Does it hurt?
Clients rate the pain differently due to a different levels of sensitivity. Topical anaesthetics are used to numb the treated area and during the treatment to reduce the discomfort. Client often describe their experience as a momentary discomfort. When the anaesthetic is applied on the open skin, a stinging sensation may last 5 o 10 seconds and the skin will then be completely numb.
How safe is it?
All supplies are sterilised and disposable. Only vegan friendly and high quality pigments are used to penetrate the skin.
Will the treated area be swollen?
There will be no major swollen except for a slightly red skin around your treated area as that would last up to 24 hrs.
How many sessions will I need?
To achieve the most satisfactory result, it is highly recommended that clients return for a touch up session after 4 to 7 weeks from their initial appointment. The pigment of the treated area will become at least 60% lighter compared to colour showing immediately after the first appointment. Any changes can always be discussed and perfected at a touch up session. For clients to keep their tattooed eyebrow result looking crisp and fresh, a yearly colour refreshment is highly recommended.
Is cosmetic tattoo permanent?
Different skin types may experience varying levels of cosmetic tattoo retention due things such as sunlight exposure and skin care routines, including exfoliation, as these may cause pigment to fade faster.
What is the pre-treatment regime?
To achieve the most satisfactory result, there is a pre-treatment regime to follow to ensure your skin is best prepared for the cosmetic tattooing procedure. Please refer to "Pre-Treatment Regime" under "Read Me" for further details.
What is the process of cosmetic tattooing?
We will allow 15 mins consultation session prior to commencing the cosmetic tattooing procedure. During this session, client consent form must be filled out and all questions and concerns will be answered and explained thoroughly.
We will start with eyebrow or lips mapping to ensure you are satisfied with the shape and form. We are aiming to achieve to create identical shape ; however, you need to be aware that our facial muscle and movement can prevent the shape to look completely symmetrical.
Once you are happy with the shape, the pigment will be recommended by your artist to match your skin tone and your hair colour. Client must provide a consent to the drawn shape & the pigment colour before the procedure can commence.
Your treated area will be pre-numb and the topical anesthetic will be used throughout the whole procedure to eliminate the discomfort. At the end of your appointment, you will be given an after care kit to bring home and a full after care instruction will be fully explained.
What is the healing process like?
Treated area will appear very dark for 3 to 4 days after your initial appointment. Scabbing also form whilst the skin is healing itself. You can not pick or peel your scabbing as you need to allow it to fall off on its own. Therefore, your treated area will appear quite patchy for the first week.
The healing may take between 4 to 14 days as it varies from individual to individual. The treated area can have no contact with water or heavy sweat for the first week. It is there fore important to plan ahead before booking to receive your treatment.
