BROW TATTOOS AND PERMANENT MAKE UP IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
Microblading is typically a 2 part process:
1ST SESSION : Promotional price of $350
Foundation and the structure of the brows.
2nd SESSION : Complimentary
The second session is to perfect the little details and boost the color if needed after the initial healing process. If scheduled within 6-8 weeks of the 1st session it is complimentary as part of the initial cost. If not done in first 8 weeks it will be $150 cost for the perfecting session. It is highly recommended for you to come back for the second session so that your brows will look the best they can! If you like your brows after the first session, you will love them after the second.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR APPOINTMENT
Your appointment will be held in my private studio located in Raintree Offices, 3530 Beecaves road, suite 215, Westlake hills, Tx 78746. Flash your Lash is a Licensed Tattoo studio.
Doing a consultation beforehand is your choice; if you have very oily skin, acne prone skin or a previous tattoo it is best to do a consult first. I will go through the same consult process during the Microblading appointment if you decide to forgo the consult beforehand. At the consult I will asses your skin type and decide if you are the right candidate for Microblading. People with very oily skin the treatment can last as little as 6 months and thicker hair strokes are to be expected. During our consultation we will discuss your expectations and address your questions. I will need to know your medical history as well as any medications you may be taking. Contraindications can negatively affect the outcome of your tattoo so honesty is the best policy! After our consultation we will book an appointment for your Microblading procedure.
On the day of your procedure I will map out your eyebrows and make them symmetrical working with the natural shape of your existing brows. This will ensure that as your tattoo lightens over time you still have nice looking brows. After we agree on the shape and thickness of the brow we will choose your color. I work very closely with my clients to ensure we are making the best possible choices together. This is your face and I want you to feel comfortable with the shape and color. Your first appointment should take 2 hours. This includes drawing time.
During your appointment, feel free to utilize a pair of headphones and envelop yourself with music of your own variety. Grab a plush blanket and melt away on the table while Autumn handles the rest.
Whether your brows are sparse and uneven, or you’re looking for a low-maintenance, polished appearance, brow tattooing can enhance your current arches.
- The look of full and even brows
- Sweat and waterproof
- Camouflages sparse areas for a natural look
- Hides scars
- Semi-permanent, which allows adjustment to your brow shape as you age or as beauty trends change
Frequently asked questions about microblading
For best results, we recommend the following:
- Stop using skin thinners (vitamin A, glycolic acids, exfoliation) on the brow area 2 weeks prior to your appointment
- Do not consume alcohol, caffeine or blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, fish ou Niacin) 48 hours before your procedure, to avoid excess bleeding
- Avoid sun/ tanning bed exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the tattoo pigment with it
- Some cosmetic procedures should be completed prior to your brow tattoo:
o Brow waxing/shaping (2 days in advance)
o Brow tinting (1 week in advance)
o Cosmetic botox/fillers (2 weeks in advance)
Consultation & Brow Design: (30 min)
Please bring any brow example photos that catch your eye. As artists, we will work with you to shape and design a set of brows that highlights your natural facial features. From there, we choose a pigment match based on your skin tone and hair colour.
Numbing: (30 min)
We want you to be as comfortable as possible! Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic (5% lidocaine ointment) is applied. We also layer an additional numbing agent during the tattooing.
Tattooing: (60-90 min)
Your tattoo artist will carefully create small strokes of pigment that mimic the appearance of natural brow hair within the designed shape.
Post Appointment Healing:
The full, deep healing process takes 6-8 weeks; however, your visible top layers of skin will heal after 2 weeks. Your brows will experience a few normal mild side effects (slight redness, itchiness and peeling), which clients compare to the feeling of a sunburn.
Expect your tattoo to appear darker for the first 3-5 days. After day 4 or 5, light peeling will occur, revealing lighter and softer hair strokes.
Long-term aftercare is crucial for the longevity of your brow investment.
WHAT WILL MY HEALED BROW TATTOO LOOK LIKE?
Your results will vary depending on skin type, lifestyle and the immediate and long-term aftercare of your new tattoo. Once healed (after 6 weeks), the colour will reduce by 30-50 percent. Patchiness and lightness can be perfected during your second session.
WILL I NEED A TOUCH UP AFTER MY INITIAL APPOINTMENT?
The majority of our clients require 2 sessions to have their brows perfected. Touch up appointments can be made 2-3 months after your first visit. Clients with fuller brows may not need additional touch ups; however, clients with little or no natural brow hairs, or have corrected work, may need further density added.
After we’ve achieved your desired brow, an annual touchup is highly recommended to maintain the tattoos.
HOW LONG WILL THE FINAL RESULTS LAST?
Your brow tattoo will last 1-3 years depending on lifestyle, sun exposure and skin type. Oilier skin types tend to fade quicker than drier skin types.
WILL BROW TATTOOING BE PAINFUL?
To ensure maximum comfort during the procedure we use a topical numbing with 5% lidocaine prior and during your procedure. Since pain tolerance and sensitivity varies individually, we can’t say exactly how it will feel for you. The procedure uses a smaller needle than traditional tattooing and should hurt significantly less. Clients have related the procedure with eyebrow threading, plucking multiple hairs at once or a light scratching of the skin.
You may experience more sensitivity if the procedure is performed during or near your menstrual cycle.
WILL NATURAL BROW HAIRS BE REMOVED DURING THE PROCESS?
We incorporate as much of the natural brow hairs as possible. Any strays that lay outside of the brows design will be removed.
WILL COSMETIC TATTOOING WORK WELL FOR ME?
- If you have extremely oily skin, the hair stroke eyebrow technique will NOT work well for you. The constant production of oil will cause the hair strokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdery than defined.
- If you have little to no existing hair, your tattoo will appear more two-dimensional than those clients who have more hair naturally.
- If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment may fade sooner.
- If you are iron deficient or anemic, your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
HOW WILL MY COSMETIC TATTOO LOOK IN THE FUTURE?
During your appointment, we will analyze your skin's undertone to anticipate how pigment colours will fade in the future. We also mix pigments to ensure the colour blends well with your existing eyebrow and hair colour.
The majority of our clients' tattoos stay true to colour and lighten naturally over time; however, in some cases colours may fade to different tones according to the individual’s response to the pigments.
Many factors affect these changes, such as lifestyle and iron deficiencies. At your follow up appointment, we will re-analyze how your body has responded to the initial colour. Special formula alteration to correct the colour and to prevent further change is made at this time. Your eyebrow tattoo will eventually look softer and have more of a "powdered" look. This happens with all clients as the skin ages. To keep your hair strokes looking good, a refresher appointment is suggested every 1 to 2 years. Results vary with each client.
IS THE STUDIO AND EQUIPMENT SAFE?
Absolutely! We pride ourselves on having an immaculate and sterile studio space. We only practice with single use, disposable needles and supplies. This means each set-up for a new client is safely discarded afterwards. Each of our stations are thoroughly disinfected before opening and after each procedure throughout the day.
We are blood borne pathogens certified and Texas Department of State Health services approved.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR APPOINTMENTS?
Our home studio is in Austin, Texas full-time, but we occasionally travel and offer our services in other cities.
Please note our rates may increase in the case of travelling, events or other special circumstances. Travelling does not guarantee your second appointment in the city you came to see us; therefore, please prepare to visit us in Austin for future touch-ups.
