Please take a look through our most frequently asked questions. Can’t see your question? No problem! Please get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer any queries you may have.

Are there any side effects?

As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, there are certain risks associated with treatments. You may experience slight redness and swell around the treated areas and feel tenderness for a few days. This is all perfectly normal. A medical assessment and in-depth consultation will be carried out before your treatment. We will discuss all risks and potential side effects at this appointment in detail. Your treatments must be carried out by a licensed professional.

How long will the results of permanent makeup last?

How long your results last will vary and depend on how well you follow the aftercare provided to you and how well your skin type takes to the pigment.

  • Permanent eyebrows typically last 12-18 months.
  • Permanent eyeliner/lash enhancement can last up to 3 years.
  • Lip blush can last up to two years.

You will return for a colour touch-up 6-8 weeks after your initial appointment for your permanent makeup.

Will it hurt?

No treatment should cause you any pain. Before any treatment that involves breaking the skin, we apply a topical numbing cream at least 30 minutes before your treatment begins. You will feel slight discomfort and pressure from the artist carrying out the work at most. We will constantly check and make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

What aftercare should I follow?

With any cosmetic or medical procedure, aftercare is relatively easy to follow but make sure to plan your treatment around any significant event you have coming up.

  • Don’t touch, scratch, or rub the treated area
  • Don’t sleep on your face
  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning
  • Avoid physical activities that cause excessive sweating
  • Don’t wear makeup

Your aftercare will be discussed thoroughly with you in your consultation and after your initial treatment.

How often do I need a top-up for my PMU?

Again, each treatment varies, but typically top-ups are required between 12-24 months.

Are treatments available for both men and women?

Absolutely. Everyone is welcome for any treatment we have available, including permanent makeup. Some men are looking for a thicker, fuller lash line or more well-groomed eyebrows.

What happens at the consultation?

At the consultation, we will discuss with you in detail what you want to achieve from your treatment. We will also carry out a medical assessment to ensure there are no contraindications preventing us from going forward with the procedure.

Here at Beauty by Kathryn & Co, we want to make sure you feel confident and comfortable. We will go through the aftercare of your treatment and how to maintain the best results upon leaving us. The consultation allows you to ask any questions you may have to put your mind at ease.
