How long are the treatments?
We schedule a 2.5 hour appointment with 30 minutes for medical numbing cream. 15 - 20 minutes for brow design & measurements. 60 - 90 minutes of treatment time. We re-apply numbing cream throughout the treatment.
Are there any restrictions on when I should get microblading treatment?
There are certain medical contraindications for microblading, we will go over these in your consultation. Microblading should be done at least 14 days AFTER a Botox, Dysport or Xeomin treatment. Also wait at least 14 days after a microblading treatment to get a treatment of Botox, Dysport or Xeomin.
Please give yourself 10 - 14 days to heal before needing to attend an event or sun/beach vacation.
Can I get other facial treatments?
We recommend waiting to get any kind of facial, chemical peel or laser treatment on the face for 14 days after microblading and nothing but a regular facial for 14 days prior to microblading.
How long does it take for brows to heal?
Initial healing takes 5 - 10 days with the balm that we give to you. After that brows will look 'cloudy' and light, as there is a layer of skin over the fresh strokes. This skin exfoliates off over the next 3 weeks. They are fully healed at week 5 or 6. The more diligent you are with the after care instructions, the better your outcome will be. We send you home with detailed after care instructions.
Touch Ups - EVERY client needs at least one touch up, some will need two touch ups, after the initial treatment. Without the touch up you will not get maximum pigment retention. Touch ups are done 8 weeks after the initial treatment and the cost is $75-100.
Note: We do not offer touch up pricing on other artists work. We will give you a quote for this on a case by case basis.
Is this treatment for all skin types?
Microblading as a stand alone treatment is only recommended for truly dry skin types and mature skin. Combo brows are suggested for combination skin. This includes microblading & machine shading. Powder/ombré brows are all machine shading and are recommended for oily skin types.
How long does permanent makeup last?
Once the desired brow is achieved in usually 2, or sometimes 3, sittings total - your brows will stay pigmented for usually 18 months to 2 years before needing a color boost. This timeframe is an estimate and it may vary. Some contributing factors for pigment retention are: aftercare compliance, sun exposure, skin type, skins healing ability, skin products used, facial treatments, laser treatments etc.
Eyeliner tattoo’s need to be touched up generally once a year after the initial 2 sessions are completed 4-6 weeks apart.
What type of pigment is used?
We use a fully synthetic pigment. There is no iron oxide in our pigment which means that the color stays true and does not fade to an undesired color. The pigment is semi permanent and is designed to be built up over multiple treatments and it is also designed to fade and lighten over time, when we refresh it with a color boost treatment at 12-18 months.
Our black eyeliner tattoo’s are done with permanent Kuro Sumi carbon based pigment, for a deep black healed result.
Can I still get a microblading treatment if I tattooed my brows in the past?
If you have any previous permanent or semi-permanent makeup on your brows or eyeliner areas we will determine if any removal or lightening sessions should be done prior to getting them re done by us on a case by case basis.
We offer laser removal sessions for $50 per session for brows and also saline tattoo removal sessions for $150+ for brows & eyeliner.

"I have had a passion for eyebrows since my first day of aesthetics training, 22 years ago. I quickly realized that I could see the potential in every eyebrow that I came across. To my delight, I also realized that I have a natural talent for shaping eyebrows.The eyebrows are such a seemingly small detail, yet a well shaped eyebrow has a dramatic impact on our appearance. It makes us look well groomed and it opens up the eyes. After all, the first place that people look when they talk to us, is our eyes. I look forward to meeting you and to helping you achieve your fullest eyebrow potential!"
