FAQs

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a technique used to implant pigment into the skin. A figure of needles are used to create a realistic looking eyebrow using the 'hairstroke' method. Each eyebrow is customized for the individual. I put each hairstroke in the brow one at a time until a full eyebrow is created. This is an advanced technique and should not be performed by beginners.

With the popularity of microblading rising daily, it is very important to me to educate the public. Microblading is considered a tattoo because it will not was off; however, if you were to never get a touch up, it would eventually fade to nothing. Color boosters are recommended and these vary on lifestyle, sun exposure, medications, etc.

Microblading is for any age and skin type, but some skin types require more maintenance than others. Oily skin can fade quicker than non-oily skin, prompting the need for a color booster. Sun exposure will fade the eyebrows over time. Retinols will fade or soften the look quicker.

Thinning, fading eyebrows are perfect for this procedure. Clients can achieve a full, natural looking eyebrow without the hassle of drawing them in every day.


What can I expect after my procedure?

All of our procedures have clearly defined aftercare instructions, which will be provided to you when you book online and at your appointment. We strongly encourage that you follow these instructions thoroughly to ensure your brows, eyeliner, or lips heal properly.

You can find a more detailed explanation of things to expect following the procedures on our aftercare pages for brows, eyeliner, and lips.


How long will it take to heal?

Everyone's bodies are different. Your healing process for each of our procedures will depend on how your body reacts. We will discuss this process at your procedure so that you are well aware of what to expect during your healing process.


Do I need to make an an appointment, or do you take walk-ins?

Richelle is  a leader in this field in our area. That being said, she works only by appointment and keeps a very full schedule year-round.  You can schedule your appointment on our Scheduling Page, and we recommend scheduling at least a week or two in advance. You can call, text, or Facebook message us with any questions!


I can't make my appointment. What do I do?

Please understand that when you forget or cancel your appointment without giving enough notice, we miss the opportunity to fill that appoint time and clients on our waiting list miss the opportunity to receive services.

All of our appointments are confirmed by text and email 5 days in advance because we know how easy it is to forget an appointment you booked last month. Since this time has been reserved especially for you, cancellations less than 48 hours in advance will result in a loss of your deposit, and a new deposit will be required for scheduling again.


Do all my future appointments on my permanent makeup need to be performed by Richelle?

If at any time you go to another technician after Richelle has done your original procedure/s, she will no longer perform any future services on you. Richelle is the only person that performs permanent makeup in our office and her schedule stays quite full. It is up to the client to maintain their current and future appointments.
