I started working in the beauty and cosmetic industry three years ago as a side business. After separating from my corporate banking job I decided to follow my true passion for making women feel confident, beautiful and empowered. Microblading is just one way I have been able to fulfill my passion while also channeling my creativity! I am certified through Everlasting Brows and Licensed in the State of Minnesota.

Does it hurt?
A: You are pre-numbed and numbed throughout the duration of your appointment. Mild discomfort if any at all.
How do you know what shape the brow should be?
A: A technique is used to map, shape and find symmetry to your face shape, bone structure. The technique also includes any existing brow hair that is there. Your brows are not shaved off.
Will I be red and Swollen afterwards?
A: The redness if very mild in most cases. You may have a slight red halo around the brow area the first few hours after. They will feel irritated much like that of a sun burn the first few days. If you feel that they are swollen it is okay to ice them, though swelling is not too common.
How long does Microblading last?
A: This answer varies, it really depends on skin type, age and lifestyle. On average 1-2 years before needing a touchup is the norm.
-Gently blot or wipe brows with a damp napkin or paper towel every 1-2 hours post treatment before washing at night.
-Night one, cleanse the brow area using mild anti bacterial soap using q tips to clean the area, rinse and pat dry.
-Avoid face wash and skin care items in the brow area.
-Repeat washing steps above 2 x a day for the first 5 days. After 5 days wash your face like normal, be gentle in the brow area.
-Whoa! Too dark! The hairlike strokes are little wounds. Every wound deepens in color as it heals. These wounds happen to have pigment that also deepen in color as they begin to heal.
-Don't sweat it- they will fade out a good 20%-40% as they begin to heal under the surface of your skin.
-Flakes and Scabs, eeew!
-Just like a tattoo your skin will want to scab and heal itself. You may get a little flakey, dry skin like. It only lasts for a few days. Your brows will be worth it.
-My brows are gone!!?
-Pigment will begin to heal under the surface of your skin. You may look a little patchy at this point. Feel free to put a little makeup on over the brows at this point. (makeup should not be applied to the brow area any sooner than 8 days post treatment)
-My brows are coming back, yay!
-Pigment will resurface, but coloring may be a little light yet. True color will appear around 4 weeks post treatment.
-Flakes are all gone by this point
-Made it to week 6, brows might be a little patchy and some areas shrunk. No worries! That is what a touchup is for.
-You would have already booked your touchup at your initial appointment, typically 6-12 weeks post initial appointment.
-If you need to reschedule please note that a 48 hour notice is required to reschedule any and all appointments.
