FAQS

Microblading 

 

Who should get permanent brows and who is a good candidate for this?

Framing and balancing the face a well-designed and groomed brow can instantly give lift and emphasis to the eyes giving a more youthful appearance. Various concerns such as sparse, thin, or naturally very light eyebrows can be addressed by adding fullness and definition without compromising a natural look. This procedure can mimic the appearance of hair in the brow or shadow.

Anyone who desires more fullness of the brows will love this procedure and the time saved not applying make-up. Those who used to apply brow pencil can go swimming, sweat, or wipe your forehead without the embarrassment of losing their eyebrows. Alopecia sufferers are pleasantly surprised at how natural it looks. Most brow procedures require at least one touch up.

This amazing eyebrow treatment suits people who have an unflattering brow shape, have over tweezed or waxed, lack of hair do to prescriptions or chemotherapy, always had or are getting sparse areas in their brows that won’t grow back or just what to define and enhance their brow.

What is Microblading anyway?

 

Hair by Hair” brows (also called 3D, HD, and feather brows) - Microblading is using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the skin. It's more superficial than tattooing and with the color closer to the surface of the skin the strokes imitating eyebrow hair appear crisp and extremely fine, perfectly mimicking real hair.  Getting MicroBrows is the best way to put the finest hairs back into eyebrows, providing the sharpest and most realistic definition and dimension possible.

What is Organic Microblading?

 

Organic pigments are natural, safe, and reliable. The organic inks are made from original formulas that reflect light, leaving a soft appearance that blends naturally with the skin. These inks are known for their stability, longevity, and reliability. The organic inks are healthier and safer for the body and skin. Applying these inks to the skin, creates a natural shadow of color that allows her to accentuate the features of the face. Organic derived pigment is completely vegan safe.

What are Hybrid Brows?

 

A combination of Microblading and Powder fill.

Pros: The combination of microblading hair strokes and a powder fill gives an incredibly natural looking brow. It's a bit more defined and filled in than just straight microbladed brows, and a bit less solid and dramatic than the ombre powder fill.

 

Cons: The hybrid brow costs slightly more than the other two methods, but only slightly.

Who is it best for: I really adore this technique for everyone to be honest. All brows are customized specifically for each individual client based on your desired look, skin type, coloring, bone structure etc. There are no two clients with the same brow design.

How long does it last?

 

Microblading procedure lasts about 18 months.  Permanent make up is "semi", and client results will vary. Commonly you will need a touchup at 1-2 years. Generally, the results are amazing, but it very much depends on your own skin type, texture, and oiliness.

After care must be taken seriously!

How long does the procedure take?

 

Your MicroBrows are broken up into two appointments - the first appointment and then

4 to 6 weeks later, a perfecting session.

First Treatment
 

Please allow up to 3.5 hours for your first microblading appointment to be completed.

Most of this time is spent waiting for numbing to take effect and measuring and balancing the brows and working together to get the best final shape. The tattooing itself is quite quick.

Before pictures will be taken and we will chat about your desired look, color, and shape. Your brows will be shaped, measured, and balanced with markings to determine the desired look. After the template is created, the tattooing begins. Your brow may be a little tender to start with, but once the process is underway, a numbing gel will be applied. Most clients feel very little after a couple rounds of numbing gel.

Once finished with the tattooing, you will discuss aftercare, and photos will be taken to compare

your pre and post procedure.

Perfecting Session
 

Your perfecting session will take place in 4-6 weeks of your initial procedure. The time between appointments gives the skin time to heal and let the color settle. The second appointment will not take as long. Your skin will be analyzed to determine how it has held the pigment and if any adjustments to color or shape are needed. This appointment is all about the perfecting of your new brows. Because everyone’s skin heals differently with different results the same amount of time will be scheduled for this session.

Your perfecting session cannot exceed 60 days from your first procedure date or you will

be charged a fee of $250.

How long does healing take?

 

Healing usually takes about a week. However, please allow a few days if you have an event or special occasion coming up. Your new permanent eyebrow will go through several phases during the healing cycle.  The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin and has not yet settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually, and you may see some pigment on your towel after washing your face, or on your pillowcase - do not be alarmed. Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, the MicroBrows will look like they have dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly; however, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. After a couple days, this will subside. Don’t pluck or scratch.

Does it hurt?

 

Pain may vary. Numbing cream and gel are used liberally throughout the procedure and it is more uncomfortable than painful. Topical anesthetic works great for most people.

How long does Microblading last?

 

Everyone’s skin is different, so it greatly depends on your skin composition and your healing process. No guarantee can be made that a specific client will benefit the same as another from this procedure. Microblading implant pigment into the basal layer of the epidermis; it is a form of cosmetic tattooing, using fine, delicate strokes to make the brow look as natural as possible.  Other factors that play a role in longevity are skin color, the pigment used, thickness of the lines, and mostly how aggressive your immune system is in metabolizing the pigment.  Factors such as sun exposure, BOTOX, AHA’s (lactic, glycolic, citric, retinoic and tartaric acids) or any OTC creams and lotions for tone correcting, anti-aging, exfoliating, or lightening the skin can cause your MicroBrows to fade.

How do you choose a color?

 

Using your skin’s undertones, the best natural color will be chosen. All skin undertones are different, so there is no “one size fits all” makeup system. 

Can I get MicroBrows if I am pregnant?

 

No, you cannot have this treatment done if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Who is not ideal for this procedure?

 

Someone with severely oily skin. (Pigment will look more solid than like hair strokes)

Someone with diabetes type 1 or 2 (Prone to slow healing and infection) can discuss further if it’s under control. Someone who has Thyroid/Graves' disease (Medication may cause pigment to not retain properly)

Someone pregnant or nursing.

What do I need to do before my Microblading treatment?

 

Stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E or prescription blood thinners 72 hours before procedure.

Take a non-aspirin pain reliever 30 minutes before.

Discontinue Retin A skin care products close to the brow area two weeks prior and after your procedure.

Discontinue use of AHA skin care products close to the brow area one week prior to your procedure.

No waxing, tweezing, plucking, trimming, laser or electrolysis several weeks prior to procedure.

No caffeine or working out the morning of your procedure.

Avoid alcoholic beverages within 48 hours of procedure.

And no Botox or fillers within 2 weeks before your procedure.

What about after my treatment?

 

Aftercare will be discussed at your appointment, and you will leave with a complementary post-op bag with instructions and everything you need. Although you will not need to take time off from work, you should keep your recovery period and after care in mind when scheduling your procedure appointments around work, social, or travel plans.

Lashes

 

How long do eyelash extensions last?

 

With regular fills (touch-ups), your eyelash extensions can last for years. On average, 

a person will shed 25% of their natural lashes every 2 weeks. How often you need a fill depends on how well you take care of your lashes, your natural cycle of hair growth, and how full you desire your lashes to be, so a fill is recommended every 2-4 weeks to keep lashes looking full.

Will they damage my natural lashes?

 

If done properly, there will be no damage to your natural lash. If you pick and pull them out before they shed on their own, there will be damage. If a stylist places lashes that are too long or too thick for your natural lash, this can also cause damage, known as “traction alopecia”.

How long will the process take?

 

Depending on the look you desire, a full set of lashes take between 1 hour, up to 3 hours (for 6D, the maximum amount of lashes you can get). On average, your initial appointment will be booked for 1.5-3 hours so you can complete the necessary paperwork and have a consultation with your stylist before the application of the lashes.

 

 

Does it hurt to get lashes?

 

Definitely not! In fact, the experience is quite enjoyable and comfortable! You are placed on a massage bed. Your eyes are closed throughout the entire process, while relaxing music plays in the background.

How do I take care of them?

 

Please avoid any waterproof mascara or liquid eyeliner, and oil-based products around your eye area, this includes make-up remover, cleanser, sunscreen, and eye creams. These will break down the adhesive and the extensions will fall off prematurely, costing you more money in maintenance. Avoid rubbing or excessive touching of the lashes, as well as sleeping on your face. For regular maintenance, you are provided with a comb to gently brush the lashes out. You will need a fill every 2-4 weeks to keep them full.

What are the different kinds of eyelash enhancements and what is the difference between them?

To answer this question, we have put together a comparison chart: 

Strip/False Lashes:

 

Bought at drug or beauty stores, these are lashes arranged on a single strip that you apply to your eyelid. They are very temporary, and often not natural in appearance. Great for a dramatic change in lash look for special events, not recommended for everyday wear as the glue does not wash off very well which can leave a residue behind, and they can be damaging to the natural lash or irritating to the eyelid if worn for long periods of time or incorrectly.

Flare/Cluster Lashes:

 

These can be purchased at a drugstore or applied by a professional. They come in clusters or single lashes: don’t be mistaken, these ARE NOT eyelash extensions. Glued to the base of several lashes, they are very damaging and not recommended for any occasion. They are quite inexpensive to have applied, but the fumes from the glue are quite irritating to the eye. They are also very “fake” looking, and not very customizable, as they only come in a few different lengths.

Semi-Permanent Eyelash Extensions:

 

Called “semi-permanent” because they can last up to the time the natural lash sheds, these

extensions are applied to one natural eyelash only. These come in two different styles, Classic and Volume. Classic-applied 1 LE (lash extension) to 1 NL (natural lash). These are very customizable and when done by a trained and experienced lash technician, will not cause damage. Up to 100 LPE (lash extensions per eye) can be applied.

Volume-a new technique originating in Russia, extensions weighing only a fraction of what

classic extensions weigh are applied in groups of 2-6 LE per NL. This creates a beautiful soft, natural, and full look without causing damage. Up to 750 LPE can be applied!

What is your cancellation policy?

 

A 48-hour notice is required to cancel/reschedule appointments. Any appointments canceled or rescheduled within 48 hours of the appointment will be charged half the value of the service, or the full deposit. Any appointments missed completely with no notice will be charged the full value. We may require full payment upfront when booking future appointments.

 

Method of Payments Accepted

 

Cash, Zelle, Cash App, Debit, Square and all major credit cards.
