What is microblading?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing. A small tool called a microblading pen is used to deposit ink under the skin in the likeness of a real hairstroke. This method creates an incredibly realistic looking brow result.

How long does it last?
Your microbladed brows will last up to 24 months! Results may vary depending upon your aftercare/continuing skincare. The kinder you are to your brows (i.e. minimizing sun exposure/exfoliation, and maintaining proper moisturization) will ensure that your results will be long-lasting!

What can I expect during my appointment?
Your appointment will begin with a consultation where we will discuss your current brows, your facial shape and bone structure, your skin tone/hair color, and what you do/don’t like about your current brows. Once we have an understanding of these components, I will map out your new brows and remove any hairs that don’t fall into the new shape (this is done with a painless cosmetic razor). After mapping, I will apply an anesthetic cream to numb the brows that will process for 15-20 minutes to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. As your brows are numbing we will go through your client release form, aftercare instructions, and address any remaining questions that you may have. The actual microblading strokes will come next, during which anesthetic will be continuously applied. Once the strokes are complete we will look together at the brows and determine if there are any final touches necessary to complete the look! Once the process is complete we will pre-book your touch up appointment for 6-8 weeks following the first session.

What type of pigment is used?
The pigments used are highly concentrated versions of selective organic & inorganic colorants made specifically for microblading procedures. They are long lasting, and will be true to color once healed.

Is it safe?
We take every precaution to ensure your safety at Kentucky Brow Co. Completion of your client release form will alert us if there any contraindications for your appointment. We use only new, disposable instruments that are pre-packaged sterile for each and every client. Our pigments are from a certified cosmetic manufacturer and are of the highest quality.

Does it hurt?
As each client will have a different pain threshold, each would rate the “pain scale” differently during their appointment. To ensure minimal discomfort a topical numbing anesthetic is applied and left to process for 15-20 minutes at the beginning of the procedure, and an additional anesthetic is applied continuously throughout the service.

Is there any reason I wouldn’t be a candidate for microblading?
There are several contraindications for microblading:
Pregnancy (can still be completed with a doctor’s note)
Retinol (must discontinue use of this product for 30 days prior to the appointment)
Accutane (must discontinue use for at least one year prior to appointment)
Alcohol (do not consume for 24 hours prior to your appointment)
Botox/Facial Injections in brow area (should be completed no sooner than 3 weeks prior to/post appointment)
Sunburns/Inflamed acne (skin in area of procedure will need to be clear before microblading can be completed)
**This list is not entirely exclusive if any of these contraindications apply to you or you believe you may have a questionable circumstance, please consult with us for more information.

I have a previous eyebrow tattoo, can I still be microbladed?
In most cases this can be achieved, a consultation to determine success will be required.

Do I get to pick the shape and color?
I will collaborate with you to map out the perfect brows for your unique facial structure, coloring, and aesthetic desire.

Is there recovery time?
There is no down time with microblading, you can immediately partake in normal life with minimal discomfort. You will need to follow the aftercare instructions you are given to ensure the best healed result.

How should I prepare for my appointment?
Once you have booked your appointment, and paid your deposit, we will provide you with a pre-procedure instructional sheet via email.

Is gratuity customary?
Tipping is customary as in all service industries; However it is entirely at your discretion.
