WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

 

Microblading is a form of semi permanent makeup also known as eyebrow embroidery, micro stroking, feather touch or micropigmentation. Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing which is performed using a machine, microblading is done with a manual, handheld tool with attached needles that are fused together in a linear grouping. These very fine needles deposit pigment into the epidermis, replicating hair by following the natural growth of your hair, giving you a flawless, fuller brow.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

 

Microblading can last anywhere from 10 months to 3 years depending on your skin type, activities and aftercare. Oilier clients may not hold onto the pigment as well. Everyone will respond to the procedure differently, we cannot guarantee your results.

HOW IS THE SHAPE/COLOR DECIDED?

 

In most cases we can discuss this at your first appointment. If you would feel more comfortable you may send me a photo of your brows prior to the appointment and we may discuss your questions/concerns. You may show us a photo of how you fill them in that way we can see what you like, but also assess what needs work and what does not need work along with your skin’s undertone. We will draw a shape onto your brows and we will choose the color together before the procedure starts. If needed, we will clean up the brows outside of the outline we choose however, if you normally get them waxed, threaded, etc, please do so before your appointment.

 

WHY DO I NEED TWO APPOINTMENTS?

 

When you leave your appointment, your brows will look very bold and MUCH darker than they will end up. Throughout the week the color will fade drastically. Some customers may like that, while others prefer a more bold, structured look. It may appear at times that the pigment vanished-be patient. You may heal "spotty" the first time. The second appointment we assess the color, re-evaluate how your skin is reacting to the pigment and make any changes necessary. Additional touch up appointments may be necessary for customers with very oily skin, problematic skin, darker pigmentation or customers that did not follow after care procedures correctly (see "after care"). Microblading requires a minimum of two appointments.

Lip Blush FAQs

 

What is Lip Blush?

This is not your traditional permanent lip tattoo. We like to keep it soft and natural but still vibrant enough you don't feel the need to wear lipstick.

 

Does it hurt?

Everyone is different. Each client will swell differently and will have a different pain threshold, but most say they experienced little to no pain. Numbing cream/gel is used prior and during the procedure.

How long does it last?

We estimate Lip Blush lasting around 3-5 years. Our lips exfoliate faster than almost any other place on our body so it can vary for each person.

 

How do I prepare for this appointment?

YOU MUST BE ON AN ANTI VIRAL MEDICATION (VALTREX) 3 DAYS PRIOR AND THE FOLLOWING DAYS AFTER(a 7 day supply) to prevent a coldsore/fever blister outbreak IF you are prone to them. Please consult with your doctor to obtain this prescription.

 If you are unable to obtain this medication you can take L-Lysine (over the counter) 1 week before set appointment and 1 week after. It is important to arrive to this appointment makeup free....it can get a little messy.

How long is the healing process?

The healing time is very minimal, up to a week at most. Over the first few days your lips will feel very dry/chapped and very dark in color, around the 3rd-4th day they will start peeling. This normally only last 1-2 days. After your lips have healed they will be lighter in color about 40% resulting in a gorgeous flush.
