Microblading uses hair-like strokes to enhance your brows shape, definition and color.
It is common to lose hairs as we age or fall victim to the over-plucking phase. Microblading is a great way to restore your brows. Our brow expert is happy to educate on the proper shape and style for your eyebrows according to your facial structure. She encourages feedback from you on your style preferences to ensure your outcome is exactly what you want. With many years of experience, expertise and customer care you will feel taken care of from the beginning to end of your services.
See below for more information including, frequently asked questions, what to expect, pre and post care, before and after photos and pricing:
What is Microblading? A technique performed by a highly trained brow artist applies fine, hair-like strokes drawn onto the skin by means of a sterile tool. This treatment gives the appearance of fuller, more defined eyebrows.
How long does the session take? Depending on the patients comfort level, the first session can range from 120-150 mins (this includes time for photos and paperwork). The second session takes 20-30 minutes.
How far apart is each session? After the initial appointment of 120-150 minutes, the second stage of the treatment is required 30 days later. It takes a minimum of 24 days for the skin to completely heal so the longer the better.
How long does it last? This is a semi-permanent treatment lasting 6-12 months depending on the type of skin and after care procedure. Dry and thin skins have a higher retention whereas thick and oily skins have less retention.
When should I get touch-ups? Touch-ups should be done when you start to see fading or missing strokes around 6-12 months. Touch-ups help your Microblading last longer. If you wait too long and let your brows completely fade or flake away, then a full retreat will be required.
Does Microblading hurt? The discomfort from Microblading depends on a variety of things. Patient’s natural pain tolerance can be affected by menstrual cycles, medications, skin problems and overall skin conditions. For some people it may be very tolerable with little to no discomfort and others may feel moderate to severe discomfort. Therefore, we use great anesthetic which numbs patients to ease with the discomfort or eliminate it completely.
I am planning a vacation, can I still get Microblading? The best time to do Microblading is 14 days before or after vacation. The reason being is that 14 days gives the outer layer of the skin time to heal to protect it from water and sun damage. After vacation skin may be sun burnt or overexposed to sunlight so it is better to allow natural complexion and texture to resurface.
I have previous work done on my brows. Can I still get Microblading? Yes, in most cases previous cosmetic make-up can be covered with beautiful hair strokes, but there are times when previous PMU may be too dark. The skin may be badly scarred or the previous shape doesn’t fit into our natural desired shape and in these cases it is safer not working on those brows. A consult with a brow expert is recommended to see if you are a candidate or not.
Should I wax before the procedure? No, it is not suggested to wax at least one week prior to procedure and at least 2 weeks post procedure. Your Microblading artist will tweeze the extra hair as needed.
How much does Microblading cost? $650 includes the first treatment and second treatment 30 days later. Touch-ups 6-12 months later cost $325. Touch-ups are only done over our previous work.
Is a consult required before treatment? Yes, the consult is designed to cover many bases before starting the procedure. Such as determining if you are a good candidate, review medical contraindications, take before photos, discuss and choose color, review shapes and any other questions or concerns.
Our vision is to give clients exceptional service with equally exquisite results.
