What are the benefits of Ombré Powder Brows?
Our goal is to create eyebrows that will best enhance your natural beauty. It will save you time getting ready, boost confidence, be waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, and low maintenance. Absolutely great for those days you're running late, gym sessions, beach vacations, or water activities without having to worry about your brows smudging off.
How long does Ombré PowderBrows last?
Ombre powder Brows can last between one and three years. The variation in time is determined by lifestyle, sun exposure, skin type, and desired outcome. Someone with an oilier skin type tends to experience results that fade quicker compared to someone with a drier skin type.
Is Ombré Powder Brows permanent?
Ombre powder brow is a type of permanent makeup procedure. In some cases if no touch-ups are made, they may fade over time, however, there are no guarantees that the PMU will be completely gone.
How often will I need a touch-up?
After your initial session and second session, 6-8 weeks later, is fully complete, you can get a color boost (touch-up) every 1-3 years. Although"Color Boost" is recommended annually to maintain its shape and color, it varies for everyone. This can depend on varying factors such as lifestyle, skin type & routine, and environmental factors. Please allow your PMU to fade about 50% before considering a color boost to avoid oversaturation and potential scarring. If you are unsure, you may send me photos and we can decide together if a color boost is necessary at that time or not.
Does the procedure hurt?
Pain and sensitivity vary depending on the person's tolerance to pain. A topical numbing gel is applied to ease any discomfort. Please note that you may experience more sensitivity around or during your menstrual cycle.
How long will the procedure take?
From start to finish, it can take 2-3 hours per appointment. It is important to the artist and the client that both are satisfied with the shaped outcome of the eyebrows. Please allow extra time just in case.
What should I expect during the procedure?
Consent forms are to be filled out digitally 24 hours before your appointment. Please prepare to spend 2-3 hours on your appointment. We will do a quick consult with the client about their eyebrow shape and map their eyebrows according to their facial features and enhance their natural eyebrow shape. I will NOT begin tattooing their eyebrows unless we both agree on the shape. Once we both agree on the shape and color, I will then begin tattooing their eyebrows. Depending on the client's skin, some take inks faster than others. Before and after photos will be taken for documentation and/or marketing purposes.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Before you leave, we will schedule your second session and go over aftercare instructions with the client as well as give them an aftercare kit to take home. It is important to follow aftercare instructions. Due to the topical anesthetic, a white halo may appear around the brow area which will disappear in about an hour or so after the appointment. Redness and swelling are completely normal and will subside within 1-2 days. Clients' brows will appear darker and bigger, but that is only temporary. As their brows heal, they will fade 40-60%. Brows will start to peel and flake. DO NOT pick at the brows. The client may resume normal activities after 2 weeks or when the client is completely healed.
How long will it take to heal?
The healing process will vary for each client. On average, healing can take up to 14 days. But also keep in mind you may heal before or after 14 days also. The color will resurface back into the skin around 4 weeks.
Can I apply eyebrow makeup on top of my Ombré Powder Brows?
Yes. Ombré Powder Brows does not replace makeup! Please make sure your eyebrows are completely healed first before you apply any makeup to your eyebrows. You will have an eyebrow guide when you get this procedure done making eyebrow makeup application easy.
If my eyebrows were done by another artist, can I book a color boost with you?
No, your service will be considered a new client service, Cover-up/Correction. Not all previous eyebrow permanent makeup can be worked on and the results cannot be guaranteed. We require those who have previous work to seek my approval so I can better assess them and see if we are able to work over the old eyebrow tattoo. Please HERE to see the requirements.
What is saline lightening/removal and what do you use?
Li-FT® Saline Lightening Solution is a non-chemical, non-acid, high salt-based, fruit seed extract saline tattoo lightening product that is so effective it can lighten a tattoo or permanent makeup procedure to the point it is no longer visible. Li Pigments chose very particular types of natural, clean salts in combination with each other in extremely specific percentages to achieve ultimate lightening and results. These special salts are then ground down to an exceptionally fine powder eliminating any grit and allowing quick and easy implantation and absorption.
What to expect after the procedure?
The client's skin may look red and/or irritated. You will not see any significant lightening yet.
How does this procedure work?
Salt/Saline removal works on the theory of “Osmosis”. Osmosis is a process by which molecules of a solvent (water) tend to pass through a semi-permeable membrane (skin) from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one. Introducing a high concentration of salt water to the dermis where the pigment resides, creates the process of Osmosis. Water in the cells beneath the pigment contains lower amounts of salt and water will rise to the area containing higher concentrations of salt. This achieves the same amount of concentration on each side of the membrane...called Equalization. Equalization forces the pigment from the dermal layer up to the epidermis by Osmotic pressure. This is a natural process to become equal to the higher concentration of salt and water. The pigment becomes trapped in the scab and when the scabs fall off some of the pigment goes with it.
What is the difference between Saline and Laser?
Laser pushes pigment back down into the body to be removed by the lymph and waste system, saline moves the pigment up and out of the skin via the scabbing process.
Laser notoriously does not remove white (titanium dioxide). Saline is not color restricted so it can be highly effective in removing all colors including white.
Saline is also not depth specific, meaning it will target and start lifting pigment/ink no matter the depth that it resides.
Risks of laser are, but not limited to, possible hair loss and/or scarring.
Laser cannot be used on lip or eyeliner tattoo. Saline is safe and effective to use on poor lip or eyeliner tattoo.
What is the difference between Saline and Laser?
There is no exact number or guarantees. This will depend on many different variables:
The pigment being removed
How deep it was implanted
How saturated the pigment is
Where the tattoo is located
The clients skin type
The client's own healing process
The clients aftercare
How much pigment needs to be removed
Multiple sessions is expected to be done before seeing results. Sessions are scheduled every 8 weeks to allow proper healing of the skin.
Inkless Stretch Mark Revision
What is Inkless Stretch Mark Revision?
The goal for Inkless Stretch Mark Revision is to improve tone, texture and color of stretch marks. This inkless technique consists of using a rotary machine to create micro wounds while implanting a custom-mixed serum made up of vitamins and oils to stimulate a natural healing response to promote collagen and elastin production.
When and where can this procedure be done?
Inkless Stretch Mark Revision can be done anywhere on the body except the face. ISR can be done anytime after the stretch mark has healed and is not red, pink, or purple indicating it is still healing. Usually, stretch marks often take a year to heal. Unlike ink camouflage for stretch marks, you don't need to be untanned for ISR.
Some common areas for stretch marks are:
Calf & behind the knees
How long does this last?
Given that the you don't gain or lose a significant amount of weight and remains in good/similar health as when being treated the benefits of treatment, Inkless Stretch Mark Revision can last for many years.
Does this procedure work for all skin tones?
Yes, it does. However, Fitzpatrick 4/5/6 will require a test patch to determine if excessive melanin response occurs resulting in hyperpigmentation of the treatment area. Due to what is typically a strong melanin response Fitz 4/5/6 clients may require fewer treatments, however, we need to ensure the response is not so strong that hyperpigmentation occurs.
How many sessions will I need?
There is no pre-determined number of sessions. We won't know what that might look like for you until we actually start seeing the progress. We will be monitoring each client case-by-case. You and I will be in contact throughtout your healing process to discuss the if additional sessions are needed.
