Microblading

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading is a form of a cosmetic tattooing using pigments. It is performed by using a manual (not a machine) disposable, handheld tool. This disposable tool is composed of very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade (called a microblade) to implant pigment into the skin, creating a hair-like stroke. 

 

Microblading is meant to simulate the client's natural eyebrows hairs and seamlessly blend it with the client existing brows to add colour and fullness resulting in a very natural look. 

Ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their own brows. The results are natural looking hair-like strokes that lasts 9 months to 2 years in the skin.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE 
FOR MICROBLADING?

Microblading is an ideal solution for clients who have patchy, thin, or uneven eyebrows and are looking for the most natural looking results.

 

However, not everyone is a candidate for microblading and there are different elements to consider such as skin condition and health.

 

Microblading is most suitable for clients with normal skin and small pores. Oil in the skin can cause the Microblading hair-stroke to expand and blur so the less oily the client skin is, the better the result would be. 

If the client has very oily skin, we would recommend Shading with a machine. 

CONSULTATION

A thirty minute consultation appointment is mandatory prior to booking a first application. If you have microblading or permanent makeup done by another artist, an in-person consultation is also mandatory. If you prefer your brows to be a certain shape, style or colour, please come with them filled in to this appointment.

Please note that consultation appointments are $50 plus taxes. If you decide at the time of your consultation to book an initial application, the $50 plus taxes will go towards your initial service cost.

 

The consultation appointment does consist of discussing what microblading is, the application process, healing stages and any questions you might have. If you are from out of town, then a consultation for a new set can be scheduled over the phone. Unfortunately, phone consultations aren't available to clients with previously done work by another artist(s) at this time.

MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT

 The 1st application appointment includes a recap of our initial consultation, numbing, brow outline and measurement, Microblading application and aftercare.

To achieve the best results, 2 applications are needed.

 

The procedure is 2.5 hours long. Please do not schedule another appointment directly after the service so your Artist does not feel rushed.

 

Everything will be explained step-by-step to ensure you understand the procedure and aftercare at the consultation and at the application appointment.

A touch up appointment is needed in 6 to 8 weeks after the initial application to complete the brows.

To cancel or reschedule, please provide us with at least 48 hours' notice. For more information about our Cancelation Policy, please scroll to the bottom of the page. 

 

This is a custom built brow and takes two visits to produce the best brows for you. Microblading can last from 9 month to 2 years depending on the skin type, pigment retention and following aftercare steps properly.

 

Colour Boost appointments are recommended between 12 months to 24 months to keep colour and strokes looking crisp, fresh and vibrant.

 

If you are a new client with previous Microblading or other Permanent Makeup, you will be required to book in for an in-person consultation prior to making a Microblading appointment.

PLANNING A HOT HOLIDAY OR VACATION?

Please be aware that your brows need to heal before jetting off on your holiday. Please plan your microblading appointment at least 2 weeks before your holiday.

 

Also to make sure that you wear SPF on your whole face including brows during your vacation because the sun does cause them to fade faster. When you return, please wait at least 2 weeks for your skin to accustom to our climate again before having a microblading application.

DAY OF APPOINTMENT:

Avoid alcohol

Avoid exercise after treatment.

Wash your hair in the morning as you will need to avoid the shower after treatment for the first day of healing. Baths are recommended.

Avoid wearing white

Please arrive 10 minutes before your treatment time.

Late arrival can lead to your treatment being postponed to avoid upsetting other clients who may be waiting for their appointments after yours. Please allow a solid 2 and a half hour window for your appointment.

This is not something that can be rushed.

POST CARE

A list of instructions and aftercare ointment/cream will be given the day of the appointment.

 

Following the proper aftercare after the treatment is of great importance. If aftercare is not followed, it can result in losing up to 80% of drawn strokes. 

Everyone's skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first application.

 

There is no downtime associated with this treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after.

 

It is important to understand that this is a two part process and a touch up application is needed to complete the brows. Please be patient.
