FAQ

What is Microblading?
It is a semi-permanent procedure using dual hand-held microblades which implants pigment into your epidermis to create hair-like strokes on your eyebrows. This is done to improve and/or change the existing shape to more desirable brows exactly as you wish after consulting with me.  At iBrowempress I only use high-quality pigment as well as stainless steel, sterile, disposable microblades resulting in a natural, 3D appearance.
What makes the PhiBrows method different?
The PhiBrows artist draws in hyper-realistic eyebrow shapes calculated according to facial morphology and the golden proportion ratio. Phibrows artists only use the finest tools and pigments available specially created for Phibrows artists.
What is Ombré shading?
A technique that uses a handheld device with needles to deposit pigments into the brows giving eyebrows the powdery effect defined makeup look. This technique is suitable for clients that want defined, ready to go eyebrows or clients that have oily skin.
Why Microblading?
To achieve perfectly-shaped, fuller, natural-looking, semi-permanent eyebrows!
Is Microblading right for me?

Microblading is great for women who want fuller, more defined eyebrows, but don’t have the patience (or skills) to draw them in with pencils and brushes every morning. However, there are certain conditions that could prevent you from undergoing this transformative procedure. Ask your physician first if any of the following apply to you.

  • You have diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, or an autoimmune disorder.
  • You’re regularly taking medication that thins the blood.
  • You have circulatory or blood disorders.
  • You have a skin disease that affects the area in question.
  • If you’re sick with cold or flu.
  • If you have a heart condition.
  • You’ve recently had an organ transplant.
Are you eligable?
Definitely NOT if:

Unfortunately persons with HIV, HepA, HepB, Herpes, people with visible Keloid scars, Pregnant or nursing women, and minors cannot have the procedure.

 

Maybe if:

Patients with Seborrhoeic dermatitis must be treated prior to procedure.

Patients with Moles on eyebrows require further evaluation for candidacy (call to discuss).

 

YES you can!

Anyone that dislike their existing eyebrow shape (e.g. thin or crooked eyebrows, surprise eyebrows, droop eyebrows, tired eyebrows, poorly spaced eyebrows, etc.)

We also offer microblading to clients who are diabetic or those attending chemotherapy, however they must provide a consent letter from their physician.

Choose your technician wisely

Microblading is closer to a medical procedure than a spa treatment, technicians who perform it need to be licensed cosmetic tattoo specialists.

In other words, the person who waxes your brows doesn’t necessarily have the knowledge required to microblade (no matter what they might promise you).

Although it doesn’t occur frequently, infection is the #1 complication eyebrow microblading patients suffer. This is especially the case in places where safety and sterility standards are ignored. As with any cosmetic procedure, make sure the facility you choose is licensed and professional. Don’t just chase the best prices. You as a client also play a big part in achieving best result by following aftercare instructions carefully.

Your First Microblading Consultation

It’s a consultation…not a commitment! Let’s discuss in person how microblading can not only dramatically improve your look, but how it can actually save you time and money. During our consultation, I will discuss the different microblading options that best fit your individual shape, style, and colors. I will explain in detail the pre/post treatment process, the stages of healing, future touch-up needs, and any questions or concerns you may have.

What to know before the procedure?

Here are some things you should know before making an appointment:

  • Abrasive treatments such as peelings, fruit acids, chemical peels, laser treatments and similar should be avoided a month before the treatment
  • One month before the treatment, botox or fillers should not be used
  • Using Accutane within 1 year or Retinol, Retin-A within 1-3 months also cause poor color retention. Please stop using 1 month prior to your appointment for best result
  • Having a cold or flu on a day of an appointment is not recommend
  • Don’t book your appointment during your menstrual cycle
  • If Pregnant or nursing, you cannot get the procedure done 
  • ​Those with Keloid scars are not eligable
  • HIV and Herpes cannot get this done due to healing might be complicated
  • If taking blood thinner medication, fish oil or multivitamins, client should stop taking 10 days prior to your appointment

*For Best results:
Skin must be in good quality…the skin must not be in the regeneration process, and no signs of skin damage such as eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, pimples or any other issues should be present. damage will negatively affect the healing process and color retention.

Does it hurt?
Every person is different and unique. You will feel a little bit of discomfort and numbing cream is always an option.
How long is the procedure?
The entire procedure takes about 3 hours.
How much does it cost?

Depending on where you look, you can find Microblading treatment for as low as $200. With that said, you need to find out the skills and the training that the particular artist has. As well as checking out before/after & healed result photos of the artist’s work. Like the saying “you get what you pay for”. So please do your research!

My initial consultation fee is $50 which is not required to book.

The first initial session for Microblading with iBrowEmpress is $525, 1st Touch-up is included.

If you have existing eyebrow tattoos, we highly recommend a consultation/send a picture of your eyebrows or microblading will not be performed at your appointment. Your deposit is none-refundable.

If the price is causing you anxiety…relax, don’t let it! Think of all of the benefits…the cost of makeup; the time spent applying makeup; the cost and time of removing makeup. Finally, we have partnered with CareCredit, and can offer no cost financing options.

What to expect during & after your Microblading session?

Your new semi-permanent tattoo will go through several phases during the healing process. The pigment which is the highest standard pigment (PhiBrows microblading pigments) will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin and has not settle in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the q-tip. It is excess pigment or lymph that is naturally exiting your skin. Once the healing of the skin starts to take place, you may look like you have dry skin by your brows. This is only superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. The color will fade a great deal during this period of time. This is normal and there is no need to be alarmed. Once healed, always apply sunscreen on your brows when exposed to the sun. Sweat and Sun exposure may cause the color of the pigment to fade quicker. For how long the pigment will be retained mostly depends on the skin oiliness. The oilier the skin the shorter pigment retention time. On average, an expected time for new refreshment/touch-up is 10 to 12 months.

What's Next?

Microblading requires at least one touch up appointment (included in the initial price).

In some cases, clients may require additional touch ups for the desired look. Please see the price page for the cost of the additional treatments.

​*Notice: If you have had any previous semi/permanent eyebrow tattoo performed elsewhere, you are required to provide pictures of your eyebrows so we can determine if we can effectively treat you.

*Failure to do so you may have to forfeit your deposit if we can not perform the procedure on the day booked

The success of the treatment will be depend on:
  1. Skin quality

None of these factors are under the Artist’s control, thus providing any guarantee for the treatment is not possible in permanent makeup field.
