Is permanent makeup, permanent? 

All permanent makeup will fade and lose its shape overtime. However, it is still permanent and may not ever completely disappear. 

Does permanent makeup hurt? 

Permanent makeup is a form of tattooing and a pain free experience should not be expected. Here at Brow Envy Edmonton we use high quality numbing products and we strive to keep you comfortable during the process. Most clients experience a maximum of 4/10 pain with average of mild discomfort or 2/10. 

Why does permanent makeup need a 6 week touchup? 

The application techniques of permanent makeup require very light hand to keep color true. If applied too deep your permanent makeup can change to an undesirable color. Because of the depth we work at more fallout is expected, as compared to regular tattooing . 

Why does permanent makeup change from brown to undesirable colors like pink, purple, grey? 

Permanent makeup is as much of art as it is a science and depending on the color your brows have gone it could be numerous reasons why it changed. Type of ink, depth of implantation, improper color theory, sun exposure, medical conditions like undiagnosed thyroid problems, and age of the work.
