What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that uses a specialized, hand-controlled tool to make fine cuts in the skin to implant pigment that resembles the appearance of natural eyebrow hair. It is ideal for filling in sparse areas of the natural eyebrow where hair isn’t present, and also defining and enhancing brow shape.
Avoid tweezing, waxing, electrolysis and coloring your brows for two weeks prior to the procedure. This will allow your technician the most flexibility to achieve optimal results. Please be aware that we will remove your foundation and concealer to determine your true undertones—this is vital for us to choose the right color. We offer several different options of eyebrow pigmentation. (Microblading vs. traditional micropigmentation). We offer hair strokes, hair strokes with shading and fully shaded brows.
No alcohol 24 hours prior to procedure.
Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.
Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.

Post Procedure Instructions
In all cases, a follow-up appointment is recommended approximately six-to-eight weeks after your initial application to fine-tune and ensure best results.
Beginning 48 hours after your procedure, apply a very thin coat of Aquaphor ointment to the area twice a day for three to four days (or until all scabbing/crust has come off) after cleansing with mild soap or baby shampoo.
When the area starts to flake, leave it. Do not pick, peel or pull on the skin.
Avoid sweating such as from vigorous exercise for one week.
For at least one week post procedure, or until healing is complete (whichever is longer):
Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the affected area(s).
Do not scrub or pick treated areas.
Do not use peroxide or Neosporin on treated areas.
Do not expose area to direct sun or to tanning beds.
Avoid exposing the area excessive moisture or humidity, such as: facials, swimming, whirlpools (hot tubs), saunas, steam rooms and steamy showers.
Avoid Retin-A, moisturizers, glycolic acids, exfoliants and anti-aging products at all times (not just during healing) on all micropigmented areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lighten prematurely.
Pigments will slowly fade over time according to one’s metabolism, skin type, sun exposure, medication, facial surgery, and smoking. Schedule maintenance visits as needed to maintain fresh appearance.
Periodic touch-ups will ensure longer lasting results.
Individual selections made just for you
Each microblading stroke is applied individually, allowing the technician to control the shape, color and density of the completed eyebrows.
The treatment begins with mapping the desired shape by taking measurements that are unique to each individual, then using individual tattoo strokes or 'feathers' in the area to complete the shape and style requested. The color choice is patient-specific and is mixed using a natural selection of micropigments to complement hair color and skin tone to give the best look
