Powder Brows are created with a micropigmentation machine and it is recommended for customers that want a soft or darker ombre makeup look. This procedure is also recommended for customers that are not good candidates for microblading due to either previous permanent makeup, large pores or oily skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
Usually, Microblading is done in two sessions. The first takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and the pigment is applied.
Six to eight weeks later, the client returns for the second session for a touch-up. A touch-up can take anywhere from one to two hours.
A touch-up is necessary because everyone heals differently and therefore results vary.
Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch-up session, the final adjustments are made to assure the client’s satisfaction.
The level of discomfort is relatively minor. Some people have reported the experience to be similar in pain to tweezing two to three hairs at the same time.
Usually, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream is applied to numb the area. Topical anesthetics are safe and may contain lidocaine, tetracaine, and epinephrine.
Redness and slight swelling in the area are common after the procedure. The feeling can be compared to the experience of a slight sunburn.
Selecting your microblading artist is an important decision, so choose wisely. Compare the work of various artists before booking. Consider the artist’s trainings, credentials, previous work and reviews. Once you have selected an artist, discuss your expectations and desired outcome, including, the shape, style, and color you wish.
Also, remember that faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Adjustments may be made during touch up, such as pigment discoloration and color correction. And finally, remember that Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if touch-ups are not done annually.
Generally, Microblading lasts six to eighteen months, depending on skin type… Normal, oily, or dry, as well as the age of the client… Young or mature.
Microblading is not permanent like a tattoo, because the pigments are not implanted so deeply into the skin. Skincare is also a big factor in the duration of the results. It is very important to follow aftercare instructions to maintain the brows. An annual touch-up appointment may be done every six to eighteen months.
We highly recommend booking an Online Consultation first with our Artist if you have an existing cosmetic tattoo to determine if you are a good candidate for Cover-up, Color Correction, Brow Restoration Treatment or a complete Tattoo Removal.
People that are pregnant, nursing or breastfeeding, prone to keloids, or have health conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, allergic reaction to latex or antibiotics, hemophilia or other bleeding disorder, cardiac valve disease, or heart problems are not allowed and restricted for the treatment.
People with an organ transplant should avoid microblading altogether. The client should also be cautious if they have a compromised liver or a viral condition such as hepatitis.
