IS IT PAINFUL?
Most customers only report slight discomfort during a Microblading or PMU session. Topical numbing agents are used before and during the appointment to allow for the most comfort possible.
MICROBLADING VS COMBO BROWS?
-Microblading is the most natural look in Brow PMU (Permanent Makeup). Microblading is the look of simulating additional hair strokes into the brow area to help define and fill sparse areas or enhance already semi-full brows. There will be visible skin between the hair strokes — if the desired end result is more of a powdered in makeup finish - you will want to opt for a combo brow! Microblading is also more suitable for clients with normal to combination skin. Some clients with traditional Microblading will still find themselves filling in the brows from time to time depending on the occasion. Touch ups are recommended every 12-18 months!
-Combo Brows are a step up from Microblading. A Combo Brow can be very soft and natural, yet also bold depending on the clients preference. Combo brows are the combination of Microbladed hair strokes and machine shading which gives the powdered in finish. Combo Brows are a great option for clients with noticeable asymmetry or a significant lack of brow hair. Combo Brows are also more suitable for clients who tend to have more of an oily skin type but they are also a great option for all skin types! Combo Brows will give a more filled in and defined look when healed leaving less daily maintenance. Touch ups are recommended every 18-24 months!
WHAT IS THE HEALING PROCESS?
Healing time takes a total of 4 weeks but it is only the first 7-10 days on average where you are caring for the brows and applying a topical healing agent. The brows will at first appear dark, then begin the flaking process. Once the flaking has resolved, the brows will feel light and then you notice the color coming back by week 4. You will need to avoid water, heavy sweating, tanning, botox and chemicals during your healing process.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
Once you have been scheduled, an invoice will be sent for a non-refundable $100 deposit. You may also bring a cash deposit to the studio as well. The deposit is non-refundable and cannot be credited towards a re-scheduled session unless that appointment is re-scheduled at least 48 hours before your original appointment time.
WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?
You must give a minimum of a 48 hour notice for any cancellation or to re-schedule your session. Any cancellations occurring after the 48 hour window will result in the loss of your deposit and an additional deposit will be required to re-schedule. No show appointments will NOT be rescheduled.
WHAT IS LIP BLUSHING?
Lip Blushing is a beautiful and natural enhancement of the lips. Using machine shading and a pigment choice catered to the client - we are able to achieve a soft wash of color and also help define the borders of the lips making them more symmetrical and appear fuller. Lip Blushing lasts on average 2-3 years before needing a color boost session.
