Frequently Asked Questions

What is Microblading?

Microblading (also referred to as Micropigmentation) is the process of manually implanting color pigment into the dermis, by means of tiny, sterile, disposable needles to produce the appearance of natural hair strokes.

What is Ombre Powder Brow?

Ombre Powder brow (also referred to as Microshading) is a form of permanent makeup that gives a similar effect to wearing powder or pencil on your brows.  The procedure is performed using a micro-pigmentation machine that involves fading the pigment so that the front of the brow is lighter and gradually darkens towards the tail of the brow, creating the more natural look that most people prefer. Powder relates to the technique of creating a soft, powdery fill by layering of tiny pixels. The results tend to last longer than microblading as the pigment is inserted deeper than the manual method of microblading and is best suited for individuals with oily skin or little to no brow hair.

What is the difference between microblading and Ombré Powder (Microshading)?

Microblading and Ombré Powder (Microshading) are two different methods of permanent makeup (PMU). 

Ombré Powder:

• Uses machine and tiny needle to scratch the surface of skin

• Creates a soft and powdery makeup look

• Involves minimal trauma to the skin

• Requires less touch ups to maintain

• Is suitable for all skin types

• Lasts 1-2 years before beginning to fade

Microblading:

• Uses hand tools with razor blade to cut incisions into the skin

• Mimics the appearance of hair strokes

• Involves more trauma to the skin than Microshading

• Requires more touch ups

• Is NOT suitable for all skin types, especially anyone with oily skin

• Begins to fade as soon as 6-12 months

What is Combination Brow?

Combination brow combines Microblading & Microshading with hair like strokes towards the front of the brow and shading towards the tail of the brow. This creates a very natural looking brow. Lasts about 1-2 years depending on skin type.

How old do I have to be to get tattooed?

You must be 18 years or older for permanent brows. Henna tint is available for any age.

Can I get tattooed if I am pregnant or nursing?

As a precaution, we do not perform cosmetic tattooing on pregnant or nursing women.

Does it hurt?

The discomfort is relative as everyone has a different level of sensitivity. As a client myself, I am very honest and transparent in disclosing that it IS a form of tattooing and therefore, can involve some pain and discomfort. Most of clients describe the pain level as mild and tolerable, many even fall asleep! It has often been compared to getting your brows threaded. Lidocaine is applied for numbing before and during the procedure. Every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the duration of the procedure.

Is it a Tattoo?

It is a cosmetic tattoo/ Body art however it is less invasive as the pigment is not placed as deep into the skin as a regular tattoo. It is semi-permanent meaning it fades over time, unlike a tattoo.

What numbing cream do you use?

I use Ultra Duration, which is a safe, highly effective and professional grade Topical Anesthetic. It consists of the following numbing ingredients: 4% Lidocaine, 2% Tetracaine, .05% Epinephrine.

Who is Microblading, Combo Brows and Powder Brows for?

Anyone who wants to wake up and go without the hassle of doing their brows everyday. For example: business people, travel nurses, etc. All genders are welcome!

Do I get to choose the shape?

Of course! Nothing gets shaded/tattooed until you approve the shape. During your initial appointment , a LOT of time will be spent on shaping, which includes measuring the brow bone structure and symmetry of your facial features. I will ask you to select your favorite shape (high arch, soft arch, straight, round, etc.) and to show me pictures of how you like your brows drawn in. I take all this into consideration, but I do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach to brows and will customize them to your individual needs. I am a trained expert in creating the best shape for each client according to their face and brow hair growth. Anything that deviates too much from your natural brows may be unrealistic. For example, if your brows are super straight and you’re asking for a very high arch, this may not be achievable.

Do my existing eyebrows need to be shaved off?

No, do not shave your eyebrows. The beginning of your service includes a full consultation, followed by shaping and a discussion about your preferred color. Your regular brow maintenance of tweezing, threading, waxing and/or tinting may continue once the brows have healed.

Do you use sterile needles?

Yes, a brand new sterile needle is used for every client. After each service, I dispose of the needle via the Department of Health Biomedical Waste guidelines.

Are the inks you use non-toxic and vegan?

Yes! I use Permablend pigments which is vegan, cruelty-free, non-toxic, sterile, and made in the USA.

How long does Microblading, Powder or Combo Brows last?

The pigment will fade over time and we recommend to get an Annual Touch-Up to keep them looking their best. There is no guarantee in how long it lasts as each individual has very different skin and lifestyle. 

What should I do to prep for my appointment?

Pre Care is so important to your results. The following are mandatory Pre Care requirements for all appointments:

• Discontinue the use of any retinol products 4 weeks before

• Avoid Botox or fillers 4 weeks before

• Avoid chemical peels, facials or skin treatments 4 weeks before

• Avoid waxing, threading, or plucking brow hairs so that I can see the way your brow hair grows

• Avoid sun exposure for 1 week before (if skin is sunburnt, tattooing is not recommended)

• No caffeine, alcohol or pain relievers 24 hours ahead (can cause bleeding and/or swelling)

• Exfoliate your skin before your first appointment to remove any dead skin or build up in the brow area, which will be very beneficial to the tattoo process

• Wash your hair the night before or day of, in order to prevent the need for washing hair after service and potentially wetting the brows

• Getting a good nights rest and hydrating with lots of water also helps your skin be its very best and assists with healing

• Avoid makeup on the day of your service, since I will be cleaning and wiping your skin throughout the procedure

• Avoid booking during the week of your menstrual cycle, since it is known to cause increased sensitivity

Will I really need a touch up in 4-6 weeks?

Not every client needs a Touch Up. If your brows heal to your desired results, you do not need the appointment! However, Powder Brows is a two-step process that typically does require 2 appointments to finish the process, ensure longevity and to "perfect" the brows. We will typically aim to go soft and lighter during the Initial Appointment to see how the skin heals, and then can add more saturation to get them darker and bolder in the Touch Up Appointment if desired. A majority of clients ask to go a shade or two darker during the Touch Up Appointment.

Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: skin type, pigment selection,  lifestyle (facials, sun exposure, smoking, acidic skincare products, etc), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), chemical peels, etc.

Please note that final results can not be guaranteed as each skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. We will re-evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and make any changes necessary.

What can I do to prolong the life of my brows between touch ups?

The best way is to avoid sun exposure, as this will fade your brows more than anything else. I highly recommend protecting the brows by applying sunscreen every single day, and keeping the brows covered by wearing hats and visors whenever in direct sun. Also, you should avoid applying any skincare products to the brow area that contain ingredients that brighten or lighten, such as Vitamin C, retinol, glycolic acid, etc. It is fine to apply them to the face, just avoid the brow area. Finally, keeping the skin moisturized helps to keep skin healthy and vibrant, and therefore, keep your brows looking great.

Does the procedure involve a lot of blood?

Not at all! As long as you follow the Pre Care instructions such as avoiding known blood thinners (caffeine, alcohol and pain relievers), there is hardly any blood visible during the procedure, and in most cases none at all. However, with any form of tattoo you are opening the skin and bleeding can occur. Great care is taken to properly clean the brows and ensure bleeding is subdued and that infection is prevented.

 Do you do Brow Corrections?

Yes! These are a bit more challenging, as they can involve neutralizing unwanted colors and/or reshaping to correct an undesired shape. A clear, well-lit photo of the brows must be submitted and approved prior to booking to ensure your brows can be corrected. Pricing is higher for corrections since this service involves more time and more work. If the brows are still highly saturated from previous work, one or more saline removal sessions may be required to lighten the brows before the Correction service.

What is the healing process?

The healing process is a bit of a journey! The initial skin healing lasts 2 weeks, of which the first 3 days are critical. Brows will be darker after your appointment for about 5 days, then scab up and peel for about 5 days. Then they will appear very light and patchy after it’s finished peeling, but don’t worry because closer to the 4-6 weeks the color rises back up and the brow will get darker again. Note that they will heal 30-50% lighter.

It takes up to 4-6 weeks for the pigment to fully settle in the skin. Which is why we wait to see how the skin heals and to give it time to rest before we do a Touch Up. Trusting the process is key! It is tried and true, and it works!

There are numerous restrictions for 2 weeks after the service to keep the brows clean and dry, including:

• No heavy sweating or exercising (first 3 days minimum)

• No getting the brows wet (splashing is ok, be sure to pat dry immediately)

• No swimming or submerging brows in water

• No sun exposure or tanning

• No waxing or threading the brows

• No facials or skin treatments

• No makeup or skincare products in the brow area

• No touching the brows  

Detailed instructions will be provided to you at the end of your appointment.

What do I need to buy for After Care?

Everything you need during the healing process will be provided to you in my After Care kit! This includes ointment, applicators, and visors to wear in the shower.

What if I need to reschedule?

My rescheduling policy is that you may reschedule your appointment as long as you provide at least 48 hours notice. If you do not give adequate notice or if you reschedule more than once, an additional booking deposit will be required to rebook. If you are sick or if an emergency occurs, I will work with you as best as I can to accommodate rescheduling you. However, please consider that each reschedule causes a loss for the artist due to the inability to fill the spot for someone else in such a short period. 

Do you offer training for aspiring brow artists?

Unfortunately, no I do not offer training at this time. I personally believe artists should truly master their craft and have many years of experience before they're qualified to train new artists. I may offer training services in the future when the time is right.

Why are there so many restrictions?

While microshading causes minimal trauma to the skin, it's still a process that involves your body's healing process. There are many contraindications, such as being on blood thinners or Accutane acne medicine, that are to prevent excess bleeding during the procedure. While other contraindications, such as diabetes and chemotherapy, have more to do with your immune system being able to properly heal your new brows. Each restriction/contraindication is in place for a good reason and will ensure you have optimal results. If you have any specific questions on these, please feel free to contact me or consult with your doctor.

What if I don’t like my brows?

I am confident that you will LOVE your brows! I have never had an unsatisfied client. We spend a lot of time shaping during the appointment, and you will have the opportunity to review and approve the shape before any shading begins. However, if you are not happy, I will do everything possible to make sure you love your brows! The complimentary Touch Up session can be used to correct and adjust brows as desired. In worst case scenarios, emergency removal can be performed within 48 hours of the tattooing, which should lift the pigment out before it heals or settles.
