Does it hurt to have permanent cosmetics applied?
We use the strongest topical numbing agents available to assure you of a pain free experience. Your comfort is our primary concern.
What should I expect after the procedure?
There will be slight swelling immediately after the procedure which should subside within 24 to 48 hours. You may also see the color as slightly darker than predicted but this is normal. The actual color will develop within a week for most procedures. We provide you with clear, written after care instructions along with protective ointment to be used for several days following your application.
How long will my permanent cosmetics last?
The extended wear of permanent cosmetics varies based on factors like your facial cleansing routine including exfoliating and peels, exposure to sun or other ultra violet rays, medications, and your metabolism. Over time permanent cosmetics will begin to fade though a trace of them will always exist. Overall, most women can enjoy permanent cosmetics for 2 to 5 years before a color boost is needed to revive the color.
