Text us a picture before your appointment if you have permanent makeup done previously by another artist. If you had Botox or other injections less than 2-3 weeks before treatment. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding .The number to send the picture is (305)962-2024.

 Before your appointment avoid alcohol and any drugs/vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. They are Vitamin E,Aspirin, B6, Omega 3, Gingko Biloba, St. John's Wort. Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone. No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior. Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so we can see your everyday look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcome. We will then work together to create the perfect brows! 


What are the post procedure care?

  

Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brows. Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days. Do not over apply healing balm. Do not immerse brow area in water for 10 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it. Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections. Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 3 weeks. No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 3 weeks after.

How long will it last?

  

This depends on age, skin type, lifestyle factors, and medication.  Younger skin tends to fade quicker, same with oily skin.  Frequent sun exposure will fade or often expose to certain chemicals (facial peels, chlorine, anti-aging products, etc.). Pigment retention varies depending on skin type, age, aftercare, immune system, medications, certain chemicals, and the type of pigment used. We recommend ALWAYS wearing sunscreen in your brows once healed.  A color boost is required usually between 18-24 months. A first touch-up is very important and  recommended 4-5 weeks.

Do you accept clients that have had work done by other artists?

Yes. We do take new clients that have had work done by other artists.  However, new clients are requested to text us a picture before your appointment or come for a consultation to estimate the value to be charged. If you do not want to do a previous consultation you will be charged as a new brow, with the initial visit and we recommend a 4-6 weeks touch up. 

Who is not suitable for the procedure?

  

If you have heart conditions or are using heart medications, have diabetes (you will need a physician's note). Have skin disease or irritations. Have had Anti-Wrinkle Injections in the last 3 weeks. Have gotten a deep tan or chemical peels in the last 3 weeks. Anyone who has any serious medical conditions may require a physician's note. Pregnant or nursing clients who want to do microblade can be done at your own discretion with a Doctor’s note.

What is Microblading?

 Microblading is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra-fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. It can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration  

Is it painful?

  

The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. We use strong anesthetic to numb the pain. Some clients are sleeping during the treatment! Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area are normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to light sunburn.

Can I get my touch up session sooner than 4 weeks?

  

Touch-up sessions should not be done earlier than 4 weeks after the initial microblading session as pigment color has not fully settled into the skin. Most importantly, this is to prevent scar damage as the tissue requires time to completely heal.

Risks and complications?

  

We take all proper precautions for a safe session by using sterilized equipment, new needles and in a sanitized environment. Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, there should be no risks or complications. Although allergic reactions to the pigments are rare, it could be possible for certain individuals. We suggest a pigment patch test (5-7 days before treatment date) for individuals who have high skin sensitivities or are sensitive to: topical makeup products.

What are your cancellation or missed appointment policies?

  

Clients are able to cancel or reschedule permanent makeup or scalp pigmentation appointments at any time with a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to the appointment time, otherwise, a fee will be charged. To cancel or reschedule, please email or text/call us. Please respect technician’s time that is dedicated just for you.
