Tired of filling in your brows? We have the solution for you. We will custom match and blend pigments to perfectly match your natural brow color.
Ombre Brows give a more defined and bolder brow than Microblading. This choice of brow is recommended for those who wear makeup daily (hence it mimics a pencil filled in brow).
Lip Lightening is a procedure that is provided to those who wish to correct unwanted darkness of the lips. Great service for smokers.

I am so happy with my eyebrows. Kendreeka was very professional and kind. She took the time to make sure that I was comfortable and understood the process and what to expect. The actual procedure did not take long and was not painful. I look forward to working with her more. Oh, and my brows look so natural! I am still in the healing process but will update you soon.
Kendreeka is AMAZING! She’s so attention to detail and quite gentle during the service! She always has plenty of after care information and keeps you informed during the whole process. She’s done tight lining on my eyes and I just did my lips today. What are you waiting for, CALL HER NOW!!!!
Great experience. I really recommend coming here. She made sure to keep checking that I was satisfied with the shape and look as she was doing my eyebrows. My brows are healed now and while I haven’t made my follow up yet, they still look good even without the touch up. She made them look very natural and I’m glad I went here. For those who may have trouble finding the salon with google maps; it is located in the building of the picture attached.
Great place to shoot. Very responsive management (shout out to Justin), friendly knowledgeable & helpful staff (shout out to Erik and Rob), and three bays with 11 shooting lanes each (33 total!). All indoor, 25 yard distances. They will let you shoot pistol, rifle and shotgun (some restrictions apply!). The nicest indoor shooting range I’ve had the pleasure of shooting at. They even have an indoor firearms shooting simulator.
KenDreeka is Amazing at what she does! She takes Such Pride in her work! KenDreeka makes Absolute Sure that her Customer is Comfortable and Content At All Times. Her Work is Second to None! Thank You KenDreeka for Giving Me the Most Awesome Brows That I Could have Ever Dreamed Possible! You Truly Are My Brow Savior! 💖
Great experience with an exceptionally skilled artist. I took my husband along & he was even “WOWED” by her precision & knowledge which she took the time to include him in. Above all we are very pleased with the service & excited to go back for the follow up & see the final result. Wish I had done it sooner!

Frequently Asked Questions
Microblading has become very popular over the years but many do not consider the downside of receiving this service. We at Facial Xpressions encourage our clients to consider Nano Brows or Hybrid Nano Brows when wanting the natural hairstroke look. Microblading creates small cuts in the skin using a handheld tool. This can often lead to scarring and irreversible skin damage if performed incorrectly. Nano Brows is a better option being that it is more gentle in the skin. There is also little to no bleeding with this procedure (unlike Microblading) and the healing phases of Nano Brows are less intense than Microblading. Nano and Hybrid Nano can also be performed on any skin type, unlike Microblading that is not recommended for oily, matures or textured skin. Nano Brows also has the potential to last longer and look better over time compared to Microblading.
Lip Lightening is a specialized technique that uses advanced color theory in efforts to return the lips back to their natural state. At, Facial Xpressions, we include 2 sessions that are 8-10 weeks apart. Great option for smokers or those who wish to brighten up their smile.
Healing for Permanent Makeup procedures varies from client to client.
For eyebrows, expect brows to be slightly darker immediately after procedure and they will go through several phases during a 1-2 week timeframe. Most important, remember to not scheudule your eyebrpw appointment around special events or occasions where you may not be comfortable with the healing and peeling phases. Massive pealing does not take place, just slight scabbing and flaking. Keeping them moisterized with Aquaphor is vital.
For all Lip procedures, keeping them moisturized is key. For lip lightening and Lip Blushing, your lips will appear darker slightly after procedure and during healing process and will lighten over a 2-3 week timeframe. Please be patient to see final results.
