Before Microblading Eyebrows
Microblading results create amazing looking eyebrows, however the procedure is not recommended for everyone. To prevent any complications relating to your overall well being, please review all the information below: microblading requirements; contraindications; and medications to avoid before your appointment.
Proper preparation for a microblading appointment will also help to achieve the best possible healed results, so be sure to prepare accordingly.
***Appointments typically last 2 hours; babies or children can't be present during your appointment, so please make necessary arrangements in advance.
***Please come to an appointment wearing your makeup as you normally do. By doing so, it helps in communicating the desired color preference of your eyebrows.

what the microblading healing process is like
We recommend that a touch up is performed 12-18 months after your initial appointment to keep the color looking vibrant and the microblade strokes looking crisp. Skin cells turn over more frequently on oilier skin types causing the color to fade quicker than drier skin types. For oilier skin types more frequent touch ups may be required which are not included in the original price.
