Semi-Permanent Correction Work

Or Call 01656 856560


Correction work has unfortunately become increasingly prevalent over the last few years as semi-permanent makeup has become more popular. The booming popularity of microblading has significantly contributed to this growing trend, as salons learn how to microblade quickly and then offer their service for very low prices.

If you’ve undergone a semi-permanent makeup procedure before, but ended up with results you’re unhappy with, we can help you using a number of methods. We can colour correct, lighten or improve on your original treatment. However, we have found that most lower grade work will require removal by a special removal solution, and then the makeup being re-applied.

Not all semi-permanent makeup practitioners have the depth of experience we’ve developed from years of passion, training and research, but we can help you achieve the results you wanted from the outset.

During your free consultation with experienced, award-winning, semi-permanent makeup artist, Ros, your expectations will be discussed in detail. Ros will assess you and map out the options available to you based on your individual situation. In some cases, she will be able to revise existing work with clever colour correction. If this is not possible, the only option will be to look at forms of removal. This will be done with a special removal solution. When most or all of the existing pigment has been eliminated from the skin, she will work on the area again achieving the natural result you originally wanted. Our particular expertise lies in our eyebrow correction work. Please note, we currently do not offer correction work for eyeliner.

The removal solution method takes a minimum of 3 sessions, 8 weeks apart.

Step 1. The consultation. Firstly, we will discuss in detail the procedure/s you wish to undergo. We treat every client individually, taking their particular situation into consideration. There is no obligation to go through with the treatment following a consultation and we will never rush you into anything you are not 100% comfortable or happy with.

Step 2. The patch test. Your safety is important to us. As such, a patch test is required on the treatment area prior to the procedure being carried out. This is to assess whether you have any allergic reactions to either the removal solution, laser or pigments, although this is extremely rare. The patch test is carried out during the initial consultation.

Step 3. The treatment. The treatment is done in two phases. The first phase is the removal of the existing pigment. Treatment time varies, depending on the method of removal. However, the average time is approximately 5-15 mins for laser and up to an hour for the removal solution method. For phase 2, re-application, the treatment time can be up to 2 hours. This includes the initial phase where the makeup is drawn on for you to agree the shape and colouring before commencing with the treatment. Time is dedicated to deciding on the shape and colour of your semi-permanent makeup to ensure an outcome you are happy with. We also apply a high-grade topical anesthetic prior to the treatment being carried out, as our client’s comfort is very important to us.

Step 4. Aftercare. At the end of either the removal or the re-application, we will explain how to look after the treated area and you will take home aftercare instructions.

Step 5. Follow up. Come back in 6 weeks for a follow up.

Following a semi-permanent makeup procedure, we will provide you with some serum you can use on your treated area for a number of days. We would then suggest to use an All Day Shield SPF 50 on a daily basis.
