Eyebrows are the most important feature of your face. They frame the eyes and give the face emotions and expressions!

The Ombré / Powder Brows

This is a form of a powder technique that replicates the look of your eyebrow pencil. Ombre has a gradient where it goes lighter at the center of the eyebrow and gradually gets darker towards the center and ends of the brow; while powder is the same color throughout the brow.

This look provides additional soft definition to beautifully accentuate your eyes and is especially helpful to those with oily skin types. Ombre or Powder Brows are meant to create a diffused powder look much like makeup. They do not incorporate hair strokes and are best for clients that desire a fuller-looking brow or for those that have existing brow hair but want to add base color. This technique is NOT the same as a solid 'block tattoo' eyebrows. No more filling in your brows! This is a machine technique which achieves a natural soft powder look. Thousands of dots of custom blended, the hypo-allergenic pigment is implanted layer by layer producing a gradient of color from dark to light. This mimics the natural color progression of the brow from the tail and the core to the bulb. Ombre is a technique that is great for those with oily skin, aging skin, acne prone skin, sensitive skin and even those who have had previous permanent makeup. Prior to the procedure we will shape and customize your brows to a size and shape that complements your facial features and brings out your eyes. We will also select a color that best matches your natural complexion and skin tone baring in mind undertones and skin conditions. Topical anesthetics are applied before and during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. The procedure requires approximately two hours and there is no “down time”. A touch up is required 6-12 weeks after the initial procedure. After that, touch-ups are recommended yearly to maintain color richness and shape.

Please note:
For the first 10-12 days, eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and thicker due to scab formation and the natural skin healing process of the immune system. This is common and to be expected for all permanent makeup procedures.

Yes.  Your input is necessary to achieve the results you will be satisfied with. Plan on bringing your favorite lip/eye/brow makeup with you.  We take into consideration the colors you prefer as well as your natural skin color, hair color and eye color.  A soft, natural look is always preferred, but a more made up look can also be achieved.

It is our goal to work with you to achieve the look you want.  Our approach is one of "teamwork."  We begin the procedure by taking a "before" picture without your makeup.  Then we begin the "design" phase.  We will ask you to draw on what you normally do.  Then, we will help you fine-tune the design by making suggestions, adding and subtracting from the design, and asking for your feedback.  We will work together until the design looks even and balanced and we are both pleased with the result.  During the procedure, we will follow the design lines that have already been created with pencil.

Yes, Permanent make-up looks more natural than eyebrow pencils. A soft fill-in of color will create the appearance of a soft, full brow. We also use hair strokes technique to make eyebrows look more natural.

The color will soften and fade over time due to many factors such as skin exfoliation (both natural and chemically induced), sun exposure and/or tanning beds, and some types of medication. Sun exposure is the major reason pigment fades. You may want to refresh your color in approximately 2-5 years. The cost for a Retouch is about half the cost of the initial application.

Sometimes.  But mostly, Permanent Cosmetics is a multi-session process.  We begin with a consultation and the first application.  We arrange for a follow-up visit in 30-60 days, to check for light spots re-define any areas that require it.  A lot will depend on your skin’s own healing process as to what work needs to be done during the follow-up visit.  There is no extra charge for the follow-up visit at our office.

Each procedure takes approximately between 1 to 3 hours to complete. This includes time that is taken for Consultation of design and color prior to procedure, anesthetic time, application time, after care instruction, any bathroom breaks and scheduling a follow up visit.  Because of the high degree of attention and focus required by each technician during the procedure,  we do not allow children in the treatment room.  We do not allow children to be left in the lobby.

We prefer you wear NO traditional make up on the procedure site as it needs to heal for about 7 days.  However, you may wear makeup everywhere else.

For Eyebrows, you could have the procedure performed in the morning and be at work the same afternoon.  For Eyeliner, you may return to work the next day.  Your eyes may look slightly "puffy" for 1-2 days, as if you’ve been crying.  Lips usually require 2 days off to allow the swelling to go down.

DO NOT TAKE: Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
For EYELINER:  If you wear contact lenses, bring your glasses with you and plan on using your glasses for at least the next 4 days. For LIPLINER or FULL LIP COLOR:  If you have ever had a cold sore or fever blisters in your life, we suggest that you obtain a 10-day oral prescription for Zovirax, Aclovir, Valtrex or Famvir capsules (an antiviral medication) from your physician or dentist and begin taking them 5 days prior to this procedure and continue taking them 5 days after.  Once the procedure has taken place it is also necessary to shield the lips from the sun for 5-7 days to prevent blisters from occurring.

Yes.  Micropigmentation applications provide a subtle look for natural feature enhancement. You may choose to apply more makeup for more glamorous look.

Our pigments are inorganic iron oxides which contain no artificial additives and do not contain FD & C or D&C dyes. "Less than .l% in over 100,000 estimated permanent cosmetic procedures performed nationwide over the last 10 years resulted in an allergic reaction," according to Micropigmentation, State of the Art, by Charles S. Zwerling. M.D. Many of our clients cannot wear regular traditional cosmetics due to allergies.... with Permanent Cosmetics, now they can have carefree makeup, 24 hours a day.

No.  The pigments used in Permanent Cosmetics are different from traditional tattooing. Our pigments do not migrate or appear "blotchy" over time, because we use inert iron oxides.  In addition, the color will fade naturally over time. However, a lot depends on the skill level of the Technician.  If you choose to have your Permanent Cosmetics applied elsewhere, be sure to ask if they are using traditional tattoo inks or if they are using iron oxides. Some technicians do use the tattoo inks.  In addition, not every technician has been properly trained in color theory.  Your technician must understand the role that our skin’s natural undertones play in achieving your desired color. Choose your technician wisely!!!

Permanent Makeup or Permanent Cosmetic are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. Your Permanent Makeup will require some periodic maintenance (most people have a retouch in 2-5 years).  It is important to consider this and all aspects of the procedure when selecting a potential permanent cosmetic makeup technician.

Although it is a permanent makeup, these procedures do have some degree of flexibility in changing color and shape to some extent, depending on the expertise of your technician.  Your Permanent Makeup will appear darker immediately following the procedure but during the healing period, you will see the color soften and lighten up.  It’s important to remember that at first, your Permanent Makeup will look TOO DARK. This is because you have not yet gone through the healing process, and the top layer has not yet sloughed off. The healing period for most people is 7 days. During the healing period for all procedures, it is important not to pick, pull, scratch or rub off the top layer (which will appear too dark) in any way.  If you do,  you will most likely be pulling out some of the implanted color....  resulting in an additional cost to re-apply. You must let this top layer slough off by itself. Complete After Care Instructions will be given to you by your Technician, both orally and in written form.
