This is one of the biggest questions I get asked by clients.
After your consultation, and drawing out the shape of your lips, brows, eyeliner or freckles using pencil professional grade numbing cream is applied.
The cream is left for 20 minutes to work its magic before starting any work. Most clients find the cream works very well, and I’ve regularly had clients fall asleep while I work on their new look.
After a ‘first pass’ another layer of numbing cream is applied. At this stage I use a different type of numbing cream, which is specifically designed for open skin.
The numbing creams I use also have the added benefits of helping to slow or stop any bleeding, and minimise swelling by constricting the blood vessels.
