Updated: Jun 21
Are you a candidate?
Unfortunately everyone isn't a candidate for Microshading. To ensure you have the best results possible with maximum retention of pigment after your appointment I have created a disqualifing list. Please feel free to email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please READ all the information below to ensure you are properly informed.
If you schedule your appointment and have one of the conditions listed above, I will refuse service and your deposit will be forfeited. *You must be 18+ to get Microshading done even with parental consent

*History of keloids or hypertrophic scarring
*Heart conditions, uncontrolled High Blood Pressure, Poor general health.
*Any treatment, medication, or illness that compromises the immune system/ healing would make you NOT a good candidate for microshading.
If you have previous MicroSHADINGor MicroBLADING, please text me (714) 510-2205 a clear photo of your brows and get an approval BEFORE booking your appointment. If you fail to do so, I will refuse your service and your deposit will be forfeited because not all previous microshading or microblading from other artist can be fixed or covered.
The morning of your appointment: No coffee, energy drinks or caffeinated or sugary drinks
48 hours: ibuprofen, aspirin, alcohol, caffeine drinks (coffee, coke, etc,)
2 weeks: no waxing or threading( I want to see how your brows grow out, brow tint, fish oils, botox in the brow area, eye cream, chemical peel, sun burns, AHA skincare products, tanning, fillers, collagen
30 days: no retinol, laser, chemical peels, microneedling or any intense skin rejuvenation
BEFORE YOUR MICROSHADING APPOINTMENT
Permanent cosmetic enhancement normally requires more than one session. To achieve the best results, you will be required to return for at least one 6-8 week touch-up after your initial application.
Be prepared for the color intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to 14 days.
*DO NOT use AHA skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your appointment.
*Discontine GlycolicsRetin-A / Retinol products 4 weeks before your scheduled appointment
*AVOID sun and tanning one week prior to your procedure.
DO NOT take Fish oil, Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and / or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
*If you've had any cosmetic surgical procedures done on the face area, please wait TWO MONTHS to fully heal prior to your microshading appointment.
*DO NOT consume any alcohol 24 hours before your scheduled appointment. This will prevent any excess bleeding, oozing, and minimizes swelling during the procedure.
*If there are any open wounds, pimples, bruises, or any other skin irritatios on the area; please wait for them to be completely healed before your appointment.
*Do not wax, thread or tint your eyebrows one week before your procedure( I will shave excess hair)
*No facials or chemical peels a week prior to your Appointment.
*If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-again creams, retinA/retinol products, acidic cleansers, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, your permanent makeup WILL fade prematurely. The better you take care of your brows and follow the provided aftercare, the longer it will last.
*Nobody's face is totally symmetrical and you need to be realistic with your expectations. There is no point in trying to make the eyebrows identical even if I were to use stencil on your brows they will still look different because our bone structure is not symmetrical. One brow bone will always dominant/ protrude or be a little higher than the other also the side your sleep on plays a factor. Sisters, NOT twins is used universally in this field.
