Chantal has a passion for helping women feel beautiful and confident in their own skin. With over 8 years in the beauty industry, she realized that having the perfect eyebrows is the most effective way to enhance natural beauty. As a result, Chantal is specialized in micro-blading; a great way to save time for women (or men) that require daily eyebrow up-keep and also relieves the struggle of drawing, filling, shading, and matching eyebrows. Permanent eyebrow makeup helps women focus on the important tasks in their day while having confidence in their perfect eyebrows. Perfect eyebrows frame a clients face and enhance the symmetry/structure for a more naturally polished appearance. Chantal’s talent is in creating that eyebrow shape which matches/enhances the symmetry of each unique client. Along with this, she also has the ability to invest her time effectively with each individual client to establish their unique wants and needs. She believes that every question/concern her clients might have are valid and will carefully take the time to explain available options and corresponding procedures. In the quest towards client satisfaction, Chantal consistently abides by client expectations and agreements made prior to any appointment; this includes punctuality and respect for each and every appointment made.
What is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as HD brows, is a procedure that involves the deposit of semi-permanent pigment into the upper region of the skin, or dermis, using an incredibly fine blade. The result of the HD Brow process is natural looking, hair-like strokes regardless of the amount of hair present originally. Microblading will correct and/or reconstruct uneven, overtweezed, scared, thinning eyebrows.
How long does the procedure take?
Microblading is a two-part procedure. The first session takes 2-3 hours depending on how much work a client needs. Clients then return for a touch up in 5-8 weeks, with the touch up taking 1-1.5 hours.
How long does Microblading last?
It can last from 1-2 years depending on your skin type and how you take care of them. On average, clients come back to refresh their eyebrows every 1-1.5 years.
Does Microblading hurt?
The process itself is not painful thanks to the numbing ointment that is applied. There may be a slight discomfort at first (which lasts for about 3-5 minutes on each brow), which is relative as everyone has a different level of sensitivity.
How long does it take to heal/ is there downtime?
There is no downtime with Microblading. After the first procedure the eyebrows may be slightly red and swollen but this goes down in 2-3 days. During the healing process the eyebrows go through stages of slight scabbing, milky skin (the color looks less dark and more milky looking as the skin heals), and even slight flaking. It takes 10-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in.
Does Microblading leave traces of pigment behind after 1-3 years?
Microblading is not permanent and therefore does disappear from the skin over time completely, but could leave a slight shadow behind.
Am I a good candidate for Microblading?
Microblading is safe and suitable for most people however some clients experience better results than others due to skin type (dry vs. oily), age, and body/skin conditions. Book an appointment for a consultation to discuss if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
What should I do to prepare for my Microblading procedure?
Avoid Caffeine, alcohol, and energy drinks 24 hrs before and day of procedure
Stop taking fish oils and omega supplements one week prior to appointment.
Avoid blood-thinning medications (such as Aspirin, Advil, Ibuprofen, etc.) 48 hours prior to your appointment (excessive bleeding during the procedure will reduce the amount of pigment absorption).
The following treatments are not recommended right before the procedure:
Botox and fillers ( wait 30 days)
Acid treatments (wait 30 days)
Laser treatments (wait 30 days)
Chemical peels ( wait 2 weeks)
Exposure to strong sunlight (wait 1 week)
Waxing (wait at least 2-5 days); Tweezing is okay.
Does everyone’s skin heal the same from the procedure?
Everyone’s skin is very different and therefore may heal differently from this procedure. Depending on your skin type, how well your body heels, and how well you take care of your new brows some areas might retain pigment better than others.
