What is Microblading vs Microblading + Shading vs Ombré Powder Brows?
Microblading is a semi-permanent technique for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows. The eyebrows are enhanced by adding hair strokes behind the existing hairs. This technique will help add volume and help define your natural brows. The hair strokes are created with pigment, which is deposited into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, with a hand tool that is formed of tiny needles.
How do I book an appointment?
You can book through this website, if there are not any dates available for the service you would like to book for then I am completely booked up for that service.
How long does it take to heal?
The outer layer of skin where the scabbing and peeling occurs can take about 1-2 weeks. For the whole healing process, on average about 4-6 weeks. Others may take longer depending on the individuals' health.
Who is permanent makeup best for?
People who meet minimum age requirement and have the ability to heal properly from minor wounds can benefit from the liberating benefits of permanent makeup.
Does it hurt?
The pain is expected to be minimum to none. A topical anesthetic is used, therefore pain is minimized, but will vary amongst each individual.
Do I need a touch up?
A touch up is not required and varies. How the skin will react is different for everyone and many factors are to be taken into consideration. Skin type, age, scarring, diet, stress levels, facial products used, etc. all play a key role in your results, which is why it is important to know that more than one touch up may be required.
What can I do to prepare for the appointment?
Avoid caffeine, alcohol, and pain killers 24 hours prior to the appointment. These substances thin out the blood and heightens senses causing scarring and potentially can make the procedure more painful and will effect how your skin will hold the pigment.
After my first touch up, how often should I come in?
An annual touch up is recommended or as often as you desire. Again this is based on your personal preference.
Are you certified?
Yes, I am a licensed Cosmetologist and I attended a Colorado DPOS approved school to fulfill my 132 hours of permanent makeup training. I also have a bloodborne pathogens certificate and have received several advanced trainings.
How long does it last?
It will last as long as it’s maintained. How it lasts will vary on your skin type, by how well your skin takes in pigment during the session and how dark you are willing to go depending on the scenario. After a touch up, it is expected to last years depending on the shade of choice you prefer, skin retention, time in the sun and daily skin routines (more exfoliating products, will cause it to fade faster).
Do I need to take time off from work?
No. There’s no downtime associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
What is the process like?
We will start with taking before photos. Then, based on the procedure, I will predraw the shape and then once we agree on the shape, then I will get started. Once we have completed the procedure, I will take after pictures and go over after care instructions.
What if I don’t like it?
Although permanent makeup is considered to be semi-permanent, the procedure does allow flexibility for color or shape change to some extent.The appointment is very thorough to ensure that you are satisfied or comfortable with proceeding.
