If you do want to go ahead with the treatment, that will be the deposit for your booking.
FEATHERING MACHINE BROWS | 2.5HRS
Transform sparse brows to full and feathery. This technique mimics and shadows the individual hairs for a super soft and textured finish. The retention and healing results from nano feathering tend to be better in comparison to microblading. Precision and accuracy improves because of the smaller needle, allowing for more natural looking results. Includes: 6 week touchup appointment. Best suited to brows that have existing and very little gaps and not suitable for oily skin types.
POWDER MACHINE BROWS | 2.5 hrs
Defined brows with a powder fade towards the fronts. Once healed in 1-2 weeks the brows appear soft, natural and powdery looking with a killer fade. Whether you are looking for a light soft shading or show-stopping bold brows, it can be customised according to your desire. Includes: 6 week touchup appointment. Highly recommended for all skin types an brow types.
COMBINATION MACHINE BROWS | 2.5 hrs
This technique combines Feathering with the Powder effect to create a blend of soft and feathery meets added definition. This method is also a better option for an individual with oily skin as microblading alone is not best suited for oily skin types. The constant oil production can cause the hair strokes to heal powdery and diffused. Includes: 6 week touchup appointment.
Most frequent questions and answers
Much like microblading, a good candidate should not have a serious health and skin condition. As a precaution, we do not perform the procedure on pregnant or nursing women. Fortunately, this technique is fantastic for all skin types, including oily.
It can last from one to three years. The retention depends on a number of factors, including skin type, lifestyle, health condition, sun exposure, et cetera.
The pain level varies from person to person. A medical grade topical anesthetic will be used for numbing before and during the procedure to make the clients feel comfortable and as pain-free as possible.
At times, I also mix colours to best match the client’s desire, skin tone and brow colour. Some colours fade quicker than others. The lighter the pigment, the faster it will fade. For blondes, in particular, it is best to go a little darker for better retention. All colour corrections are usually addressed at touch up appointment 6 weeks after initial appointment.
To avoid any risk of harming your skin, it is encouraged to strictly follow the guidelines given to you including precare and aftercare for the health of your skin and to avoid any chances of infection.
For best-healed results, the client should avoid working out, sweating, any makeup around the brows for at least two weeks. Most importantly, it is important not to pick at the scabs/dry skin. The scabs need to shed naturally. It is also recommended to stay out of heavy sun exposure and avoid any facial treatments throughout the healing process. After the procedure, the client will be given an aftercare ointment to be applied two to three times a day after washing the treated area. It is very important to keep your newly shaded brows as clean as possible.
Immediately following the procedure, your brows will appear darker and bolder. This is the initial healing process and it can last up to a week or a little longer. During the second week, you can expect some scabbing or flaking of the skin in pieces. It is very important not to pick or peel at the scabs as you need to allow the scabs/dry skin to come off naturally on its own to prevent scarring and premature pigment loss. Unfortunately, the scabbing is not the most glamorous stage while healing. The scabbing period varies from person to person. Generally, all scabs are shed approximately by the end of the second week. Once the scabs have fallen off, the brows will appear softer and lighter. The complete healing process takes about six weeks at which time the true color and density of the brows are clearly revealed. During the follow-up touch-up, adjustments can be made.
The follow-up touch-up is usually within six to eight weeks. It is highly recommended that the client do the touch-up as the healing results cannot be guaranteed. During the touch-up, we can add more definition and/or density and make other adjustments as necessary.
