+ WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading, a semipermanent procedure, is the art of embedding pigment beneath the skin with a specialized and sterile tool to create the illusion of strategically placed hair strokes for fuller and enhanced brows.

+ HOW DOES MICROBLADING WORK?
A series of strategically placed superficial cuts filled with pigment collectively work to create darker, fuller brows.
+ DOES MICROBLADING HURT?
Discomfort is minimal and a numbing cream is used to insure a painless procedure. Most would compare the degree of discomfort to the feeling felt when threading their brows.


+ HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING TAKE?
There are several stages which include; numbing, outlining the desired shape, the actual process of Microblading, and the fine tuning of the finished process. This usually takes roughly 2 hours.


+ WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MICROBLADING?
Like any tattoo, swelling and redness is unavoidable. You may experience an intensified vibrancy from the pigment causing a temporary darkness to your brows. As they heal, the swelling will desist, the vibrancy will settle, and the colour will restore to a natural finish. For best results, please follow the detailed aftercare instructions


+ HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
Approximately 18-24 months with proper aftercare and follow up appointment(s). Skin type and lifestyle can effect the longevity of your cosmetic tattoo — we can not guarantee specific results.


+ WHAT THE DIFFERENCE MICROBLADING AND POWDER BROWS?
Microblading uses a hand tool to create realistic looking hair strokes in the browline.
Powdered brows help clients achieve more of a powdered or ombre look instead of individual hair strokes.Powdered brows have a soft makeup look and work great for clients with oily or mature skin.

Can I get Permanent Makeup while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Answer : NO!
During pregnancy a women goes through drastic body changes relating to blood circulation, blood pressure, hormonal fluctuations etc. – all of which put the immune system under big stress.
A good time to have Permanent Makeup is either: three months after you’ve had your baby, if you are not breast feeding, or; three months after you have finished breast feeding. Three months will allow your hormones to settle and for your body to go through the initial recovery phase.


+WHAT IS LIP BLUSH ?
Lip blush is non-invasive semipermanent makeup solution (cosmetic tattoo) designed to enhances the lips color, shape and symmetry while creating the appearance of fuller lips.
How long lip blush last ?
20- 30 months , depending on skin and life style. Lighter, soft nude colors fading faster, more vibrant last longer.
How painful lip blushing?
During lip blush service we use tapping motion needles that penetrates color. Artist use numbing cream prior and during pressure for more comfort.

+WHAT IS POWDER BROWS?
Powder Brows is also permanent makeup, but it’s a totally different technique from Microblading. The Powder Brow technique punctures the skin with a needle to deposit the color. And the finished look is a ‘powdered brow,’ like you have used a pencil to fill it in, rather than individual hair strokes.
