WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that uses a fine blade to place semi-permanent pigment into the surface of the skin. The effect very closely mimics the look and detail of actual brow hairs, creating a bolder, natural-looking brow.

WHAT ARE COMBINATION BROWS?

This is the best of both worlds – combining microblading and ombré shading together. Usually microblading is completed at the fronts of the brows to keep it looking more hair-like and fluffy and ombré shading is completed in the middle of the brows to the tails to keep the shape looking defined and more filled-in. Usually if your skin-type is more oily, this method is great for retention longevity.

IF I HAVE PREVIOUS COSMETIC TATTOOS, WILL I BE A VIABLE COVERUP CANDIDATE?

Please email or text clear pictures of the already tattoed area to make sure you are a viable candidate. DO NOT pay your deposit until we have reviewed your pictures beforehand.

WHAT CAN RESTRICT ME FROM PERMANENT MAKE UP SERVICES?

Being pregnant or having major medical conditions may restrict you from having permanent cosmetics done. Text or call if you have any questions.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

It depends on the individual’s skin, activities, etc. I recommend an annual touch up to retain the integrity of the tattoo.

DOES THE PROCESS HURT?

We will numb your area before we begin. Every person numbs differently. You may experience slight discomfort during the treatment, but most compare the sensation to plucking their eyebrows. We keep you as comfortable as possible.

HOW LONG WILL MY BROWS TAKE TO HEAL?

The initial healing period is 7-10 days. The complete healing process takes between 6-8 weeks.

WHY DID MY COLOR SEEM TO DISAPPEAR AFTER MY INITIAL APPOINTMENT?

During the initial healing process, your skin will begin to flake. Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the treated area. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared. Within 1-2 weeks, the color will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.

HOW LONG IS THE APPOINTMENT?

Please allow 2 hours for your first appointment and 1.5 hours for your follow up.

WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE AFTER PROCEDURE?

Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color and more sharply defined. This may last until they are fully healed. Have faith in the process and know they will soften in appearance.

WILL MY SKIN BE RED OR SWOLLEN?

Swelling and redness is minimal with most clients and will dissipate within 24-48 hours. In rare cases, bruising may occur.

WHY DO I NEED A FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT?

The complete healing process takes 4-8 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten and may heal uneven in color. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, we can make all needed adjustments during the second session.
