Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo process that uses a bladed, hand tool with tiny needles to deposit pigment into the upper region of the the dermis (it does not go as deep as a normal tattoo would, therefore, it is semi permanent). It creates very fine, crisp strokes that mimic real hair to create a fuller, natural looking brow.

  • Do not tan 2 weeks prior or be sunburned

  • Do not work out the day of your session.

  • Do not take any pain relievers (ibuprofen, aspirin, etc. as these will thin your blood).Do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours before the procedure.

  • No caffeine on the day of the procedure.

  • No waxing or tinting for 3 days before the procedure.

  • No botox 2 weeks before your session.

  • Note that you might be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

Microblading can take up to 2-2 ½ for the initial session. I like to take my time without rushing to make sure you are satisfied. Then a touch up session is required 4-6 weeks after the initial session and typically takes an 1-1 ½ (The touch up session solidifies the first session by filling in any spots that the skin may have not taken as well).

Microblading can last anywhere from 1-3 years depending on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure and how well you take care of your brows. Some client’s prefer getting a 6 month or annual touch up to keep their brows looking fresh and crisp, while others wait longer. Please note that client’s who choose a lighter pigment shade or ones who didn’t follow the aftercare instructions properly may need more frequent touch ups.

The following factors may cause your microblading to fade quicker:

  • Sun exposure (However, applying sunscreen to your microbladed brows will help to keep them crisp and fresh longer)

  • Iron deficiency

  • Exposure to salt water

  • Smoking

  • Exfoliants

I will numb you with a topical numbing cream for 20 minutes before beginning the procedure to help minimize any discomfort. Most clients feel little to no pain, but it depends on your pain tolerance. I also have a numbing gel for mid procedure that I can apply to keep you numb and as comfortable as possible, which helps a lot.

Your eyebrows may appear slightly darker and bolder than normal due to natural scabbing and healing for 7-10 days. Some slight redness/swelling and itch during the healing process post procedure is normal. Do not wash the procedure area or apply makeup for 24 hours and never touch the area with your fingers as they may have bacteria on them and cause an infection. After 24 hours, you may GENTLY wash your brows with a nonfragrant, mild soap and water. Aquaphor will be your new best friend. Use a clean cotton swab to gently roll on a VERY thin layer of Aquaphor 5 times daily for 7-10 days. Never drag or scrub while cleaning your brows or applying the Aquaphor. Avoid contact with the sun, sauna, Jacuzzis, pools, ocean, steam rooms, animals and gardening. Also, avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days. DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area as this can cause loss of pigment and scarring. I will go over all of this after your initial session and send you home with my aftercare instructions and a sample packet of Aquaphor. TRUST THE HEALING PROCESS! 🙂

Please note that microblading and powder ombre may seem a little darker than anticipated immediately after the first session, however, microblading will soften and lighten up to 40% after it has healed. Powder ombre will soften and lighten up to 60% after it has healed.

  • Always use sunscreen on your eyebrows if you’ll be in the sun for a good amount of time. Too much sun exposure will fade your microblading.

  • Minimize the use of retina/Tretinoin or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used regularly on your forehead or eye area. This will help to cause the permanent makeup to fade prematurely.

  • Limit the use of chemical and/or acid peels and exfoliants regularly on the forehead region as this can also start to fade your microblading.

Microblading can be done on all skin types, but it works best with dry, normal or combination skin. Very oily skin can make it more difficult for the pigmented strokes to heal and it may not be as long-lasting. It also may cause the strokes to slightly expand creating a softer, more diffused/powdery look. However, some clients with oily skin heal completely normal with great results.

Microshading works well with all skin types, especially oily skin.

Microblading and Microshading are for anyone who want to redefine their eyebrows to either add more fullness, arch or shape. If you’re sick of applying makeup to your brows every day, then this will help to deduct the time you spend getting ready in the morning. It’s honestly life changing.

NOTE: I CANNOT microblade/microshade anyone who is pregnant or nursing, under 18 years old, has glaucoma, skin diseases such as psoriasis, shingles or eczema on the treatment area, HIV/hepatitis, skin cancer, epilepsy, accutane in the past year, keloid disorder, hemophilia or heart conditions.

If you have diabetes or are going through chemotherapy then you need a doctor’s clearance in order for me to move forward with the process.

  • We go over the consultation to make sure your goals and expectations will be reached. I will take some before photos if you allow me to.

  • I wipe off any excess makeup or face oils on your brows and then apply a topical anesthetic numbing cream for 20 minutes.

  • During the numbing process, we will go over different shades of pigment to choose the best option for your desired look.

  • I then begin the brow mapping process with the proper tools used to measure and shape your brows to properly fit your facial structure. I will draw out the shape/outline with a brow pencil.

  • Once you confirm the shape, I will then dot the outline with a medical grade surgical marker, so I’ll be able to keep the outline throughout the whole procedure.

  • Next, I will start the microblading.

  • Please note that you will be numb for the procedure, however, I also have a numbing gel that I can apply mid procedure if you start to feel any discomfort. I want your experience to be as comfortable and painless as possible.

  • Finally, I finish microblading, take your after photos (if you allow me to do so, the transformations are always so much fun to see!), go over the aftercare and then you’re all done with a new fresh set of brows!

Yes, unless it is a keloid scar. I cannot microblade over keloids, but a standard scar should be fine. It can be a great solution to covering up scars.
