Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique used for creating natural looking eyebrows. It is used to create hair-like strokes which fill in sparse or thinning brows. The result is realistic, natural looking and consistent with your existing eyebrow color, shape and balance.
This unique microblading technique creates beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows in just one session. The procedure is performed with a specialized blade and pigment sticks that are hand-drawn onto the skin to form hair-like strokes that imitate real eye brow hairs. Results last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on the person’s skin condition and care regime.
Powder brows is a semi-permanent cosmetic technique designed to create the perfect eyebrows. With our premium soft powder effect and unique shading technique, you can create brows that are more natural than ever before. Just like an artist would paint them for you - only better!
Our brow artist will use a small needle to place pigment into the skin with a quick hand motion, resulting in a pixelated effect of powder makeup. In order to add density, the artists can layer the pixels repetitively, which will appear as though the brow was filled in with a pencil or brow pomade.
Our most popular service, the combo brow is a combination of microblading and powder brows that creates a natural result. The first part of the brow will have hair-like strokes to give it a natural look, while transitioning to a full body fill and tail of the brow for more density.

PERMANENT MAKEUP AFTERCARE
Use wash daily to remove bacteria, product build up and oils, as well as dead skin. Please note that this does not remove the pigment from your skin.
Gently cleanse your eyebrows with the soap at each morning and night. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds, then rinse with water ensuring that all soap is removed. When drying do so gently with a clean tissue and never apply exfoliating products such as (glycolic, lactic, or AHAS). Days 1-10: Moisturize
The goal of aftercare is to provide a moist and clean environment for your tattoo to heal. Apply a rice grain amount of ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on wet or damp tattoo.
Your brows will heal in 4 stages: 1st Stage (Week 1) - Dark and Bold
Brows may start to develop a thin layer of scab. 2nd Stage (Week 2) - Itchy, Patchy, Peeling
The scab is starting to feel tight and dry. Itching and flaking may occur during this week. This is the beginning stages of scabs peeling off, do not pull them off.
Avoid picking or scratching as it can pull off scabs prematurely and cause patchy results or scarring. 3rd Stage (Week 3) - Light and Uneven
Scabs are done peeling. Brows will appear very light after scabs come off (the lightness will vary for each individual), every week for up to 6 weeks,
color will continue to surface, and brows will get darker. Brows are safe from water and clients may return to their normal skincare routine. 4th Stage (Week 4) - Brows Get Darker and Fuller
At this stage, the color of the brows is complete and the redness is gone. Brows have fully healed. A touch-up will be needed to
make proper adjustments between 5-8 weeks, not exceeding 10 weeks.
SIGNS OF INFECTION
As you care for your tattoo, be sure to watch for these warning signs of a possible infection:
Worsening red, itchy bumps at the site of the tattoo
Redness and swelling: remember that mild redness is to be expected the first two to three days after getting a tattoo. If it progresses, worsens or accelerates three to five days after getting the tattoo, you need to take action due to high likelihood of a skin infection.
Pus with foul-smelling drainage
Systemic symptoms like fevers and chills
WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR
You can develop a severe infection from an infected tattoo. Seek medical care immediately if you develop severe pain, intense swelling, severe redness or warmth at the tattoo site, systemic symptoms like fevers and chills, nausea and vomiting or foul-smelling drainage from the tattoo.
