Q: What is permanent makeup, and how does it work?

A: Permanent makeup is a revolutionary technique that enhances your natural features by implanting pigments into the skin using specialized tools and precise artistry. Whether it's eyebrows, eyeliner, or lip color, permanent makeup allows you to wake up every day feeling effortlessly radiant.

Q: Will the procedure be painful?

A: We understand that the thought of any discomfort can be daunting. However, our dedicated team prioritizes your comfort throughout the entire process. We utilize advanced numbing techniques and topical anesthetics to minimize any potential discomfort. Rest assured, your experience will be as gentle and soothing as possible.

Q: How long does permanent makeup last?

A: Although it is called permanent makeup, it is a semi-permanent procedure designed to last for an extended period, giving you the freedom from daily makeup application. However, individual factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and sun exposure can affect the longevity of the results. Typically, touch-ups are recommended every 1-2 years to maintain the desired intensity and freshness of your permanent makeup.

Q: Is permanent makeup safe?

A: Your safety is our utmost priority. We adhere to strict hygiene and sanitation standards, following industry best practices to ensure a safe environment for our clients. Our pigments are of the highest quality, hypoallergenic, and FDA-approved. Our experienced artists are extensively trained in sterile procedures, minimizing any risks associated with the treatment.

Q: Can permanent makeup help with specific eyebrow concerns?

A: Absolutely! Whether you have sparse eyebrows, uneven growth, or have lost them altogether, our eyebrow services can address your specific concerns. We have techniques that can recreate the appearance of natural hair and restore symmetry to your brows. Witness the transformation as we work with you to achieve the brows you've always dreamed of, boosting your confidence with each stroke.

Q: What should I expect during the healing process?

A: After the procedure, it is normal to experience some mild redness and swelling. Your permanent makeup will go through a healing process, and the true color will gradually emerge. It is crucial to follow our aftercare instructions provided to ensure optimal healing and long-lasting results. We'll give you everything you need to support your healing journey.

Q: Do you still have to maintain cosmetic brow tattoos?

A: Cosmetic brow tattoos do require regular grooming such as waxing or threading to control the natural brow hairs and keep the overall shape of your new brows nice and tidy. While the initial procedure provides semi-permanent results, over time the pigment may fade or change color over the years due to factors such as sun exposure, skin type, and individual variations in the healing process.

To maintain the desired appearance of cosmetic brow tattoos, individuals may need touch-up sessions. These touch-ups involve adding more pigment to the brows or adjusting the shape to ensure a consistent and pleasing look. The frequency of touch-ups varies from person to person but is typically recommended every 2-3 years.

It's important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the technician who performed the procedure and to protect the treated area from excessive sun exposure, as UV rays can contribute to fading. Additionally, using gentle skincare products and avoiding abrasive treatments in the brow area can help prolong the longevity of cosmetic brow tattoos. Regular maintenance is key to preserving the quality and appearance of the tattooed eyebrows over time.

Q: Can I still wear regular makeup after getting permanent makeup?

A: Absolutely! Permanent makeup is designed to enhance your natural beauty, but it does not restrict you from wearing additional makeup if desired. In fact, many of our clients enjoy the convenience of waking up with beautifully defined features and then adding their favorite makeup products for special occasions or when they want to experiment with different looks. 

Q: How long will the procedure take at the appointment? 

A: The duration of the procedure will vary depending on the specific service and your unique needs ranging from one hour to three hours. While we understand that time is valuable, we also believe in dedicating the necessary attention to ensure exceptional results. At Vive Brow Studio, we prioritize quality over speed. 

Q: Will permanent makeup look natural?

A: Of course! Gone are the days of the thick black McDonalds arches above our eyes. Our goal is to create a look that enhances your natural features and complements your unique beauty. Our artist has a keen eye for detail and an artistic touch that ensures your brows appear seamless and natural. However, if you want that defined and filled in makeup look, we will accommodate your request. We also take into account factors such as your skin tone, facial structure, and personal preferences to achieve results that are both stunning and authentic. 

Q: What if I'm not sure about the specific look I want?

A: It's completely normal to feel uncertain about the exact style or shape you desire. Our experienced artists are not only experts in their craft but also compassionate listeners. We will take the time to understand your preferences, assess your facial structure, and offer expert guidance. Together, we will collaborate to create a customized look that suits your unique personality, ensuring you feel comfortable and elated with the final result.
