Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions? We're here to help. Below are a list of common questions from patients and their families.
If you don't see your question here, please contact us. We'd be happy to provide you with the information you need.
What is the procedure like?
How should I prepare for my appointment?
I require all my clients to avoid any blood thinning medication for a minimum of 72 hours prior to their appointment. This includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, Motrin and Ibuprofen. Also do not drink any alcohol the night before and day of your appointment and limit the amount of caffeine you consume. These substances thin out blood, which can result in more bleeding and pain during the procedure.
You will need to avoid water for 7 -10 days after! This includes excessive sweating, pools, lakes, salt water, and extreme sun exposure so plan your vacations accordingly!
You may fill in your brows so I can get an idea of your everyday look. However, please do not wear any eye makeup, mascara or eyeliner. Lashes are encouraged, but it's optional.
If it's your initial appointment, please refrain from plucking your eyebrows, so I can see your natural eyebrow shape. However, if you're coming back for a tocuh up, you can clean any extra hair you may have prior to your appointmet.
What is the healing process like?
Immediately after getting your brows done, you may experience minor redness or swelling around the treated area, which typically goes away within 24 hours. The pigment in the skin will darken, making the brows look more bold than they were initially. This is normal! You can expect the brows to heal 30% lighter than they were immediately after your appointment.
I will give you after care instructions on the day of the appointment. It’s vital that you adhere to the aftercare instructions to achieve the best results and retention for your brows. We wouldn’t want to waste all that time and TLC we just invested into them!
How long will my eyebrows last and will I need a touch up?
If you have any more questions, please dont hesistate to contact me!
Do you offer training?
Yes! Please send me a DM through Instagram or text message at 323-393-7154 and I will send you all the info about my trainings including dates and price.
Will it ever fully disappear?
The pigment will eventually fade in about one to three years. But everyone’s skin holds the pigment differently, so it’s tough to say how long it will take for the permanent makeup to become invisible. However, traces of it will always remain, even if you can't see them
What if I have previous work done?
You MUST take a clear picture in good lighting and text it to me before booking an appointment. Even if you feel the makeup has faded, please send a photo before booking so I can approve it & see if it's something I can work with. In some instances where the previous work is too dark, dense, discolored, or large, tattoo removal will be highly recommended before any appointment will be made. I cannot guarantee results for cases such as these. Any client coming to me from a different artist is considered a new client, with full prices. Please contact me with any further questions.
Do I need to take days off work?
No, you do not. Clients may resume normal activity directly following the procedure. Redness will alleviate in 1-2 days. The permanent makeup will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from normal activities
Can I wear makeup after the procedure?
You may not wear makeup on your eyebrows, but everywhere else is fine. You may wear makeup on your eyebrows after it is fully healed.
What if I dont like it?
I'll work closely with you to ensure your satisfaction with the proposed technique. I'll always allow for you to have as much control over the procedure as possible, so there is very little room for error. If you are unhappy with your original decision, any touch ups wont be scheduled and the pigmented area will naturally fade away over time.
