During the first hour, one of our Brow Bar Microblade Artist will draw the perfect shape customized completely to the client with a removable pencil. After the shape is drawn, the artist will consult with the client to approve and will remove the hairs surrounding the shape with a painless razor. Before the microblading process begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the brow area to minimize discomfort. While the anesthetic is numbing, the artist will color match pigment customized to the client’s brows and will go over any questions the client has from the release form and aftercare handout. After 15-20 minutes the brows will be completely numb and the procedure will begin.
The microblading process will last 30-45 minutes. During this time, a second topical anesthetic liquid is applied 2-4 times, keeping the brows completely numb and the procedure painless. At the end of the procedure, the artist will show the client their new brows and make any adjustments and additions necessary.
At the end of the appointment, a follow up “touchup” appointment will be set 4-6 weeks following the first appointment.
AFTER THE APPOINTMENT
Your new set of Brows will be ready immediately after the process, there is no downtime!
After microblading, the color will appear darker than it will eventually be because the pigment takes around seven days to fully penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. On day 5-7, a natural exfoliation takes place and the crusted top layer of skin will peel off leaving a softer, lighter color. The result is a natural looking enhancement. As the treated area is settling down, slight itching may occur. Itching is a good indication of healing.
At your 4-6 week touchup appointment, we will go over the brow once more, darkening the color and evening out the tones throughout the brow.
Microblading is low maintenance. After healing, you can rub, shower, swim, workout and wake up with perfect brows. No special care is required, except for a brief touch-up once every 1-2 years.

How does it work?
Before you begin your treatment it will start with a discussion of the shape and color of your preference. The unique bone structure and contours of your face will play a significant part in the look and shape of your brows. After you have approved the shape of your choice, color is carefully selected to match your natural skin tone and hair color. Microblading otherwise known as the hair simulation technique is a technique we use for creating the most natural brows possible. The hair stroke technique mimics your own eyebrow hairs thus creating a feathering effect. This innovative technique is far more natural looking than a solid fill
Does it Hurt?
Microblading feels very similar to threading or waxing of the brows except we use a topical anesthetics. There’s nothing to worry about. We strive to have a top of the line numbing process.
How Long is the Healing Process?
7 days for 90% of our clients and 7-14 days for 10% of our clients. Immediately following your treatment the pigment will appear darker and than how it will actually heal. You may feel as though the pigment looks darker than you expected. Don’t worry. After a few days, the surface colour naturally exfoliates to leave a softer color.
How Long does Microblading Last?
8 – 16 months. You may become accustomed to your new makeup and want more. You may want to freshen up your new makeup every couple of months or once a year. The length of time you Microblading lasts is dependent on several factors including skin type, sun exposure and lifestyle.
Do Permanent Cosmetics Looks Natural?
