What is the difference between Microblading and Powder/Ombre brows?

Microblading is done manually with a blade inserted handtool to create hair-like strokes for a very natural look. Shading is done with a machine and can be as natural or as bold as you’d like. Shading offers more of a dense, powder make-up look. Ready to book? You can schedual your microblading or powder brow appointment here.

How long is the healing process?

The healing time varies per client, the scabbing process should end around day 10 and sometimes up to date 14. Through this time it is important to avoid excessive sweating or wetting your brows. Sweating will cause a pigment color change as well as cause natural pigment removal. Once the flakes/scabs fall off naturally, you can apply make up, however, remember the skin is still healing under the surface. The healing process is complete 30 days after the service.

What is brow lamination and how does it work?

The process typically involves brushing the brow hairs upward and applying a solution, followed by a wrapping technique to hold the hairs in place. After it sets, the solution is neutralized, and the brows are brushed and trimmed to the desired shape. The result is a neat, groomed look that lasts for several weeks, as the hairs stay in place due to the reshaped bonds. This treatment is ideal for those with unruly brows or sparse areas, as it can help create a fuller, more defined look without the need for makeup or additional styling. Ready to book?

can I swim or workout after getting my eyebrows done?

We recommend avoiding water, sweat, and intense physical activity for 24-48 hours after getting your brows done, whether it's microblading, powder brows, or brow lamination. This is to give the pigment time to settle into the skin and to prevent the pigment from fading. After the initial 24-48 hour period, you can gradually return to your normal activities, but it's still important to be cautious and avoid excessive sweating or rubbing of the brows, as this can negatively affect the longevity of the treatment.

Can I wear makeup after getting my brows done?

After the initial 24-48 hour period, you can return to wearing makeup, but it's important to be cautious and to avoid rubbing or smudging the brows. It's also important to choose gentle, non-irritating makeup products, as harsh or alcohol-based products can affect the longevity of the treatment.
