HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
It will take a bit of time to draw the lines. We get you comfortable and then numb you. The entire visit will be about 2 hours. The actual procedure takes about 40 minutes… full lips will always take much longer.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
The process is minimally invasive. Most clients can return to daily activities right after a procedure. Some may want to rest after an eyeliner procedure. Complete recovery will take 4-10 days with proper follow up care. Complete written and verbal instructions will be included.
DOES IT HURT?
Permanent Make up has a reputation for being painful. Kimberley is sensitive to this fact and committed to the importance of controlling the pain. She uses strong anesthetics similar to what our dentists use.

Applying Permanent Make up is uncomfortable. However, it does not hurt the same as getting a tattoo.

  • Eyebrows
    Many ladies fall asleep in Kimberley’s chair when getting their eyebrows done.
  • Eyeliner
    This is the most uncomfortable procedure… after the numbing takes effect most clients feel a sensation that tickles. The rubbing is what makes it tender.
  • Lips
    Full lips take the longest time so it is a bit tiring but the discomfort is minimal. Lip liner is a less complicated procedure.
WHAT ABOUT THE COLOR?
Your skin color and the desired result are the most important things to consider. Together we will be able to select or mix a color that will be perfect for you. The bottom line is you must approve it.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Your beautiful new look has long-term results.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes. We are committed to the highest standards of your looks and care. We subscribe to the highest ethical, hygienic and procedural standards in the industry. Kimberley uses prepackaged, sterilized, disposable parts and needles. All pigments are natural, hypoallergenic, and approved by the FDA for cosmetic use.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS?
The pigment is being embedded under your dermal layer of skin so minor swelling or bruising may or may not occur for the first day or so after the procedure. This will always heal completely. Kimberley is very thorough explaining how your skin will accept the pigment and the variables that may occur.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE ALLERGIC TO ANYTHING?
  • The anesthetics, Tetracaine, Lidocaine or Epinephrine
  • Latex gloves

These are the most typical allergies. It is always best to be safe and consult with your Doctor if you are not sure that you may have allergies.
