HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?
Using cutting edge tools and techniques, high quality pigment is implanted in the area of the lashes top and bottom which enhances your eye shape and color.
The design is completed in 2 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart and your comfort is ensured with topical numbing agents deemed safe for the delicate eye area. The eyeliner tattoo takes a few days to fully heal and for the pigment to settle, but most people return to work the following day. Your 6-8 week touchup session will ensure long lasting pigment retention.
Before your procedure an in depth consultation will be done. Your expectations and desires will be discussed and an outline is drawn for your approval. Eye safe topical anesthetic will be applied for your comfort. As well, your eyes will be closed during the procedure, so no worries about damage to your eyes.
The entire procedure including consultation, photos, numbing, tattoo and aftercare review will take approximately 2-2.5 hours.
