Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
The pigment used in this procedure is semi-permanent, therefore the procedure typically lasts up to 12 months or longer. Because of the unique qualities of each individual’s skin and lifestyles, we are unable to guarantee how long your results will last. You will likely need a touchup within 6-24 months.
HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE?
Your first appointment will take between 60-90 minutes, as plenty of time will be taken to assure that we have created the shape you desire before the procedure is performed.
Your second appointment (4 week touch up) will be between 30-60 minutes.
DOES IT HURT?
Each individual will have a different experience with the level of discomfort associated with the service. Some say it is relaxing and they only feel the pressure being applied. Others say it feels about as uncomfortable as tweezing. Still there are some who will feel that it is more uncomfortable. Two topical anesthetics are used to ensure your comfort level during the procedure. One is applied 20 minutes prior to beginning the procedure and the second is applied throughout the entire procedure.
WHAT’S THE HEALING PROCESS LIKE?
When you leave from your appointment your brow area may appear pink, and the pigment itself will seem darker than you may prefer. The day after your appointment few people would notice anything unusual. Throughout the healing process (1-2 weeks) they will slowly fade to a softer, more natural shade, but they will not be unpresentable.
I HAVE NO BROWS, CAN I STILL GET THIS PROCEDURE?
Absolutely, this is a great option for those who suffer from Alopecia, Trichotillomania, or have been through Chemotherapy. Microblading can even correct past wax catastrophe, over tweezing, or the normal hair thinning that occurs post menopause.
I’M PREGNANT, CAN I GET THIS PROCEDURE?
Sorry mom, due to your susceptibility to excessive bleeding, we do not recommend this procedure for you.
WILL MICROBLADING MAKE THE HAIR THAT I HAVE FALL OUT?
Microblading does not damage hair follicles. It is a soft procedure that penetrates only through top skin layers.
CAN I DO FACIALS AFTER MICROBLADING?
It is highly recommended that you do not do any facial treatment for 30 days after your microblading treatment. It takes a full 4 weeks for healing to take place. You can maintain normal facial hygiene right away but you are required not to do facials and apply retinol products and any other creams around your brow/forehead area during healing. Even though your Esthetician does not apply facial treatment on your brow area, the actual treatment products penetrate your skin and the treatment product travels and it will reach the tattooed area. This can definitely cause the fresh pigment to lift and fade. So it is best to look after your brow investment for this short time, heal, complete your touch up, heal again and then proceed with your facial treatments.
