Microblading is a manual method used to deposit small amounts of pigment in the superficial layer of the skin. It is considered to be a semi-permanent tattoo.
1-3 years depending on lifestyle, age, skin type and sun exposure.
Touch ups are recommended every six months to a year to keep the color fresh and the strokes crisp.
A topical anesthetic is used to numb the area before and during the service. Most are surprised on how little they feel but others say there is some discomfort associated with the procedure.
If you use the following; Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic acid, Retin-A’s, any bleaching or acne medication. Stop using two weeks before procedure. Botox should be done 6 weeks prior if used around or near the forehead. Leaving your eyebrows alone for a week (no tweezing, waxing or otherwise removing the hair) is preferred.
Other than make sure your skin is maintained clean and moist with Vaseline or Aquaphor, not much. You can still wash your hair and face right away. First 24 hours no sweating or otherwise getting the area wet. First 72 hours no swimming. First 10 days no tanning or prolonged sun exposure. NEVER pick, peel or scratch the tattoo. Once they’re healed up, you treat them as your own. An aftercare sheet will be given to you after the treatment is complete.
The procedure takes roughly about two hours, sometimes more sometimes less. Please allow a solid two and a half hour window for your appointment. We likely won’t need that much time, but this isn’t something we want to rush.
No. There’s no downtime associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
Healing time varies from individual to individual. Usually, it takes about a week to ten days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off. Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin. 4-8 weeks should pass before we consider the process complete and touchups are allowed.
Microblading is a two step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch up four to eight weeks after. First a topical anesthetic will be applied to ensure comfort. Once you’re numb, we take your before photo, shape your eyebrows and decide on the color. After you love the shape and color we begin. The actual tattooing only takes 30-45 minutes.
During healing, it’s normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up in place. The process is considered to be complete 4 weeks after the first touch up.

We choose a shape and style together. At the beginning of the procedure we will draw in a suggested shape for your new brows and then we work together to perfect this to your preference. Measurements are taken to check symmetry and placement.
No you cannot have this treatment done if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Your brows may be a little swollen, red and sometimes blanched (white). This is all very normal. They will be considerably darker for the first week before they begin to fade out to a softer color.
Your body’s skin changes over time and so will any permanent makeup coloration implanted in to the skins layers. However, this natural fading process takes years and touch ups are easily done as your colors fade over time.
NO! Semi-Permanent makeup is done using a cosmetic tattooing process and our eyebrow pigmentation unique artistry guarantees soft, natural looking eyebrows. When we implant semi-permanent makeup pigment in the skin, it appears more natural looking than even topically applied cosmetics.
Although the procedure is considered semi-permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing color and shape to some extent. Colors will appear much darker immediately following the procedure but will often soften and lighten during the healing process. The healing time is different for each individual and remember it takes time to adjust to a new look!
During the procedure there may be some minor bleeding. This will depend on the client. If a person is taking blood thinners on a daily basis, then some slight bleeding may occur. Bruising is rare but if a person is on blood thinners, then bruising could occur. There is usually some tenderness for a few days. The color is much darker than you may expect for the first six to ten days.
