FAQ

YOU CANNOT RECEIVE COSMETIC TATTOOING IF YOU:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding

  • Have used Accutane within 1 year

  • Have trichotillomania or hemophilia 

  • Are on blood thinning medications or antibiotics

  • Are uncontrolled diabetic or high blood pressure

  • Are currently undergoing chemotherapy

  • must be off chemotherapy or radiation for 6 months

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT:

  • Do not take blood thinners 24 hours before or after your appointment (ibuprofen, fish oil)

  • Do not consume alcohol 24 hours before your appointment 

  • Do not consume any coffee or caffeine the day of your appointment (this will increase bleeding and effect your healed results)

  • If you currently fill in your brow please come with them filled in. Any makeup on the brows and forehead will be cleaned off.

  • Try to let your brows grow out as much as possible prior to your appointment

  • If you tint your brows please do so at least 72 hours prior to your appointment

  • Microblading cannot be done if there are blemishes within the brow (they need to heal before we can proceed)

  • No Botox, fillers, or chemical peels 3 weeks before or 3 weeks after microblading

WHAT ARE YOUR FORMS OF PAYMENT:

  • I take cash or card  (NO CHECKS)

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST:

  • The pigment is designed to fade over time. It is recommended to get touchups every 1-2 years. 

  • Factors such as skin type, lifestyle, age, metabolism, medications, and pigment color affect the longevity of the tattoo. The sun and some kinds of lighting (tanning beds) can affect the rate at which these pigments are broken down. These will also cause greying of the pigment color.

  • *Please note that final results vary and cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of skin as it heals. 

  • For lasting results, please apply a SPF 30 on your brows while outside.

WHAT WILL MAKE MY BROWS FADE SOONER?

  • Oily skin: increased oil production can cause shorter retention. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE.

  • Smoking: smokers may notice that their microblading will fade faster.

  • Sun exposure: increased sun exposure will cause premature fading. Please use an SPF 30 on your brows.

  • Age and metabolism: the faster your metabolism the faster pigment will fade.

  • Bleeding during the procedure: excessive bleeding will greatly affect how your body retains pigment. while this is not entirely your fault, please refrain from alcohol, blood thinners, caffeine, and exercising 24 hours prior to your appointment.

IS IT PAINFUL/DO YOU NUMB?

  • Topical 5% lidocaine is used prior to the procedure. Once the skin is broken open a secondary numbing is used to keep the skin numb.

  • Pain tolerance varies from client to client. Having the procedure during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity. 

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

  • The procedure takes 2 hours. This includes paperwork, mapping out the shape, numbing and microblading. The 6-12 week touchup takes 1 hour.

I HAVE HAD MY BROWS DONE BEOFRE, CAN YOU FIX THEM OR TOUCH THEM UP?

  • You must stop in so I can check them out in person so we can discuss your options. You may stop in anytime during my business hours. Call or text to make sure I am there!

DO I NEED A CONSULTATION BEFORE BOOKING MY APPOINTMENT?

  • I don't do consults unless you've previously had work done. Please feel free to text, facebook, instagram message me if you have any questions.
