Semi-permanent make-up follows the same underlying principles as tattooing, in which pigment, in the form of natural iron oxide is applied to the outer layer of the skin.

Additionally, it benefits those with allergies to conventional make-up and will never smear or run, even through watery eyes, sleep, perspiration or other environmental factors such as hot or cold weather. you can choose from a number of different treatments that will be discussed with you during the consultation process.
Perfectly shaped eyebrows
Perfectly shaped eyebrows, beautifully shaped eyebrows frame, harmonise your facial features and accentuate your eyes, giving them more emphasis. Thinning eyebrow hair is caused by a number of factors, including over-plucking, injury, medical issues or simply the ageing process. Semi-permanent makeup will take away the hassle of filling in eyebrows daily.
Younger looking, fuller lips
Your lips lose natural colour and shape through the ageing process. Semi-permanent make-up can give back your definition, fullness and colour without the hassle of buying and applying expensive makeup.
Enhance your eye colour with eyeliner that does not smudge and looks perfect all day and night. Semi-permanent make-up is no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed, but to make sure your treatment is as comfortable and relaxing as possible, an anaesthetic is applied to the area.
- Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Fine lines and wrinkles appear when muscles in the face are being over used. Botulinum toxin temporarily inactivates the muscle, stopping the over-usage from occurring. This gives the face a more relaxed appearance. Lines and wrinkles become smoother and eventually can disappear altogether.
Areas that Botulinum toxin is most effective for are:
• Crow’s feet
• Frown lines between the eyebrows
• Lines on the forehead
The initial effects of treatment become visible after 48-72 hours. The maximum effect is reached after about 2 weeks. Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. Effect of treatment lasts 3-4 months, after which, re-treatment is required to keep the muscles relaxed. If the area is not re-treated, the muscles return to exactly how they were functioning before treatment.
- Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are agents made up of hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule, which is naturally produced by the body and found in almost all living things. They are used to “fill up” areas that may have lost their original hyaluronic acid and collagen, due to the ageing process. As we age, our body reduces the amount of collagen and hyaluronic that it produces. These are important agents that keep the skin looking plump and firm.
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin into areas that may have lost their natural “fullness” resulting in firmer, fuller skin. The initial effects of treatment become visible immediately, although treated areas can appear fuller due to the body’s natural swelling response. Initial swelling dies down within a few days, revealing the final result.
Fillers have been used for many years and if placed well, do not look like the dreaded “trout pout” All fillers we use are non-permanent and last around 6-9 months, and are gradually broken down into water by the body. Re-treatment is required to keep the desired effect. If the area is not re-treated, it returns to exactly how it was before treatment.
- Skin Needling
Skin Needling Facial (which costs £50) allows for the introduction of active substances into the deeper skin layers, exactly where the skin needs it most. Normal creams and serums are too thick to be fully absorbed into the skin, which can reduce effectiveness. The Skin Needling Facial (which costs £50) system in essence “pushes” the substances into the deeper layers of the skin which helps achieve the desired result. Serums containing peptides, hyaluronic acid and amino acids are used to boost the skins cell regeneration. This helps to re-activate the body’s collagen production. Great for those who would like to prevent fine lines and want something with a bit more oomph than a normal facial! MESO ME med with Hyaluron and non toxic hexapeptides to reduce wrinkles and to stimulate collagen production. Suitable for clients with wrinkles and skin that is beginning to sag. Treatment costs £50 per session, and just like any other facial, it is recommended every 4-6 weeks for best results. To see faster results, we offer an intense programme – once a week for 6 weeks then once a month thereafter.
The Dermaroller is a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium micro needles which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding. This accurate and minimally invasive penetration allows much higher absorption of serums and creams. It can also stimulate skin’s self-repair and regeneration as it can stimulate the skin’s healing response.
The concept of Skin Needling Facial (which costs £50) or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling Facial (which costs £50) allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin that triggers new collagen production, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. Skin Needling Facial (which costs £50) provides results similar to Laser Resurfacing and Chemical Peels but at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime. Dermaroller treatment activates dormant skin cells. The skin cycle is 6 weeks long so initial effects can take 6 weeks to become apparent. However, a course of three treatments is normally advised for best results.
