WILL MICROBLADING WORK WELL FOR ME?


If you have very OILY or POROUS skin, microblading will NOT work well for you. The over-production of oil can cause the hair-strokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Other permanent makeup options are more appropriate such as Nano Hair Strokes or Powder Brow (I will be offering these August  2020.)
 

If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment may fade sooner.


If you are iron deficient or anemic, your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.

If you have previous microblading / eyebrow tattooing, please send 3 full face photos in good lighting to gracerambeck@gmail.com for approval prior to booking.


WHAT FACTORS WILL AFFECT MY COSMETIC TATTOO?

Bleeding during the procedure: Any bleeding during the treatment will reduce the amount of pigment retained in the skin.

Caffeine, alcohol, and any medications that act as blood-thinners should NOT be taken prior to your appointment.


Sun exposure: The sun will soften the look of your tattoo, so sunblock should be used daily (once healed).


Aftercare Instructions: Failure to follow the aftercare diligently during the first 10 days of healing can contribute to less than desirable results. For example: sweating or hot showers during healing can effect the appearance of the hairstrokes when fully healed.

 

The regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds in the skin.


Iron Deficiency: If you suffer from anemia or low iron this could affect the way your body reacts to the pigment. The pigment used contains iron oxide which can result in the hairstrokes to fade or change in hue due to your body absorbing the iron.


WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY EYEBROW PROCEDURE?

Do NOT drink any CAFFEINE or ALCOHOL the night before or day of your appointment. This is very important and will directly affect your healed results.

Do NOT take blood thinners 72 hours prior to treatment. This includes: Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplements.


If you regularly get your eyebrows shaped, waxed, threaded or tinted, please do so at least 3 days before your appointment.

Do not work out or sweat heavily the day of the procedure. You also need to avoid sweating 7-10 days after treatment.

If you plan to go on vacation/spend a lot of time in the sun, it is recommended you plan your trip at least 2 weeks after the procedure. It is recommended that you avoid tanning of the face 1 week prior to your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit. Your skin exfoliates from a burn and will lead to poorly healed results.

AHA/BHA's and RETINOL: (lactic, glycolic, citric, retinoic and tartaric acids) or any products for tone-correcting, anti-aging, and exfoliating will discolor your microblading. Discontinue these 1-2 weeks prior depending on strength of product.

Individuals with oily skin

Those with very oily or porous skin are ineligible for microblading. Other forms of cosmetic tattoo such as powder or nano hair strokes are more appropriate. (I will be offering these services beginning summer 2020). Those with less oily or combination skin, may consider microblading, but more frequent touch ups may be necessary at additional cost.

CANCELLATION POLICY / DEPOSIT

Although we see beautiful results on 99% of clients, healed results can not be guaranteed. A small percentage of individuals do not hold pigment well due to many factors including medications, skin health, and lifestyle. This can not be predicted. When booking, you accept that possibility.

The microblading process takes multiple hours, and the deposit is used to reserve this time. Rescheduling must be made more than 48 hours before your appointment. Any changes to your appointment within 48 hours will result in the forfeit of the deposit and future appointments will require another deposit of $100. All cancellations without rescheduling will result in the forfeit of deposit. Clients who "NO SHOW" forfeit their deposit and will be required to pay service in full prior to re-booking.

 

Children and animals are not allowed at the appointment for sanitary reasons.

 

Please be on time so that your technician will have ample time for your appointment and as a courtesy to the next client. Arriving 15 minutes or later can result in the cancellation of your appointment and forfeit of your deposit.

By booking an appointment, you are consenting that you have read and understand this information.
