What are Powder Brows?

Powder brows, also known as permanent makeup or PMU, is a cosmetic tattooing technique that is used to fill in areas of sparse eyebrows and create an even, natural looking appearance. The powder brow method uses a specialized machine to deposit pigment into the skin on a very fine level, giving it the look of powdery makeup. The technique creates a realistic-looking makeup effect and requires very little maintenance after your 6 week touch-up. We use topical numbing cream for all permanent makeup services.

Microblading Vs Powder Brows

There are several different techniques for achieving defined brows, such as hair stokes microblading, and powdered brows. Microblading uses a handheld tool with tiny needles to draw individual eyebrow hairs onto the face; powder brows used a tattoo gun to create a soft customized makeup effect. Each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to book a consultation with your tattoo artist in advance to go over what is your desired outcome. The main difference between powder brows and microblading is that with powder brows the ink is deposited into the skin on a much finer level than microblading. Microblading leaves hair strokes that are more defined than the soft make up effect of powder brows. Powder Brows is a better options for clients with oily skin, as oily skin has a tendency to kick out the pigment that is deposited with the microblading technique. Additionally, because of the way the pigment is applied in powder brows, it does not need to be touched up as often as microblading requires.

Who is a good candidate for Cosmetic Tattoo’s?

Most people are good candidates for cosmetic tattooing, however there are some exceptions. Those with a history of keloid scarring, those that are pregnant or lactating, people that have very sensitive skin or those who have recently used Accutane should not get permanent makeup. Additionally, individuals who are prone to cold sores or herpes simplex virus may need to take antiviral medication before receiving a cosmetic tattoo.

What is Lip Blushing?

Lip Blushing is a cosmetic tattoo to enhance your lip color. The process begins with an artist applying a numbing cream to the lips, which helps reduce pain and ensure that the client remains comfortable throughout the procedure. Next, they will go over the lips with a lip liner and lip blush pencil in order to create the exact hue and shape desired by the client. Once this part is complete, they will use specialized needles to apply pigment into the dermis of lip skin in small amounts until a subtle and natural-looking lip has been achieved. Lip blushing can be very rewarding for those looking for attractive and long lasting lip color that emphasizes their unique beauty. Lip Blushing can also be used to lighten dark pigmented lips or even out uneven lip pigment.
