Eyebrows are the most important feature of the face. They accentuate your eyes, enhance your expressions and emphasise facial symmetry.

Whether you enjoy an active gym lifestyle, a corporate traveller or a busy Mom – you’ll never have to worry about your eyebrows smudging off or losing shape, leaving you free to live your life.
Applied using advanced microblade, nano and powdering combo techniques, our permanent eyebrows set a new standard in natural looking brows for every skin-type.

During your appointment, I will first design your eyebrows using a cosmetic pencil and let you visualise your best shape possible. Every brow design is unique to suit each client’s individual facial features, bone structure and personality. Twenty minutes after applying powerful topical numbing solutions, I will then carefully place the pigment colour strokes individually, hair by hair, slowly building up an elegant eyebrow design that looks authentic, natural and flawlessly you!

In short, scalp micropigmentation is a highly specialised process of tattooing the scalp with thousands of tiny micro-dots in order to give the resemblance of stubble – a short buzz-cut appearance which looks best when the hair is kept really short. This procedure takes years off your appearance!
To the experienced practitioner, scalp micro pigmentation is essentially a simple medical procedure, it is non-invasive and there is no down time. A specialised pigment (which is not prone to migration) is matched to your existing hair colour (if any exists) or skin tone and a hairline is designed based on the face proportions. Then the process of adding thousands of micro-dots to the scalp begins – focussing on the areas of thinning hair, creating a seamless even flow throughout. The same process may be used to camouflage a variety of head scars. Numbing solutions are available, however, minimal pain is experienced as the pigment placement is shallow.
This procedure is charged according to the applicable Norwood scale for men or Ludwig scale for women – see pics in the gallery.
While this can be a time-consuming procedure, it is a truly excellent alternative – fast-growing in popularity, should available retail therapies not be working for you. Easily takes 10 to 15 years off your appearance!

The tattoo that seemed like a good idea at the time, is frequently becoming a problem and can even cause embarrassment in later life.
As a twice-certified removal specialist, we use the latest products and techniques to achieve an effective and neutralised end result. Currently, the there are a number of effective tattoo removal options. Most methods involve chemical extraction removal products, which use specific organic and/or inorganic chemicals – each with its own extraction protocols.
There are a variety of products available which, in short, is applied in a similar method to the original tattoo and is essentially designed to draw the tattoo pigment/ink out of the skin – ultimately removing the unwanted tattoo over a period of two to six months. The treatments are usually repeated over 3 to 5 treatments, spaced at six to eight week intervals – depending on the individual condition, size and saturation of the original tattoo. These tattoo removal methods are better suited to smallish tattoos. Unwanted permanent makeup is usually removed in one or two sessions.
This form of tattoo removal is highly effective and usually leaves minimal scarring (if any) and is a more cost effective solution to laser, which may ‘read’ (and therefore remove only) limited colours or surgical removal – which will usually leave scars.
As with all of our procedures, in-depth home care instructions will be given. All removal treatments will include specific healing protocols which need to be strictly followed in order to deliver the best possible end result. Your safety, the health of your skin and a satisfactory end result are our primary focus – regretfully we cannot take on any removal work which could compromise any of these. Tattoo removal is not an exact science – assessments and our best advice will be given at consultations, which precede every procedure.
