FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Similar concept but tattoos are done with tattoo ink, and are permanent, where as cosmetic tattoos are semi-permanent because they are done with pigments that are far less concentrated than ink, and will fade over time.

Brow Micropigmentation is a popular procedure done by both men and women to restore and rebuild eyebrow shape, color, and or density.   It is also known as semi -permanent make up or cosmetic tattooing. There are different styles that can be achieved with a hand tool or digital device that is uses micro needles to embed micro ha pigment into the dermis layer in the skin – either to shade back fill color, or to  replicate the appearance of brow hair.  All micropigmentation procedures are done with semi-permanent pigment, not ink.

Microblading is a hand application manual technique that takes a needle blade tool that is dipped into pigment and then is cut or sliced into the skin to give that hair stroke effect. Nano Needling is an alternative to microblading which does not involve cutting, and slicing the skin with a microblade, but gives the same feather hair like strokes. It is done with a digital machine that is precisely calibrated and uses a micro nano needle to deposit pigment. Similar to a tattoo rotary device or sewing machine that moves up and down, it is a more controlled instrument that can create the same desired hair stroke effect with less trauma to the skin.

Absolutely! Almost all our clients get brow restoration that have brow hair and use the technique to back fill or enhance their shape so that the artwork blends in with their natural brow hair giving it more density and or manicured look. How long does it take to get your brows done? New clients 1.5 hours You can come into the clinic to meet with the artist practitioner to do a formal consultation where you can answer all your questions, get a cosmetic preview of the shape, and a quote based on what you want to do.

Pricing is determined by how much work is needed to restore to your desired look. All new brow clients are priced based on if they are light, medium, or full fills -which is determined by the technician during the consultation. Light fill: $395-495 – Thin brows that are soft and delicate, or light touch ups to just backfill and enhance brow shape. Medium fill: $495-595 - Most common fill to restore brows that are missing 1/3 of hair and need to reshape, build back density, or Full fill: $595-695 - Recreating both brows in their entirety. Having to design, balance, and build both brows completely.

The technique used is the safest modality for the skin to insert pigment. We do not use blades to deposit pigment, which reduces the risk for manual error. We use micro nano single use needles with a conventional rotary device that is calibrated for precise depth and consistency, which is less traumatic for the skin. The digital pen is similar to a tattoo gun, but way more delicate. This allows the artist to truly mimic the appearance of hair to achieve the perfect delicate hair stroke, or point by point placement system. We also operate out of a clinic space, and only use single use disposable needles and supplies. Stations are disinfected and sanitized before and after each client and procedure.

Avoid Caffeine, alcohol, Aspirin, or Ibuprofen 24 hours before your appointment. * Avoid doing Botox injections 2 weeks prior to your appointment * Discontinue using Vitamin E, Fish oil, and any other blood thinning products a week before your appointment * Discontinue using Vitamin A or Retinol products at least weeks prior to your brow appointment * Inform your technician of any allergies, medical conditions, and medications prior to your appointment

1. Do not be alarmed if your brows appear darker, and or fuller after your appointment - this is normal. Skin responses vary but your skin will settle down quickly. The color will lighten over the next 3-5 days during the healing process. 2. The skin around the brows could turn slightly pink and look irritated after having this intradermal procedure. This is a normal skin response that usually subsides within the hour, but for some can last up to 24 hours after application of pigment. 3. If you have sensitive skin you may observe slight swelling around the artistry, which can cause temporary visual asymmetry after procedure until the skin calms down. Extreme sensitivity cases can take up to 24 hours to resolve. 4. The skin may shed some during the healing process, which can result in fading or pigment loss. Thus, you may see some pigment or skin debris on your cotton swab while applying ointment. Your brows may flake or scab a little during healing - this is normal. Do not pick at your brows, let them naturally exfoliate. 5. Your brows will appear several shades lighter after healing. Pigment fading and or loss is normal - especially after your initial session. The top layer of the skin is fresh and is muting the pigment. Your brows are still healing up to 30 days after your appointment - even though the exfoliating has stopped. It is common that the color will start to return during this time, and to seem slightly sparse in spots, and not dark enough. This is the time where you will notice that you will need your perfection session, or additional touch ups to refine and reinforce the artistry and color. Your "perfection session" is your touch up to tweak shape and color.

Anesthetic gel applied before all brow procedures to minimize any discomfort. Scalp Micropigmentation does not require anesthetic, however certain areas of the scalp can be more sensitive than others so there are topical numbing spray agents that can be used to reduce discomfort.

Everybody heals differently and at different rates. Brow micropigmentation heals usually withing 3-4 days, but post care regimens are advised for 7 days after appointment. Even though they feel healed, they are still going through the healing process and post care needs to be maintained.

Brow procedures last on average between 12 -18 months, or longer depending on an individual’s physiology, skin type, lifestyle, metabolism, exposure to sun and or products they use. Touch ups to reinforce hair stroke artistry are usually done annually or bi-annually. Scalp Micropigmentation procedures typically last anywhere between 2-4 years depending on the variables of that individual. Small touch ups can be intermittently done bi annually or longer to reinforce hair follicles and keep color and the illusion of texture more vibrant.

A perfection session is our terminology for the required touch up appointment after your initial appointment. It is necessary to do a secondary session to reinforce the pigment and artistry to have better success in holding for the 12-18 months. Everyone is different in how they retain pigment, so this gives you and the artist the opportunity to come back after you healed to see if there are any details you would like to add, or reinforce. It is very common to have fading after your first visit.

Scalp Micropigmentation is a procedure that uses a specialized detailed pointillism technique to insert micro impressions of pigment into the scalp to replicate the appearance of hair follicles. The result is unbelievably realistic and looks natural. It is not a tattoo in the sense that we do use tattoo ink, or tattoo needles. Specialized single use needles and digital pen device are used to precisely embed delicate pigment impressions into the scalp.

Prices can vary, but generally speaking from $1200-3600. The majority of our customers experience male pattern baldness spend between $1800-$3200. All treatments are priced individually based on exact requirements of that individual and compared to the Norwood scale.

Consultation can be done in person or over the phone with digital images. A consultation is essential to determine the best solution for each client. This is to gain an understanding of what results and style or look you are wanting to achieve. The practitioner will be able to guide you through the entire process, and will customize a quote based on your objectives and Norwood coverage needs. Throughout the consultation process our practitioner will discuss the desired hair style. Color, density and overall experience to ensure that you get exactly what you are looking for.

It is important to know this is not a one size fits all treatment. There are many different styles that people select based on their age, style, and overall look they are wanting to achieve. For reference we classify styles and options into three different categories. All pricing is based on Norwood scale of how much coverage is needed, as well as the style chosen.

Every case is different. You technician will guide you at your consult what prep to do prior to your appointment. It is recommended that clients trim down the day before using ½ guard or no guard, but to not shave with a razor 72 hours before an appointment. The artist will need to be able to see where your existing and remaining hair grows in order to do the treatment. • Hair Products: Discontinue use of styling and hair products 48 hours before and after your SMP procedure. This includes spray-on products, foams, powders, gels, hairspray, pomade, fibers, mousse, and or serums. If using products like Rogaine/Minoxidil for hair restoration, please refrain from using one week before you SMP and do not resume until 2 weeks after completing your SMP sessions. Clients that get SMP after using hair systems,, hair fibers, or topicals might have sensitive skin as a result could be pink for 24-72 hours after treatment. • Hair appointments: Coloring/cutting - haircuts are advised to be done 1 day before having your SMP session. Do not use a blade, or trimmer near scalp for 3 days after SMP session. • Sun Exposure: Avoid tanning salons, laying out, or spray tans for two weeks prior and after your appointment. Your technician needs to see the natural undertones in your skin and will not be able to carry out your appointment if your skin had sun exposure.

To know if you are a candidate for SMP it is recommended to do an in person consultation or visual consutation over the phone or skype. Only a range can be given over the phone – its imperateive that the technician see the scalp, especially scar tissue to see if you are a viable candidate to get the look tat you want, and that looks natural

SMP heals quickly and usually people are a little pink the day of the procedure, but resume back to normal in 24 hours, however we provide specific post care protocols that should be followed for the first week and thereafter for optimal results.

As with all micropigmentation procedures there is propensity to have some pink, redness, and or minor inflammation to the treated area after the procedure. This irritated response calms quickly – usually (1-6 hours), depending on the person and their skin type. The pigment always appears a little darker after treatment due to the blood flow underneath the skin, and residue pigment. The color usually fades by day 3, but can take up to 1 week to see the cured result.

Usually Scalp Micropigmentation sessions take anywhere between 3-4 sessions to complete – depending n how much coverage, density, or detailed work is needed. Sessions are spaced out one week apart. General treatment tat include hairline, front, top and crown with blending take 3-4 sessions. The first two treatments are done one week apart and then the 3 or 4th treatment is pushed out a couple weeks so when you return the artist can see the cured result and make any perfecting touches that need to be made.

SMP Sessions vary but roughly take 3-4 hours for the first session, then 2-3 hours for the second session, and 1-2 hours for the third session. Some cliens may need or require an additional session to complete their treatment, and that session is usually 1 hour – depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. How many sessions does it take to do SMP? Usually Scalp Micropigmentation sessions take anywhere between 3-4 sessions to complete – depending n how much coverage, density, or detailed work is needed. Sessions are spaced out one week apart. General treatment tat include hairline, front, top and crown with blending take 3-4 sessions.

There are several products that are recommend to help mute the shine to the scalp such as; Milk of Magnesia, Max Anti Shine Gel, and Head-lube Matte Lotion.

Scar concealment is a common request from people who have sacrring in hair transplant donor areas or from head trauma. Scalp Micropigmentation has the ability to camouflage surgical scars and ad to add density to failed hair transplants. SMP is used to conceal the appearance of FUT & FUE scars, scalp reduction scars, and historic plug or cobblestone scars from old fashioned hair restoration procedures. Scars have to be healed at least 1 year prior to having the procedure. This allows time for the newly formed collagen to heal, stabilize, and take pigment properly. There are two options with regards to scar camouflage procedures. You can choose to keep your hair long and blend the follicles underneath the hair to camouflage scar; or you can shave your hair down so the artist can blend it into the follicles and completely camouflage the scars. Some clients allow their hair to grow back after having procedure and can add density to blend more if needed.
