Does it hurt?
During the permanent makeup procedure, 2 types of numbing cream are used to make you very comfortable. Although everyone’s pain tolerance is different, most people feel little to no pain at all.
How often will I need a touch-up?
It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 1-3 years to maintain your permanent makeup’s fresh, natural appearance. If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, Retinol products, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, you will probably need a color boost every year. The better you take care of the treated area, the longer it will last.
