Powder Brows | Microblading
The impact eyebrows have on a person's appearance is incredible. Your eyebrows act as a frame for your eyes and balance your face, They can transform your appearance and are one of the most identifying features that help people recognize you. Properly shaped eyebrows have the power of giving a more youthful appearance as well as brightening your eyes, balancing and framing your face.
Years ago when I first decided to really take my Eyebrow business seriously, I enrolled in a mentorship program with a renowned award-winning eyebrow artist. I learnt quickly all of the key points you need to understand when shaping a client's eyebrows this knowledge and experience is what led me to decide that I wanted to be able to give my clients a more semi-permanent answer to daily brow makeup.
Semi Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing has always been something in the back of my mind I thought I would like to pursue, Being a perfectionist, Very steady with my hands, Artistic with a keen eye for what is most flattering on someone's face, All of these traits assisted me in the decision to enroll in a micro pigmentation school. Extensive research led me to Bio-Touch where I completed my Full Comprehensive Training in, Color Theory, Sanitation, Sterilization, Cross Contamination, Microblading/ Feathering for Eyebrows, Powdered & Ombre Eyebrows.

The techniques, pigments, and longevity are what differentiate's body tattooing from cosmetic tattooing.

Does the semi-permanent makeup Process Hurt?
I go above and beyond to ensure client comfort during any brow treatment. I use a combination of highly effective numbing agents to pre-numb your skin prior to the session and during the session. Pain tolerance levels differ from person to person but with the use of these numbing agents the treatment can be very tolerable and comfortable.
If I am pregnant or nursing can I get a semi-permanent makeup?

How long will a semi-permanent makeup last?
Cosmetic Tattooing will be semi-permanent, How the pigment retains in each client's skin will vary from person to person. Over time the brow makeup will fade and the area that was tattooed will require color boosts to keep the color fresh. Multiple sessions are normal with any cosmetic tattooing procedure and a minimum of 2 visits is always required with each new treatment Typically clients will visit every year to every 2-3 years for a color touch-up.
When is the second session booked for after the initial procedure?
The second session is always scheduled for no sooner than 6 weeks after the initial session, This time frame gives the skin the right amount of time to heal and for the pigment to settle in the skin.
How many sessions may be required?
Typically most clients will require two sessions to perfect their new eyebrows, there are many factors that impact how a client heals as well as maintains their pigment after the procedure, influences can range from genetics, skin health, skin type, aftercare, sun exposure, and skincare. It is common for your eyebrows to heal a bit lighter very first session, this is why we educate our clients to understand this is very normal and with the touch-up, we can address any areas that may not have taken the pigment as well and make necessary changes.
