PDO Thread Lift

People love the instant lift of sagging skin that takes years off the face and neck.

  1. Natural results: Natural yet noticeable results can be achieved with the thread lift. There’s no worry of looking“ over-pulled” or “wind-blown” as with a surgical face lift.
  2. Non-Surgical: Since the procedure doesn’t involve any cutting and incisions, it doesn’t leave any permanent scars like traditional facelift surgery.
  3. Minimal downtime: Because the procedure is far less invasive than a surgical facelift, the downtime is very minimal. Most people are able to return to work soon after the procedure.
  4. Collagen stimulation: The threads stimulate your own skin to gradually produce more collage in the treatment areas over several months. You not only get the benefit of an instant lift, your skin also gets firmer and tighter over time!
  5. Cost-effective: Thread lift is a very cost-effective way to achieve a more youthful appearance compared to other aesthetic procedures, like Ultherapy.
  6. Safety: The thread lift procedure is very safe. In fact, it can be even safer than dermal fillers. Although very rare, dermal fillers have a chance of being injected into blood vessels, which can result in skin necrosis or other major side effects. Since the threads are thin, they don’t have the potential to block blood flow in vessels. Also, since the procedure is done under local anesthetic, it doesn’t carry the risk of general anesthesia used in a traditional surgical facelift.

Our Skin Deep LIFT-IT procedure with PDO lifting threads is designed to subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO threads come in a variety of textures for customized treatments per patient. This is a minimally invasive / minor surgical procedure depending on the treatment you discuss with your provider.

PDO sutures are a type of material used for thread lifts. PDO, which stands for polydioxanone, is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable for minimally invasive thread lifts. There are three main textures of PDO sutures: mono, cog, and screw threads. Mono threads are singular, smooth sutures that are anchored to the face that provide a small lift to the face. Cog threads have a barbed texture that provide better lift and increased collagen production. Screw threads have 1-2 intertwined threads which provide volume to the treated area. For patients who only desire skin tightening and rejuvenation, mono threads may be sufficient. Patients who desire more lifting and volume will better benefit from textured cog or screw threads.

PDO threads, will be used in a minimally invasive procedure to target sagging jowls, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, unwanted mid face wrinkles, sagging neckline, undefined jawlines, etc., and to pull up the targeted areas with the goal of achieving a desired look. Threads is a temporary procedure and will not stop the process of aging. It will help to temporarily tighten skin and improve wrinkles. From patient to patient, results from this procedure may vary, and continuation of threads in the future is recommended for maintaining the effects of the lift.

The provider at Skin Deep Cosmetics & Aesthetics may provide you medication or local anesthesia to reduce the pain or discomfort you may feel during the procedure.

Age: 25 to 60-year-old patients are typical but may vary depending on other factors on this list.

Skin type: excessively too thin-skinned or thick-skinned patients are not ideal candidates for a thread procedure. When patients are too thin-skinned, their veins may be seen easily and when threads are used, they will have significant bunching and dimpling. When patients are too thick-skinned, they will have a thick dermal layer and even if the threads are placed in the correct plane, the lift will not be apparent.

Laxity: patients who have significant laxity and redundancy are not good candidates for this procedure as the threads can cause bunching due to prominent lift.

Medical history: patients who are on blood thinners, smoke cigarettes regularly, and drink heavily are not good candidates for the procedure.

Surgical history: patients who have received surgery in recent months (3-4 months) are not recommended to receive this procedure due to their immune system possibly being compromised, which may lead to a longer downtime and possibility of infection after the threading procedure.

Although PDO thread lifts are low risk procedures, every surgical procedure involves a certain amount of risk and complications.

Relapse: over time and as the patient ages, wrinkles and sagging will recur.

Bleeding & bruising: like most other procedures, there is a possibility of bleeding and bruising, but they will subside after a couple of days and 1-2 weeks, respectively. Bruising is quite normal after the procedure.

Pain or discomfort: due to threads being placed in the skin, there may be discomfort and tightness in the area for several days after the procedure but will lessen over time. Pain and discomfort can be managed by taking Tylenol. Ibuprofen (ex. Motrin, Advil, etc.) or other pain relievers.

Swelling or tenderness: some patients may experience additional swelling or tenderness at the injection site and in rare occasions, pustules might form. These reactions might last for as long as approximately 2 weeks, and in appropriate cases may need to be treated with oral corticosteroids or other therapy.

Infection: although a very thin needle is used, common injection-related reactions could occur. These may include but are not limited to swelling, pain, itching, discoloration, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. This may last from a few hours to a few days.

Inflammatory reaction: there is a possible risk of an inflammatory reaction at the injection sites for patients considering laser treatment, chemical skin peeling, or any other procedure based on a skin response after a PDO thread lift treatment, or for patients who recently had such treatments and the skin has not healed completely.

Scars: usually incisions are not made. However, should an incision be made during the procedure, it will be made at the hair line to reduce visibility of any scar.

Disorder of face movement: this is rare but depending on the pulling within the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) layer, it can affect a branch of the facial nerve and can cause disorders in facial movements, but this typically recovers over time.

Skin necrosis: although extremely rare, this may occur if blood circulation is not sufficient.

Hair loss: depending on the procedural design, minimal hair loss may appear at the insertion site surrounding the temporal fascia.

Damage to deeper structures: deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels, and muscles may be damaged during the procedure. The potential for this to occur varies according to the location the procedure is being performed. Injury to deeper structures may be temporary or permanent.

Dimpling and bunching: dimpling and bunching may occur due to the barbed threads being placed inside the skin, but this can be massaged out by the provider.

Thread visibility: threads may become visible in patients with thin skin or when inserted into thin-skinned areas of the face. Should this occur, additional treatments or surgery may be necessary.

Asymmetry and thread migration: after the procedure, there is a possibility of asymmetry and thread migration, which may require further treatment or thread removal.

Thread breakage: in rare cases, the thread may break, which may require further treatment or thread removal.

Drug and local anesthesia: patient may show symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, light headedness, and fainting (and even death is possible) from the use of local anesthetics and epinephrine. You should discuss with your patient in advance of any allergic sensitivity and reactions to anesthesia the patient had experienced in the past.

Delayed healing: complications may ensue as a result of smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, or making extreme facial expressions. Smoking and vaping are STRONGLY discouraged for a period 1-2 weeks following the procedure.

Contraindications: pregnancy, acute illness/immune system diseases, tendency toward keloid or hypertrophic scarring, bleeding disorders, a non-absorbable implant (silicone) in area of thread insertion, chemotherapy patients, cutaneous neurofibromatosis (nerve tumors), inflammation of the skin in areas to be treated, or any known allergy or foreign body sensitivities to plastic biomaterials.

PDO threads should not be used in patients who have previously experienced the above- mentioned hypersensitivity or those with severe allergies. Also, PDO threads should not be used in areas with active inflammation or infections (e.g., cysts, pimples, rashes, or hives).

RECOMMENDED TO AVOID:

Rubbing, massaging or touching the treated area/areas.
Please refrain from putting on makeup, or other facial products directly after and the first 24 hours. Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages (beer, liquor and wine) and Smoking.
To decrease risk of bruising, avoid taking blood thinning medications one week prior and after to procedure, such as Advil, Aspirin, Aleve, fish oil, herbal supplement / vitamins.

FOLLOW UP:

You will see immediate improvements after your treatment, and best results will be seen between 6-12 weeks post lift procedure. This is when collagen is stimulated, and the threads have been securely attached. You can consult with your provider at your follow up appointment to add more threads within 2 to 4 weeks after your initial treatment. If this is needed per your provider there will be an additional cost per thread or area.

Smooth Rejuvenation
PDO Threads

PDO (Polydioxanone) Mono Threads are a soluble synthetic material that have been used for more than 30 years and have been used in many surgeries worldwide. Scientific research has proved that PDO threads not only tighten the skin but also stimulate the re-production of collagen and ultimately elastin fibers. 

All patients wishing to have PDO Mono Threading would initially require a consultation with a fully qualified and trained professional. The procedure is more suitable for patients within a specific age range, generally mid 30’s and upwards, we are aware that the effects of aging can become apparent earlier than this, aging is generally associated with the skin tissue thinning due to the breakdown in collagen, resulting in skin sagging, creases becoming more prominent and ultimately wrinkles appearing.

The most popular area to treat with threads is the Lower Face. The lower face tends to be the most successful and satisfying, based on this is the areas patients more often notice signs of skin looseningin this area. However threads can be used all over the face and body including:

  • Full Face
  • Neck
  • Jaw line
  • Mid-Face
  • Chin Area
  • Forehead (Brow lift)
  • Nose to mouth lines (Nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines (vertical mouth lines)
  • Eye Bags (are beneath the eyes)
  • Acne Scars (acne meshing)
  • Decolleté
  • Body (consult with your Aesthetics Specialist for more information)

This procedure has been known to be a pain-free treatment which starts with numbing the treatment site. This ensures you feel no discomfort during your treatment. The PDO threads will be inserted via needles known as cannulas. Some tenderness may be experienced after the first few hours following treatment.

PMU

Microblading

Microblading is a technique that requires a handheld manual tool with micro-blades, creating fine, hair-like strokes within the brow. It’s for people who want a natural look, as well as for those who have very fine hair. The strokes create fine ink lines that simulate the look of fine hair.

Combination Brow

A Combination brow is the best of both worlds. You’ll have beautiful hair-like strokes in the head of the brow, mimicking hair, and toward the tail, we’ll transition into a very soft gradient powder.

Ombre/Powder Brow

Ombre brows are another term for powder brows. Instead of a manual tool, this technique uses a machine to implant pigment softly with a nanoneedle in layers, producing a gradient of color. We focus on going darker to lighter, from the tail of the brow to the head, creating an ombre look.

This treatment is best for a client who prefers the look of makeup or powder on their brows. If you want a more natural brow, we can apply a very light powder look, or if you want a look that resembles makeup, we can do that as well. Normally, an ombre/powder brow will last longer than microblading.

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 micro-pigmentation 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 color choice for each skin tone.  We can also test color choice against your skin so you can see it prior to the Micro-pigmentation.  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.  

Aftercare is crucial, it is very important to follow these instructions for the full 10-day healing period to ensure proper healing and color retention FOR THE BEST RESULTS. Keep in mind that in many cases, some unevenness or loss of color is to be expected. This is the purpose of the touch-up or what I like to call the perfecting visit. Results will vary for all individuals.

  • NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on the treated area for 10 days, unless given by your technician.
  • 3 to 4 hours after procedure clean your eyebrows with the aftercare pad provided in your aftercare care. Make sure to wipe off well any remaining pigment or lymph fluid.
  • Do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate. Picking or scratching your scabs can cause scarring.
  • Do not expose your healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, hot tubs, saunas, saltwater, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water, skin creams, ointments or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for 3-4 weeks following your procedure
  • Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days. Sweating can cause a decrease in pigment retention causing the work to fade.
  • NO facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • DO NOT let water touch your eyebrows when showering or washing your hair for the first 10 days post-procedure.
  • No tweezing, waxing or electrolysis for 2 weeks post-procedure.

Approximate daily healing schedule

Day 1-2 Your brows are approximately 20 to 40% darker, bolder and more solid than your healed result. Under pigment, the skin is red and pigment has been deposited into layer of skin containing dead skin cells. This combination is what is giving the appearance of a darker color. There may be minimal swelling but because typically the eyebrow area does not retain much fluid, swelling will be limited. The top layers of skin will begin to shed on about day 5 to 7, and you will see a loss of color. This is normal. Do not scratch or pick. It is normal for the area to be slightly itchy while healing.

Day 3-4 Your eyebrows may begin to itch and the pigment may appear somewhat raised. Do not scratch or pick Please!

Day 5-7 The skin is now rapidly exfoliating and will shed evenly if left alone. The color under the exfoliating skin will start to appear very light and day by day it will start to appear darker. Please be patient and give the color a couple of weeks to become darker.

Day 30-40 Now is the time to critique your brows, the tattoo has now become part of the dermis, seen under the epidermis.

Shall you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 713-000-0000.

Long term care

  • Use a good sunscreen after 10 days, sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics
  • If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please inform the technician/your care provider of your permanent cosmetics.
  • The use of Retin-A, chemical peels and acid peels or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used on the forehead area as well as around the lips will cause a permanent makeup of the eyebrows or lips to fade prematurely.
The average for a PMU treatment is 1 to 3 years for richness in color and shape. Again it is permanent, but the color will fade over time. It varies person to person because it is heavily affected by lifestyle and care (example: sun exposure, product use, skin type, climate changes etc). We at Skin Deep Cosmetics and Aesthetics recommend yearly touch ups for brows and every two years for lips and eyes. This will help keep the color rich and the shape intact.
 
Please remember that 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 color from fading as quickly when in sunny climates. 
Aggressive skin treatments such as laser, chemical peel, dermabrasion etc. do not get along with micro-pigmentation.  

keep the color rich and the shape intact.

Yes, we do recommend a touchup after your first initial appointment. 

Only if you have had permanent makeup done previously somewhere else or if there is a skin condition you are concerned about.

We ideally would like to meet with you before treatment Our consultations are complimentary.

We always strive to make every client as comfortable as possible. Most usually experience minimal to no pain at all. We apply anesthetics both before the procedure and during the procedure to ensure that discomfort is kept to a minimum.

None! Most clients have their procedure done and then go back to work or go about their day. Nothing you have to do post procedure except for cleaning the area (you will be provided all the necessary after care). Just be sure to keep the area dry and clean. Thats it!

Plasma Fibroblast

The healing process can last anywhere from five to ten days. Immediately after treatment, it’s normal to see a carbon crust, resembling light scabbing, on the affected area, since plasma procedures create a tiny micro-wound. During healing, the face should be kept dry so that these scabs can fall off naturally, but after the scabs have fallen away, clients can return to washing their face and moisturizing as usual.

Note that it’s normal to see some redness and swelling in the wake of a plasma treatment, because just like baby skin, redness shows the newness of the skin. Once the scabs have gone, you can also apply makeup to your skin to hide the redness temporarily.

You can shower soon after the procedure, the following day or even the same evening, depending on the depth of the treatment and its location. During the initial healing period, when the carbon crust remains on the treated area, make certain to wash gently and carefully. We recommend using a Ph balance soap, which you will receive with your aftercare kit. We also strongly advise that you wash with your fingertips, not with a face towel, to avoid abrading the sensitive treated areas.

We always recommend more than one treatment, but we like to see how the initial procedure has healed before prescribing an exact number. Typically, you’ll see amazing results within the first week of healing, and most often, we’ll go on to recommend two to three treatments, especially for scarring and stretch marks.

Unlike many who offer plasma treatments, Skin Deep includes two follow-up LED treatments with each plasma service! These LED treatments are applied to the treated area during the healing process, helping to reduce initial redness after the carbon crust falls off. The first LED treatment will be around day five, calming any redness or irritation and encouraging more collagen growth to ease your skin’s transition. The second treatment will follow one to two weeks later.

Lip Blush

WHAT IS A LIP BLUSH?

Keeping pain and discomfort to a minimum, with hassle free healing and post care process, this technique yields soft and natural looking results. The delicate nature of this technique makes tinted lips appropriate for almost all skin tones and types. Lip Blushing is a soft and natural blending of pigment color into the lips. There is no demarcation, just a soft color blushing. It will enhance the fullness of the lips. This is a multiple-step process done in a minimum of two sessions.

•Lips appear more defined without surgery or fillers

•Restores color to lips that have become pale and uneven

•Corrects Blurred lip lines

•Camoflauges scars and hypopigmentation

•Kiss-proof and smudge-proof color

•Make lips appear fuller and larger

•May eliminates the daily use of pencils to outline, fill-in, or reshaping lip borders

•Saves time and money!

Normally a LipBlush appointment will not take longer than 3.5 hours. This includes our consultation, paperwork review, mapping, as well as a 30 minute numbing prior to the the service. I always book out 4 hours for a LipBlush appointment. I never want a client to feel rushed, nor will i ever rush through a procedure. You just cant rush perfection.

Of all permanent makeup procedures, the permanent lip enhancement procedure is the most sensitive. However we do numb your lips prior to and throughout the procedure with a highly effective topical anesthetic for your comfort.

Pre-Care Instructions are designed and MUST BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service. Excessing bleeding and sensitivity during the procedure will dilute and expel the pigment color and lead to poor results.

* Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.

  • If you are a frequent smoker or “sun worshipper” the topical anesthetics used during the treatment may not last as long and also can lead to poor retention and poor lasting results.

Lip Blush healing is really quit quick and easy. Expect moderate swelling up to 2 days following the procedure. The lips will feel dry and may make the lips feel thick just be sure to keep them covered in the aftercare ointment. Lip pigment color may fade up to 50% after the first few days. While healing your lip color will look spotty and the borders may look uneven. This is due to oxidation of the pigment and the regeneration of the skin. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired lip results. By day 7 post procedure the lips should be fully healed and you may apply what ever lipgloss or lipstick you like. Your Perfecting Session must be scheduled 6-12 weeks after your first initial appointment and is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color, achieve symmetry, and density in the shape.

In short NO not at all. Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a base, so it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all. A full pigmented lipstick, liquid lipstick or lipgloss will completely cover your Lip Blush if you so desire.

Your lips will look swollen and slightly larger than normal and look as though you may have had a slight lip filler injection. The degree of this varies from person to person. The pigment and lip color will look darker initially, like a bold lipstick. The size of your lips will shrink back to normal and the color will significantly fade up to 50% within the first 4 days. You will lose color on the inside of your lips first, the edges last. Right after the procedure lips normally feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. Similar to how a sunburn feels.

Most clients require 2 sessions to have their LIP BLUSH perfected. Touch up appointments can be made 4 weeks after your initial appointment with the online booking system.  Annual touchups are highly recommended to maintain fresh looking results.

In short NO not at all. Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a base, so it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all. A full pigmented lipstick, liquid lipstick or lipgloss will completely cover your Lip Blush if you so desire.

Yes lip filler and Lip Blush service work very well together. We ask that you space lip filler and Lip Blush Service by at least a month and that you are fully healed.

I always ask clients to bring in their favorite lipgloss or photos of the color they are hoping to achieve. You and your artist will discuss which colors suit you based on your natural lip color as well as your preferences. Once your lips have healed, you may still enhance or change the color of your lips at anytime with conventional makeup. Your new lip tattoo is designed to act as a base, so it doesn’t mean you should throw out your lippy collection at all. 

Not to worry.. a Lip Blush is a can still be done even if there is a scar on the lips. The service will actually camouflage the scar helping to reduce its appearance.

Jamie has found that dry healing gives better retention results. But the most important reason for dry healing is less risk of irritation and allergic reactions which can not only affect retention but can scar the procedure area. With dry healing you allow the body to heal itself activating your immune system without any added products. Of course each person is evaluated individually and should one need a product due to skin type or procedure reaction we will 
recommend accordingly.

Normally an Brow appointment will not take longer than 3 hours. This includes our consultation, paperwork review, mapping, as well as a 30 minute numbing prior to the the service. I always book out 4 hours for a permanent eyeliner appointment. I never want a client to feel rushed, nor will i ever rush through a procedure. You just cant rush perfection.

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.

We choose the shape of your new brows together. Whether you are just looking to enhance the fullness of your natural brow, or create a whole new shape, we will take it one step at a time. Your new shape will be applied with a cosmetic pencil first so that you can see how it will look your face. We will not start the procedure until you are happy with what we have created.

Absolutely, this is a great option for those who suffer from Alopecia, Trichotillomania, or have been through Chemotherapy. Microblading can even correct past wax catastrophe, over tweezing, or the normal hair thinning that occurs post menopause.

Microblading after your 6-8 week touch up can last around 1 year. For Ombe Brows, 2 years. 

Yes, we do recommend a touchup after your first initial appointment. 

PMU Eyeliner

Permanent eyeliner frames the eyes and can make eyelashes appear thicker, darker and fuller. It may eliminate the need to apply eyeliner with makeup. It can enhance the shape or balance the symmetry of your eyes, create the illusion of larger eyes, or affect how the spacing of the eyes is perceived. Permanent eyeliner can also enhance or intensify eye color and make eyes appear brighter.
For those who prefer a more natural look, eyeliner is applied along the base of the lashes  making it appear as though you have full and thick lashes.
For those who desire a more dramatic look, Stardust Eyeliner will be a thicker “smokier” .
• Define your eyes
• No more smudges, smears, or worn-off eyeliner
• Great for people with allergies to cosmetic products
• Saves time and money
• Great for people with unsteady hands or vision problems
• Swim, shower or exercise with confidence
• Fills in thin or light colored eyelashes
• Ideal for total eyelash loss due to trichotillomania or Alopecia

Normally an eyeliner appointment will not take longer than 2 hours. This includes our consultation, paperwork review, mapping, as well as a 30 minute numbing prior to the the service. I always book out 3 hours for a permanent eyeliner appointment. I never want a client to feel rushed, nor will i ever rush through a procedure. 

We always strive to make every client as comfortable as possible. Most usually experience minimal to no pain at all. We apply anesthetics both before the procedure and during the procedure to ensure that discomfort is kept to a minimum.
The eyeliner or lash line procedure is more psychologically scary to most clients than anything else. The discomfort is relative as everyone has a different level of sensitivity. An pre-numbing anesthetic is applied to the eyelids for numbing prior and during the procedure. Every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the duration of the procedure.
Pre-Care Instructions are designed and MUST be strictly followed to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service. Excessing bleeding and sensitivity during the procedure will dilute and expel the pigment color and lead to poor results.
Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure.
If you are a frequent smoker or “sun worshipper” the topical anesthetics used during the treatment may not last as long and also can lead to poor retention and 
poor lasting results..

There will be swelling and possibly some redness. The swelling may last up to 48 hours.  The color will appear darker the first week. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. No need to go into hiding 🙂

It is normal to experience minimal swelling and tenderness immediately following your procedure. This usually subsides within a few hours. The first week following your treatment, the pigment will appear much darker than how it will appear once it has healed. Around the 1st or 2nd week post procedure, the skin naturally exfoliates and sheds. During weeks 4-8 when the skin completes healing, you will see the pigment become more visible. A Perfecting/ Touch up visit approximately 8-12 weeks after your first initial appointment is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color, achieve symmetry, and density in the shape.

Most clients require 2 sessions to have their EYELINER perfected. Touch up appointments can be made 4 weeks after your initial appointment with the online booking system.  Touchups are highly recommended to maintain fresh looking results. 
 

Touch up appointments are optional. We suggest that if you want to maintain your eyeliner so that it always looks its best, plan on scheduling a touch up once every two years.

We choose together! Many clients have a good idea of what they are wanting but some are not quite sure. Not to worry I am here to help. I redraw on the design as many times as needed until we are 100% sure its perfect. I also advise clients to bring in photos of what they like and are hoping to achieve. I always advise to start out on the conservative side of thickness and color as we can always add to design and color at  touch up.

Eyeliner appointments must be booked  the phone by calling our concierge 713-331-9414
