Most frequent Questions
 
  • FAQ's
  •  

  •  

  • What is Microblading, also called 3D, 6D, micro pigmentation, hair strokes, feather touch?
 It is NOT implantation of hair or hair transplant.


  •  

  • Microblading eyebrows is a form of permanent makeup that creates natural, beautiful eyebrows with a handheld micro-blade. It’s perfect for people who have over tweezed or those who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows.
 
Microblading originated in Asia over 20 years ago and has gone by many names: eyebrow embroidery, feather touch, microstroking and even “the Japanese Method." By 2015, microblading became popular in the United States.
 
Technically, microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. But unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists apply each hairstroke with a handheld microblade. This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hairstroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client’s existing eyebrow hair. 

  •  

  • 
 

  • 
Microblading typically takes two appointments to complete. In the first appointment, the client is profiled and the eyebrows are drawn on with a waterproof pencil, so the artist and client can agree on the look. The artist then microblades the eyebrows and the client is ready to go back into the world. There is some mild scabbing and aftercare required, but your microblading should be completely healed in 30 days.
 
The second appointment is a touch up at least 30 days after the first session. This allows enough time for the ink in the epidermis to naturally slough off, and the color to settle into your skin. In the touch up appointment, the artist can see how your skin has received the ink and make any necessary corrections.
 
Sometimes a client’s skin undertones may have unexpected effects on the ink's color, and the artist may need to add color to adjust. These kind of corrections are normal with any microblading artist and an essential part of the process, as everyone’s skin is different and receives ink differently.


  • What are Powder brows?    Powder Brows are created with a tattoo Machine, are meant to create a powder look effect like powder make up. I recommend powdered brows for individuals with oily skin, mature skin, and for those wanting a soft makeup look. They are not for creating hair strokes at all and are best for clients that want a more solid looking brow or have brows but want a base color. Solid brows are similar but usually have more density.

  •  

  • What is Permanent Makeup?



  • Permanent makeup is cosmetic tattooing, a very specialized form of tattooing. There are many fancy marketing terms out there like "micro-pigmentation" and "semi-permanent" and they all mean the same thing: the tattooing of makeup. It is the art and science of implanting pigment through the epidermal layer of the skin into the upper dermal layer of the skin. The epidermis is the outer layer of skin that is visible to all and is constantly shedding and renewing itself. Due to the fact the pigment was placed into the epidermis and the upper dermal layer, the color we have chosen for you will appear a bit darker than the healed and final result. When the color in the epidermis sheds you will see a lighter softer version of the pigment through a thin veil of healed epidermal skin.


  •  

  • Is it safe?


  • Yes, if your technician/artist is following proper guidelines. Strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are followed, This includes; brand new single use sterile needles which are properly disposed of after each client, all machine parts are either disposable or sterilized after each client, gloves are new and clean for each client and changed during the procedure as needed, a new bed sheet for each client that is disposed of properly after each procedure, as well as many other precautions to insure my clients safety as well as my own. The possibility that you would have any allergies, reactions, or complications from these procedures or pigments is extremely rare, almost non-existent, especially with today's health standard. It is important for you to follow all aftercare instructions. I provide an after care kit for each client which includes your ointment and instructions.


  •  

  • 
How painful it is?


  • Most people experience some discomfort. This will vary according to each individual’s pain threshold. There are different methods available, however, to help with discomfort management, including various topical anesthetics that are specifically developed for our industry. I will discuss these methods with you to determine which one is appropriate. To put this in perspective, thousands of body art tattoos are performed annually, possibly millions.  As a rule, traditional tattoo professionals do not use any anesthetics for their tattoo procedures. Anesthetics for permanent cosmetics are more of a tattoo service luxury because of the nature of the tattoo location and the fact that permanent cosmetics falls into the beauty treatment category. I apply numbing agents to make the process as comfortable as possible. I cannot say it is pain-free because every person has a different pain tolerance. Some people have fallen asleep during the procedure, while others ask me to reapply numbing cream. The highest numbing agent I use is Lidocaine 5% being the safest percentage recommended for this procedure. 


  •  

  •  

  • 
How long does it last?


  • Permanent Makeup, however, lasts longer than most other beauty/cosmetic procedures while comparably priced. Permanent makeup will last years for some and others will need to refresh their color annually. It is my experience that although some will need to refresh their color annually it will last much longer for most. All permanent makeup fades due to the exfoliation process, this is the process of the epidermis continually shedding and regenerating itself. Permanent makeup will last longer for some and not as long for others due most importantly to lifestyle, health, and skin type. Some contributing factors that will accelerate fading are: sun exposure, using products that promote cell regeneration (Retin-A, Renova, Glycolics and Alpha Hydroxy Acids), extra oily skin which regenerates more rapidly, unhealthy skin, medications, and smoking.



  •  

  • What is a touch up, and will I need one?


  • A touch-up is an appointment that is needed most of the time to complete the procedure process. The touch-up appointment is a fine-tuning session to make any adjustments that may be needed or desired to the shape, fullness, and color and to go over any areas that may not have taken well the first time. Almost always the color implanted is not perfect the first time when healed that is why permanent makeup is almost always a two or more step process. My personal experience is that most will require one touch-up, whereas some will require a second touch-up appointment. Once in a great while I will have a client where everything healed just perfectly and a touch-up is not needed at all, rare, but it does happen. It is my opinion everyone should utilize that touch-up appointment, even if everything appears perfect. A second coat will give your procedure depth and longer life.  Everything looks better and lasts longer with a second coat so will your eyebrows, and eyeliner. I love touch-up appointments. This is where I get to look at my work and add the finishing touches to make what already looks great even better.

  •  

  • 
What is a Refresher, and do I need one?


  • If you have made the decision and the initial investment to have permanent makeup done, and then you will need periodic maintenance appointments in order to keep your eyebrows, and eyeliner, looking great. This is called a refresher. As talked about before all color fades and needs to be refreshed. A refresher appointment is usually needed every 1-8 year after the completion of the initial procedure and/or any touch-up appointment(s) that may have been needed to complete the process. Some clients require or desire annual maintenance appointments, for most, it will be much longer. There will also be a Maintenance Fee.


  •  

  • Who benefits from Permanent Cosmetics?

  • People who meet minimum age requirements and have the ability to heal properly from minor wounds can benefit from the liberating benefits of permanent cosmetics. Interest in this service spans the young to the more mature; those who desire a soft, natural enhancement to their appearance.Everyone and anyone who can identify with one any one of the following:
Poor vision or just can't see well to apply your makeup anymore.
Allergies to topical makeup or skin sensitivities.
People who wear contact lenses.
An unsteady hand or poor motor skills due to Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, or stroke survivors.
Loss of hair due to thinning or scars.
People with busy lifestyles and hectic work schedules who want to look their best all day long without having to stop, check, and reapply their makeup due to smudging or smearing. Those of you whom after a busy day want to look great for your evening without having to do a thing.
People who enjoy activities like working out at the gym, yoga, swimming, boating, hiking, biking, tennis, camping, etc., that are concerned with their eyebrows or makeup coming off. Some people even avoid activities such as these because of that concern. Through permanent makeup, I can give you the personal freedom you need to go do the activities you enjoy and look great doing it.
People suffering from Trichotillomania. I have found this disorder to be prevalent mostly in young to middle-aged women. To those of you who struggle with this disorder, I can help you. I know at times it is worse than at other times. With permanent makeup, even during those stressful times, your eyebrows and lash line can look natural and defined. Just knowing your eyebrows and lash line are going to be there despite what you may be going through will give you a great sense of peace and make life a whole lot easier.
Permanent makeup can help many different people on many different levels or it can simply give you a few extra minutes in the morning (for some of you...many extra minutes in the morning). For some, I am making a real difference and changing lives and for others it is a luxury and a matter of convenience. No matter what your reason for choosing permanent makeup...I will make sure it is one of the best decisions you have ever made for yourself.

  •  

  • How long does each procedure take?

  • The initial procedure will generally take approximately 2 to 2 ½ hours; there are records to establish; photographs to take; desired design and color to discuss; the procedure to perform; and the aftercare requirements to discuss.Follow up or color refresher procedures usually do not require the same amount of time.

  •  

  • Are Permanent Cosmetics really Permanent?

  • Permanent cosmetics procedures are considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the upper reticular part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or colorant (pigment) in general, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance referred to as color re-enhancement or color refreshing. The scientific structure of pigments and the requirement for periodic refreshing is identical to that of tinted hair color; faded material on furniture that may be located near a window and subject to sun exposure; house paint that is exposed to the sun and other environmental elements; pigment implanted in the skin may fade with time. This colorant periodic maintenance requirement is a good opportunity to reevaluate one’s color and design preferences.  While the concept of permanent, without any change, may seem like a perfectly good idea, think about how your tastes have changed over the years.  From time to time likely you have made subtle or dramatic changes in your clothing preferences, your hair color and style, and if you wear topical makeup, those colors have changed as well. The fact that most people will require periodic color refreshing of their permanent cosmetics is the opportune time to work with your technician to reevaluate your overall appearance profile and determine if any changes are appropriate. Longevity varies from person to person depending on their life style (sun exposure), the color(s) used for the permanent cosmetic procedure, and are also thought to be affected by topical products applied to the skin. 

  •  

  • What if I don’t like it?

  • Although the procedure is considered permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing color and shape to some extent, depending on the expertise of your technician. Colors will appear darker immediately following the procedure but will soften and lighten during the healing process. The healing time is different for each individual and procedure. It’s very important to realize that often the new procedure represents something somewhat different; at times color where there was no color at all or very little.  It takes time to become acclimated to a new look (very often this applies to eyebrows which were sparse and unnoticeable before the permanent cosmetic brow procedure.) Eyeliner color is more evident due to the contrast to the skin color.  Lip color can take up to six weeks to reflect the final color. Be patient. After the procedure has healed, and you are able to make an informed decision about the healed version of the procedure, the only reason you should not like your permanent cosmetics is if you chose a technician who did not work with you on design and color. How could this happen?

  •  

  • If you cannot communicate with your technician, it is possible your desires will not be realized.

  • If your technician recognizes your requests, but does not take your desires for color or design into account, you should not proceed with the procedure.

  • Don’t request eyebrow color based on your tinted scalp hair color.  That is subject to change and it may affect how you then feel about the color of your permanent cosmetic eyebrows.  Eyebrow color should be selected based on your skin undertone and the color of your eyebrow hair (if any.)

  • Conversely, most well trained technicians will not perform a procedure if the design and/or color requested by the client is not reasonable.  If your requests are turned down by one or more technicians, re-think what you are asking for.

  • Permanent cosmetics are not easily removed.  Make good decisions up front. You can enjoy the liberation permanent cosmetics provides when you do your research and choose a qualified professional that you work well with.

  •  

  • Can I still have an MRI Scan?

  • Numerous studies have shown that even for people who have large body tattoos there is little to no potential for irritation resulting from an MRI. In the rare instance where discomfort resulted, it was localized and very temporary. However, with that said, it is prudent to advise your MRI technician that you have permanent cosmetics.

AFTERCARE TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new permanent makeup. 

Begin applying a thin layer of aftercare ointment the day after the procedure 2 times a day for the following seven days.

Rinse the area gently when washing the face.

Pat dry the area after each time your shower or wash your face to remove any possible water on the area or excess of ointment.

Do not let any lotion, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during 15 days after your procedure.

Make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment with your finger or a cotton swab. 

Be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.  

 Strictly use only the provided aftercare ointment

----------------------------------

 

Do Not rub, pick, scratch, or peel the skin or the pigment at any time during the healing process.

After your service, slight redness and irritation of the area should be expected. Depending on your skin sensitivity, swelling of the area may persist. This can be remedied by applying a clean ice pack or bag of ice over the area in 10-minute intervals. Keep the area clean, free from dirt and oil.

Wash your hands with an antibacterial soap before tending to the area.

 

To prevent infection: Use Bacitracin. If discharge emits from the area, wipe it off with sterilized cotton, clean and dry it, and then reapply Antibiotic.  “DO NOT” use Antibiotic ointment if there is not infection on the area. Antibiotic will ruin the pigment on the skin.

Contact your physician if any signs or symptoms of infection develops, including, but not limited to, redness, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, elevated body temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site.

Do Not apply any healing agents to the area, as they may strip the applied pigment. 

If scaring or peeling occurs, do not pick or peel the scab.

Do Not apply makeup directly on top of the treated area for at least two weeks.

If you wear makeup around the area, remove it with water, a mild, fragrance-free soap or petroleum jelly. 

Avoid makeup removers and harsh cleansers. 

Keep your fingers and hair away from the pigmented area. 

Do not drink excessive amounts of water before bedtime, which may cause additional swelling.

Avoid eating salty foods. 

Do not perform activities that will cause excessive sweating, which may cause scab to leave a scar.  

Avoid outdoor gardening.

Avoid contact with Soil and Animals.

Stay away from excessive steam and heat (e.g., steam baths, facials) and heat (e.g., sun, hot liquids).

Follow precautions listed above for at least two weeks.

 

After reviewing your permanent cosmetic after care, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to text to 951.867.8637

 

What to expect After the first application, your permanent makeup will fade. A touch up needs to be performed between 6 to 12 weeks for Only $100.00. If the touch up is performed too soon there is a greater risk for scarring, and the skin will be more sensitive. If the touch up is after the 12 weeks an extra charge will be applied.

 

 

 

 

Swelling: Your skin’s reaction will depend on how sensitive your skin is and on your health condition. A good indication of how your skin will react to permanent makeup is to compare it with what your skin normally looks like after you receive a shot, a bug bite, a hit or cut, or have a skin irritation. Water retention or salt intake on the day of or the day before the procedure also may affect how much swelling you have. 

 

Excessive Swelling: Although rare, excessive swelling or an allergic reaction may occur. If excessive swelling occurs, you should consult your doctor. If an allergic reaction causes difficulty in breathing and/or swallowing, call 911 or go to the emergency room immediately!  **Do not discard these Aftercare Treatment Instructions until after the area has completely healed.*

 

Immediately following your procedure and for the first few days you will feel very tight and have a heavy feeling or a slight headache, the pigment will appear very dark and prominent. The area will begin to peel lightly in about 3-6 days. After the area peels, the ink will appear light or faded. This is due to excess pigment peeling off and leaving behind a layer of new granular skin cells over the pigment. The color will reappear in about 2-3 weeks as it heals. The procedure is never perfectly symmetrical; however, color and shape adjustments can be made during the touch up procedure. 

 

Healing: It is normal for approximately 25%-50% of the pigment to slough off during the first 10-20 days of the healing process. Although the area will appear to be healed, it will not be fully healed for 4-6 weeks. 

Lighter color pigments tend to fade sooner than darker pigments. Permanent cosmetics are applied to the face, which is naturally exposed to sunlight all year round. Sunlight will face the pigment, and direct sunlight will fade the pigment more rapidly.

Therefore, a touch up procedure is recommended 1 year after the preliminary procedure.

 

Touch ups will be charged depending on the time from the last procedure was performed.
