Scalp Micropigmenation

There is a new trend that is super exciting...well, it's not so new its just a million times better than what was available to us in the past.  Scalp pigmentation or trico-pigmentation as it is sometimes known is a fantastic solution for men and women alike.  Male pattern baldness or early hair loss can be a very traumatic experience. Many men choose to shave their remaining hair or utilize different sprays to create the illusion of hair thickness.  This is not only very costly but is incredibly time consuming. It can also be embarrassing as most scalp sprays will wash off in the rain or by sweating. Forget swimming when you have thinning hair and would like to hide it, there is not way around it...or is there? 

We'd like to say that now there is no reason to avoid swimming, dancing, even windy weather because we can create the illusion of a full scalp by adding hair follicles in the form of a micro pigmented dots in a natural pattern and matching your hair color! 

Women who find their hair thinning after pregnancy or because of thyroid conditions love this procedure.  Balding men who begin to look older than their age love this procedure.  People with prominent scarring on their scalp love this procedure. Come have a consultation and see for yourself what all the buzz is about!

 

 

 

Crazy New Trend or Here To Stay?

The beauty world is abuzz with a new word, MICROBLADING! And we are in love.  How could Asia and Europe be apprise of such a great feat in permanent cosmetics when here in the US we a lagging behind, but no more. With the influx of Eastern European Microblading Academies we are now well on our way to utilizing this great semi-permanent cosmetic technique.  

Microblading is a pulling or swiping motion with a curved needle. This results in a fine line or scoring of the skin into which color is delivered by multiple needles on a slight curve.  No tapping. We’ve learned to use microblading not only for fine, natural hair-strokes that don’t blur or spread but to use many hand-tool needles, in addition to the curved ones, in a microblading stroke or to correct wrong color of old tattoos.

Microblading can be a life changing event.  Put the finest hairs back into your eyebrows to provide the finest definition and dimension possible. We can control the shape and symmetry of the brows better than ever before. Truly the most natural way to do eyebrow hair-strokes, you'll need to receive microblading from experienced professionals.

What To Expect After The Procedure

Immediately after the treatment the color will appear darker than it will eventually be.  This is because the pigment takes around seven days to enter the deeper layers of the skin.  After 7 to 10 days exfoliation will take place. The top layer of the skin will peel off leaving a softer color below.  The result is an natural looking brow enhancement. As the treated area heals some itching may occur. This is a good sign.

IT IS COMON TO HAVE SOME ARES FADE MORE THAN OTHERS AND TO PUSH (LOOSE) SOME OF THE PIGMENT THE FIRST TIME. THIS IS PART OF THE HEALING PROCESS. SOME STROKES WILL APPEAR TO BE GONE BUT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT THEY WILL RESURFACE AS THEY OXIDIZE. WEEK 3 SEEMS TO BE THE 'SWEET SPOT' TO HAVE THE STROKES APPEAR AGAIN.

Previously tattooed brows may take 1-3 treatments to achieve the desired results. Plan on scheduling the touch up within the first 2-3 months.

Microblading Might Not Be For You If...

 

  • You are pregnant or nursing, hormones do funny things to our bodies and the chances of your tattoo lasting are much lower
  • You like the "done up" look even when you are not wearing any other makeup. This procedure is meant to make you look youthful aka natural full brow, not give you what is affectionately known in the beauty industry as "Instagram brows"
  • You have taken Acutane in the past year
  • You are diabetic
  • You are on chemotherapy  (consult a doctor)
  • You have a viral infection or disease
  • You have epilepsy
  • You have a pacemaker or have major heart problems
  • You've had an organ transplant
  • You have skin irritations or Psoriasis near treated area
  • You are sick (cold, flu, etc.)
  • You've had Botox in the past two weeks
  • You have oily skin (results can not be guaranteed and will vary significantly)
  • You had or plan on having a chemical peel within 60 days of the procedure

 

Here is a picture (right after) of an alternative procedure that works well with oily/problematic skin called Ombre Brows.  This also happens (in my opinion) to have the best healed results,  superior even to microblading.
