What Should I Expect At My Appointment?
The first appointment typically takes 3 hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and pigment is applied. Four to six weeks later, the client may return for the second session for touch up which can take approximately 1.5 hours.
Brow Consultation & Drawing
Duration: 45 minutes to 1 hour
We understand that a permanent makeup procedure can be daunting! Our number one priority is ensuring all our clients feel comfortable with their decision, and that’s why every appointment begins with a consultation.
During your consultation, your specialist will work with you to discuss your goals, lifestyle, shape of your existing brows and the problem areas you wish to address. Bringing reference photos and inspiration images is highly recommended and greatly appreciated.
Your specialist will advise and show examples of various looks and colors which will work with each client’s face shape and existing features.
Step 1: Consultation
Step 2: “Before” photos are taken
Step 3: Mapping
Step 4: We get your feedback on mapping
Step 5: Final approval on the new design!
Permanent Makeup Procedure Begins
Duration: 1-1.5 hours
Step 7: For brows, we begin with first outlining and scratching the surface of your brows with our permanent makeup machine, then apply the topical numbing anesthetic gel. The numbing gel takes 10 minutes to settle in.
Step 8: We complete one pass on each side of the brow two-thirds of the way in from the tail towards the head of the brow.
This is checkpoint #1. At which point, we will sit you up and show you the initial progress of the brows. This is an important step in the process because our clients always feel much more comfortable and confident once they’ve seen the brow shape and color starting to take form, and they are often relieved to see that it wasn’t as scary as they pictured in their heads! :) This is also an important checkpoint to ensure that the brows are still in perfect measurement.
We will complete the rest of the brows, and sit you up as needed to ensure the best results.
Step 9: Once your brows are complete, you will get one final look and review of your brows. Any final updates will be made at this time. When your brows are perfect, “after” photos will be taken of your new brows, payment will be processed, your touch-up appointment will be scheduled and you will be on our merry way.
Caution! Be prepared for loads of compliments :)
Touch-Up Perfecting Session
The Touch-up session is performed after 6-10 weeks from your initial appointment. At this appointment, your specialist will assess how your skin has healed and will perfect your brows accordingly.
Permanent makeup enhancements will gradually and naturally fade over time, to varying degrees. A touch up or "Refresher Session" is can be done to keep your brows looking their best, but we do advise clients to stretch out appointments as long as possible to maintain skin integrity.
