Microshading or Ombre eyebrows, is a semi-permanent technique that gives the brows a 3D dimensional look adding more volume with a powdered effect, similar to the fill in brows makeup. The price for this type of brows is $100 more than Microblading’s price.
- If you have had a permanent eyebrow procedure already you are not a candidate for Microshading eyebrows, unless your permanent makeup has totally faded away or has been lasered off.
- Oily skin and skin with large pores are not good candidates because the strokes will appear as a solid color OR powdered looking. Clients with this type of skin will need more than one treatment to achieve the color and shape desired.
- Extremely sensitive skin, such as those with rosacea, are not candidates because they may not retain the pigment very well.
- In order to get your eyebrows done with Microshading your skin needs to be healthy. If you have skin blemishes, rashes, or irritation within your brow line, you should wait until your skin clears up.
- All fair skin types (natural blondes and redheads) will experience more fading, redness and swelling than darker skin types, and may require more treatment to achieve the color and shape desired.
- 30 days before your permanent makeup appointment, stop using Retin- A, Retinols, any exfoliation products, chemical peels (AHA’s) or acid treatments, laser and microdermabrasion treatment around the brow area.
- You must not have electrolysis in the brow area at least two weeks prior to your eyebrow procedure.
- Have your eyebrows done first and Botox later.
- If you have Botox already, wait 60 days to do your microshading or other microblading eyebrow procedure.
- You MUST BE completely off Accutane and similar products for 1 year.
- DO NOT wax, thread, tweeze, or shape your eyebrows at least 48 hours prior to your eyebrow procedure.
- It is recommended to take two Tylenol (pain killers) an hour before your appointment, they will help you to level down the sensitivity of your skin. Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Advil and Ibuprofen.
- Do not drink caffeine, alcohol, power supplements or take fish oil 24 hours prior to the procedure.
- Avoid the sun and tanning beds for a least two weeks prior to your procedure.
- Suspend eyebrow hair growth serums 2 weeks prior to procedure.
- It is not necessary to shape your eyebrows prior to coming into your appointment. However, if you have them shaped before you come in, that's fine too. Keep in mind, you and I as a team will be designing your eyebrows according to your consultation, your suggestions, your facial features; the color will be determined based on your preference, your skin tone and your hair color.

- As part of any Micropigmentation process, a follow up appointment needs to be scheduled for a touch up. This appointment takes place 30 days after your first visit. The touch up allows your permanent makeup to last longer, and it will help to improve the shape and color of your new eyebrows.
- Wait 2 weeks before you get a facial and inform your Aesthetician about your eyebrow procedure.
- Wait 30 days after you have your permanent makeup procedure done to use Retin-A, Retinols, any exfoliation products, chemical peels (AHA’s) or acid treatments, as well as laser, electrolysis, and microdermabrasion treatments. BE AWARE that the continued use of all these treatments will fade your permanent makeup prematurely.
- Wear a sunblock on your new eyebrows. Sun exposure and tanning beds will fade your permanent makeup faster.
- Smoking will cause your permanent makeup to fade prematurely.
- Before swimming, protect your new eyebrows with Vaseline. Swimming pools and whirlpools have chlorinated water containing bleach that will fade the color of your brows prematurely.
- Schedule your follow up or touch up appointment 4 to 8 weeks following your initial procedure. After this period, the fee for the touch up (normally $70) will increase to $150.
- Every two years, you should come for a color boost, and you will go through the same process - first you will come for your permanent makeup procedure, then 30 days later for the touch up.
