What is Permanent Makeup?
Machine Method: The machine method uses needle configurations and electricity to tap the color into the skin. Hairstoke brows, powder brows, eyeliner, and lip color procedures can be achieved with this method. Parts of the machine need to be sterilized in an autoclave, so make sure you choose an artist who takes health and safety very seriously. Lasts approx 1-3 years.
Microblading: Microblading uses a hand tool that blades the color into the skin in hair-like strokes within shallow "paper cuts”. Then, these cuts are filled with as much pigment as they will hold. All tools are pre-sterilized and fully disposable. Not everyone is a good candidate for microblading. Microblading heals best on dry or dry/combo skin. Hair-like strokes blur, become powdery, or fade out completely on oily skin. Since there is a huge learning curve with microblading, make sure you choose an experienced artist who can provide healed photos so you don’t risk healing without any color (too shallow application) or gray/blue results (too deep application) or scarring. Lasts approx 1-2 years.
Manual Method: Similar to a machine, the manual method taps color into the skin by hand (instead of electricity). Hairstoke brows, powder brows, eyeliner, and lip color procedures can be achieved with this method. All tools are pre-sterilized and fully disposable. Always make sure you do your research and choose an experienced artist for best results. Lasts approx 1-3 years.

Click here to read about the different types of brow procedures. We will also help you make a decision based on your skin type, lifestyle, and brow goal.
Do I need a Consultation before scheduling a procedure appointment?
If you are scheduling an eyeliner procedure, a lip procedure, or if you've had previous work done by another artist in the past, a consultation is recommended.
If you're not sure you want a procedure done, or if you would like to come in and meet Lindsey or Cindy and/or see the facility, you may schedule a seperate consultation.
Each new brow procedure begins with an hour long consultation. During this hour, we discuss what you like and dislike, and we also discuss which procedure would be best suited for your skin type and desired results. Then, we draw, shape, and measure the brows, and you approve your brow design before we begin. We look at photos and discuss color choice. If you know you'd like the procedure done the same day, a separate consultation is not recommended. Most clients choose to do the procedure the same day.
Free 30 minute consultations are available - these consultations do not include a drawing session. 1 hour consultations are available for $50 - during our 1 hour consultations, we draw, shape, and measure the brows.
