What is microblading?

Microblading is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup that consists of hair-like strokes typically lasting 1-3 years depending on skin type and skincare routine.  The procedure is done by using a nonmotorized hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their eyebrows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color. Skin tone will also be taken into consideration. This technique is best for those with normal to dry skin.

What is a powdered/machine brow?

Powder brows are done with a machine to create a soft, penciled in brow look. This technique can be done on any skin type. If you are someone that likes a makeup look, this method is ideal. Powder brows generally tend to last longer than microblading, making it perfect for someone that doesn't want to keep up with the maintenance of microblading.

What is a combination brow?

Combination brows, or hybrid brows, is a mixture of microblading and powder brows. This is best for those that want the natural look of microblading, but want to build a bit more density to the brows. If you love the look of microblading but it's just a little too natural for your day-to-day makeup look, this is the best technique for you.


How long does the process take?

For the first brow session, the entire procedure should take about 3 hours. During this session, we will shape and style the client’s brows with their bone structure in mind. After a client approves of the shape, we then decide on pigment color selection.  Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure.

The client should then follow up with a second visit in 6-8 weeks after the initial appointment. This session takes about 1.5-2 hours.

How long until it heals?

Immediately after the procedure, the color will look dark and the skin around the brows might be slightly red. In the coming days, the eyebrows will become darker and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs because it might damage the skin and the outcome of the treated area. After about 14 days, you'll notice the color is very light and might feel like the brows have completely disappeared! This is common and is due to the the tissue healing from the inside out, though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.The eyebrows will lighten by up to 40% and will take about 6-8 weeks to completely heal. 

Do I need a touch-up session?

Yes! This is the time to perfect the brows. A touch up session after 6-8 weeks is necessary because everyone heals differently and the outcome will vary. Mature skin may take 8-10 weeks to completely heal. Certain areas may not pick up the pigment during first session and will need to be refilled. During this session we can also adjust the pigment color, brow thickness, and add more strokes.  

Does it hurt?

The pain level for the procedure is considered minimal. We begin with a topical cream, and then once our first pass is complete, we then apply a second anesthetic to the broken skin. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic, so the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches, to not feeling anything. 

After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. You can take Tylenol but not Aspirin or Ibuprofen.

How long will it last?

Since permanent makeup pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade over time. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on age and skin type. Powder brows can last 1-4 years. Skincare routine and tanning also affect retention. Using products with AHA or Glycolic Acid will fade faster, for your skin will resurface faster. Each individual's color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested yearly. Clients can let the area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain, and if it completely fades, pigment molecules may still remain under the skin.

What are the pre and post care procedures?

In order to achieve the best results, follow the pre and post care instructions...

Prior to your procedure, clients are advised:

  • Avoid Aspirin/Ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. If you are on prescribed blood thinners please consult with your doctor before discontinuing use.

  • No caffeine/alcohol or working out 24 hours before the procedure.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior to the procedure.

  • No botox at least one month before the procedure.

  • No waxing or threading 7 days prior to the procedure.

  • Feel free to come in with brow makeup on so we can see your every day look you prefer.  We will then work together to create the perfect brows! 

After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions:

  • Clean your brows immediately when you get home and then again 2 hours later. Clean them periodically throughout the day when you notice lympathic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) building up. To clean, use an antibacterial soap such as Dial Gold soap with a clean q tip or tissue. Gently wipe in the direction of the hair growth.

  • Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days. 

  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 14 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, use rag and stay away from brow area.      

  • Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. It is an open wound and using makeup may cause infections or affect the outcome of your brows.    

  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not scratch or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. 

  • Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.     

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.

Risks and Complications?

We take precautions for a safe session, starting with our environment. We sanitize everything and use disposable blades. Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, risks and complications are reduced. Though allergic reactions to the pigments are rare, it's possible for certain people. We suggest a pigment patch test for those with high skin sensitivities or are sensitive to:

  • Topical makeup products

  • Gold, silver and nickel

  • Hair dyes

Patch tests should be performed 5-7 days prior. 

What if I don't like it?

As with all cosmetic procedures, clients should not make their choices lightly.  We recommend clients do their research and compare different artists' portfolios when making their decisions. Never be afraid to ask your artist questions or concerns you may have. We do our best to shape and style the eyebrows to the client's satisfaction prior to the procedure, but please understand our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session as well as pigment discoloration/correction. 

You do eyelash extensions?

Yep! Eyelash Extensions are singular strands of synthetic fibers made to simulate natural eyelashes.The single strands are then made into a fan and applied to each eyelash. With proper application, lash extensions look and feel natural. Expect them to last 2-3 weeks. Regular maintenance and fills are needed every 2-3 weeks to maintain fullness. Minimize exposure to water within the first 24 hours after your appointment. You might notice more lash fallout on the side of the pillow you sleep on. Avoid hot steams and saunas to minimize fallout. 

What's your cancellation policy?

Clients are able to cancel or reschedule appointments at any time with a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to the appointment time, otherwise a fee will be charged. To book an appointment, you must provide a valid credit card in your name. If you are booking a brow service online, a $50 booking fee will be taken at the time of booking.  All phone reservations require a $50 booking fee for lashes AND brows. This will be deducted from your service. To cancel or reschedule, please call us. Failure to do so will result in a $50 fee for volume full sets and extended fills, and a $30 fee for volume fills.

We do our best to make sure all of our appointments run on time and provide a grace period of 15 minutes for each appointment. If you expect to be late by more than 15 minutes, we must reschedule and another booking fee will be required. Confirmation of cancellation will be done by email or phone. We reserve the right to refuse service to any client who cancels or reschedules appointments three times in a row.
