FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT WILL MY BROWS LOOK LIKE AFTER MY APPOINTMENT?

IMMEDIATELY AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT THE BROWS WILL BE SHARPER, BOLDER, AND DARKER THEN WHAT THE HEALED RESULTS WILL BE. DO NOT PANIC YOUR BROWS WILL STILL LOOK NATURAL AND BEAUTIFUL, JUST EVER SO SLIGHTLY DARKER. THE SECOND DAY THEY WILL BE AT THEIR DARKEST, DO NOT PANIC THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL.

WHY DO THE BROWS LOOK LIGHTER AND THEN DARKER AGAIN?

AFTER THE FLAKING PROCESS OF THE HEALING PROCESS THERE IS FRESH SKIN THAT IS OVER THE PIGMENT WE JUST IMPLANTED. THIS FRESH SKIN CAN GIVE THE PIGMENT A FADED AND LIGHT APPEARANCE, IT TAKES THE FULL 6 WEEKS FOR THE COLOR TO FULLY SHOW BACK THROUGH AND YOU WILL THEN KNOW WHAT THE TRUE COLOR AND RETENTION WILL BE. IF THERE IS STILL ANY LIGHT OR PATCHY AREAS THIS WILL BE ADDRESSED AT YOUR TOUCH UP.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO GET MY BROWS DONE?

YOU WILL NEED AN ANNUAL TOUCH UP TO KEEP THE BROWS LOOKING BRIGHT AND SHARP, ANNUAL IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE AS LIFESTYLES, METABOLISM, AND GENETICS WILL PLAY A PART IN HOW QUICKLY YOUR PIGMENT STARTS TO FADE. I RECOMMEND ANYWHERE FROM 12-18 MONTHS FOR A TOUCH UP, SOME MAY BE ABLE TO GO LONGER. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND COMING IN FOR TOUCH UPS MORE THAN THAT AS WE DO NOT WANT TO BUILD UP ANY SCAR TISSUE. PLEASE WAIT TILL THEY ARE AT LEAST 60% FADED BEFORE BOOKING YOUR ANNUAL TOUCH UP, IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE OR TWO LITTLE SPOTS THAT ARE FADED IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO GO OVER THE WHOLE BROW AND RISK DAMAGING THE SKIN. THE LONGER YOU WAIT THE BETTER IT WILL BE FOR YOUR SKIN AND THE HEALED RESULTS LONG TERM.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE THE SHAPE?

WE MAP THE BROWS ACCORDING TO YOUR BONE STRUCTURE TO ENSURE WE ARE GIVING THE MOST NATURAL RESULTS. ONCE MAPPED IF YOU HAVE ANY PERSONAL PREFERENCES SUCH AS LONGER TAILS, HIGHER ARCH, ETC THE SHAPE CAN BE ADJUSTED TILL YOU AND THE TECHNICIAN ARE HAPPY WITH THE SHAPE BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE NUMBING.PLEASE KEEP IN MIND WE WILL NOT TATTOO ANY SHAPES THAT ARE NOT NATURAL OR UNFLATTERING FOR YOUR FACE.

WILL I HAVE ANY PAIN?

MOST OF OUR CLIENTS FEEL VERY LITTLE DISCOMFORT. WE USE TWO NUMBING AGENTS TO KEEP YOU COMFORTABLE THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS, ONE PRIOR AND ONE THAT CAN BE USED IN OPEN WOUNDS THROUGH OUT. IF YOU ARE CONCERNED WITH PAIN WE RECOMMEND NOT BOOKING DURING YOUR MENSTRUAL CYCLE AS WE HAVE FOUND IT DOES CAUSE YOU TO BE SLIGHTLY MORE SENSITIVE.

WILL I NEED TO STILL USE BROW MAKE UP?

MICROBLADING IS A LOW MAINTENANCE PROCEDURE NOT A NO MAINTENANCE PROCEDURE. MICROBLADING DOES NOT REPLACE THE LOOK OF MAKE UP. IT WILL STILL GIVE YOU A GORGEOUS NATURAL BROW AND A PERFECT SHAPE TO FOLLOW IF YOU EVER WANT A MORE FILLED LOOK. IF YOU ARE WANTING A MORE "MAKE UP" LOOK I RECOMMEND EITHER A COMBO BROW OR AN OMBRE BROW.

AM I ALLOWED TO SMOKE CIGARETTES BEFORE THE PROCEDURE?

IT IS OK TO SMOKE CIGARETTES BUT PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THOSE WHO ARE FREQUENT SMOKERS TEND TO BE MORE SENSITIVE DURING THE PROCEDURE AND TEND TO HAVE THE PIGMENT FADE FASTER THEN SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT.

IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD AVOID TO HELP THE LONGEVITY OF MY BROWS?

TO KEEP THE PIGMENT RETENTION AS LONG AS POSSIBLE IT IS IMPORTANT TO AVOID ANY RETINOLS, GLYCOLIC ACIDS, ANTI AGING CREAMS AND EXFOLIATING ON THE ACTUAL BROW/FOREHEAD REGION. IF YOU REGULARLY GET FACIALS PLEASE LET YOUR TECHNICIAN KNOW YOU HAVE MICROBLADING SO THEY CAN AVOID THE AREA. IF YOU ARE OUT IN THE SUN REGULARLY IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE A SPF TO PROTECT YOUR BROWS FROM UV RAYS WHICH CAN PREMATURELY FADE AND CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE PIGMENT USED.

CAN I STILL USE MY BROW GROWTH SERUMS AFTER MICROBLADING?

USE BROW GROWTH SERUMS AFTER MICROBLADING AT YOUR OWN RISK, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF THE SERUMS TO SHIFT THE COLOR OF THE MICROBLADING.

CAN I GET LASER SKIN RESURFACING AFTER MICROBLADING?

IF YOU ARE GETTING ANY LASER SKIN RESURFACING OR LASER HAIR REMOVAL PLEASE INFORM YOUR TECHNICIAN YOU HAVE MICROBLADING SO THEY CAN AVOID THE AREA AS LASERS CAN CHANGE THE COLOR OF YOUR PIGMENT.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE?

YOU ARE NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICROBLADING IF YOU HAVE THIN, AGED OR MATURE SKIN, EXCESSIVELY OILY, OR VERY LARGE PORES. THIS CLIENTS WILL NOT HAVE IDEAL HEALED RESULTS AND WOULD BE A BETTER CANDIDATE FOR OMBRE OR POWDER BROWS. IF YOU ARE UNSURE IF YOUR SKIN IS A GOOD CANDIDATE YOU CAN SEND A PICTURE TO TORICELINABEAUTY@GMAIL.COM.

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME TO MY APPOINTMENT?

NO ONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 IS ALLOWED IN THE STUDIO INCLUDING THE WAITING AREA. YOU MAY BRING ONE GUEST BUT THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO WAIT IN THE WAITING AREA AS WE DO NOT HAVE ROOM OR EXTRA SEATS FOR GUESTS NEAR OUR WORK STATIONS.

IS THERE A CANCELLATION FEE?

YOU ARE ABLE TO RESCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT UP TO 48 HOURS TO YOUR APPOINTMENT AND YOU WILL NOT LOSE YOUR NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT. IF YOU RESCHEDULE OR NO SHOW YOU WILL LOSE THAT DEPOSIT AND WILL BE REQUIRED TO LEAVE ANOTHER TO BOOK ANOTHER APPOINTMENT. FOR ARTISTS WHO INCLUDE THEIR FIRST TOUCH UP IF YOU NO SHOW OR LAST MINUTE RESCHEDULE THERE WILL BE A $50 CHARGE TO THE CARD ON FILE.
