PMU - What to Expect

PMU - What to Expect

Firstly, you will receive a medical form via email to fill and send back. This is to check you are a suitable candidate for permanent makeup.

Secondly, we discuss results and manage expectations. Taking into account skin type and skin condition we discuss the ideal shape and colour for you (this is a great time for you to show us any reference photos you have).

Next, we pre-draw a shape individual to you to give an idea of shape and size. Nothing goes ahead until you are 100% happy with the shape and colour choice.

The treatment begins, working brow to brow with the highest quality inks and tools available for the best results. This is a low pain treatment, you may experience a scratchy feeling and discomfort is minimal.

Finally, we show you your brows and book your touch up appointment.

Please bare in mind the following information:
