Freckles & Beauty Spots, Norwich
Natural looking semi-permanent freckles and beauty spots that will last between 1-3 years.
You will be able to choose how many freckles you want to have and where you would like them placed - there really is no right or wrong.
Pricing will vary depending on the level you want.
Please note, that it is VERY important you choose an artist who is skilled and experienced at freckles because if the wrong technique is used, or the incorrect pigment or needles, you can end up with very dark looking spots that will look like permanent blackheads and heal very ashy in the skin.
This is an important part of the treatment and whether you come along for a separate consult, or have a brief one at the start of the session, I will always talk things through with you.
During the consult, you can pencil in where you would like your freckles and we can both have a look to make sure the placement is good before any work goes ahead.
Depending on the level of freckles you want, this could take about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
I would not normally use any pre-numbing cream as it can displace the small freckles we will have just drawn in, but once I have broken the skin, I will use a secondary numbing gel that will render the procedure totally painless.
Aftercare is probably the second most important part of the treatment after the pre-draw as this is what will determine your final results. It is of the utmost importance that you follow my in-depth instructions (taken away with you in the form of a card) as I have worked hard to find the best aftercare for my clients and one that will yield almost perfectly healed results.
You will be given a little aftercare goodie bag to take home with you.
PLEASE NOTE: that due to the nature of freckles, you will NOT be able to wear make up for up to 14 days - or whenever the scabbing process is complete.
Wearing makeup before this will greatly affect your results.

Semi permanent freckles Norwich
Semi permanent freckles and beauty spots in Norwich.
A patch test is required to be performed at least 24 hours before each appointment. Without one, I'm unable to go ahead with the treatment.
You are welcome to pop in and have me perform the test on you, which literally takes seconds, or I can post one out to you with full instructions.
It is a very simple test and can either be done by yourself, or with someone to help you.
It is incredibly rare to have any reaction at all to the pigments as they are mostly organic in compound, but it is still possible - hence the need for a test.
You will be patch tested for all the products that will be used on and in your skin; the pigments and the lidocaine (numbing gel/cream).
Consultations are great to have and are recommended - especially for those clients who are still a little unsure and would like some assurance about the procedure, to see more pictures and have me put your mind at ease.
During the consultation (which takes around 20 minutes), I will perform a patch test, draw on a very rough eyebrow shape just to give you an idea, choose the pigment that matches the closest with your current brow hair and answer any questions you may have.
*PLEASE NOTE: consultations are charged at £50 (non-refundable). This is redeemable against the cost of the treatment should you go ahead and book.
CLIENTS WITH PREVIOUS PERMANENT MAKEUP:
If you have previous semi-permanent makeup on your brows, eyes or lips, then you will need to email me a photograph showing what you currently have, as clear as possible, so I can determine whether I will be able to cover up, or work over it.
Not all previous work can be covered up or worked over for a few reasons:
If there is still a lot of pigment in the skin as the skin just won't be able to take any more pigment - just like filling a bucket full of water.
If the previous work is poorly shaped, then designing a new shape over the top has to be considered carefully.
If the previous work has changed colour to a blue/greenish tint or red/orange tint. Again, depending on the level of the saturation, will depend if more pigment can be added to the skin, or colour corrected, without the previous work showing through once healed.
