The Microbladed Brow is ideal for those needing to fill in sparse and thin areas of semi full natural brows. Faux hair strokes are performed to add fullness, correct the shape and achieve the most natural look. Pigment is implanted with a microblade manually by mimicking the hair stroke patterns found in the natural brow. The results are subtle but very effective for that natural beauty. *This service is not suitable for oily skin.
The Microshaded Brow aka Powder Brow is ideal in achieving the look of fuller, more densely pigmented brows. If you powder or pencil your brows on this is for you. Microshading offers a way to recreate missing areas and the most versatility. The look can be soft and natural or dense and more defined depending on the desired look.
The Combo Brow is the most popular and is the best of both worlds! Create a solid hair stroke pattern to add depth while lightly Microshading to create soft fullness throughout. These brows will POP!
The perfecting touch-up must be booked 6-8 weeks after the initial service.
This is a refresh for the original color done after 9 months. This can also deepen the original color slightly if the client chooses to. However, if you are looking to lighten the original color it may require a correction service.
Absolutely! If you are not prepared or unable to get the Touch Up in addition to your initial service, we suggest not to begin the process until you can commit to both. The Touch Up is extremely important to put the finishing touches needed to complete your brows. Your brows will fade 20-40% during your healing process therefore it is vital to adjust the color and fill in any areas necessary.
***Under NO circumstance can a Touch Up or any adjustments be done prior to the 6 weeks after your appointment. The healing process MUST be complete before we can work on your brows again.
Yes & No. Microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing. The hand tools create thinner, more precise, hairlike strokes that aren’t as deeply ingrained into the skin unlike body tattoos. Semi-Permanent Makeup artist work in the epidermis (surface) layer of the skin, whereas Body Tattoo artists work deeper into the dermis layer. The pigment also differs from that of a tattoo because (1) it’s only semi-permanent, which means your body eventually ends up metabolizing it, so it fades away, and (2) the dye particles are less concentrated in microblading ink than in the ink of a traditional tattoo.
The longevity always varies with each client depending on your skin type, lifestyle, and health. Typically, results last 1-3 years. We recommend a Color Boost every 12-18 months. For example, sun exposure or tanning beds, retinol usage or over exfoliation, & smoking are just a few lifestyle traits that can cause premature fading. Oily skin tends to fade quicker.
Initial Service: 3-4 hours
Touch Up: 1-1.5 hours
Partial Color Boost: 1.5-2.5 hours
Full Color Boost: 2-3 hours
A topical anesthetic containing 5% lidocaine is applied to the area for 30 minutes to minimize discomfort. During the procedure a secondary numbing agent formulated for open skin is applied to reduce any discomfort. Most clients describe what they feel as pressure or very minimal discomfort.

Get Microblading done BEFORE you get botox so your muscles will be in a natural state of movement. Alternatively, if you regularly use botox, you will need to wait at 3 weeks after botox before getting your brow service in order to allow the botox effects on your facial muscles to be complete.
Approximately 4 weeks. We allow an additional 2 weeks before touch up to reassure the healing process is complete as everyone is different.
It is very important to trust the healing process. Your skin will go through many different stages in the healing process. Days 2-5 they are 30-40% darker and thicker. The following days you will experience dry, itchy skin that you should avoid from scratching or touching. You might experience some light scabbing or flakiness. Some strokes will disappear, and a shiny layer of skin will be left with lighter strokes, then reappear in the following weeks. Be patient and let your brows heal.

Tempest was AMAZING. Her bedside-manner in addition to her technical skills was superb and top class. I would make sure to hold onto this one! She is talented!
I had a very good experience. They were great with communication and answering all of my questions. During the procedure I felt very comfortable and she was great with explaining everything in detail.
This was the best experience I could have asked for. Tempest was the best and made everything very easy and comfortable. Highly recommend using Voga INK for your makeup needs!
