This is the first step; you will describe or show how you usually draw your brows, and/or bring in photos of your desired brow shape. The consultation is to help your artist better understand how you like your eyebrows to look.

What should I Avoid Doing After My Combo Brows Treatment?
To take care of your eyebrows properly after the procedure, avoid touching, scratching, picking, peeling your eyebrows, as well as sun exposure, makeup, moisturizer, lotion, sunscreen, or exfoliation. Don’t engage in activities that induce sweating, avoid strong winds, alcohol, hot baths, showers, saunas, jacuzzis, and swimming.
My Eyebrows are Too Dark!
The first few weeks, your eyebrows will go through the healing period. After this is over, and you’ve followed proper aftercare, your eyebrows will become lighter in color, and swelling, scabs, will disappear / fall off. It’s completely normal for the color to be much darker right after the procedure. During the healing process, the color will fade slightly, revealing softer and more natural brows. If the color is fading too much, you can bring up any problems you have during the touchup session.
Is it Normal for my Eyebrows to be Scabbing?
Yes! Scabbing is part of you skin’s healing process. After a week or so, most, if not all, of the scabs should have fallen off, and you should notice a lighter brow and color. Scabbing happens because the microblading process involves making shallow cuts into your skin. The cuts are not deep enough to result in a permanent tattoo, but it does trigger an immune system response from your body.
Can I Pick my Scabs?
No! Under no circumstances should you pick at your scabs. This can cause the pigment to fall out, and you run the risk of losing all the progress from your first treatment. You must let your scabs fall off naturally. If you have a problem with your scabs, you may gently wash your eyebrows under warm water.
Preserving the Look
We offer different touch-up prices to accommodate for different needs. You may have your touch-up appointments frequently or rarely, depending on how much your brows have faded over time.
Are touchups necessary?
Combo brows is a two-step process. The first touch-up, which happens 4-8 weeks after the first procedure, is crucial to retaining your shape and color. Your artist will fix any fading and re-define your eyebrows. Although you can opt for 6 month or 2 year touch-ups, annual touch-ups are highly recommended.
How Long Does it Take For Ombre Brows to Fade?
The speed at which your brows fade depends on many factors. Oily skin, certain medications and medical conditions can cause the pigment to fade at different rates. Everyone’s facial features are unique, and more or less frequent touchups may be necessary to maintain the perfected look, depending on your features. It may take anywhere from one to three years for your brow color to fade.
