Frequently Asked Questions
This page is dedicated to some of the most common questions asked about microblading and other forms of permanent makeup.
Please read the page in its entirety before booking your appointment to ensure you are a good candidate and are fully prepared before your appointment.
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup where a small blade is used to create thin hair-like strokes throughout a person’s brows, giving the illusion of a full, natural brow. It is a semi-permanent procedure, with results lasting 1-3 years.
Microblading is meant to be a natural enhancement, and to create the appearance of full, beautiful brows. It looks most natural on clients who have full brows hair and are wanting to perfect their shape and add natural fullness.
This procedure is ideal for those who prefer a supernatural look. If you are hoping to ditch the brow makeup entirely and fill your brows in daily, you are better suited for a combination or ombre brow. Microblading heals best on young, normal/dry skin. Those with combination/oily are not candidates for microblading and are better suited for a combination or ombre brows.
We don’t recommend Microblading for oily skin clients, as this technique suits only dry/normal skin types.
Any person who would like to save more time getting ready in the mornings. Microblading will give you that perfect everyday natural look you need.
Definitely NOT! Please do not tweeze, thread, wax or modify your eyebrows in any way two weeks before the appointment
The soreness of procedure differs from person to person individually ‘cause every person has got different level of sensitivity. However we use most advanced and effective antiseptics and the perfect result is achieved during the procedure.It might be a bit uncomfortable at first but we will numb you once the skin is open. You will barely feel it after. Most clients even fall asleep! Your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity.
First session takes about 2-3 hour with the shaping and drawing. Touch ups take 1-2 hours.
Yes, After the eyebrow shaping by using golden ratio, and your confirmation, we start the procedure.
Any person who is highly allergic to several products should have a patch test done before the procedure to ensure there won’t be any complications.
If you are using Retinol/Retin-A products or Chemical Peels, you should stop using for at least two weeks before.
If you have history of keloids you should avoid Microblading.
If you suffer from auto-immune deficiencies that might affect the healing you should avoid the procedure.
Pregnant or nursing women should wait until they are back to normal.
Chemotherapy patients will need to check with their physician and provide a doctor’s note.
People with conditions that cause them to bleed very easily (this impacts results).
It is completely normal for your brows to appear really dark for the first few days, don’t worry this is only temporarily. Around day 5-7 they will start peeling off. Please refrain from picking at the brows. Doing so will result in loss of pigment in those areas and can cause scarring. By day 8-10 they might look really light, this is also normal. You will see the full results in around 4-6 weeks. Pigment fades 30-40% when fully healed.
There is no problem working or being out in public.
Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear. Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.
Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after the recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, clients may lose original hair strokes which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s the reason why most clients need a touchup after 4-6 weeks.
Cosmetic tattoo treatments are considered semi-permanent and will not wash off. However, We working only with upper layer of skin (epidermis), so pigment removes itself out of skin during 1.5-3 years period.
Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), sun exposure without SPF, excessive exfoliation to the area and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas will fade it faster.
Please note that final results CAN NOT be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. You will be re-evaluated on how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and any necessary changes will be made. Touch-ups are normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring at least 2 visits. Touch up session is recommended 4-8 weeks after your initial session where we can assess your pigment retention and perfect your permanent make up. Previously tattooed areas will generally always require additional appointments.
Every person heals differently. The skin heals about 6-8 days. After healing period (6-8 days) intensity of color fades about 30-40% however the pigment which is installed to the skin may be visible for up to 25-30 days that’s why final result is seen after 1 month approx.
Everyone’s skin type is different. Often even with proper care, clients may lose original hair strokes which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal.
We recommend to perform 1st touch up 4 weeks after 1st procedure if its needed. In most cases only one correction is needed however in some cases 2- 3 touch ups may be needed to achieve the perfect result (it depends much of what type of skin client has got and how well the process of pigment reclamation proceeds). Renewal of eyebrows is recommended to perform after one year of initial procedure.
Touch ups are not included in the initial pricing and they vary depending on how long has passed by after your initial session.
Combination Brow technique combines microblading with shading techniques. This technique is perfect, if you have uneven brow growth. The technician adds strokes and places tiny, pin-like dots over the brow area to fill in thin spots. This technique is for all skin types and gives you more defines and filled brow look.
This is the most popular technique in Miami. It combines advanced microblading strokes on the body of the brow with shading on the tail of the brows to add extra definition.
Ombre brows known as a powder brow, it gives you a semi-permanent filled eyebrow shading. This technique does not have hair strokes, it is made up entirely of machine shading. The Ombre eyebrows have a soft powdered body and light fluffy diffused edges, which creates the ultimate brow shape and design. This eyebrow style looks very unique and attractive. It is ideal for all skin types. This technique lasts longer than microblading, create less trauma and fades the bests over time.
Oily Skin: Increased oil production can cause hair strokes to blur and fade very quickly, or not stick at all. If you have combination or oily skin, you are a candidate for a combination or ombre brows, but not for microblading.
Sun Exposure: Increased exposure to the sun will cause premature fading.
Excessive Bleeding: During your procedure will greatly affect how your body retains pigment. Pinpoint bleeding throughout the procedure is normal, but excessive bleeding causes pigment to fade very quickly and heal ashy. While bleeding is not entirely in our control, it is important that you follow before care instructions to help minimize bleeding. This includes avoiding blood thinning medications and alcohol 24 hours before your procedure.
It is recommended who has had their brows done previously by another artist please reach and send us picture before making an appointment. We redo another artist’s work if it is at least 80-90 percent faded and session will be considered as new. If you need correction work which tattooed at different salon, please send us picture before booking. Correction price may change depends on current brows you have.
First of all, permanent makeup should be done first and only after 1,5 months fillers. Opinion, that fillers should be done first is wrong!
Of Course they can. After the treatment this type of client should drink some pills which the artist recommends to avoid the cold sore.
Actually no, we are following the natural shape of lips and not reshaping them, unless it has an actual asymmetrical shape.
Clients should prepare and take off fake lashes before the eyeliner treatment.

Sun tanning, Sunbeds, light (Laser) Therapy, Chemical peels, Fruit acids, Microdermabrasion, Creams that contain regeneration factors or glycolic acid near the forehead.
You should always avoid laser treatments over treated area during the healing period (Fraxel Laser, IPL) because they can destroy the pigment and cause inflammation.
Faster fading out of pigment can happen if the clients use antibiotics or hormonal therapy. Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds.
UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading. Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment.
Always protect your eyebrows from the sun by using sun protection cream (not only during the first 7 days).
After microblading procedure complete, Artist gently cleanse your eyebrows without stretching the skin. In this way, the excess lymph is removed in order to prevent formation of scabs, which are otherwise devastating when it comes to pigment. Having cleansed the skin, after care ointment will be applied and client will repeat the ointment 3-4 times in a day.
Day One: Avoid touching your brows a lot, and don’t allow anybody to touch them. Once you get home after the procedure (or about an hour after) you’ll rinse with warm water to remove the lymph from the skin and then reapply the ointment that your artist had applied. Repeat these two to three times during the first day. You can apply the ointment with a cotton swab and only use a very thin layer. If you apply too much you will not the area breath.
Day Two-Seven: Rinsing is not needed because lymph will not be coming out any longer. However, applying the cream is necessary 3-4 times daily as directed by your artist.
Eyebrows must not get wet while washing the face or having shower. In clients with extremely oily skin, the after the first day (rinsing and applying cream) is recommended only on the first day, while in the following days the client should not apply any ointment or cream. Due to the fact that each change in the skin structure (forming of the light fiber tissues) prevents pigment retention in the future periods, it is very important that the skin is well healed. In order to achieve that it is recommended to use anti-scar gel 7 days after the treatment.
