Microblading & Permanent Makeup
WE SPECIALIZE IN THE MOST NATURAL-LOOKING MICROBLADING TREATMENTS FOR BROWS, EYELINER, LIPS & HAIRLINE
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a technique where fine lines are scratched into the surface of the skin, and pigment embedded. The strokes accurately replicate hair (as in a brow or hairline). Results can last from six to 18 months, depending on a variety of factors such as color of pigment, skin type, and lifestyle.
WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?
Permanent makeup are treatments that replicate perfectly applied conventional makeup, most frequently on the brows, lash line, lips, and hairline. This is done by inserting cosmetic pigments into the dermis layer of the skin by means of a tiny, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of cosmetic makeup or to enhance the natural features of the face. Also known as Microblading, Micro-Pigmentation, Brow Embroidery, and Cosmetic Tattooing.
DOES PERMANENT MAKEUP HURT?
A highly-effective, topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure.
HOW LONG DOES PERMANENT MAKEUP LAST?
The treatment is considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, it will fade over time and may need a touch-up every 1-2years. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas. Please note that final results can not be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. I will re-evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and make any changes necessary.
Touch-ups are normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring 2 visits. The initial procedure followed by a touch-up procedure about 2 months later. Previously tattooed eyebrows may require one or two additional appointments and rarely achieve similar results to those who have no previous tattoo work.
CAN YOU COVER "OLD SCHOOL" TATTOOED BROWS?
In some cases we can revive traditionally tattooed eyebrows but not always. Cover ups depend on the current color, age of the previous tattoo and scar tissue.
Darker previously tattooed eyebrows are harder to cover because the hair strokes we apply disappear into the previous tattoo. Think of this like drawing on black paper with a black pen, you wont see much. If the issue is to adjust the color from blue back to brown, we CAN color correct. We can also make them thicker but they will always be solid where the old tattoo exists.
Pink or orange previously tattooed eyebrows have a better chance for coverage but still can leave us pretty solid depending on each individuals skin. If the old tattoo has left the skin scarred there is a great chance the Microblading will not hold. Scar tissue tends to reject pigment in a lot of cases.
If you need cover up work please email us for a face to face or email consultation. If you want to do an email consult we will need you to send us a photo so we can evaluate your brows.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Two treatments are usually needed, at least 8 weeks apart. Sometimes just one treatment is sufficient, but a touch-up appointment is recommended just in case. With most procedures, the color looks dramatically lighter after the first week. Some clients prefer this, while others opt for a bolder look. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. If your cosmetic tattoo does not heal perfectly the first time, do not worry! We can always go darker and add more density at your next appointment.
WHAT FACTORS WILL AFFECT MY PERMANENT MAKEUP?
Sun exposure: The sun fades the pigment faster so sun block may be used to prolong your enhancement.
The regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds.
The speed at which the skin absorbs the pigment: The slower the absorption, the longer the pigment will hold.
The choice of color: Some colors fade quicker than others, e.g. a blonde color will fade quicker than a dark brown color.
The area of treatment: Enhancements to the face, for example, fade more quickly due to constant exposure.

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY PROCEDURE?
For eyebrows: If you have an ideal shape and color in mind, bring a few reference photos with you to your appointment. If you regularly get your eyebrows shaped, waxed, threaded or tinted, please let me know. If there are any stray hairs that fall outside of our final shape, we can remove them. You may fill-in your eyebrows prior to your appointment if you wish so we can get a sense of what your daily makeup routine is like. If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 14 days after the procedure. We also request our clients avoid prescription blood thinners (if possible) for 24 hours prior to their appointment. This also includes Vitamin E, Aspirin and Alcohol
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER? WHAT IS THE HEALING PROCESS?
Your semi-permanent makeup will appear darker and bigger than expected for the first few days. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. Please view my detailed Aftercare instructions.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
We will provide you with aftercare instructions following your procedure. It is highly beneficial to follow these instructions to ensure a comfortable healing process and to achieve the best results. The most essential aftercare is to keep the treated area moist, DO NOT rub or pick the healing area as the color will peel off prematurely, and avoid extreme heat and contaminated bodies of water (such as saunas, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, pools, lakes, places with hot humidity).
HOW WILL MY PERMENANT MAKEUP LOOK IN THE FUTURE?
During your appointment, we will analyze your skin's undertone to anticipate how pigment colors will fade in the future. We will also mix pigments to ensure color remains in the same tone. The majority of our clients' cosmetic tattoos stay true to color. There are some cases, however, where colors may fade to different tones according to the individual’s response to the pigments (like lifestyle and iron deficiencies). Many factors affect these changes. At your follow up appointment, we will re-analyze how your body has responded to the initial color. Special formula alteration to correct the color and to prevent further color change is made at this time.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT LONG TERM CARE?
A good sunscreen applied daily AFTER healing on the tattooed area(s) is needed to help keep color true. As with any tattoo, sun exposure will make the color fade faster. The pigment used is iron-oxide based. Your body absorbs it as mineral irons, so the color will fade over time. You may need a touch-up every 1-3 years. The fading speed depends on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, pigment color used, broken capillaries, iron deficiency, and if any chemical peels were done after cosmetic tattooing.
If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI or other medical procedure, please inform the technician that you have had an iron-oxide cosmetic tattoo. Careful application must be taken to avoid affecting the tattooed area.
If you are planning to have laser treatments, tell your laser specialist to avoid the pigmented area. Laser may cause pigment to turn black.
WHAT IS SCALP MICROPIGMENTATION?
Micropigmentation, also named Tricopigmentation, is a non-surgical treatment which uses the latest technology to create the effect of a full head of hair. This is a non-invasive treatment that deposits pigment into the scalp using fine micro-needles by accurately replicating your own natural hair follicles and hair color. The procedure creates the appearance of tiny hair follicles adding density to thinning areas, creating an undetectable illusion of thicker, stronger and fuller hair. Micropigmentation treatment can restore receded hairlines, thicken remaining hair, camouflage transplant scarring, and create the look of close-cropped hair. It’s also effective for those suffering from just a little minor hair thinning or recession.
Unlike classic tattoo, no permanent ink is used during Tricopigmentation treatments. Our pigments are hypoallergenic (no allergic reactions) and eventually dissolve and fade without any side effects. Yearly touch ups are required to maintain the effect.
Ideal treatment for those:
looking for that perfect shaven look
Too young for a hair transplant
That have a bad donor area, thus not allowing for hair restoration
Looking to increase the optical density of a hair restoration without a follow up hair transplantation
Looking for a fast result
Oppose surgical procedures
Oppose hair pieces
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COSMETIC TATTOOING AND STANDARD BODY TATTOOING?
The purpose of Cosmetic Tattooing is to enhance the natural features of a client. Cosmetic Tattooing is softer and more subtle – it is meant to be a natural-looking beauty enhancement. Body tattoos use ink while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve only iron-oxide based pigments. These pigments are designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the technician to make changes to colour and shape over the years as client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.
Tricopigmentation vs Classic Tattoo
No permanent pigments, no fading to blue
Biodegradable ink, without heavy metals
Pigments are placed less deep, hence no damage to existing hair follicles
We add an anesthetic ointment, which makes the treatment more comfortable
Does not leave scars and produces virtually immediate results
