Procedure

Your Microshading appointment lasts 2-3 hours, and only the client is allowed in the service room. Upon arrival, we begin with numbing and a consultation, discussing your expectations and providing advice. Bring pictures for reference, but note that the final result may vary based on individual features. We measure facial features, ensuring a customized look.

A "before picture" is taken, followed by the Pre-draw phase lasting 30 minutes to an hour. We draw and adjust the eyebrow shape based on client preferences. Once confident, we proceed to the procedure, taking 45 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes, depending on skin absorption.

After the procedure, an "after picture" is taken, and you receive an after-care packet. Schedule a 4-8 week touch-up, a crucial step in the process. The second appointment is shorter, focusing only on the procedure. Don't skip the touch-up, as appointments beyond 3 months incur yearly charges.
