FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1How long will they last
Cosmetic tattoo treatments are considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, they will fade over time and may need to be refreshed every 11 months to 15 months. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), sun exposure without SPF, excessive exfoliation to the area and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas will fade it faster. Please note that final results CAN NOT be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. You will be re-evaluated on how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and any necessary changes will be made. Touch-ups are normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring at least 2 visits. Previously tattooed areas will generally always require additional appointments
2Does it hurt? Will you numb me?
We get mix reviews on pain. You may experience discomfort the first pass, but we will numb you again once the skin is open. You won't feel much after. Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure
3Can I get them wet or work out?
No, not for at least two weeks to keep the treated area dry and reduce the risk of complications or infection and to retain the maximum amount of pigment implanted.
4Will you draw in the shapes first?
Yes, I won't start on you until you agree with the color selected and shape.
5How long is the appointment?
About 1 hour with most of the time spent going over colors and drawing in shapes.
6How long does it take to heal? Will I be able to go to work?
Healing period is four weeks. As long as you're good at following aftercare instructions, there shouldn't be a problem going to work or being out in public.
1It has been a week and my brows is itching.
Ictching is totally normal. It is essential that during the first week after the treatment you do not pick, peel or rub your enhancement.
2It is not yet a month and I already see colour unevenness ?
Please rest assured, this is expected in many cases and also the purpose of the re-touch visit that is included in the cost of the first treatment.
3Should I send in a photo of myself before booking an appointment?
We would encourage this if you have already undertaken permanent beauty treatment before, just so we can see how the old tattoo has faded.
4Will microblading work well for me?
If you have extremely oily skin, the microblading technique may NOT work well for you. The constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdered instead of a crisp hair stroke appearance. Clients with darker skin (Indian, African American, Filipino, etc.), Please know that the Hair Strokes WILL NOT appear as defined or as dark as lighter skin types due to the skin color already being naturally darker.
5Is the second appointment necessary?
For microblading, at least two appointments are needed initially, at least 4-6 weeks apart. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go bolder and add more density at your next appointment.
6Can I wear makeup after?
Not on the brows for at least two weeks but everywhere else is fine.

DON’T Rush the Healing Process Speaking of, don’t rush the healing process, which can take four to six weeks. Some post-procedure swelling and redness may occur, but this usually goes away within 48 hours. As your brows heal, you may experience some dryness or minor scabbing.
