Need a little help achieving fuller, more defined brows? Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure where a special eyebrow pen is used to tattoo strokes that mimic the appearance of eyebrow hair. Unlike an eyebrow pencil that you wipe off at night before you go to sleep, or worse, that accidentally fades throughout the day, microbladed eyebrows stay put, giving you shape that can last from one to three years, depending on certain factors.
What to Know About Microblading
What is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery, is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and semi-permanent.
Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
Who is ineligible for Microblading services?
Candidates who are seeking permanent makeup and who may be contraindicated (meaning those that I cannot service) are:
Anyone under 18 years of age
People with diabetes
Pregnant and lactating women
People with glaucoma and people who are taking blood thinning medicines (e.g., Aspirin).
People with skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, and undiagnosed rashes or blisters on the area that is to be treated
People with allergies to makeup or colors
Those with easily triggered post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
Active skin cancer in the area to be treated
Have healing disorders, uncontrolled high blood pressure or had Mitral Valve Disorder.
Those on any skin medication such as Accutaine or steroids which thin and make the skin more sensitive
Anyone with allergic reactions to topical anesthetics
How should I prepare for my appointment?
The week before your appointment, we recommend avoiding blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol or using retinol creams. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen, aspirin and fish oil supplements for at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.
Be prepared to lie very still for a long period of time. Many patients bring headphones to listen to music during their appointment.
Wear comfortable clothing. Many of our patients like to bring a sweater to help keep them relaxed.
Avoid waxing, threading or tweezing your eyebrows 5 days prior to your appointment.
Patients often find it helpful to bring in pictures of their ideal brow shape or color as it helps them to communicate their brow goals.
IT IS RECOMMENDED TO STAY OUT OF THE SUN 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT AND 2 WEEKS AFTER. PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

Microblading Terms & Policies
Microblading appointments are only scheduled for Tuesdays until further notice. Appointments can only be scheduled by filling out the contact form at the bottom of this page.
CONSULTATIONS AND APPOINTMENTS
All appointments begin with a detailed consultation. The non-refundable consultation fee of $100.00 also acts as your appointment deposit and will go towards the full price of your microblading service. The $100.00 consultation fee is non-refundable and non-transferable whether you show up for the consultation or whether you cancel within 24 hours of its scheduled time.
During your consultation, Yulisa will work with you to discuss your goals, shape of your existing brows, and any problem areas you wish to address. After your consultation, and before your microblading service commences, the balance of your microblading service (the full cost –$100.00 deposit) must be paid in full. The remaining balance should be paid in CASH or with Zelle.
During the consultation, it will be determined whether you are an appropriate candidate for microblading or not. There is a possibility that you will not be eligible for receiving the service. Save your time and money and read the eligibility requirements in the “What to Know” section above!

Clients that cancel within 5 days of their appointment time will be automatically charged a $50.00 cancellation fee to the credit/debit card used to pay their non-refundable deposit.
Appointments cancelled 24 hours prior will result in an automatically charge of 50% of the full service cost to the credit/debit card used to pay their non-refundable deposit.

Clients who do not show up for their scheduled reservation will be automatically charged 50% of the full service cost to the credit/debit card used to pay their non-refundable deposit.
Please plan to arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled reservation. Because appointments are scheduled back-to-back, there is only a 15 minute grace period for each appointment. We cannot guarantee that you will be seen if you are more than 15 minutes late. Please understand that these treatments are detailed and need ample time to get the best results. We cannot rush or cut corners.
Touch-up sessions are calculated 6 to 7 weeks from the date of the last treatment. It is recommended that touch-up sessions be reserved during your microblading appointment.
