Can I bring my own numbing gel/cream?

No, according to SA health regulations, the anaesthetic must be prescribed to you by a doctor, and you cannot bring any over the counter anaesthetic/products with you for use. Additionally, the prescribed anaesthetic cannot be shared with any other persons.

What are the benefits of our recommended numbing gel?

Our numbing gel has a higher percentage of active ingredients than any over the counter numbing agents, hence it is stronger and provides better comfort. It is a clear gel that works fast without any dilution of the pigment

It is also compatible with the PH of your skin, preventing skin burning.

What are the aftercare instructions for semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing?

Post-treatment care is a crucial step in treatment success, if necessary aftercare precautions are not followed, excessive amounts of the pigment can be lost. On the first 7 days after the procedure the pigment is darker, it is normal for the pigment to fade by 25% to 40% and lose its intensity. Then it would look light but do not worry it takes up to 28 days for complete healing and seeing the true representation of how they look. A touch-up visit is required after 4 to 6 weeks to fill in any missing strokes or any missing pigment of the eyebrows during the healing process.
