Microblading FAQs

Yes, I am a Certified Permanent Makeup Artist
Ombre and Powder Brows are a type of permanent make-up, inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin with a tattoo machine. It creates fullness and design to the eyebrows. This technique differs from 3-d Microblading in that a misty, powder filled brow is created similar to the look of make-up as opposed to simulated hair. The tails of the brows are darker, and fade into a light start to the brow..giving that perfect ombre makeup effect! They will be waterproof, smudge proof and completely realistic. It lasts longer than Microblading- typically around 2 years on average, depending on the client's skin type, lifestyle and various other factors. Over time the pigment will fade leaving the skin and your natural eyebrows behind.
It is a semi-permanent makeup method; the technique is natural feathering of hair like strokes directly on the skin's surface that creates natural looking eyebrows. 3D Eyebrow Microblading creates the background and fills in the areas of the eyebrows that look empty so that a full and complete look is accomplished. the "3D" effect adds realism to the end result. Unlike a traditional eyebrow tattoo, 3D Eyebrow Microblading does not have a flat, dull and fake look that tattoos leave behind and is a MUCH SAFER treatment. The 3D Eyebrow Microblading method can fill in sparse brows or create an entire brow, which makes it the perfect procedure for men and women.
Permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have:
  • pregnant or nursing
  • diabetic
  • undergoing chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
  • viral infecions and/or diseases
  • a pacemaker or major heart problems
  • had an organ transplant
  • skin irritations near the treated area ( rashes, sunburn, acne, etc)
  • sick ( cold, flu, etc.)
  • had Botox in the past 2 months
  • used accutane in the past year
I get mixed reviews on pain. Everyone has a different level of sensitivity so topical anesthetics are applied before and during the treatment to alleviate any sensation or discomfort. Some clients naturally feel one brow sorer than the other. You will hear a scratching noise/ sensation throughout. Music is usually played during the procedure, however feel free to bring your own earphones and music to distract you.
Absolutely. Sterilized disposable needles and supplies are used during the process.
You won't be swollen, you just might have slightly red skin around eyebrows, but this would last no more than 1 hour.
Yes. It does not affect hair growth in any way.
Most likely. Within a week of your first treatment the color will fade significantly and over the next 4-6 weeks can continue to fade as much as 50%. This is considered a extremely positive occurrence as it allows you time to reflect on your shape and color. After this period your follow up appointment is carried out and any changes you would like to make are discussed.
In order to keep your eyebrows looking fresh, I recommend a touch up every year.

It will last as long as it's maintained. Untouched, the ink will last up to 4 years.
Because color is implanted in the facial area there tends to be more fluid circulation than other parts of the body. Your face sees the most wear of any part of you- exposure to the sun, food, facial products-- the list goes on and on. All of these things cause permanent color to fade, this is why you need a touch up.
The procedure takes roughly about 2 hours, sometime more sometimes less. Please allow a solid 3 hour window for your appointment. I likely won't need that much time, but this isn't something I want to rush.
No. there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
Healing time varies from individual to individual. Usually, it takes about 7-10 days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off. Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin. A good month should pass before I consider the process compete.
Eyebrow tattooing is a 2 step treatment, consisting of the initial procedure and then a touch up between 4-6 weeks after. After taking your before photo, I will draw the brow design in pencil so you get an idea of shape and form. ( Please note that no person's face is totally symmetrical and you need to be realistic with your expectations. There is no point in trying to make the eyebrows identical or match a photo or your favorite celebrities' eyebrows if your face shape looks nothing like theirs. ) Once we have agreed on a final shape (ultimately it is your decision- but i will always voice my opinion on what I think suits you aesthetically), I will shape your eyebrows then we will decide on the color. Shortly after that, a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure comfort. Once you are numb, the pigment is deposited. During healing it is normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up in place
You are advised to keep the skin clean and dry, that means no swimming, sweating, or otherwise getting the area wet; no tanning or prolonged sun exposure. No picking, peeling , scratching or rubbing the tattoo..this may result in a loss or color or scarring. You can still wash your hair and face and one they are healed up, you treat them as your own.
Your beautiful eyebrows will last longer if you apply sunblock often and avoid abrasive facial treatments in the brow area.
Of the 9 main colors I use, I can blend several to achieve even more shades to suit the client. ALL clients who have had the procedure done will be conscious they have brows that are very obvious, However please bear in mind, the skin has been broken to allow the pigment to settle, and healing has yet to take place. This is why I ask you to bring your eyebrow pencil (if you use one) with you to your appointment-- so I can match the pigment to the desired HEALED RESULT, which emerges after the crusts naturally fall off and the skin gently exfoliates itself to reveal the new brow. Clients who are use to having no brows for a long time, can find these few week challenging. I usually advise clients who have no brows to start wearing pencil or brow shading for some time before the process so they used to having a brow!
No. Every attempt is made to retain all natural hair and integrate it into the design of the permanent eyebrows. In some cases, where shaping of the natural brow is required, a few hairs here and there may need to be removed to create a clean and aesthetically pleasing result.
Yes, it does happen and yes it's true! A third appointment is often set up so the client has the opportunity to return and I get the chance to review the work and sort out any ( if any) tweaks that might need to be done. Often times the clients cancel this appointment as all is usually well, however there are the occasional few that may need one or two extra strokes to finish off the look. Some ladies skin may react to the trauma of the tattooing, and the skin may try to push out the foreign body of pigment by producing and extreme scab, so they eventually fall of taking all the pigment with it. There is a condition call Pigment Allergy (PPD Allergy, a condition known by dermatologists) or Auto Immune disease symptoms ( the client may not even be aware of it) . Then skin would have over reacted and become super sensitve to the pigment and reject it at any cost.
Unfortunately , I can't. How the skin will react is different for everyone and many factors are to be taken into consideration. Skin type, age, scarring, diet, stress levels, facial products used, etc. all play a key role in how the pigment will hold, which is why it is important to know that more than one touch up may be required. I can guarantee that your face is important to me and that I will act in accordance with my experience and expertise to give you my absolute best. I can guarantee that I will strive to make you gratified and content every time. But there are no guarantees in this industry. Please think long and hard before you decide to go for it.
Although Microblading or Eyebrow Tattooing is considered to be semi-permanent, the procedure does allow flexibility for color or shape change to some extent. However, i will work closely with you to ensure that you are satisfied with the proposed technique. I will allow you to have as much control over the procedure as possible, so there is very little room for error. If you do now like the decision you made, the touch up can be cancelled and the pigmented area naturally fades away over time. if you aren't 100% sure you would benefit from this procedure, please opt for a more temporary option.
Yes, whether you need a lot done or not, price is standard. I do not base the price on how much work I do for each client.
