WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup also known as cosmetic tattooing, eyebrow embroidery, or dermal implantation. It is the art of creating small, hairlike strokes to fill in sparse or thinning eyebrows to simulate natural hair using a specific tattooing technique.
IS IT A TATOO?
Yes. Anytime a pigment is placed into the skin it is defined as a tattoo. However, there are differences between microblading and body art tattooing. Colors formulated for cosmetic tattooing, especially for eyebrows, are intended to be softer to mimic topical makeup and a natural result. Body art tattoos use carbon-based pigments due to their longevity and are not formulated for the complexity of facial skin and aging. Body art pigments tend to be bright and vivid which would not render a natural and muted tone necessary for cosmetic tattooing.
IS IT PERMANENT?
Microblading is a form a tattooing which is by definition permanent. However, given the nature of the area and pigments used it is common for microblading to fade over time. Everyone’s body is different and it is impossible to determine how much a person’s cosmetic tattoo will fade over time. Color can fade due to a variety of different reasons, including skin type, environmental factors, iron deficiencies, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits such as smoking. Therefore, it is recommended to come back for a color boost every 1-2 years to enhance your existing tattoo. *To get the best results possible, be sure to follow all pre and post care instructions carefully.
DOES IT HURT?
Topical anesthetics are used during procedures to increase comfort. Most clients are quite comfortable during the procedure, however pain tolerance varies from person to person.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICROBLADING?
You cannot get microblading if you are any of the following:
- Pregnant or nursing
- Using Accutane currently or within the past year
- Under 18 years old
- Have been tanning or sunburnt within the past 30 days.
- Are prone to keloids
If you have extremely oily skin, microblading may NOT work well for you but we are happy to do it for you as long as you have a realistic expectation. The constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdered than you would expect. Usually a shaded or “ombre” brow will be more suitable for oily skin types, which still yields beautiful results.
If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment will fade sooner.
If you are iron deficient or Anemic, your pigment will fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
Unhealthy compromised skin due to health issues, medications and over use of (anti aging,acne skincare, ect..) are all factors in the outcome. To keep your hair strokes looking good, a refresher appointment is suggested every 6 months to 2 years. Results vary with each client.
Additional touch-up appointments will be charged depending on how much work is to be done.

-DESCRIBE THE PROCESS/HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
A full consultation is carried out at the time of your appointment to understand your skin suitability and realistic expectations of microblading. All colors and shapes are customized to each person. We will discuss color, shape, and expectations. From there, we will draw on the brow shape first to make sure this is YOUR desired shape. This part of the process can be a bit time consuming as I take my time ensuring proper shape and symmetry. Once we have decided on the correct shape we will apply a topical anesthetic cream to start your numbing process so you will be comfortable during the procedure. During this time we will go over after care and any questions you may have. I will also mix a customized color appropriate for your skin type and eyebrows. The color will always be approved by you before any markings are made. Additional anesthetic will be continually applied throughout the process to increase comfort. The initial microblading session typically lasts about 2 to 3 hours. Touch up appointments generally take 1 to 1.5 hours.
ARE YOU CERTIFIED?
Microblading requires a minimum of 100 hours of training. I proudly completely my full certification course at the Advanced Permanent Cosmetics Academy in Illinois in August of 2017. I also hold a license for cosmetic tattooing in the state of Wisconsin, a Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP) certification and am fully insured.
