What Shall I Do Before Receiving My Permanent Cosmetic Enhancement ?

Prior to your permanent cosmetic enhancement think about the look that you wish to achieve. As experts in the field of color analysis and makeovers, we ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you, however you are part of the decision making process.

Permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results you will be required to return for at least one touch up four to eight weeks after the initial application. Results Vary.

Be prepared for the color intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to fourteen days.

FAQ

Q:  How long will they last?
A:  Depends on the individual's skin, activities etc.  Clients generally get a refresher 1-2 years.

Q:  Does it hurt? Will you numb me?
A:  We get mix reviews on pain.  Plus, everyone's pain tolerance is different. But I will numb you with a topical anesthetic before we start the microblading and during.

Q:  How long does it take to heal?  Will I be able to go to work?
A:  Healing period is at least 1 week to 14 days.  As long as you're good at following aftercare instructions, there shouldn't be an issue going to work or being out in public.  

Q:  How long is the appointment?
A:  About 2 hours with most of the time spent drawing in shapes.

Q:  Will you draw in the shapes first?
A:  Yes, I won't start on you until you agree with the color selected and shape. Once you agree to the shape, we proceed with depositing pigments into your skin.

Q:  Can I workout?
A:  No, not right after. I recommend waiting at least 5 days then working out. Excessive sweating/perspiration may affect pigments on brows. 

Q:  Can I wear makeup after?
A:  Not on the brows for at least one week.  We recommend that you avoid foundation and concealer around brows. Use wash cloth or make up wipes to wash face to avoid getting brows wet.

Q:  Is the complimentary appointment necessary?
A:  I highly recommend it.
