Microblading MUST READ: Care-Qualifiers & Expectations

What is Microblading? / Before & Aftercare

MICROBLADING:  is a type of 'tattooing" designed to recreated "natural" hair-like microstrokes into areas of the skin where sparse or missing natural hairs once were.  

This is done with the use of Organic & Inorganic Pigments by Li Pigments & sterile microneedles (termed "microblades").  

Full Microblading appointments can average 2-3 hours & "touch up sessions" run 45 mins - 1 hour, depending upon client.  Optimal results are top priority, however there is no guarantee as client skin-type, heavier bleeding & facial scars/asymmetry may alter outcome. 

Pigments, unlike "tattoo ink", are designed to soften in color & fade over time; requiring yearly touch-up sessions. Excessively oilier skin, those with certain medical conditions & on certain medicines, can effect the "retention" of Microblading, which may require additional touch-up sessions (listed below).   Microblading is NOT designed to replace Makeup in size, shape, position nor color.


 > Body Dysmorphic Disorder: " A mental illness involving obsessive focus on a perceived flaw in appearance"

 > Pregnant or nursing
> Diabetic
> Chemotherapy (1yr post)
> Viral infections and/or diseases
> Epilepsy
> Pacemaker or major heart problems
> Organ transplant
> Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
> Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
> Botox in the past 2 weeks​ 

> On blood thinners or medicines which may thin the blood (excessive bleeding will cause serious loss of microblading retention   

WHAT TO PREPARE FOR:  Protect your Brow Investment

 □ Do not get eyebrows wet:

During the first 10 DAYS after Microblading do NOT get eyebrows wet.  This is to allow the "scabbing" to form & "heal" both skin & microstrokes underneath.  Getting eyebrows wet while in "scabbing stage" will cause Microblading not to heal properly & addition sessions needed (at client expense).


□ No sweating:

During the first 10 DAYS after Microblacing clients must refrain from activities which may cause profuse sweating. This is to prevent the Pigment from being pushed out of the microstrokes (excessive fading/ruined Microblading) & also Pigment migrating underneath the skin to other areas of the brow/face.    

□ Scabbing / Peeling /Fading:

Click the "Find out more" button below to read more about this "roller coaster ride" of healing stages

Reality -vs- Expectations: Microblading

Microblading is NOT meant to replace Eyebrow Makeup in Shape, Size & Position:  


□ Shape, Size & Position of your new Microbladed brows will be determined based upon your expressed desires during the  "client consultation" (phone or in person), plus important  professional 'brow/face mapping "Predraw" prior to start of Microblading  

□  Clients desiring brow shapes & positions which are significantly outside natural or safe brow areas -or- a look which is professionally unable to achieve with Microblading (as a Permanent Cosmetic), will not be done.  However, a mutually decided shape, size (thickness) & position can be achieved



Microblading is not considered fully "healed" until week (4) after each microblading session.  

>Freshly completed Microblading will appear more intense, darker  & slightly larger (until minior skin swelling subsides).  However the hair-like "strokes" will heal much softer & fades more, depending on skin-type (as seen in picture of "healed strokes").

NUMBING: Before Microblading

5% Lidocaine with Epinephrine is used to numb clients at Spa Shal'vah.  After each client is precisely Brow Mapped (as featured in picture), clients are then numbed prior to the start of microblading.  

This numbing process is done by "tapping" the skin with micro-needles to break the skin for the Lidocaine to effectively numb clients.  The "tapping" process will be felt by clients & only takes about (35 seconds) per eyebrow. Once skin is "tapped" and lidocaine applied, a period of 15mins is allowed as waiting time for clients to properly numb.  Clients are normally very comfortable after this 15min wait with most not feeling the Microblading process. 

NOTE:  Clients on certain medications which prohibit the function of pain medicines -and- clients who normally have no response to normal over-the-counter pain meds, may feel more of Microblading. In no way does Spa Shal'vah guarantee 100% discomfort FREE microblading.  It is the client's responsibility to inform Spa Shal'ah of any Lidocaine allergies. 

Microblading Healing Stages: The "Roller coaster Ride"


The "Roller coaster ride"

□ Eyebrows will begin to SCAB over the first few days/week after Microblading & become much darker.  Afterwards they begin to peel - every skin type scabs/peels differently. This is a stage where many clients may "freak out", but all is normal. :)

□ Picking scabs will result in ruined eyebrow strokes & wasted client financial investment in Microblading.

□ As the scabs fall off the Microblading strokes will "fade" approximately 15-30% (depending upon skin type). 

*Note: melanin enriched (darker) skin tones often holds color more & with a "powder brow" healed look verses the crisp hair-like strokes. This is due to both the amount of melanin & oils in the skin.

□ Microblading is not considered fully "healed" until week (4) - until this time clients will go through the stages of scabbing, peeling, fading & pigment return to the surface of the skin (by week 3-4). The featured picture shows these stages. 

NOTE: During your scheduled second session "touch-up session", the micro-strokes which did not "take" into the brow skin, will be replenished during this session. 


Microblading: What to expect on Appointment day?

Spa Shal'vah: Quality care & Tranquility

In effort to shorten appointment times & maintain smooth flow of client schedule:

□ Clients are required bring a valid picture ID, plus Print, Complete & Bring the Client Consent forms to their appointment. This required paperwork is attached to the appointment email confirmation received at booking

□ After collection of Client Consent Forms, a photocopy of client valid ID is taken & a brief client "Intake Consultation" is done.  This Intake Consultation is to insure client has read & understood Microblading plus notate important client brow desire information


IMPORTANT:  On appointment day clients are required to arrive on-time without guest.  The Permanent Cosmetics Microblading room is kept exceptionally clean/sterile & guest/kids are NOT allowed in this area.  Guest may wait outside.  CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED AT APPOINTMENTS > Client appointment will be cancelled with forfeiture of paid deposits if children are brought to appointment. Additional deposit will be required to reschedule. 

Choosing: Round Brow Start ....


Looking closely at the featured picture, you will notice the beginning "bow" part of the eyebrow has micro-strokes which curve around verses being "square".  During the client Intake Consultation, clients are asked if a "Round Start" or "Square Start" is desired. 

NOTE: Clients who are "unsure" of which to choose, should pick the "Round Start", as it is an easier brow style to adjust to 

...OR... Choosing: Square Brow Start



Looking closely at the featured picture, you will notice the beginning "bow" part of the eyebrow has micro-strokes which are more STRAIGHT with a slight curve - giving the illusion of a more Square Start to the brow. 

During the client Intake Consultation, clients are asked if this Square Start of a Round Start is desired. 

NOTE: Clients who are "unsure" of which to choose should pick the Round Start as it is easier to adjust to

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions & Policies

What do I need to do prior to Microblading/Cosmetic Tattooing?

For Microblading:

□ Bring color pencil used to fill in your brows

□ Bring picture/video of your desired brows. A client "reality vs expectations" will be covered before beginning.

□ Clients may come with eyebrows drawn on how they normally like them as a reference - please note that each client is precisely brow/face mapped to ensure symmetry prior to starting

□ DO NOT wax, thread, tweeze, tint brows (1) week minimum before Microblading

NO! Refrain from Caffeine, Alcohol, Pain meds or anything which may thin the blood (Fish Oils, Protein Shakes, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Niacin) for 48hours prior to procedure.

Sun exposure can effect retention of healing Permanent Cosmetics. 

> Wear loose fitting hat / sunglasses 

> Sunblock (wait 4 weeks before putting on healing Microblading)

Is there "down time" / redness/ swelling?

No "down time". 

Clients may return to work same day if desired. However, there will be some minor swelling, redness/skin discoloration & client discomfort (tenderness) to the area immediately following procedure, which will subside within 24-48 hours
