ARE REAL BROWS® AND MICROBLADING THE SAME THING? . . .

The Real Brows® Method was created by our Training Director and Founder, Shea Gipson. The tools used are the same as those used for Microblading and 3D Embroidery, but the Methodology is unique to our company. The Real Brows® Method places hair-like strokes just under the surface of the skin (epidermis) without pushing the pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Our hair stroke designs follow the direction of the client’s natural hair growth pattern rather than a one-size-fits-all template.

IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE HAVING THE PROCEDURE? . . .

Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 7 days prior to the procedure.
Avoid exercise, tanning, Vitamin E, Aspirin and Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to the procedure.
Avoid alcohol on the day of the procedure.
Discontinue use of Retin-A near the brows area for 6 weeks prior to scheduling an appointment.
Schedule your appointment for the Real Brows procedure prior to your Botox appointment.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW EYEBROWS? . . .

Avoid water around the brow area during the healing process, which is usually 5 – 7 days. Apply after-care products as recommended by your Real Brows® Professional.
For better color retention, the formation of thin scabs is ideal, therefore keeping the brows dry during the day and using a thick coat of Vaseline to cover them only when showering, washing face or instances where the brows could get wet will aid in forming a thin epithelial crust (scab).
Do not pick the epithelial crust (scab) that forms. Allow it to flake off naturally. Picking can result in loss of pigment (color) loss.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I REQUIRE? . . .

In most cases, the initial treatment followed by a retouch appointment is all that is needed until the strokes fade over time.
Note: Rare cases may require a 3rd treatment. If you have large pores and oily skin directly in the brow area, there is a chance that you may need a 3rd treatment.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I ARRIVE TO MY APPOINTMENT? . . .

You will be given a consent form to sign, then you will relax in a comfortable chair while a Real Brows® Professional outlines your new brows to a shape that you desire. After that the Real Brows® Professional will "clean up" your brows by removing a few hairs, then apply an anesthetic cream to the area to minimize discomfort. Your Real Brows® Professional will use a special tool and a pigment color that matches your brow’s hair color to draw the hair-like strokes on your skin. A special ointment is applied after the procedure to help with the healing process. The entire process takes a little more than an hour from start to finish.

WILL IT LOOK NATURAL? . . .

Yes, Real Brows® look exactly like Real Brow hairs!! Immediately after the treatment the color will appear darker for the first 7-14 days. After that, you will lose approximately 50% of color intensity.

WHAT KIND OF PIGMENTS ARE USED? . . .

We use quality plant based cream pigments specifically manufactured for implantation into human skin. Our Cream Pigments are inorganic (meaning they are semi-permanent).

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS TREATMENT? . . .

  • Men or Women who have over-plucked & sparse brow hair.
  • have gaps or scars where the hair will not grow back.
  • are suffering from Alopecia (hair loss).
  • have mostly faded color from an old eyebrow tattoo.
  • want a particular shape for their eyebrows.

IS IT SAFE? . . .

EYELASH EXTENSIONS

IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME? . . .

The majority of people don't need to take time off work. There is usually no swelling within the eyebrow treatments, however this can vary from person to person depending on levels of sensitivity.

HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY NEW EXTENSIONS? . . .

We advise that you try your best to do the following to prolong the life of your lashes:

  • Avoid Steam
  • Be Gentle with your lashes
  • Do not use an eyelash curler
  • Do not use oil-based products near the eyes (oil dissolves the bond)
  • Do not use mascara (mascara's ingredients include oil as a binding agent)
  • Lightly rinse lashes after exposure to sweat, tears or salt water (salt oxidizes glue)

CAN I SWIM, SHOWER OR VISIT THE SPA ON THE DAY OF THE PROCEDURE? . . .

Yes. Our bonding adhesive dries immediately. We ask that you wait at least 2 hours before getting them wet.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE PROCEDURE? . . .

Do not curl your lashes or put on mascara on the day of your appointment. Thoroughly clean your face and lashes with mild cleanser. You can wear contacts to your appointment as long as you are comfortable. Eyes are closed during the procedure.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE? . . .

The procedure is very relaxing. It takes about 2 hours to apply a new set of Extensions. Refills take about 1 hour and Extended refills take about 1.5 hours.

IF THE LASHES LAST 6 – 8 WEEKS WHY DO I NEED REFILLS? . . .

Each extension's longevity is tied to the fate of an eyelash's natural life cycle. Lashes shed little by little causing you to loose the full look of a new set of extensions over time. At the 3 to 4 week timeframe, most clients have lost about 50% of their extensions. Therefore, refill appointments are scheduled every 3 to 4 weeks to replace the lost lashes and maintain existing ones. Please note: Clients who exceed 4 weeks risk loosing more than 50% of lashes. When this happens an extended refill may be necessary. Extended refills take more time and cost more than a regular refill.

HOW LONG DO EXTENSIONS LAST? . . .

With proper care your new Eyelash Extensions will last the length of your natural lash cycle (6 to 8 weeks). The typical life cycle of a lash is 90 to 100 days, but poor habits such as poor nutrition, stress, not removing make up and using eyelash curlers can speed up this cycle. Your lash technician has no way of determining where your natural lash is in it's cycle prior to application. Extensions are applied to mature lashes or lashes that are long enough to support the extension. Some of these lashes are approximately 5 to 6 weeks into their cycle and may be close to full maturity.

WHAT ARE EYELASH EXTENSIONS? . . .

Most Eyelash Extensions are made of synthetic fibers and are designed to be identical to your real lashes. The curled extension is bonded to your natural lash "strand by strand". Lash Extensions are made to look identical to human lashes and are crimp resistant. The adhesive is formulated for a bond that dries soft on the lashes. Your lashes will remain flexible, bouncy and there is no need for mascara.
