Microblading and Powdered Ombre are both forms of cosmetic tattooing. Cosmetic tattoos are placed below the epidermis into the dermal layer of  the skin. Anytime pigment is placed into the skin, it is considered a tattoo. Like your traditional tattoo, cosmetic tattooed makeup is not placed as deep into the skin. That is why it fades within 1-3 years.

Cosmetic tattooing is also called:

  • Permanent makeup
  • Semi-permanent makeup
  • Ombre powder eyebrows
  • Micropigmentation
  • Microblading (eyebrows)

Eyebrows are tattooed by implanting hair-like strokes of pigment into the skin with either a manual hand held tool or placing a powdery like finish with an actual tattoo powered machine.

You MUST email clear photos of any previously tattooed makeup prior to your appointment. I must see and approve the previous tattoo before any work is performed. This may not be possible if the existing tattoo is too dark, bold, thick, or dense. There may be limitations to realistic expectations.

Each person’s skin may respond or heal differently. This timeline acts as a guideline only.

  • Day 1-2: The tattooed area will appear dark and bold, but don’t worry – this is normal! Your brows will also feel a bit bruised and sore for the first couple days.
  • Day 3-5: Eyebrows will start to feel itchy and tight. They may appear thicker in texture as natural exfoliation will begin:
  • Day 5-7: There will be scabbing. The scabs may look thick or maybe just flaky. you will notice this is the most unpleasant look until the scabs fall off completely.
  • Day 7-14: New skin underneath will appear softer and lighter for a few weeks. The true colour will appear at about the 6 week mark.
  • People who want to save time and effort from having to do their eyebrows each day
  • People with unsteady hands
  • People who have thinning, sparse, or no eyebrows
  • People with allergies to conventional makeup
  • People who have gone through chemotherapy (with doctor’s approval)
  • People who have an active lifestyle
  • People with alopecia or any form of hair loss

It takes approximately 2.5-4 hours for the first procedure. This will include the consultation before the procedure. At that time we decide the shape, shade and technique as everyone is unique with their own style.

Cosmetic tattoos will fade over time. Regular touch-ups are highly recommended every 1-2 years. Everyone is different as  each person’s immune system, lifestyle, skin type, and care of the tattoo are unique. Each cosmetic tattoo session and the first touch-up session (2 visits in total) are included in the price. Additional sessions maybe required.

Every individual is different. Whether you have oily skin, dry skin or combination skin, if you are on  medications, have a health condition,  use retinols, a sun worshipper, breast feeding or are a heavy smoker. This can all attribute to how long your tattoo may last. We  do a full consultation the day of the procedure to determine what your goals are and what may cause fading faster.

Upon entering the studio clients will be required to fill out a Covid-19 waiver and have your temperature taken. A waiver will also be completed with your health history to the best of your knowledge. As sometimes certain health conditions or medications can make you less of a candidate to have the procedure.

First, we will go over absolutely everything during your consultation before your procedure. We decide the shade, shape and technique together at this time. You are welcome to ask all of your questions during the consultation.  Once you are happy with the design, we will continue with the procedure!

You will be given a care package and thorough instructions to follow after the procedure. At this time we will schedule your touch-up session for 6-8 weeks later.


First of all, Botox is just the brand name of a certain neuromodulator, called Botulinum Toxin Type A, but Botox refers to an injectable cosmetic treatment used to effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox can only be used by a licensed medical professional. There are also other well-known brand names for the same type of product, such as Dysport.

Cosmetic Botox is FDA approved for use on

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Wrinkles between the eyebrows

Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox injections are very small, so pain is usually minimal.

We can assure you that our experienced Doctor and Registered Nurse, are skilled in making you look just like your normal self, just noticeably more youthful and refreshed!

The amount of Botox you’ll need depends entirely on a few contributing factors. These include:

  • The type of wrinkles you’d like to treat
  • Your unique aesthetic goals
  • The degree of muscle movement in your face
  • The number of times you’ve had Botox in the past
  • Your health history

People easily get these two types of injectables confused all the time, but here’s an easy way to distinguish between the two: Botox is for limiting muscle movement, fillers are for building volume.

Botox reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Facial fillers, however, fill the trouble areas with a gel made up of hyaluronic acid, which helps to plump and lift the skin to replace volume loss.

Explained simply, when injected directly into the muscle, Botox blocks the muscle’s nerve signals and temporarily relaxes it. When the muscle is relaxed, dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement soften, dissipate, or disappear completely.

Common side effects of any injectable include:

  • Muscle weakness near the injection sites
  • Slight bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Redness
  • Swelling

In general, Botox injections are meant to last 3-4 months. To keep results going, you could need a follow-up treatment. After that, you should be able to expect your treatments to begin lasting longer.
