What Is Semi- Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing?
Microblading ,Is A Semi- Permanent Form Of Cosmetic Tattooing, Using A Manual Hand Tool, Creating A Pattern Of Hair Like Strokes Mimicking Your Brows Natural Growth Pattern, While Simultaneously Implanting Pigment. This Is A Very Natural-No Makeup Look Once Healed And Works Better For Brows With More Hair And Non Oily Skin Types.
Microblading + Shading, Our Most Popular Option! Great For Almost All Skin Types And Will Give Longer Lasting Results Than Microblading Alone.
Ombre Powder Brows, For This Method I Use A Machine With A Fine, Single Needle To Create A Fuller, Powdered In Look (No Strokes). Ombre Powder Brows Do Last Longer Than Microblading And Is More Gentle On The Skin. This Technique Is Perfect For Almost All Skin Types. Wake Up With Makeup!
All 3 techniques are a two-step process, you will come back 6 weeks later for your perfecting session.
How Long Does It Last? It can last 6-18 months depending on technique, it also varies based on the client’s skin type, lifestyle and how they care for their brows after the procedure.
How Do I Know Which Technique Is For Me? This depends on a couple of things-what look you are wanting to achieve, your current eyebrows and your skin type and condition. I will always let you know what technique I think is best suited for you.
Does Cosmetic Tattooing Hurt? I use a topical Lidocaine, 99.5% of my clients feel very little to no pain, your brows will get tender towards the end of the procedure but it is very tolerable. I have actually had clients fall asleep!
Do you Wax my eyebrows before the procedure? I will not wax your eyebrows because I do not want to cause any excess trauma to the skin so I will tweeze and trim your brows. You are also more than welcome to get them cleaned up a few days prior to your appointment.
How long will my appointment take? The process usually takes about 2 hours, sometimes it will take me longer, so please plan on being at the salon for about 2.5 hours and not in a hurry.
How often to do I have to get my brows “touched up”? This will depend on your retention and how much you would like to keep up your eyebrows. Most clients come back annually . I do have some clients that like to keep there brows looking fresh earlier and come back around 6-8 months .
How Long does it take to heal? You'll be able to wear your new brows back to Lunch! In the first 7 days, you'll need to avoid getting them wet, working out or wearing brow makeup. It takes about 30 days to completely heal, during this you may experience mild flaking and peeling.
Can Microblading cover my permanent makeup? Often times I cannot. But if the previous permanent makeup has faded considerably, sometimes I can. Otherwise we will have to use a Combo or Ombre shading technique. A consultation is always required if you have had previous work from another artist.
Will this process ruin my natural eyebrow hair? No, I have actually seen clients eyebrows grow, due to stimulation. The Microblading process is superficial, I am working on the upper layers of the skin called the Epidermis, unlike a traditional tattoo that is deposited deep into the Dermis.
Can I get Cosmetic Tattooing while pregnant? Unfortunately no, this is the policy for most permanent makeup artists for liability reasons. The truth is there is very little medical research on cosmetic ink and pregnancy, also the use of different numbing agents.
