microblading prep

The Microblading procedure is a two-step process.

For best results, the client is required to return for at least one touch up visit service session, which is included in the initial service cost. This treatment service is scheduled immediately after the first treatment and should take place 6-8 weeks after initial procedure.


To ensure best results, make sure your health is in good condition. Please eat well prior to procedure. NO waxing, threading, or tweezing for 72 hours before the procedure, as the pores of the skin can remain open and pigment can enter those areas.

ONE WEEK BEFORE the following supplements should be stopped: 86, Vitamin E, Omega 3, Gingko Biloba, and St. John's Wort. These supplements may contribute to thinning of the blood and may affect the efficiency of the anesthetic. You may resume taking your vitamins 72 hours following procedure.

24 HOURS BEFORE AND AFTER your Microblading appointment: avoid alcohol, aspirin, and any other related blood thinners (unless instructed by your physician).

ON THE DAY OF your appointment: please avoid caffeine and exercise.

Pigments used during the Microblading procedure are not implanted as deep into the skin as a traditional tattoo or even micropigmentation with an electric permanent makeup device. This allows for healed results to consist of very fine, thin, and crisp hair like strokes, however, results do not last as long as traditional tattoo methods.

A color boost is required usually between 12- 18 months. A touch-up may be required at 12 months or sooner for oily skinned clients, those who tan often, or those whose brow area is exposed to certain chemicals (facial peels, chlorine, anti-aging products, etc.). Pigment retention varies depending on skin type, age, aftercare, immune system, medications, and certain chemicals.

We only use the best quality of pigments that heal true to color. ALL materials used during each and every procedure (including pre-sterilized blades) are 100% disposable. We strictly adhere to all the AAM, Board of Health, and SPCP guidelines for proper infection control practices and follow ALL state guidelines and regulations.
