BOOKING PROCEDURE


Consultation: 30 minutes. During your consult, your desired brow shape and color, and overall appearance is discussed. After your consult you will receive your PreTx Guide to prepare you for the procedure. Please attach a note on you online booking if you would like your procedure done on the same day of your consultation. Deposit may be required.

Procedure: 2hrs. During your Microblading session your brow area is numbed to ease discomfort during the procedure. The procedure time can range from 1-2 hours depending on the amount of restoration required. You will receive a detailed PostTx Guide and products to care for your brows during the recovery phase.

Refresher: 1.5 hrs. Optimal results are achieved with this complimentary refresher session; it ensures that every stroke is vibrant and extends wear. A minimum of 40% of the initial shape must be present for your Refresher. This time varies per person. The refresher can be booked anytime from 6 weeks to 12 months following the initial procedure.


PRE-TREATMENT GUIDE

Taking necessary precautions prior to treatment will ensure that your treatment can be performed safely and effectively.

1. Cleanse and moisturize morning and evening. Use a PRE CLEANSER such as our Glô Skin Beauty Gentle Cream Cleanser in the evenings over your brow area.

2. AVOID caffeinated beverages 2 hours prior to appointment as this can cause skin sensitivity.

3. DO NOT consume alcohol 12 hours prior to scheduled appointment as this can cause excessive bleeding and sensitivity during treatment.

4. Apply SPF over brow area before sun exposure. AVOID direct sunlight and extended sun exposure.

5. DO NOT take the following medications/ supplements during the 72 hours leading up to your procedure: **Consult and report with your physician prior to stopping medication**
  • Acetylsalicylic Acid (ASA) medications. Example: Asprin™.
  • Anticoagulants (blood thinners)
  • Niacin
6. Direct contact with water will need to be avoided for 72 hours following your procedure; therefore make sure to wash your hair prior to your appointment.

POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

The following guide will help you care for your fresh brows and ensure you achieve best results. Your brows may feel sore and bruised immediately following your procedure; this usually dissipates within 12 hours.
Follow the POST-TREATMENT GUIDE until your brows have completely flaked and healed. The healing process can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual.

1. Hot temperatures will irritate your brows during the first 12 hours, therefore remain indoors and fan if necessary.

2. DO NOT touch brow with unwashed hands, doing so can cause infection.

3. DO NOT soak brows. Showers and baths are safe; keep your brows away from direct water contact as this may cause color to fade.

4. Face washing and moisturizing instructions:
  • Gently cleanse lower half and forehead with your daily cleanser in the morning. When rinsing cleanser, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
  • Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with your cleanser and gently wipe brows in outward motion. Blot dry with dry gauze/pad.

  • Once your brows begin scab or flake, apply a small amount of moisturizer over the brows after washing in the morning and evening.

5. DO NOT use ANY makeup or SPF directly over the brow area until brows have completely healed. This may alter color tone or blur strokes.

6. AVOID direct sunlight, this can cause the pigment to fade and irritate the skin.

7. DO NOT pick or lift scabs or flakes from brows, this may pull the pigment prematurely causing fading or gaps in strokes.

8. Brow can be lightly tweezed around area treated but not directly over for 3 weeks. Waxing procedure can be performed 4 weeks following procedure.

Chemical Peels- Hydrating

Hydrating Peel

Our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.

HYDRATING PEEL
Description: Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.

The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.

This acid peel solution provides intense exfoliation for normal combination and dry skin types concerned with aging and hyperpigmentation. It contains 35% glycolic and 35% lactic acid.

Pre-treatment protocols:
  • Must not currently be on or have used Accutane or any other oral prescription acne medications in the past 12 months
  • If currently using any products containing AHA/BHA/Retin A/Vitamin A on the area being treated, you must discontinue usage 2 weeks prior to procedure
  • Must wait a minimum of 1 week from last tanning session.
  • NOTE: To be eligible for this treatment your skin must be pretreated with AHA or BHA (e.g. Enzyme Peel or pretreated with home care).


Time frame: 15-30 minutes

Recommended sessions: 4-8

Downtime required: 1-7 days

Contraindications:
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin cancer (remission under 2 years)
  • Use of photosensitive medication and herbs
  • Active infection of Herpes Simplex in treatment area
  • Active skin infection

Potential side effects:
  • Discomfort
