Their is a service and technique that caters to all skin types, skin tones and personal preferences. If you are looking to simplify your life or just want an amazing set of eyebrows, explore and enjoy!
MANUAL HAND HELD TOOL METHOD
Microblading is a form of tattooing. Unlike a regular tattoo, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a tattoo gun. Unlike tattoos that go 7 layers deep into the skin and turn out red or green after a while, the semi-permanent hair stroke method is deposited only 2 layers under your skin.
OMBRE POWDER BROWS
ALL MACHINE SHADING
Ombre powder brows is like having a semi-permeant, long lasting brow tint. This method of PMU is different from microblading because the pigment is implanted under the skin in pixels giving it the "powder" effect. This service can be done as bold or as soft as the client desires. Perfect for all skin types and leaves you with perfected brows for up to 2 years depending on skin type, overall health and with great aftercare.

The Hella Beat Brow service is the like getting the best of both worlds! Natural manual hair strokes accompanied with custom machine shading work is the perfect service for someone who wants a personalized brow service catered to their everyday routine and personal needs.
THE ANSWERS YOU NEED
DOES IT HURT?
Everyone's tolerance is different. I administer a topical numbing cream that is an FDA approved solution that features 5% lidocaine. It provides a numbing sensation within 20 minutes and is backed by extensive research and development. Some people describe the treatment as a scratching sensation with little to no pain. The numbing treatment will not make this service completely painless but will make it more comfortable. For women, you will be more sensitive if you are hormonal or on your menstrual. Plan your appointments accordingly.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
The standard healing time is 7-10 or 7-14 days after the initial treatment depending on the service. Some people may take longer to heal and this can be due to the clients skin type or how well they followed aftercare instructions. The first 48 hours are the most critical because during this time, you are susceptible to infection. Be sure to keep the area clean and refrain from touching, wearing makeup, sweating and submerging brows in water for the duration of the healing period.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED A TOUCH UP?
After the initial treatment, clients typically return in 6 months to a year for a touch up when micrbladed.Results can last up to two years with shading depending on skin type and overall health. Although rare, some clients may need to be seen for a "Balancing Appointment" 4-6 with microblading or 6-8 weeks after treatment with shading to fill in some spots that didn't take during the healing process. This appointment is included in the total service cost. No guarantee can be made that a specific client will benefit or heal the same as another from this procedure. Generally, the results are excellent but it very much depends on your skin texture, oiliness your health and proper aftercare.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW BROWS AFTER TREATMENT?
Keep your face directly out of the shower stream and do your best to keep your face as dry as possible. Also keep showers brief, as too much steam can harm the brows. Avoid saunas, direct sun exposure, tanning beds.
When washing your face, be sure not to splash water onto your face. Instead, use a washcloth or disposable cleansing wipe to wash AROUND the brows.
Use product free blotting paper 3 times a day for normal skin, and 6 times a day for oily skin directly on top of the brows and then the surrounding area for the first 10 days as well.
Do not apply any ointments, creams, oils or lotions on the microbladed area. This is key to achieve the best results!
No heavy exercising or sweating for at least 7-10 days post procedure. If you want the best color and detail retention, avoiding heavy physical activity is crucial.
After 7-10 days, please begin to wash your face and brows normally if most of the peeling process has been completed. Please cleanse with a gentle face wash.
Once completely healed, I advise applying a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure will cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. Generally, the results are great but it very much depends on your health, skin type and oiliness.
WHO IS NOT IDEAL FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
Someone who has Keloid prone skin meaning, can form a keloid on any part of body.
Someone with severely oily skin. Pigment will look more solid than like hair strokes. touch ups may be needed more frequently.
People with Diabetes type 1 and 2 are prone to slow healing and infection and can not receive this service.
Current Chemotherapy patients consult with your doctor. Medication associated with your condition may cause pigment to not retain properly.
If you have preexisting tattoo work on your brows or shading, Microblading is not an ideal service to touch up your work. The strokes will not show over preexisting shading or tattoo work.
Auto immune diseases due to healing and medication. Consult with your doctor.
Someone with Chronic Epilepsy or Parkinsons cannot receive this service, no exceptions.
No Blood thinners, or heavy bleeders. Pacemakers or major heart problems. Must have Cardioligist clearance if not on blood thinners.
Someone who has Thyroid issues and currently taking medication may cause pigment to not retain properly and will require more frequent touch ups.
If you are pregnant or nursing (due to the numbing Treatment)
Currently using or has used Accutane. Since Accutane alters your epidermis and weakens your immune system, it is best to wait when your skin is fully healed (6-12 months after Accutane is completed) and your immune system is strong.
Please note: You may receive the service with the clear understanding that pigment may not retain properly and you may need more touch ups more frequently than others due to pigment fading more rapidly.
