VERY IMPORTANT Microblading / Semipermanent makeup information:
Please Note: Semi-Permanent Makeup is 2-3 step process. Please check price list and take this into account before making the decision to undergo treatment. The steps are detailed below. Important: If you are a new client that has pre-existing permanent makeup or microblading from another artist, please contact me with a clear photograph of the treated area before booking to help determine if you are a candidate for additional treatments. If client failed to do this and is found unsuitable or treatment at time of consultation, they forfeit the deposit/ voucher.
1st Session During this appointment we determine your shape & color, discuss the healing process according to your skin type, and apply your first layer of pigment to the eyebrows. Your brows will appear darker for 7-10 days while they are healing. Lighting and sometimes dramatic fading can occur during this period as the skin is conditioning to receive pigment. A 2nd application will be necessary 4-8 weeks later.
2nd Session- The touch up At your second appointment (4-8 weeks after your initial treatment) we will reapply the color to your original strokes and further perfect the brow shape and color where needed. If dramatic fading has occurred at your first session, the second session will now take much better in the skin. If a third session is needed, it can be done 4-8 weeks later to further reinforce color.
3rd Session- Additional touch up if needed Additional sessions are not always necessary, however they are most common for those with problematic oily or dry skin, have little/no natural brow hair present, or did not follow their Pre-Care/After-Care as directed.
After all the necessary touch ups were done the results should last 12-18 months. In order to keep your semi permanent makeup looking perfect, a yearly colour boost appointment is recommended. These appointments are charged at full price.
- Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion.
- One voucher per person.
- The printed voucher should be surrendered prior to treatment
- Offer is subject to patient suitability for treatment.
- Voucher is non transferable and cannot be exchanged for money.
