  • What is Scalp Micropigmentation
    Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the application of specialized pigments to the scalp to mimic the appearance of hair follicles. It's commonly used to create the illusion of a fuller head of hair, camouflage scars, or define hairlines, providing a natural and long-lasting solution for hair loss or thinning.
  • Is Scalp Micropigmentation cost effective?
    Compared to other hair loss treatments like hair transplants or ongoing medication, SMP can be a more cost-effective option in the long run. While the initial investment may seem significant, the semi-permanent nature of SMP means fewer follow-up appointments and maintenance costs over time.
  • How do I maintain SMP?
    Once the SMP procedure is complete, maintenance is minimal. Unlike hair transplants or topical solutions, there is no need for daily maintenance or special shampoos. The pigments used in SMP are long-lasting and fade resistant, providing a semi-permanent solution that can last for years with proper care.
  • How many sessions of SMP will I need?
    The number of sessions required for scalp micropigmentation (SMP) can vary depending on factors such as the extent of hair loss, desired hair density, and skin type. Typically, most individuals require two to three sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results. These sessions allow for adjustments in pigment color, density, and refinement of the hairline to ensure a natural appearance. However, some cases may require additional touch-up sessions for further enhancement or maintenance over time.
  • How quickly will SMP work for me?
    Unlike some hair loss treatments that can take months or even years to show noticeable results, SMP provides immediate results. You will leave the studio with a rejuvenated appearance and restored confidence on the same day as their procedure.
  • What does Scalp Micropigmentation look like?
    SMP replicates the look of natural hair follicles on the scalp, creating a realistic and natural-looking hairline. Unlike traditional hair transplant procedures or wigs, SMP does not rely on the growth of existing hair and provides immediate results.
  • Does Scalp Micropigmentation hurt?
    Unlike hair transplant surgeries which involve invasive procedures and lengthy recovery times, SMP is a non-invasive treatment. It involves the application of specialized pigments onto the scalp's epidermal layer, making it a relatively quick and painless procedure with minimal downtime.
  • What is the healing process like for microblading?
    After microblading, the treated area may appear darker and more intense for the first few days. It's normal to experience slight swelling and tenderness. Over the next 1 to 2 weeks, the color will soften and fade to a more natural shade as the skin heals.
  • What Are Eyelash Extensions?
    Eyelash Extensions are enhancements in which a synthetic lash is added to your natural eyelash. These typically come in different sizes, legnths, and weights so that Tiffany may find the correct fit for your eye.
  • Do Eyelash Extensions Damage My Natural Lashes?
    Often a common myth, lash extensions do not damage your natural lashes! I will never use anything that is too long, or too heavy for your natural eyelash. Additionally, I make sure that each individual eyelash is properly isolated, along with using the proper amount of glue.
  • Can I Wear Makeup With My Eyelash Extensions?
    I let most of my clients know that either you're a big makeup wearer, or you're a big lash wearer. It's not to say that you can't wear makeup with lashes. When you wear a lot of makeup with lashes, it can get caked in between them, making them difficult to clean and get makeup out. You can definitely still wear makeup, just know the heavier the makeup, the less retention there will be. I also let my clients know to not use any oil based makeups, or oil based makeup removers. This can also affect the way the adhesive bonds the extension to the natural eyelash.
  • Are Allergic Reactions Common?
    Allergic Reactions aren't common, but it's always best to ask for a Patch Test prior to your appointment.
  • What Is A Patch Test?
    A Patch Test is when the client comes to my studio at least 24- 48 hours prior to their appointment to "test out" the eyelash adhesive. This can be time consuming, but it's complementary. If your eyes are sensitive, it may be best to give it a try. I can even try a sensitive adhesive VS a regular adhesive.
  • How Long Will Eyelash Extensions Last?
    Eyelash extensions typically last 4 weeks. You have 80- 120 lashes per eye, and they cycle through shedding every 28 days or. I always tell clients "It would look silly if all of your lashes fell out at once." That's why it's best to get a lash fill every 2- 3 weeks. It could be considered a Full Set if there is more than 65% lash loss.
  • Why Do Eyelash Extensions Fall Out Faster Than Others?
    Some answers are simple. Hair goes through natural shedding seasons during the spring, and the fall. This can also be more common in places with season changes "IE: The Midwest." Other reasons for lash fall out can be - Getting them wet before 24 hours - Using oil based make ups/ oil based removers - Oily skin - Eye serums It's always best to contact me within 72 hours of your appointment should any exessive loss occur for a complentry consultation and retouch

  • What is Microblading?
    Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing technique used to enhance the appearance of eyebrows. It involves using a handheld tool with tiny needles to deposit pigment into the skin, creating natural-looking hair-like strokes.
  • How long does microblading last?
    Microblading typically lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on factors such as skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. Touch-up sessions may be required annually to maintain the desired shape and color.
  • How should I prepare for my appointment?
    Before your appointment, I highly encourage you to find pictures of eyebrows you want and/or like so I can get a better feel for the look you're going for. Eyebrows comes in many shapes, styles, and sizes. Do you like feathered or bold? Arched or Straight? As an artist, I will work with you to curate your dream brows. In the two weeks leading up to your appointment, I recommend avoiding blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol, and retinol creams. You especially should not drink alcohol the night before your microblading appointment. You should come to your appointment with a fresh face.
  • How long does the appointment last?
    The initial microblading session usually takes about 2 to 3 hours. This includes consultation, shaping, numbing, and the actual microblading process. Touch-up appointments, if needed, may take less time. I'm always happy to take as much time as needed to consult, and make you feel comfortable during your session.
  • How much does microblading cost?
    $350. This investment includes a free initial consultation, mapping of custom brows, and professional microblading by Tiffany Ruby. When booking an appointment, you will be asked for a downpayment, or deposit, or $50 that will go towards the total of $350. The $3500 also covers the initial microblading session ($300) and your 6-week touch up appointment ($50).

  • How will my microblading heal?
    After your microblading session, your brows will go through several stages of healing. Understanding these stages will help you know what to expect and how to care for your brows during each phase. I'm of course, always here to help. Immediate Post-Procedure Care: Your brows may appear darker and more defined immediately after the procedure, but don't panic—this is normal. I will apply a healing ointment to your brows and provide you with aftercare instructions. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure proper healing. Avoid touching your brows with dirty hands to prevent infection. Refrain from getting your brows wet for the first 24-48 hours after the procedure to allow the pigment to settle. Days 2-7: Initial Healing Stage: Your brows may start to itch and flake as they heal. This is a normal part of the process—resist the urge to scratch or pick at them. Apply the healing ointment provided by Tiffany regularly to keep your brows moisturized and promote healing. Avoid sun exposure, swimming, saunas, and excessive sweating during this stage, as they can interfere with the healing process and affect the pigment retention. Days 7-14: Touch-Up and Settling Stage: By this time, your brows will start to lighten and the flaking will subside. They may appear patchy—this is normal and will be addressed during your touch-up appointment. Attend your scheduled touch-up appointment to fill in any areas where the pigment did not retain well and to perfect the shape of your brows. Continue to avoid activities that can compromise the healing process and follow any additional instructions provided by your artist. Long-Term Care Tips: Once your brows have fully healed, it's important to maintain them properly to prolong the longevity of your microblading results. Avoid direct sun exposure and always wear sunscreen to prevent fading of the pigment. Use gentle, non-abrasive cleansers and avoid exfoliating products on your brow area. Avoid using retinol or chemical peels on your brows, as they can cause the pigment to fade faster. Schedule touch-up appointments as recommended by your artist to keep your brows looking fresh and defined.
