look more radiant and youthful. Then, I will advise you on the most suitable colours to match your skin and hair tone. Finally, using cosmetic pencils, I will create a variety of designs to help you envision your ideal end result. Only once you are happy, I will go on to apply your semi permanent makeup.

Each procedure normally lasts 1-2 hours. Lastly, I will review aftercare instruction with you and schedule your follow-up visit.

Semi permanent makeup is specialised cosmetic tattooing. Some of the techniques are referred to as micro-pigmentation, micro-pigment implantation and dermagraphics.

The makeup is applied by depositing coloured pigment into the dermis of the skin. It is long-lasting and will fade with UV exposure and natural skin exfoliation. The beauty of permanent makeup is that it allows you to look your best, 24/7.

As long as you meet the minimum age requirements and are relatively healthy, almost anyone can. I have worked with clients young and old, helping them achieve facial enhancement through semi permanent make up. It’s perfect if you can’t wear traditional cosmetics due to sensitivities or certain allergies, and it’s also ideal if you lead a busy outdoor life.

No need to worry about your makeup running or “sweating off”!

Absolutely. The focus of my design is natural-looking makeup that looks elegant yet feminine. Your semi permanent make up will be tailored to blend into your unique skin tone and hair colour, while complimenting and enhancing your natural features so you look fresher, younger and more polished.

I only use UK approved pigments which are composed mainly by Iron Oxide, Glycerin, distilled water and alcohol.

Immediately. Please note; your semi permanent make up will look darker than usual during the first week and is completely normal.

Yes, you can. The majority of appointments are booked this way as they allow for adequate consultation time to discuss colour, shape and design.

Once your goal is determined and you feel confident and comfortable with the design, I will proceed to apply the semi permanent makeup. Each procedure takes approximately 1-2 hours.

No, it is not necessary. During your appointment, I will listen carefully to your goals and to recommend shapes and colours along with a mock-up of the proposed design, this way you can choose your best look and be reassured of the outcome.

Also, I will be seeing you for a follow-up appointment in the following months so you may “fine-tune” your design and make adjustments to shape and colour. The end result will be shape that allows you to feel most comfortable and look your best.

It is important that you do not consume alcohol before treatment. If any quantity of alcohol is consumed treatment may not be possible as it affects the thickness of the blood and prevents proper clotting, this can also effect the effectiveness of the treatment. We recommend that you eat well before treatment as usually during the tattoo process blood sugar levels can drop leading to dizziness or feelings of nausea and sickness.
Treatments starts at £50, however to get a correct estimate it will be necessary to have a consultation.
The treatment is very similar to being tattooed. Depending on the tattoo location is possible to apply topical anaesthetic to help numb the skin prior to treatment.
Due to the unique nature of every tattoo removal cannot be guaranteed, however the success rate of body tattoo removal is around 92% while for permanent cosmetics is 100%. Based on data from cosmetic dermatology trial 2001, (removal defined as no appreciable colour remaining after 1 treatment). New treatment methods now use multiple treatments over a greater timeframe for better results and lower risk. The eventual success can be effected by the condition and circumstances of the original tattoo.
There is no method, product or technology in existence that can remove a permanent body tattoo without some risk that scarring will occur. As with any process that breaks the skin there can be a risk of scarring. The removal process is well tolerated by the skin and the scarring rate in a published series of 98 patients (Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001) was 0% for permanent makeup and 6% for body tattoos that a permanent scar will form, depending on the aftercare. If the original tattoo has been applied poorly, (tattoo is scarred or raised or has become very blurred) or other methods of removal have been attempted removal can be more liable to scarring. There are certain areas, skin types and circumstances which typically have low tolerance to skin trauma and healing and scar tissue formation are more of a concern. There are also a number of preventative measures that can be used to further reduce risks in these circumstances.
It’ll vary on the size of the tattoo.
The removal cream has been specifically developed for the purpose of removing tattoos by bonding with the tattoo ink and causing its expulsion from the body. The remover is inorganic thus it cannot be absorbed or broken down by the body. It is also a mild alkaline solution (9.5-9.8 ph Many of the ingredients can be found in common food and cosmetic products. The ingredients in order of quantity are as follows Water (carrier solution), zinc oxide, magnesium oxide, calcium oxide (inorganic oxides to bond with pigment particles), n-propanol (solvent for drying), Triethlaomine (PH balancer), benzoic acid (Product preservative). Only a very small amount of cream is required per treatment typically less than 2-3ml most of which does not penetrate the skin, exposure is minimal and chemical concentrations in the cream present little or no risk. The treatment has been approved by various health and safety officers around the UK.
No, the removal cream is designed to bond with the tattoo ink and extract the ink to the skin surface. It does not replace the tattoo and it does not remain in the skin. It is not a skin coloured cover up tattoo.
The treatment is suitable for most people, however a through consultation is carried out prior to any treatment. Generally if you have tolerated the original tattoo process then this treatment is very similar. Treatment should not be carried out during pregnancy or breast feeding (due to aftercare considerations such as potential infections and medications). Certain other medical conditions may be a bar to treatment, make it necessary to postpone treatment or seek further clarification from your GP. Darker skin types are more prone to keloid scarring and this process is not recommended for those whose skin type is 5-6 on the Fitzpatrick skin type test. This can be discussed at the consultation process.
Yes, usually the ink in home made tattoos is less resilient than that used in professionally applied tattoos and can be removed very easily, however unlike professional tattoos ink depth can be very random which may make additional treatments necessary.
Yes, this treatment will completely remove permanent make up, the only place its not suitable for is sensitive areas near the eyes, or where there is a risk of moisture contamination (lips).
Yes, the process acts upon all pigments equally, unlike laser which is ineffective against certain pigments. The success rate of tattoo colour removal is 100% for permanent makeup and over 92% for body tattoos.
On average most tattoos can be removed in three to four treatments depending on size and location. However as every tattoo is different this can vary from less to more treatments, depending on tattoo condition and circumstances. Large tattoos will need to be broken down into sections for treatment. Continuous bands (arm band) cannot be treated in one session.
It will generally take around 2 to 3 weeks from the initial treatment for most of the crusting to fall away, normally after around eight to twelve weeks the area is healed sufficiently for further treatment. You may also take breaks in the treatment without effecting the outcome.
This treatment is very effective at removing body tattoos and permanent makeup. The crust that forms over the area should primarily take on the colour's of the underlying tattoo, as the crust falls away it will take the unwanted tattoo ink with it. It is likely that parts of the tattoo will be almost completely gone on just the first treatment. Your tattoo can be completely removed in just a matter of months, compared to years that it takes with laser.
It is possible to treat tattoos that have previously undergone laser treatment. However laser can cause chemical changes in the pigments and sub-dermal scarring which can effect the e-raze treatment. It is perfectly safe to have laser or other treatments on your tattoo after it has been treated with the e-raze system once suitably healed. If you have recently had laser treatment then it will be necessary to wait eight to twelve weeks for it to heal before treatment.
The remover can be applied mid tattoo for immediate reversal, if you are in the middle of getting artwork applied which is not what you specified or imagined then stop and discuss this with the artist. Once the skin has resealed, then unfortunately the skin must be allowed to recover from the process which takes around eight to twelve weeks. Treatment to early may cause unnecessarily high trauma to the skin which can lead to scarring.
While the treatment is very fast, unfortunately its not a magic wand. As a sequence of treatments are normally required and the area will take at least six months after finishing treatment to begin to return to normal you can reasonably expect for it to take at least twelve months or more to resolve a tattoo. Otherwise you may reduce the visibility of a tattoo which may make it easier to temporarily cover up with make up. Employers may look favourably upon your circumstances if you are already undergoing removal, although we would recommend you discuss this directly with them before embarking on any treatment.
There have been no lasting side effects documented arising out of the removal treatment. The area may be sore for around a week after treatment and following the final treatment the area may appear slightly redder however this should fade to the normal skin colour after a few months. None of the cases in the Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001 study of 98 patients demonstrated destruction of the skin's natural pigment unlike laser where hypo pigmentation and hyper pigmentation can be more common.
You should be sure before undertaking treatment that the aftercare is something you can abide by. Otherwise this may impact the treatment and results obtained. See our aftercare section for more information on this. Other removal methods. There are many other methods that are effective for tattoo removal such as surgery, abrasion, chemical peels and home applied remedies. These vary enormously in cost and effectiveness for more information on other methods please click here.
