MICROBLADING & SHADING

Microblading & Shading
$500 - Initial Session
$100 - Touch-up Session

            (8 wks after initial appoin.)

This semi-permanent procedure also known as microshading or combo brows, combines microbladed hair-like strokes and machine shading. Microblading is the first part of the procedure, where each stroke deposits pigment by gently etching hair-like strokes into the skin, using a one time use, disposable hand tool with a very fine blade. The second part of the procedure is done by a permanent makeup machine and one time use, disposable, single needle, that gently implants tiny dots of pigment into the skin, between the bareness of the strokes. This will give a powdery effect, creating density and fullness to the brow. 


The colour of pigment is carefully chosen to match the natural or desired eyebrow colour, taking into consideration the clients skin overtone and undertone. 

Results typically last 1-2 years, possibly longer with machine shading. However, how fast it fades depends on the skin type, sun exposure, aftercare and skin care routine.

A touch-up is recommended at 12-24 months, for a colour boost and to maintain the desired shape, for a longer period of time.

Best for those individuals with tight skin, small pores and normal to dry skin.

 

Better option for those individuals with oily skin. 

Does microblading and shading hurt?

Microblading - clients have said on a pain scale of 1-10, it feels like a 3. Similar feeling to plucking 3 hairs at once.This discomfort will only last the first pass and after that a topical anesthetic is applied and clients feel comfortable. Once microblading is complete, the shading portion begins and by this time the client is already numb. Clients may feel a little vibration from the machine, but overall are completely relaxed.

What should I expect at my first microblading and shading appointment?

Consultation - Upon arrival you will begin with a consultation. Where the artist will explain the procedure, assess the shape, thickness of your eyebrows, hair colour and examine your skin overtones and undertones. Laura will ask you questions about your tastes and lifestyle, to create the best eyebrow for you. As well, taking the time to answer any questions you may have.

Photos - Before and after photos are a great way to see your beautiful brow transformation. So, once the brows have been cleaned of any makeup/moisturizer, photos will be taken.

Brow Shaping - The brow shape created, is custom to each client, according to your facial features and the golden ratio. Once measured, mapped and shaped to perfection, the client will review approve the shape.

Colour - The colour of pigment is carefully chosen to match the natural or desired eyebrow colour, skin overtone and undertone of the client. The client will then review and approve the colour.

After Photos - Once the microblading is complete and the client has time to look over them, photos will be taken of the clients new brows.

Aftercare - Each client will receive an aftercare bag and an aftercare instruction card, to take home and care of their new brows. As well, Laura will explain the aftercare in detail to the client. 

Book followup - The touchup appointment is booked for the client. 

What tools are used for microblading and shading?

Microblading is done by using a one time use, disposable hand tool with a very fine blade, made up of micro-needles. This allows for precise, crisp strokes to be etched into the skin.

Microblading and shading requires the use of both a microblade and pmu machine.
