Is Microblading for me?
MUST BE 18/OR OVER TO DO MICROBLADING EYEBROW SERVICES
Microblading is not for everyone. Some may not retain pigments the way others do. Everyone's skin is different so please keep in mind when you opt to do the procedure the results will depend on your skin not the microblading artist. The artist is experienced in the procedure to create and simulate single hair strokes in your brows but are not licensed dermatologists so please keep in mind these conditions below before making an appointment.
ANYONE WITH THESE PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS MUST OBTAIN A DOCTORS NOTE:
Any serious diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders
MUST NOT BE/HAVE:
Breastfeeding ( possible without any anesthetic or numbing cream)
Menstruating - procedure is possible but not RECOMMENDED because the sensitivity is heightened
Currently on Accutane or other strong retinoids (must wait 6 months to a year after treatment ends)
Taking blood thinners
Existing solid tattoos
Skin diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, severe acne or rash around the brows, contact dermatitis, skin ulcers, or any cutaneous conditions
Must not have allergies to iron oxide, glycerin, alcohol as these are the ingredients in the pigments.
TYPES OF SKIN AND CONDITIONS THAT MAY NOT RETAIN PIGMENT/INK AS LONG AS NORMAL SKIN: (Some people retain the pigment better than others. Duration is dependent on a number of factors (i.e. lifestyle, hygiene, sun exposure, smoking etc). Some people decide to freshen their brows after just 6 months, as pigment will begin to fade after time, however they can last up to 2 years with no touchups.)
Strong immune system
Skin that keloids
Client consent forms are signed
Clients eyebrows and face shape are analyzed carefully. Measuring tool is then used to evenly draw out clients eyebrows and lastly, procedure will proceed with final approval from client for the shape,design and color
After the approval of the drawing, numbing cream is applied over the entire outlined brow and covered with saran wrap for 25 minutes
Once the treated area is numb, a microblading pen (made up of many tiny sharp needles at an angle or a u-shape) is dipped in pigment and further etched in to create hair-like strokes. After the first pass, extra pigment is then rubbed in to make sure every etched hair stroke is filled with pigment- called pigment mask. After wiping off excess pigment, client will immediately see the simulated hair-strokes. A layer of anesthetic ointment is used for the second pass and the process is repeated for the other side. Artist will go through the process again until brows look full and defined and client is satisfied. If client starts getting sensitive, any additional strokes will be done at touch up.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
Client will be given a mirror to do a final check and lastly given a packet of hustle butter to care for the treated area along with the aftercare instructions.
Follow up appointment is made for a 5 to 6 week touch up.

THE HEALING PROCESS - General guideline (please not everyone's skin is different so healing will depend on each client)
Your new eyebrows will go through several phases. You will be able to see the true color of pigments around 3 to 4 weeks. Touch ups are included and recommended at least 5 to 6 weeks after initial treatment. During touch up, client will be able to discuss and achieve any changes or additions to the design, shape and fullness of their new eyebrows.
Day 1- 2
Pigments are still on surface and looks amazing. Eyebrows appear darker throughout the day and darkest usually by the second day. Possible swelling and redness.
Exfoliation begins which makes the eyebrows start to itch, flake, and peel. (please leave brows alone during this stage)
Day 8-14 (usually by the 10th day, your brows will look like its been completely faded but depending on your skin, the ink should resurface and you should see the strokes again.)
Pigments start to settle in softening the pigment color then fading almost completely. This is normal. Color will clarify as the skin cells push it back up to the surface but please be advised that your brows do not always appear even. After the 5th week, when your brows have been fully healed, your touch up will restore all strokes for a complete and finished look.
