FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Does it hurt?
On a scale of 1-10, most clients say the discomfort level is about a 3. Numbing cream is applied for added comfort during the treatment. Please note that you may be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
Q: What can’t I do after the procedure?
It is very important not to apply make up, powder or any other cream over the eyebrows except the ones your artist recommends. It is extremely important to avoid dust, touching the eyebrows with dirty fingers, swimming, tanning, and working out with excessive amounts of sweating in the first 7-10 days. It is also very important to avoid all abrasive treatments in the area of the eyebrows. Permanent make up can be protected by applying creams containing SPF, BUT not before the healing process has finished. Please read our After Care section.
Q: How long does it take to heal?
The healing process usually takes 7-10 days, but does vary from person to person. Your skin is considered healed after the skin scabs and naturally sloughs off. At this point the pigment takes time to settle into the skin. DO NOT pick off these scabs; picking scabs may result in a loss of color or minor scarring.
Q: Why do my eyebrows look so dark during the healing process?
This is a result of the natural oxidation process that takes place in the skin once pigment has been implanted. The color reacts slowly with oxygen in the air, turning it darker. This is a completely natural and normal occurrence for our pigments. Don’t worry this is completely normal and the color will fade.
Q: Do I need to take the day off work?
No. There’s no downtime associated with the treatment. There may be slight redness that will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
