Q:

Do you have to shave your eyebrows off to get the eyebrows done? MY biggest fear is that they will LOOK tattood on and not "natural" AND that I will have to shave them.

Carrie R.  asked on  Jul 20, 2012

A:

Absolutely not do you need to shave off your existing eyebrows. We work with what you have. This is the one time in your life you can have whatever shape eyebrows you want so we will design them with makeup before we start and possibly tweeze out any hair that is not in the final pattern that you approve, but we will never shave off your eyebrows and highly recommend that no one shave their brows! If you are really concerned about a more natural looking brow you can request that a hand tool be used and the technique is much softer and more natural looking if that's your preference.

Q:

I have had this procedure done on both upper and bottom lashes at another salon. The procedure never lasted after 3 touch up appointments. Have you seen this problem in your experience? Thanks, Jan.

jan w.  asked on  Jul 18, 2012

A:

Skin is very volatile and each individual is very different. As you know some people can't tan, some people get stretch marks, some people have freckles, etc. We cannot guarantee color for anyone, however, I have personally performed thousands of eyeliner procedures and have never had a client call to tell me after 3 touch up appointments they have no color. If you would like to call for a consulation so we could discuss medications, skin care, etc that would be helpful

Q:

Really considering the inner rim eyeliner. I have problems getting my eyeliner to stay on the inner rim. Do I need to worry about safety, and How long does one treatment tend to last?

Diane S.  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

We do not offer mucosal eyeliner as we do feel it is not the best thing to do for eyes. We work with eye surgeons/doctors who feel that this can cause chronic blepharitis and therefore not worth the risk.

Q:

Hello, my eyes are very sensitive and can be overly dry, particularly in the winter (eye drops don't usually help much). How would you say getting a procedure like this would affect the eyes, in general. Have you had any complaints from clients with particularly dry eyes? Do you do lips as well?

Rebecca H.  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

Alot of people that have dry eyes like to have permanent makeup as they are always using drops which causes their liner to smudge. This will not cause any additional dryness. We do lip procedures but there is a lot more work involved in having them done and they are therefore not part of the groupon deal. Once you are a groupon client we will offer you a discounted price if you would like to discuss having your lips done at that time.

Q:

Some permanent eyeliner that I've seen looks so harsh...thin, dark, unnatural. Is there a choice of color (preference medium brown)? Can the shape be adjusted to look softer (almost smudged) vs a thin, harsh line?

Sue  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

All of our technicicans are color mixing specialists and will mix whatever color you prefer. We do not use the machine to do eyeliners (we use a hand tool technique) and therefore the look is much softer and more natural unless a thin harsh line is requested.

Q:

Approximately how long does eyebrow permanent make up last (or reaches a quite-faded level)?

heidi a.  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

Hi Heidi. Unfortunately everyone is different as skin is very different. We have clients that come in for touch ups once a year like clockwork so it always looks its best but then we have others we don't see for 5-8 years. Sun, oily skin, strong abrasive skin care regimens are all things that would cause the pigment to breakdown quicker. The good news is that once our client you never pay full prices again. You would only pay touch up fees which are usually anywhere from $100 to $150 depending on how thick and what you're having done. If you only pay that once every 2-3 years it's still cheaper than makeup and the beauty of it is you don't have to put it on every day!!

Q:

how long a wait is there for an appointment?

marcia g.  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

Q:

How experienced are the tattoo artists? Does a person have options for shape & colors?

Kristi H.  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

All work will be performed by the owner of the facility who has over 12 years experience or one of our fully trained/licensed practitioners/instructors who have not only attended our academy originally but have apprenticed under the owner and are very experienced. We design all eyebrows first with pencil and we are all color mixing specialists to come up with the perfect color for your skin type, preference, etc.

Q:

Hi there, can i use this for touching up eyeliner? If so, which option?

Sukhvir  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

Touch ups are charged at the rate of $50 per half hour so it may be less expensive for you to call and schedule a follow-up appointment. A touch up for an upper OR lower is most likely $50 to $100 (groupon price $99.00). Touch up for a full eyeliner is most likely $100 - $150 (groupon price for full eyeliner is $165)

Q:

Is the permanent Makeup "tatooing"?

Emma H.  asked on  Jul 17, 2012

A:

Whenever putting ink "under the skin" it is considered to be a form of tattooing. However, we do not use traditional tattoo equipment or ink. We use pigment that is formulated for faces and we use manual tools that are much less invasive and comfortable. We are however considered to be tattoo practitioners. Our facility is not a tattoo shop and you can view our procedure rooms on our website at www.globallypreferred.com
