All procedures using pigment require a patch test at least 24 hours before treatment, it only takes a few minutes and can be booked online or can be posted to you if necessary.
Any procedure starts with a full consultation where we discuss your medical history to ensure that the treatment you require is suitable for you and there are no contra-indications. We also discuss exactly what the treatment involves and what your expectations are. At this stage any photos are helpful for the look that you are trying to create so that we can see if this is possible with your skin type/colour.
Once we are both happy to proceed then the anaesthetic will be applied and left for between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the area. After this time it will be removed and the treatment will be drawn on where necessary to ensure that you are happy with what will be tattooed. When you are entirely happy then the procedure will begin.
You will be involved in the process and may be asked to sit up and look at how work is progressing through the procedure so that we can ensure that you are getting exactly what you asked for and you are happy. When it is finished and you are entirely satisfied then an after balm will be applied when necessary and after care instructions will be given.
Here's a little information about the procedures available.

Most things can be corrected without too much trouble and colours that have faded to grey, purple or reddish colours can be corrected with corrective pigments returning them to their former glory only better!

Anti Ageing Treatment
This is an exciting new natural treatment used to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars. It can be performed on the face, neck, décolletage and hands. It involves a small number of micro needles being gently moved around the face whilst applying a serum containing hyaluronic acid. This promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter. Creating only microscopic punctures in the epidermis, skin needling is minimally invasive so creates little damage meaning collagen is produced far quicker than with some other more aggressive treatments.
This takes approximately 45 minutes and costs £85 for a full face.
A small sterile blade is used to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Holding the skin taut the blade is swiped in gentle upward motions around the face, after which a peel is applied leaving your skin brighter, smoother, glowing and more youthful.
This takes approximately 45 minutes and costs £75 with an Enzyme peel or £85 with a Chemical Cherry peel.
Correct colour, shape or remove
This is a safe, non-invasive treatment giving immediate results for deep hydration, nourishment, wrinkle reduction, firming, brightness and healthy-looking skin. This involves the direct insertion of various substances into the middle layer of the skin which is responsible for nourishing and supporting the skin. It contains essential components of the skin such as hyaluronic acid and collagen and elastin products. A very fine needle is used to inject selected serums either around the entire face or concentrating on particular areas.
This takes approximately 1 hour and costs £120.
