Yes, I am a Certified Permanent Makeup Tattoo Artist

It is a semi-permanent makeup method; the technique is natural feathering of hair-like strokes directly on the skin’s surface that creates natural-looking eyebrows. 3D Eyebrow Microblading created the background and fills in the areas of the eyebrows that looked empty so that a full and complete look is accomplished.  The “3D” effect added realism to the end result.  Unlike a traditional eyebrow tattoo, 3D Eyebrow Microblading does not leave a flat, dull and fake look that tattoos leave behind and is a MUCH Safer treatment.  The 3D Eyebrow Microblading method can fill in sparse brows or create an entire brow, which makes it the perfect procedure for Men and Women.

Instead of creating hair strokes eyebrow like Microblading, this technique is natural shading a gradient effect from the beginning of the brow to the end starting from light and fading to dark, giving the brow the sharp yet natural look.

We get mix reviews on pain.  Everyone has a different level of sensitivity so topical anesthetics are applied before and during the treatment to alleviate any sensation or discomfort.  Some clients naturally feel one brow sorer than the other.  You will hear a scratch noise/sensation throughout.  Music is usually played during the procedure, however feel free to bring your own ear phones and music to distract you.

Absolutely.  Sterilized, disposable needles and supplies are used during the process.

You won’t be swollen, you just might have slightly red skin around eyebrows, but this would last no more than 1 hour.

Yes.  Within a week of your first treatment the color will fade significantly and over the next four to six weeks can continue to fade as much as 50%.  This is  considered an extremely positive occurrence as it allows you time to reflect on your shape and color.  After this period your follow-up appointment is needed to make any changes as needed.

On the average it can last 1.5 to 2 years.  But it can last up to 4 years as long as it’s maintained.

Because color is implanted in the facial area where there tends to be more fluid circulation than other parts of the body.  Your face sees the most wear of any part of you-exposure to the sun, food facial products-the list goes on and on.  All of these things cause permanent color to fade, this is why you need a touch up.

The procedure takes roughly about three hours.  Please allow a solid 3-hours window for your appointment.  This isn’t something that I want to rush

Eyebrow tattoo is a two-step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch up between 4 to 6 weeks after.

After taking your before photo, I will draw the brow design in pencil so you get an idea of shape and form. (Please note that nobody’s face is totally symmetrical and you need to be realistic with your expectations.  There is no point in trying to make the eyebrows identical or match a photo of your favorite celebrities’ eyebrows if your face shape looks nothing like theirs.)  Once we have agreed on a final shape (ultimately it is your decision – but I will always voice my opinion on what I think suits you aesthetically).  I will shape your eyebrows then we will decide on the color.  Shortly after that, a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure comfort.  Once you’re numb, the pigment is deposited.

During healing, it’s normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up in place.

No.  There’s no downtime associated with the treatment.  Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after.  Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.

Healing time varies from individual to individual.  Usually, it takes about a week to ten days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off.  Your skin will be considered healed after that happens.  Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin.  A good month should pass before I consider the process complete.

You are advised to keep the skin clean and dry – that means no swimming, sweating or otherwise getting the area wet; no tanning or prolonged sun exposure; no picking, peeling, scratching or rubbing the tattoo, this may result in a loss of color and scarring.  You can still wash your hair and face and once they’re healed up, you treat them as your own.

Your beautiful eyebrows will last longer if you apply sunscreen often and avoid abrasive facial treatments in the brow area.

No.  Every attempt is made to retain all natural hair and integrate it into the design of the permanent eyebrows.  In some cases, where shaping of the natural brow is required, a few hairs here and there may need to be removed t create a clean and aesthetically pleasing result.
