HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE?
The procedure takes 3.5 to 4 hours long. Please make sure you reserve enough time for your appointment.
DOES IT HURT?
Topical numbing cream is used throughout the procedure.
The pain level varies by person. Some compare the pain to eyebrow threading and to some the pain is minimal.
Your comfort and satisfaction is our main priority. Your artist will ask for your pain level using a scale from 1-10 to make sure you are comfortable.
