What is the Digital Microblading?2023-01-27T20:28:12+00:00

“Digital Microblading” is a permanent cosmetic procedure that uses a digital rotary pen with only 1 very fine needle that implants pigment into the skin to resemble the appearance of natural eyebrow hair. This technique is versatile in that we can also combine it with a light or heavy powdering to give our clients the desired outcome they are looking for.

How is permanent eyebrow shape and color decided?2019-06-20T19:16:16+00:00

At the time of your appointment, your skin type and undertones will be analyzed, as well as brow and hair color, natural growth patterns, facial shape, and bone structure. With your preferential input, we will design and shape the brow to something that is both flattering and natural. A color will be chosen to closely match your brow hair and only the hair that sits outside of our desired shape will be removed, unless otherwise requested.

Is permanent makeup painful?2023-01-27T20:29:35+00:00

Though pain sensitivity varies from person to person, we do use a topical numbing agent before we start the procedure and continue to add topical anesthetics during the procedure in order to minimize any discomfort.

How does Emsculpt Neo compare to liposuction and non-invasive device alternatives?2021-07-06T23:16:56+00:00

Emsculpt NEO does not compare to liposuction as Emsculpt NEO is a completely non-invasive procedure. It does not require surgery, needles, anesthesia, or any downtime.. There is no other device in the aesthetic field that treats both fat and muscle in a single treatment.

Does this use tattoo ink?2023-01-27T20:31:01+00:00

We use pigments and ink. Because the areas we work have thin skin and are prone to the elements they do fade over time, which gives us the ability to make changes as you age.

Does Morpheus8 hurt?2023-08-02T23:24:09+00:00

A topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment so the pain is very minimal. Every patient has a vastly different pain tolerance and certain areas can be more sensitive.

Our Morpheus8 clients also have the option to add-on Pro-Nox, a pneumatically driven gas system designed to deliver a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture, for added comfort during the procedure.
