WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading is the most subtle and natural option. Deposit of pigments are made with tiny blades to create hyper-realistic hair like strokes. Color retention time may range anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, with most clients needing touch ups only once a year. NOT recommended to those with oily skin types and / or active clients who sweat a lot.

WHAT ARE POWDER / OMBRE BROWS?

The powder brow technique is great for clients who like the look of a soft penciled or powdered eyebrow or those wanting a more defined look throughout the entire brow. This brow can be soft and subtle or bold and defined. Great for those with little to no hairs, and oily skin type to add density. This technique is minimally invasive, and usually lasts longer than traditional microblading. Great for all skin types.

WHAT ARE COMBO BROWS?

The “Combo Brow” is a combination of microblading technique and powder technique. The brows are lighter and wispier in the front with hair-like strokes and gradually transitions to a powdery look. The powder look is acheived through machine shading. The best of both worlds.

WHAT ARE NANOBLADING BROWS?

Nanoblading uses a SPMU machine to draw on hair-like strokes vs a manual blade. If you have oily skin and like the hair-like strokes this is for you! The needle is very thin and thus causing less trauma to the skin; therefore, making them less painful to apply. Nano brows heal faster and typically last longer than microbladed brows. With regular touch ups, the lifespan of microbladed brows is 1-2 years, whereas nano brows can last up to 3 years.

WHAT ARE NANO COMBO BROWS?

The Nano Combo is a combination of nanoblading hair strokes and powder technique. The brows are lighter and more wispy in the front with hair-like strokes and gradually transitions to a powdery look. The best of both worlds with nano.

DOES IT HURT?

Pain during treatment is relative.  Clients during their menstrual cycle can be more sensitive to pain, while other clients compare the pain to the when they get their eyebrows tweezed. However, I use a double numbing process containing topical lidocaine and epinephrine before and during the procedure to ensure that you are comfortable.

WHY DO I NEED THE TOUCH-UP SESSION?

Touch-up sessions are highly recommended and done 8-10 weeks after the treatment, because between 10 – 15% of drawn strokes disappear after the first treatment. Very few clients only require one session depending on their skin type, and how well they care for their brows. The first appointment is about building foundation hair strokes and shape. Any problems with shape and density can be addressed during your touch-up appointment. Your touch-up is about assessing how the skin heals and retains pigment, as well as making any necessary adjustments to solidify the shape and density. For those who have oily or problematic skin, a third touch-up session may be needed.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?

The whole healing session takes about 7-10 days depending on skin type. I usually advise clients to book appointments two weeks prior to special occasions to give enough time for healing.
