Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate? Who is a good candidate?

The simple answer is, anyone that wants to have full, beautiful brows all day, every day! That would include busy parents or business people who don’t have much time to apply brow makeup, active people who don’t want to worry about sweating off makeup while working out or swimming, or any person who struggles with getting that perfect shape that the celebrities and YouTube makeup artists always seem to have. Other clients include those suffering from scarring, Trichotillomania, Alopecia and Cancer, or other diseases and disorders that have led to natural hair loss. Let Brow & Blade do all the work for you!

Are you certified?

Yes. I am a certified permanent makeup artist and insured. I completed a hands-on apprenticeship and received certification from a permanent makeup and tattoo artist that has perfected only the best Microblading techniques and training, as well as other types of eyebrow permanent makeup and tattoo removal.

My studio is licensed to tattoo by the Texas Board of Health. I received extensive training and certification in Blood Borne Pathogens as deemed necessary for tattoo artists by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. No matter who you work with, it is crucial that you choose not only a certified Microblading artist, but also a licensed one to ensure your health is protected.

 

How do I book an appointment? What about a 4-6 week touch up?

Click on BOOK NOW and select available dates for services. It will be necessary to review and affirm that you have read all necessary information and documents prior to booking.

​It is very important to book your touch up appointment as soon as you book your initial appointment. This is to ensure that you get a date and time that works for you before my schedule books up. The touch up appointment should be 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment.

 


Do I need to shave my hair?

No. We will shape your eyebrows as needed with threading and/or tweezing and choose a color pigment that blends seamlessly with your natural brows.

 


How is this different from a traditional eyebrow tattoo?

The most common type of traditional eyebrow tattoos involves the use of a tattoo gun and a block style brow, which leaves the client with a dark outlined eyebrow and no depth. These often fade to really unflattering colors. Microblading by Brow & Blade leaves you with crisp, thin lines that look identical to real hair. Careful selection of pigment is chosen to give depth and shape so that the natural brows and Microblading strokes blend seamlessly.

 


Does it hurt?

Every client is different, and pain tolerance varies by client. Most of my clients describe the pain level as minimal and find tweezing and threading more uncomfortable. At Brow & Blade, I use the best topical lidocaine cream available to minimize discomfort. I will take my time getting you nice and numb for about 45 minutes. That being said, this is still a tattoo. You will feel some discomfort. Based on my personal experience, I would describe the feeling as a slight burning, astringent like sensation. Very tolerable and worth it!

 


How long does this take?

The process takes approximately three (3) hours from the moment you walk in the door to completion of your beautiful new brows. Roughly the first hour is spent designing your new brows and numbing the area. There is no downtime! Occasionally, some clients will have some slight redness and swelling around the area which is very normal and will subside within a couple hours. Most clients go on about their normal day when they leave their appointment.

 


What is the healing process?

 

Some swelling and tenderness after the procedure is normal and may last a day or so, depending on the client. Your new brows will appear DARKER, WIDER, AND SHARPER than the way they will heal. This is especially true for days 2-5. This is harder for some clients than others. Clients who rarely wear makeup may find that they don't like how their brows look on these days because they are too intense. That's normal. The pigment is sitting on top of the skin and has not yet settled into your face. As your skin heals over the tattoo, your brows will lighten and soften. This process takes about 10 days or so on average. Your brows will be dry and may scab a bit – it’s important that you’re prepared to go through this process BEFORE booking! It’s important to follow all after care instructions and to attend the required follow up appointment to make the finishing touches to your new brows! Your healing is only about 50% in my control. Once you leave it's up to you to be diligent about following the instructions you're given to get the best result! And no matter how great they look, it's important to come for your touch up appointment to get the final result.

How long does it last?

This will vary by client. If aftercare instructions are followed diligently, your new brows will last approximately 12-18 months. For some people, their brows will last even longer. Certain factors such as sun exposure, getting chemical peels, oily skin type, etc. will affect whether your brows will last on the higher or lower end of the expected 12-18 months. There is no way for us to predict how long your brows will last or how they will heal with this procedure, since so much of it depends on skin type and lifestyle. Also, some clients really prefer a fresh, bright look. Those clients opt to come in for Color Boosts every 12 months instead of waiting for their brows to completely fade.

 


Is it possible that I might not retain pigment?

Yes, this can happen. Some people have highly effective immune systems that reject the pigment, some have super oily skin, and some just have highly affected skin healing. It is rare, but it is important that all clients understand this is a possibility and in most cases there is no way for us to know if this will take place prior to the work being done. Occasionally, I will recommend a third appointment to further touch the brows up if the client is retaining some pigment after the first touch up, however anything beyond that would likely be too much for the skin and the client would likely not be a candidate for further Microblading. I cannot guarantee if this will be the case for any client as it’s not possible to predict.​

 


Will it look natural?

Yes. The technique used at Brow & Blade creates realistic, simulated hair strokes that look just like REAL HAIR! It’s important you choose the right artist that can give you this realistic 3D look. Your brows can be as big and bold or as soft and subtle as you like!
