Frequently Asked Questions

Prior to your microblading procedure, clients are advised of the following:

  • Avoid alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen, caffine 24-48 hours prior to appointment (may thin your blood).

  • If you have had previous permanent makeup done please contact me prior to scheduling at 303-408-1589.

  • Do not take fish oils or vitamin E 48 hours prior (natural blood thinners).

  • Avoid tanning 2 weeks prior or have a current sunburn. This will help me assess your natural skin tone.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks prior. 

  •  Avoid working out day of appoinment. 

  • Please feel free to come in with your brow makeup on so I can see what you prefer for your daily look. 

After your procedure, clients must follw these instructions:

  • Wipe brows off once every hour using the wipes provided in after care kit. 

  • Apply aftercare onitment (rice grain amount) to each brow Morning, afternoon and night for the first 7-10 days. Gently wipe away old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up prior to new application. Lightly blot dry with a tissue. Using a new q-tip, re-apply aftercare onitment to brows.

  •  Do not over apply onitment as it can lead to poor retention.

  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 7 days. When showering, make sure to avoid eyebrow area. When washing your face, make sure to avoid your brows and clean around them. 

  • Avoid working out for 7 days following your appointment. Light exercise is okay. You want to avoid sweating. If you have minimal sweating you must clean the tattoed area with lukewarm water as soon as you are done exercising. the salt in sweat will fade the pigment very quickly and give poor results.

  • Do not put make up on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. It is a healing wound, using makeup on the microbladed area may cause infections. 

  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals abd will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. 

  • Do not go swimming, tanning, or into saunas for at least 14 days. 

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after. 

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a specialized technique of eyebrow tattowing that creates realistic looking hair strokes, resulting in natural looking eyebrows. Microblading is applied to the skin with a hand held instrument containing small very fine, micro needles that deposit pigment into the epidermis. 

Is Microblading permanent?

Microblading is considered semi-permanent because the pigments used are engineered to fade over time. Depending on your age, skin type, and lifestyle, your microblading results can last between 1-3 years before fading. We recommend yearly touch-ups to maintain the look of your beautiful, full brows. 

Does Microblading hurt?

Microblading is designed to be a gentle procedure, however you may still feel some discomfort. During the course of the procedure, I will apply topical numbing that reduce pain and minimize redness and swelling. The exact pain level experienced varies on the individual. If you have any concerns about pain, please let me know during your consult.
