Those looking for a semi-permanent solution to thin, uneven eyebrows or sparse eyelashes can pay a visit to Cheryl Ticktin at Heaven & Earth Salon in Lafayette Hill. Ticktin has taken her professional talents to the next level by becoming certified on two new semi-permanent makeup services.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that is used to fill in gaps, reconstruct and define eyebrows to create a fuller and symmetrical eyebrow. Unlike other eyebrow tattoo techniques, microblading uses a tool that individually draws eyebrow hairs to simulate natural hair strokes.
For longer, thicker eye lashes, Ticktin offers Xtreme Lashes Eyelash Extensions. Each lash is individually applied to a single eyelash to create a natural appearance or dramatic look depending on your desired result.
Ticktin is dedicated esthetician with 6 years of experience. She is also a MAC certified makeup artist. “It’s exciting to learn the latest techniques and be able to offer services that provide a long-term solution to a client’s concern. In addition, the ability to help women feel better about themselves is a gift and a joy.”
Ticktin works at Heaven & Earth Salon in Lafayette Hill. She talked with owner, Lisa Kasmen, about getting trained in microblading and lash extensions in order to expand on her esthetician services like makeup application, waxing and facials she already offers. Kasmen says, “We strive to deliver the best products and desired services in the suburban Philadelphia area. Our decision to offer microblading and Xtreme Lashes to our valued customers is part of this commitment.”
Ticktin says microblading is great for those who want to fill in gaps in their eyebrows or darken thinning brows, but it is also good for those who have lost their eyebrows because of health problems or over-tweezing. It usually takes Ticktin about two hours to complete the process. There is no down-time, so the client can go about their normal day right after the process. The microblading tools Ticktin uses are disposable. She said she uses the tool once and disposes it. The new brows can last for up to two years, depending on the client’s skin type, aftercare and lifestyle. All results will vary. The initial appointment costs $600 and that includes the 4-week touch up. Maintaining the results are recommended between 6 months to a year and a half.
Xtreme Lashes® Eyelash Extensions are great for those who want fill in sparse lashes or want longer lashes for a special occasion. The lashes used are faux mink, specially designed to secure the extension to the natural lash. A full set of Xtreme Lashes are $275. Ticktin begins all appointments with a thorough consultation allowing you the opportunity to help design your customized lash look. She recommends routine touchups every two to four weeks to maintain the look.
