Q & A
What is Microblading?
Microblading is an advanced technique of cosmetic tattooing that is done by a process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin with a row of micro sterile, disposable needles that form a blade shape which will produce the appearance of hair where there isn't any, or add more to enhance and create fullness where hair already exists. This is with a manual hand tool, not a machine.
Does it hurt?
Topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Most clients say it does not hurt at all! However, please note you will be more sensitive on your menstrual cycle.
How much does it cost?
The initial microblading session is $450.00 and the 4-8 week touch up is included.
An additional touch up is required at least every 6-12 months which is $200.00
If you do not return within the 12 month period, it will be considered a full microblading session.
How long does it last?
The treatment will fade over time and a touch-up is required 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure and then every 6-8 months. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including sun exposure, chemical peels, how active the client is, and how fast each individual's cell turnover is. Please note that final results and time frame cannot be guaranteed as each skintype will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates.
Previously tattooed eyebrows may require one or two additional appointments and rarely achieve the same results to those who have no previous tattoo work because of the existing scar tissue and color under the skin, even if it isn't visible.
What will affect my new brows?
Sun exposure: The sun fades the pigment faster so sun block & hats should be your new best friends! (Besides your beautiful new brows)
The regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds.

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY PROCEDURE?
If possible please come to your appointment with your brows filled in the way you do them daily so we can get a general feel of how you'll be comfortable with your microblading result. If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 7 days after the procedure. Avoid any blood thinners for 24 hours prior to the appointment. This also includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Pre Workout and Alcohol.
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER?
You may feel your new brows look darker and thicker than expected for the first few days. Color will gradually soften in color and shrink slightly in size during the complete healing process (30 days).
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE?
Life happens. We get it. If you need to reschedule you can use your deposit for a future appointment, but we ask you give 48 hours notice when possible.
