FAQ:

BROWS

How long does the appointment take?

Your initial session will take between 2-3 hours. 

Is microblading right for me?​

Microblading works best with healthy skin with a lot of elasticity. If your skin is oily, has large pores, or is fragile and more mature we recommend that you opt for the powder shading option. Powder shading is less invasive. Everyone's skin is different so results will vary.​

If you are anemic and an easy bleeder your pigment may fade faster and bleeding may occur during and after the procedure.

If you are pregnant or nursing microblading is not right for you. 

IMPORTANT! If you have had your eyebrows previously tattooed, we will need to do a consultation before booking.

How long will the miroblading last?

Microblading results will last between 12-24 months. We recommend coming in every 9-12 months for an annual refresher.

What should I do to prepare for my appointment?
  • 24 hours - No alcohol, coffee, caffeine or preworkout

  • 5 days - No vitamins, supplements (especially fish oil) blood thinners, ibuprofen, aspirin, NSAIDS or any anti-inflammatory medicine.

  • No retinols for 1 week prior to treatment

  • No peels/chemical peels 4 weeks prior to treatment

  • No spray tan 1 week prior to treatment 

  • No covid vaccine within 2 weeks of your appointment.

  • No botox within 2 weeks of your appointment.

  • No antibiotics for 4 weeks prior to treatment

  • No accutane for 1 full year prior to treatment.

  • No working out the morning of your appointment please

  • Following these instructions is EXTREMELY important. It greatly affects the retention and will produce grey/purple discolored healed strokes & colors. It also decreases the strength of the numbing cream. 

Let your brows grow - we want as much hair as possible! Do not pluck, wax, sugar or thread 4 weeks in advance.

How long will they take to heal?

Your microblading will appear 30%-40% DARKER for the first 3-5 days. They will start to soften significantly and may become dry and flaky - similar to a peeling sunburn. Do not use eyebrow pencil or any other type of makeup directly on your brows for the first 1-2 weeks. Do not submerge your brows in water (pool, oceans, jacuzzi).
