What is Microblading?
Microblading, also referred to as semi-permanent makeup, is the manual process of implanting color pigment in the upper layers of skin by means of tiny sterile needles to produce the appearance of hair strokes. This procedure last anywhere from 8 months to 2 years.
Does Microblading Hurt?
I use a highly effective, topical anesthetic cream for numbing before and during your procedure, to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable.
What are the Pigments made of?
The pigments used in cosmetic tattooing come in a variety of colors specially formulated with iron oxide as the ingredient safe for skin. We do not use pigments made from organic ingredients as they have a high risk of carrying bacteria and causing allergic reactions.
Will Microblading work for me?
If you have any of the following skin conditions, Microblading will likely not work well for you:
∙Excessive sebum(oily skin)
∙Moles in the procedure area
∙Facial psoriasis or eczema
∙Very dry skin
Also, if you are iron deficient or Anemic, the pigment will fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
How many treatments are needed?
Generally, two treatments are usually needed within 4-6 weeks apart.

How will I look immediately after? What is the healing process?
Your semi permanent makeup will appear darker and more intense than expected for the first few days. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. Redness and swelling is minimal.
What should I do after the procedure?
You will be provided with aftercare instructions. These must be followed to ensure the procedure area heal properly.
Can I have Microblading done when I’m pregnant or nursing?
As a precaution, we do not perform on pregnant or nursing women.
