Step 1: Consult With You
Once you book an appointment, we consult with you about your lifestyle and everyday makeup routine. Do you draw your brows in daily? Do you prefer natural and soft looking eyebrows, or thicker, bolder, signature brows? Some clients have over-tweezed and wish to return to their more natural look. During the consultation, we'll discuss your options and design your most perfect eyebrow.
Step 2: I Hand Draw Your New Brows
Now that we have determined the best eyebrow shape and design for you, we'll hand draw your new eyebrows. We'll ask you to make different facial expressions, such as to smile, to ensure your brows are perfect. Our mission is to create a design that will best complement your natural features. We'll choose the best color and shape specially customized to you.
Step 3: Numb Your Eyebrows
Before we begin we’ll apply a topical numbing cream, and wait 20-30 minutes, to make certain you are as comfortable as possible. During this time you can lay back and relax. Many clients worry about the procedure being painful but the truth is most clients do not complain about any pain, and even fall asleep!
Step 4: We Begin
We begin once we have determined you feel numb and relaxed. We meticulously hand draw each hair stroke to perfectly match the color, thickness, and flow of your natural brow hair.
Step 5: THE REVEAL!
After you are complete, we'll finally reveal your new eyebrows! Say goodbye to drawing on your brows every morning. Now you’ll wake up with beautiful eyebrows every day!
A complimentary perfection visit after 6-8 weeks, mature skin up to 12 weeks is recommended and included in the original price.
Day 1: You love your new brows! The hair strokes will appear very natural looking.
Days 2-4: The color will begin to darken temporarily as the pigment oxidizes and light scabs form.
Days 5-14: Your brows will begin flaking. DO NOT pick at any scabs. Allow healing to shed naturally. At this time, it will appear that your hair strokes have nearly disappeared. This is only temporary as the new skin is still healing over each hair stroke. Over the next several weeks your brows will reappear.
Days 14-28: Towards the end of your healing you will notice the strokes reappearing. They will heal approximately 30% lighter than Day 1.
Days 28+: It’s time for your complimentary perfection visit! At this time your brows are fully healed and it is recommended that you come back in to reinforce any strokes that might have healed lighter than desired.
*Once healed, remember to always apply full spectrum sunscreen to your brows when in the sun to avoid premature fading of treatment.
*A complete healing cycle takes 4-12 weeks depending on age and your body regeneration.
