What happens on the day of the treatment?
Prior to treatment Rebecca will do a full consultation with you which includes asking finding out about your medical history and any medication you are currently taking. She will then talk through the treatment with you and answer any questions you may have. At this point you will be able to discuss the shape, style and colour for your chosen treatment and look through photos of her previous work. She will also talk through the after care you will need to follow post treatment.
Once a treatment date has been arranged, a non-refundable deposit of £35 is required to secure this appointment. If you need to rearrange, you must inform Rebecca by telephone, at least 24hours before. If you change your mind about receiving the treatment, you will lose this deposit, otherwise this amount will be taken off the total cost of the treatment and Rebecca will inform you of the remaining balance to be paid on your arranged appointment date.
On the day of the treatment Rebecca will apply a topical anaesthetic (numbing cream). You will be shown a few different shades suitable for you and once you and Rebecca are happy with the chosen pigment it will be mixed for you. Then Rebecca will draw out the shape and once you are happy, this will be used as a template and the treatment will start.
Once the treatment is completed, Rebecca will talk through the aftercare once more and give you a copy to take home along with an aftercare balm to use. It is extremely important to follow the advice in order to get the best results.
You are then required to arrange a re-touch treatment which needs to be taken four to six weeks later. This is because sometimes, the skin manages to push particles of ink out and therefore can leave some patchiness or unevenness in colour. The purpose of the re-touch treatment is to fill any gaps, reinforce the colour and make any final adjustments. This treatment is included in the initial price, any further treatments will be charged.
