What is Shading?

Shading is permanent cosmetic technique where the artist uses a manual tool or a digital machine by adding pigment into the eyebrows. The artist implants the pigment on the top layers of the skin, which gives it a very light and powdery look.

Just like Microblading, the artist implants pigment into the epidermis of the skin, giving it the most natural look, however it fades faster than the tradition brow tattoo, which is a good thing as most clients don’t want anything too permanent.

Touch-ups or Color Boost is advised if clients want to keep the brows looking fresh.

We advised clients to get touch ups, yearly up to 18 months. With proper care, brows will last longer.

A second touch-up is recommended after 3 month from the initial appointment. Price does not include touch-ups.

Proper care is very important during healing after your first appointment, to avoid infection and fading of the pigment. Instructions and Aftercare Cream are given after each procedure.

Why 2nd Touch-ups?

It is very important for clients to come back for their 2nd touch-ups. Not only the Microblading / Shading last longer, but final adjustments can be made such as thickness, symmetry etc.

  • The pigment is semi-permanent and will fade over time and will likely needed to be touched-up within 6 months to 2 years.
  • Generally, the results are excellent. However, a perfect result is not a realistic expectation.
  • Asymmetry: every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry but our faces are not symmetrical so adjustments ma be needed during the follow-up session to correct any unevenness.

What to expect during the procedure:

  • We begin by applying anesthetic cream on the treated area to numb, minimize pain and discomfort.
  • We then begin consultation with the client
  • We choose and decide the shape and color with client’s permission and approval.
  • We begin procedure.


Cautions: If the skin around the eyebrows breaks out in a heat rash, small pimples, this usually a reaction to the numbing solution and should go away by itself in a couple weeks, don’t pick. Please call immediately if this occurs so a technician can make note of the reaction and follow up to ensure this is not a more serious situation.


  • Avoid getting your brows wet for atleast 14 days! Do not dye or tweeze eyebrows for one week after the procedure!
  • Failure to follow post procedure instructions may result in infection or loss/discoloration of pigment.


  • Mild swelling, itching. Light scabbing, light bruising, and dry tightness. Ice packs are nice relief for swelling and bruising. Aftercare ointments work well for scabbing and tightness.
  • Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade, and once any swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If it is too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during the touch up appointment.
  • Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals, the color will lighten and sometimes seems to disappear in places. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment, which is why touch up is The procedure area has to heal completely before we can address any concerns.
  • Healing take on average four weeks.
  • Need a touch up months later. A touchup may be needed 6 months to 1 year after the first touch up procedure depending on your skin, medications and sun exposure. We recommend the first touch up 30 days after the first session; which is included in today’s price. Then every 6 months to 1 year to keep them looking fresh and beautiful. Future touch up sessions will cost the current touch up rate at the time you have done it. If most of the hair strokes have faded, the entire procedure will need to be repeated. An email photo consultation may be necessary to determine if you need a touch up or a repeat of the entire procedure.
