Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is permanent makeup?
A: Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation, is a procedure where pigments are implanted into the dermal layer of the skin to enhance certain features such as eyebrows, lips, and eyeliner. It is designed to provide long-lasting results, saving you time and effort on daily makeup application.

Q: What is microblading?
A: Microblading is a technique used to create natural-looking eyebrows. It involves manually depositing pigment into the skin using a handheld tool with fine needles. This technique creates hair-like strokes that mimic the appearance of real eyebrows, giving a fuller and more defined look.

Q: How long does permanent makeup last?
A: The longevity of permanent makeup varies depending on several factors such as the individual's skin type, lifestyle, and exposure to sunlight. On average, it can last between one to five years before a touch-up is needed. Over time, the pigments can fade, and you may want to refresh the color to maintain the desired look.

Q: Is permanent makeup safe?
A: When performed by a trained and experienced professional, permanent makeup is safe. I adhere to strict hygiene and sterilization procedures. Allergic reactions or complications are rare but possible. It is essential to discuss any existing allergies or medical conditions with me before undergoing the procedure.

Q: How long does the permanent makeup procedure take?
A: The duration of the procedure varies depending on the area being treated and the desired outcome. Generally, it can take between one to three hours. This includes the initial consultation, design planning, numbing, and the actual application of the pigment. The time can be longer or shorter depending on individual circumstances.

Q: Is the permanent makeup procedure painful?
A: Pain tolerance varies from person to person, but most individuals report mild discomfort during the procedure. Prior to the application, a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area and minimize any potential discomfort. The sensation is often described as similar to slight scratching or mild stinging.

Q: What is the difference between permanent makeup and microblading?
A: Permanent makeup and microblading are both techniques used for enhancing eyebrows, but they differ in several ways.

Q: Which technique is more suitable for me?
A: The choice between permanent makeup and microblading depends on personal preference, desired results, and individual factors such as skin type and lifestyle. Permanent makeup is ideal for those seeking longer-lasting results with a more saturated look. On the other hand, microblading is a great option for those looking for a more natural appearance with the flexibility of adjusting the brow shape and thickness over time.

Q: Are there any pre- or post-care instructions for permanent makeup?
A: Yes, both pre- and post-care instructions are essential for optimal results and proper healing. I will provide specific guidelines tailored to your needs. Pre-care instructions may include avoiding blood-thinning medications, alcohol, and caffeine before the procedure. Post-care instructions typically involve keeping the treated area clean, avoiding excessive sunlight, and refraining from swimming or using saunas until the area has fully healed.

Q: Can I choose the color and shape of my permanent makeup?
A: Absolutely! I will work with you to design the desired color and shape that best suits your features and personal preferences. She'll consider your skin tone, hair color, and facial structure to create a look that enhances your natural beauty.

Q: What if I change my mind about my permanent makeup in the future?
A: Although permanent makeup is designed to last, it can be adjusted or modified. If you decide to change the color, shape, or style of your permanent makeup, you can consult with me to explore options such as color correction or a complete removal procedure.

Remember, it's important to have a thorough consultation.

What's the process like?

Step 1: Consultation and Design
During the initial consultation, we will discuss your desired eyebrow shape, thickness, and overall aesthetic goals. I will carefully examine your facial features, skin tone, and existing eyebrow structure to create a customized plan for your microblading procedure. Together, we will determine the most flattering brow shape and color that suits your unique features. This is also the time to address any questions or concerns you may have about the process.

Step 2: Numbing the Area
To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, I will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. This helps minimize any potential discomfort or sensitivity during the microblading process. We will allow the numbing cream to take effect for approximately 20-30 minutes, ensuring you are relaxed and ready for the next step.

Step 3: Mapping and Shaping
Using a specialized eyebrow pencil or microblading pen, I will carefully map out the desired shape and symmetry of your eyebrows. Taking into account your natural brow structure and facial proportions, I will create precise guidelines to ensure the final result is balanced and harmonious. This step is crucial in achieving symmetrical and flattering brows that complement your unique facial features.

Step 4: Microblading Technique
Once the mapping and shaping are complete, I will begin the microblading process. Using a sterile, handheld microblade tool with ultra-fine needles, I will delicately create hair-like strokes in the areas of sparse or thin eyebrows. These strokes will mimic the appearance of natural hair, resulting in a realistic and natural-looking outcome. I will continuously assess the pressure and angle of the strokes to ensure a consistent and even distribution of pigment. Throughout this process, I will regularly apply a specialized pigment, carefully chosen to match your natural hair color, ensuring a seamless integration with your existing eyebrows.

Step 5: Pigment Absorption and Touch-Ups
Once the microblading is complete, I will allow the pigment to be absorbed by the skin. This usually takes a few minutes, during which I will remove any excess pigment and clean the area. It's important to note that the initial results may appear darker and more intense than the desired outcome. Over the next few weeks, the color will soften and lighten as the pigment settles into the skin.

Step 6: Aftercare and Follow-up
I will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and long-lasting results. This may include avoiding excessive moisture, exposure to sunlight, and refraining from picking or scratching the treated area. Additionally, we will schedule a follow-up appointment, typically 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure, to assess the healed results and perform any necessary touch-ups or adjustments. This follow-up appointment allows me to fine-tune the shape and color, ensuring your eyebrows look flawless and last for an extended period.

By following these steps, I aim to deliver exceptional results that enhance and compliment your natural beauty and provide you with brows that you can wake up and admire every day.
