What is Microblading?
How long does the Microblading procedure take?
How do you pick the shape?
The million dollar question! On average I’d say 1+years. Some people more or less. Everyone is SO different. Each person has different skin types, and daily routines that can greatly impact the longevity of Microblading. Generally dry skin holds the pigment best, while oily skin and larger pores may require more maintenance. Sun exposure is also another huge one! Just like tattoo’s fade so will microblading ( Only faster since it doesn’t go as deep) follow post care instructions for the best results!
Why do you recommend a touchup?
After the first session, the initial healing process will take 7-11 days. Then your brows will go through a cycle of natural exfoliation. At first they may appear darker, then as the new skin forms it can cover a lot of the strokes. Once this natural exfoliation sets in they may even reemerge thicker. THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL. After 6 weeks you are considered fully healed and a touchup can be scheduled at this time. Microblading can heal about 30% lighter, keep that in mind upon color selection, especially if you have dark hair.
Not at all! In fact keeping the natural hair only gives Microblading an even more realistic illusion!
Can I wear makeup the day of Microblading?
YES! of course it does, Microblading does not cause permanent hair removal, so once you leave our facility then its up to you to keep them trimmed and maintained. Please do not wax until fully healed.
Will I still need to fill in my eyebrows after with makeup?
Microblading is a procedure that creates natural hair-like strokes. We can give you more of a full natural look, however if your like the drawn in glam powdered look you will still need to draw them in. Microblading also helps with having a solid template to draw them in as well!
What if I am pregnant?
Unfortunately, we will not be able to preform microblading on you (this includes touchup if you get pregnant after procedure). Please wait until after pregnancy to have the service done.
What’s the difference between Microblading and Permanent Makeup?
As mentioned Microblading uses a manual hand tool. Permanent makeup uses the traditional Tattoo machine. Microblading does not go as deep as a tattoo which is why it can fade faster. However, the chance of scarring and discoloration greatly decreases with Microblading, and the appearance is more natural.
