No, your eyes are closed during the entire procedure, although there are frequent short breaks of a minute or two throughout the procedure so you can relax. These breaks also enable the technician to precisely calibrate the application for how it looks with your eyes open. The eyeliner procedure is safe, with a 100% safety record with thousands of satisfied MicroArt clients treated.
