What is permanent cosmetics?
Permanent cosmetics are a type of cosmetic tattooing, also known as micro-pigmentation or semi-permanent cosmetics.
The most common treatments are available for eyes, brows, lips.
The effects available can range from a natural enhancement to subtly improve the facial features to the imitation of make-up.
What is medical tattooing?
Lily believes that helping to rebuild someone’s body image is something very special.
Medical tattooing is an advanced form of permanent cosmetics that has helped many people achieve just that.
A range of treatments is available for people who have experienced a range of medical conditions such as hair loss, burns or scarring or breast reconstruction.
What different treatments are available?
Whether you are getting your brows, eyes, lips, or breasts enhanced, or if you require a medical tattoo treatment, there are various treatment options available.
Brows, eyes, lips, breasts, scars can all benefit from permanent cosmetics or medical tattooing. See our case studies for more information.
What does the treatment involve?
An initial consultation will be used to discuss your requirements and help you decide on the result that will best suit you.
Everything from your lifestyle, image, hair, skin tone, and facial features will be taken into consideration.
Lily will then custom blend colours to perfectly match your requirements –their skill as artists coming to the fore during the design stage.
The treatment itself involves gently implanting microscopic particles of pigment into the reticular layer of skin.
Will it look natural?
Yes, the healed result will look very natural indeed.
Take a look through the portfolio images and you will see that the results can be tailored to whatever look, color tone, or strength best suits you.
How long will it last?
This varies from person to person because skin type, diet, genetics, and environmental factors can all contribute to how long the pigments will be retained. For instance, sunbed use and sun exposure have a bearing on pigment retention, but this can be prevented with proper protection.
As a guide, it could be anything between one to five years before a new treatment is required, although refresher colour boosts are recommended for maintenance during this time. Once the colour starts to change you will know that you are ready for your refresher colour boost.
We offer discounted colour boost rates from 6 – 18 months after the initial treatment. It is important to remember that permanent make-up is a “low” not a “no” maintenance treatment.
What if I want to have cosmetic surgery at some point?
Whether you have had cosmetic surgery, or are considering it at some point in the future, that is not a problem.
Lily will always work to complement your natural contours and features.
Due to the healing process, you will need to leave some time between having cosmetic surgery and permanent cosmetics.
Please call us for advice specific to your procedure.
What if I have medical issues?
A full assessment of your medical background will be made prior to the treatment.
While there are some occasions when people are not suitable for permanent cosmetics –due to medical matters – this is fairly uncommon.
Are there any risks involved?
Lily adhere to the highest standards of health and safety.
Lily has many years of experience with clients from all over the world.
You can be assured that all risks are minimised and that you are in safe hands.
However, because the treatment involves implanting pigment into the skin, that means it is invasive.
While this is what provides permanent cosmetics with its long-lasting benefits, there are also some risks.
As with any form of tattooing, these can include allergic reaction, undesired result or colour, misplaced colour, infection or scarring.
Can I drink alcohol prior to my treatment?
It is advised that you do not drink alcohol the night before, or on the day of, your treatment. This can affect pigment retention.
Should I bring my brow pencil?
Yes, it can be useful to see what colour tones you have been using for your brows.

Lily is so talented. She did an amazing permanent eyeliner on me. Highly recommended!
She did a good job on my eyebrows and she’s very attentive and caring ! She would be checking up on me to see how the healing process was going I recommend lily 100 percent she’s great 💪👌🏻❤️
Lily was amazing at giving me the best brows I could ever imagine! I’ve always had a hard time drawing mine in. She did the magic shading for me, which is ombre effect eyebrows and they shape my face so well! She also added a touch of eyeliner at the end which will save me so much time when I do my lashes. She’s sweet and makes sure you are always comfortable, and the best perk is she has numbing cream so you barely feel anything!!! Thank you so much Lily!!!
