Microblading is a hot trend right now. There are tons of YouTube videos about good and bad experiences, so I get a ton of questions about it all the time. The following questions are what I hear the most. If you have a question to add that you don't see here, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment!
Please note: Your brows will appear 40% bolder for the first week until they heal. When you shed this bold layer, they will end up with fine hair-like lines. It may seem spotty for a day or two during this shedding process, and it may appear as if you have lost all pigment. You haven’t! Patchy spots will begin to come back as you heal, and we will address any spots in the Perfecting Session where your skin may not have taken the pigment well.
Get an idea of what you want your final result to look like. Bring some photos of the brows you love and want to emulate as well as a photo of what your brows look like when you do your own makeup. Print or save them on your smartphone.
If you have not had a great experience with Microblading or permanent makeup (or even traditional tattoo), there are ways to successfully remove the pigment/ink. The best way is to schedule a removal session with me. Please schedule a consultation HERE so we can assess the method of removal and/or correction that will be best for you.
If you have had history of one or more cold sores, fever blisters, or mouth ulcers, a procedure is likely to reactivate the problem. It is recommended to take any prescription or over-the counter medications that your doctor has recommended/prescribed for at least 5 days prior to your procedure and 5 days after. The majority of the population caries the viruses responsible for these outbreaks, and this procedure will probably cause a sore to surface if you do not prepare.
Micro-needling is a safe natural, holistic alternative for resurfacing the skin using microneedles without an aggressive machine, which is safe for all skin types. When combined with a high quality skincare regimen, this treatment provides optimal results to improve wrinkles, large pores, scars, stretch marks, sun damage, and overall skin appearance by stimulating new collagen and elastin formation in the skin.

When starting a skincare regimen, it is very important to consult with a professional to see what your unique skincare needs are. For those who are starting on a Microneedling plan with me, here is what I recommend for use at home if you do not have regular acne breakouts or sensitive skin:
A lash lift and tint is kind of like permanent makeup for your lashes. It doesn't thicken you lashes like mascara, but it darkens them and gives them a nice natural curl so they appear darker and longer. We begin with cleaning your lashes to get any excess residue, but please remove any makeup ahead of time to avoid being charged a removal fee. After cleansing, we treat your lashes with a five step process:
