What are cosmetic tattoo pigments made from and are they safe?

All pigments used are the best quality and highly safe. Most pigments are Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide based, a safe non-reactive substance and suspended in distilled water, alcohol and glycerine. The pigments are specifically designed for implantation into human skin.


How long will the colour last?

The longevity of colour in the skin cannot always be predicted. Some skins hold colour longer and stronger than others, while others fade leaving a light residue in the skin. Pigment may fade or change according to metabolism, lifestyle, skin type, medications, age, smoking, alcohol, sun exposure, and use of active skincare products such as Retin-A and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s)


How long do results last?

lips Microblading is semi-permanent, it will begin to noticeably fade after 24-36 months, even though its only gradual fading.  Some therapists will quote up to 10 years (but this is usually PERMANENT lops performed with a tattoo machine and not Lips Microblading which is SEMI-PERMANENT).

There is no guarantee as each individual will respond differently.

More frequent touch ups may be required where a client chose a soft lighter shade initially, or clients who did not follow after care advice.

Semi-permanent micro pigmentation is not an exact science, so each client is different.
Some clients even find they would like the look FRESH and even come for a touch up after 12 months. This is purely a client’s preference.


Q. Does it hurt?

Not usually. Topical cream is applied up to 60 minutes prior to procedure, and a liquid topical anesthetic is applied onto the lips after each pass during the first 2 passes. There is usually 3- 4 passes at each treatment.

Everyone has a different level of sensitivity so topical anesthetics are applied before and during the treatment to alleviate any sensation or discomfort.

It is recommended that music is played during the procedure, to distract the client and it’s a nice touch to offer your client a warm blanket is supplied for your comfort.
