What are Combo Brows?

As a combined beauty treatment (microblading and manual shading), manual shading gives each hair a new level of depth. After the treatment, a high-quality look is achieved. 

Do Semi-Permanent Brows hurt?

Every person’s pain tolerance is different. A numbing cream is applied to the eyebrows prior to the procedure to limit any discomfort. Most clients feel little to no pain while some clients may experience a minimal amount of pain.

How do you chose the eyebrow shape?

A ruler measuring tool and a calliper microblading tool with a waterproof pencil is used by the artist to shape the brow.  The colour and shape of the brow depend on bone structure eye size and skin tone.

How long is the healing process?

It takes approximately 2 weeks for the skin to heal.  During this time, a client may experience redness and scabbing.  This is normal. (Read and follow the aftercare instructions.)

How long does it last?

Microblading lasts anywhere from 12-18 months depending on skin type, undertones, aftercare and sun exposure.  Some clients prefer a bold brow and will come in for a touch up every 6 to 10 months whereas some clients retention is so good that they can wait 12-18 months.
