For successful Microblading results it is important that you read all the information on this page.
It's simple! We prefer that you don't have newly plucked or waxed brows when coming in, so that we can see where your natural brows grow, that way we can shape your brows from scratch. So, the fuller your brows are at your microblading appointment, the better, as we'll have more to work with.
Here are some things to remember not to do:
- Do not consume alcohol or caffeine 24 hours prior to your microblading procedure (these are natural blood thinners and will make you bleed excessively during the procedure)
- Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before your procedure - Tylenol is OK.
- Do not use Botox in the forehead and eye area 3 weeks before your microblading procedure
- Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E supplements 1 week prior (natural blood thinners)
- Do not tint, thread, tweeze or wax your eyebrows 4 days before the procedure (we prefer if you have not cleaned them up)
- Do not work out the day of the procedure
- Do not tan 2 weeks prior
- Do not have any type of facial/peel or electrolysis 1 week prior to treatment
- Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products 2 weeks prior to treatment
- Avoid Nutritional Shakes, "Hair, Skin, Nail" supplements 48 hours prior to procedure
- Discontinue prescription Retin-A products 3 weeks prior to your procedure - always avoid application onto the brow area
- Avoid use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure
- Avoid Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion or other invasive facials 3 weeks prior to procedure
- Please note; Your skin will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
Please take in account that this procedure will take about 2 1/5 hours depending on your brows and their existing condition. Due to the nature of this service we kindly ask that you arrive unaccompanied to your scheduled appointment. Please leave friends, boyfriends/husbands, children and pets at home.
What's the difference between Microblading and regular tattooing?
First, traditional body tattooing use electric tools and the needle will penetrate both the first and second layer of your skin (epidermis and dermis) when depositing ink. A Microblading procedures involves pigments deposited by a manual hand tool, drawing very precise and fine lines, and only penetrating the first layer of your skin (epidermis). Therefore, Microblading results are much more subtle than traditional tattooing, giving you a natural looking enhancement while also creating depth through a 3D illusion.
Is Microblading permanent?
Microblading is a semi-permanent method. Meaning, the results will last anywhere between 10-18 months depending on how well you take care of your news brows during the healing period, and also depending on your skin type and how well it retains the pigment. When the Microblading effect starts to fade (very slow and gradual process) you can always come back for an additional touch up.
Does it hurt?
Everyone's pain tolerance is different. We usually tell our clients that the actual ink deposit feels like a paper cut - some feel it and some aren't much bothered. You can rest assured however that we do have topical anesthetics/numbing creams that we apply before the procedure for your comfort. You also have the option of taking two over the counter Tylenol tablets prior to arriving for your appointment to reduce discomfort.
Can anyone have Microblading done?
Yes! There are no requirements for your brows to look in a specific way before the treatment - we are here to help make them look perfect regardless of how sparse or pale they are! Some high risk patients who have severe and chronic medical issues (cancer, autoimmune disorders etc.) are deferred from having this procedure done (please contact us directly if you have specific health concerns or medical conditions). Our client forms will cover all the necessary information regarding this question. If you still want microblading done please consult with your doctor and get back to us with a written clearance consent.
