Quality policies in aesthetic services: Guarantee of excellence.
If you are being attended to for the first time with us and already have a previous eyebrow pigment procedure, it is mandatory to send a photo before making your reservation through our number (281) 758 9118 via text message or WhatsApp. A photo with good lighting where your eyebrows are well appreciated, do not send a photo with your eyebrows made up, it must be natural.
Once the photo is received, the specialist will evaluate your case and let you know if they can or cannot perform the procedure. In the case of an affirmative response, they will also inform you about the best technique according to your case. There are cases where they recommend laser sessions first to remove the pigment in the eyebrows, once the pigment is clarified, you can decide to perform some technique (this will depend on how much the previous ink lightens).
Once your photo is evaluated, you can proceed to make your reservation.
Please note that we do not make touch-ups on work done by other specialists. If you attend our studio for the first time, you will be charged the full treatment price, not as a touch-up value.
Belkys Melendez, once she evaluates your photo and confirms that the procedure can be done, can perform one of our techniques, and the price charged will be the regular price.
If you make your reservation without sending the photo, please be aware that you will lose your reservation fee.

What to expect at your appointment?
- We will discuss your expectations and ideas about the outcome of your brows.
- We will agree on which brow shape and tone will best suit your face shape.
- We will do the design so you have a basic idea of the final shape.
- When we’re finished with the shape, we will discuss the «right pigment» for your skin type.
- Brow mapping will be completed; at that time marks will be placed on the brows to show symmetry and where we need to correct, add or remove existing brows;
- We will then proceed with the micropigmentation.
- Finally, we will discuss aftercare and plan a follow-up appointment for touch-up.
- Starting on the first day, clean your brows and apply the ointment we will provide 3 times a day for 7 days.
- Wash your hands before applying the ointment to avoid cross-contamination.
- Do not get your brows wet, keep the area dry for the first 3 days
- Remove hair from the brows to avoid the possibility of infection.
- Do not apply makeup near your procedure during this time 7 days.
AVOID FOR 2 WEEKS

- Do not apply tints, waxes, exfoliations, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments near the procedure region.
- Do not undergo any skin care beauty treatments for at least 14 days after the application of your procedure.
- Do not eat shrimp or pork for a week to avoid allergies You may experience the following symptoms during the first few days:
Mild swelling and redness.
Itching in and around the treatment area.
Dry, flaky skin (due to scab formation).
These symptoms are a normal part of the healing process.
The eyebrow color is super dark. Itching on the skin is normal. DO NOT SCRATCH, PEEL OR RUB the brows, as the color may heal unevenly and you could risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Allow the color to flake off naturally. Do not book your appointment near trips or special events at least 15 days before any event as you need post-procedure attention.
THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF RESULTS: These vary due to different skin types, lifestyles, etc.
External agents such as sun, nicotine, and acid-based creams tend to lighten the pigment.
It is possible that during the first session the client may experience some adverse reactions, such as pigment failure or the body rejecting the ink. These reactions are likely to occur in people with oily skin or those with a low ability to retain pigment. If this happens, additional touch-up sessions are required.
Depending on the intensity, it may be necessary to return for 2 (two) additional touch-up sessions. Please note that each touch-up session has an additional cost.
The initial fee for the first session does NOT include the touch-up procedure.
If there are imperfections, the second session should be done within a period of 30 to 60 days after the initial session. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE to predict the client’s skin reaction.
Micropigmentation is performed in 2 sessions on people with good skin fixation. Or 2 to 3 sessions on people with poor fixation.
A second session is not mandatory if the first session is satisfactory, the second session can be scheduled when the client is ready for a touch-up again.
It is rare, but in some people, the pigment may leave some permanent color marks. In this case, a laser removal procedure may be necessary.
The duration of micropigmentation may vary from person to person. It is important to remember that the original color will last only a few months. Unlike a tattoo, micropigmentation is temporary and tends to fade away in a few months.
Micropigmentation is not permanent, the technique consists of implanting pigments in the papillary dermis (first layer of the dermis). It should always be retouched to ensure that the color is improved.
The client should carefully read the pre- and post-service instructions before the procedure and follow all recommended steps.
If the recommendations and proper care are not followed, there is a possibility of infection or allergic reaction. Post-care is very important to avoid any inconvenience caused by inflammation and allergies.
For the procedure, an anesthetic cream is used and some discomfort or pain may be felt. This usually depends on people’s sensitivity, most clients do not feel any discomfort.
In the first few days after the procedure, it is common for eyebrows to appear darker as a result of the healing process, forming scabs that loosen in 7 to 10 days.
Please note that your selected color will be more striking and clearly defined for 10 to 14 days after treatment, but as the healing process occurs, the color will soften and lighten up to 60%.
The approximate healing period is 30 days, however, healing may be prolonged if the immune system is compromised, or if generally stressed and with a poor diet.
Hair by hair eyebrow micropigmentation and hyper-realistic microblading are done in different sessions.
We always recommend keeping the eyebrows clean. You have to remove all the hair that grows outside of your design, so you always have a beautiful and clean shape.
You must maintain long-term care if you want your results to last over time (schedule appointments for touch-ups). In accordance with the requirements of the State of Texas, we are required to inform all clients about the possibility of infections and/or allergic reactions to the pigment or other materials used. However, this is highly unlikely and has rarely been seen during these years of profession, working with high-quality products, using disposable and sterile materials.
