What Is Microblading & Ombre Powder Brows?
Who Is It For?
Microblading and/or powder brows is a great solution if you have faint or naturally fine brows. Or no brows at all. These methods are ideal for anyone who is not happy with their eyebrows and wants to enhance the look of their brows. The effects will be waterproof, smudge-proof and completely realistic.
Does It Hurt?
We realize that everyone’s ability for bearing pain is different therefore we apply a two-part topical anesthetic before and during the procedure to numb the affected area to ensure that you are comfortable and feel as little to no pain as possible. Many clients have stated that the pain is similar to getting their eyebrows threaded or waxed.

How Is Brow Shape And Color Decided?
We will analyze your skin type and undertones as well as brow color, hair color, natural growth patterns, bone structure and will also take into consideration how you normally shape or fill your brows. With my professional opinion and your preferential input, we will design and shape a custom brow that is natural and flattering to you.
Is It Possible To Cover My Old Tattoo Brows?
If you have previous permanent makeup on your eyebrows please email a photo of your current eyebrows before scheduling an appointment to determine if we will be able to service you. Email: email@example.com
What Can I Expect After My Procedure?
How Long Does It Last?
Microblading and Ombre Powder Brows are considered semi-permanent thus the color will eventually fade over time. Each skin type will hold pigment differently so final results cannot be guaranteed. Typically, microblading can last between 12-18 months and ombre powder brows can last up to 2-3 years. Please keep in mind that smoking can cause pigment to fade prematurely.
How Often Will I Need A Touch-Up?
Touch ups are recommended 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure to perfect the shape and color. I recommend scheduling touch ups yearly to keep your color fresh however frequency of touch ups depend upon skin type, sun exposure, pigment color (lighter pigments tend to fade faster) and a person’s lifestyle.
