SMP requires 3 sessions intially and touch up's may be needed every 4-10 years depending on fading. Paramedical procedures don't need a touch up unless they begin to fade due to aging, sun exposure etc.

With eyebrows, SMP and PMU Removal we do provide numbing to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. With Paramedical depending on the area it can be essentially painless however we can offer a numbing cream if needed.

Can I get my eyebrows redo if I've had them done somewhere else?

Of course! We provide this service to a lot of clients to correct shape, size, and colour. We do ask you come in for a consultation so we can evaluate the skin and area.

How do I prevent fading? Will it change colour?

SPF 30 is recommend to all clients once area is healed to protect and prevent fading. We use only the highest quality pigments that are stable and stay true to colour.

What do I do for aftercare?

For each service you get you will recieve instructions as well as aftercare product to ensure the best results!

Do I need to take time off work?

No, unless your job consists of you being in water or causes you to sweat excessively, which will affect the healing.

How long will take to heal?

As with any procedure, healing varies from person to person. It usually takes 5 to 10 days for the skin to regrow and slough off. During this time the top layer of skin is healing with the pigment and can shed. After the shedding stops the pigment will start to fade and propoerly heal into the skin. After 30 days the process is complete for the majority of people.

What if I don't like it?

If you aren't satisfied afer your initial vist, during your touch up session we can go over any areas of concern. We can darken your brows up if you feel they are too light, or add more density to the brow. As trained cosmetics and paramedical tattoo artists we make sure your brows are symmetrical and approved before beginning. It is also important to remember the first few days your brows will be very dark, which often shocks people. Also you are having this procedure to add brows to thin or non existant brows, so it can be a bit of a shock to see yourself with brows all of a sudden. It is important to give yourself time to heal and to also get used to your new look.
