Are you bored of drawing on your eyebrows every day?

Don’t worry… it’s not just you! Most of Charmaine’s clients have over plucked their eyebrows over the years trying to get the perfect shape.

Some people even get up over 2 hours before they have to, to draw their eyebrows on before they leave the house… Imagine never having to do this again!

Do your eyebrows make you feel self conscious?

Eyebrows can change the shape and look of the face dramatically. Whether you want longer tails or better arches, you can improve your confidence with perfect eyebrows from the best semi permanent makeup artist in Kent.

Common myth when it comes to semi permanent makeup: “I’m worried that the permanent eyebrows will be too dark or the shape will go out of fashion, or that you might not like the shape?”

Bespoke permanent makeup as individual as you are

Semi Permanent Makeup 12

Semi permanent makeup gives you the look of professionally applied makeup everyday, with natural-looking results that can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want.

Charmaine Harding has become renowned throughout the SPMU (semi-permanent make-up) industry for her ability to tattoo beautifully natural eyebrows that are indistinguishable from the real thing.

The effect is achieved by using a specialised hand-piece to insert hypo-allergenic specialist pigments into the dermal layer of your skin – it is very similar to tattooing but refined for the delicate application of individual hair strokes.

The results fade gradually over 2-3 years, with a “colour boost” recommended around 12-18 months after the initial application – to maintain a fresh look.

Each set of brows is designed specifically to suit each individual client. There is no “standard template selection” to choose from…

Your brows will be designed for you and the best part is that YOU are involved in the design process too to ensure that you are 100% happy with the shape, style and design before any actual tattooing with the pigment begins.

One of the UK’s premier semi permanent makeup artists

Charmaine believes that semi permanent makeup is more than just a cosmetic procedure, after all, it’s on your face! However, when correctly designed and applied, semi permanent makeup has the power to transform your confidence completely. It’s her passion and drive to improve people’s quality of life that has seen Charmaine become recognised as one of the UK’s premier semi permanent makeup artists.

Treatment Advice and Prices

WHAT IS SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP?

Semi permanent makeup gives you the look of professionally applied makeup everyday, with natural-looking results that can be as subtle or as dramatic as you want.

The effect is achieved by carefully using a specialised tattoo machine to draw individual hair strokes into your brow line. Often referred to as “microblading, brow tattoos and many more” the techniques used by Charmaine to hone her signature hair stroke style have been honed over many years and extensive training as well as her own unique methods.

The results do fade gradually over 2-3 years, however a colour boost is recommended around 12-18 months after the initial application, to maintain a fresh look and keep those brows looking sharp and fresh.

WHY HAVE SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP?

Naturally, everyone wants to look their best at all times, this gives you this everyday! Waking up with perfectly shaped brows and beautiful lips without having to apply makeup, no smudging either.

IS SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP SAFE?

We use the highest quality sterile needles, which are disposed of immediately after the treatment is completed.

We follow a code of practice that ensures a safe treatment. We choose to work only with top quality pigments that meet European medical standards.

DOES IT HURT?

We want you to be relaxed during the treatment and in as little discomfort as possible, so we use anaesthetic before and during the treatment.

This is why it is VERY IMPORTANT you remember to arrive 30 MINUTES before your appointment time so we can ge the numbing cream on you before we start.

HOW LONG DOES THE APPOINTMENT TAKE?

Semi permanent makeup treatment sessions take up to two hours.

The treatment is carried out in two stages, spaced between four to six weeks apart, giving you a safe, comfortable and gradual process. The first appointment is the main one then the top-up appointment 4-6 weeks later is the refining and perfecting stage. Both are included in the price for the brows.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECOVER?

Normally the colour will be darker for the first few days. You may experience light to moderate swelling, and scabbing – THIS IS NORMAL and it is VITAL you DO NOT pick the scabs and keep the brows dry!

After the initial few days, the skin will heal and will begin to gently flake off and the treated area will lighten. This is a two-step procedure! 

It may be too light for you initially, but the top-up appointment 4-6 weeks after is when we perfect and refine in order to achieve the best results for you.

HOW LONG DOES SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?

It lasts for many years but we recommend having a colour boost around 12 months after the initial treatment allowing you to maintain a fresh look.

We recommend a colour boost approximately every 1-2 years to maintain the clarity and definition of your Semi Permanent Makeup to keep it looking really fresh.

All treatments are carried out in our luxurious salon in Ashford Kent.

WHAT IF I HAVE SPECIFIC NEEDS?

You may have specific requirements for semi-permanent makeup such as scars, alopecia, chemotherapy, vitiligo, loss of sight or other health related concerns.

Semi-permanent makeup is an extremely beneficial and very successful for these types of medical concerns.

THE DAY BEFORE

  • Avoid the gym, sauna, jacuzzi or swim for 24 hours.
  • Avoid taking ibuprofen, aspirin (unless medically advised) and alcohol the night before treatment.
  • Any tweezing, waxing, facial hair tinting, eyelash curling should be done 48 hours prior to treatment and 1 week after.
  • You should preferably not wear eyelash extensions, please remove them before arriving at the salon.
  • If you are on ANY medication at all or have had BOTOX within THREE WEEKS prior to your appointment please contact us immediately to discuss whether or not you are able to have the treatment you require as failure to do so may result in loss of deposit.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT
  • You must be in good health on the day of your treatment.
  • Please eat before you visit the salon as this will help with your blood sugar levels.
  • Please ensure you arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time (including top-up appointments) to have numbing cream applied in preparation for your treatment.
  • Arrivals more than ten minutes late without prior arrangement may result in the procedure not being able to be carried out due to time constraints of other appointments.
  • Photographs of before and after the treatment will also be taken for reference and comparison.
THE TOP-UP / RE-TOUCH APPOINTMENT
  • Your retouch will be booked on the day of your initial treatment for 4-12 weeks after. This second appointment IS included in the price you pay for your brows.
  • If you cancel and it cannot be rebooked within a period of up to 12 weeks after the initial treatment, it may deemed a re-touch and you may be charged accordingly for the extra time/work involved.
TOP AFTERCARE TIPS
  • If you can keep the area clean and DON’T PICK, your procedures will heal quickly and look beautiful. You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area, this is quite normal and will subside in a few hours.
  • Do not allow water to go directly onto the treated area – if it does, please blot dry with clean gauze – DO NOT WIPE!
  • The area may be slightly swollen; the numbing will subside within a couple of hours. The swelling should subside within 2 days. In some cases there may be bruising. This should last no longer than 1 week.
  • If the area weeps, you can gently blot the area with tissue to remove the moisture. DO NOT RUB!
  • If you are given some aftercare ointment, use sparingly. Apply 1 – 3 times a day with clean hands and a clean cotton bud. Overuse may affect pigment retention.

Do not pick or pull at the area – it may result in infections or pigment loss and incur a further charge at your top-up appointment.

PHASES OF THE HEALING PROCESS

Your treatment will follow these healing phases:

1.) Heal: as soon as your procedure is finished your body will start to heal. The skin will close and you may see a thin scab which protects the area whilst healing.

2.) Peel: after a few days the scab will fall away and you will see pigment.

3.) Fade: you will see a lighter hue of implanted colour. This colour will change over 4/6 weeks.

LONG-TERM AFTERCARE

Tips for keeping your procedure looking beautiful:

  • Consider using a waterproof, total sunblock.
  • Sun exposure will fade your procedure and the colour may change.
  • Strong chemical or glycolic/acid peels of any kind may cause pigment to lighten.
  • To keep your procedure looking its best, be sure to book a colour boost for 12/18 months following the second visit. Most clients book this when they come for the second stage of the initial treatment.

What happens at the appointment?

Semi Permanent Makeup 33

Charmaine will start with a thorough consultation where she will discuss your desired look and see whether your brows need reshaping, filling in, lifting, thickening or defining.

It’s a good idea to bring any photos or magazine clippings of the look you would like to achieve. The semi permanent makeup treatment will commence with the creation of a template drawn onto the skin with a cosmetic pencil to get the shape and style right before any actual pigment is applied.

Once you are 100% happy with this template we will proceed to anaesthetise the skin. We will then allow the anaesthetic to take full effect whilst deciding on the perfect colour pigment to use in order to compliment your colourings.

To help with pain management we will regularly apply more anaesthetic throughout the treatment to allow you comfort.

The treatment lasts between 1.5 – 2 hours and after the semi-permanent eyebrow treatment we will then give you full aftercare advice and arrange the date for you to come back for your top up 4-6 weeks later.

After the top-up treatment, you will fianlly be the proud wearer of semi-permanent makeup from Kent’s #1 salon by the most respected and experienced technician around.

Keep It Looking Fresh With A Colour Boost

To ensure that your new bespoke brows continue to look their best, we recommend that you have a colour boost treatment every 12 – 18 months in order to maintain your semi-permanent makeup.

Why Do We Recommend A Colour Boost?

Unlike a traditional tattoo which uses ink, the SPMU needles use pigment which doesn’t go as deep into the skin of the face. The reason for this is because the colour would simply blur and you would loose all definition.

For your initial procedure of SPMU, you’ll recall that two treatments were required four weeks apart in order for the pigment to take and to give you the perfect finished look.

However, for an SPMU colour boost, only a single treatment is needed in order to reinstate the freshness of your initial procedure and keep those brows looking on-point and as effortlessly elegant as they have been since your initial procedure.

Depending on how the pigment has settled into your skin, you will probably be ready for a semi-permanent makeup colour boost somewhere between every 12 to 18 months in order to maintain the colour and definition.
