How long does it last?
Results typically last 12-24 months.
How many appointments will I need?
You will have your initial procedure, a follow-up appointment 4-8 weeks later, and touch-ups as requested from that point forward.
How will my brows look in the future?
The majority of clients' tattoos stay true to color and lighten naturally over time.
However, in some cases colors may fade to different tones according to the individual’s response to the pigments.
Your eyebrow tattoo will eventually look softer and have more of a "powdered" look. This happens with all clients as the skin ages. To maintain a more crisp appearance, a refresher appointment is suggested every 1 to 2 years. Results vary with each client.
Am I a candidate?
- If you have extremely oily skin, the hair stroke eyebrow technique will NOT work AS WELL for you. The constant production of oil will cause the hair strokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdery than defined.
- If you have little to no existing hair, your tattoo will appear more two-dimensional than those clients who have more hair naturally.
- If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment may fade sooner.
- If you are iron-deficient or anemic, your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
Is it painful?
To ensure maximum comfort during the procedure we use a topical numbing cream with lidocaine prior and during your procedure. Since pain tolerance and sensitivity varies individually, each client's experience will vary. The procedure uses a smaller needle than traditional tattooing and should hurt significantly less. Clients have related the procedure with eyebrow threading, plucking multiple hairs at once or a light scratching of the skin.
Note: You may experience greater sensitivity if the procedure is performed during or near your menstrual cycle.
