Why Enhance Your Brows?
Eyebrows are an important feature, which frame your face and enhance your features. Permanent eyebrows are a great solution for those with sparse, light, no hair, or those who want to enhance their existing eyebrows. The brows should be designed as symmetrical as possible complimenting your coloring and your face shape. Embroidery/ Microblading is great not just for anyone looking to improve or enhance the appearance of their brows, but also for those with fine and gappy brows, and even those suffering from alopecia, as sparse or missing brows can be completely restored. The strokes are more visible when there is high contrast between skin and ink color, and they can last 1-2 years depending on the skin type and color chosen.
What is Microstroke / Embroidery?
My eyebrow method is a tattoo done by hand and not machine which are called and known as microblading, mircostroke, embroidery, feather brows or 3-D tattoo brows. This method originated in Far East Asia and is taken from the bamboo tattoo method known as one of the oldest known methods. This method is the finest form of eyebrow tattooing, using a pen-like device with a disposable instrument attached to scratch, etch and tap very thin lines into the skin. These thin lines flow in the same direction as your own hairs, and create the most natural results. Imagine waking up to perfectly groomed brows everyday without having to worry about filling in, smudging, smearing or disappearing. When using the hand held instrument, the color is deposited closer to the surface than when a machine is used, leaving very fine and crisp hair strokes with no spilling under the skin so these lines heal thinner and sharper and there is less blurring over time. With this method I can create almost any look, from a very natural light finish or a beautifully bold brow. Each set of brows I design is be spoke to you and your measurements and the color we choose should compliment you without any makeup but can easily be amped up for an evening out with a little added brow makeup.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microblading / Embroidery?

How are Beautiful Eyebrows Created?
I will customize the right eyebrow shade and thickness for you using a wide range of high quality hypoallergenic permanent makeup pigments and sterilized needle sizes. Before we begin the procedure, we sit down and work with you to shape your brows with a pencil, allowing us to agree on the best color and shape to fit your face. Microstroking does not require your entire eyebrow to be shaved and does not damage your natural hair. To keep discomfort to a minimum, anesthetic creams are used before and during the procedure. The entire process takes around 2-3 hours and there is no down time. A touch up is required once 6-8 weeks after initial procedure.
How Long Do They Last?
Pigment retention depends on skin type, age, aftercare, and sun exposure, use of certain skin products, pigments used, immune system, medications and other factors. Touch ups are recommended once a year to prevent natural fading.
Will you Remove All my Brow Hairs?
No. Your brow hairs will remain to keep your brows look natural as much as possible.
Will I Still Have to Wax or Pluck New Growth?
Yes. While I cannot control your new growth coming back, I have now given you an amazing new template to make your maintenance much easier!
Does it Hurt?
I get mixed reviews on pain. You may experience discomfort the first pass, but we will numb you again once the skin is open. You won’t feel much after. There are many topical anesthetics specifically developed for the permanent cosmetics procedures. I will make sure you feel as comfortable as possible during your session.
Who Can Benefit From Permanent Cosmetic Procedures?
Permanent makeup is the ideal solution for men and women of all ages. The services provided give an enhanced look to their natural features or gives them the look they are hoping to achieve. The convience of having permanent makeup would be beneficial to people who have a nonstop lifestyle or enjoy sporting activities. Permanent makeup can be especially beneficial for people with certain medical conditions. Medical conditions such as allergy to traditional cosmetics, arthritis causing unsteady hands, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or vision impairment causing adversity applying make-up. Scars, vitiligo, alopecia, or in need of aerial pigmentation after breast reconstruction may also be benefit from permanent cosmetics.
Is it Safe?
Assuming that the guidelines for sterilization and disinfection are followed, permanent cosmetics are completely safe. Professionals in the permanent cosmetic industry regularly attend Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) training on safety principals. Make sure you do your research and choose a permanent cosmetics professional who has been properly trained and is experienced in permanent cosmetics procedures. Someone you can trust and will feel comfortable with.
What If I Am Not Happy With the Results?
To some degree the permanent cosmetics procedures allow for change in color and shape. It is important to keep in mind that immediately following the procedure and during the healing process the colors will appear darker and will lighten overtime. It also takes time to become accustomed to the new look. The best approach is to have patience until your skin has fully healed. If you are still not satisfied with your result at that point, speak with your technician about available solutions. Communication between you and your technician is important in preventing you being dissatisfied with your results. Be clear about your desired look and listen to your technician’s advice. Sometimes retention with the above contraindications is still possible. Everyone’s skin is different and retains different. Color retention is very different as well. This is an ART not a science. No specific results can be guaranteed.
Would I Need a Touch-up?
Sometimes the permanent color is not perfect after the skin heals from the initial application. For that reason a follow-up visit should be scheduled to touch-up the details. The touch-up work should not be performed sooner than four weeks after the original procedure. For lips six weeks wait for the touch-up visit is advised.
How Long Will it Take for Both Makeup and Hair?
