Frequently asked questions

I understand the decision to get permanent makeup can be nerve-wracking which is why I make every effort to make my clients feel at ease during their appointment. If you still have questions, feel free to ask by sending a message via the Contact Form below and if you'd like, we can set up a virtual consultation.  - Kim

Does it hurt?

Topical numbing cream is used before and during the procedure to keep you as comfortable as possible. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. 

Will I need touch ups? 

Yes. Each new procedure requires 2 or more visits. The initial procedure is followed by a touch-up appointment within 6-8 weeks. It's normal for a cosmetic tattoo to fade after healing the first time it's done, which is why it requires additional layers at touch-up. After that, an annual touch-up is suggested. 

How long does it last? 

This depends on your age, skin type, how fast your cell turnover is, and lifestyle. Everyone metabolizes pigment at a different rate. An annual touch-up is suggested in order to keep the color looking fresh. 

How long does it take? 

An appointment is approximately 2 hours, sometimes less. I take my time during the brow mapping process to make sure your brows are symmetrical and get your input as I consider it a collaborative effort. We do not want to rush the process so please make sure to set aside ample time for your appointment. 

How will I look after my appointment?

Your skin may be a little red immediately after the appointment and your new brows may look darker than expected for the first few days but they will gradually soften in color during the healing process.
