FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO I NEED PRIOR CONSULTATION BEFORE MY SEMI-PERMANENT BROW TREATMENT?

No. All details (shape, colour, aftercare etc.) will be discussed on the same day as your treatment. However, you are more than welcome to contact me before if you have any questions related to your booking or treatment.

YOU ARE UNABLE TO GET A COSMETIC TATTOO IF ANY OF THE FOLLOWING APPLY TO YOU:

 

  • If you are under the age of 18

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding as there is a risk of infection

  • Allergy for pigments

  • Blood Clotting Disorders/Haemophilia

  • If you have diseases or viral infections

  • If you are taking Accutane medication. If you have previously taken Accutane you must have stopped taking this medication for 12 months prior to a Semi-permanent brow treatment

  • If you have had major heart issues or organ transplants

  • If you have type 1 or 2 diabetes, cancer or undergoing chemotherapy or radiation

  • Have Eczema or Psoriasis or other skin irritation on the area to be treated

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Medically diagnosed Keloid Scarring

 

If you have had your brows done previously, please contact me and attach clear photos of your brows, as your brows need to be significantly faded for me to perform a new treatment. Alternatively you might need to attend existing pigment removal session(-s) before having new brows done.

WHY IS SEMI-PERMANENT BROW AFTERCARE IMPORTANT?

Good post-treatment care makes up 70% of what ensures your treatment is a success. Please follow to the given aftercare advice, because if you don’t do that, you can lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. 

How successful the treatment will be depends on skin quality, post-treatment care and exposure to various external influences.

Healing is usually completed within or up to 28 days,  after that it is necessary to add the pigment that was lost during the healing process. If the skin is problematic and oily, several corrections can be made.

DO I NEED A PATCH TEST AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT?

If you are a NEW CLIENT (never had this particular treatment done by Alesja) you MUST book in for your PATCH TEST ASAP. If you don’t arrange your patch test you risk losing your appointment, your deposit and you will also be charged a cancellations fee. Your patch test has to be done 24-48 hours before your treatment.

 

Please note even if your patch test has been performed and the result was negative, there is still a risk of reacting to the treatment as patch test results might not be accurate.

We advise you to book your appointment a couple days before any important event in case of an allergic reaction. 

DOES IT HURT?

The treatment can be slightly uncomfortable but bearable. It doesn't hurt as such, it is more a sensation. Some clients may experience more swelling and redness than others. Prior to the procedure, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the brow area to numb the skin (if required). Numbing cream will be provided during the procedure for clients comfort.
