FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What  is Microblading?

 

-Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing, in which an artist manually creates the illusion of hair strokes using a hand tool along with permanent makeup pigments. It can supplement or even replace everyday eyebrow makeup and give the illusion of fuller brows. The skin, especially of the face, is a living, breathing canvas that is subjected to a variety of elements.

 

How long does it last and what makes it last longer?

-Microblading varies on different factors of your skin and what you expose your face to.

-Touch ups  are typically for the toning to be refreshed and darkening the pigment fading. 

Following factors are the most common causes for faster fading:

- exposure to excessive sun

- exfoliation

- face oils 

- not following after care instructions

- harsh skin care products 

Does Microblading hurt?

The topical numbing anesthetics will be applied before the blade ever touches your skin. With that being said, it shouldn't necessarily hurt. I like to think of it as an unfamiliar feeling. Everyone has different pain tolerances, but I guarantee that as a client of mine I will work with you if there is any discomforts that you are feeling.

Try to avoid scheduling during menstruation or stressful emotional times in your life as the body is generally more sensitive during this time.

What can I expect with after treatment care and timing of healing?

Some clients prefer to schedule Microblading around work hours or events because they may be dark or flaky. The first 7 days they will go through the most obvious changes.

1. Immediately after your brows look darker & thicker than the healed result.

2. Between day 1 to 5 the brows darken. This is temporary, it is not the final color. It is simply a scab-like protective layer that has formed.

3. Day 7 to 10 the scab like layer can begin to peel/flake.

4. After day 10 to 2 weeks the brows look very light & you may think "Where is the color...it is gone!" This is normal, new skin is cloudy & healed over the pigment masking it.

5. Lastly, around week 3, the new healed skin becomes clear & the pigment is visible again.

When do I need to come in for touch-up sessions?

-It is suggested once a year to come in for a touch up, although some clients may need touch-ups more or less depending on the factors of their skin.
