FAQ

Microblading/Cosmetic Tattoo

What is Microblading?

-Microblading refers to a specific technique, in which the pigments are inserted into the skin manually with a "blade" comprised of a row of tiny needles, rather than with a machine. Microblading mimics natural hair growth patterns and has a more natural effect than traditional eyebrow tattooing done with a machine that mimics the appearance of makeup.

How does it differ from a regular tattoo? 

-The difference lies in the depth at which we implant the ink into the skin. In microblading we only want to reach the top of the dermal layer of the skin. This depth allows us to see clean lines as well as warm and rich tones leaving a natural result. This also allows the pigments to fade over time. Traditional tattoos are planted deeper into the skin.

Are the pigments safe? 

-Yes. The pigments used at the studio are a glycerine based formula made exclusively for use with cosmetic tattooing. They are free of heavy metals and tartrazin.

How long does microblading last? 

-This varies from person to person, based on a few different factors (activity level, sweating, oiliness of skin, sun exposure, skin care routine, how well you follow the aftercare instructions).  After your initial sessions, a touch up is recommended every 12-24 months.

How painful is it? 

-This also varies from person to person but for most it is minimal discomfort. You will be numbed during the service and after most compare the sensation to a mild sunburn which only lasts a few hours.

Can you do my brows if I got them done somewhere else previously? 

-Corrections are taken on a case by case basis. Pictures will have to be submitted prior to making an appointment and will be evaluated.  In some cases removal will be required before any adjustments can be made to your brows.  Results are not guaranteed.

Its there anything else I should know before my appointment? Anything I should or shouldn't do? 

-Your appointment will need to be made a minimum of two weeks after receiving botox treatments, a minimum of one month before any trips to the beach, or periods of high activity. It is also not recommended that you schedule your appointment close to any special events as you will be going through a healing period and it is a two step process. Also try to schedule your appointment around your cycle. If it's that time of the month you may be more sensitive to pain!   Please discontinue use of any products that contain retinol 3 weeks before your appointment. Stay out of the sun leading up to your appointment, if you are burned we will have to reschedule. Avoid caffeine the day of your appointment. Drink lots of water leading up to your appointment, hydrated skin is healthy skin! Contradictions include: under 18, uncontrolled blood sugar, pregnancy or breastfeeding, blood thinners, Accutaine, steroids, active skin cancer, chemotherapy (consult doctor). If you have recently received a covid-19 vaccination, you must have a two week window in between your vaccination date and your appointment.  If you have any questions please reach out.

What should I expect right after, and the days following my appointment?

-Immediately after, your brows will be slightly darker and more pronounced. The final result will be much more subdued so it is important that you be patient and let the healing process take its course. Trying to scrub pigment off, picking or use any substances to increase fading may lead to infection and possible scarring. Around the four to five day point you will notice the surface layer gently flake away, as the skin is healing.  An initial touch up is always scheduled to check for color retention, symmetry, and to make sure you are happy with the result. Two initial appointments are required but more may be necessary to achieve the desired result. As with any tattoo or cosmetic procedure, everyone's body may react differently and results are not guaranteed. 

Lashes

*Please come in with clean lashes

How are eyelash extensions applied?

-To apply the lash extensions, your lash artist will carefully isolate each and every one of your natural lashes using a tweezer tool. Once a natural lash is isolated, the artist will place a single lash extension or hand made volume lash fan on top of one of your natural lashes using a tiny amount of lash glue. This process is repeated until a lash extension has been placed on most of your natural lashes.

 

Does the process of getting lash extensions hurt?

-No. The process of having lash extensions applied should not be painful if it is done carefully and properly. You will be laying down on a lash bed with your eyes closed for the entire service. Some clients feel comfortable enough to fall asleep.

 

Will eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?

-If the lash extensions are applied properly and you do not pick or pull at them when wearing them, your natural lashes will not get damaged. We make sure that you receive a proper lash application which includes full natural lash isolation and using a very small amount of adhesive. 

 

How long do eyelash extensions last? 

-Lash extensions can last 2-3 weeks.

 

How do I take care of my lash extensions?

-Lash extensions are fairly low maintenance. You must avoid steam, high heat, oils/creams, and makeup removers. You should also avoid picking at or pulling on the lashes. You should wash your lash extensions every day with a lash wash and soft bristled makeup brush. 

 

What is a lash lift? 

A lash lift is in short a perm for your eyelashes. It typically lasts about 6-8 weeks as each lash sheds roughly every 28 days. You will notice the effects slowly lose intensity as the curled lashes shed and the new straight lashes grow in. It is recommended to schedule your appointment at minimum every 8 weeks to keep your lashes healthy and to avoid over lapping, and over processing.

Other Brow Services

What is brow lamination? Am I a good candidate? Brow lamination is a relaxer for the brows. It tames unruly brows and allows us to control the direction at with the hairs will lay. This service is best for people with unruly brows, or brows with longer hair. Short and sparse brows will not get as dramatic of a result.
