Frequently Asked Questions

We have answered some of the most frequently asked questions we get from our clients here at Enhanced Face Studio. You can find answers to questions like "Is it painful" and "How do I schedule an appointment". If you have a question that is not on this page, you are welcome to email us here.

Questions about the procedure

  •  Is it painful?        Topical anesthetics are used before and during the procedure to keep you  comfortable. Your comfort level is assessed and addressed throughout the procedure.

  • Is it permanent or semi-permanent?     Both! It IS a tattoo in the skin so it IS permanent. However, because it does fade over time, some consider it semi-permanent.

  • How long does it last?     MANY factors affect cosmetic tattoo longevity such as lifestyle, sun exposure, smoking, skin products, skin consistency, etc. Generally, most cosmetic procedures last a year before needing a color refresher. Color and crispness will fade over time if not maintained.

  • How are pigment colors determined?      At the beginning of your service, possible colors are chosen based on your skin undertone. The pigments are swatched on your skin and we choose the best fit together. Every color is custom blended for each client.

  • What if I have previous/old permanent makeup?    This is why sending a picture during the scheduling process is necessary. Some old permanent makeup requires a color correction before the target color can be implanted; some requires lightening or removal before any new work can be done. This will be discussed during the consultation.                                                   

  •  *Working over permanent makeup done by another artist is NOT a touchup or color refresh.*

  • Should I shave my eyebrows before my appointment?  NO! Please come to your appointment with no makeup on your brows but with your brow hair intact. I try to incorporate as much brow hair into the design so there is minimal maintenance and to achieve a very realistic, natural look.

  • Why are my eyebrow hairs still white/grey? The procedure is a tattoo into the skin, not an eyebrow dye service. You will still need to tint your eyebrow hair.

  • What kind of pigment lightening is performed? The studio uses a saline-based removal system to lighten/remove pigment. Multiple sessions are usually required to lighten pigment satisfactorily.

Questions about appointments

  • How do I schedule an appointment?    You can click here to get to our appointment request page. The BEST way to book an appointment and ask questions is via email. Please send a good quality, full face picture in good lighting WITHOUT makeup to to request an appointment. It is helpful to also include an additional photo with makeup. You will receive a response promptly!

  • What if I need to cancel?    Please be respectful when booking a service. Late cancellations cannot always be filled. The most advanced notice is appreciated, but life happens. **However, if an appointment is canceled, a NON-REFUNDABLE booking fee of $50 will be required to reschedule subsequent appointments. The fee will be applied to the procedure cost.**

  • What other services are performed at this studio?    My business is solely focused on cosmetic tattoo procedures of eyebrows, eyeliner, lips and 3D areolae. Beauty marks, freckles, and saline pigment lightening are also offered.

  • Can I bring a friend with me to my appointment? No; I work best with total focus, and another person in the studio would be too distracting.
