These days everyone is on the look-out for a bargain. People are prepared to pay rock bottom prices for cosmetic procedures, even procedures that are to be carried out on their faces like permanent makeup. In some cases the potential client has done no research into the background of the technician performing it. So many times you hear about these cheap treatments resulting in a bodge result, or leaving people with permanent scarring to their bodies. Why would you risk this, especially to your face? Pay cheap, Pay twice or maybe pay 10 times more? A bad procedure could mean paying for laser removal which doesn’t always remove all of the pigment. You will then need to find an experienced artist to go over the removed area which isn’t as easy as going in from scratch.
Have a look here for examples of when Permanent Makeup goes wrong as to why choosing your permanent makeup technician/artist is so is important.
Often than not there are a few reasons why prices are dropped. It may be worth bearing in mind or questioning next time you see places offering bargain basement prices. Why has a technician lowered their price? Usually to attract more customers, of course there is nothing wrong with that if they are newly qualified and wanting to build-up their portfolio. However, it is important to check the quality of the work at this stage, who they trained with and how long they have been qualified and insured.
The best permanent makeup techs in the industry usually have a fee that is priced according to their skills , reputation and location. They normally have a waiting list of clients wanting to be booked in with them as they know they will be getting a first class treatment and service.

All that said, it doesn’t mean that someone charging top prices will guarantee good results. Have a look at previous work and do those background checks. Look around to get an idea of what the professionals are charging. Ask those important questions. What skills do they have, have they trained to advanced or para medical level, who they trained with, how long has the technician been performing permanent makeup procedures, are they insured and licensed (can they prove this), how often do they update their skills, is their infection control certification up to date, ask to see the photos of permanent makeup brows, lip and eyeliners. A good artist will answer these questions and will be happy to answer any other queries you have about having a procedure and post procedure. Tracy always offers new clients the opportunity to speak to her past clients and view her testimonials. In fact she encourages clients to come for a consultation before they commit to having a procedure.
Happy exploring and do not hesitate to contact Tracy for any advice.
