Define your eyebrows, enhance your natural beauty
Permanent Brows has been around since 1902, starting off striking and bold, mostly looking very artificial and evolving over the years to become natural and delicate due to the low pigment deposition depth compared to traditional tattoos, the treatment is professionally called micropigmentation. Micropigmentation is done shallower, which makes it not permanent and therefore should be refreshed every few years.
PMU brows will help you save an extra 5 minutes of your make-up routine as well as enhance your natural beauty with minimal effort.
Not only do PMU brows help the average person save time and money, they can also help those who suffer from allergies to cosmetics or those who have lost hair/symmetry due to an autoimmune disease, trichotillomania, alopecia, chemotherapy and any other conditions, helping to restore their confidence and make them feel beautiful again.
Today's Eyebrow Tatto Compared to Traditional Tattoo
During your visit you will be asked questions in your consultation to help make your treatment the best it can be, and you will have an opportunity to discuss what you are looking for.
After the consultation the brows will be measured and drawn on with a pencil to allow you to see a preview of the shape and make any changes before the treatment begins.
The treatment is not complete and does not present a final result until a top up appointment is done within 4-6 weeks.

Permanent Makeup FAQ
General permanent makeup questions
A technician uses a needle to insert pigments into the dermis layer of the skin to change the skin’s appearance.
The most common changes are made to the lips and brows to imitate the look of cosmetics like lipstick or brow powder/pomade.
Just think, how convenient it would be to enjoy perfectly shaped eyebrows, wide-awake, pretty eyes and beautifully contoured lips, without the effort of time-consuming makeup rituals? All subtle, soft and perfectly in place with no smudging, no mess, no problem.
With permanent makeup you have the confidence of knowing you look the best you can look, right round the clock.
The choice is yours. Prior to the procedure, we will guide you and provide professional advice. We will show you exactly how you will look like at the end of the treatment.
We will adapt the best look for you, according to your age and style, your face structures and shape.
The healed result will look very natural.
This will subside and become lighter as the skin heals. This process can take up to 14 days.
Throughout your eyebrow tattooing treatment we will check with you to see if you’re in any pain. Our clients usually rate the discomfort as about 2 out of 10, if that.
A medical history form will need to be completed and you will need to let us know what medication you are taking.
Once this is completed, we will be able to advise as to whether or not permanent makeup is suitable or safe for you to have done.
It is totally safe. A patch test is carried out before treatment starts to ensure you’re not allergic to the pigment or the anaesthetic. The treatment is carried out using sterile individually packaged items which are one use only, so are disposed of straight after use.
After the initial procedure, touch-up might be required but no sooner than one month and as much as three months later.
Permanent makeup is generally considered safe. It carries the same risks as other tattoos. The most serious is the risk of infection from improperly sanitized tools and equipment.
Any unusual side effects such as heat, blistering and extreme itching are extremely rare and although a patch test is carried out a minimum of 48 hours prior to any treatment an allergic response/reaction could still occur at any time post treatment, even years after. If any unusual side effects occur, then please seek medical advice straight away and inform us.
You will have your top up visit booked right away in our studio after your main PMU treatment.
This is because after your first treatment some of the colour may not have stayed, this happens because the skin tries to reject the pigment.
This can be corrected at your top up appointment.
Lighter colours will fade faster than darker ones. The tones used for eyebrows are usually soft and natural, making them more susceptible to fading.
Fading eyebrow tattoos are sometimes caused by a few external factors like exposure to UV rays, pigment removal by the body’s immune system, some anti-aging face products and natural cell rejuvenation.
Everyone is different, but as a general rule the surface skin heals between 3-7 days after the treatment, and 10-14 days below the surface.
Looking after your permanent makeup as it heals is not difficult or time consuming – all you will need to do is follow our simple steps.
We will explain these requirements in full and provide you a printed copy of these aftercare requirements on your visit.
How your skin heals after permanent makeup is out of our control, however we will take great care to discuss treatments we know will enhance your face or body the way you want it to.
Of course, it would be a pleasure for us to help you correct any imperfections you don’t like and restore your natural desired look.
You can wear mineral cosmetics immediately after the treatment, however, you need to wait until the treatment area has healed before wearing traditional cosmetics.
Current guidelines from the National Blood Service require anyone with permanent cosmetics to wait for 4 months after their treatment before giving blood.
It is important to remember that some of these procedures can alter the shape of your lips and eyebrows.
Simply inform your laser technician that you are wearing permanent cosmetics prior to the treatment and they will act accordingly to accommodate for this.
Or have your treatment 4 weeks before you go away. Having a tan within 4 weeks of treatment either side will cause the pigment to heal darker than expected.
It is advised that you do not drink alcohol the night before, or on the day of, your treatment. This can affect pigment retention.
This should not prevent you from being able to have an MRI scan, but is information the practitioner will need to be aware of.
Sometimes people with permanent makeup who undergo MRIs experience swelling or burning around the tattooed area, but these effects are rare and temporary.
Additionally, our studio has been inspected and certified by South Ribble Borough Council.
However, if there is an opportunity to do so, we will offer additional time for an additional fee.

Permanent makeup BROWS questions
There’ll be a consultation where we’ll make sure your natural colouring, face shape and desired look are all carefully considered before creating a template for your new, enhanced brows.
We use an electronic handpiece to trace over the template, so the colour is precisely infused.
We’ll take pictures before and after so you can see the amazing differences.
Afterwards we will show you your new look and apply aftercare products to soothe your skin and encourage healing.
Please note that at this stage your PMU is still not finished. You will have your free top up appointment booked at the end of your visit.
A permanent brow treatment can take up to 2.5 hours, but this depends from person to person.
Absolutely. Typically, the area around your treatment may be slightly red, but that should only be the after-effect.
Some people think that they may have to take time off work after the treatment, but this is not necessary unless you choose to do so. You should be able to get straight back to work immediately after your treatment.
Permanent makeup can last years if looked after correctly and if you keep up with your top ups.
After your initial treatment you will be booked in for one complimentary touch up approximately 4-6 weeks after the initial appointment.
After that you won’t need to be seen for another 12-18 months.
Yes – a complimentary top up visit and aftercare materials are included with your treatment.
Yes, it can be useful to see what colour tones you have been using for your brows.
Any waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the treatment.
You should wait a minimum of five days between having electrolysis and permanent makeup for brows.
No. We prefer you to keep your own brows – don’t even tweeze them before you come in as we like to work within your natural shape if possible.
We will work with whatever brow hairs you have. It’s a common myth that brow hairs need to be shaved off for permanent makeup treatments but this is not the case at all.
The only time brow hairs may need to be removed is if there is any errant growth which needs tidying up, either through tweezing or plucking.
Before the treatment
For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one retouch procedure, usually between four and six weeks after the initial procedure.
Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure.
This will subside and become 30-40% lighter as the tissue heals.
This process can take up to 10 days.

- Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor
- Do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment and at the day of the treatment.

After the treatment

- Do not scratch itchy areas, itchiness is common for the first few days
- Cleanse brows twice a day with wet cotton pad and add a thin layer of cream provided by us if necessary.
