FAQ

HOW IS BROW SHAPE, COLOR AND STYLE DECIDED?

AT THE TIME OF YOUR APPOINTMENT, YOUR SKIN TYPE, TEXTURE, THICKNESS AND UNDERTONES WILL BE ANALYZED, AS WELL AS BROW AND HAIR COLOR, NATURAL GROWTH PATTERNS AND ASYMMETRIES, FACIAL SHAPE, AND BONE STRUCTURE. SAINT ROSE PREFERS NATURAL BROW STYLES, AND WE WILL DESIGN AND SHAPE THE BROW TO SOMETHING THAT IS BOTH FLATTERING AND BALANCED. COLOR WILL BE SELECTED TO CLOSELY MATCH YOUR BROW HAIR AND UNWANTED BROW HAIR WILL BE REMOVED. THE TECHNIQUE USED DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT (HAIR STROKES, SHADING, OR COMBINATION) WILL DEPEND ON YOUR SKIN TYPE AND DESIRED RESULTS.

IS IT PAINFUL?

WHILE PAIN TOLERANCE VARIES FROM PERSON TO PERSON, TWO STRONG TOPICAL ANESTHETICS ARE USED DURING YOUR SESSION TO MAXIMIZE COMFORT. MOST CLIENTS EXPERIENCE LITTLE TO NO DISCOMFORT AND STAY QUITE RELAXED. SOME SENSITIVITY COMES IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TOPICAL ANESTHETIC WEARS OFF AND AFTER THAT THERE IS MINIMAL TENDERNESS AND SWELLING.

WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE IMMEDIATELY AFTER?

 FOLLOWING THE PROCEDURE, THE PIGMENT ON THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN WILL BEGIN TO OXIDIZE AND APPEAR DARKER/BOLDER. IN 7-10 DAYS THE BROW WILL BEGIN TO FLAKE AND PEEL, SOMETIMES CREATING A SPOTTY APPEARANCE, UNTIL THE ENTIRE BROW HAS FINISHED EXFOLIATING. IMMEDIATELY AFTER PEELING, THE HEALING EPIDERMIS WILL CAUSE THE BROW TO APPEAR LIGHT OR MUTED. OVER THE NEXT 4-6 WEEKS, THE EPIDERMIS WILL NORMALIZE AND THE SOFTENED PIGMENT WILL BLOOM BACK TO THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ONCE HEALED?

HEALED RESULTS WILL VARY FROM PERSON TO PERSON. THERE ARE MANY VARIABLES THAT WILL AFFECT YOUR FINAL RESULT INCLUDING YOUR SKIN TYPE, SKIN TONE, COLORS USED, SKIN THICKNESS, MEDICATIONS AND MEDICAL CONDITIONS, LIFESTYLE, AMOUNT OF NATURAL BROW HAIR, BLEEDING, AFTERCARE, APPLICATION TECHNIQUES AND MORE. RESULTS CAN NOT BE GUARANTEED DUE TO THESE FACTORS. MOST CLIENTS WILL EXPERIENCE A BOLD, CRISP IMMEDIATE RESULT THAT WILL HEAL INTO A DIFFUSED AND SOFTENED VERSION.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED A FOLLOW-UP?

TWO SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE MOST BROWS. THE FIRST SESSION WILL BE USED TO CREATE SHAPE AND APPLY THE FOUNDATION OF PIGMENT AND TEXTURE. EVERYONE HEALS AND RETAINS PIGMENT DIFFERENTLY, AND ONCE HEALED YOU WILL RETURN IN 6-12 WEEKS FOR AN ADDITIONAL PERFECTING AND LAYERING SESSION TO COMPLETE YOUR BROWS. OCCASIONALLY, CERTAIN CLIENTS MAY NEED OR DESIRE A 3RD SESSION, DEPENDING ON THEIR SKIN TYPE OR DESIRED RESULT. AFTER YOUR INITIAL FOLLOW-UP IS COMPLETED, MAINTENANCE IS RECOMMENDED EVERY 12-18 MONTHS.

SOMEONE ELSE DID MY EYEBROWS. CAN YOU FIX THEM OR TOUCH THEM UP?

WE ACCEPT CLIENTS WITH PREVIOUS WORK ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS WITH PRIOR APPROVAL. PLEASE CONTACT US SO WE MAY CONSULT VIA EMAIL.

CAN I GET TATTOOED IF I'M PREGNANT OR BREAST FEEDING?

AS A PRECAUTION, WE DO NOT PERFORM COSMETIC TATTOO SERVICES ON WOMEN WHO ARE EXPECTING OR BREAST FEEDING.

I LIVE OUT OF TOWN/STATE AND I WANT TO HAVE MY EYEBROWS DONE BY YOU. CAN I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?

OUT OF TOWN CLIENTS ARE WELCOME BUT PLEASE BE ADVISED, BROWS ARE USUALLY DONE WITH A MINIMUM OF 2 APPOINTMENTS AND YOU WILL LIKELY NEED TO RETURN WITHIN 12 WEEKS FOR A FOLLOW UP. THERE'S ALWAYS A CHANCE YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE FOLLOW UP DEPENDING ON YOUR SKIN TYPE. IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO PLAN A TRIP SOLELY AROUND HAVING YOUR BROWS DONE. YOUR ARTIST IS HUMAN AND SUSCEPTIBLE TO ILLNESS, INJURY, OR OTHER EMERGENCIES, THAT WHILE UNCOMMON, MAY MAKE IT A POSSIBILITY FOR ANY APPOINTMENT ON THE BOOKS TO NEED TO BE RESCHEDULED, REGARDLESS OF IF YOU TRAVELED FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT.

DO YOU HAVE A CANCELLATION LIST?

WE DO NOT HOLD A CANCELLATION LIST AT THIS TIME. CLIENTS WHO HAVE MISSED THE BOOKING WINDOW ARE ENCOURAGED TO JOIN OUR MAILING LIST TO BE NOTIFIED OF THE NEXT ROUND OF APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITIES.
