WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is an advanced manual method of cosmetic tattooing or micropigmentation. At Sherri Studios, Microblading is performed using a very fine, sterile, 100% disposable hand tool to deposit pigment into the dermis.
This method is ideal for both men and women wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of natural brow hair present.
Microblading is a multiple-step appointment process. For best results, new clients are offered one Complimentary Enhancement Session. This second session should be scheduled 6-12 weeks after the initial procedure to perfect the shape, color, and density of the brows. Some may choose to have additional Touch-Ups in the future to achieve desired results.
Please be prepared that eyebrow color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper within the first few days of the procedure, but fade significantly (approximately 30-50%) over the healing period (4+ weeks).
Results and longevity vary greatly from person to person. However, annual Touch-Up is recommended to retain ideal shape and saturation of pigment.
WHAT IS AN OMBRE’ BROW TATTOO?
Ombre Brow Tattoo is a type of permanent make-up that deposits pigment into the dermis using machine method. The healed result is similar to that of a brow powder or brow makeup. This technique is custom design for your brows to create the desire fullness and density preferred. This technique lasts longer than microblading and requires less frequent touch-ups. The tails of the brow are darker, and fade into a light start to the brow, giving that perfect ombre makeup affect! The effects will be waterproof, smudge-proof, beautiful brows!
WHAT IS COMBINATION BROW TATTOO?
This is a combination of both Microblading and Ombre Shading. This is the best of both worlds. Shading is done either manually or with a handheld machine. This procedure is great for people who love the hair stroke look but also want added volume.
WHAT IS LASH ENHANCEMENT EYELINER?
Lash Enhancement is similar to tight lining your eyes. It gives the look of thicker, darker and fuller lashes without looking obvious like you have a thick eyeliner on. It can enhance the shape or balance the symmetry of an individual eyes, create the illusion of larger eyes, or affect how the spacing of the eyes is perceived. It gives you the look of full rest nights rest. Permanent Eyeliner can also enhance or intensify eye color and make eyes appear younger and brighter. Great for those who like a more natural look.
WHAT ARE AQUARELLE LIPS (LIP BLUSH)?
Lip blush are a great way to achieve symmetry and color for your lips. It can add volume to your lips that is lost over time due to age. It is a great alternative to fillers or surgery or it can be done in conjunction with these procedures, but it is not meant to replace fillers or surgery. However, it does enhance the fullness of the lips. Many of our clients do both to maximize the effectiveness of lip enhancement treatments. Lip blush gives a natural lip tint finish. It is not meant to look like lipstick. This is completed in two sessions, each 6-12 weeks apart.
WHAT IS BROW TATTOO CORRECTION?
This is for individual who have had permanent makeup done in the past that is improperly shaped or the color has turned to a red or other undesirable shade. *Brow Tattoo Correction Rate* is applied for old tattoo cover-ups or color corrections. We are extremely selective when working over existing tattoos and other tattoo artists' work. If you have had your eyebrows previously tattooed, we request that you email us clear photos of your brows for approval () BEFORE booking your appointment.

WHAT IS LACQUER BROW LAMINATION?
Lacquer brow lamination is a custom formulated, 3 step lamination system that can be applied to even the most stubborn brow hairs and will realign the directional hair growth and overall shape of the brows for up to 8 weeks at a time.
This treatment creates the look of added volume and fullness by combing the brow hairs over sparse areas and often upwards perfect fluffy eyebrow look. Consider it a Brazilian blow out for your brows.
WHAT IS SALINE REMOVAL?
This is a saline removal process to remove a previous microblading work. This treatment is only effective for microbladed eyebrows and not an actually tattooed brow. This process can only remove what’s on the superficial epidermis layer of the skin and nothing deeper. To have a tattoo brow removed laser tattoo removal may be your best option.
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
This varies from person to person because it is considered a “semi-permanent” brow procedure and there are many factors that can affect the longevity of the pigment retained in the skin. Therefore, no guarantee can be made as to how long the results will last. The pigments are designed to gently fade over time. That being said, each client must understand that retention depends greatly on your skin type, texture, oiliness, and long term aftercare.
Each initial procedure takes anywhere from 2-3 hours. During that time, a through consultation is given to better understand client’s desire and what they hope to achieve during their treatment as they fill out all required paper work. This also includes many attempts to draw the perfect eyebrow shape and matching the ideal pigment color. Once we have the final approval from the client then we will start the actual microblading procedure. Keep in mind before and after pictures may be taking with client’s permission.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
This varies from person to person as everyone has different pain threshold. However, most people just feel a slight discomfort and topical anesthetics will be used throughout the procedure to minimize the pain. Women who are on their menstrual cycle may also feel more sensitivity and may not want to have this procedure done during that time of the month. If you are ultra-sensitive and have a very low tolerance for pain, then this may not be the treatment for you.
Both of these treatments are very similar in a sense that they both are used to provide clients with lasting cosmetic results. Both treatments can provide clients with natural alternatives to makeup.
