Ombre' Brows

Please Read the following information below for microshading, nanoblading or lip blush/neutralization:

Ombre' Powdered Brows is the newest shading technique.  This method creates pixelated dots to mimic powder filled brows with no harsh front or outline.  This shadow technique is minimally invasive and last longer.  Powdered brows help clients achieve more of a powdered or ombre' look instead of individual hair strokes.  Powdered brows have a soft makeup look and work great with oily or mature skin. 

This is a 2-appointment procedure. The touch-up appointment is a separate cost and is booked in 8 weeks.. Once you have had your 1st touch up, you should not need another one for 1-2 years depending on your skin type.


What is a contraindication?

A contraindication is a condition or factor that either renders a medical treatment inadvisable under any circumstances or increases the risks involved in carrying out a medical procedure. Absolute Contraindication: hemophilia, blood thinners on prescription. Relative Contraindications: diabetic on the needle (increased risk of infection & slow to heal), allergies, blood thinners like Aspirin or Vitamin E

You know the state of your health better than anyone. If you have any medical issues that you feel might be a contraindication, then we suggest you get clearance from your doctor. Below are some contraindications that can alter your results and/or put you in danger.

- Patients who have epilepsy, diabetes, hemophilia or a hart disease of any kind should have a physician’s approval prior to any tattooing procedure.

- PREGNANT or NURSING - Although there are no medical evidence that tattooing would have any effect on an unborn child, we don't know for sure. So we suggest you err on the side of caution and come back after the baby is born and you are no longer nursing.


- ON ACCUTANE, RETIN A - Topical steroids thin the skin. Depending on the stage your skin is at, it may be too fragile to undergo procedure. You should get clearance from your doctor before considering permanent make-up. You must be off Retin-A or Retinols 7 days prior to appointment and avoid or around the area for 30 days after. If used before 30 days, it can cause the pigments to fade prematurely.

- ON PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH MEDICATION OR TREATMENTS that affect the dermal layer of the skin can affect the permanent make-up.

- ON ANTICOAGULANTS (blood thinners) long-term use of aspirin, ibuprofen and some herbs reduce clotting time resulting in increased bleeding and bruising, which will affect the implantation of pigment as well as increase the healing time.

- DIABETIC -If you are insulin dependent, you are not a candidate for permanent make-up. Healing could be compromised and take longer than average. Otherwise, if your doctor feels your condition is under control you may request a letter stating that you are able to undergo cosmetic tattooing.

- GLAUCOMA -You may not have eyeliner. Increased intra ocular pressure combined with pressure placed on the eye to apply eyeliner could be damaging. It is important to have this condition under control and/or refer to your physician for further consent to the application of eyeliner.

- HAVE ANY OTHER HEART CONDITIONS - uncontrolled high blood pressure and poor general health would be special concern, you will need to see your physician and discuss the procedure to gain pre-approval.

- HERPES SIMPLEX - People who get fever blisters and/or cold sores may experience an outbreak after procedures. It's imperative that you discuss the procedure with your physician before the procedure and receive proper instructions how to prevent an outbreak post procedure. Most physicians will offer a prescription for Zovirax or Valtrex to take prior to and after procedure.

- KELOID OR HYPERTROPHIC SCARRING - Persons with tendencies for this type of scarring have the same risk with tattoo also. The risk is mainly in the torso area, however, we may decide to do a patch test to insure that you do not scar in this manor.

- If there are any blemishes, pimples, active cold sores, irritation of the skin of any kind, moles or other skin imperfections in or around the area of the procedure, we will NOT be able to do the procedure until the blemish or area of concern is gone or the mole is removed and healed.

Before your appointment 

  1. 24 hours before the appointment, do not consume alcohol or caffeine
  2. 24 hours before the appointment, do not take Advil or other blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin, niacin, or vitamin E unless medically necessary If you get Botox injection, it should be done 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the procedure.
  3. Avoid booking during your menstrual cycle. It will increase your pain.
  4. No waxing near procedure area, tanning or tinting 3 days before No or very very minimal makeup on your face.
  5. Be prepared to see the result of permanent makeup quite dark (intense) at first. Don’t worry it will fade 30-50%.

Before Your Appointment

To prevent any complications related to your overall well-being and to ensure your skin is in the best possible condition, please review the suggestions and requirements below.

- Avoid all alcohol and caffeine 24 hrs. before the procedure to prevent excessive bleeding.

- Please be advised that women on or near their menstrual cycle have a tendency to bleed a bit more during the procedure than women who are not. In addition, numbing agents also seem to not take as well to women who are menstruating. If you wish to avoid this please let us know.

- To prevent excessive bleeding, avoid taking blood thinners like aspirin, niacin, vitamin E, or ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure. Tylenol or acetaminophen are great substitutes for pain relievers.

- Avoid waxing or tinting 3 days before the procedure.

- No Botox/Filler treatments should be done 3 weeks prior or 4 weeks after the procedure.

- No chemical peels 60 days before or after the procedure. Chemical peels will induce your skin to peel prematurely and (brows will peel quicker due to chemicals traveling under the skin)

- No Retinols/Retin-A, anti-aging/acne creams, or serums containing acids as these will fade brows prematurely if used during the first 30 days in your healing process.

- Avoid sweating excessively the day of your procedure and during the first week during the healing process.

- Avoid heavy sunlight or UV lights 3 days before your procedure. If you do tan regularly, skin should be fully healed the day of the procedure.

During Your Appointment

The average appointment usually takes about one and a half to two hours from beginning to end. The steps for the appointment are listed as follows:

Pictures - Before and after pictures are a great way to see your brow transformation, so we snap a few quick pictures of your eyebrows before getting started and then a few more after the procedure.

Consultation - Discuss colors, shape and the problem areas you wish to address. There is heavy emphasis placed on understanding your expectations and helping you understand what results are possible.

Brow Shaping - Shaping eyebrows correctly is the foundation to getting perfect eyebrows. Using what is called the golden ratio, your facial features, and some measuring, we draw the perfectly shaped eyebrows for your face directly on your skin for you to see.

Approval - Before moving forward, the artist ensures you are completely happy with your brow shape and expectations of the procedure. Please speak up during this time if you wish to make any adjustments or if you have any questions or concerns.

Numbing - A topical anesthetic is applied to ensure pain is not an issue after the outline has been established. Most clients feel little to no pain during the procedure. For those super sensitive clients, we offer an additional anesthetic during the procedure to ensure that you are comfortable.

Paperwork (is what you filled out during scheduling) - While your skin is numbing you’ll review consent forms, followed by reviewing a brief medical history to ensure the procedure will not interfere with your overall well-being.


Post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. We recommend keeping the area clean for the first 3 days and apply A&D ointment. Gently wash by patting the area using a wet cotton ball, pat dry and apply a THIN layer of the barrier cream that has been supplied to you. Keep it out of the sun throughout the healing process. Do not apply ANY cosmetics in this area and avoid sweating for AT LEAST 10-14 days. Keep the area clean and let it breathe!

The following must be AVOIDED 14 days post-microblading procedure:

- You may shower or bathe normally, but avoid getting any soaps, shampoos or other cleansers on the treated area for the first five days as they can be detrimental to the bonding process that must take place for the pigment to stabilise in the dermis.

- Soaking your face underwater in a bathtub or allow the shower to spray directly in your face.

- Increased sweating

- Swimming

- Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi

- Sun tanning or salon tanning

- Using Vaseline, Neosporin or other petroleum based products while healing.

- Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment.

IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.

- UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading

- Apply any anti-acne products (e.g. Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Proactiv, etc.) or lightening creams (skin bleaching creams) such as hydroquinone to the treated area while healing.

- Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck

- Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris

- Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab.

Healing Process

TRUST THE PROCESS- Healed results are the most beautiful and natural looking way to enhance eyebrows, but the path leading to those anticipated healed results can be a little daunting. In addition to following the aftercare instructions, understanding the healing process is essential to avoid undue worry and stress while going through the different stages of healing. Please note everyone heals differently so the timeline below is just a general guideline.

DAY 1:

- Eyebrows look amazing immediately after your appointment

- Pigment gradually gets darker throughout the first day


- Pigment reaches darkest level on day two

- Light scabbing develops where microblading strokes or microshading occurred. IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.


- Scabbing from begin to peel and flake off, sometimes revealing no definite, visible color in skin


- Pigment in skin continues to oxidize and begin to reappear in color intended from the beginning, but some strokes come back looking patchy

WEEK 4-6:

- Eyebrows fully healed and ready to undergo the finishing effects of the touch-up appointment

- Beautiful eyebrow enhancement/transformation is complete after final touch-up
