No, a separate appointment for consultation is usually not necessary. I always send out a list of preliminary questions to my prospective clients and if you answer those questions with the desired answers a consultation is not necessary. I will however always require a consultation if you have previous permanent make up done on the area you are inquiring about.
You definitely can go out immediately after your permanent make up procedure. I usually tell my clients that they get as a red or swollen as they do when they get waxing for eyebrows, eyeliner can get a bit swollen because that tissue is very delicate and the lips can get a bit swollen as well. Most swelling goes down within 24 hours of the procedure.
I prefer to have your brows in their natural state so I can see the exact color and hair growth pattern before your permanent make up procedure.
Yes, there are several things that need to be done before and after your permanent make up procedures. All of these will be detailed out in the paperwork that will be emailed to you when you make your appointment.
There are several factors that determine if you are a good candidate for permanent make up. When you inquire about the service you will get a detailed list of questions to answer to determine which procedure is right for you.
The length of time depends on the service chosen. Appointments run between 1 1/2 hours to 2 1/2 hours.
I use a pre-numbing cream before the procedure and a numbing gel once the skin is opened. I try my best to work back-and-forth so that no one spot gets too much work done at a time. I do my absolute best to keep you as comfortable as possible. Most clients report little to no pain.
