FAQ: Cosmetic Tattoo & Semi-Permanent Makeup

Powder Brow
Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my semi-permanent makeup last?

Results usually last for about 1.5 – 3years, depending on the type of skin, lifestyle of the individual. We recommend a touch up after 12 months to keep them fresh!

Will the powder brow procedure hurt?

Our aim is your comfort. Before the procedure begins, your brows are treated with a numbing ointment to reduce any discomfort. The usual pain disappears within 5 minutes. (Some describe it more as a scratching sensation.)

How long will I need to heal? Will I be able to work?

Healing period is one week. As long as aftercare instructions are thoroughly followed, there shouldn’t be an issue going to work or being out in public.

How long is my appointment? What can I expect during my service?

The average time for a procedure can take up to 2-2.5 hours. Before application, the client will undergo a consultation which includes going over colors, desired shape, arch, and thickness of the brows which have to first be outlined and drawn in before the actual procedure can begin. Once the design has been drawn on, you must approve. It’s a delicate process that requires precision and attention to detail.

Tip: You’re more than welcome to bring in a picture of the desired shape and we can use that to perfect the design to complement your unique face shape and size. It is mostly recommended to bring in a selfie, rather than a picture of a celebrity.

Can I work out after my procedure?

Walking, light exercise okay, but no sweating for at least one week.

Can I wear makeup after?

Not on the brows for at least one week. We recommend that you avoid foundation and concealer around brows and forehead as well, this is because the pigments are still settling into the skin.

Can I wash my face and shower after my procedure?

Avoid getting the area wet, You can wash your face with water only under part of your eyes ; for the forehead, you can use wipes.

Is a touch-up appointment necessary?

Yes, it is highly recommended. The touch up is recommended 4-12 weeks after initial treatment. During your touch up, the artist will fill in any areas that need a little extra oomph!

We can fill in any asymmetrical parts, but these parts cannot be adjusted completely to make the lip symmetrical. We do not expand the design more than 1-1.3mm because color fading can occur.

If the scar is within the lip, it may cover the scar partially.

Is overlip possible?

We don’t provide overlip tattoo service. To extend the size of the lips, the filler is recommended. If overlip is done by tattoo, it can be a problem because it looks unnatural during the color fading period.
