Microblading vs. Machine brows…types of eyebrow tattoos.

I am now offering different types of eyebrow permanent makeup, microblading, digital/machine feather stroke brows & ombre/powder brows/

Microblading  $450

During a Microblading treatment hairstrokes are meticulously hand “drawn” into the epidermal layer of the skin using a hand tool and pigment. The hand tool is dipped into pigment and then delicately grazed into the skin. The treatment is still considered a tattoo because the pigment is implanted into the skin but the use of a hand tool and not a machine means that the results are less accurate, giving  realistic hair-like strokes which can mimic the flow of a natural brow.

The results of a Microblading treatment are a very natural “fluffy” look which is great for filling in gaps, extending the brow or creating brows where hair has been lost through over plucking or conditions such as Alopecia.

Every clients skin retains pigment very differently, the healing process affects the longevity of the treatment, I personally feel microblading is more traumatic to the skin and as a result the skin heals and the strokes fade quicker than digital machine techniques. This however works well for someone who may be nervous about having permanent makeup and is unsure as to whether they will like it. If a client is uncertain I would recommend Microblading over digital as it fades quicker.

Microblading also suits very fair skinned, fair haired clients with baby fine hair, who want very natural looking results.

I can however create more dramatic brows and build colour by adding shading with a 19 pin shader handtool.

After the first treatment and 6-8 week perfecting session, I would recommend a color boost appointment at around 10-18 months.

Digital /Machine Hair Stroke Brows$475 ($250 through 9/25)

Digital Hair Stroke Brows are created using a cosmetic tattooing machine with a tiny needle which injects pigment into the skin.  The pigment is implanted much closer to the surface of the skin than in a traditional tattooing, also the pigment used in cosmetic tattooing is totally different to those used in body tattooing.

I find the digital hair stroke technique to be much traumatic to the skin.   it can, and can take longer than Microblading as you have to work very slowly to ensure the pigment is implanted accurately.

I can still create natural hair strokes with digital technique using tiny 1 point needles or Nano needles, but I can also add depth and strength easily

Results can vary from dramatic looks, mimicking the look of makeup or individual hair strokes for a subtler more natural look.

Digital hair stroke brows tend to retain pigment and last longer in the skin than microblading, after the initial treatment and perfecting session I recommend a color boost at around 18-24months.

Ombre/powder brows $475 ($250 through 9/25)

A small tattoo pen is used for Ombre Brow Tattooing to create natural looking brows. The technique is used when the client would prefer a powder filled brow look, similar to applying brow powder makeup.The pigment is lighter at the start of the brow, and gradually gets darker on the tail, which is why the technique is called Ombre Tattooing.

Botched brow tattoos & Correction/cover-up

With brows being all the rage this year as are the number of people embarking on a career in microblading and other forms of eyebrow permanent makeup.  I have seen the results of a few ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ eyebrow studios. There are many qualified, experienced and properly trained artists…unfortunately there are just as many not so qualified, licensed, insured and approved ‘artists’.  Many of whom have a tattoo license (which is easily obtained in KY) to show however the studio they are working from is not, hence not inspected by the health department. Some are even self-taught and have received no formal training.  Its important to see an artists portfolio, most are available online, training certificate as well as a blood borne pathogen certificate (not required in KY!!!)

Botched eyebrows may not ever be perfect (without painful, expensive laser removal treatments) however they can be improved with 3 or 4 sessions.  The first being shape and color correction which may or may not cover the old tattoo, a session to add hair strokes and a perfecting session.  The number of sessions and the desired result cannot be 100% guaranteed when dealing with older tattoo work, there are many variables including the age, shape, color, depth and scar tissue from the previous work.  Also if it was created with pigments or tattoo ink.  Brows which are uneven or have incorrect placement will determine the shape and size of new eyebrows.  All of which will be assessed at a complimentary consultation.

Below are a few examples of corrective work, some of the original tattoos were done using a stencil which is in no way tailored to the clients natural brows or face shape.  Anyone can create a beautiful or horrible eyebrow however it is important to check credentials and not bargain shop.  It is a tattoo…ON YOUR FACE!!  Choose your artist wisely.  I will continually learn and attend training and classes to perfect my art however here are my current training credentials ..more to come ( I will be attending extensive training by industry leaders in Los Angeles in  July 2018.

Introducing DMK paramedical skincare

After much deliberation I’ve decided to PHASE OUT PCA SKIN. I adore the company, products & training I’ve effectuated the last 7 years however they’ve sold to a commercial company along with Elta MD. Hopefully Colgate will continue the standards and integrity of both of these phenomenal cosmecuitical skincare lines.
Everything is currently in stock at last years prices & I will continue to carry the most effective/popular products. Please contact me with products you love & I will happily order them. If you’re on a regimen for a skin condition I will definitely keep those products available to you as long as you’d like. Im also happy to help you transition to Rhonda Allison Or DMK paramedical skincare.
I am genuinely excited to offer DMK paramedical skincare & treatments. DMK offers world renowned treatments(i.e. the enzyme & oxygen treatment I’ve been featuring) which actually change the integrity of the skin. Check them out if you are interested in making some serious skin improvements!

Enzyme & Oxygen Treatment

This treatment cleans, oxygenates, strengthens & tightens the skin. Working from the inside out enzymes in the treatment and in the skin are activated creating cell mitochondria (energy within the cells for duplication.) promoting collagen production, oxygenation & muscle contraction for intense firming & tightening. There is no other treatment in the world will give this effect.

The 80 minute treatment is offered at an introductory price of $140, or $185 with 2-3 months of home care products.

Restores skin to its peak condition….the only treatment to utilise the beneficial effects of transfer messenger enzymes. Enzymes are living substances that regulate health and work with minerals in the body to form a natural system of antioxidants to fight corrosive free radicals. Properly formulated, they remove dead protein, toxins and other effluvia from the epidermis using a process called ‘reverse osmosis’.

Where some cosmetic facial treatments may act only on skins surface, the Enzyme & Oxygen Treatment works with the skin. The enzymes aim to strengthen the structural integrity of the skin to create a healthy environment for cells to live and thrive in.

Enzyme Therapy exercises facial muscles and works to leave the skin feeling firm.
