Semi-permanent eyebrows involve depositing an industry regulated pigment into the dermal layer of the skin with the use of a needle, giving the illusion of real hairs.
Anybody and everybody! Semi-permanent eyebrows are great for those who may suffer from skin sensitivities to traditional make up/eyebrow tints. Or just simply anybody that wants to “wake up to make up” and have a natural enhancement to their eyebrow appearance. The results of semi-permanent eyebrows build the clients confidence, proving to be a luxurious treat to an almost maintenance free, natural look. Some medical/skin conditions and medication are not suitable for semi-permanent eyebrows. If you have any doubts it is always best to seek a doctors attention and ask the technician prior to booking an appointment.
Technically, any form of tattooing is permanent. However, hair stroke semi-permanent eyebrows are an extremely delicate form of tattooing the skin, meaning they fade at a much quicker rate than an ordinary body tattoo, which is why they are referred to as ’semi-permanent’. Also, it is dependent on how the eyebrows are looked after post treatment. For example, constant/excessive sun exposure/UV rays will result in the pigment fading faster, meaning more top up procedures will be required to maintain the darkness and definition of the eyebrows.
Sometimes, a second appointment is required after the initial treatment, which is often referred to as a ‘top up’ treatment. This appointment allows any adjustments to be made to the eyebrows. However, this is not always required and is totally dependent on the client’s skin and aftercare of the initial treatment.
On average, top up treatments are advised roughly every 12 months to maintain the desired colour depth and shape of the eyebrows.
Everyone has a different threshold of pain. However, clients often find the tweezing during the eyebrow tidy up more painful than the actual treatment. The majority of clients say it was not as bad as they were expecting. With the client’s permission, topical anesthetic is used to numb the area, minimising discomfort.

A detailed after care form is provided at the end of the treatment. However please note, sun exposure is not advised for 30 days prior to your appointment, and for 30 days after your treatment has been carried out.
