Permanent brows

AHS Approved. Licensed. Certified. Insured.

At Brilliance By Beale, you're in good hands. We offer multiple techniques to achieve the perfect brow for you. All techniques are considered permanent tattoos, however we do expect a degree of fading over time due to normal activities such as exfoliation, sweat, and sun exposure.


Microblading is the art of manually implanting pigment into the upper layers of the skin using a sterile, one time-use tool to mimic brow hairs. The "Natural" look. 

Machine Brows/Powder Brows/Pixel Brows are completed using a machine which deposits pigment into the upper layers of the skin for a softer, ombre effect. The "Make-up" look. 


Combo/Hybrid Brows are a combination of microblading and machine work, bringing together the best of both worlds.


Permanent Makeup is a great option if you suffer from Alopecia, Trichotillomania, are a cancer survivor, or have trouble with patchy, uneven or thin brows. It enhances your existing brows by adding depth, color, and a defined shape that looks natural.

Brilliance is highly trained in both natural-looking and bold, glamorous brows - giving you the freedom to choose the look that suits you and your lifestyle best.

FAQ

What are the pros?

Minimal discomfort
Minimal downtime
Suitable for most skin types
Competitive pricing
Low Maintenance
Beach, gym and hike proof

Does it hurt?

We use a two-stage topical freezing process to make your session as comfortable as possible. You may feel some minor discomfort but it will subside as soon as the session is over. We promise, it is worse in your imagination! Some clients are so comfortable that they fall asleep. 

Keep in mind: Coffee and alcohol will increase sensitivity. 

What are the risks?

As with any invasive cosmetic procedure which involves the skin, the biggest risk is infection. Pre-procedure tools  are disinfected before and after use and microblades/shading needles come in sterilized packages and are one-time use only. 

Other risks include: allergic reactions to nickle, the numbing cream, or the pigment. 

What is the downtime?

You can expect the area to feel a bit like a sunburn that night. Over the next 2 weeks you will notice that the brows form a protective layer over each stroke, which will fall off naturally as part of the healing process. You cannot submerge the brows in water, apply makeup on or around them, remove the protective layer or sweat heavily into the brows during this time.

How long does it last?

The longevity of your permanent makeup will depend on 3 things: Cheryl's skills, your skin type, and lifestyle. Skin type plays the biggest role - the more oily you are, the softer your results will be and you may require touch ups more frequently. Dry skin is best, as color will remain crisp and last twice as long. 1-2 years is standard for everyone. 

PLEASE NOTE: This is a tattoo. While we expect permanent makeup to lighten and fade over time due to sun exposure, exfoliation and sweat, it may never completely disappear for some people. 

Who is not a good candidate?

Permanent brow makeup is not for everyone, unfortunately. You may experience less than ideal results if you:

  • Have oily skin and large pores

  • Have thick, coarse brow hair

  • Have ruddy undertones (characterized by warm cheeks, red noses and blotchiness typically seen in some red heads and blondes)

  • Have mature skin/deep wrinkles in the forehead

  • Have extremely sun damaged skin

PLEASE NOTE: If you meet two or more of these criteria we do not recommend permanent brow makeup. 

What are the contraindications?
