MICROBLADING IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
MICROBLADING is a very natural option of enhancing eyebrows that delivers semi-permanent results.
Unlike the sometimes Sharpie-esque effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of an embroidery of strokes that look just like real hairs.
Microblading is ideal for those who want to fully reconstruct, or define, or cover gaps, or fill-in over-tweezed brows; or for those who just want to add a slight arch.
During the microblading process, a special microblading pen/tool is used to draw on individual strokes one by one.
It is a meticulous process that can take up to an hour to complete both brows. Results will vary, but can last for up 18 months before beginning to fade.
What to expect at your appointment: The first hour we’re drawing the shape in with removable pencil. That’s the longest part and the most important step. During this time, the best customized shape and colour for every client is chosen. Once all details are approved by client, the "blading" begins. Once procedure is complete, you will receive and after-care kit, along with a booking for a touch-up 6 weeks later.
Abstain from alcohol consumption 24 hours prior to procedure.
Abstain from taking Ibuprofen or Aspirin 24 hours prior to procedure.
Abstain from waxing of eyebrow area 48 hours prior to procedure.

NO use of AHA products and Retinoids 2 weeks prior to procedure.
