FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE THE PRICES FOR EACH TREATMENT?
Please contact Ellana directly for pricing on all treatments, you can contact her directly via the contact page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and she will respond within 24 hours.
DOES SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP HURT?
You may feel slight discomfort during some of the treatments, however generally speaking with the numbing techniques Ellana’s uses on her clients by pre numbing and also numbing throughout the treatments are to ensure comfort.
IS THE TOUCH UP APPOINTMENT NECESSARY?
All semi permanent treatments are a 2-step process to complete the final result. After your initial appointment a touch up appointment is required 4-8 weeks after as during the healing process it is very common for some of the pigment to not retain in the skin successfully, so a touch up appointment is effectively ‘touching up’ those areas and overall tweaking and perfecting the treatment. We can also make amendments if necessary to the shape or colour of pigment if you desire.
IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
You must be over 18 for all Semi Permanent makeup treatments. Please do not feel offended if I ask for a copy of identification on appointment. If I believe you may be under the age of 18, I will not be able to carry out the treatment.
HOW LONG DO THE TREATMENTS LAST?
Microblading can last up to 18 months if aftercare is followed correctly, if the client has the ideal skin type for the treatment. 12 months is the minimum time Microblading will last for, before needing an annual touch up for a colour boost. With very oily skin, a touch up is needed after around 6 months.
Lip Blush, Ombre Powder Brows and Lash Enhancement will last around 2-3 years although an annual touch up appointment is recommended to refresh the colour.
I HAVE HAD PREVIOUS SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP, ARE YOU ABLE TO COVER THE PREVIOUS WORK?
This depends on the existing Semi permanent makeup/Microblading. Please feel free to send me a picture when enquiring and I can assess whether I will be able to cover successfully, or if you will need removal first. Please note, I do not offer touch up appointments to non-existing clients. This would need to be a new procedure, depending on how much the existing pigment has faded.
CAN YOU HAVE TREATMENTS DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING?
No, you cannot have Semi Permanent Make Up if pregnant or breastfeeding. You must wait until you have stopped breastfeeding, then have the treatment.
CAN I HAVE TREATMENTS WHILST ON ACNE MEDICATION?
You will need to wait at least 6 months until you have completed the course of acne medication.
WILL I NEED AN ALLERGY TEST?
All clients are required to have an allergy test at least 24 hours before procedure.
HOW LONG SHOULD I SCHEDULE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Treatment times will vary depending on which treatment you will have. On average Ellana advises to leave a 2 hour window for your appointment but will be able to confirm when you book your appointment.
