Ask Cathy – February 2019
Dear Cathy: I’ve seen your advertisement for a long time and really want to do something with my brows. They are getting sparse and I hardly have any brows so I draw them on every day, which takes quite a bit of time, not to mention each day they look different. I get so frustrated but I’ve been afraid to get the Permanent Makeup because well… it’s permanent. What if I don’t like it or I want a different color as my hair color changes? – Debra in SCV
Dear Debra, Permanent makeup/Micro Blading is wonderful for those like yourself who don’t have much brow hair, or who’s eyesight isn’t what it used to be, unsteady hands, or just busy. It’s a definite time saver! Not to mention you wake up with the same beautiful brows each morning and do not have to wonder what shape they will take on that day! To put your mind at ease, the way I work is you will see it before we actually do it, so there is no guessing whether you will like it or not. If we are doing permanent eyebrows, for example, I numb the brow area with an effective topical numbing technique that makes any pain minimal. Then I draw in to fill in your brows, measuring them and getting them looking technically as close to perfect as I can and in the shape that flatters you and you are comfortable with. It is not until we have them just the way we both want the brows to look, that we move into the permanent makeup room. I go over color and use my expertise to guide you to the most complementary color for your skin tone, hair and eye color, etc. Once we start the actual procedure it takes under 30 minutes, for brows or eyeliner. You will also be happy to know, that we can change, lighten or darken the color of the brows, eyeliner at anytime, to suit your needs or desires. Permanent makeup will get softer in time. I recommend having a color boost to keep it looking fresh. Don’t let anyone tell you it will last forever! The Permanent Makeup procedures I provide for my clients’ are done using a state-of-the-art digital machine. The sterile disposable needles implant pigment very precisely for each hair stroke. Few technicians use this equipment because the machine and its specialized needles are quite expensive, but my clients deserve the best. There is a big difference in time, price and results!
