Welcome to Catherine Costas – Beauty / Permanent Makeup
Every women admittedly or not would love to wake up each day looking and feeling fabulous without the added stresses and time consuming effort of hair and make up to add to an already busy day.
This is why we have zoned in on a few natural looking and harmless beauty tricks to enhance your appearance. Through semi permanent make up (also known as SMPU) you can have 24/7 perfected eyebrows, lips and eyeliner to suit your individual needs and looks. Using organic pigments and cosmetic tattooing we can create amazing results lasting up to 18 months.
Do I need a patch test?
Each client must have a patch test and fill out forms outlining any reasons why permanent make up may not be appropriate. For example, medications and pregnancy would affect the treatment. Patch tests can be carried out at the clinic or sent via post.
What happens at the appointment?
After a full discussion with regards to shape colour and exceptions, numbing cream will be added to the area to be treated. We will then begin to outline the area (excluding eyeliner). Once the outline/template has been agreed we will apply further numbing lotion and begin the treatment.
Does it hurt?
Numbing creams are applied before and through all permanent make up treatments to minimise discomfort.
How quickly will i see results?
Results are instant, however the true results will be visible once fully healed. Colours will fade by 50% in the first week or so after treatment, leaving a more natural look.
Will i need a top up?
Yes. Your top appointment should be booked 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment. Please note both treatments are including in the price. Your treatment is not complete until after your top up appointment.
We also offer a fabulous lash treatment to create thicker, longer lashes without the need for lash extensions, mascara or lash curlers. Our low maintenance lash lift treatment will last you up to 8 weeks and includes a tint.
