BEFORE THE TREATMENT
Q. Will I need to remove my eye makeup for the treatment?
A. It is required that eye make-up is removed for any eye treatment. However, please wear your usual make-up for the appointment so we can see your style.
Q. Should I bring my favourite eyeliner pencil?
A. If you have a particular colour tone of eyeliner pencil that you would like to be replicated, please bring it with you to the treatment. This will enable the artist to custom blend an appropriate permanent cosmetics pigment.
Q. I’ve had my lashes tinted / permed, can I still have an eye treatment?
A. Any eyelash tinting or perming should be carried out no sooner than one week before, or two weeks after, the treatment.
Q. My eyes are sensitive. I’m worried about blinking and my eyes watering during the treatment. Is that a problem?
A. This is a normal concern for first time clients and nothing to worry about. As you can see in Bethanie Lumb’s video, showing her having an eyeliner treatment, it’s not a problem if you are prone to blinking or your eyes water.
Q. Will my eyes swell a lot after the treatment?
A. Swelling is relatively minimal and usually occurs for up to 12 to 24 hours after the treatment. Ice packs can be used to minimise this.
Q. Will I need someone to drive me home after having an eye treatment?
A. It’s possible that your eyes could be a little watery after the treatment. As a precaution, we recommend that anyone having an eye treatment should ensure that they have someone to drive them home.
AFTER THE TREATMENT
Q. Will my eyeliner look very dark after the treatment?
A. You should be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. This will subside and become lighter as the skin heals. This process can take up to 10 days.
Q. Can I apply mascara after the treatment?
A. You should wait until the treatment area has healed before applying make-up. If you have had an eye treatment, a new mascara is recommended.
