We’ve answered some of our most frequently asked questions below to help you understand our treatments and make the right treatment choice for you.
Do you suffer from cold sores?
Are you pregnant or breastfeeding?
Do you have dark skin and want the Diamond lip blush treatment?
Do you have pre-existing Permanent Makeup that has been done elsewhere?
If you have answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above questions, you will need to speak to a member of our team prior to booking your appointment as you may not be suitable for some of our treatments.
Please note: For PMU some skins will not retain the crispness of a hair stroke and some skins may require more retouches than others. We will not carry out work that we feel is inappropriate or work with clients whose expectations we feel we cannot manage.
AM I SUITABLE FOR PERMANENT MAKE-UP?
Most people are suitable for some form of Permanent Makeup or Aesthetics treatment.
At the clinic, either Victoria herself or one of her Team will explore with you which treatments will suit you best. This is a one-to-one consultation and includes a discussion of your desired results and expectations and any features you wish to correct or balance. From this discussion, your technician will recommend the specific treatments she believes will achieve the effect you want and explain the process.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Permanent Makeup can last for several years but this is dependent on several factors including skin type, sun exposure and lifestyle.
Whilst Permanent Makeup is ‘low maintenance’ it is not ‘no maintenance’. Victoria Beauty Nairobi recommends a colour refresher treatment every twelve to eighteen months to maintain perfect results.
IS PERMANENT MAKE-UP SAFE?
When performed correctly by expert, trusted technicians Permanent Makeup and Aesthetics treatments are extremely safe. At Victoria Beauty Nairobi we are a global center of excellence for Permanent Makeup so you are in safe hands!
For Permanent Makeup, all of our pigments are made of natural minerals that are specifically selected for their safe, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic properties. Permanent Makeup treatments are trusted by technicians and cosmetic surgeons throughout the world. Permanent Makeup also serves medical purposes for people recovering from breast cancer, alopecia and chemotherapy.
DO PERMANENT MAKE-UP HURT?
Anaesthetic gel is applied prior to treatment and our technicians perform the procedure with your comfort in mind to minimise any pain or discomfort.
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE THE RESULTS?
Victoria and her team will take great care prior to starting your treatment to explain the process and select the treatments that they know from their extensive experience will enhance your face or body and achieve your desired results.
Your treatment plan will be agreed with you before we begin and any Permanent Makeup will be carefully drawn on in pencil before we begin tattooing for you to review, change and finally approve.
This level of care is not universal in the industry. Howevever, numerous clients have come to the Victoria Beauty clinic for correction or improvement of treatments done elsewhere.
ARE YOUR TREATMENTS EXPENSIVE?
With a huge increase in the popularity of Permanent Makeup in recent years and with the industry being largely unregulated, you will find Permanent Makeup treatments for a huge range of different prices. However, in the cosmetic industry, it is usually the higher end of the market which will deliver the most effective results.
The quality of treatment not only will impact the appearance of the final result, but also affect factors such as the safety of the procedure and the length of time that your results will last. For these reasons, quality of service and experience should guide your decision rather than price alone when considering any cosmetic procedure.
Victoria is a high-end practitioner and her clients fly in from all over East-Africa. She takes care of some well-known faces and clients from all walks of life who want the best in Permanent Makeup. Victoria wanted to keep a competitive edge for pricing and is proud to be able to offer a world-class service with a scale of prices to suit most budgets.
From our experience and the increasing amount of clients that we see with disappointing results from less reputable technicians, we believe that if your budget cannot stretch to a trusted bespoke service endorsed by clients with proven results, then it is probably better to wait. Permanent Makeup are long term options so you are likely to regret rushing into a treatment with somewhat cheaper.
