WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic that uses hair-thin strokes to provide a client with the optimal shape, color, density, and thickness of brows based on their personal preferences and what is complimentary to their face. This provides a very natural look compared to permanent cosmetics and/or tattooing.
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT.
•DO bring in reference pictures if you have an ideal shape or color. •You may fill in your brows as you normally do before you come to your appointment so we can take in consideration the shape you prefer. •DO NOT drink alcohol or take any blood thinning medications (I.e. Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Niacin, etc.) 24 hours before your appointment. •DO NOT get excessive sun or use a tanning bed 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your appointment.
AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT...
•You may experience redness and swelling up to 48 hours following. •The microbladed area will appear around 40% darker and bolder during the initial healing process. •In the first week you will begin to see the area soften and the color will start to lighten while healing. •The strokes may become itchy and flaky during the first two weeks. •*Do not pick/scratch the pigment* •*Please note that in the first 6 weeks the amount of pigment that you notice fades varies from client to client. You may feel like you are loosing too much color; please be advised that the skin regenerates the pigment and the healing process can in some cases hide the strokes completely. You must allow the full healing time of 6 weeks to see the true color.*
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BROWS?
•In the first 24 hours keep area dry. •For 10 days apply the balm 3 times a day, with a cotton swab. Before each application cleanse the area with a cotton swab and water. •Avoid soaps for 10 days when cleansing your face or showering. •If needed after 48 hours you are able to apply moisturizer before balm to prevent dryness/itchiness.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND TATTOING/PERMANENT COSMETICS?
Microblading is a semi- permanent cosmetic which allows you versatility going forward. You will be able to adjust your brows as needed while looking natural. Plus, no more filling in!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
The price includes the initial consultation, the first procedure and the enhancement session.
WHAT IS AN ENHANCEMENT SESSION?
The enhancement session is 4-6 weeks after the initial appointment. This is to allow the brows to heal as well as to give the client time to get adjusted to their brows. At the enhancement session we will talk about if the client wishes to make any changes in regards to color, thickness, density etc. We will then touch up the brows according to those preferences.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY BROW TREATMENT?
During an initial consultation, we will discuss the treatment in its entirety and together decide on most complimentary shape, color, thickness, and density that the client wishes to have. We will then, using high quality pigment, continue with the treatment.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE BROW DESIGN?
We work together to find a shape that works for your face shape and coloring. I also ask to bring in pictures of brows that you like. As for the color, we will test multiple to find the best one that fits you. I am also able to mix pigments to find the perfect color that suites you. Lastly, the brow design will follow your natural hair patterns to provide you with brows that look natural and complimenting.
HOW LONG WILL MY BROWS LAST FOR?
This can vary from client to client. It can last from 12- 18 months with proper care. If needed there is a Color Boost session available at 6 months after your treatment to maintain freshness. Medications and face products can change the durability.
DOES IT HURT?
A numbing cream is applied before and during the appointment to ensure that it is a comfortable experience. You will feel pressure and might feel it as a little scratchy.
For specific contraindications please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If any futher concerns please consult a doctor before intial appointment. If any specific conditions, please come prepared with a note from your doctor.

Aftercare Practices after your service
Wash you lashes once per day with a lash cleanser and pad dry with a towel. Use a clean lash wand to brush through lashes so that they can dry into place. Twist wand down on top with your eyes closed then fluff up underneath with your eyes open. Do this everytime you get your lashes wet.
