WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a semi permanent, superficial tattoo that is done by a process of implanting color pigment beneath the surface of the skin with a row of micro sterile, disposable needles that form a blade which will produce the appearance of hair where there isn't any or add more to enhance and create fullness where hair already exists. This is done by Haley with a manual hand tool, not a machine.
DOES MICROBLADING HURT?
Topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Please note you will be more sensitive on your menstrual cycle.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The treatment is considered semi-permanent and will fade over time and may need a touch-up every 6-12 months. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including (sun exposure), chemical peels (glycolic, lactic, etc.) come into contact with microbladed areas. Please note that final results can not be guaranteed as each skintype will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates.
Touch ups are needed for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring 2 visits. The initial procedure followed by a touch up procedure 30 days later. Previously tattooed eyebrows may require one or two additional appointments and rarely achieve the same results to those who have no previous tattoo work because of the existing scar tissue and color under the skin, even if it isn't visible.
WHAT WILL AFFECT MY NEW BROWS?
Sun exposure: The sun fades the pigment faster so sun block & hats should be your new best friends! (Besides your beautiful new brows)
The regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds.

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY PROCEDURE?
If possible please come to your appointment with your brows filled in the way you do them daily so we can get a general feel of how you'll be comfortable with your microblading result. If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 7 days after the procedure. Avoid prescription blood thinners for 24 hours prior to the appointment. This also includes Vitamin E, Aspirin and Alcohol.
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTER?
Beautiful :) A lot of people think they will leave red and swollen but microblading doesn't usually cause swelling since its less invasive than a tattoo. You may feel your new brows look darker and bigger than expected for the first few days. This will gradually lighten by 30-40% and shrink slightly in size during the complete healing process (30 days).
