Permanent Makeup FAQ

  • How many treatments are needed? All appointments include two treatments. Your second appointment is a perfecting visit, where I make necessary adjustments. This appointment must be done no less than 4 weeks and no more than 8 weeks apart. If you have little to no natural brow hair, you may require a third appointment. This will be discussed with you at your first appointment consultation.
  • How long am I there? 2-3 hours you are in & out! This includes paperwork, the actual procedure, perfecting your brow design, & aftercare. The touch-up takes 1-2 hours.
  • Can I wear makeup to my appointment? Please, no makeup on the day of treatment. Extra time spent removing makeup means less time for the treatment.
  • Does it hurt? I use an anaesthetic to numb the treatment area before and during the procedure, which makes each treatment comfortable for you. Each client experiences pain differently. During the procedure, I always check that my clients are comfortable and pain-free.
  • How is my colour chosen?  I have a huge range of colours to suit each individual’s skin tone. The colour is chosen together. I will recommend and show you colours close to your natural brow hair colour for the perfect blend. If you tint your brows because they are too blonde, grey, white etc, then you will need to continue to tint them after they are tattooed as the cosmetic tattoo only colours the skin behind the hairs, not the hairs themselves. I recommend waiting at least 4 weeks after the procedure before tinting them again.
  • Is there downtime? There is no downtime. It will just look like you have makeup on. Most of my clients return to work after their treatment.
  • How long do they take to settle? The first couple of days they will appear darker than your chosen colour. This is because the pigment hasn’t healed under the skin yet.  The best time to have a good look at the colour is four weeks after your first appointment. The colour will then be much softer and settled in the skin. I will go through the full healing process with you in your consultation. ​
  • Do I need to shape them before my appointment? No, I recommend you leave them if you can, as you may remove more then I need. I will do a full custom brow shape before the treatment.
  • Can I get procedures done while pregnant or nursing? Unfortunately, I can not do the procedure if you are pregnant. If you are nursing you will need to express for 24 hours after the treatment before feeding again.

  • Yes, I work over old permanent makeup. 
  • You must be 18 years or over. You may be requested to provide ID.
  • If you miss your follow up appointment for ANY reason, there will be a rescheduling fee of $50.
