Cosmetic tattooing is a safe and effective treatment offering amazing results however like any treatment there are always things to be mindful of.
If you feel any of the below contraindications may apply to you please contact us and we can discuss this with you further.
DOES COSMETIC TATTOOING HURT?
Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Some clients experience little to no pain while others find it a little more uncomfortable. In order to minimise any discomfort we use two topical Anesthetics (similar to what is used before botox/fillers).HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Generally Cosmetic Brow Tattooing lasts 12-18 months however everyone holds pigment differently. Some medications, skin care, skin types etc can cause your brows to fade quicker then others so we can not guarantee how long your brows will last before requiring a touch up.
We recommend only light, minimal makeup be worn the first 7 days after treatment while keeping foundation away from your brow area. NO BROW POWDERS/PENCILS FOR AT LEAST 2 WEEKS.DO I HAVE TO LOOK AFTER MY EYEBROWS AT HOME?
Yes the first 7 days are just as important as the treatment. We give you an Aftercare Kit and explain what you need to do for the first few days.IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN MAKE ME NOT SUITABLE FOR TREATMENT?
