Microblading, known as eyebrow embroidery or 3D brows, is a semi-permanent makeup technique used to enhance eyebrows. Microblading uses a handheld blade to deposit pigment while creating 3D realistic hairlike strokes that blend in with your natural hairs. Each stroke is individually created, giving the illusion of fuller eyebrows.
Microblading is ideal for dry to normal skin types and clients who desire to achieve a natural look.
For oily or combination skin, Microblading alone may not retain. The hairlike strokes may migrate or look less defined once healed. In this case, it’s recommended to add-on shading for better retention or to schedule touch-ups more often.

A consultation is usually not necessary unless you have existing permanent makeup that needs to be covered up or corrected.
In this case, prior approval is needed by sending over clear photos or scheduling an in person consultation.
For all first time clients, we recommend to schedule a virtual consultation so you have the opportunity to ask any questions and to learn more about the entire appointment/treatment process.

Mapping: The first part of your appointment will discuss shaping and then proceed with mapping your eyebrows.
Treatment: After the shape is approved, we are ready to begin the treatment which will take about 2.5 hours.
Aftercare: At the end of your appointment, aftercare and the healing process will be explained.
We use several measuring tools (golden ratio compass, eyebrow ruler, eyebrow caliper) to find the best shape and symmetry for your unique facial bone structure. The shape will be customized and proportional to best fit your facial features.
We will review the shape and make any changes needed before moving forward with the procedure.
The color chosen will match your eyebrow hairs for the most natural look.
For best results, permanent makeup is performed in two sessions. The initial session is about 3 to 3.5 hours long. The second session, a touch-up, is scheduled within 6-12 weeks and is about 2 hours long.
The healing process and duration is unique to each individual and therefore, results do vary. Final adjustments are made at the 6-12 weeks touch-up session. Afterwards, an annual touch-up is recommended to boost color and definition.
First 2 days: The color will be a little dark. Slight swelling and/or redness for 1-2 days following the procedure.
After about 6 days: The color will appear to be very light
After 10 days: The color will resolve itself to its appropriate shade
General Healing Expectations:
● The color will appear softer once your brows are completely healed. It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the color during the healing process.
● Complete healing takes 30 – 45 days.
● Your touch up appointment (after 4-8 weeks) will perfect your look adding hair strokes if needed, and going over any faded strokes.
● Your brows will appear approximately 20% to 25% darker and wider than they will be when completely healed.
● Natural exfoliation will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and narrow the width of your brows.
● Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows will initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire, this is all part of the healing process.
Be patient and trust the process!
For 10 days after the procedure:
Makeup (eyebrow & forehead area)
Sweat, exercise, steam, saunas, pools, sunbathing & water
Pick on or scrub your brows (may cause permanent scarring)
Use any other products or creams except for the Angel Care Gel
The pain level is very minimal and most experience little to no pain (depending on the client’s pain tolerance).
Redness and minor swelling is common post-treatment and will feel similar to a small sunburn. The redness will subside within 1-2 days.
A topical anesthetic is used for numbing during the treatment and may contain the ingredients lidocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine
Ideal for all skin types, particularly oily/combination skin
Ombré/Powder brows is a semi-permanent technique that uses a digital tattoo machine to create a soft shaded or powdery makeup look. The density of the pigment implanted starts soft and light at the beginning of the brow and gradually gets darker and heavier towards the tail.
The look is customizable and can be soft or more bold depending on the client’s preference. Recommended for clients who have large pores, oily skin, would like to coverup existing permanent makeup or desire more of a makeup look.
Permanent makeup can last from 1 to 3 years depending on your skin type, regimen, lifestyle, medications and how well aftercare instructions are followed.
*Aftercare is 50% of the total treatment success!

If you have existing permanent makeup by a different artist, please send clear photos in natual lighting by text at (704) 388-2428 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to booking an appointment.

If your existing tattoo is too saturated and/or the shape cannot be corrected, removal is recommended. With Angel Tattoo Removal, the skin will need to heal for a minimum of 6 weeks before continuing with any PMU treatments. Multiple removal treatments may be recommended for optimal results.
Angel Removal is a non-laser, manual technique, designed to safely remove tattoo pigment from the skin. In particular, pigment from PMU treatments, using a 3 step process.
It removes all colors and all pigments in the market and is the first removal product specifically designed for eyebrows.
It is a chemical method that uses active ingredients of acids from antioxidant fruits such as, rice, cocoa, and wheat, among others to attract pigment to the skin’s surface to be eliminated.
The rehabilitation period is 24 hours with little to no scabbing, the treatment is painless, and does not cause hypo or hyperpigmentation.
During the first 24 hours avoid water, steam, saunas, exercise, sweat, pools, tanning/sunbathing, face powder, makeup, facials, alcohol and smoking.
Clean the area with dry cotton rounds to remove lymph buildup.
Day 2: Keep the area clean, apply solution (provided in kit) nightly for 7 days, and wash the area in the morning.
Results can be seen after 2-3 weeks and pigment will continue to leave the area for up to 30 days.
Angel Removal treatments need a minimum of 40 days, for the skin to heal, before a new treatment can be performed. A minimum of 50-60 days will be necessary for more mature or sensitive skin types.
Depending on the depth and color of the existing tattoo, more than 1 session may be required for optimal results.
The deeper the pigment was implanted in the layers of the skin, the more sessions of removal are needed.
Yellow and green pigments are the most challenging to remove.
Removal can be beneficial for clients whose existing permanent makeup has turned red, blue, gray or is overly saturated/dark.
It can also be beneficial for correcting shape or completely starting over.
