Your artist will use a machine to permanently implant pigment into the eyelid skin after numbing thoroughly. The color will be tattooed into the lash line and above the lashes for a result that brings your eyes forward and makes them stand out. The liner is pre-drawn to show you what the outcome will look like.
A topical anesthetic is applied for 20 minutes prior to the treatment to reduce discomfort and promote relaxation. Most people report a "scratching" sensation that is tolerable. People with sensitive skin may experience more sensation, but again, the sensation is tolerable.
The eyeliner will be designed to your request-bold, natural or subtle. The choice is yours. We will work with you to achieve a look that best suits your lifestyle and needs.
We recommend black for maximum impact and definition. Brown is available but we do not recommend light colours as they tend to look “faded”.
As long as your skin is healthy and in good condition without any eye irritations, you can qualify for the eyeliner procedure. However, if your skin is extremely loose, you will not be a good candidate. Most women over 60 years are poor candidates due to skin elasticity..
Eyelash extensions must be removed prior to eyeliner treatment. They can be reapplied after two weeks.
The eyes will will be puffy for approximately 3 days post procedure, similar to the appearance of eyes after a good cry. Cold compresses are recommend immediately after the procedure to greatly reduce swelling. Most swelling will go away by day 4.
No. Eyelash growth serums such as Latisse or other OTC brands must be discontinued for 8 months prior to the eyeliner procedure to reduce the risk of bruising/migration.
No. Working out can cause swelling and is not allowed for 1 week post procedure to ensure beautifully healed results. Makeup application must be avoided for one week to avoid any bacterial buildup in the area.
For one week post treatment, it is important to clean the area daily and apply the provided aftercare gel to promote healing. Cold compress should be applied for a minimum of 1 hour to reduce swelling immediately after the procedure.
