Consultation

1. Make Contact

Whatever procedure you want the process will start with a consultation.

Either give me a call or complete the contact form with any questions you have on semi permanent make-up or any of the other treatments I offer.  My number is 07493 030 030.  My email address is kim.duffy50@gmail.com.  If I’m unavailable it’s because I’m with a client.  I will always return calls within 48 hours.  I’m happy to answer any questions you have and discuss your requirements.

2. Book a Consultation or Procedure Appointment

Following contact, and when all your initial questions have been answered satisfactorily, you can then book a consultation or a consultation/procedure appointment.  The consultation is very important as this is the opportunity for us to meet and have an informal chat about your expectations, in a relaxed environment.

Option 1 : Consultation and Treatment Booked in the Future

If this is your first spmu (semi permanent make-up) treatment, you might just want to come for a consultation initially.  This will give you the opportunity to meet me, see my treatment room and to ask any further questions you have in person.  To then go home, fully informed, and think whether you wish to follow-up with the semi permanent make-up treatment we’ve discussed at a later date. There is no pressure to follow your consultation with the actual treatment. If following the consultation you have decided to go ahead with the treatment, a date, in the future, can be booked, and you will leave the consultation with a patch test kit and a semi permanent make-up procedure date.

Option 2 : Consultation Followed by the Treatment

If you’ve decided you’d like to have your semi permanent make-up treatment follow the consultation, the patch test kit will be posted to you before your actual consultation/procedure date to check your compatibility with pigments and numbing cream (patch test kit), and instructions on how and when to carry out the tests, together with a confirmation letter which will be sent to you by post. If there’s not enough time to send out the patch test kit, you have the option to sign a waiver. On the day of the procedure a full consultation will determine your suitability for the procedure.

3. The Actual Consultation

The consultation will be thorough and informative, answering any questions or concerns you may have. A medical and consent form will be completed for your proposed semi permanent make-up treatment to ensure your suitability for the procedure. I will discuss with you what you would like to achieve with permanent make-up and I will help you decide on a realistic choice just right for you. Depending on what treatment you choose, I will assess the right shape for brows, assist with eyeliner and lip colours. The correct pigment will be selected to suit your own skin tone to complement the overall appearance of your skin, hair and eye colour to enhance your facial symmetry.

Brows will be drawn on you with a special pencil to give you an idea of the shape and how that shape will enhance your face. You can request as many changes as you want. No procedure will be carried out until you are 100% happy with the shape and position. If you have just booked a consultation, the next step is to book your actual procedure appointment.

Consultation Duration Allow 30-60 minutes

4. At this stage the chosen procedure normally takes place

Before any tattooing is started, medical and consent forms need to be completed and photographs need to be taken.  Pigments need to be selected and anaesthetic numbing cream applied.

5 Before Procedure Photography

Before photos are very important for both you, as the client, and me, as the technician. They are good for you to have as a point of reference and they are very important to me as I need to keep a record of all semi permanent make-up treatments carried out and a good reference tool when you return for any future treatments.

6. Anaesthetic cream

An anaesthetic numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to ensure your maximum comfort and topped up continuously throughout the procedure.

7. Procedure carried out

The selected pigments are implanted into the skin using tiny needles used with the latest state of the art computerised equipment.

Procedure Duration 2 hours from start to completion. Some procedures may take longer to perform as they are reviewed on a case by case basis. I will advise you at point of booking.

8. Post-procedure photography

Photos are taken after your semi permanent make-up treatment.  They are very important for both you, as the client, and me, as the technician. They are good for you to have as a point of reference and they are very important to me as legally I need to keep a record of all treatments carried out and a good reference tool when you return for any future treatments.

9. Aftercare

Important aftercare details will be explained to you to ensure you take care of the treated areas for the next 7 days. You will also be given an aftercare leaflet and balm to apply for 7 days. If you have any questions following your treatment please don’t hesitate to call me.

10. Payment and book your Retouch Treatment

I accept all major credit/debit cards and cash. I do not accept cheques. To secure any booking I ask for a £30 deposit.  This amount will be deducted from the treatment price, which is payable following your first treatment.  Re-touch appointments should be booked 4-12 weeks post procedure.

11. Re-touch Appointment

This appointment allows me to boost your colour and perfect any final adjustments that may be necessary to ensure your permanent make-up enhancement is complete.
