Frequently Asked Questions


What Is Microblading? How Long Does It Last? 

Microblading, also known as microstroking, eyebrow embroidery, hair stroke tattoo, and feather stroke brows, is the process of manually implanting pigment beneath the dermal layer of the skin and is considered tattooing, therefore permanent. Due to the nature of the delicate and crisp hair stroke technique, it requires more frequent touch-ups than any other permanent makeup technique. Microblading lasts 6 months to 3 years depending on many factors such as skin type, lifestyle, skin care regimen, medical history, and meditation. Annual touch-ups are recommended to freshen the brows up.

Does It Hurt? 

The discomfort is relative to every individual’s pain threshold. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the brows during the procedure. Clients describe any discomfort as similar to tweezing and they are mostly very comfortable during the procedure.

How Long Is the Procedure? 

The procedure is 2 hours from start to finish.

What Happens After the First Procedure?

Your brows will not be completed after just one session. You will need a second appointment, also known as a perfecting touch-up appointment, 8-12 weeks after the initial appointment. Everyone heals differently and at different rates. At this appointment, Macy will fill in any missing spots, perfect the shape, and adjust the colour and density if need be. This appointment is mandatory or else your procedure is considered incomplete. This is included in your initial fee.

Do I Need a Consultation First and Can I Have the Procedure Done on the Same Day? 

After reviewing the contraindications, you will need a consultation appointment. This allows the artist and the client to get to know each other and decide if they are right for one another. This also gives the artist time to determine the client’s eligibility and get a sense of their needs and style. Macy does not schedule the procedure on the same day. Please come to this appointment with your brows how you normally have them on a day-to-day basis (i.e., how everyone sees you normally).


What Rules Should I Follow Before My Procedure? 

Following all of these steps is crucial to achieving the best end result:

  • Make sure your health is in good condition.
  • Get enough rest, eat well, and exercise.
  • Stop tanning and stay out of direct sunlight for 2 months prior to your appointment.

72 Hours Before Your Microblading Appointment:

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen as these will thin your blood.
  • Botox should be done 2-4 weeks prior to the procedure.
  • Do not wax, tweeze, thread, or tint 1½–2 weeks prior.

  • Stop using Retin-A or any anti-aging products 1 month prior to your procedure.
  • Stop using hair growth serums on your brow at least 8 weeks prior to your procedure.

One Week Before 


Stop taking vitamin E, vitamin B6, omega 3, ginkgo biloba, and St. John's Wort as they contribute to the thinning of the blood and may affect anesthetic efficacy. You may resume taking your vitamins 72 hours after.

On the Day of Your Appointment

Avoid caffeine and exercise as these will thin your blood. Wash your hair in the morning as you will need to avoid the shower for several days. Baths are recommended.


It is very important to follow the steps to prevent thinning your blood. Bleeding excessively during the procedure will negatively affect your end results.

What is Microshading/

Powder ombre Brows?

All of these techniques are more like a  traditional tattoo, thousands of tiny little dots of pigment are implanted into the skin using a tattoo machine. Powder brows have been around for decades and many people are afraid of due to its reputation of being solid and unnatural looking. Today's Powder/Ombre brows have come a long way since their inception. They can be made to look very soft and natural looking by not saturating the brow with pigment and allowing for a defined yet soft and non bold and solid look.   

 This technique is great for all skin types, specially individuals with oily/combination skin.  also for anyone who likes to fill in their brows everyday with shadow or pencil. it mimics the look of powder filled brows without the daily effort.   less frequent touchups are required, 12- 18 months is the average refresh.

 microshading ( done by a manual tool) or machine powder can be added to microblading to create more depth and density and  incredibly natural and fluffy looking  results.  this look is referred to combo brows or hybrid.
