Microblading Procedure Steps

Microblading is a 2 step process, usually 6-8 weeks apart. It is important to complete both the initial procedure and touch up.

Step 1

The initial procedure takes approximately 2.5 hours.

During this time, a consultation is done where we discuss your desired brow look, choose a color tone and draw the initial outline of the procedure area for your approval.

Though our faces are NOT perfectly symmetrical (bone structure and muscles are not symmetrical), we do our very best to create as much symmetry as possible!


Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and semi-permanent pigment is applied with a disposable microblading hand tool.

This procedure uses a manual hand tool and not a machine. 

Step 2

The second stage of the treatment is a TOUCH-UP appointment.

The touch up that takes approximately 1-2 hours and is included in your service.

Touch ups are done no earlier than 5 weeks of your initial procedure and no later than 10 weeks.

If you do not schedule your touchup within 10 weeks, you will be required to pay a touch up fee outlined in our touchup schedule. 

It is IMPERATIVE you complete the touch up treatment.

Without it, the results will not be optimal.

Color will fade significantly within 4 weeks as the skin heals, peels and fades.

The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes, color tones and finishes the process

**Occasionally a third touch up (4-6 weeks later) is necessary for certain clients where the pigment does not take as well to the skin.(this is not including in original price)** 

How long can I expect it to last? 

The pigment used in microblading is semi-permanent and can last between 1-3 years. The pigment will begin to fade within 12 months (some earlier, some later, depends on your skin). In order to keep your brows looking fresh, a touch up is recommended every 12 months to 24 months maximum. After 2 years, full price for microblading will apply. See pricing for full details.

For clients that choose a softer look and lighter color shade initially or those who did not follow the after care instructions properly may require more frequent touch ups. 

Factors that will cause your microbladed brow tattoo fade faster: 

  • Iron deficiency
    • Sun exposure
    • Exfoliants 
  • Strong immune systems 
  • Exposure to salt water
    • Smoking
