Microshading is one of may permanent make up styles that can be created using a digital machine to deposit pigment in to the recticular dermal layer of the skin using with an ultra-fine needle. Other styles include Powdered Brows, 3D Combo Brows and Hairstrokes.
These styles can all be created with a Microblade and Microblading uses a manual tool with multiple needle configurations to create superficial incisions, or a tapping method to deposit pigment in the epidermis layer of the skin.
Both of these methods are forms of Permaent Cosmetic Tattooing

Most of our clients report little or no pain. Often they say it’s a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10, at most. Some clients have literally slept through the appointment! We leave a topical anesthetic on the eyebrow area for 20 minutes before we begin the process, so this leaves most clients totally numb during the procedure.
In summary, microshading is intended to be a painless experience, certainly less painful than traditional tattooing on account of the numbing cream. Let the numbing cream take effect, and relax!

Here at Prime Lash & Brow Boutique our method of hair removal is waxing. Even with the rise of threading waxing is the most common from of hair removal a
among wax professionals. Wax at a proper tempature is applied to the area to be waxed in the direction of the hair growth. There are two types of wax: hard wax and soft wax. Hard wax is better suited for sensitive skin and is often used on the face, underarm. Soft wax typically used for the brows, legs, chest and back. Waxing reduces hair growth when done regularly. With waxing the hair is removed from the root, over time it can grow back softer and finer.
