Question: What type of pigments do you use?
Answer: Pigments used are always mineral or synthetic, and are made into smaller molecules than those used in ink for tattoos. These pigments are eliminated by the lymphatic system, over time.
They undergo rigorous testing for allergies and toxicity. The use of a very fine needle, equipped with a locking device, combined with the expert knowledge of a professional, come together in order to avoid deep penetration of the dermis.
As a result, the pigment is placed into the outermost layer of the skin (the epidermis).

Question: How long will the small scabs on my eyes/my lips/my eyebrows last?
Answer: These tiny scabs (crusts) that will form will remain for 4-7 days, depending on the healing process of your skin. You will feel them, but in general, they are not noticed by others. They will disappear very quickly and in a natural manner.
Question: After how long will the results be final?
Answer: In terms of your eyebrows, just after your session, your color will seem much darker. After about a week, when your small scabs disappear, you will notice that the color will have lost a lot of intensity (60%) and your eyebrows will look natural.
Concerning your eyes, again, the color is darker on the day of the application. In 5-7 days, your permanent eye makeup will look like an eye pencil. This is because the color rests on top of your skin. Throughout the healing process, the color will fade considerably as it will be absorbed by your skin.
Finally, in terms of your lips, they will be darker for about four days. They will lose 50% to 70% of this too dark color, and it takes about three weeks (at least) to see the true color of your permanent makeup. The lips are mucosal and they respond differently than your skin. The results take longer to appear.
Question: What is the difference between permanent makeup and tattoo ( tattoo ) ?
Answer: This process is essentially the same in both cases , except that in permanent makeup, the pigments are placed in the superficial part of the skin, less than a millimeter deep. Thus, the color is localized in the epidermis and not in the dermis. Another advantage of permanent makeup is that we use natural pigments that gradually disappear with time. The tattoo is designed with ink that never goes away. Thus, it will accompany you all your life, and it will be very difficult to get rid of them if you no longer want them.
