Frequently Asked Questions

Here’s the scoop on Permanent Makeup
Why Choose Permanent Makeup?

Everyone wants to look the best they can, naturally. Think how convenient it would be to enjoy perfectly shaped eyebrows, wide-awake, pretty eyes and beautifully contoured lips, without the effort of time-consuming makeup rituals. All subtle, soft and perfectly in place with no smudging, no mess, no problem.

Am I suitable for Permanent Makeup?

Most people are suitable for some form of permanent makeup. Jennifer will  explore with you precisely which treatments will suit you best. This is a one-to-one consultation and includes a discussion of your desires and expectations and any features you wish to correct or balance. From this discussion, Jennifer will recommend the specific treatments she believes will achieve the effect you want and how it can be achieved.

How long does Permanent Makeup last?

Permanent Make-up can last for several years but this is dependent on several factors including skin type, sun exposure and lifestyle.

While  it is ‘low maintenance’ it is not ‘no maintenance’. Rather like hair color it will need refreshing but far less often.

Jennifer recommends a color refresher treatment every twelve to eighteen months to maintain perfect results.

Is Permanent Makeup safe?

Absolutely. All pigments are made of natural minerals that are specifically selected for their safe, non-toxic and hypo allergenic properties. They are trusted by technicians and cosmetic surgeons throughout the world. ophthalmologists actually recommend eye procedures for women sensitive to conventional cosmetics.

Does Permanent Makeup hurt?

The procedure is performed with your comfort in mind. For this reason, anesthetic gel is applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort.

What if I don't like the results?

Jennifer will discuss treatments she knows will enhance your face or body the way you want it to. The initial personal consultation is why Jennifer maintains great success.  We will work with you to insure a positive beautiful result.

Is Permanent Makeup Expensive?

Compared with many other cosmetic enhancements, for example dermal fillers and Botox which require frequent and costly maintenance, permanent makeup is a comparatively low cost option. However, in the cosmetic industry it is usually the higher end of the market which will deliver the most effective results. For this reason, quality of service should guide your decision rather than price alone when considering any cosmetic procedure.

Jennifer is a high end practitioner and has been treating clients for over 25 years.

Health & Safety Standards

Rest assured the equipment used is the latest and most technologically advanced. Like medical equipment, permanent cosmetic equipment is safe by design against cross contamination. Fully disposable ‘single use only’ applicator cartridges are used, for your complete safety and peace of mind using the Nouveau Contour device we also use.

All equipment selected and used by Jennifer Whittaker is fully inspected by the Health and Safety Department and complies with all Health and Safety requirements.

What is the next step? I am ready to get started!

Now that you have discovered this revolutionary system, the next step is to arrange a consultation.  At the consultation you will receive a fully personalized color analysis, which will take into account your individual skin undertones, hair and eye color. With the results, the pigment is then custom blended.  No two people are the same so the pigment mix must be uniquely prescribed for each individual.

We then discuss your desired look and explain how this can be achieved. All permanent makeup procedures are drawn on first so that you can see how the shape will look. We never start a treatment without your approval, Jennifer has built her reputation on trust and patience to get it ‘right’.

Initial treatments can take up to two hours to complete.  Appointments are generally arranged in two stages spaced at 4 to 6 weeks apart.
