What should I do to prepare for my procedure? There’s no prep required. Leaving your eyebrows alone for a week (no tweezing, waxing or otherwise removing the hair) is preferred. What happens during the procedure? I will evaluate the most suitable pigments for you, taking into consideration your skin tone and personality. I will create the desired shape using a conventional makeup pencil so you can see the intended result. Once the shape, design and color have all been agreed upon and photographed, the pigment will be carefully implanted into the skin. The aim of the treatment is to give a natural make up appearance that perfectly complements your skin tone using the right combination of pigments to enhance your natural features. Depending upon the size of the area, the procedure itself will take about two and a half hours. A complimentary retouch procedure is required 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment. A period of 4-6 weeks rest between treatments is required to ensure the skin is fully healed, both on the surface and below and to see what and if any improvements need to be done. During healing, it's normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up. What do I do after the procedure? You are advised to keep the skin clean and dry: that means no swimming, sweating or otherwise getting the area wet; no tanning or prolonged sun exposure; no picking or peeling the tattoo.
How long does it last? The longevity is dependent upon certain factors, but you can expect your makeup to last about 2 years. Because the color will gradually fade, a refreshing treatment is recommended every 6 – 12 months to keep your makeup looking as good as new.
Does it hurt? No. A topical anesthetic cream will be used to numb the area before and during the procedure.
What is the recovery time? You can carry on with your day as normal immediately after treatment. There may be some swelling and redness but this generally subsides within 24 to 48 hours. As the skin heals, the treated area will form a protective crust over the forthcoming days and the final healed result of the treatment will be about 40% lighter than the immediate result. Recovery time is 5-10 days.
What kind of pigments are used? LI pigments, manufactured in Las Vegas, USA. All the colors are iron-oxide based and have been FDA approved. A wide range of colors is available.
What if I don’t like it? There are several things I can do. Your makeup can be modified to a point. I will work with you until you are satisfied with your results.
Can you guarantee your work? No. I can guarantee that your face is important to me and that I will act in accordance with my experience and expertise to give you my absolute best. I can guarantee that I will strive to make you gratified and content every time. But there are no guarantees in this industry. Please think long and hard before you decide to go for it. This is a very big deal and should be treated as such.

To achieve a natural looking 3D hair stroke effect, pigment is implanted in the shape of tiny hair strokes to mimic your natural hair growth. Following the direction of your hair growth allows the simulated hairs to sit in harmony with your existing brow. These hairs can be tightly compact for a neater brow or spread slightly further apart for a sparse, less defined effect.
Ombre brows is the process of a blending of color and progressive darkening it. Typically, to appear bolder, the brow is made to look light at the upper edges and graduate to darker color at the arch. The soft color transition defines the brows, but adds depth. Ombre brows is the next generation procedure. It is ideal for the clients who want brighter healed effect than strokes technique.
