How long does it last?
The result of such a procedure, which takes between 1 and 3 years before disappearing completely, the color will gradually fade by then. We advise to maintain your micropigmentation with the help of touch-ups to keep the result longer. Remember that semi-permanent make-up is an ART and not an exact science. Results may vary depending on the age, cell regeneration capacity, the level of pigment used and lifestyle.
How long is the appointment?
The service can last around 2 hours depending on the work to be done. The consultation is part of the appointment. After filling out the client form, the technician will take measurements of the eyebrows, choose the pigment to be used according to the natural color of the hair and skin color and begin the procedure.
How long does it take to heal?
The visible healing time is calculated between 7-10 days and 3-4 weeks before the color stabilizes to give way to the final result. The day after the procedure the color is much more intense, don’t worry, this is part of the normal process. Thereafter, the crust that has formed will begin to flake off, giving way to a much lighter pigmentation. You will then feel as if she no longer has anything. A little time must be given to the skin to allow the pigment to resurface and, if it does not appear in certain places, the planned touch-up will finalize the work.
Does it hurt?
Depending on each person’s tolerance threshold, some discomfort may be feel. An anesthetic gel is applied to numb the skin and thus allow a more pleasant work.
Will I need a touch-up?
Retouching is always necessary in order to finalize the work. This is done about 4 to 6 weeks after the first service.
