Does it hurt?
A numbing cream will be applied before and during the procedure for a comfortable experience. Minimal pain.
How long will it take?
It takes approximately 2-3 hours. During this time, a consultation is done where we will discuss your shape, draw your shape and discuss a color tone. We will not start until you are completely satisfied with the shape.
How long does it last?
1-3 years depending on your skin type and lifestyle. For oily skin, the color may fade faster. Since this is a semi-permanent procedure, it will fade over time. An annual color boost (touch-up) is recommended to keep the brows looking nice, crisp and fresh.
How long does it take to heal?
Usually 7-14 days depending on your lifestyle, skin type and aftercare. All eyebrows will appear darker on initial completion, however once healed it will soften and lighten to its desired color.
