Calgary, AB – People without full eyebrows use brow pencils or powders for a thicker, natural look. Fortunately, uneven/scanty brows or spending hours filling them in is a relic of the past thanks to Microblading and microshading, touch-up beauty procedures that maintain a perfect look all day long. Cinnamon Girl Clinic has highly trained tattoo artists with years of experience in paramedical and cosmetic tattooing for men and women. They use the latest advanced techniques to offer permanent makeup and aesthetic services that enhance natural beauty.
Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that gives an illusion of naturally fuller brows. While it has been popular for years, clients don’t know the versions that may work for their daily activities or lifestyle choices. Microblading is suitable for individuals with dry to normal skin since oily skin has large pores that tend to blur the strokes due to sebum overproduction. An artist applies a numbing cream on the eyebrows to lessen the pain before using a tiny handheld blade comprising several needles to make scratches and deposit pigment on the skin that looks like natural hairs. The results can last between 18 and 30 months with touchup options to prevent fading.
While Microblading presents naturally dense brows, microshading creates the appearance of powder brows that don’t wash off like makeup. The semi-permanent tattoo can be done by adding a shade or combining a shade and hair strokes along the whole arch to implement colour into the skin underneath the brows, giving them a fuller appearance. Cinnamon Girl Clinic’s artists use an electric/manual pen to create dots on the brows with ink for an airbrushed look. Unlike Microblading, microshading is suitable for all skin types because it’s more resilient to sebum overproduction, camouflages visible blurring, helps with eyebrow symmetry, and lasts longer.
At the clinic, a client’s first appointment lasts an hour, during which an artist explores options, ensuring they break down procedures and offer extensive education. After a session, a client receives at-home care instructions, including prices for touch-up appointments 6-8 weeks later. Alongside Microblading and microshading, the clinic serves clients who have lost their eyebrows due to chemotherapy, alopecia, and other circumstances. The artists understand the confidence issues that may arise, so go above and beyond to help them regain control of their lives.
