Let's Talk Brows
Microblading or 3D Hair Strokes is a relatively new method done with a manual handtool. It is considered to be semi-permanent with the manual handtool. You can make it a permaent tattoo by recieveing touch up at least once a year.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present.
People suffering from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from 3D Hair Strokes, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them..
The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade slightly over a two week period.
Pain is very minimal, topical numbing cream is applied to numb treatment area.
The results can last anywhere up to 1 + years with the manual handtool depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment for any permanent cosmetic procedure.
About 90% of clients only need one session, but everyone's skin holds pigment differently. A second session may be needed.
We advise all clients to read and fully understand these terms and conditions prior to making an appointment.
Any Permanent/ Semi-permanent make up is a form of cosmetic tattooing where pigment is placed in the dermal/epidermal layer of the tissue. Retention of the pigment is out of our control, as it is determined by the patient’s skin type, how well they follow after-care procedures, as well as their immune system, therefore no specific result can be 100% guaranteed.
As a general rule and as explained, the client should expect to book a maintenance appointment every 6-8 months. With that said, some factors will affect fading more quickly for some versus others. These factors include, but are not limited to the following:
Not taking proper care of procedure area after treatment.
Sunbathing or using sunbeds.
Using Retin A creams, or any other products that contain AHA’s, Glycolic or Vitamin A.
Certain skin treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Certain skin conditions and or excessively dry/oily skin types.
Specific medications which are known to cause increased fading.
Excessive use of alcohol.
