Frequently Asked Questions


Are the treatments available at Clinique Allure suitable for everyone?

Occasionally there can be medical reasons why the treatments cannot be performed upon certain individuals. A full medical questionnaire will be completed prior to a treatment being carried out to determine suitability.

Honesty is a priority! If it is not possible to provide a client with their desired result, or that it is a treatment unsuitable for them, they will be advised accordingly. Treatments will not be carried out which are considered inappropriate or non-beneficial for the client.

Can I receive treatment if I am pregnant?

No, it is not possible to treat clients who are pregnant or breast feeding.

Can I drink alcohol prior to my treatment?

Alcohol should not be consumed 2 days prior to receiving treatment as it can affect the results.

How do I decide which style of cosmetic enhancement will suit me?

A natural looking enhancement is favoured over any ‘on-trend’ styles, as fashions do come and go. The idea for the enhancement is to be harmonious, flattering and inconspicuous, accentuating the natural features of the client.

Working closely with the practitioner, together you will choose the perfect style, design, shape and colour that will suit you as an individual.

Please feel free to bring along any favourite make-up products to the appointment as an example of the colours that are preferred and normally used.

Why are colour-boosts necessary?

Colour-boosts are necessary due to the natural fading of the implanted pigments. They are required to maintain the enhancements both in colour and shape.

How long will it take for the pigment to fade away if I no longer wish to have colour-boosts?

The implanted pigment will fade over time though may not disappear entirely, there may be small traces that remain within the skin indefinitely. To what extent the colour pigment will fade-out is variable from person to person and it is impossible to predict for certain. However, the estimated longevity is between 4 – 6 years.

What will accelerate the fading of my enhancements?
  • Sun light – Sunbathing / UV sun beds
  • The natural regeneration of skin cells
  • Chemical skin peels
  • Pigment choices
Will the treatment hurt?

Every individuals discomfort levels do vary. In order to minimise and control any discomfort the option of applying a topical anesthetic is available to assist in making the treatments as comfortable as possible for the client.

Are the Micro-Pigmentation treatments safe?

Absolutely! Clinique Allure’s basic ethos of following a strict code-of-practice ensures that the treatments not only look good but are completely safe!

The micro-pigmentation equipment used is safe by medical design against cross-contamination. Rigorous sterilisation and disinfection guidelines are strictly followed at all times. Sterile, CE class needles are used with Biotek and Cosmedic pigments, which all meet the highest safety and non-toxicity standards and product allergy patch testing is compulsory.

Will my false eyelash enhancements need to be removed before having the permanent eyeliner treatment?

Yes, this treatment cannot be carried out with false eyelash extensions in place.

Can I sunbath following treatment?

Strong sun exposure can impact the success of the results during the immediate healing phase. It is advised that exposure to the sun should be avoided for at least 4 – 6 weeks following the final treatment session.

Digital Micro-Needling

Are Digital Micro-Needling treatments safe?

Digital needling is a safe and naturally responsive treatment suitable for everyone.

What is the difference between Digital Micro-Needling and Dermal Rolling?

The dermal roller needling method is the precursor to the digital micro-needling method.

Both treatments have fundamental similarities. However, the digital micro-needling method is a technically advanced, superior method of skin needling. The action of digital micro-needling is a smooth, vertical, puncture motion, with fine needles oscillating at a very high frequency for minimum tissue damage with maximum results. The dermal roller skin needling action is a rolling, multi-angled puncture motion which has the potential to tear the skin, causing wounding and scaring. It is also much slower in action, delivering impaired, inferior results to that of the digital micro-needling method.

Tattoo Removal

What are the risks?

As with any method of tattoo removal there are some risks inherent to removing a tattoo. Scar tissue may occur on the original / un-wanted tattoo.

The risk of scaring and infection are most likely to occur following treatment, during the healing period due to inadequate aftercare. The aftercare guidelines MUST be adhered to 100% to avoid any such post procedure complications.

Tattoo removal is a process and requires commitment – it is not a ‘Quick-Fix’ solution.

Is complete tattoo removal guaranteed?

Unfortunately, the complete removal of any tattoo by any method other than surgery cannot be guaranteed. There are various factors that make each client and their unwanted tattoos very unique, such as the tattoo condition, ink/pigment type, original tattooing method, skin type and general lifestyle.

How does the E-Raze Rejuvi tattoo removal system differ from that of laser removal?

The Rejuvi removal system involves drawing the unwanted ink out of the skin. The laser removal method breaks down and disperses the ink into the body, out of visible range. It is not uncommon for both tattoo removal systems to be used in conjunction with each other, one after the other, in order to achieve the best possible result.

Is Rejuvi suitable for Black skin types?

No. Skin types which fall within the ‘Fitzpatrick Scale’ range of 5 – 6 are unsuitable for this method of tattoo removal as they are prone to scarring.
