We have provided the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions as well as some important information that can be helpful before, during, and after getting your cosmetic procedure. 

Pre/Post Care

pre/post care

COSMETIC TATTOOING IS NOT FOR CLIENTS WHO: - are pregnant - are diabetic - are undergoing Chemotherapy (consult with your doctor) - have viral infections (diseases) - have had Botox within a 2 week period of appointment -have had an organ transplant - have epilepsy - are sick with a cold or flu-like virus -have used Accutane in the past 6 months​ PRE-APPOINTMENT: Stop using any skin thinners (Vitamin A, glycolic acids, exfoliation) on the brow area 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Any waxing or brow shaping should be done at least 2 days before. If you tint your brows, tint them at least 1 week prior to the procedure. Cosmetic botox or fillers should be done 2 weeks prior or 2 weeks after. DO NOT consume alcohol, caffeine or take any blood thinners (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Niacin) 48 hours before your procedure. This will cause excess bleeding and may affect your results. You may come in with your normal brow makeup on so I can see how you normally wear them.  This is especially important for clients who desire a specific brow shape. If you are open to suggestions, I am happy to help design a custom brow to personally suit you. You may experience hypersensitivity and more pain around or during your menstrual cycle. We will not be able to tattoo over any blemishes, sores, or moles in or around the brow area. EYEBROW AFTER CARE: After care is crucial. It is very important to follow these instructions for the full 10 day period after your session to ensure proper healing and color retention. Results will vary for all individuals and can not be guaranteed. Use a gentle cleanser (lather it up in your hands) and wash your brows morning and night everyday for 7-10 days or until the flaking has stopped. Make sure you blot the completely dry with a clean towel after washing.  Allow NO WATER to collect or sit in the brow area. Apply the ointment provided to your brows 3-4 times a day for the next 7 days. Add a very small amount (size of a piece of rice) to each brow with clean fingers. Oily skin types may be told to avoid ointment all together and allow a dry heal process for the 7-10 days. WHAT TO EXPECT: DO NOT expect your brow tattoos to heal perfectly after the first session. This can be a 2 step process. It takes time.  BE PATIENT during your 10 day healing process. Your brows will change and appear different from day to day. Immediately after your procedure, brows will appear darker and more defined. This will last up to 2 weeks . Your brow tattoo can appear more solid, hair strokes may seem to disappear and it may look wet and painted on. Around days 4-5 you will experience flaking and your brows may look dry. DO NOT PICK your brows, let any dryness fall off naturally. If flakes get picked off prematurely missing hair strokes will result and cause patchy brows which can lead to scarring. Your brow tattoo will take up to 4 weeks to fully heal. When the flaking comes off the hair strokes may seem faint. This is because a fresh layer of skin has healed over the brow tattoo. Give your brows a few weeks and the hair strokes will become clearer.  Color will continue to change on a daily basis until all healing is complete at the 4 week mark. You may experience itchiness in the brows after the 10 days for up to 2 months due to the healing process of the dermal layer. Not everyone’s microbladed brows can heal clean and crisp. Hairstrokes for oilier skin types tend to heal more solid and powdery while drier skin types tend to heal more crisp and defined. Also, those who bleed more may tend to need more touchups as the blood can push the pigment out while tattooing. THINGS NOT TO DO: DO NOT expose your brows to the sun during the healing process.  UV Rays can alter the pigment of your tattoo.  Following the first 10 days SPF is important for the longevity of your micropigmentation.​ DO NOT sweat excessively for 10 days. Sweat contains salt and can infect and prematurely fade your brow tattoo. Salt in the sweat may also alter the color of your tattoo.  Moderate exercise is fine. DO NOT run direct water on your brow tattoo. This is especially important in the first few days as you do not want to wash out any pigment. DO NOT use Vaseline on your tattoo. DO NOT use any makeup, creams, or exfoliants on the brows for 10 days. DO NOT go into saunas, pools, or steam rooms. DO NOT get massages, facials or skin treatments during the healing process. DO NOT go tanning. If you do, cover your brow tattoo. UV rays can alter the color of your tattoo. DO NOT use exfoliants, retinol acids, or AHAs on the brow area.  It will fade your tattoo prematurely. DO NOT use laser light therapy on your brow tattoo. This can darken, lighten, or distort the pigment. TOUCH UPs: Allow your brows a MINIMUM of 4 weeks to heal before booking a touch up.  This gives you the time to decide if you do or do not need a touch up appointment. It takes a full 4-6 weeks for the color to settle. It is your responsibility to book your touch up appointments. Please keep the high demand in mind. If your tattoo comes back too faded additional charges may apply. Touch ups are typically done around 8 weeks after the initial appointment. This can be a 2 (and sometimes even 3) step process. The first session is used to build shape and gain symmetry. The second session is used to perfect the brows and add density. This is a process and some clients may need multiple sessions to achieve their desired result. Do not expect perfect results after the first session. On darker skin and oily skin, permanent makeup will not look as bold or sharp compared to lighter, dryer skin type clients. Some clients' skin may have a harder time retaining pigment and may require additional sessions. LONG TERM CARE: THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF RESULTS as everyone’s result will vary due to skin type, lifestyle, the initial 10 day care and the longterm care of your brow tattoo. Use at least SPF 50 to protect your brows as sun exposure will cause fading and can alter the color of your tattoo. Do not use chemical exfoliants on the brows. This will cause the brows to fade faster. As the tattoo fades the strokes will get fainter and less defined. Maintenance is required to maintain desired results. Touchups are done, on average, every 9 – 24 months to maintain your brow tattoo. Microbladed brows typically last 1-3 years.

  • What is Microblading?
    Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery or 3D brows, is a relatively new manual method for enhancing eyebrows and is considered permanent makeup. Compared to the traditional shading technique done by a machine, microblading is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigment into the epidermis. Because the color is closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no spilling under the skin. The difference with this and ordinary permanent makeup is that microblading is not done by a machine. The pigment is manually placed into the skin. The manual microblading pen is equipped with sterile packaged blades. The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and creates fine cuts, as fine as a paper cut, leaving a trace that can hardly be distinguished from real hair. Depending on the drawing technique, microblading creates an individual look perfect for your face and the style you are trying to achieve. Above all 3D, or HD, eyebrows absolutely do not appear as a tattoo. Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair you currently have. People suffering from alopecia or any other condition that causes hair loss would benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows.
  • How long will it last?
    There are many factors that contribute to the duration of your microbladed or microshaded brows. Your aftercare, the condition of your skin, the oiliness of your skin and your daily routines can all affect how long your microblading lasts. Taking these factors into account, your new brows can last 18-24 months. Yearly touchups are required thereafter. Clients that have oiler skin may not retain the pigment as well. Everyone will respond to the precedure differently. Results are not guaranteed.
  • How long will treatment take?
    Usually, Microblading is done in two sessions. The first takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client's preference. Pigment is applied six to eight weeks later during the second session touchup which takes one to two hours. Remember that the final result isn't determined until after your second appointment which is why it is called the "perfection session". At this appointment we will assess the color, re-evaluate how your skin is reacting to the pigment and make any changes necessary. Additional touchup appointments may be necessary for customers with very oily skin, problematic skin, darker pigmentation or customers that did not follow the after care procedures correctly.
  • Is Microblading painful?
    The level of discomfort is relatively minor. Some liken it to tweezing two to three hairs at the same time. Usually a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area being worked. Topical anesthetics are safe and may contain lidocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine. Redness and slight swelling in the area is common after the procedure. Often clients liken the feeling to a slight sunburn. Frequently Tylenol is used to deaden any discomfort.
  • Is Microblading for EVERYONE?
    YES! Microblading is an amazing treatment for everyone! It is fantastic for all styles of brows. Some have it done to make their makeup routine easier everyday, while others have it done to enhance their natural brows and frame their face. Some have it done when they have no brows at all due to age, over-plucking or as a result of illness. However there are some situations where microblading isn't suitable. Treatment is not suitable for: - Those using Accutane - anyone with a heart condition or using heart medications - anyone with diabetes, unless having received a physician's approval - anyone with skin diseases or inflammations - anyone who had Botox in the last two weeks - anyone who has gotten a deep tan or chemical peel in the last two weeks - anyone who requires anesthetic and is allergic to lidocaine, tetracaine, or epinephrine - anyone with serious medical conditions who have neither consulted with nor obtained the approval of their doctor. - anyone that is pregnant - anyone on blood thinning medications - Chemotherapy patients - Diabetics - Hemophiliacs - anyone with Hepatitis - anyone with extremely senistive or acne prone skin
  • What should I expect during my treatment?
    During your first treatment we start by spending time measuring, designing and drawing your perfect brow shape [this process is called Mapping]. There will be a discussion about picking the desired color which will be custom blended perfectly to the pigment that suits you. Once the above results are determined then we microblade this pigment through the brow. Microblading is not painless but it is bearable and we use a topical anaesthetic to help you feel comfortable.
  • Aftercare. How do I care for my new brows?
    Looking after your brows is simple! There will be a conversation about aftercare in detail after your treatment, but for now, please understand that it takes about a week for your new brows to heal. On the first day, you will be required to rinse brows a certain number of times after leaving the studio and follow with the aftercare ointment that is provided. We offer a complimentary consultation so please get in contact with us to organize a time and date that suits you. This only takes 5-10 minutes and it is when we can discuss the shape and style you want for your new brows.
  • What is Lip Blushing and what can I expect from this procedure?
    Lip Blushing is used to enhace the lips' natural shape, symmetry, and color. A customized pigment is applied to add definition to your lips and conceal imperfections based on your skin tone and personal preference. Your lips will look like lipstick on the first day, and soften as they heal to become a very subtle, natural looking lip tint. Apply a little gloss or balm and your lips will look beautiful 24-7! If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing can cause outbreaks. We ask that our clients take their prescribed anti-viral medication a few days prior to their appointment and after the procedure to prevent any cold sores. If you have an outbreak, or any other type of scratch on or around the lip area, we ask that you reschedule your appointment. - There may be moderate swelling, redness and bruising for the first 3 days. - If you experience swelling, use an ice pack for no more than 15 mintues at a time to reduce inflammation. - During the initial healing period there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own. This usually takes place within the first 3 days. - Expect the color to lighten up to 50-70% once the healing process is complete. - Color may appear uneven at different stages of healing. Be patient. This is a process that does not yield immediate results. - Permanent makeup ink is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink. Lip Blushing does fade and is expected to last 2-5 years before requiring a touchup. Maintenance touchups are suggested for best results. - It can take 2 sessions prior to achieving the level of saturation you may desire.
