What makes us different
We use products made to perform. Our pigments are of a high-density load that ensures expert results without color change. Our colors will fade to lighter versions of the same color and will last longer than most other brands. We pride ourselves in using the best and highest quality ingredients, which are certified vegan.
More options are available by request. Please note our Artist Augustine is available by appointment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior to the procedure we will shape and customize your brows to a size and shape that compliments your facial features and brings out your eyes. We will also select a color that best matches your natural complexion and skin tone bearing in mind undertones and skin conditions. Microblading does not require any tweezing, waxing, plucking, or shaving of the brows and does not damage the existing brow hair. Topical anesthetics are applied before and during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. The procedure requires approximately two hours and there is no “down time”. A touch up is required 8 weeks after the initial procedure. After that touch-ups are recommended yearly to maintain color and crispness of the strokes.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR
Permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who have the following below:
Pregnant or nursing
Chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
Viral infections and/or diseases
Pacemaker or major heart problems
Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
Botox in the past 2 weeks
Do not work out the day of the procedure.
Do not tan or have sunburned face.
Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil or Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.
No alcohol or caffeine 2 days before the procedure.
No waxing or tinting 3 days before the procedure.
No tweezing/ waxing at least 48 hours before procedure; electrolysis no less than five days before. Do not resume any method of hair removal for at least two weeks.
Eyebrow tinting should be done or removed no sooner than 48 hours before, or two weeks after the procedure.
Your post-procedure care consists of cleaning your eyebrows with our aftercare pads for the first 4 hours every hour after your procedure and then implementing 10 days of dry healing. This means that your brows cannot get wet at all. We will provide you with protective visors for showering. It would be best to wash and cleanse your face with a washcloth or wipes for these ten days to avoid any splashing on your brows. In addition, not profuse sweating (hot yoga and the sauna will have to be on pause for 10 days), no creams, no makeup directly on the brows, and no sun exposure (if you know you will need to be in the sun for extended periods of time you must wear a wide-brimmed hat). You must let the scabbing process happen naturally. This is very important for your retention and skin healing. Do NOT pick at the scabs, scratch your brows, peel your scabs off, or scrub the area. This can result in scarring and will affect your overall retention of the pigment. After 10 days you may resume your normal life and beauty routines.
Please be aware that the result of the procedure depends on the following: Medication and health conditions, skin Conditions – i.e. oily and poor skin, very dry/flaky skin, sun-damaged skin, loose or laxed skin, natural skin undertones, alcohol intake, and smoking, general stress, immune system, poor diet and not following the aftercare instructions, may affect your healed results.
Antacids, thyroid, and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks of healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.
The Ombre Powder Brows technique creates beautifully pixelated brows with a machine and is ideal for clients who like more filled-in brows. This service is great for clients of all skin types.
Get the best of both worlds with this amazing technique! The combo brow combines the hair strokes of microblading or nano with the shading of Ombre. This achieves the most natural look possible for the brow with more of a 3D effect. This technique is good for those who have particular emptiness in their brows or patchy spots, and/or for those who just want a fuller-looking brow.
NANO HAIR STROKE BROWS
Nanomachine hair stroke technique is the ultimate luxury brow service. This premier service provides all the benefits of microblading, but with much less trauma to the skin. You'll receive longer-lasting results and better color retention typically up to two-plus years after the initial touch-up is complete.
Microblading is a manual Microstroking technique used to create the appearance of brow hairs. This yields a realistic and natural result that can give the brow a fuller appearance. This technique enables us to create crisp, fine “hair” strokes that can help to fill in thin brows or brows with bald spots. It also allows us to create total brow reconstruction for those who have completely bare brows and/or have been impacted by a condition that has reduced or eliminated their brow hair growth.
Please note: Microblading is not for everyone…. For the first 10-12 days, eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and thicker due to scab formation and the natural skin healing process of the immune system. This is common and to be expected for all permanent makeup procedures.
If you are unhappy with the previous PMU that you had done it is not hopeless. Our pigment removal is effective and safe using only saline and the body’s natural immune response- no lasers. This can be helpful for those who have very old permanent makeup done using outdated techniques, or for those who have botched work they would like to correct.
Using anesthetics to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum, we brush the skin with our needles to open the skin and penetrate its layers. We then apply the saline solution which helps to create scabs. These scabs are the natural immune response of the body when skin is exposed to trauma. As the scabs form and rise to the surface of the skin to peel off, the scabs pull the pigment up and out as well. The procedure requires approximately 1-1.5 hours and there is no “down time”. There is no predetermined number of treatments. It is on an individual case by case basis. There must be a 3 month waiting period between each removal treatment if it is determined that multiple treatments are needed.
Please Note: The treated area will be tender to the touch, and may be swollen. Once the healing process has begun the area will be covered in thick scabs.
