Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose Semi-Permanent Make-up?

Beautiful translates in many ways, but for me there is no doubt that having natural semi permanent make-up is the best you can bring to your feature. All women would love to look their best 24h. It will be amazing to have your brows at all times symmetrical, full – to have the desired shape at all times. Semi Permanent Lips are perfect for those women who lost their lip definition, the lips can look fuller 24h, in the perfect shape and colour. You will wake -up every morning with make-up, you will be going to the swimming pool and the make-up won’t smudge.

How long does a semi-permanent make-up appointment take?

I always book a client for 2h15minutes, in this time I work on the skin 45minutes, the rest of the time is the consultation and preparation.

Is semi-permanent make-up painful?

It Is not a painful procedure, I always numb the skin before I start working on the skin. Once treatment starts, more anaesthetic is applied and discomfort is reduced.

Is semi-permanent make-up expensive

Compared with other cosmetic enhancement, for example Botox or Fillers which have to be renewed every 3- 9 months, Semipermanent Make-up is a comparatively low cost option.
It will last for years ( between 1year and a half – to 3 -4 years)
It won’t smudge and it is a great time saver.

The cost of the procedure shouldn’t be the most important factor when choosing your technician.
Always search for healed results. Showing healed results is a great indicator of talent & honesty.

How long is the recovery time for semi-permanent make-up

After finishing the procedure, i always offer the aftercare instructions and the cream that will help recovery quicker.
The recovery interval general varies from 5 to 10 days, depending on each client body system.

Are there any contraindications I should be aware of?

This procedure is not suitable whilst pregnant, breastfeeding (please speak with me about it), on antibiotics in the last 2 weeks, or on any medication that affects healing, such as immune system issues or skin condition as it might result in complications. Also is contraindicated to insulin dependent diabetics, people with heart conditions and those who are prone to keloid scarring.

What is the difference between IPL & laser?

Laser technology is more effective and achieve better results than IPL. Laser treatments are fare more precise, more effective and safer on any skin type.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

The treatment is pain free, some clients report minor discomfort during treatment.

How many laser hair removal sessions do i need?

I recommend 6-12 sessions, spaced about 5-6 weeks apart, to achive 70-90% permanent hair reduction.
Darker , stronger hairs can respond faster.
Laser detects only the hair that have colour.

Some hairs might become active again after 1 year/ 1 year and a half, so you will need to book for a top-up maintenance session (1-2 sessions a year)


Laser hair removal is safe, but it can occasionally cause side effects such as discomfort.
I always book a free consultation, where a patch test will take place .
I use the safest and latest technology and in my years of experience I never had any problem.
It may also not be suitable for everyone, including pregnant women and people with certain skin types. There’s no evidence to suggest that laser hair removal causes skin cancer

Is laser suitable for PCOS ( Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)?

As PCOS affects the body’s hormone levels, excessive hair growth. If you consider Laser hair removal, this will be very helpful, just you need to take in consideration that you will need to have more sessions and you will need to continue to have the treatments on a regular basis, to maintain a balance of the hair growth.
Many of my clients with PCOS have excellent results from laser hair removal and significantly improved their self-confidence.

How does Laser Hair removal work?

During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
