MICROBLADING is the process of manually implanting pigment into the skin by creating hand-drawn, thin hair-like strokes that blend seamlessly with your existing brow hairs. The results yield a naturally full, more defined and more symmetrical pair of eyebrows. Healed results will vary depending on your skin type and condition and lifestyle lasting UP TO FIVE years or longer.​Microblading is a two step process, which includes your initial appointment and one complimentary touchup within 6-12 weeks after your first appointment for maximum healed results.Microblading is wonderful option for those who is simply are unhappy with their eyebrows or perhaps over-plucked back in the day. For those who have suffered from hair loss due to a medical conditions or aging, can greatly benefit from microblading.

What to Expect


  • Please discontinue the use of following topical products for a minimum of SEVEN days prior to your appointment: AHA’s, aka Alpha Hydroxy Acids + Retinoids of any kind. This includes Retin-A, Tazorac, Tretinoin, Retinol and so on. These products can cause the pigments to fade prematurely and alter the color as well as may cause the skin to be more prone to bleeding resulting in poorly healed results.

  • If you are on blood thinners of any kind; Coumadin, Aspirin, etc.  A note from you doctor releasing you for both the procedure(s) and allowing you to go off your medication a minimum of THREE days prior to your first appointment is required. If you are a person with Diabetes, a note from your doctor is required releasing you for the procedure(s).

  • No Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ibuprofen/ Advil, Fish Oil or Alcohol intake within THREE days of your first appointment. These may cause your skin to bleed more thus pushing the pigment out and may result in poor healed results.

  • If you are under treatment for any form of cancer, you must wait until your treatment is complete. You are able to receive permanent makeup THREE months after you have been cleared by your physician. Please bring a medical clearance note to your first appointment. It is recommended to get any permanent makeup procedure(s) before you start any cancer treatment(s).

  • No caffeine within THREE hours of your appointment. Caffeine can cause more bleeding and healed results may be poor.

  • Please note that women who are in or near their menstrual cycle tend to bleed more than those who are not. You may also be more sensitive to pain.

  • If you have a sunburn or have been in a tanning bed within SEVEN days the procedure cannot be performed.

  • No waxing or tinting the treated area for at least FIVE days before your procedure.

  • For those that have recently undergone facial surgery, you must bring a letter of medical clearance from your surgeon to your appointment. You must be healed for SIX months before receiving permeant makeup.


  • Careful aftercare is essential to how your brows heal producing a beautiful lasting result.

  • It is important to keep the treated area clean and moist with the provided aftercare only. Apply aftercare every 3-4 hours for 10 days.

  • Expect slight swelling, redness and itching for the first few days. Pigment will appear darker for the first 5-7 days, and then start to lighten. It is a process, this is normal. Patience is key. After your skin has completely healed, about 4-8 weeks, any areas of concern can be addressed during the touchup appointment.

  • After you are completely healed you may resume your natural skincare and makeup routine.

  • Use sunblock after the area has healed to protect from fading when enjoying direct sun exposure.

  • Mild redness and tenderness (will usually subside within a few hours to a day or two)

  • Minor to moderate swelling. Sometimes none at all.

  • Light scabbing, skin peeling, even light bruising, dry tightness feeling is all normal.

  • Feeling itchy in the treated area. As the skin heals it may feel itchy. Do not scratch, tap the skin gently with clean fingertips to satisfy that itch.

  • Color changes or light/ color loss/ gaps. As the area heals the color will lighten and even seem to disappear. Once your skin has completely healed, the pigment will reveal itself again as it migrates back toward the skin’s surface. Any areas that appear too light or missing pigment can be enhanced during the touchup appointment, hence why it is so necessary.

  • Too dark or uneven appearance. After about SEVEN days the darkness will fade and once the swelling goes down the unevenness will disappear.

  • Color or pigment on the Q-tip when applying ointment during the home care. You might notice some pigment on your pillowcase the next morning or o the Q-tip after applying ointment for the first few days or so.

  • The procedure area must be completely healed before we can address any concerns.

Things to Consider

  • The color you see now is not the color you will end up with. The color and even the shape may look different after the skin has completely healed. It is normal to have color/pigment loss, as well as expect the color to be “warm” or orangey/reddish at first. This ensures that your healed results will stay true to color for years to come.

  • During the healing period it is normal to lose anywhere from 10% up to even 60% of your color. The amount of retention versus loss depends on your skin type and condition, overall health, medications, desired goals, pigment choice, lifestyle and before and aftercare, and how well your skin retains the pigment.

  • Permanent makeup is considered to be a permanent change in the skins tissue. There is no true way of knowing how to predict how long or how well your skin will hold onto the pigment.

  • Fading is normal. Filling in here and there with makeup is OK. The best part is that the shape is already created for you to follow!

  • Remember, microblading is not a solid filled in look. The expectation is to see the skin through the strokes. This gives a much more natural appearance. As your skin heals, the diameter of the strokes softens and widens. So, if the strokes are too close they may begin to touch each other (creating a blurring appearance) and lose that hair-like appearance of individual strokes. This can also happen with ongoing frequent touchups, oily skin types and other factors. More strokes can always be added during your touchup appointment.

  • Immediately after your permanent makeup procedure, there is pigment in the skin and outside the skin, which is what makes the color look vibrant and bright. As the skin heals it covers the pigment with new skin cells creating a so called “filter” which then makes the healed results appear softer (less vibrant) in color and tone. Once the skin has completely healed, after about 6-12 weeks or so, gently exfoliating your skin in the treated area once to twice a week. Moisturizing the treated area daily will also help to keep your permanent makeup looking fresh for years to come.
