+ HOW LONG DOES A COSMETIC TATTOO TAKE TO HEAL?

It will take 2 weeks for the brows to visibly heal and 6 weeks for your skin to completely heal and show accurate results.

+ HOW LONG DOES A COSMETIC TATTOO LAST?

The colour pigments and placed into the outer layer of skin (not as deep as traditional tattoos). Feather touch brows can last 9 - 18 months depending on your skin type, although, will naturally fade over time. Ombre / Combination / Powder brows can last anywhere between 12-24 months. Lip tattooing can last anywhere between 2-6 years. Everyone’s skin will take the pigment differently and results may differ for everyone. In order to maintain that fresh brow look we all desire a touch up is suggested every 9-12 months.

+ WHEN CAN I GET MY BROW/LIP TOUCH UP?

We cannot do a touch up any earlier than 4 weeks as we have to wait for the skin to fully heal.

WE DO NOT DO TATTOO TOUCH UPS ON CLIENTS WHO HAVE HAD PREVIOUS TATTOOING DONE ELSEWHERE UNLESS THEY HAVE SENT US PHOTOS AND WE HAVE AGREED TO CORRECT IT. CORRECTION WORK IS MORE DIFFICULT FOR US TO DO AND CANNOT ALWAYS BE DONE, THEREFORE IT WOULD NOT COST THE SAME AS A STANDARD TOUCH UP

+ IS A COSMETIC TATOO PAINFUL?

As it is a cosmetic tattoo, unfortunately it does not come pain-free. We do try to reduce the pain as much as possible by applying two different anaesthetics. Everyones pain threshold is different and it is important to note that some clients may experience slight discomfort and a stinging sensation, although, for others it may be quite painful.

+ IS IT OKAY TO WEAR MAKEUP AFTER MY TATTOO?

Wearing makeup around your brows for the first 2 weeks is not recommended. The skin should be kept completely clean until the scabbing/flaking has finished. As for lips, we do not recommend wearing any lipstick for the first 7-10 days.

+ WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE THE SHAPE?

After the measuring and drawing the brow/lip outline, you have the opportunity to look and make sure you are happy with the shape and if there is anything you would like change before the tattooing begins. Please note the shape drawn before the tattoo will appear thicker than how they actually turn out.

+ WHERE CAN I SEE SAMPLES OF YOUR WORK?

Visit our Instagram page @kootsbykath, which showcases recent work with our clients.

+ HOW DO I START IPL & WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

The process here at KOOTS is simple. First things first, book your FREE consultation and patch test. The purpose of a patch test is to determine what setting best suits you so that we can go into your first treatment knowing that we aren't taking any unnecessary risks and that we are using the best settings for your skin type, hair type etc. Please shave a small patch on the areas you'd like treatment on. The purpose of this is too explain the process, ensure you are 100% comfortable and answer any questions you may have.

A patch test is always required regardless if you have received IPL before.

+ HOW MANY SESSIONS OF IPL WILL I NEED?

This varies from person to person, however, on average usually 6 - 8 sessions are needed for hair removal.

+ DOES IPL HURT?

Usually, you will feel a slight discomfort during your treatment. Some clients find that it can be quite uncomfortable and others find it an absolute breeze. FREE consultation and patch test will let you see for yourself.

+ WHAT IS INVOLVED WITH YOUR GROUP MAKEUP LESSONS?

Here at KOOTS we like to keep these makeup lessons as fun, laid back and as informative as we can. When you come for a group lesson, we want you to feel like you are having a girls night in with your best friends. This includes the necessities such as wine (ID will be required) and nibbles....pyjamas are always welcome, in fact, they're encouraged. We all want to be comfy, right?

+ ARE YOUR MAKEUP LESSONS FOR MAKEUP ARTISTS ONLY OR FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE?

Both!! We absolutely LOVE when clients come in and don't have a clue where to start because that's why KOOTS introduced these lessons in the first place. We have all started somewhere, trust me us on that. We find it so rewarding to see a client walk out feeling confident on how to paint their face all on their own. Whether it's for your every day makeup or for special occasions, we've got you covered and will cater to what you're wanting to learn.
