DO I GET TO CHOOSE MY BROW SHAPE?
Your brow shape will be determined using six key measurements on the brow bone based on your face shape and structure. Though these points will be used as a guide, Tanika will not start the procedure until you approve or completely love the outlined shape.
DOES IT HURT?
Your comfort is very important; and because of this, we will apply a local anesthetic to numb the area before and during your procedure. On a scale from 1-10, most clients rated the procedure as a “3”. Also, it has been stated, “…if any pain was felt at all, it feels like eyebrow threading”.
HOW LONG IS THE BROW SERVICE APPLICATION?
Generally, an appointment is scheduled for 3 hours; however, the procedure will take up to 50 minutes of that time. The remaining time is used for pre-numbing, paperwork, consultation, evaluation and any Q&As that are unanswered. Additional time may be used to ensure you are pleased with your procedure.
WHO IS NOT AN IDEAL CLIENT?
Clients prone to keloid scarring.
Clients with pre-existing brow tattoos.
Clients with excessively oily skin, larger pores, thicker skin and eyebrow keratosis can negatively affect the absorption of the pigment and therefore are not great candidates for the semi-permanent eyebrow procedures.
HOW OFTEN WILL I HAVE TO RETURN FOR A TOUCH-UP?
4-8 weeks after your first appointment. No sooner.
HOW LONG WILL THE SEMI-PERMANENT BROWS LAST?
Skin types, age and daily activity play a major role in the longevity of your semi-permanent brows application. Most eyebrows application will last 12-15 months, while others may last longer. Please note that since the pigment is not implanted as deep as a traditional tattoo, your pigment will fade gradually until it eventually fades away. For your brows application to remain, you need to schedule a touch-up appointment every 8-12 months.
