Let’s start form the beginning. For about a year now, I have been interested in the whole ‘permanent cosmetic’ world. It’s not something that I have ever considered initially, but as I am getting older and busier, I just don’t have time to perfectly color in my brows every morning. I have always had full brows, needing to pluck every single day…sigh. But lately I’ve noticed a few spots here and there that need to be a little more filled in. So I started researching the Soft Tap application method and thought it would be the right choice for me. But hello, tattoo…that can be a scary thought!! So I decided to meet with Taby and talk about some of my hesitations. She was a great listener and answered all of my questions, which I’m sure she’s answered hundreds of times!
Chances are you have similar concerns, especially since you are reading this. I thought a great way would be for me to share some FAQ of permanent cosmetics.
Q: So this is like a tattoo, right?
A: Similar, but this procedure is done with an instrument by hand, where there are no machines used. The technician has more control and can make it look as natural as possible. It only affects the first few layers of skin, lasting about 3-5 years, whereas a tattoo is forever.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: No! So the first application feels a little like plucking, but not nearly as bad. It wasn’t uncomfortable for me at all, just felt like pressure. After the first layer is on, Taby applied a numbing creme and I didn’t feel anything after that.
