WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?
Permanent makeup and microblading is a safe cosmetic procedure where high-quality pigment is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin.
IS PERMANENT MAKEUP FOR ME?
YES! It is for everyone. Men and women both benefit from the supernatural results of microblading and permanent makeup. Permanent makeup enhances what you already have, offering a get ready and go look much quicker than applying makeup every day! BONUS, it saves money too!
WHY SHOULD SOMEONE HAVE PERMANENT MAKEUP?
This is such an easy and effortless way to look ready with no time at all. Permanent makeup is perfect for a busy person or professional who has little to no time to apply daily makeup. With permanent makeup we create symmetry and help clients with a supernatural and fresh look.
HOW LONG WITH MICROBLADING/PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?
Permanent makeup can last a long time. I tell most of my clients 3-5 years, and with a little refresher and your good to go again. Everyone's skin type is different and will ultimately determine how often touchups are needed.
WHAT IS THE RECOVER TIME?
Healing varies from person to person, but typically there is no down time. With proper topical anesthetics and numbing agents used swelling is minimal and goes down within two hours. There is almost no bleeding and minimal bruising. All clients receive an aftercare bag with instructions and healing ointment. Your permanent makeup or microblading may feel bold the first few days but will quickly soften giving you an effortless natural look.
HOW LONG DOES EACH PROCEDURE TAKE?
Depending on which Ink by Britt technician you choose plan on anywhere from 1-2 hours. All appointments start with a sit-down consultation where all concerns are addressed, and all procedures are mapped out and approved by everyone!
DOES IT HURT?
We use really great topical anesthetics. We even find our clients taking a bit of a nap! Some people are more sensitive than others, but we do everything to keep our clients comfortable at all times.
CAN I HAVE MULTIPLE SERVICES DONE IN ONE DAY?
Absolutely! We even recommend it. It even is a bit quicker to do it this way than on different days, as we can overlap your numbing time. Another key factor to getting it all done in one day is all of the heal time is consolidated into one time frame.
CAN I USE LASH SERUMS OR HAVE LASH EXTENSIONS WHEN GETTING PERMANENT EYELINER?
Not two weeks before or two weeks after. Once healed you can go back to your normal eye routines. Please do not wear contact lenses the day of eyeliner procedure.
THINGS TO KNOW PRIOR TO PMU
Your skin will ultimately determine your healed results. Every skin type is different, and I cannot guarantee results. If your skin is sun damaged, thick or uneven in texture, excessively dry or oily we may have a harder time getting desired results. Lifestyle, medications, smoking, sun exposure all determine the longevity of your permanent makeup.
Please avoid any alcohol, coffee, caffeine, fish oil, ibuprofen or Tylenol or any blood thinner beforehand. excessive bleeding makes it hard to get desired natural results.
Stop using any anti-aging products such as Retin-A, Glycolic or Alpha-Hydroxy Acids or exfoliants 2 weeks prior to appointment.
IF you are prone to cold sores and are getting a lip blushing tattoo, please consider starting an antiviral. You will need to consult with your doctor. Exfoliate lips the day of procedure and keep hydrated for best results.
WILL I NEED A TOUCHUP?
Most clients to not need a 6–8-week touchup, however if you feel one is needed, please don't hesitate to hop on any of our Ink by Britt providers books and we will take great care of you.
