     Permanent makeup made its fashionable debut back in 80's, but has progressed greatly since then and undergone a complete transformation in applied technique and skill.  Today one of the newest techniques is microblading, especially in the United States. Many are introduced to permanent brows by this technique. At Luxe Brow Studio I have dropped this service from my menu because I do not like how it ages. Instead I perform the powder brow technique which is done with a rotary pen machine. The powder brow technique is more gentle on the skin, for every skin type (especially oily and mature skin type), and it lasts longer! Have a look through the gallery to see the amazing before & after photos. 

A beautiful brow can be quite transformative. Finding that perfect brow that compliments your facial features is my goal!  I will find the best look based on the desired look and one that best compliments you!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

With micropigmentation high quality pigment is gently deposited under the skin by digital tattoo machine.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Procedural times do vary depending on the service (brows, eyeliner, lips) and whether it's a new application or a touch up. Most services are between 1 and 3 hours. Two sessions are typically required. The initial session is about 2-3 hours and the touch up is much shorter. The touch up session is scheduled 4-6 weeks after the initial session and it is important to added pigment in the areas where it may not have taken well.  It is important to consider that the final result isn’t determined until you have had the touch up and have gone through the full healing period of 4-6 weeks post second session.  

IS IT PAINFUL?

The treatment can be a little uncomfortable for those who are more sensitive.  

However, topical numbing agents are applied during the treatment to keep this to a minimum to where it is completely comfortable for our clients.

IS IT SAFE?

Completely. New, disposable, and sterile implements are used every time for each client and all tools and machines are completely cleaned each time.

The type of pigments used are a high quality line of permanent makeup pigments that have been tested by the CTL. (Click here to learn more about CTL's testing and standards for pigments & inks). In addition, these pigments have passed the Resolution ResAP (2008) which currently is the most stringent test on the market for tattoo and permanent makeup products. 

HOW PERMANENT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?

All micropigmentation or permanent makeup procedures are considered permanent because pigments are deposited below the dermal layer and cannot be washed off like topical makeup.  Many factors play into how long the permanent makeup will last.  Aspects such as aftercare, skin type, amount of sun exposure, use of anti aging products and treatments and the shade of the pigment used, and the technique used to implement the pigment will last.  Taking these factors into account, your new eyebrows can last any where from 6 months -5 years depending on the pigment type used and the technique. Yearly top ups are required there after.

HOW SOON CAN I GO BACK TO WORK?

Down-time is minimal. Swelling and redness are typically mild and most people can return to their normal activities within 24 hours.
