  • What is Microblading?
    Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
  • How long is a session?
    For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 1-2 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure. The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Microblading session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1.5-2 hours to complete.
  • How long does it take to heal?
    The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
  • Is the touch up session necessary?
    Yes! A touch up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!
  • Is it painful?
    The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and also reapplied during the procedure. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. Clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.
  • What are the pre and post care procedures?
    In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the pre and post care instructions. Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following: Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone. No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior. Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so our technician can see your every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows! After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions: Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away the old AQUAPHOR and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brows. Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days. Do not over apply aquaphor. Do not immerse brow area in water for 14 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it. Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections. Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours. Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days. No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.

  • Risks and Complications?
    We take all proper precautions for a safe session by using sterilized equipment, new needles and in a sanitized environment. Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, there should be minimal risks or complications . Although allergic reactions to the pigments are rare, it could be possible for certain individuals. We suggest a pigment patch test for individuals who have high skin sensitivities or are sensitive to: Topical makeup products Gold, silver and nickel Hair dyes Patch tests should be performed 5-7 days prior.
  • What if I do not like it?
    As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly. We always recommend clients do their research, understand the procedure and compare different artists' work and portfolio when making their decisions. Our brow technicians will do their utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Pigment discoloration and color correction can also be fixed during the the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done.
  • What are your cancellation or missed appointment policies?
    We reserve your appointments especially for you, therefore, we respectfully request at least one week notice for cancellations or rescheduling.
  • What is the difference between Microblading and powder brows?
    Microblading uses a hand tool to create realistic looking hair strokes in the browline. Powdered brows help clients achieve more of a powdered or ombre look instead of individual hair strokes. Powdered brows have a soft makeup look and work great for clients with oily or mature skin.
  • What are combo brows?
    Combo brows is a combination of two forms of semi-permanent techniques: microblading and powder brows (shading). Microblading hair-strokes are placed with a manual tool around the border of the brow to give the brow a natural look.
  • Which procedure takes longer to heal
    Healing time and process is also quite similar. They both take 4-6 weeks to completety heal. Your brows will be dark and swollen after the procedure. Then you need to follow strict aftercare rules for two weeks. Your brows will change color and scabbing is usually involved after both treatments. Unlike microblading scabs that fall off in patches, powder brows scab in one big (or a few big) pieces.
  • Which procedure lasts longer
    The life expectancy of microblading treatment and its variations is 1-3 years. It is said that powder brows last a little bit longer than microblading. Average microblading lasts around 2 years, while powder brows can last three, and even up to four years. The longevity of both microblading and powder brows depends on your skin type, as well as your lifestyle and everyday routine. If you do some sport, sweat a lot and are exposed to the sun very often, your microblading/powder brow will fade faster. You can prolong both brow’s effects by booking regular touch ups.
  • What is saline removal?
    The saline removal solution is implanted using a tattoo machine or hand tool, the salt dries out the skin it's implanted into. Treated skin forms a dried-out scab during healing, and during treatments you'll see the scab contains some of the tattoo pigment. WHAT TO EXPECT. Saline lightening can take 6-8 weeks to fully heal. The area may stay pink for several weeks. During this time, you will scab. You can be an ideal candidate to undergo the procedure if you only have small tattoos (no greater than a deck of cards) or permanent makeup/ microblading ( eyeliner, eyebrows, lip liners, and so forth). Or if you don't have any health condition or severe skin problem that may prolong the healing proces
