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

Ombre/Powder Brows $475

Aftercare Instructions for microblading
Following the procedure you’ll need to wipe your brows with distilled/bottled every hour & apply a THIN coat of aftercare balm until bedtime. This wipes away any dried blood/fluids, or pigment left behind from your procedure.
Before bed wash your eyebrows with a gentle cleanser (no acids/exfoliants. roccomended: obviously a cleanser from Ideal Skin, Dial anti-bacterial soap, Nuetrogena fragrance free facial wash/bar) and apply a thin layer of aftercare balm.
Day 2-10. Be very sparing with aftercare products as they will not allow your skin to breathe and can cause feather strokes to come off prematurely.
DO NOT pick or pull any flaking/scabbing that may occur.
Do not apply any make-up, lotions or creams…only a thin layer of aftercare 1-2 x per day.
Do not immerse your brows in water or in the shower stream. You may cleanse everyother day using minimal water, at the sink, not in the shower. Limit showers to 5 minutes as the steam can pull pigment.
Day 11 and beyond. After 10 days you may resume normal activities. Don’t be afraid if dry skin falls from the eyebrows, this is normal and color under the skin will get darker and more noticeable after a few days.
Some of the hair strokes may come off, this is why your touch up is essential.
Microblading is a 2 step process, touch ups need to scheduled 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. At which time the strokes and color may be tweaked to perfection.
Please refrain from: *Swimming, sauna or jacuzzi for at least 10 days.
*Long, hot, steamy showers for the complete healing process.
*Lasers, peels, or product containing vitamin A (Retin-A/retinol) or glycol acid over the healed or non-healed eyebrows, this will cause the pigment to fade or other negative effects.
*Picking, peeling, or scratching as this could cause scarring or removal of color.
*Touching your eyebrows other than cleansing and applying balm. Doing so with unwashed hands can easily cause a secondary infection.
*Heavy cleaning.(i.e. basement or garage where the is a lot of airborne debris).
The healing process. Immediately following your procedure and for a few days thereafter your eyebrows may feel tender. your new tattoo will go through several different phases which is very dark, too light, and then just right!
The color will appear very sharp and dark after your procedure and a few days after. This is because the color is sitting on top of the skin, and the skin has not yet healed over the pigment. The color will soften as it is filtered through the skin, over the course of days and weeks. When applying aftercare balm do not be alarmed if you see pigment on your cotton swab, this is normal and is simply excess pigment and body fluids. Once the skin starts to heal, flaking will begin which may resemble dandruff flakes and dry skin. This can cause your tattoo to appear light in color, do not be alarmed, this will stop once healed and is a superficial part of the healing process. Your tattoo may itch or feel tight at times, also normal. Once healed always keep a light coat of sunblock on your new eyebrow tattoo to ensure the color does not fade.
