How long will it take?
Leave 2 hours free for the ‘initial treatment’ and 1.5 for the ‘touch-up treatment.’
Does it hurt?
I use excellent anaesthetics to keep any discomfort under control. I use a topical numbing cream prior to procedure and a local anaesthetic gel is carefully applied once the procedure has started. This is topped up regularly to keep you comfortable, most clients say they feel very relaxed.
What about my eyes blinking and watering?
A lot of people with sensitive eyes are worried about this, but I can work with blinking and watering and it isn’t a problem during treatment.
How do you design the eyeliner?
You are encouraged to come wearing your regular make-up so that I can see your style and feel free to bring any images of eyeliners that you like. I will draw in a suggested eyeliner with a fine microbrush and we will then work together to tweak this to your personal preferences.
How do you choose a colour?
We choose a colour together by applying various pigments close to your eyes. This helps us to select the best possible match to your skin tone and personal preference.
What will it look like immediately after the procedure?
It will appear bolder and darker for the first week, as it heals it will fade to a softer colour. Eyeliner can fade by up to 80% after the first treatment but the colour will be built up on the second treatment 4-6 weeks later.
Does it hurt afterwards?
The area can be sore for a few hours and then tender to the touch for a couple of days afterwards and your eyes may be quite watery for a few hours.
The area may appear slightly swollen and a little pink for a few hours, this is normal.
