Permanent Makeup For The Brows
Our technique is so gentle that it’s almost painless! In fact, it is very common for busy moms to fall asleep during the treatment. Topical anesthetic may be applied to ensure that you are comfortable.
Brows typically take 2-3 hours.
Each individual is different however brows can last 1-3 years or more before needing a color boost.
Permanent Makeup is typically a two step process that requires two sessions to complete your desired look while very few people will only need one session. Color Boosts are recommended every 1-3 years to refresh their look.
It’s extremely important to do your research when searching for a permanent makeup artist. You want to make sure the artist is licensed and insured and you want to take a deep dive into their portfolio. Every artist has their own technique and you want to make sure that their style compliments the look that you are trying to achieve.
You must refrain from sweating and working out for about 7-10 days or until fully healed.
There are a few things you must avoid before your treatment such as avoid alcohol, caffeine, energy drinks, and green smoothies 24hrs before. Not following these instructions may result in less than desirable results and will cause bleeding making it difficult for your artist to work. For a full list of precare instructions please visit the precare page on our website.
Microblading is best for those with normal/dry skin types and those who have a good amount of existing eyebrow hair. This service is not recommended for those with oily skin. Other options are available for this skin type.
Combo brows are a combination of hair strokes and ombré/powder shading. This technique is great for those who have sparse areas on their brows that need to be filled in while still having the hair stroke look at the fronts.
Powder Brows creates tiny pixelated dots of pigment to fill in your eyebrow shape. This technique can give you soft natural results or a filled in look as if you were to use a brow pencil or a shadow to do your brows.
Ombré means the fronts of the brows will be lighter and the body and tail of the brows will be darker.
We have a thorough consultation during your appointment to discuss what technique is best for you based on your preferences and current condition of your brows. In person consultations are available upon request.
Pigment choice will be based on factors such as hair color, skin undertones, and personal preference.
A color correction is when the brows are too cool or too warm in appearance and the color needs to be neutralized. For example, if the brows present colors such as red, grey, blue, green, or purple a color correction will be needed.
To inquire please send photos of your bare brows in good lighting to email@example.com
Those with existing work must get approval before scheduling an appointment.
The best way to determine which skin care treatment is best for you is to schedule a consultation with us. We will assess your skin type and conditions, discuss your concerns and goals, and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
Yes, as an esthetician, I can perform a thorough skin analysis to assess your skin type and any concerns you may have. Based on the analysis, I can recommend the appropriate treatment(s) and/or products that will be most beneficial for your skin.
Yes, there are various treatments available to help reduce the appearance of acne scars, including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and laser therapy. However, the effectiveness of the treatment will depend on the severity and type of acne scars. It is best to consult with a licensed esthetician or dermatologist to determine the best course of treatment for your specific acne scars.
Facials can vary widely in terms of the products and techniques used. Some facials focus on deep cleansing, while others are designed to address specific concerns like acne, aging, or hyperpigmentation. Some of the most common types of facials include classic facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning.
The best facial for your skin type depends on your specific skin concerns and needs. During a consultation, I will assess your skin type and condition, discuss your goals, and recommend the appropriate facial treatment to help you achieve your desired results.
It is generally recommended to get a facial every 4-6 weeks to maintain healthy skin and address any concerns. However, the frequency of your facials may depend on your skin type, condition, and lifestyle factors. During your consultation, we can determine a schedule that works best for you.
Yes, it is safe to get a facial while pregnant. However, certain treatments and products may not be suitable during pregnancy, such as chemical peels and some types of exfoliants. I can recommend pregnancy-safe treatments and products that will be safe for both you and your baby.
There are several treatments and products that can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including facials with anti-aging ingredients, such as vitamin C and retinoids, as well as treatments like microchanneling and microdermabrasion. It is important to discuss your goals with me during a consultation so we can determine the best course of action for your skin.
Microchanneling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a specialized device to create tiny channels in the skin’s surface. These channels stimulate the natural healing process, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
The number of treatments needed for optimal results may vary depending on your individual needs and goals. In general, most clients see significant improvement after a series of 3-6 treatments, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. However, some may require additional treatments for more significant concerns.
During your initial consultation, we’ll assess your skin and discuss a personalized treatment plan that will include the recommended number of sessions based on your unique skin condition and desired outcome. Our goal is to help you achieve the best possible results, and we’ll work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan that meets your individual needs.
