Eyebrows can make the most dramatic difference to the basic symmetry and enhancement of the face as a whole. Why not frame your eyes with instantly perfect brows that won't wash away?
Micropgmentation or Permanent Make-Up is a term used to describe facial cosmetic tattooing. Color pigments are placed just below the dermis of the skin for the purpose of creating definition to enhance the individuals natural beauty. This service is custom designed for each individual client according to their face shape, skin-tone, eye colour, hair colour and most importantly, skin type. Semi-permanent make up as the name implies requires periodical maintenance to ensure the freshness of the look.
Do you use clean needles? Every client has a new, single use needle. At the beginning of the treatment you can observe the needles being taken out of a sterile pre-packed casing. On completion of the treatment, the needles are placed into a sharps container and then disposed of correctly. Artists at Shay Danielle use Harmony Microblades. To be the best in this industry, you must use the best tools available. Harmony microblades are one time use disposable blades.

Is it Painful?
Everybody has a different level of pain tolerance but most clients are completely comfortable and relaxed during the appointment. You may feel slight discomfort but the results will far outweigh this. You may take TYLENOL prior to the appointment but NOT ASPRIN. A highly effective numbing solution is applied before and during the treatment to keep you feeling as comfortable as possible. Clients have compared the sensation to tweezing or threading your eyebrows. (I have even had a few clients fall asleep during the procedure)
Is it safe if I am pregnant? Permanent Cosmetics are not safe for women who are pregnant or nursing. Pregnancy can cause undesirable results due to hormonal changes in the body.
How long does it last?
Many different factors play a role in the lifespan of the implanted pigment. Clients skin type plays the biggest role in longevity and the general outcome of the procedure. Oily Skin types hair strokes may heal softer with a powder finish while drier skin types may heal more crips and defined. Darker pigments tend to last longer. Proper UVA/UVB protection will prevent colour from fading as quickly when in sunny climates. Aggressive skin treatments such as laser, chemical peel, dermabrasion etc. do not get along with micropigmentation.
How long is the appointment?
Appointments are booked on a 1-2 hour basis, allowing for thorough consultation and treatment. Tattooing time varies for each treatment.
What is the appointment like?
We begin by mapping out your new brow design with makeup and use various measuring devices to create ideal symmetry between both eyebrows. Over 5 years of micropigmentation experience and continuing education play a crucial role in choosing the correct blade/needle size for each clients specific skin type as well as correct colour choice for each skin tone. We can also test colour choice against your skin so you can see it prior to the Micropigmentation. A numbing solution is used during the procedure to ensure the appointment is as comfortable as possible for the client The 1.5 hour appointment is extremely interactive to help keep clients nerves at rest. My clients have access to a mirror throughout the entire appointment to check in and watch the process whenever they would like to. Healing is a simple process. There is no scabbing, no need to hide or take time off work, no down time at all. I send clients home with a moisturizing ointment to apply throughout the following 10 days.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Most clients leave the appointment with no redness. The numbing solution used during the appointment helps to control any swelling or redness which means you can continue your day with no funny looks or questions. Clients even come on their lunch hour and return to work directly after the appointment. Your results will vary depending on skin type, lifestyle and the immediate and long-term aftercare of your new tattoo. Once healed (after 4 weeks), the colour will reduce by 30-50 percent. Patchiness and lightness can be perfected during your second session.
Will I need a touch up after my initial appointment? How long will my new brows last?
Most clients require 2 sessions to have their brows perfected. Touch up appointments can be made 4 weeks after your initial appointment with the online booking system. Clients with fuller brows may not need a touchup. Annual touchups are highly recommended to maintain fresh looking results.
Your brow tattoo can last 1-3 years depending on sun exposure, lifestyle and skin type. Oily skin types tend to fade faster than dry skin types.
