What is Microblading/3D Brows?


Microblading is a less invasive form of permanent makeup that uses a disposable hand tool with ‘microblades’ that deposit semi-permanent pigment into the epidermis of the skin. Microblading creates the most natural looking eyebrows by creating hair stokes to mimic your natural eyebrow hair. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows.


Microblading is a 2 step process, usually 8 weeks apart. It is important to complete both the initial procedure and touch up.


Step 1: The initial procedure takes approximately 2 hours. During this time, a consultation is done where we discuss your desired brow look, choose a color tone and draw the initial outline of the procedure area for your approval. Though our faces are NOT perfectly symmetrical (one side is usually flatter than the other), I do my very best to create as much symmetry as possible! As I like to say, BROWS ARE SISTERS, NOT TWINS. Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and semi-permanent pigment is applied with a disposable microblading hand tool. This procedure uses a manual hand tool and not a machine.

Step 2: The second stage of the treatment is a TOUCH-UP appointment. The touch up takes approximately 1 hour. Touch ups are done no earlier than 6 weeks of your initial procedure and no later than 10 weeks. If you do not schedule your touch up appointment within 10 weeks, you will be required to pay a touch up fee.


It is imperative you complete the touch up treatment. Without it, the results will not be optimal. Color will fade significantly within 4 weeks as the skin heals, peels and fades. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes, color tones and finishes the process.


Occasionally a third touch up (8 to 10 weeks later) is necessary for certain clients where the pigment does not take well to the skin (oily skin, improper after care, etc.).


Touch-Up Fee will be $50 added to the original touch up cost.

Preparation and FAQ’s


How to prepare for your appointment?


  • 24 hours prior to your appointment, DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL or CAFFEINE.

  • 72 hours prior to your appointment, DO NOT TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Niacin or Vitamen E unless medically necessary.

  • Botox should be done 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the procedure.

  • Avoid booking during your menstrual cycle as it can increase your pain.

  • No waxing, tanning or tinting 3 days before

  • Arrive with no makeup for your appointment. A lot of wiping of pigment takes place and makeup can get ruined.

  • Be prepared for your brows to look a little red and really dark! – don’t worry, they will fade in color about 30-50%




How long can I expect it to last?


The pigment used in microblading is semi-permanent and can last between 1-3 years. The pigment will begin to fade within 12 months. In order to keep your brows looking fresh, a touch is recommended every 12 months to 24 months maximum.


For clients with oily skin, choose a softer look with a lighter color, or those who did not follow the after care instructions properly may require more frequent touch ups.


Factors that will cause your microbladed brow tattoo fade faster:


  • Iron deficiency

  • Sun exposure

  • Exfoliant

  • Very Strong immune system

  • Exposure to salt water

  • Smoking


How long is the recovery or healing time?


Immediately after your microblading procedure and in the first 10 days, your brows will appear significantly darker and defined than perhaps your desired look. It may continue to get darker over the next few days as scabs begin to form, however this is not an accurate indication of the finished and healed result. 30-50% of your brow color will fade as the scabs fall off within 7-10 days. In some cases, the scabs may take longer to heal and fall off. DO NOT PICK YOUR SCABS. The pigment is within the scab and you do not want to pull any pigment out of your skin prematurely. We all heal differently and what works on one client may not be effective on another so please do not compare your results.


The complete healing process takes approximately 6 weeks.


What types of pigments do you use?


I use iron oxide pigments that will fade over time and are naturally absorbed by the skin. Iron oxides are innocuous, harmless, vegan, and perfectly safe for your skin.
