*What is Microblading?
Microblading is a tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. Depending on skin type, lifestyle, skincare routine, and aftercare these beautiful new brows can last 1-3 years.
*How much does Microblading cost?
$400 for the initial appointment. $100 for the Perfecting appointment 4-6 weeks after (required for “complete” brows). $100 deposit is required to book an appointment. The deposit will come off of the final price.
$250 for any additional “refreshing” appointments within 18 months of the Perfecting appointment (Consultation required before booking).
*How long will this last?
Depending on skin type, lifestyle, skincare routine, and aftercare new brows can last 1-3 years. (Wear sunscreen, avoid exfoliation and chemical peels, avoid skincare products that encourage cellular renewal. Oily skin does not retain pigment as well as dryer skin).
*What can I expect at the initial visit?
The initial appointment will take about 3 hours. I request that no guests be allowed and for you to come relaxed. We will begin by mapping your brows and working together to create a shape you love. This is based on your unique bone structure and hair pattern. If you wish to have numbing during the procedure, please let me know BEFORE we start. This takes about 10 minutes. I will then use disposable tools to fill individual hair strokes. We start with one brow, mask strokes with pigment, then move to the other brow and again mask. Depending on skins texture I will need to make 2-3 passes over each hair stroke to ensure color saturation. We finish with a final pigment mask for 10-15 minutes while I go over aftercare.
*What’s the aftercare?
You are responsible for your brows once you leave! Please keep them clean! Once you leave, gently cleanse them with clean hands and a gentle fragrance free soap, pat dry, and apply a very thin layer of After Inked lotion. Try to get 3-5 cleanses in before bed. I can provide you with Phi Patches if you require/request. These will help keep out moisture and germs. For the first week try and keep the brow area from getting soaked or wet for any extended amount of time. Avoid sweating, steam, and tanning beds. No makeup, masks, creams (other than After Inked lotion) or other skin treatments. After the first week avoid extended time in the sun, tanning beds, and aggressive skin treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, light therapy, and anti-aging products that contain fruit acids or regeneration factors. You can begin to wear sunscreen. Always avoid laser treatments as this can destroy pigment and cause burns.
Yes, I’d like to see you 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment so that you and I can review how the skin healed and fill in any spots that may need extra attention. We can also address any concerns you may have over shape and color. This session will take about 2 hours.
*How can I prepare?
Two months beforehand - no Botox. One week before appointment please no aggressive skin treatments, sunburns, or waxing/threading. 48 hours before please no aspirin, alcohol, or anything that can thin the blood. Take note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
