The microblading appointment takes about 2-3 hours in total, though the majority of this time is spent prepping for your procedure.

│ STEP 1 │

First we will discuss your “brow wish list” in terms of shape and color. YOU are an active participant in this process. I welcome you to share any photos that showcase what you want, and be candid about what you don’t want. I will make recommendations on brow design based on your face shape, age, skin texture, hair color, and undertone, but ultimately I am here to make YOUR dream brows a reality.

Next, I will have you fill out new-client forms and pose for “before” pictures. Then I will apply numbing cream that will sit on your brows for 20 minutes. You can use this time to snack, grab a beverage, or take a nap; meanwhile, I’ll be setting up my sterile workstation.

│ STEP 3 │

Once all of the above prep work is finished, we can get started! I will begin by mapping out your new brows. “Mapping” means that I use the measurements of your own face to outline brows that suite your features. You will review the outline and make any tweaks to the shape and size before microblading begins. Once the brow shape is approved by you, I start the first pass of microblading. After the first pass is complete, I will apply a pigment mask to help your skin soak up the color, and a second round of numbing cream. Then I will do another 2-3 passes to fill in any sparse areas; applying additional pigment masks between each pass.

│ STEP 4 │

Almost done! We’ll finish up by taking some “after” pictures and discuss your aftercare routine. Last but not least, we'll schedule you for a touch up session 6-8 weeks later.
