YUMI™ KERATIN LASH LIFT
Many clients prefer a low maintenance, more natural lash look and with a YUMI™ Lash Lift we can lift, curl and tint a clients natural lashes, without any added extensions or daily maintenance.
YUMI™ Lash is an advanced technique designed to boost and lift the natural lashes without having to resort to false lashes. A perfect alternative to false lashes that enhances one's own natural beauty and coloring.
A range of tints are available for coloring the lash which will compliment each complexion perfectly.
Many clients love to pair the YUMI™ Lash Lift with a lash growth serum (my personal favorite being EyEnvy™ - sold here), to create a gorgeous, long & full look.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Imagine waking up every morning with perfect eyebrows...
Microblading, also known as feathering, eyebrow embroidery and 3-D eyebrows, uses a disposable, pen-like micro-blade device to etch very fine lines into skin, mimicking eyebrow hairs.
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that deposits color closer to the surface of the skin than with the use of a machine, leaving very crisp, fine hair strokes. This method prevents ink spillage under the skin so these lines heal thinner and sharper with less blurring over time.
The enhancement looks completely natural and is an excellent long term solution for hiding common eyebrow imperfections such as gaps between the hairs, scars, thinness in shape, etc.
WHO IS IT FOR?
At any age, thicker, fuller brows enhance facial beauty, creating a more youthful appearance, while accentuating the natural beauty of the eyes and balancing the facial features.
Very few people are naturally blessed with ideal, lavish brows, and many of us (especially those of us who were around in the 90's) have over-tweezed, resulting in permanent 'holes' in the brows. Fiber gels, pencils, and other eyebrow makeup can create the illusion of fullness, but the daily effort of drawing on the perfect pair can be both time-consuming and difficult to accomplish.
The art of microblading, when performed by an experienced professional with a keen, aesthetic eye for beauty, can give you the ideal pair of natural-looking brows for your face. Whether someone is wanting to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps or fill in over plucked brows, microblading is the ideal semi-permanent, natural-looking solution.
DOES IT HURT?
With the use of numbing cream we make the procedure relatively painless.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
Clients may feel some tenderness or sensitivity for a few days after the procedure. As the brows heal, they may flake and form scabs that will fall off.
Initially, brows will appear darker, fading 20-30% within 1.5 - 2 weeks. Depending on how well the skin retains the pigment, clients may opt for a touch up within four to six weeks. Many clients come for an annual touch up to maintain the sharpness of the hair strokes, as well as the shape and color of their brows. I offer a special touch up/re-do rate for my returning clients up to three years after their initial appointment.
If you are coming for a YUMI™ Lash Lift please come with clean eyes (no makeup or left over makeup residue)
