Frequently asked questions
Before your appointment
I specialize in proper eyebrow shaping based on facial structure and dimensions. Before the procedure I will consult with you on your desired shape and color. We will use various brow measurement shaping tools to get the shape you love. I will NOT start the procedure until you approve the shape.
You can come in with makeup on. Prior to procedure make up will be removed in areas that will treated
No waxing or tinting brows 3 days before
Do not drink caffeine or alcohol within 24 hours prior/after to treatment
Do not take asprin, ibuprofen, Niacin, Vitamin E or other NSAIDs that could thin your blood 2 days prior/after treatment
You will sign a waiver at your appointment stating that this advise has been followed.
Please feel free to bring pictures of your dream brows or of yourself with your brows filled in so I get an idea of what you like.
After Care Instructions
Proper care during the healing process will result in better pigmentation. Everyones skin heals differently and is a two step process. Results vary depending on skin type, amount of brow hairs, previous tattoo, lifestyle, and of course aftercare. It will typically take 7-10 days for brows to heal and true color will appear once the scabs have exfoliated naturally. Pigment will fade 30%-40% lighter. Full natural results will appear after your complimentary touchup.
During the healing process, please AVOID the following:
-Application of any brow makeup for 10 days
-Scratching or removal of scabs or dry skin, let skin exfoliate naturally. Minimal scabbing flaking and dryness of the skin is normal after the first few days of the healing period. Removing prematurely will cause loss of pigment.
-Activities that will cause sweating for 10 days.
-Laser light therapy (can darken/lighten or distort pigment)
-Tanning beds and sun exposure. When out in the sun for long periods of time wear a hat and sunglasses. (excess sun exposure and or tanning can cause premature fading)
-Exfoliates, retinol acids or AHA's on the area for 30 days after the appointment (causes premature fading)
-Massages, facials or skin treatments
-Laying on your face
What is Microblading and Ombre Brows?
Fine strokes are implanted to the epidermis of the skin using a handheld tool to create a hair like finish. The appearance is completely natural looking and blends with or without hair along the brow bone. It can typically last up to 1 year.
It is another type of semi-permanent makeup, using a rotary pen with a single prong needle to insert pigment into the epidmeris and the dermis of the skin. This creates a misty, powder filled brow similar to the look of makeup. Ombre appears light at the start of the eyebrow then gradually darker towards the tail end of the brow. Heals to a soft and natural color. It can typically last up to 3 years.
Semi-Permanent Makeup is NOT recommended on clients who are or have:
-Under the age of 18 (letter of consent is required from parent/gaurdian)
-Pregnant and/or nursing (as a precaution, we do not perform any cosmetic tattooing)
-Currently sick (cold, flu, etc) or taking antibiotics.
-Irritations of the skin of any kind on the area of the procedure (pimples, rash, psoriosis, eczema, rosacea, sunburn)
-Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult with your doctor)
-Had an organ transplant
-A Pacemaker or major heart problems
