PERMANENT EYEBROWS 3D HAIRSTROKE TECHNIQUE in La Jolla, CA
The Artist's Touch is now offering a new hyper-realistic "3D" method of permanent makeup for eyebrows. It is a relatively new manual method called Microblading or Eyebrow Embroidery or Brow Resurrection.
It is done using a very fine blade made up of needles to deposit pigments into the skin. There is no “spilling” under the skin and the results are more successful than machine tattooed brows. The results are natural looking, crisp, fine hair-like strokes which mimic one's own eyebrow hairs exactly. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows regardless of the amount of hair present. Also, people suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match one's original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is highly recommended to have a touch up done as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment (two touchup appointments are offered at no extra cost at The Artist's Touch).
The results can last anywhere from 1 to 5 depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of color in the skin. The duration of permanent cosmetics is dependent on several factors, including client’s skin type and after care. All tattoos are subject to fading over time. Provided the after care is strictly followed, the Touch ups are recommended as needed. While there is some discomfort most people would not classify it as very painful. Topical anesthetics are used that numb the area locally. Most of the time will be spent analyzing your features and designing the best shape to complement your facial morphology. Your input is greatly valued at this stage, as you are most comfortable with your face. Once the shape and colors have been agreed upon, the tattoo process takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
What can I expect the day of the procedure?
First, your features will be carefully analyzed. Recommendations on shape, design and color according to your individual needs will be made. Once the design has been agreed upon, the cosmetic tattoo will be applied. There may be some swelling and redness following the procedure. The tattoo will appear darker initially, but the color will soften within a few days.
How do you choose designs and colors?
Jenifer has been an artist most of her life. She’s spent years playing with colors and perfecting faces. Although she is working on a different surface - the human skin, not canvas, she still relies on her years of training in and knowledge of color theory and the anatomy of the face. There are many different shades of pigment which can be mixed to create more colors. Every face is different and Jenifer takes great effort to ensure the color is just right for you. Designs are chosen to maximize the potential of your own face. Subtle changers can be made in the placement and shaping of the brow and can make an enormous difference. This is the most time consuming part of the procedure as well as the most important.
What if I don’t like it?
Although cosmetic tattooing is considered to be permanent, the procedure does allow flexibility for color or shape change to some extent. However, it is recommended that you work closely with your technician to ensure that you are both satisfied with the proposed technique. Your technician will allow you to have as much control over the procedure as possible, so there’s very little room for error. If you aren’t 100% sure you would benefit from permanent make up, please opt for a more temporary option.
Jenifer was awesome!
Mayra T. San Diego, CA Jenifer was awesome! I had my eyebrows done with her and I absolutely love them now. I have naturally shaped eyebrows but my hair is a bit thin so I constantly have to fill them in with powder to make them stand out. Since like to swim, surf and workout a lot, I'm not always able to powder them in. I wanted a tattoo done to make them darker, but natural enough so that no one could tell that I had them done without makeup. Jenifer was very aware of my wishes and took her time to make sure they were done exactly the way I wanted them. She showed amazing attention to detail and the procedure was absolutely pain-free. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family and I'm sure I'll get in touch with her should I ever need anything else done. Thank you, Jenifer!
San Diego, CA 4/22/2014 I discovered Jenifer through Groupon. Due to eye allergies, I had my upper & lower lids done and am very pleased with Jenifer's work. She is friendly, personable & accommodating. She explained that the topical anesthetic used today is stronger & more effective than years ago. I was relieved to find this experience to be less painful than it was fourteen years ago. I felt comfortable working with her and appreciated her helpfulness. She also offered to do a lash enhancement (to fill in my sparse eyelash area) free with no additional charge! She includes a free touch up following the procedure to ensure customer satisfaction. Over just a few months, I have received numerous complements on the work she performed including a request for her name & card. I am pleased with the results & plan on having her do my eyebrows next!

A wonderful experience
Maya Z. San Diego, CA I had a wonderful experience with Jenifer. I had permanent makeup done on my eyebrows, and they look great. Basically pain free, which I wasn't expecting. I'm so happy I decided to get them done! I am a makeup artist and perfectionist, and I can honestly say I'm satisfied :) Jenifer, you really do have The Artist's Touch! It was a pleasure meeting and dealing with you :)
I love it!
Nhi T. San Diego, CA I went to Jenifer in need of help. I got my eyeliner permanent make up done else where and boy oh boy it was a mess. I came to Jenifer with confidence, that she can fix the damage that was done. She was so sweet, nice, and very professional. She knew I was nervous and scared. She made me feel at ease. She talked me through it and made sure I was comfortable. The end result was amazing, I love it . My eyes looks fuller and elegant. Her work is a work of art. A touch of an artist!!!! Thank you Jenifer. For those who are thinking about getting permanent make up done, please give her that opportunity to make some magic. She's AMAZING! \(^_^)/
No one will work as hard to make you comfortable and happy
Sunny K. London, UK 12/9/2013 I was really nervous when I met Jenifer as I'd not done anything like this before... But she was incredibly sweet and patient with me. I was worried about getting things right, but if anything she was more of a perfectionist than me! I really appreciated seeing her artwork in her cosy studio and could tell that she has true talent with paintings as well as with people. I was really happy with the work she did and would whole-heartedly recommend her. There's not that many people out there who work as hard to make you feel comfortable and happy - nothing was too much effort, from the warm fluffy blanket to offering me chocolate-covered cherries (mmmm!)
Now that I have my eyebrows done, I'm wondering, what took me so long??!! Before, I used a brush and eye shadow to fill them in everyday. I was referred to Jen from a friend who worked with one of her clients. My friend remarked that the end result looked no different than her coworkers daily/usual fill in job...very natural looking. That really got my attention, so I scheduled a consultation with her. I was nervous because this would be permanent and this is my face we're talking about! Besides, I'm part of the small population on the planet with NO tattoos!! So the idea of the pain on top of the reality that this is permanent was scary. Jen was the best! She made me feel very comfortable from the beginning. She took her time showing me photos and explaining things to me. The fact that she's a professional artist and has some of her beautiful work on her studio walls was very comforting and made me feel like I was in the right place....
I just LOVE Jenifer!!!!
Katie M. San Diego, CA 4/11/2014 I just LOVE Jenifer!!!! She is so kind and extremely talented!!! I felt comfortable with her and wonderful attitude! I had my brows and upper eyeliner done and it looks absolutely fantastic!!! I wish that I would have done it sooner. She is a perfectionist in every way, and does not want you to leave the salon until you are completely happy! I have gone back a couple if times for touch ups and she is just a joy to see every time!! Go to Jenifer and no one else! You will not regret it!!!
