Semi Permanent Brows


Semi permanent brows are great for people who have eyebrows that are light, sparse, or non existent.  Eyebrows can be beautifully enhanced and improved with Microblading, Microshading, Ombre Brows, Powder Brows or Combo Brows.  Your eyebrows are important because they frame your eyes and give your face expression.


Microblading


Microblading is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. Overtime the strokes can blur or fade and will need to be retouched.  Microblading is a semi permanent procedure.  Your initial visit will take approx. 3 hours, 4-6 weeks later you will have to come in for a touch up appt.   After your initial appointments you should come in once a year for maintenance.  Microblading has no downtime, however you will have to keep the area dry, sweat free, clean and makeup free in the area for 72 hours.  


Powder/Ombre Brows 


Ombre Brows also known as Powdered Brows is a Semi Permanent Makeup technique that creates a soft shaded brow pencil look. Powder Brows are recommended for people who fill their brows on a daily basis.  Powder Brows are suited for most skin types including mature skin, oily skin, people with deep pores, or for cover ups of previous brow work.



What is the difference between Ombre/Powder brows and Microblading?

The biggest difference between the two semi-permanent procedures is how the pigment is deposited into the skin.  Microblading uses a handheld tool to carve cuts into the skin resembling a hair stroke. Ink is the deposited into the cut so it gives the illusion of hair.  Whereas Powder/Ombre Brows is done with a machine.  Ombre/Powder Brows can be done on more skin types that Microblading.  The Ombre/Powder technique is less invasive than Microblading.   Microblading will give the appearance of hair and ombre/powder brows will have a soft shaded pencil look. 


Lip Blush


Lip Blushing is a form of Semi Permanent Makeup.  Some refer to Lip Blush as Permanent Lipstick.  It is a tattoo of the lips that enhances the beauty of the natural lip color, improving the shape of the lips, giving definition and the illusion of fullness.  This treatment delivers very natural results.  A tiny needle deposits pigment into the lips, which build layers of color.  It can be used as a corrective service to help even out the tone of the lips, but it can also help with the asymmetry lips are a process and will require at least one, sometimes 2 touch up appts to achieve the color. 


Permanent Eyeliner


Permanent Eyeliner enhances and defines the beauty of the eyes.  It makes the eyelashes appear thicker even when not wearing mascara or lash extensions.  Permanent Eyeliner is waterproof and never smears or smudges.  I offer simple a simple Lash Enhancement, Dusty Liner and Winged Liner. 


Does the price include touch ups?


No, all Permanent Makeup procedures require a touchup about 4-6 weeks after the initial appointment.   You should come in once a year after the original work for a color boost.  This price is not included in the original price.  


Why do I need an annual touch up?


Fading can occur due to sun exposure, tanning, skin care products, makeup remover, your skins natural exfoliation process.  Exposure to these elements oxidizes the color which can make browns turn to pinks and blacks turn to blues. 

Permanent makeup pigments, unlike tattoo ink softens and lightens over time. approx. 20-35% of the ink will fade annually.  This is also a good time to switch up any color or add in any missing Microblading strokes.


I have a previous tattoo on my eyebrows can I still get Microblading?


Generally Microblading is not the best procedure after previous work but in most cases old tattoos can be lightened and then covered with Powder Brows.  Depending on how saturated the ink is, we may have to start with removal.  The amount of removal sessions required depends on the person and the desired outcome.  Consultations are free of charge and will be needed to determine the best method to achieve the new desired look.


I have previous permanent makeup the faded to an odd color.  Can you fix this?


Most likely yes, a consultation will be needed to determine the best course of action whether it is removal or color correction.  Consultations are free of charge. 


What is LI-ft and how does it work? 


Li-ft is a top of the line pigment lighting solution that safely facilitates the removal of unwanted pigment from the face and small areas of the body.  It is a saline solution that contains no chemicals or acids and is made from all natural fruit extract.  LI-ft is less evasive and safer than laser removal. This technique is sometimes referred to as Reverse Tattooing. It involves the same traditional equipment as tattooing, however instead of pigment the saline solution is implanted into the skin casein the skin to reject the pigment.  


I got my eyebrows done by another artist and they are crooked/ too big/ too dark what do I do?


It is normal for the eyebrows to look too big and dark the next day.  However sometimes a mistake was made and they may be crooked or an unflattering shape.  Emergency removal can be done.  It does need to be done within 72 hour of the initial procedure, however the sooner the better.  If emergency removal is needed I will do my best to fit you in after hours if needed.            You must call me and indicate that you are looking for emergency removal in order for me to prioritize getting you in outside of normal business hours.  


Henna Brows


Not sure if you will like Microblading or Powder Brows? I offer Henna brows whisk is a non-permanent service which allows clients to experience the bolder brows with a short term commitment.  Henna stains the skin beneath the brows.  There are little to no risks involved other than rare skin irritations.

The cost is significantly lower, however the will fade in 10-14 days. 


What is Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy and Mesotherapy?


Mesotherapy Infusion through Microneedling is a skin enhancing treatment done using a surface pen or derma pen paired with Mesotherapy topical serums.  Microneedling allows for the skin to be broken for the serums to enter at different depths.  Microneedling alone offers many benefits for skin enhancement.

Mesotherapy serums are designed to help a variety of skin concerns such as scars, boosting collagen, encouraging hair growth, fat reduction, repairing broken capillaries, acne and much more

Microneedle treatments use a pen like device that oscillates a tip up and down to stimulate a skin reaction.  Microneedling induces cell turnover, serum infusion and provokes the healing process that results in skin transformation.  

The derma pen glides gently along the skin, penetrating the layers of the skin closest to the surface to create numerous tiny needle wounds.  The therapy encourages the body to respond through creation of the new collagen and elastin fibers.  As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.

Mesotherapy serums can also be purchased to use topically as part of your daily skincare regimen.

What are Needless Hyaluronic Acid Injections


Hyaluron Pen treatment penetrates Hyaluronic Acid Gel into the epidermis without the use of needles.  Using high pressure technology, the Hyaluron Pen injects the Hyaluronic Acid formula into the area, creating an instant lift and enhancement.  The microscopic hole which the formula enters the skin is twice as small as the needle used for typical injections.  The device uses high pressure air flow to push nanoscale molecules directly into the skin.  This makes the distribution of the gel into the skin much more uniform compared to the average needle injection. Because of these features, it is a safe and pain free procedure.  

It is important to keep in mind that the pen is used for subtle enhancements and cannot take the place or be compared to regular needle injection fullness and swelling.  Also note that smooth serums are used with pen injections therefor smoother results will occur.  Hyaluronic Acid Gels are natural substances and their longevity cannot be guaranteed or predicted, as the body is able to naturally break them down.  Average duration on Hyaluronic Acid based gel can last anywhere from 2-6 months, but the results will vary greatly from person to person.

Whether you want to reduce wrinkles or augment your lips, the Hyaluron Pen is the best, pain free treatment available today.  


The pens main functions are:


-Reduction of wrinkles around lips

-Lip volume enhancement and lip contouring

-Enhance concave areas of the face

-Fill crows feet


What is Hyaluronic Acid?


Hyaluronic Acid is the most hydrating substance in the world, A natural sugar that is present in your body.  It provides skin tissue with the adequate moisture levels.  Because the human body creates this chemical naturally it is impossible for you to have any allergic reaction to treatments using Hyaluronic Acid.

With time, the body decreases its Hyaluronic Acid production.  In mature or neglected skin, collagen fibers can dry up and become thinner, giving the skin a dull dehydrated look.  Hyaluronic Acids main function is to attract moisture and retain water in the skin.  When the body has lower levels of Hyaluronic Acid a decrease of hydration and elasticity will occur.  This process is what causes the skin to sag and wrinkles to form.  By adding Hyaluronic Acid to skin tissue it revives its collagen activity thus promoting a fresher, younger and fuller effect. 


Are Hyaluron Pen Injections safe?


Although the Hyaluron Pen is a relatively new concept, it is completely safe.  The human body makes Hyaluronic Acid naturally, there have been no recorded cases of an allergic reaction.   It targets a specific area, so there is little risk associated with the treatment.  Additionally, the completely non invasive nature of the Hyaluronic Acid Pen treatment offers the opportunity of providing lip and facial augmentations with minimal pain involved.
