How long does it last?
The time that permanent makeup lasts, can vary from person to person, some may last anywhere from 1-3 years, but everyone's results can last different amounts of time. A color refresh is recommended every 9-12 months to keep the colors vibrant and fresh, however some clients may want this sooner or later.
Does the procedure hurt?
This also varies per person and depends on a couple factors, such as pain tolerance and location on the brow. However, I use topical anesthetics to help my clients feel comfortable and make sure that they are as pain free as possible. A topical anesthetic is applied before the procedure and during (in between passes) , to ensure we keep each client as comfortable as we can.
