Microblading

This is a permanent makeup method that is done manually by using a small pen with fine rows of needles creating thin hair like strokes that mimic your natural eyebrows. This technique is done by depositing pigment into the basal layer of the epidermis. Unlike traditional tattoo, this involves no machines and results are more natural, pigments will not fade into the blue/green/red faded color, overtime the color will fade away without any touch-ups. To decide whether you are the perfect candidate for microblading, please read through FAQ tabs for more information.

Typically lasts between 18 months - 3 years. Varies by skin type, lifestyle, etc. Microblading is not for everyone and results vary by individual

Ombre-Combination

This is  a two-toned eyebrow creating desired fullness, sharp design, and shape. Unlike microblading, ombre appears like an air brush finish, going from light at the start of the eyebrows to dark towards the ends. Similar to the look of powdered eyebrows, unlike simulated hair strokes done with a blade. This procedure is done with a machine with very fine round needles, going into the dermis of the skin. Soft and subtle yet bold and dramatic at the same time, ombre effect are perfect for those who still find themselves filling in their eyebrows after microblading. This technique is also good for all skin types and results are more predictable.

Typically lasts between 18 months - 5 years. Varies by skin type, lifestyle, etc.

How often do I need to come in for touch-up after my first follow up?

Touch ups are recommended every 8-12 months, pigment is expected to fade over time as months/years go by. To keep the color fresh and strokes crispy, an annual color refresher is normally recommended. *Again, please note, results vary, as skin types are different as well as lifestyles, etc. 

What if my skin is sensitive? 

We can do a regular consultation for a patch test, we numb a small area of skin behind the ear, implant a few hairstrokes and wait for a reaction. Normally we wait for 15 minutes, or we can continue on with procedure after a few days from the patch test. Sometimes a reaction can be caused by exposure to sunlight, products used, etc

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What if I need to go to an event while I'm healing? 

As recommended, you want to read and do research on the aftercare stages to plan your events/life accordingly. Please see an example below: You will heal for 4-6 weeks: Some heal faster than others. (I do not own these photos)

What to expect:

  • TOO DARK!  The hair strokes will look very crisp after the procedure, a couple days later, they will get even darker than normal. The skin will push out some pigment as the cuts are starting to close as it heals. This is temporary, as the true colors will merge as the scabs starts to exfoliate. The touch up allows your tech to adjust and make any necessary corrections. 

  • ITS DRY, FLAKY, AND ITCHY! After a week or so, the scabs will start to fall off, will appear like dandruff. You may use a small dab amount of witch hazel oil on the itchy spots, do not load up the brows with oil. As scabs start to exfoliate, do not peel, scratch, pick, tap, touch the brows. 70% of the healed results are from proper aftercare, as we are not there to monitor your brows 24/7, it is your job to ensure you follow simple steps to achieve the best results, not perfect results, but best, as different skin react differently and heals differently.

  •  MY BROWS HAVE FADED! This stage normally start on the 2nd week. Pigments will fade 30-40% lighter. Your skin creates another layer and eventually appear back on the skin on the 3rd/4th week. Full results will appear after your second session. This procedure is a two step process, be patient and trust the process. Avoid touching, rubbing, swimming, loading the brows with makeup as they heal, some clients will develop patchy, bald spots, lose pigment more than the other eyebrow, sometimes brows will appear uneven, this is all normal and can be corrected on the final session. Your skin regenerates differently than others depending on your aftercare, lifestyle, age, immune system, etc. 

  •  TOO LIGHT! Pigment will soften 10-14 days after the procedure, normally after the scabs have exfoliated, the true color will merge. 

  • SWELLING/REDNESS: Swelling during the procedure is normal, redness will disappear half an hour after the procedure. 

Everyones skin heals and reacts differently, this is a two step process. A second follow up is recommended and we will book this appointment before you leave the studio, it is scheduled 6-8 weeks after the initial service. The touch up grants the tech to finalize the eyebrows, what you're going through is normal, we want them to heal as natural as possible. Keep in mind- if you can not keep your touch-up appointment, it is not guaranteed that you can get a desired specific date/time, as open spots are a first come, first serve basis. 

What to avoid during the healing stage?​​

  • No water- keep them dry. (You will be guided and be sent home with an aftercare kit with full instructions)

  • No heavy workouts, sweating, hot yoga, spa beds, tanning, etc.

  • No makeup on eyebrows.

  • Sun exposure, wear bigger shades/baseball cap if needed.

  • No alcohol intake. 

  • Hair appointments for 2 weeks. 

  • No swimming, surfing, avoid water activities for the next couple of weeks. 

  • Avoid making an appointment 2-3 weeks before your big events.

Any questions, please call, text, email anytime. 

 

I had my eyebrows microbladed by a different artist and don't like it?

I require you to send me photos before moving forward with any consultation. This will determine pricing, amount of work, etc.

How do I book an appointment?

You can call/text 702.375.9619 to book, please book a few weeks advance. A deposit is required to book a spot, this is to avoid last minute no-call/no-shows, as that slot could've been booked with another client. Time is valuable, please do not show up late, I schedule my appointments with caution and respect other clients time. *deposits are non-refundable, but goes towards your initial service*

What if I can't make it to my appointment?

We can reschedule, keep in mind, the earliest open spot will not be around the corner and cancellation lists is not short. 

Can I buy this as a gift for someone?

Absolutely! I have gift certificates available for purchase and no you can not use these certificates for other artists. 

What if I have oily skin?

Normally the artist will notice this right off the bat, the skin shines specially around the T-zone areas, if you know you have very oily skin, please read through your research before deciding if your skin is right for this procedure. Oily skin types have a higher chance of pigments fading faster, more touch-ups, and slightly blurry hair strokes. Keep in mind if you want the hair stroke appearance, you may need a third session (additional cost) to get them crispy. Keep in mind, there is also the "powdered, shaded, microshading" technique to work around your oily skin. 

Can I bring my kids to the appointment?

No. I do not recommend bringing your children under the age of 7

Does it hurt?

Depending on the person, numbing is applied before the procedure and throughout the process, we want you to be as comfortable as possible and prevent twitching/moving of the eyebrows.

Is this safe?

It is your job to do your homework before deciding if a certain artists follows standard guidelines with proper safety, this includes sterilization/sanitation rules. My work areas and business is licensed and permitted by Southern Nevada Health District. Passed inspections, Blood borne pathogens certified, all forms are presented in my studio. It is more than just a piece of paper and a blade to be a professional permanent makeup artist, there are many factors that need to be addressed before becoming a microblader here in Las Vegas, obligations, rules, exams, permits, inspections, 6 months apprenticeship programs, etc must all be met. You only have one face, please carefully do your research. If any questions/concerns, you are always welcome to contact me. 

How do I prep my skin before the procedure?

-Do get your stray hairs removed by tweezing, waxing, threading, etc. 

-Do not tan 1 week before the appointment. 

-Discontinue any heavy medications, blood thinners, etc. 2 weeks prior.

-Do not work out the day of. Sweat contains salt and will lift the pigment. 

-No botox 3 weeks before.

-No tint, facials, exfoliating, the day of. 

-No alcohol the day before. 

-No coffee or energy drinks on the day of. 

-No acne, sunburn, cuts, on the eyebrows.

*take extra precaution, its best to take a whole day off to keep the treated areas clean.

 

Can I schedule for a consultation? YES! please contact (928)-201-4149 for questions and appointments.

Do you offer training?

No, BUT! please send an email to info@kimlayson.com. One day shadowing is also available to certified microbladers. 

Each student will be supplied a kit of $500 worth of tools and products along with waiver forms and apprenticeship program information. 

Why can't I get sweat on the treated areas?

 Sweat also contains salt, You will need to take care of your new permanent makeup like a fresh wound. Doing your best to avoid anything that would normally have adverse effects to healing an injury. It is during this initial healing period when you will want to think twice about sweating too profusely. Just as hot tubs, jacuzzis, saunas, the ocean, chlorinated pools, and the sun should be avoided when healing your new permanent makeup, it's best to take a few days off from the gym too. Salt will lift the pigment and cause dramatic fading.

What if I have previous tattoo work? Can I still have this procedure done?

Yes! However, we require photos sent to us before booking an appointment. If previous tattoo work is too dark, we can not perform microblading, the tattoo must be faded/lighten enough for the hairstrokes to be appear above the old work, we then are able to achieve natural results. Failure to address your previous tattoo work will results in declination of the procedure.
