Is touch up necessary after the initial session?
Yes! A touch up session after 6-8 weeks is necessary after the initial session as everyone heals differently and outcome will varies. Certain areas may not pick up during first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!
Do you provide services to pregnant or nursing mothers?
Pregnant or nursing clients who want to receive brows and eyeliners services can be done at your own discretion. However, lip blush services will not be provided.

What if I'm allergic to certain pigments/ anesthetic?
You may request for a patch test during consultation or at the time of booking. Take note we will need an extra 15 mins for a patch test :)
How long does it takes to heal from permanent cosmetics?
It depends on which procedure you are receiving, most procedures take around 10-12 days to heal. Healing time varies on the person. Some people may heal quicker and some may heal slower.
What is the healing process like?
Once you finished the procedure, the healing process will start, as your skin is repairing itself from the procedure of pigment insertion. Your pigment may start darkening in a matter of hours, some people minutes(rarely). The pigment will darken throughout the days of healing until it starts cracking and scabbing off. You will experience cracking in Day 3-5 depending, and it will start scabbing off and becomes patchy on Day 5-7. On day 7-12 your treated areas will be 20% lighter with a little scabs or no scab at all.
*Some people heals quicker (7-10 days) and some takes longer time to heal (10-14 days)
