Permanent Make Up

Permanent make-up is a form of cosmetic tattooing also known as micropigmentation. Pharmaceutical grade pigments are applied into the second layer of the skin to create beautiful colour that resembles perfectly applied make-up.


Whether you suffer with thin or sparse brows due to over plucking or you have fuller brows but would like some more shape, colour and definition, permanent make-up can help give you realistic and natural looking brows, which last for years.

Using a hair stroke effect, which mimics the natural hair or an ombre powder effect I aim to make your brows look as natural as possible.

The procedure will commence with the creation of a template drawn onto the skin with a cosmetic pencil. Once you are 100% happy with this template we will proceed to anesthetise the skin. We will then decide on the perfect colour pigment to use in order to compliment your colouring.


Permanent eyeliner helps to define your eyes, you can choose between a soft and natural look or a thicker more dramatic look.


Pigment is implanted to apply colour and to correct any asymmetry you may have resulting in a natural lip colour. Just add lip balm to make it look like you have lip gloss or lipstick on.

All procedures take a minimum of 2 visits and as a technician I have been taught that "less is best".

Each visit should be spaced out between 4 - 6 weeks but within 3 months and you should follow the prescribed aftercare advice to ensure your desired result.

A 'colour boost' is recommended between every 6 - 18 months to keep your permanent make up looking fresh and vibrant. How often you need to come back depends on skin type, environmental factors and how well you look after your permanent make up.


Microdermabrasion is a non invasive, pain free cosmetic procedure in which the dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a machine that uses tips covered in tiny diamonds. The removal of the dead skin cells reveals the softer, brighter and more youthful looking skin underneath. Additionally, this treatment helps increase blood flow and collagen production to renew and rehydrate the skin.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

  • Removal of dead skin cells.
  • Brightens the complexion.
  • Increased collagen production for more youthful, plump looking skin.
  • Reduces acne and superficial acne scars.
  • Reduces age spots.
  • Extracts blackheads and whiteheads.
  • Improves overall skin health.


This Glycolic Acid Resurfacer is a deeply exfoliating treatment using a unique blend of anti-aging ingredients to retexture damaged skin. Using 30% Glycolic Acid to firm and Lilac Plant Stem Cells to protect skin from environmental pollution, this is an ideal treatment for those with significant UV damage. Not recommended for very sensitive skin.

Benefits of a Skin Peel

  • Removal of dead skin cells.
  • Brightens the complexion.
  • Helps to even skin tone and texture.
  • Stimulation of collagen production for youthful and plump looking skin.
  • Reduction of pigmentation and sun damage.
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Manages acne/blemishes and prevents future breakouts.

Dermaplaning is a physical method of exfoliation that consists of using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells. This treatment also removes the "peach fuzz" (fine vellus facial hair) to reveal a smooth, bright, glowing complexion.

Eliminating the annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup, dermaplaning allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup, giving an airbrushed look.

Are There Any Side Effects?
Dermaplaning is safe and effective for most skin types, so side effects are minimal. Those with sensitive skin may be slightly pink for a few hours following treatment. People with the following skin issues should however avoid treatment -

  • Active acne
  • Extremely sensitive skin
  • An allergy to nickel
  • Use of Accutane within 6 months

Will the Hair Grow Back Thicker and Darker?
No matter where it grows on your body, shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker or darker. It is biologically impossible for hair to grow back thicker because of shaving. Shaving simply creates a blunt tip on the hairs, which many people interpret as greater thickness.


What Is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to target fine lines, acne scars, large pores, and uneven skin tone by heating the upper dermis of your skin, which accelerates collagen regrowth. Laser Genesis can be combined with other lasers, microneedling and exfoliating facials to improve skin texture and tone to rejuvenate the face (including the lips and area around the eye), neck, décolletage and hands. In the case of epidermal melasma, laser light facilitates the breakup of the superficial pigmentation and thus improve melasma.

What To Expect?
Quick and relaxed, with minimal downtime, Laser Genesis is safe for ALL skin types. Perfect for an instant lift just before a big event, results from a single treatment will show for around 10 days. A course of around 4 treatments, 3 weeks apart is advised for longer lasting results.

What Are The Benefits?
Reduces redness, reduces acne scarring, promotes a gorgeous glow, smooths out fine lines, stimulates new collagen, boosts skin tightening and diminishes the appearance of pores.

Conditions Laser Genesis Can Treat -

  • ACNE


What Is IPL?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment generates a broad spectrum of light to heat the dermal tissue without harming or removing the epidermal (outer layers) of the skin. The body's natural processes then work to break down and remove these marks and impurities, visibly reducing skin imperfections. This type of light treatment can soften and reduce the appearance of brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, thread veins, acne, rosacea, freckles and age pigmentation spots.

What To Expect?
A cooling gel is first applied to the area that will be treated and then the light is gently applied. Each session takes around 30 minutes and the treatment causes little discomfort (some patients compare the sensation to that of a rubber band flicking against the skin). You may experience some redness for a couple of hours post treatment but the prolonged downtime is very minimal if any. 4-6 treatments are recommended around 4 weeks apart and 1-2 maintenance sessions a year thereafter.

What Are The Benefits?
Skin will appear fresher and rejuvenated after just a few treatments and the benefits of a full course (approx 6 sessions) can last up to a year. IPL can dramatically increase collagen production, tone and improve elasticity of the skin and can also be used in combination with dermaplaning, microdermabrasion and peels to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.

Conditions Limelight IPL Can Treat -

  • ACNE

"Wake Up With Make Up"

All procedures take a minimum of 2 visits and as a technician I have been taught that "less is best".

I advise that your first appointment creates a softer effect which can be altered on your second visit.

Each visit should be spaced out between 4 - 6 weeks but within 3 months and you should follow the prescribed aftercare advice to ensure your desired result.

A 'colour boost' is recommended every 12 - 18 months to keep your make up looking fresh and vibrant.
