Before You Book

Microblading and shading is a very safe and effective way to amp up your existing eyebrows.


But... it is a tattoo on your face, so you should be armed with all the information about the procedure before you come in.

Infection and Allergy/Sensitivity Risk


The Gen X Brow Co. Client Agreement gives you a good idea of what to be aware of in terms of possible side effects and adverse outcomes of this procedure. Given that we are making intentional wounds to the skin and applying pigment, there is a risk of skin infection or a sensitivity reaction to the tool or pigments used. Gen X Brow Co. is an AHS approved, sterile working environment and every precaution is taken to ensure your best, safest outcome.

Infections and sensitivity reactions are very, very rare. If you have any worries, please feel free to book a consultation before your official microblading and shading session. I will walk you through the entire process including my sterilization practices, and the ingredients used in the procedure, so you can make an informed decision. 


Other Factors to Consider

In order to ensure the skin on and around your eyebrows is in the best possible condition to receive this procedure, and to eliminate excessive bleeding (which can alter the outcomes of the session and affect pigment retention), please heed the following recommendations:

  • Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before procedure

  • Do not tan two weeks prior or have sunburned face

  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to treatment

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure

  • Do not consume alcohol in the 2 days leading up to the procedure

  • Avoid caffeine the day of your procedure

  • Let your Botox or facial fillers rest for three weeks before booking the procedure

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)

  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days before the procedure

  • Stop using brow growth serums of any kind 2 weeks before the session
