Frequently Asked Questions
What is Microblading?
Microblading is the artistic technique of tattooing individual hair strokes with a handheld tool called a microblade. Unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists hand draw each hair to blend in with the existing brow.
How long does microblading last?
Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 2 years for most people. Those with oily skin tend to fade faster and have shorter lasting retention. Some people with very oily skin will only have results for 6-9 months. Dry and non-porous skin has the best retention and healed results - may last up to 2 years.
Does microblading work on all skin tones and skin types?
No. Microblading works best for dry to normal skin types that are not heavily textured. If you have excessively oily skin or any Keloid disorder, we do not recommend microblading. Oily skin types can get microblading but must understand that retention is shorter and more touch ups are required. Nano brows or combination brows are recommended for oily skin types that want a hairstroke tattoo.
Who is ineligible for microblading?
Microblading is not recommended for those with excessively oily skin, large pores, or very textured skin. We also do not provide microblading for people: under 18 years old, pregnant or nursing, if you have diabetes, glaucoma, skin diseases such as Shingles, psoriasis or eczema on the area of treatment, allergies to makeup, Keloid disorder, HIV/Hepatitis, skin cancer, hemophilia, or if you're taking skin medications like ro-accutaine and steroids. Medical contraindications are in place to protect your health and safety.
Can I come in for a consultation?
Consultations are part of the initial appointment. We can also do a digital consultation via email. If you are adamant about doing an in person consult before booking, please email us and we can try to accommodate.
Does it hurt?
Most clients report little or no pain! We use a topical anesthetic before and during the procedure to numb the affected area.

Click on the “booking” tab.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
In the week before your appointment, we recommend avoiding blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol or using retinol creams. Please see our information tab for a full list of contraindications.
How long does it take to heal?
It takes about 30 days to completely heal, in which time you may experience mild scabbing and flaking. Most clients report that their scabs were gone by end of week 2.
When should I get a touch up?
We strongly suggest booking a perfection session within 6-10 weeks of your initial procedure. Once you heal from that session, your brows will be set for about one year. People with very oily skin tend to fade faster. A great way to decide when to get a touch-up is when you notice yourself filling in the brows more due to fading.
Can I get microblading while pregnant?
No. Please DO NOT book if you are pregnant or nursing!
Can I get permanent makeup if I have Juvederm injections/fillers?
We recommend getting permanent makeup first and waiting at least one month prior to getting injectables, or ask your filler provider for clearance.
