The health and welfare of our patients is of our utmost concern.

In accordance with the recommendations of the CDC and Governor Sisolak’s recommendation to the state of Nevada, we have closed our medical spa for any procedures and treatments.

We are seeing post op patients, and any of our patients that need medical care.

Although we will not be doing any medical Spa Treatments, we would love to book your future appointments and look forward to seeing you hopefully after April 20th.

If anything changes with the date of us opening up to patients, we will post it here.

We are still taking phone calls, and can schedule consults and appointments.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Dr. James and Tracy Murphy and the staff at Murphy Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa.

Semi-Permanent to Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing

Cosmetic Tattooing or Micro-Blading/Shading

Meet Micro-Shading
Micro-shading, often referred to as the “Powder shading brow effect” gives the brow a gradient appearance with small pin point dots. Powder shading is a gentler version of micro-blading, this semi-permanent technique gives brows a fuller look or fills in thin, sparse, or over plucked brows with small dots rather than natural hair strokes. If you have sensitive or oily skin, powder shading brows are the perfect brow option for you as it is safer for sensitive or oily skin but can be done on any skin type. On average this semi-permanent makeup technique lasts 2-3 years, our cosmetic tattoo artist recommends yearly touch ups to keep them looking fresh. 

If you like the hair stroke look with shading you can have a micro-blading/powder shading combo. Usually the hair strokes go along the edges where they are most visible and shading is added to the body of the brow giving it a full look that retains a beautiful shape every day. This can be light shading if don’t like the full on makeup look, or darker shading if you like bold brows. Every brow can be customized to each individual preference. On average this semi-permanent makeup technique lasts 1-3 years, our cosmetic tattoo artist recommends yearly touch ups to keep them looking fresh.

Ultimately, these techniques look amazing no matter your skin type.  It’s just a matter of personal preference. If you are unsure on what technique is best for you, our cosmetic tattoo artist will gladly see you for a consultation to discuss your best option.
