Microblading

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that enhances the eyebrows by replicating the appearance of natural hair. Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, microblading deposits delicate fine lines of pigment just below the surface of the skin, mimicking the look of real hair.

 

How do I get started?


Everyone begins with a complimentary 30 minute consultation.

This is a time to discuss what you like and dislike about your

eyebrows and answer any questions or concerns you may have. If you

would like to give your brow artist an idea of your desired style, you

may wear makeup to your consultation.


If you and your service provider choose to move forward, a 50% deposit is required to schedule

your microblading appointments. We will schedule both your initial session

as well as your second appointment at the completion of your consultation. Your

remaining balance is due at the time of your first session.


At your first microblading appointment we will discuss and

thoroughly map out your brow shape. Then we will select pigment

color, complete the microblading procedure and provide home care

instructions.


Your second microblading appointment allows us to adjust shape,

pigment color, and correct any areas that did not retain pigment. This

appointment is crucial in achieving realistic dimension and texture in

the brow. The cost of your second appointment is included in the

payment made at your first appointment.

Deposits and Cancellations

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to schedule all

microblading appointments. The remaining balance is due upon

completion of your first appointment.


We require 24 hours notice to reschedule or cancel microblading

consultations and appointments. Failure to provide enough notice will

result in a forfeiture of the placed deposit and a new deposit will be

required to book your new appointments.


Consultations and Appointments

Due to the nature of microblading services, appointments cannot be

made online. Please call or visit us in person to schedule your

consultation.


Prior to your consultation, please review our Policies, Process, and

FAQs sections. Your initial consultation will help us to determine if

microblading is right for you, and which procedure to recommend.

After the consultation is completed, you will pay your deposit and

schedule your 2 microblading appointments.


Before your first microblading appointment, you will need to carefully

read and sign our Intake Forms and bring them completed to your

appointment. These forms will be emailed to you after your initial

consultation. Failure to bring your completed paperwork with you

may result in your appointment having to be rescheduled. This will be

considered a reschedule without proper notice. If you have any

questions about the paperwork, your brow artist will go over all forms

at your first appointment.


Please make every effort to arrive at least 5-10 minutes early to your

appointment. Arriving more than 15 minutes late may result in your

appointment having to be rescheduled. This will be considered a

reschedule without proper notice.

FAQ

 

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a form of Permanent Makeup where pigment is

deposited into the dermis layer of the skin in a stroking motion. Microblading will fade over the course of 6 months to 3 years. Microblading is sometimes referred to as eyebrow feathering, 3-D brows, and eyebrow embroidery.


It is a 2 part procedure that requires a second appointment within

6-10 weeks from the first appointment. The second appointment

cannot be done any earlier than 6 weeks, as your body needs to heal

completely.


Microblading is applied using a manual tattooing method, where a

handheld instrument containing a small row of very fine micro

needles deposits pigment into the dermis. This creates natural

looking, crisp hair strokes.


Is microblading permanent?

Microblading is considered “semi-permanent” because the pigments

are engineered to completely fade over time. This natural fading helps

create the illusion of dimension and texture seen in real eyebrows.


What is the difference between Microblading and a Tattoo?

Microblading differs from tattooing in that the pigments used in microblading are designed to be broken down by the body and fade over the course of 6 months to 3 years. Tattoos are permanent but will still discolor over time. This means that adjustments to your brows in the future will be more easily achieved with microblading rather than tattooing.


Does microblading hurt?

Microblading is designed to be as gentle of a procedure as possible;

however you may still feel some discomfort. During the course of the

procedure, your brow artist may apply 2 different topical numbing

agents to help reduce pain and minimizing redness and swelling.

While we strive to keep you comfortable, the less numbing agent used

during the procedure, the crisper your brows will heal.


The exact pain level experienced varies by the individual. Generally,

clients over 45 report overall less pain, while those who are

menstruating report heightened sensitivity. If you have any concerns,

please ask us during your consultation.


Am I a good candidate for microblading?

Most individuals are able to receive microblading treatments, however

there are a few reasons why microblading may not be right for you.


Microblading is ideal for:

clients with little to no eyebrow hair.
clients with missing/patchy eyebrow hairs.
disguising scars
defining the perfect brow shape.
thickening thin brows.
creating facial symmetry.

You are not eligible for microblading at this time if you:

have skin diseases (psoriasis, eczema, rosacea) around the eyebrow area.
have received facial botox treatments within the last 28 days.
are currently prescribed Accutane, Isotrentinoin, or other Retinoids. You will be eligible for microblading after 6 months from your last dosage.
have certain auto-immune disorders.
are currently being treated for cancer or undergoing chemotherapy. You are eligible to receive microblading with a doctor’s note after 6 months remission.
cannot follow our Aftercare Instructions for four weeks immediately following your procedure.

If you have any questions about this list, please ask during your

consultation!


How is the eyebrow shape and color determined?

Your final brows will be a perfect combination of your desired look,

your brow artist’s precise measurements, and the natural flow of your

eyebrows. Your brow artist will thoroughly map the design of your

brows based on the position of your eyes, nose, and brow bone.

Pigment color is chosen to compliment the skin tone and enhance

existing hair color.


How much will my procedure cost?

Please refer to our Pricing section for a detailed list of services and pricing. If you have any questions regarding our microblading packages, please schedule a free consultation with our brow artist to discuss your needs.


How long do microblading results last?

After the second appointment, microblading results can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years. If you would like to keep your brows looking their best we recommend annual or bi-annual touch up appointments to maintain a crisp, fresh look.


There are a number of factors that can impact pigment retention such

as: aftercare, age, skin type, sun/UV exposure, lifestyle, and overall

health.


It should also be noted that while microblading pigments are intended to be completely broken down by the body over time, whenever pigment is inserted into the dermis there comes the possibility of lasting much longer.


What is to be expected after my microblading procedure?

Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising, and dry skin is

expected shortly following the procedure. Applying homecare

ointment as directed helps moisturize the skin, lessening scabbing and

tightness.


The Healing Process:

Immediately after: Eyebrow color is sharp and dark. Pigment is still present in the epidermis and has not yet settled completely into the dermis.
Days 2-4: Pigment color will begin to soften. You may notice excess pigment on the cotton swabs as it naturally sloughs off with your dead skin cells. Microblading is designed as a 2 appointment process to allow this time for fading to recreate the look of natural eyebrow hair.
Days 5-7: Once the skin begins to heal, you may experience dry, flakey skin around the brows. This is superficial color and dead skin from the epidermal layer being naturally removed.
Days 8-10: As the skin continues to heal, your brows will scab. It will look like your brows are gone- they are not. This is a natural, normal part of the healing process.
Days 14-28: Pigment will resurface and may appear light, with patchy, uneven strokes. It is normal for pigment to fade up to 40-50% after the first appointment. This is why 2 appointments are required to achieve full results. After your second appointment your brows can last from 6 months to 3 years.

The healing process takes about 2 weeks to visually heal, and 4 weeks

to heal beneath the skin’s surface.


How do I know which service to book?

Your brow artist will help you determine the best option for you based

on your wants and needs.


Generally, Feathered Brows are the best choice for clients with light, or sparse brow hairs wanting to maintain a very natural look. This technique utilizes classic microblading hair strokes only.


Powdered Brows are perfect for guests who always wear makeup. This Microshading technique uses a tapping motion to deposit the pigment into the dermis rather than the stroking motion used in classic Microblading. Results from this technique can range from a softer, more natural ombre brow, to a bold, full-powder brow. Powdered Brows are also ideal for guests who have experienced poor retention with previous permanent makeup treatments, or guests wishing to cover existing tattoos or permanent makeup.


Grafted Brows are a great option for clients with missing or patchy brow hair, or complete hair loss. With a combination of microblading and microshading techniques, Grafted Brows offer more fullness and density than Feathered brows while still creating a very natural look.


Is microblading safe?

We adhere to the strictest sanitation and sterilization requirements. Your brow artist is certified in proper blood borne pathogen procedures, hygienic practices, and sterilization regulations. All blades and tools used for your service are sterile, individually wrapped, single use items and are properly disposed of after your appointment. Your brow artist will show you all implements to be used on you in their sealed, sterile packaging at the beginning of each of your microblading appointments. Rest assured, your safety and comfort is our utmost concern.


What if I am allergic?

If there is a concern about pigment color matching or potential skin reaction, a patch test can be done for an $85 fee.


Is it Vegan-friendly?

Yes. The pigments used are organic, all natural, vegan pigments.

Before Your Appointment

3-4 weeks before microblading: abstain from Chemical Peels,

Dermabrasion, Botox Injections, or any other intense treatments on

the face and brow area.


3 days before microblading: avoid eyebrow waxing, tanning, and

sunbathing. If you tint your eyebrows, we recommend tinting them

now, as you will not be able to wet your eyebrows for 10 days after

your microblading appointment.


1 day before microblading: abstain from Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E,

Ibuprofen, coffee, alcohol, and energy drinks. These substances can

thin the blood, making pigment retention difficult. We recommend

taking care of any hair needs (cut, color, etc.) at this time.


Please arrive to all microblading appointments with no makeup

(wearing your usual brow makeup to your Consultation is

encouraged).

During Your Appointment

The first 5 steps of the appointment will take roughly an hour and a

half, while the actual microblading portion is only about 45 minutes.

The final 30 minutes will be used allowing the pigment to penetrate

into the skin and to review aftercare instructions. Secondary and

Touch Up appointments are approximately 2 hours and follow the

same general outline.


We will go over all paperwork and answer any questions.
We will discuss the microblading procedure, desired pigment color, and brow shape.
An initial numbing agent is applied. This takes about 15 minutes to take full affect.
Your brow artist will custom-blend your pigment to compliment your skin tone, enhance existing hair color, and achieve your brow goals.
Your brow artist will map out your eyebrow shape based on your desired look and your facial contours. The brow shape is reviewed by you, and adjustments can be made until an agreement on shape has been reached. Once the microblading process has begun, no further adjustments can be made until your next microblading appointment.
Pigment will be applied with a manual tool using specialized microblading techniques.
Additional numbing agent may be applied at this time and then a second pass of microblading is done.
A pigment “mask” is applied to the brows and will sit for 20 minutes to achieve full pigment penetration and help to ensure longevity.
Your brow artist will clean the area and apply a post treatment solution to protect your fresh brows.
We will go over aftercare and send you home with aftercare ointment and instructions.

After Your Appointment

Beginning the day following your microblading procedure, apply the

given ointment on your eyebrows twice a day with a cotton swab

using non-aggressive movements for 10-15 days unless otherwise

instructed by your brow artist. Always wash your hands before caring

for your brows.


Day of microblading: Do not use any product, including makeup, on

eyebrows and do not allow eyebrows to get wet.


Days 2-5: Do not allow eyebrows to get wet. Apply a light layer of

ointment once in the morning and once in the evening, do not wash

off. An additional layer of ointment should be applied immediately

before showering/bathing. Avoid direct contact with water, sweat,

steam, or any other liquids on the brow area for 5-10 days. Even a

small amount of water can make the microblading wounds swell,

causing scabs to form. Keeping your brows completely dry until

scabbing has stopped is imperative for proper healing. Avoid

using any ointments or creams other than what is provided by your

brow artist. Avoid wearing makeup on the brow area.


Days 6-15: As long as scabbing is still present, continue to keep your

brows dry until the scabs fall off naturally. Do not pick at or peel the

scabs as this may affect pigment retention. When scabs are no longer

present, you can allow water to get on your brows and may resume

normal physical activity. Twice daily, carefully clean your eyebrows

with damp gauze and antibacterial soap, using non-aggressive

motions, then apply a thin layer of ointment. Continue to avoid harsh

cleansers, as well as makeup on and around the brow area.


Day 16: You can begin touching the eyebrow area and sleeping on your

brows. You can also resume wearing makeup on and around the brow

area.


4 weeks: you can resume Facial Treatments, Chemical Peels, Dermabrasion, Botox and other intense treatments. You can resume sunbathing and tanning, though we do recommend wearing sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat if you will be in the sun for a prolonged period of time. Excessive sun exposure can lead to premature fading of your brows. You can resume waxing, threading, or any other depilation/epilation around the eyebrow area.


6-10 weeks: your brows are completely healed and you are ready for

your second appointment.


Aftercare is the biggest factor in achieving beautiful, long lasting results. The success of your healing is in your hands.
