Microblading is a permanent makeup procedure that is comprised of a manual implantation of pigment beneath the most superficial layers of the skin to mimic the appearance of hair strokes. This is also referred to as "feather stroke, 3D brows, and microstroking."
Is it permanent?
In all respects, yes, this is a permanent procedure. However, most clients will notice a decrease in darkness of the pigments as the skin accepts and heals above the microbladed hair strokes. All cases are different, and everyone's skin is different. Most clients obtain optimal retention after one initial procedure and one touch up. Yearly touch ups are recommended, however some clients prefer to go longer between maintenance appointments. Without any touch up or maintenance, microbladed eyebrows will eventually fade away completely.
How is my brow shape decided?
Everything is done with your input. Brows are mapped according to your specific facial morphology. This is the way that your bone structure and skin come together to make your facial anatomy. Following your structure, your eyebrows will be mapped to best compliment all facial features. If you find that any part of your eyebrow is not to your liking, we can augment the shape. However, most clients are pleasantly surprised when they see how their new brow structure compliments them and brings out their features.
Does my eyebrow hair have to be removed fully before being microbladed?
No! Microblading will take place behind and around your natural eyebrow hair. It is meant to enhance and combine with any hair you already have. The eyebrow area may be cleaned up to remove extra hairs outside of the brow shape.
How long does it take?
Every client is different and some procedures take longer than others. However, most appointments take about 1.5-2 hours total to include consultation, mapping, and microblading.
How long does this last?
Microblading is considered a permanent makeup procedure. It is recommended that clients get an annual touch up to keep their eyebrows looking their best. However, as each skin type is different and everyone leads a different lifestyle, the longevity of microblading cannot be predicted or guaranteed. Clients with more sun exposure or oily skin may notice a decrease in pigment more quickly.
**Please note that final results cannot be guaranteed as each unique skin type holds pigment different and breaks down at different rates. We will re-evaluate your results at your follow up appointment and make adjustments as necessary.
This is a very common concern as you have most likely come to be very familiar with how your eyebrows look when filled, or penciled, in. Most likely, you will not be dissatisfied with the way that your eyebrows are mapped to your face, as this is done according to your unique facial symmetry and done in order to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing result.
Microbladed eyebrows are meant to mimic a natural brow with hair strokes and shading. In most cases, when an eyebrow is filled in manually, it is done without a gradience of color and appears rather solid. In this respect, your new eyebrows are mostly not as heavy as makeup but not jarring in difference.

Risks and Complications:
If you are concerned about any complication or allergic reaction, we recommend a patch test to see how your skin will react to the pigment. Patch tests should be performed about 5-7 days prior to the procedure, however in some very rare cases, some people do experience latent reactions to pigment.All pigments used by Boss Brow Studio are cosmetic grade and hypoallergenic and should not disturb most skins.

If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of your eyebrows, we can adjust or fix most concerns. As the eyebrows heal after the initial procedure, some lines will not retain as much as others. Your skin may settle causing the appearance of uneven lines. This can be fixed during your touch up. In some (rare) cases, retention of pigment in certain clients leads to a cooler-toned or slightly grey appearance of pigment, this is also able to be corrected during your touch up. All skin is different and everyone heals differently. Moderately to extremely oily skin in most cases affects the appearance of microbladed hair strokes to seem more diffused and softer. In some cases, additional touch ups are required for this skin type to ensure full retention. With no upkeep or touch ups, microbladed eyebrows will eventually fade away completely.
