Frequently Asked Questions
Microblading is a semi-permanent make-up technique which uses a manual pen that inserts pigment into the upper layers of the skin. This technique creates realistic hair-like strokes that can fill, restore, and shape your ideal brow.
Is Microblading Right For Me?
Microblading is perfect for those looking to reconstruct, define, or fill in their brows. It can be used to embellish, or even create a brow that looks natural without the harsh look often associated with tattooed make-up.

How Long Does The Service Take?
The service will typically be completed within 2 to 2.5 hours.
Why Do I Need a Touch-Up Session?
Semi-permanent make-up is a two step process. You can expect up to 70% color loss within the first 4-6 weeks. The touch-up session is essential for this reason, and also to perfect your ideal brows. The touch-up session typically lasts 1.5 hours and will be with your original technician.
What If I Wait To Do My Touch-Up Session Past 4-5 Weeks?
Semi-permanent Touch-Ups included in the standard pricing must be done within the 4-5 week time period to ensure proper maintenance. Delays at 7-10 weeks start at $200, and past 10 weeks is subject to full price. The deposit of $150 is required on delayed touch-up appointments.
We start the procedure by applying a topical numbing cream that minimizes discomfort, and use a numbing agent throughout the service. Some clients may experience slight discomfort, but the overall procedure is relatively painless.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Clients usually retain pigment 12-18 months after the first touch up. Clients with oily skin may experience faster fading (6-9 months) than those with normal or dry skin.
