Our Services


Marie Alfano

Boy Mom (My favorite title), CEO, Licensed Esthetician, Certified Permanent Makeup Artist & Removal Specialist

Marie began her esthetic career in 2015 and quickly became obsessed with skin and eyebrows. She started working in one of Chicago’s top spas as an esthetician, but always had an entrepreneurial mindset. By continuing to further her education and look for a solution to her own brows, she discovered microblading and never looked back!

  • On Steroids or antibiotics, (must be off medication for at least 1 month)

How Painful Is The Procedure?

Minimal to no pain. We use Lidocaine numbing throughout the procedure.

About How Long Does It Take To Complete?

About 2 – 2 1/2 hours for initial appointments, and 1 – 1 1/2 hours for Touch-Ups.

What Is The Recovery Process?

It takes 10 days for your brows to heal on the surface. Your brows will be darker for the first few days of your appointment, and then start to scab throughout the next week. Although the appearance will go through a few phases, there is no down time.

How Long After First Session Can You Do The Touch Up?

Your first touch up should be scheduled  no sooner than 8 weeks after from your initial appointment.

How Long Does It Last Before Having To Get It Done Again?

Usually, clients come in every 12-24 months for a color boost. Some clients with a combination – oily skin will need more frequent touch ups.

Am I a candidate even though I have previously microblading?

If your brows are a good shape and color, you would be a candidate for a color boost. If a correction needs to be done, you may potentially need removal or color correction appointments prior to your new brows. Please text us  photos of your brows so we can make the best recommendation for you.

Is A Consultation Necessary Prior?

No. We go over all details in the beginning of your appointment, but if you have previously tattooed brows, you must send us photos or come in for a consult to determine which service is best for you. We offer consulting over video call as well.
