You can finally have the brows of your dreams! Richelle uses a technique called microblading in order to perfect and sculpt brows tailored to your face shape and bone structure. 

Microblading

Price: $450

This is split into two payments. $350 is due at your initial appointment, and $100 is due at your touch-up procedure.

All touch-up appointments are scheduled the day of the initial procedure and are scheduled 6-8 weeks from the initial procedure date.

Color maintenance appointments are recommended for eyebrows. Without these color boosters, your brows will eventually fade completely. This happens because of the way our bodies metabolize the inks used. Much like body tattoos need color boosts to keep them fresh after time, so do your tattooed cosmetics.

Yearly boosters are optional and depend on the client. Everyone's body is different in how it retains the brow's color. Lifestyle can also affect the time needed between color boosters. 

 
 

BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE

it is very important to follow these instructions for safety and sanitation protocols, and to ensure the best possible results from your procedure.

Please wait 4-6 weeks PRIOR for any fillers, botox, facial peels, laser treatments, microdermabrasions, or other intense skin treatments to have permanent makeup procedures done. Tattooing on skin that has recently undergone these procedures can damage the skin in the procedure area and affect the healing process.

Please begin hydrating well as long as possible before your procedure, preferably drinking several cups of water daily for at least two weeks. Your body needs to be hydrated to keep your skin in good condition for your procedure. Skin that is too dry, damaged, flaking, irritated, or too blemished may be turned away the day of your procedure, so it is important that you keep your skin hydrated and clean for your appointment.

Please refrain from strong sun exposure for at least two weeks PRIOR to your procedure, as Richelle cannot tattoo on sunburnt skin. If you show up to your appointment with sunburnt or recently tanned skin, you will be turned away that day, forfeit the deposit and be required to schedule a new procedure when your skin has healed.

Please refrain from using any Retinol/anti-aging products or brow growth serums in the brow area for at least FOUR weeks before your procedure. This includes products like Rodan and Fields, Mary Kay Timewise, Latisse, etc, OR any product that increases the cell turnover rate. These products change the thickness and texture of the skin, making it more difficult to tattoo and less likely to retain the pigment.

Please refrain from drinking any alcoholic beverages for 48 hours before your procedure. This will prevent you from having excess bleeding during your procedure, and help with the beginning of the healing process.

Please refrain from taking medications like Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Advil, etc, for 48 hours before your procedure if possible. These medications increase blood flow, which can make you bleed more during your procedure. You will be able to take up to 400 mg of Ibuprofen (2-200mg tablets) before bed the evening after your procedure was performed to help with swelling or discomfort.

Please do not drink coffee/caffeinated beverages the morning/day of your procedure. Caffeine increases your heart rate, which will increase blood flow during your procedure. This can increase swelling and pain during and after your procedure.

Wear comfortable clothing, and avoid applying makeup to the brow area if possible. You may bring your makeup to apply after your procedure, but you will not be able to apply any makeup to your brow for several days after your microblading.

Please refer to the Policies and Procedures page in reference to payments, rescheduling, cancellations, and no-show fees before booking your procedure.

Brow Aftercare

You will get full aftercare instructions to care for your new brows when you book online and at your appointment in the studio.

WHAT TO EXPECT

After your eyebrow procedure, you will be swollen. Some clients will swell minimally, and some will swell more. Everyone heals differently. This can cause the area(s) to appear uneven, red, itchy, and irritated when healing. The area(s) will also appear much darker and thicker than the final result. You can expect eyebrows to fade anywhere from 10%-50%. The fading typically happens within 3-30 days after the first procedure.

WHAT TO DO

The grapeseed oil will be provided for you at your appointment; however, you will need to purchase the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser for yourself. This is available at Wal-Mart, Target, and other major retailers.

·         You may take one or two Ibuprofen (200mg) for swelling and discomfort before bed the night of your procedure if needed, though it is recommended you try to wait 24 hours.

·         Starting the morning after your procedure, you need to cleanse your eyebrows morning and night for 7 days using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Pat dry with a paper towel and apply one drop of grapeseed oil (a very thin layer) to the brows in the morning and evening for the remaining 7 days to keep your brows moist.

·         Please let your brows exfoliate naturally. You may experience crusting, scabbing, or flaking. Do not pick or rub. Abstaining from these actions will prevent any unnecessary infections or additional pigment loss.

·         If the area is still dry and flaky after the 7 days, you can continue the grapeseed oil as needed until your brows are healed. Do not let your brows dry out or scab. It is okay to wash your brows after the first two weeks, but avoid scrubbing them.

WHAT NOT TO DO

Do not drink alcohol for at least 48 HOURS after your procedure. Your body is healing and needs to be at full strength - alcohol will impede the healing process.

Do not submerge your tattoo under water or get it very wet for at least TWO WEEKS after your procedure. This includes swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms, bathtubs, ocean/lake, etc. Submersion in water will leech the pigment from the procedure area, causing faster fading, patchy discoloration, or total rejection of the pigment.

Avoid strong sun/ UV exposure - no tanning beds or natural tanning for at least THIRTY DAYS after your procedure. This will damage the skin and cause irregular healing/premature fading.

Avoid sweating into the procedure area for at least TWO WEEKS, and avoid extreme sweating at all if possible - activities like extreme cardio/strength training, hot yoga, etc. are more likely to affect the healing process. The sweat will leech the pigment from your skin, causing faster fading, patchy discoloration, or total rejection of the pigment.

No retinol/anti-aging products or brow/lash growth serums within two inches of the procedure area(s) for at least THIRTY DAYS after the procedure. This includes Rodan & Fields products, Latisse serum, Natural treatments such as castor/vitamin E oils, etc. These products increase the cell turnover rate, causing the procedure area to fade very quickly and even patchy in color.

If you do not follow the aftercare instructions, you will ruin the results of your procedure, and there will not be a “free touch up” if this happens.

WHAT NEXT?

It is standard procedure in our office to see our clients back 6-8 weeks after their original procedure for their first touch-up. This is necessary to fine-tune the treated area.

After the first touch up, it is recommended to schedule a yearly color maintenance session to maintain the color. The length of time between color boosters will depend on your body and lifestyle; most clients get a color booster every 1 to 2 years.

You are 100% responsible for maintaining your appointments. Confirmation calls, text, or emails are not guaranteed.
