How long does the hair strokes lasts?
It depends on your skin type and on after care. On oily skin it lasts for about 1 year, while on normal skin it even might last to 3 years.
Does it hurt?
On a scale of 1-10, most clients report a discomfort of about 3. At the beginning of your treatment you will feel a scratching feeling while I am doing my first pass and marking the shape and design of the brow.
A numbing gel is then applied, which is absorbed into the skin within a few seconds. Once the cream is absorbed very little feeling remains.
How long does it takes to heal?
Healing period of skin surface layer is about one week. If you will follow all aftercare instructions, there shouldn’t be a problem going to work or being out in public. The deeper layers of the skin heals for about 4-6 weeks. Only after that the touch up is done.
How long is the appointment?
About 1.5-2 hours. Most of the time will be spent drawing in shapes. We don’t want to rush it here!
Can I get them wet or work out?
For at least one week you can’t get them wet or sweat too much. This is important to keep the treated area dry and reduce the risk of complications or infection and to retain the maximum amount of pigment in the skin.
Can I wear make up?
Not on the brows for at least one week, but everywhere else it is fine.
Is the touch up necessary?
It is, since some of the hair strokes fades too much after one month.
