What is Microblading?
Ditch Your Pencil!
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup, where individual hair strokes are tattooed onto your brows. Although it is considered a tattoo, the pigment WILL fade over time. Touch ups are recommended once a year to keep the color and shape looking fresh and crisp! A touch up is required 4-8 weeks after the initial session, and is considered the “perfecting” session. No brow is complete until the touch up is done! Microblading is the most natural option for those that want more definition and shape, but a “shaded” brow can be done to give them a more filled in look!

After the 48 hours I recommend applying a small amount of the ointment I give you twice a day. You MUST stay out of the sun, sauna, water, no exessive working out for at least 10 days. Avoid chlorine, exfoliation creams, and sun exposure; they may cause your color to fade.
