Frequently Asked Qestions

Eyebrow microblading is the art of creating fuller thicker eyebrows through the use if a manual tattooing technique. The process involves the application of detailed, fine lines on the eyebrow area that effectively mimic the natural color and fine hairs that form the eyebrow. First, a series of ultra fine needles is used to make fine, microstroking incisions on the skin in a shape and form that has been predetermined by the microblading specialist and the client.

Who is a good candidate? The simple answer is anyone that wants to have full, beautiful brows all day, every day! That would include busy parents or business people who don’t have much time to apply brow make up, active people who don’t want to worry about sweating off makeup while working out or swimming, or any person who struggles with getting that perfect shape every time. Other clients include those suffering from scarring, Alopecia and Cancer, or other diseases and disorders that have led to natural hair loss.​​

NOT IDEAL FOR:

  • Individuals with oily skin and large pores – pigment has a harder time retaining
  • Individuals with previous permanent makeup
  • Individuals who have used retinoids within the last 2 weeks
  • Individuals who have had deep chemical or laser peels within the last 6 weeks
  • Individuals who have had Botox within the last 2 weeks
  • Individuals on blood thinners – excess bleeding can cause the pigment to not retain (may receive a note from doctor to stop blood thinners for a period of time prior to service)

    CONTRAINDICATIONS (Depending on severity of medical condition, some individuals may still be able to have the procedure with a note from their doctor):

  • Individuals with diabetes type 1 or 2
  • Individuals with thyroid disease
  • Individuals with auto-immune diseases
  • Individuals with high risk of infection or slow healing time due to any medical condition
  • Individuals currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiation
  • If you are pregnant or nursing

Microblading is a two-step process, at least 4-6 weeks apart. Final results won’t be seen until after the touch up appointment. With most procedures, the color looks dramatically lighter after the first week. Some clients prefer this, while others are looking for a bolder look. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, don’t worry! We can always go darker and add more density at your next appointment.

TO PREPARE FOR SERVICE:

  • Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks on the day pf treatment.
  • Do not take aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before treatment,
  • Do not take omega3 (fish oil) 1 week before treament.
  • Do not tan or have intense sun exposure 3 days before treatment.
  • No waxing 2-3 days before treatment.
  • No chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser or any other intense treatments 2 weeks before treatment.

Saline tattoo removal involves tattooing a specialized saline solution over your existing tattoo. The solution lifts the existing pigment molecules from the skin by the process of osmosis. A scab will form, which further lifts the previously placed pigment. The number of sessions needed depends on the saturation and size of your tattoo.

Why Saline over Laser? Saline is an all-natural removal method, typically costs 30-50% less than laser tattoo removal, requires fewer sessions, and is less painful. It is also color-agnostic, so it works on all colors of ink. Saline is also gentler than laser and best suited for the delicate facial area.

This is completely dependent on the saturation of your current tattoo and your removal goals. Typical removal requires anywhere from 1-5 sessions, with 3-4 being the most common. Sessions are spaced 8 weeks apart.

Eyelash enhancement is the hottest new trend! Treatment designed to add extra definition to your eyes without an ”Eyeliner look”.  An ultra fine line of pigment is  placed between the lashes at the root to give the illusion of lashes that are thicker and darker resulting in a natural look.

Henna brows are a form of eyebrow tinting that is used to stain the skin beneath the brow hairs. The purpose of this is to cast a shadow or create an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any sparseness.

Henna is a natural dye made from a plant known as hina or the henna tree. The process for henna brows is very similar to henna coloring methods you may see in traditional Indian culture, however the shades have been specially formulated to cater for eyebrow tones.

Henna is a great option for those who are looking to “test drive’ permanent makeup before the commitment. Other’s enjoy having the latest eyebrow style trends without making the long term commitment.
