Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does it hurt?
Most people most find it to be relatively painless while some people experience minor discomfort during the microshading process . Numbing cream is also used during appointments to help if a client is more sensitive. Client's describe the feeling as "annoying but bearable" and I often hear "oh, thats all?" once I start the procedure. Don't worry!

Q: What exactly is microshading?
Microshading, also known as Powder Brows and Ombre Brows, is a semi-permanent makeup procedure whereby shading is added along the eyebrow to enhance, reshape, or create a fuller looking appearance to the brows. The procedure entails the use of a cosmetic tattoo gun and needle, which is dipped into a pigment that has been matched to natural hair color and skin tone.
Q: What is the difference between Microshading and Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure using a tiny blade and a hand tool to create hair like strokes that mimic real hair. Microshading (also known as Powder Brows and Ombre Brows) is a less invasive semi permanent service done using a needle to create a more filled-in, makeup looking, ombre brow instead of strokes. Microshading lasts significantly longer than microblading and is becoming the more popular option of the two.
Q. Do you offer MicroBlading? / What are Combination Brows?
I do not offer full Microblading BUT I do offer Combination Brows. Combination brows are MicroShading + Nano strokes combined. Nano strokes are similarto MicroBlading strokes but it is done with the machine instead of a tiny blade as mentioned above.
Q: How long does the appointment take?
The first appointment takes about 2 hours to complete. Your 8-10 week touch up appointment will take about 1 hour to complete.
Q: How often will I need to return for a touch-up?
The process consists of two main appointments, the first appointment and the touch up appointment scheduled 8-10 weeks after. After the 8-10 week touch up I suggest scheduling yearly touch ups or "color boost" appointments.
Q: How long will my brows last?
Skin types, age and daily activity play a major role in the longevity of your semi-permanent brows application. Most eyebrows application will last 1-2 years, while others may last longer. Please note that since the pigment is not implanted as deep as a traditional tattoo, your pigment will fade gradually until it eventually fades away. For your brows application to remain sharp, I suggest scheduling a touch-up appointment yearly.
Q: Why do I have to wait 8-10 weeks to get my first touch-up?
The perfection session is done at 8-10 weeks to allow the skin optimal time to heal and reduce the chance of infection, scarring, and other wound related complications.
