- CONSULTATION -

We will first draw on the brow by hand, to get to the shape that is made just for you. The specialist will take into account existing brow shape, your facial structure, and your preferences. Once we decide on the brow form, we consult on the color. A hue is mixed to order (we will track the formulation, for future touch-ups), from pigments made with FDA-certified ingredients made in the USA. Book Appointment

- THE PROCEDURE -

You will be asked to fill out a consent form and a topical anesthetic cream will be applied to numb the area before we complete the design process. We will carefully design your start, arch and tails to represent the shape we intend on creating.

Feel free to bring photos of the way you normally draw in your brows. Numbing cream is continually applied throughout the procedure for added comfort. Although you might feel the contact of the “etching” onto the skin, it has been likened to the sensation of the tip of a tweezer being dragged across the skin. Some clients experience a sensation of wanting to sneeze, however your artist appreciates that this is a normal reaction and will be very experienced In maneuvering to accommodate this reaction.

FOLLOW UP TOUCH UP APPOINTMENT​​ (WITHIN 4-6 WEEKS)

The procedure is only complete after the first touch-up appointment to achieve optimal results. This touch-up appointment is complimentary and should be performed between 4-6 weeks after your initial visit. Important! The touch-up appointment is crucial to achieve optimal results - do not skip this step!

PRE CARE

We prefer that you don't have newly plucked or waxed brows when coming in, so that we can see where your natural brows grow, that way we can shape your brows from scratch. So, the fuller your brows are at your microblading appointment, the better, as we'll have more to work with.

-  HEALING  - 

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING HEALING PROCESS

During healing (first 10 days) your eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures. 

 

After your Microblading procedure your brows go through several stages of healing. It is crucial that you follow all steps and recommendations provided to you.

The intensity of the pigment will settle within a few days and after the 6th-9th day you will see what your brows will end up looking like. Be patient - great things come to those who wait.​ The colour will appear very rich for 48 hours immediately after the treatment then begin to fade away for the days to follow. In some cases, clients have experienced up to 60% of the colour fading out of the skin in the first week

 

We recommend you do not get the area wet for 10 days and your artist will guide you through a 10 day post-care treatment plan depending on your skin type.

 

You are unable to use any oils, active ingredients, rich moisturizers or toners on the skin for 7 days. Makeup can be used as normal but must not come into contact on the brows and surrounding areas. We recommend cleaning the skin or removing makeup with a damp face cloth or disposable facial wipes and opting for a very mild moisturizing “lotion” not cream. Remove eye makeup in a downward direction and do not scrub or wash the brows for 7 days.

AFTER CARE:

We"ll provide you a free After Care Kit to take home and go over all the details of your after care on the day of your appointment. It is absolutely crucial that you follow precisely the Post-Care instructions to achieve the full results of the Microblading procedure. If directions are not followed there is a chance that your procedure results won't heal or last as intended.

  • Before Caring for your eyebrows wash your hands before touching them.

  • First 3 days Apply a thin layer of Bacitracin morning, mid-day and evening.

  • Day 4-10 apply 100% Aloe Vera 2 times a day.

  • Do not wet your brows for 10 days.

  • Before bathing or washing your face, apply a layer of Bacitracin on your brows to prevent from wetting. After shower gently remove Bacitracin using Cotton Swabs or pat with a clean tissue. paper.

  • DO NOT use a towel on the brow area. If you need to dry your brows allow to air dry or pat dry the brow area using a clean tissue.   

  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. This will disrupt the healing process. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss! 

  • Avoid heavy sweating for 1 week - workout, hot yoga, spinning class, running etc. (pigment can be expelled through your pores when sweating and compromise the healed result)

  • Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 3 weeks.

  • NO makeup or skincare products is to be used on your brow area for 2 weeks.

  • NO facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks. 

  • Do not tint. Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyper pigmentation and scarring. After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, use SPF/sunblock when going out in the sun to avoid fading of the pigment. 

  • Make sure you are using a clean pillow. Try avoiding sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.

  • Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first 10 days. 

  • Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion around the brow area once healed. 

-  PROTECT YOUR MICROBLADING INVESTMENT   -

Caring for Your New Healed Microblading Eyebrows

 

Following these recommendations will help keep the integrity and provide the longevity of your new set brows.

 

• Once the area has healed completely, use SPF/sunblock when going out in the sun to avoid fading of the pigment. Applying a sunscreen to the microbladed area may help prevent fading. Like similar cosmetic treatments — such as eyebrow tattooing — microblading is semi-permanent but will fade. Fading may occur at a faster rate than brow tattooing due to the smaller amount of pigment used and depth of microblding placement into the skin.

• Avoid creams that contain acids or ingredients that will lighten or exfoliate the microblading area.

 

• Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels and Microderms around the brow area once healed.

NOTE: We recommend getting your brows touch up at least once a year. Two years after your initial procedure, you’ll most likely have to repeat the procedure in its entirety.

RETOUCHES

 

Retouch is recommended every 12-18 months to keep the brow strokes looking defined, rather than a “wash” of blurred colour. The blurring will occur due to exposure to the elements and products use. Oilier skin types have been known to require a 6-9 month refresh time frame as the pigment will fade at a much faster rate. 

YOUR NEW BROWS!

Your regular brow maintenance of tweezing, threading, waxing and/or tinting may continue as normal once your new brows have healed (after 2 weeks). Healed results will vary with each individual client depending on skin type and other factors. But most importantly - your results depend on how well you cared for your new brows during the initial two weeks of healing. Detailed post care instructions and how to best care for your new brows will be provided to you after your visit us.
