Microblading Policies

Touch-Ups

We recommend and emphasize it is imperative that you schedule your touch-up 4-8 weeks after your initial session. The first of the 2-step microblading process allows us to see how well your skin retained pigment. The second session allows us to add depth to brows if needed, fill in any faded areas and re-touch as needed. Healing depends on each person and how carefully the After-Care Instructions are followed. Generally, touch-ups are always needed to achieve desired results. 

Depending on time frame from your last appointment, additional touch-up sessions will be charged accordingly. 

We do not touch-up other artist's work. Please consult with us and email photo of current eyebrows prior to booking an appointment as it may require more work, depending on the fading and color of your existing eyebrow tattoos. This may result in a higher rate for microblading.

Deposits

All deposits are non-refundable.

We require a $200 deposit in order to book and confirm your appointment. This deposit will be deducted from the total cost of the service. We require a 48-hour notice to reschedule or cancel your appointment. Last minute cancellations or No-Shows result in forfeiting the deposit.

Cancellations

We require a 48-hour notice before cancelling your appointment to avoid forfeiting your deposit. You will need to contact us to reschedule.

Results

Every client heals differently so results will vary with each individual. Additional sessions, at an additional charge, are available in order to achieve desired results as we do not guarantee successful results, especially on problematic skin. We use premium products and provide quality service but due to different healing per individual and many factors, this can lead to varied results. A vital portion of your appointment will be spent meticulously selecting your brow shape and color until you agree.

Carefully read through our FAQ and Information sections to see if this procedure benefits you. All services are non-refundable. 

Healed results vary with each and every client. Using a pencil or powder may still be needed. We do NOT have control over what occurs during the healing process. Absolutely NO guarantee will be made. Additional sessions, charged accordingly, amy be required to obtain optimal results.

*IMPORTANT*

Our FAQ and Information sections assist you in determining whether you are a good candidate for this procedure and should elect to make a microblading appointment with us. Please read. Upon your arrival, should we determine that you canNOT have the procedure performed on you due to a condition listed in our FAQ and Information sections, your deposit will be non-refundable.
