How to Make the Most of Your Cosmetic Brow Procedure: Screening Yourself for Contraindications

This blog is written for those considering eyebrow microblading and/or microshading, to screen yourself for contraindications that makes this service inadvisable. And to also eliminate an in-person consultation. If you do not have any of the contraindications listed in this blog, and are able to completely follow your after-care instructions, you are ready to book!

If you have had previous eyebrow tattooing done by someone other than us, you are required to book the correction consultation so we can see you in person and evaluate what the following steps will be, if any, before you book your service online. The consultation fee will be applied to the service, if we move forward.

This blog is required reading before going to the "Request an Appointment" button to reserve your service through our online booking system. We require microblading and microshading appointments to be booked online because they are a large time slot and we ask that you consent to our cancellation policy upon booking. Additionally, we do not have a receptionist so we have designed this for ease of use for you and us, and you can find a time slot that works with your schedule and ours.

Under no circumstance, will microblading or microshading be done above the top of the brow bone (on the forehead) OR into the temples, above or past the curvature and end of your brow bone. Also, if you are even slightly pink from a sunburn, tanning bed, or have extremely red skin from any skin conditions, your service will not be performed and a 50% service fee will be charged for that time slot.

So there are a few things to consider before making your microblading appointment that can effect how well your skin holds the pigment and how well the color will heal in true to tone. Therefor there is a time-frame you will want to wait if using any of these medications listed below, any of these topical skin treatments, and a few miscellaneous things you want to avoid/cannot do before and after microblading and microshading for the best results (every one of these items WILL effect your healed color if you have a listed contraindication or unable to follow pre and post care guidelines):


-Pregnant or Breast Feeding

-bake in a tanning bed or sun
