My name is Kaie, and I have been a permanent makeup artist for 8 years. I attended school at BioTouch in Vancouver BC.

if your tired of constantly using pencil, powder,gel,dye,or a stencil to fill in your thin or sparse eyebrows, then microblading \ permanent makeup is an increasingly popular cosmetic tattooing technique that can partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the application of hair-like strokes using cosmetic tattoo pigments. The result is full,even,and smudge proof eyebrows.

Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery or microstroking, is a form of natural-looking ,semi-permanent tattoo artistry that is perfect for reconstructing ,defining, extending,or filling-in over plucked or sparse eyebrows. Drawing individual hair-like strokes in the brow region can mimic the look of natural brow hair. It is a form of permanent makeup since it is implanted under the dermis (the inner layer of the skin).

Microblading/permanent makeup including eyeliner and lip tattoo is an excellent semi-permanent makeup solution for:

  • Anyone who would like to enhance their eyebrows without having to apply makeup everyday.
  • Full Lips: $600
  • Anyone who has difficulty applying makeup due to poor eyesight or dexterity issues.
  • Anyone with thin,sparse eyebrows due to over-tweezing or various health issues.
  • Anyone who is regularly active and does not want to worry about sweating off their makeup.

Pricing:

  • Eyebrows: $450 – $500
  • Full Lips; $600
  • Lip Liner: $450 – $500
  • Eyeliner, Top or Bottom: $350 – $400
  • Top and Bottom Eyeliner: $400 – $500

Like with regular tattoos, clients may feel a slight sting each time the needle penetrates the skin. Clients can expect to feel some minor discomfort, but the process is relatively painless. Prior to the treatment, topical numbing cream will be applied to the eyebrow area to minimize discomfort and follow with an application of liquid anesthetic. Microblading permanent makeup results can last up to 3 years. However, as with many tattoo pigment, fading can and usually does occur over time.

Microbladed brows often require periodic maintenance which is referred to as color re-enhancement or color refreshing. While cosmetic tattoo pigment remains in the dermis after application, the longevity of the tattoo can be influenced by several factors such as the amount pigment used, color of pigment used, skin color of treatment area, sun exposure , and the use of topical products applied to the skin.

Some clients may experience itching, redness, or mild swelling in the week following the treatment. The microblading process treatment begins with a consultation between the esthetician and the client to discuss the desired appearance of the eyebrows, the color of pigment to be used, and the overall procedure. In a follow-up appointment either immediately following the consultation or at a later date, the esthetician will draw in the desired shape of the brow with removable pencil and then will apply a topical anesthetic to temporarily numb the skin. The pigment will then be applied to the brow area.

At least one or more follow up appointments are required in order to evaluate the overall appearance of the brows and the color of the pigment. The entire microblading process takes approximately 1-2 hrs to complete. Prior to the treatment, we will make client record, take photos of the brows, and discuss the desired design and color of pigment to be used. Immediately following treatment, brows will look slightly darker than anticipated, but the color will fade approximately 30-50%, Therefore it is recommended that clients schedule a follow up appointment about one month after the initial treatment. After the initial healing period, permanent makeup is very low maintenance; clients can touch or rub their eyebrows and get them wet without any issues.

Permanent makeup is very safe as long as proper sterilization and disinfection guidelines are followed and which we adhere to. such as:

  • All needles used must always be sterile and single use.New and sterile needles should be opened in the presence of the client.
  • Sterilized one-time use equipment should be disposed of in the appropriate sharps container immediately after use.
  • Must disinfect the skin of the desired treatment area prior to treatment.
  • Clinical grade,single use equipment and materials should be used during treatment.
  • New protection equipment including disposable one-time use aprons and sterile gloves should be used by esthetician and replaced by new ones during procedure as required.
  • A disposable one-time use chair covering should be new for each client.
  • The treatment room should be clean and contaminant-free.
  • The esthetician should be clean and have good personal hygiene.
