Wax

My “Wax” is from Nufree Nudesse who’s products are made in the USA. It is the gold standard in hair removal and is carried by thousands of professional salons throughout the world. It was developed over 25 years ago to help plastic surgeons remove hair from a patient before surgery. This video explains why I use Nufree nudesse.

Tend Skin – After Waxing

My recommended after wax treatment is Tend Skin. It is highly effective at reducing ingrown hair, razor bumps, and burns.

Tend Skin® Solution reduces the appearance of ingrown hair, razor bumps, and redness from shaving, waxing, electrolysis or laser hair removal. Tend Skin® Solution is great for women after shaving legs, bikini lines and underarms as well as for men who see redness after shaving their faces.

Anti-bacterial and Antiseptic Lotion

My antiseptic is Finipil who’s products are made in the USA. Finipil is a scientifically approved, patented, and FDA registered OTC antiseptic made by Equibal Labs which is applied on clients after and in between hair removal services. This antiseptic cream destroys 99.999% of bacteria and cools and soothes the skin while protecting the empty hair follicle.

Finipil does NOT clog pores like so many other greasy antiseptics, instead it actually cleans while moisturizing them. It was originally created for comfort and safety after and between hair-removal treatments. It is also perfect for use after other old-fashioned wax-care services. Finipil® is a patented, FDA-registered antiseptic cream that destroys and kills 99.999% of bacteria (germs, staph, etc.), and cools and soothes the skin, reduces redness all while helping to protect hair follicles from infection.

Brow Pencils, Gel, Powder, Stencils, Tweezers, and Scissors

All these items come from Anastasia of Beverly Hills. Anastasia is committed to cruelty-free product formulation, testing, and development.

Microblading Inks

My go-to pigments are Aqua Eyebrow Pigments. They are Vegan and Cruelty-Free and made in the USA.

Aqua Brow Pigments is a versatile line of brow colors that work with and produce fantastic results. It doesn’t dry too fast or too quick, it’s not too thick or too thin and it has been producing amazing healed and aged results for over 23 years.  Aqua is highly concentrated which means more saturation = more healed in color and longer lasting. There is a reason Aqua has been one of the top selling lines in the world since inception.  Tested and approved by thousands of artists worldwide.  

Healing Creams

I use Zensa Healing Cream after Microblading and Nano Brow procedures as it is clinically proven to reduce itching, minimize scarring, treat skin conditions and promote easy recovery post-procedure. Clients are given a sachet of healing cream to take home after the procedure to aid in the healing process.

Zensa healing cream is Vegan, steroid- and cruelty-free relief for skin conditions like eczema. It is formulated with medicinal-grade and all-natural ingredients. Calendula and grapefruit oil are proven to reduce irritation and speed up healing. Other ingredients include shea butter and cucumber extract to soothe and hydrate the skin, along with sunflower seed oil to brighten your tattoo and preserve its original color. Lastly, it will not impede ink settling. Zensa products are made in the USA.

 

Numbing Gel

I use Sustaine® Blue Gel during the Microblading process as it is designed to be used on open skin. It is an incredibly powerful during procedure numbing product to desensitize the area for completion of work, also made in the USA. 
This powerful topical anesthetic contains 4% lidocaine and 2% tetracaine for numbing, as well as .02% epinephrine to reduce the swelling, bruising and bleeding.  
Sustaine’s speed and effectiveness in the reduction of bruising and swelling makes it popular for sensitive work such eyebrows and the inflammation often associated with other sensitive areas.
