Cosmetic Tattooing (Skin Art) goes back to biblical times, discovered on the skin of Egyptian mummies dating back to 2000 B.C. Primitive implements of the trade, at that time, were soot or gunpowder implanted with a bamboo stick or sharpened stone. Dermalpigmentation, commonly known as tattooing, has been present for centuries in our cultures for the purpose of body adornment. Cleopatra’s eyes were permanently tattooed. Did you really think she was a born beauty?

"PERMANENT MAKE-UP" is not make-up as we know make-up to be, (from your local drug store, or other cosmetic companies), "Permanent Make-Up" is a term used to describe facial cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation. Color pigments are placed just below the dermis of the skin for the purpose of creating lines of definition to enhance facial beauty, indefinitely. This service is custom designed for each individual client according to their face shape, skin-tone, eye color and hair color. This technique has been used by plastic surgeons and dermatologist as well as trained Permanent Make-Up Technicians.

Permanent cosmetics personally benefit people with poor vision, arthritis, problems with dexterity, allergies to make-up, watery eyes, problems with contact lenses or oily skin that causes make-up to smear. Convenience is also a great consideration for busy people example: athletic people who want to look good during sports or exercise. Some people simply do not like to be seen without make-up at any time. One of the most beneficial uses of permanent eye make-up is to recreate the illusion of lost lashes and brows due to hair loss induced by chemotherapy, alopecia areata, heredity balding or over tweezing. A sudden loss of hair can be very devastating, although wigs are readily available. What about losing your eyebrows and eyelashes?

More and more people are becoming aware of the advantages of permanent cosmetics and how it can enhance and accent their own natural beauty! It will not wash off or smear and will always look professionally applied. The art of cosmetic tattooing has helped many people achieve their desired beauty. It is no longer just available to the rich and famous, but to anyone who really cares to look their very best! You can correct unshapely eyebrows, define a pair of beautiful eyes, sculpture a pair of voluminous lips and don’t forget a beauty mark to really show off your face!

Have you tweezed your eyebrows to death, and they never grew back in? Have your eyebrows drooped due to the aging process, or maybe you have a scar in your eyebrow that always has to be penciled in? "Cosmetic tattooing can literally give you a mini eye-lift. You will be amazed at the more youthful look you will have. Your Permanent Make-Up technician will help you choose the desired shape and color that will best enhance your, face shape. The color of your eyebrows are usually one shade lighter than your hair color.


Choose a color that compliments your eyes. Dramatize them: be as beautiful as possible. People always look at your eyes when they are speaking with you. Large eyes with thick lashes are more apt to catch your attention. Permanent eyelining along the eyelashes give the elusion of thicker lashes and more beautiful definition of the eyes. Shape, color and thickness of lines are determined by your Permanent Make-Up Technician and you.


Do you have problems with lipstick bleeding or your lips are not quite as thick as you would like them? Permanent Make-Up is the answer for you! The permanent implanted color actually builds a ridge to stop lipstick from bleeding. A thick line above your natural lip line will build up thin lips. Drawing a line inside your lip line will diminish excessively large lips to make them appear smaller. You can choose colors ranging from bright red to a soft pink to just a dark skin tone. These issues are discussed in your consultation appointment.


Beauty marks are permanently created to accent a beautiful area of the face. Usually placed at the highest point of the cheek-bone, near the eye to attract others to your eyes, or near the mouth to bring their attention to your beautiful lips. Depending on your skin tone, the beauty marks can range from light brown, medium to dark brown, to black. For example: Stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Cindy Crawford and Madonna.

Don’t let an unwanted or unsightly tattoo stop you from wearing the clothes you want or stand in the way of your career!


Are you fed up of wearing long sleeve shirts in the summer, or covering up when everyone else is stripping off?

Or perhaps your tattoo serves as an all too permanent reminder to an uncomfortable or unwanted memory?

Until recently getting an unwanted tattoo removed has been a daunting task, but now there is a revolutionary method of ink extraction developed in the USA to remove that tattoo quickly, easily and permanently.

The e-raze system works much like having the original tattoo, but instead of ink uses a specially formulated cream that bonds with the original tattoo ink and draws it to the skin surface. The cream doesn’t remain in the skin, or replace the tattoo and the treatment is so effective that a tattoo can usually be completely removed in just three or four sessions, compared to the dozens of treatments required by laser removal methods.

How much does it cost?
The treatment cost would is £50 per square inch of tattoo and 3 to 4 treatments are usually needed.

Does it hurt?
The treatment is very similar to being tattooed. Painaway a powerful anesthetic agent is used to numb the skin prior to treatment.

How long does a treatment take?
A treatment takes around 45 to 60 minutes to cover a 2x2 inch square area.

What's in the removal cream?
The removal cream has been specifically developed for the purpose of removing tattoos by bonding with the tattoo ink and causing its expulsion from the body. Many of the ingredients can be found in food and cosmetic products.The ingredients in order of quantity are as follows Water, zinc oxide, magnesium oxide, calcium oxide, n-propanol, TEA benzoic acid. Only a very small amount of cream is required per treatment typically less than 3-4ml most of which does not penetrate the skin, exposure is minimal and chemical concentrations in the cream present little or no risk. The treatment has been approved by various health and safety officers around the UK.

If you tattoo the removal cream in does this mean it gets left in the body rather than the tattoo?
No, the removal cream is designed to bond to and absorb the tattoo ink and extract the ink to the skin surface. It does not replace the tattoo and it does not remain in the skin. It is not a skin colored cover up tattoo.

How will I know if this treatment is suitable for me?
The treatment is suitable for most people, however a through consultation is carried out prior to any treatment. Generally if you have tolerated the original tattoo process then this treatment is very similar.

How many treatments will it take to remove my tattoo?
On average most tattoos can be removed in three to four treatments depending on size and location. Very old tattoos may take extra treatment. We do not normally recommend treating a complete arm or leg band tattoo in one sitting but usually treat it in sections. We normally recommend that a maximum single area of two square inches is treated to minimise discomfort after treatment, If you require a larger area to be treated then please discuss this with your technician.

How frequently can I have the treatment?
It will generally take about two weeks from the initial treatment for most of the crusting to fall away, normally after around six to eight weeks the area is completely healed and can be re-treated.

How soon will I see the results?
The most amazing thing about this treatment is that you will actually get to see the results in just a few days. After the treatment a sterile dressing is applied which must be kept on and kept dry for 48 hours. After removing the dressing a good crust will form over the treated skin, as the crust falls away it will take the unwanted tattoo ink with it. It is likely that parts of the tattoo will be almost completely erased on just the first treatment.Your tattoo can be completely removed in just a matter of months, compared to years that it takes with laser.

Can I have this treatment if I've had laser treatment?
It is possible to treat tattoos that have previously undergone laser treatment, however the results can be less successful due to sub-dermal scar tissue left behind by the laser process, please call us to discuss. It is perfectly safe to have laser treatment on your tattoo after it has been treated with the e-raze system if necessary.

I have a home made tattoo, will this system work on that?
Yes, usually the ink in home made tattoos is less resilient than that used in professionally applied tattoos and can be removed very easily, however unlike professional tattoos ink depth can be very random which may make additional treatments necessary.

I have permanent make up, can this system remove that?
Yes this treatment will completely remove permanent make up, the only place its not suitable for is sensitive areas near the eyes, or where there is a risk of moisture contamination.

Can all pigments be removed?
Yes the process acts upon all pigments equally, unlike laser which is ineffective against certain pigments. The success rate of tattoo color removal is 100% for permanent makeup and over 92% for body tattoos, much higher than the success rate of laser treatment.*

Will it leave a permanent scar?
The removal process is well tolerated by the skin the scarring rate in a published series of 98 patients (Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001) was 0% for permanent makeup and 6% for body tattoos (micro-scarring) compared to laser with a 5% chance that a permanent scar will form**. Usually if you did not suffer any complications when the tattoo was originally applied, do not suffer from keloids and the treated area is cared for properly then the risk of scarring should be minimal. If the original tattoo has been applied too deeply, (tattoo has become blurred) then attempted removal can be more liable to scarring. Please discuss this with your technician. It is recommended that a small trial area is tested first. It is also important to follow the after care instructions provided.

Are there any lasting side effects?
There have been no lasting side effects documented arising out of the removal treatment. The area may be sore for around a week after treatment and following the final treatment the area may appear slightly redder however this should fade to the normal skin colour after a few months. None of the cases in the Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001 study of 98 patients demonstrated destruction of the skin's natural pigment unlike laser where hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation can be more common.

Do you guarantee complete tattoo removal?
Every individual tattoo is unique some will respond better than others to particular treatments. Therefore no guarantee can be made on the likely sucess of the treatment. The published success rate of tattoo color removal is 100% for permanent makeup and over 92% for body tattoos, better than any other currently available tattoo removal technique.

Who developed the removal cream?
The tattoo removal cream is developed by Rejuvi Laboratory San Francisco which was founded in 1988 by Dr. Wade Cheng, a distinguished and renowned biochemist in the San Francisco Bay Area. Dr. Cheng has an extensive multi-disciplinary background in biochemistry, pharmacology, chemical engineering and Oriental herbalogy. Working closely with his former professor, Dr. Arthur Furst, a leading research scientist, the team created the Rejuvi product line, Rejuvi Plus Botanical line and Rejuville Anti-aging hair care line. In collaboration with the leading Scandinavian skincare expert - Marie Evertson, the unique Rejuvi professional treatment line and the extensive home care line were developed and are successfully used in salons and spas throughout the world.
