What is the difference between Nano Brows, Powder Brows, Combo Brows, and Microblading?
Nano brows are created with a Permanent Makeup device, similar to a conventional Tattoo machine. Nano brows create the
appearance of hair strokes for a hyper realistic look. This method is appropriate for most skin types, and creates less trauma than Microblading.
Powder brows are a Cosmetic Semi-Permanent Makeup technique designed to create eyebrows with soft powder effect, very similar to powder makeup. The Powder effect is done with a shading technique using a Permanent Makeup device, which is similar to a Tattoo machine. This method is appropriate for most skin types, and creates less trauma than Microblading.
Microblading is a form of a Cosmetic Semi-Permanent Makeup performed using a manual (not a machine) disposable handheld tool. This tool is composed with very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin. Microblading is only suitable for certain skin types, and can only be performed a certain number of times before you will need to switch to another technique.
Como brows is any combination of the aforementioned methods.
How fast will it fade?
It is important to realize that I cannot predict your fading. It is fully possible to get the perfect results with only one application; however, this cannot be guaranteed. Please remember that the amount of pigment you retain or lose after your initial application is not a reflection of the quality of work. Pigment retention varies with each person, and a lot is determined by how well you follow the aftercare instructions, as well as your skin type. If you have oily skin, results will appear softer and may require additional procedures. One touchup is included with your initial service and can be done eight to twelve weeks after your first procedure.
Is it painful?
While I can't guarantee that it is 100% pain free for every person, I do use various numbing agents and the majority of people say it isn’t painful at all.
How do I maintain my Permanent Makeup?
One eight to twelve week
touch up is included for free with the initial procedure, and after that, annual touch ups are available for a reduced amount if scheduled within 18 months of your first appointment.
I had my first appointment done somewhere else; Can
you do my touch up?
I do not touch up work done by other artists and all new clients are booked as an initial procedure.
Do you do Cover Ups and Removals?
Cover ups and saline removals are done on a case-by-case basis. Commonly, you will need a few rounds of removal before I can cover old permanent make-up, depending on its current saturation level.
I also offer Emergency Removal Services for brows that you are unhappy with that may have been done somewhere else. This service must be done within 48 hours of the original procedure.
How do I take care of my Permanent Makeup?
I supply you with all of the aftercare products you will need, along with detailed instructions so your aftercare is worry free.
