Frequently Asked Questions:_______________________________________________

Are the procedures painful?

A topical anesthetic is applied prior and if needed, during each procedure to numb the epidermis and help ease any discomfort. Every patient is different, some will feel a vibration or scratching, others will feel nothing at all.

What if I change my makeup?

We work with your natural facial features to enhance them to their fullest. This natural look allows you to apply normal cosmetics over your "Permanent Cosmetics" for color variety. Therefore, without any applied makeup , you are always naturally enhanced. How Safe is it? I follow strict hygiene and sterilization procedures that conform to OSHA and CDC (Center for Disease Control) guidelines.

Is this the same as a Tattoo?

Yes, both are considered permanent. Some patients need to be "touched up" within 2-6 years. Everyone is different. Results will depend on age, skin tone, medication, skin tone, over exposure to the sun, the exfoliation process, and the degree of care taken to maintain the procedure.

What is the Recovery Period?

These are all very non-invasive procedures. Some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising and is usually not noticeable. Most can return to normal daily activities right away. Complete healing takes a up to eight weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches it final color.
