FAQ

What is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation, involves tattooing pigments into the skin to enhance facial features like eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips. It is like a beautiful secret that enhances your features. At District of Beauty, we specialize in creating the most natural-looking brows for you.

Is it truly Permanent? 

While it's long-lasting, it does fade gradually over time. Some clients may have a faint shadow left, but don't worry; we have solutions for that.

Is Permanent Makeup Painful?

While some clients experience mild discomfort, we make sure you're as comfortable as possible with topical numbing agents. It feels like a scratch you are itching. Some even find it relaxing enough to fall asleep!

How do I choose the right brow shape?

Choosing the right brow style is our specialty. Your unique face shape, muscle movements, bone structure, and features dictate the style. Each face is one-of-a-kind, just like you, and we are here to guide you in celebrating your individual beauty.

How do you pick the right brow colour?

The highly specialized way I choose colour may surprise you. Your skin tone is actually the key factor. Unlike makeup that sits on top, permanent makeup blends naturally with your skin. At District of Beauty, we're experts in color theory to ensure your brows harmonize with your skin, not look like stickers.

Do Permanent Makeup colours change over time?

They may age gracefully, but there won't be any dramatic color shifts. We use a less is more approach, high-quality pigments combined with an extensive knowledge of color theory to keep your look fresh and vibrant.

Will Permanent Makeup look fake or unnatural?

At District of Beauty, our forte is creating Natural Looking Permanent Makeup Brows. In fact, many clients are delighted to share that friends and colleagues are often surprised to learn their brows have been enhanced, thanks to their authentic appearance. Concerned about the overly 'tattooed' look? Rest assured, we've all seen our share of less-than-natural brows. However, with our focus on expertly matching the right shape, technique, and color to your unique features, you can be confident in receiving results that are beautifully and seamlessly integrated with your natural beauty.

How many sessions do I need?

Your journey to perfect brows at District of Beauty is a two-step process. Initially, we start with laying down the base, shaping, and color in the first session. Then, 8 to 12 weeks later, you return for your Perfecting Session, where we truly bring your brows to life. This staged approach not only ensures your comfort throughout the process but also provides the flexibility to make any necessary adjustments. While an additional touch-up is rarely needed, our conservative and careful approach is key to achieving the best healed results.

How often do I need Touch Ups? Do I need to come "Annually"?

Absolutely not! At District of Beauty, we prioritize a conservative approach and skin health, meaning you may not need a refresher for about 2 to 4 years, on average after your Initial & Perfecting Session.

How long does a Permanent Makeup Session take?

No rush here! Our first appointment lasts about 3 hours, including consultation, brow mapping, custom color selection, and the procedure itself.

Can I swim or sunbathe after getting Permanent Makeup?

Love swimming and sunbathing? While we encourage you to enjoy life, it's best to give your skin a short break for a few weeks to ensure your permanent makeup heals perfectly.

Can I exercise immediately after getting permanent makeup?

Eager to return to your exercise routine? We are with you! While I suggest a brief break from strenuous workouts (about 7 to 10 days) post-procedure, this is because salt in the sweat can compromise your healed results. The break is worth it for the beautifully healed results.

Is Permanent Makeup safe?

Safety is paramount. We are fully committed to your well-being, using sterile equipment and high-quality products. Your trust and health are our top priorities.

Is Permanent Makeup safe for individuals with sensitve skin or allergies?

Allergies or sensitive skin? I've got you covered. Let's discuss your concerns, as your comfort and skin health are my top priorities.

What is the After Care Routine after Permanent Makeup?

Aftercare is crucial to the success of your brow transformation. At District of Beauty, we provide top-quality aftercare products along with detailed instructions to ensure optimal results. While we'll cover aftercare extensively during your appointment, here’s a brief overview:

  • Gently wash your brows and apply a special ointment twice daily for 10 days.

  • For the first week, avoid intense workouts, hot tubs, swimming, and applying makeup directly on the brows (makeup on the rest of your face is fine).

  • Remember, our post-care guidelines are designed to ensure your brows heal beautifully and achieve the desired look.

What is the healing process for Permanent Makeup?

While healing is a unique journey for everyone, here's a general breakdown:

 

  • Day 1: Mild swelling and redness

  • Days 2-5: Brows appear bolder and darker, then begin to lighten

  • Days 5-8: Mild flaking may occur

  • Days 8-15: Brows may look lighter or cloudy

  • Days 15-30: Your true color re-emerges

  • 8-12 weeks: Perfecting session

 

Remember, we're here to guide you through this journey and set you up for success.

Is Permanent Makeup suitable for everyone?

While permanent makeup offers incredible benefits, it's important to note that it may not be suitable for everyone. For your safety and the best possible results, there are certain conditions where permanent makeup is not recommended. These include:

  • Pregnancy or Nursing

  • Blood Thinners and Certain Medications: If you're on blood-thinning medications or any treatments that affect wound healing, permanent makeup may not be a safe option.

  • Slow Wound Healing: Individuals with conditions that slow down the healing process may not be ideal candidates for permanent makeup

Our priority is your well-being, so we carefully evaluate each client's suitability for the procedure during our initial consultation. If you have any concerns or specific medical conditions, please feel free to discuss them with me.

Will I still need my brow makeup?

At District of Beauty, we specialize in creating natural-looking brows that enhance your confidence and blend seamlessly into your everyday look. Our focus is on achieving a style that feels right for daily wear, ensuring you don't wake up to brows that are too bold for a typical day. However, keep your brow pencil handy for those times when you want to add an extra touch of glamour for special occasions. With your new brows serving as the perfect base, you’ll have the flexibility to elevate your look whenever you desire.

How do I know what Permanent Makeup Brow Technique is for me?

Navigating the world of permanent makeup can seem daunting, but at District of Beauty, we've simplified the process. It's less about choosing a specific technique and more about defining your desired outcome – be it hair-like strokes, fuller brows, or a soft, powdery finish. Our process includes an in-depth consultation and a thorough analysis of your skin and brow hair, ensuring a tailored approach that leads to your perfect brows

I had my brows done somewhere else. Do you offer corrections?

At District of Beauty, we understand that sometimes previous brow work may not meet your expectations. Corrections or Prior Work is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The feasibility of a correction depends on several factors, such as the existing shape, color, and condition of your brows. If you've had previous work done and are considering a correction, I encourage you to send me a message. We can discuss your specific situation and explore the best options for you.

What if Brow Trends change?

A timeless brow, customized to enhance your unique beauty, never goes out of style. At District of Beauty, we don't follow trends; instead, we create effortlessly beautiful brows that appear as if you were born with them.

I want Permanent Makeup but I am nervous.

Nerves are completley normal & a good sign you are making a well thought out decision. District of Beauty is all about collaboration. Your input, wants, and needs are valued, ensuring a successful outcome that makes you feel your best.
