permanent makeup


Why do I need semi-permanent makeup ?

It is great for sparse eyebrows, thin/overplucked, hair loss, to refine/shape, busy bodies, water proof, sweat proof, time saver, efficient with makeup, and most importantly enhancing facial features.

What is Ombre Brows ?

Ombre brows is a powdered filled in brow similar to the look of makeup. The tails of the brow are darker

and fade into lighter start of the brow. Great for anyone who fills in their brows with makeup.

Good for all skin types, Lastsing 1-3 years.

What is Microblading ?

A form of permanent makeup. It consists of realistic individual hair-like strokes drawn on manually with a handheld tool. Each curved microblading stroke follows the natural hair flow of your existing eyebrows, blending perfectly and naturally. Perfect for dry to normal skin types

What is Micro-Shading brows ?

Combining hair like strokes in the front with powder shading on the ends of the tail, this technique creates more density in the brow, and more coverage of selected areas. It is a great option for covering up old faded tattooed brows or just the perfect add-on for a fuller look. Good for all skin types.


How long does the session take?

For the first permanent makeup session, the entire procedure should take about 2.5-3 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure.

The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1.5-2 hours to complete and is booked at your first session.

How long does it take to heal?

The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. DO NOT pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as the skin heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.

Is the touch up session necessary?

Yes! A touch up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted or retouched due to scabbing, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!


Can I get my touch up session sooner than 4 weeks?

Touch up sessions should not be done earlier than 4 weeks after initial microblading session as pigment color has not fully settled into the skin. Most importantly, this is to prevent scar damage as the tissue requires time to completely heal.

Trusting the healing process is an important step.

Is it painful?

The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, it is reapplied during the procedure. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything at all. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine.

After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. Clients can take Tylenol but NOT aspirin or ibuprofen due to blood thining.


How long will my eyebrows last?

Since microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type:

  • normal
  • oily
  • dry
  • age (youthful/mature)

Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan, uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid will fade faster as your skin will resurface quicker. Each individual's color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months after first touch up within 4-6 weeks. Clients can let the microbladed area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain.

Risks and complications?

We take all proper precautions for a safe session by using sterilized equipment, new and disposable needles and in a sanitized environment. Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, there should be minimal risks or complications. Although allergic reactions to the pigments are rare, it could be possible for certain individuals. We suggest a pigment patch test for individuals who have high skin sensitivities or are sensitive to:

  • Topical makeup products
  • Gold, silver and nickel
  • Hair dyes

A patch test can be offered for patients with sensItive skin types.


What if I do not like it?

As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly. We always recommend clients do their own research, understand the procedure and compare different artists' work and portfolio when making their decisions. Our brow technicians will do their utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done.

Can i book if i have previous permanant makeup done?

If you have had your brows done previously please email unedited and unfiltered photos ( WITHOUT MAKEUP ) of your brows in good lighting


What activities should i avoid?

After permanent makeup treatment, you should avoid any activity that includes sweating. So, no working out, visiting saunas, sitting in the sun.

No swimming also, water can damage your freshly done microblading or any other permanent makeup treatment.


It is NOT needed, we will chose the shape and color during your appointment. You will have a chance to see and approve the shape before we start the procedure. We will listen carefully to your goals and recommend shapes and colors along with a mock-up of the proposed design. This way you can choose your best look.

Also, we will be seeing you for a touchup appointment in the following months so you may “fine-tune” your design and make adjustments to shape and color.
