FAQ's 

Take a closer look at our cosmetic tattoo treatments (brows, lips and eyeliner), face enhancements (brows and lashes), waxing and laser hair removal.

Which Services Do We Provide?

Pixel and Powder Brows:

Soft pixels of colour throughout the brow works well on ALL skin types. These types of brows offer diverse styles that can be created transparent for super-soft mist results or layered and built up, for an ombre 'makeup' look. These treatments last 2 - 4 years.

Combination Brows:

A mixture of shading and hairstrokes to create more depth to a natural brow. Fluff in the front, a sharper more defined brow at the back. Tailored to each client Can last 2-3 years.

Hyper Realism Brows:

Apply 'Hairstroke' type brows, to add extra fluffiness. Can work on all skin types, but best on normal to dry. Creates a hyper-realistic hairstroke effect, that can seamlessly blend in with your brow hair or without any hair too. Can be fluffier or or more sculpted depending on your desired look.

What To Expect While The Brows are Healing?

Your brows will appear a lot darker and more intense than what they will look like once healed. Over the first few days, they will be at their darkest. They might scab and flake, which is completely normal. While they heal, this will fade to reveal a much lighter colour. Please keep in mind that everyone’s skin will heal differently! The true colour of the tattoo will not be revealed until after 4x weeks. The touch-up is then completed at 6x weeks, to perfect any areas that need some extra attention.

Who is NOT Eligible For This Treatment?

  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are unable to get this treatment.

  • Diabetics should seek a doctor’s recommendation beforehand. This is because the healing will take longer, with a higher risk of infection possible.

  • Those on blood-thinning medication should not receive this treatment. This includes aspirin, treatment of high blood pressure, pain relief (Ibuprofen), Niacin, Vitamin E, Advil. Please receive advice from your doctor before discontinuing any medication.

  • If you suffer from acne, open wounds on the face or other infections on the brows, it is strongly advised to not get this treatment done. This is because the chance of spreading the infection is higher with these clients.

  • If you suffer from keloid scarring, it is strongly recommended that you don't receive Microblading. There is the possibility of doing a test patch, during a consultation, in order to assess your healing if this applies to you. Alternatively, Ombré Brows can be done as this cosmetic tattoo is less damaging to the skin and has a quicker healing time.

  • If you have taken Accutane in the past year, you are unable to get this treatment.

  • Those who are allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine or epinephrine will need a doctor’s note. You will need to supply your own numbing cream.

  • Anyone who has any serious medical conditions will require a doctor’s note.

Policies for Booking Fees, No Shows and Late Cancellations etc

For Cosmetic Tattoo Skin Tests & Consultations, I require a minimum of 24 hours notice to reschedule, after this or (for a no show) a fee of £10 will be paid to 'The Brow Girl' (Alex Greasby). This appointment can only be moved once and the same policy applies. If the same happens again, no more consultations will be able to be accommodated.

'The Brow Girl' (Alex Greasby) requires a non-refundable booking fee at the time of making a booking to secure an appointment for all cosmetic tattooing treatments.

'The Brow Girl' (Alex Greasby) requires 48 hours notice in order to reschedule a cosmetic tattooing appointment or the non-refundable booking fee will be kept and another will be required to secure a new appointment. You can only reschedule an appointment once with a 48 hours notice or another non-refundable booking fee will be required.

If you cancel an appointment for any reason the booking fee is still non-refundable.

If you do not show up to an appointment, 100% of the treatment cost is to be paid to 'The Brow Girl' (Alex Greasby), an invoice will be sent to your email and needs to be payable within 7 days.

If you do not pay and walk out of the appointment after receiving treatment, the full amount will be claimed for at court and the police will be notified.

A perfecting session appointment must be taken within 1 - 3 months of your first appointment, if not an extra charge can occur. You can only reschedule the second application appointment once or you will loose the appointment.

Sometimes a third application is needed due to skin type this will be charged at an additional cost of £50, this must be done around the 6 week mark, post last session.

A colour boost appointment is to be expected between 6 - 18 months from your original new treatment date - ultimately dependent on skin type, colour of pigment implanted, environmental factors, UV exposure and medical grade skin treatments etc. All colour boost pricing is split into different price brackets depending on length of time.

Payment is accepted by debit, credit cards or cash. Cheques are not accepted.

Refunds will not be given prior or post procedure.

Late arrivals to an appointment more than 15 minutes may result in rescheduling your treatment due to Alex's busy schedule with a new booking fee.

Does it hurt?

A topical numbing cream is used before and during the process in order to reduce irritation and swelling. People's pain tolerances are all different, so please keep this in mind!

Please do not take asprin, naproxin, ibuprofen prior to treatment as a precaution, pain is minimal and this will effect the tattoo outcome.

What is the Process?

Cosmetic eyebrow tattooing involves a full consultation, tattoo & aftercare. This is a two-part process, with an additional touch-up tattoo being required between 6-12 weeks to fill in and perfect any areas where the pigment may have faded. This touch-up is not included within the price. Payment for treatments can therefore be done over three payments- booking fee, initial session and second session to help with justifying a bigger purchase. It must be completed within 12 weeks post initial treatment, otherwise, additional charges will apply.

Depending on how you follow the aftercare recommendations, along with your skin type and lifestyle choices, the tattoo will last between 12-36 months.

It is recommended that you maintain your eyebrow tattoo with yearly touch-ups. Please remember that a cosmetic brow tattoo will still require waxing / plucking maintenance. If you have blonde hair and have them tattooed darker then your natural brow hair colour, you will also need to continue getting them tinted or hennaed.

You're Too Expensive, I Found Someone Cheaper.

Permanent makeup is an extremely meticulous permanent cosmetic procedure and cosmetic tattooing costs vary from artist to artist. Remember, this is your face and the procedure is permanent.  When looking for a permanent makeup artist, do not nickel and dime your face.

 

Cosmetic tattooing in the UK is not regulated, therefore anyone can do it. Please research local makeup tattoo artists look at their healed work before you book an appointment. Paying less upfront might end up costing a lot more in the long run to fix.

 

Please don't ask us what offers we do - we're not that kind of establishment and our treatments speak for themselves. Sir Bruce Keogh, wrote a report some years ago, on the importance of not incentivising a medical treatment. He wisely decreed, that the decision to do so, was a crucially important one, that it needed reflection, consideration & an in-depth consultation with a professional.

 

You shouldn't be enticed, to get your face tattooed. This is your face and body. You're precious, so look after them!

You need to be the right candidate with realistic

expectations, you need to know what you're getting into.

You need a professional, to sit down & explain a bespoke treatment plan for you, without pushing you. You need someone not practicing on the sly during a pandemic. Only after this, should you go ahead with anything, if you feel it's right for you and your expectations are realistic.

So no. We don't do offers. We're experienced / accredited, cosmetic consultants and have permanent locations for accountability and attend multiple courses every year to stay on top of our game. Businesses aren't charities.
