(Semi-) Permanent make-up by Kristina
Kristina studied for the art of microblading at the Phi Academy. She is also skilled in powder brows, lip color tattoo and faux freckles. All services are offered on both locations, Bussum as well as Haarlem.
The entire procedure takes about 2 hours.
The shape of the eyebrow is being measured with a special tool. With this tool the shape of the face is taken in consideration for the perfect eyebrow shape.
The chosen color by our expert is always the same as the natural color of your eyebrows.
With a more oily skin the result will fade quicker. Also facials as well as exposing to the sun will fade the result quicker.
The result will last about 1 to 2 years.
Lip color tattoo
The full procedure will take about 1 to 2 hours.
The healing period is around 4 weeks.
The skin of the lips rejuvenate quickly, the result will last 6 till 12 weeks.
Incase you’re prone to cold sores, it is more likely you will get it after the treatment.
Use a cold sore creme 2 days prior and 3/4 days after your treatment.
The full procedure will take 1 till 1,5 hours, this depends on the amount of freckles that is desired.
The result will last about 2 years. It will slowly fade out, this process will speed up due to sun and facials.
The duration of the healing process depends on how quick your skin rejuvenates. On average, the end result is visible after 1 to 2 months.

Aftercare and risks
For the next few days you are responsable for the following:
Don’t touch your brows with your hands. (Only Q-tips, napkins and cotton pads)
Day 1: 30 minutes after the treatment, the eyebrows must we washed/cleaned with baby wipes without alcohol (perfume). Then apply a thin layer of Carl&Johan with Q-tip.
This procedure should be repeated every two hours at least 5 times a day to prevent crust, the last time just before going to bed. Use BROWS PATCHES only the first night after treatment and remove them in the morning.
Days 2 and 3: Use Carl&Johan twice a day (morning and evening). Always remember to wash carefully with baby wipes first.
Day 4: Don’t use Carl&Johan anymore.
After treatment: Use only recommended cream/skin candy. Do not use other creams that are not recommended/given to you. This is to avoid reactions such as infection and allergies.
The first two weeks after the treatment, this must be avoided:
Public pools, Sun exposure, Solarium, Sauna, Skin/Beauty treatments, Intense workouts that cause sweating and contact with dust (housework and similar).
The artist is not responsible for any mistakes made by the customer in the post-treatment process.
Within minutes after your procedure the freckles will begin to oxidize and appear darker. This happens when your body forms a scab! The darkness will last for however long it takes for your body to repair itself. Some areas will begin to flake around day 3 or 4, and will take about 5-7 days for the remaining dark freckles to flake off completely (sometimes this may take longer if you’re a slow healer). DO NOT PICK AT THEM! This is extremely important. Picking at the freckles before they’re ready to flake off on their own will almost always result in pigment loss. The areas that flake will first appear shiny or “foggy”, or sometimes like the freckle is totally gone since the skin now covering the pigment is brand new, it hasn’t finished settling yet! Your tattoos will deepen back up and be completely healed about 4-6 weeks from the day of your appointment.
I recommend using Carl Johan pmu healing cream. After cleansing gently your face with a natural soap, apply a small amount of the cream all over your new freckles. Repeat 2-3 times per day for 14 days.
DO NOT apply ANY makeup or skincare products over your healing freckles. This will almost always result in either infection, or pigment loss. Skincare/makeup can effect the way that the newly implanted pigment bonds with your skin. Once you see that the freckles have all flaked (you may not notice the flaking, they might just appear lighter) you can apply makeup over them. You will want to wait at least 2 weeks before using any harsher skincare products over the area, and will want to avoid any ingredients that cause photosensitivity because they will cause the freckles to fade even faster than they normally do
DO NOT pick at your new freckle tattoos during the first stage of the healing process. This will result in color loss and could possibly even cause scarring. Allow your body to naturally exfoliate and regenerate on it’s own. The flaking will start around day 3 or 4 and will be finished 7-10 days after the day of your procedure.
DO NOT submerge your freckles under water. You may shower and bathe as normal but do not submerge your new tattoo in the bath, swimming pool, hot tub or most importantly natural bodies of water such as lakes.
AVOID excessive sweating 5-7 days after getting your freckles, as this may effect the healing process and end results.
DO NOT USE tanning beds (or have sun exposure) while you’re actively healing (7-10 days) and limit exposure even after you’re healed. UVA/UVB rays cause tattoos to fade and become discolored.
Although I do everything to ensure a smooth, easy healing process for you – it is your responsibility to follow the aftercare guidelines provided to you and follow them to the best of your ability. Once your skin has healed you must make sure to limit sun exposure- the sun (and tanning beds) will cause fading and discoloration. Any additions to your new tattoo can be done 6 weeks after the initial procedure.
THERE ARE NO IMPLIED OR WRITTEN GUARANTEES IF YOU DO NOT TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW TATTOO. AND REMEMBER – EVERYONE HEALS DIFFERENTLY. HAVE PATIENCE AND LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.
The healing process requires patience. Please ensure you’ve read this information as your healed results rely heavily on how well you can follow the aftercare advice.
Putting on permanent make-up carries risks. Therefore, make sure you are well rested and have eaten enough.
