WHICH STYLE IS BEST FOR ME?

Before you read about the different styles, it is important to learn about which category your skin tone fits under the Fitzpatrick Scale.  The Fitzpatrick Scale is widely used amongst PMU artists to help us choose the correct pigment color but to also determine which style give you the best results as it relates to pigment retention and slower fading. Please take a look at the scale below to determine which category you may fall under to better guide you to style selection.

WHAT IS MICROSHADING OR OMBRE POWDER BROWS?

Microshading or Ombre Brows is a cosmetic tattoo procedure that involves the use of a handheld machine that deposits pigment into the eyebrow area to achieve a filled-in look, similar to using a eyebrow pencil or powder. 

Best For:

All Fitzpatrick Skin Types

All Skin Types (Especially Oily Skin)

WHAT ARE NANO STROKES?

Nano Strokes are an alternative style, similar to Microblading but this involves the use of the cosmetic tattoo machine (used for Microshading). This style provides natural-like hair strokes to the brow area and the procedure is less invasive to the skin than the traditional Microblading technique that involves small "cuts" to create the hair stroke.

Best For:

Fitzpatrick I-III

Combination Skin

WHAT ARE COMBINATION BROWS?

Combination Brows are just as the name describes: a combination of both styles (Ombre Brows and Nano Brows). This is a 3-D, hybrid style that is ideal for anyone that wants to achieve a natural yet full and fluffy look to your brows. This style involves hair strokes at the front of the eyebrows with shading towards the middle and end of the eyebrows.

Best For:

Fitzpatrick III-VI

Great of Combination/Oily Skin

IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?

Since a topical anesthetic is included in the service, you should feel very minimal discomfort. On a scale of 1-10, the pain may reach a 2.
