Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure. It's done with a single-use disposable microblade, manually, stroke by stroke. No electric machine. The pigment (not tattoo ink) is placed in the epidermis, closer to the surface of the skin. After 18 months most pigment will fade naturally as new skin regenerates.
You will need 2 sessions to complete your new brows, 4-6 weeks apart to allow full healing before the perfecting session. In the perfecting session, we will create a finished look with more blended strokes, as well as replace any strokes that may have fallen out during healing. Extremely oily skin types are more prone to pigment fall-out.
During your consultation, we will discuss your brow preferences, measure your face, and draw an outline until you are satisfied to start the service. You may wear your normal brow makeup if you prefer, to show me how you typically wear your brows. Inspiration photos are always welcome, too. Keep in mind that my best interest is to suit your face shape and compliment your facial structure while still meeting your personal preferences!
Things to know before booking:
For your comfort, I apply a topical numbing cream before the procedure(5% lidocaine) , and another numbing gel again ( 5% lidocaine, 2% tetracaine, and 0.02% epinephrine) once the procedure has started and the first few strokes are placed. If you have had an allergic reaction to an anaesthetic before, you may still receive the service without numbing. If you are unsure, a patch test can be administered at no charge before booking your appointment.
There are a few contra indications that will require a doctors note for clearance in order to receive the service. These include clients with diabetes, heart problems, anemia, epilepsy, or cancer/chemotherapy within the last 6 months. I will not perform service on pregnant or breastfeeding clients.
If you have been prescribed Accutane, you must be off of the medication for at least 1 year. If you were taking Accutane for over a year, you must be off of the medication for at least as long as you were taking it. Due to skin sensitivity, microblading cannot be performed if you have used Retain-A in the last 2 weeks. Microblading cannot be performed if you have had a chemical or laser peel in the last 6 weeks. Microblading may not be suitable for individuals with keloid scarring, depending on severity. A scratch-test is advised to avoid scarring from this service.
Please avoid blood thinning medication atleast 72 hours before your appointment. (This includes vitamin e and fish oil supplements. It's advised to not drink alcohol or caffeine the night before, or the day of your microblading appointment. Super important: Avoid excess sun exposure and TANNING BEDS 30 days before as well as after your appointment. Take extra care to use an spf (after brows are fully healed) to protect from excessive fading.
Pricing includes both initial and perfecting session. You must be atleast 18 years of age to receive microblading services.
