“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.

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.

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. 

EMSCULPT NEO is the  first and only non invasive body shaping procedure that provides simultaneous fat elimination and muscle building in a combined 30-minute session.

If you can benefit from less fat and more muscle, EMSCULPT NEO procedure may be a great fit.

EMSCULPT NEO treatment areas include: the abdomen, buttocks, biceps, triceps, inner thighs, outer thighs, quads, hamstrings, and calves.

YES! EMSCULPT NEO and the embedded high intensity magnetic field (HIFEM) technology has been clinically tested for safety and efficacy through seven clinical studies.* Moreover, 30 scientific publications make HIFEM the most intensively researched body contouring technology since its introduction in 2018.

You can feel intense muscle contractions together with a heating sensation in the treated area which is comparable to hot stone massage.

Protocol for Emsculpt NEO is usually four 30-minute treatments, scheduled 5-10 days apart. Consult with True Life Canvas for more details.

There is no downtime with this procedure. You can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment.

After the treatment, the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes. The rest is flushed out by the body.

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.

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.

We recommend doing a refresher appointment every 12-24 months, but it largely depends on an individual’s skin and other factors like sun exposure, skin care products, etc.

No, it is not proven to be 100% safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women, but we would love to see you as soon as you are through :)

Our packages include 6 treatments. Treatments are scheduled every 4-6 weeks for the face, and body areas are scheduled 6-8 weeks apart.

Depending on the treatment area, it can get sensitive, but for the most part, the cooling gel and cooling plate on the machine does a great job to keep you comfortable through the quick treatment.

Laser Hair Reduction can be summer safe as long as you’re being diligent about sunscreen use before and after your treatment. Failing to apply sunscreen can result in permanent hyper or hypo pigmentation.

Most patients won’t see a reduction until around the third session. After that, you can expect to see a reduction in growth thickness, and start to see more bare patches. We cannot guarantee 100% hair removal. Expect to see 80-90% hair reduction in the treated areas.

For your first three Morpheus8 treatments, they are each scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. After that, you can do maintenance treatments (or series) once a year.

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.

Collagen production increases over the initial 28 days after your first treatment, but it is still necessary to wait to see the full results 60-90 days after your third treatment. Collagen can still continue to improve and produce in excess for up to 18 months after a series of treatments. Results are expected to last for a few years, however; understand that we cannot stop the aging process and your collagen will naturally deplete over the years.

Your first three Lumecca IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments are each scheduled 4 weeks apart. After that maintenance treatments are scheduled as needed once a year in the fall/winter.

We do not typically recommend this treatment in the summer months, as you need to be extremely cautious with sun exposure before and after your treatment.

Warm sensations can be felt during or after the treatment, however; the treatment itself does not hurt.

After your first IPL treatment, pigment spots and vascular lesions will get DARKER before they start to improve. Full, healed results can be expected 4 weeks after your third treatment.

No, this procedure will NOT be performed on sunburnt skin.
