Initial Appointment For the first appointment, the entire procedure should take between 3 hours, but there is always an additional hour if needed. The duration of the appointment is only an estimate and varies for each client. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid scheduling any plans a couple hours following the appointment, to prevent the artist from having to rush.



Touchup Appointment

The 8 week follow-up appointment in most cases, is a minor touchup and takes between 1.5-2 hours depending on what the client requires. An additonal hour is added if needed. As well, it is recommended to keep your schedule free of any commitments or plans post appointment, to avoid the artist having to rush.


These procedures (Microblading, Ombre/Powder Brow, Microshading) are considered

semi-permanent, as the pigments are implanted into the superficial layer of the skin, not like the traditional body tattoos.


Therefore, the brows will naturally fade overtime and clients will only require annual touchups (between 12-24 months) to maintain their brow shape and colour.



What causes brows to fade?


Sun Exposure - over time the UV rays can cause fading. It is important to apply an SPF of 50 on your eyebrows, when directly in the sun.


Facial Products - Retinol, Brightening Serums (Vitamin C and E), AHA's (Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Glycholic Acid, Salicylic Acid) and Exfoliants.


These products increase cell turnover rate and will shorten the life of your cosmetic tattoo, by fading. Therefore, avoid applying these products on or around your eyebrows. Your face in fine, just avoid your brow area.


As well, oily skin and some medical conditions.

Microblading is a cutting edge, semi-permanent procedure, designed to enhance the eyebrows, creating the illusion of a perfectly shaped, full brow. Performed by a certified and licensed microblading artist. It is done by depositing pigment, by gently etching individual hair-like strokes into the epidermis (skin), using a one time use, disposable hand tool with a very fine blade, made up of micro-needles. Each stroke mimics your natural hair and the pattern the hair grows, creating the most realistic, natural looking eyebrow.


Best for those individuals with tight skin, small pores and normal to dry skin.

Microblading is not recommended for individuals with large pores around the brow area or those that have oily skin.


Ombre/Power Brows is a semi-permanent procedure, which is a shading technique of the eyebrows. It is done using a permanent makeup machine and one time use, disposable, single needle, that gently implants tiny dots of pigment into the skin. The result is a soft, powder effect of the brow. Depending on the clients desired look, a powder brow can be made as soft and natural or as bold and makeup like, as the client wishes.


Minimal trauma to the skin.

Less touch ups required.

Great for all skin types.
