Muscle Relaxing Injections (Botulinum Toxin) or permanent makeup…which one comes first?

One question that I am often asked… “Should I have “Botox” or permanent makeup done first?”

There are many myths out there, but from a permanent makeup artists perspective the answer is most certainly “Permanent Makeup before Botulinum Toxin”.


Botulinum Toxin is a highly popular and well known treatment that is designed to smooth wrinkles and prevent deeper lines forming by temporarily relaxing the muscles.


The Botulinum Toxin injection temporarily prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscle and, as a result, the muscle relaxes. As the muscle relaxes, the skin smooths out and therefore alters the movement and position of the brow.

Having permanent makeup done during this stage may result in your brows being tattooed onto the skin whilst it is in an unnatural position.

Furthermore as the Botulinum Toxin starts to wear off, the muscle activity returns and the skin will return to its natural position.


So in essence, I would always recommend having your permanent makeup done when your brows are in their natural position.

In addition, if you have had Botox it is advisable to wait until the Botox has worn off and that you allow two weeks prior to your next appointment.

As you all know, Cancer has hit my family more than once, and with Cancer Awareness Month during October I wanted to give something back. I have decided to ‘Auction a Permanent Makeup Brow Treatment’ in October, with 50% of the final donation going to the Wisdom Hospice and the other 50% to a Cancer Charity of the highest donators choice.  I will be providing the treatment FREE OF CHARGE and the donation cheques will be taken by myself and the donator and handed over to the two charities*

The post will be pinned at the top of my Facebook page on Friday 14th October; The Big Pink Day.  Please place your auction amount in the comments for this post only.  On Saturday 29th October at 12 noon I will be going ‘Live’ on facebook for the final 15 minute countdown and hope you can all join me.

See you all soon

*Please Note – there may be media coverage when the cheques are handed over to both charities, either in Local Press or Social Media.

logoIt’s been sometime since you received a newsletter from me so I wanted to update you on all that has been happening at Camilla Seton Beauty & Aesthetics Salon. The last 12 years has flown by, but the last 12 months has definitely been the “year of the brow”.  We saw a massive increase in demand for both HD Brows & Permanent makeup.  So much so that I have extended the salon opening hours and increased the days to enable me to provide that much sought after “celebrity” brow to both existing and new clients. More →

Today may be the start of the weekend for you but for me, I am gearing up to attend the most prestigious event in the beauty calendar. From the inspiring setting of Olympia’s Grand Hall thousands of Beauticians, therapists and students are expected to come together this Sunday and Monday to benefit from the expertise of the beauty industry leaders.

I will be attending as part of the Nouveau Beauty Group who will be exhibiting their Permanent Cosmetics, A-Lift  Non-invasive facial toning and LVL Lashes to name but a few. As a trainer for Nouveau Contour Permanent Cosmetics Team, I will be on hand along with the team to help support, encourage and inspire the potential new faces wanting to learn the art of permanent cosmetics.

I have a passion for training new talent as I strongly believe in the work that I do. Applying permanent make up isn’t just a job for me, it is a way of life and a chance to touch the lives of the clients who put their trust in me. I see the opportunity to train someone up to get that chance to make a difference to their clients too, an honour.

I believe that you can never stop learning and that is why being a trainer with Nouveau inspires me everyday. I love to exchange techniques and knowledge with the elite team including Nouveau managing Director and celebrities choice Karen Betts who will be showcasing at Olympia alongside me this Sunday and Monday.

It is also an opportunity for anyone interested in having permanent make up themselves to see it first hand as we will be working live on the stand. A chance I hope to dispel any of the permanent make up myths that I so often come up against!

Olympia Beauty welcomes all trade professionals from the beauty industry including salon owners, buyers, make-up artists, nail technicians, spa professionals, students and peripheral industries. It is a chance to grab massive savings and exclusive show deals with some of the industry’s top brands. It is also a chance to mingle with the experts and gain knowledge from all corners of the beauty industry.
