HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?

Your microblading will last as long as it’s maintained. The pigment can last 1-2 years depending on skin type and lifestyle. Touch Ups are generally required annually.

 

IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME?

With microblading, there is no downtime or need to hide away after the treatments. Redness and swelling may happen but goes away within a few hours. Your microblading will appear darker in color during healing. Please remember, your first three days will be the darkest, it will begin to fade after those first three days.

 

ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS DURING HEALING?

It is best to keep your brows clean and dry. Aftercare instructions will be given to you at the time of service. Please reference the "aftercare" tab for further details on healing.

 

ARE TOUCH UP APPOINTMENTS REQUIRED FOR MICROBLADING?

Yes, a touch up is required 6–8 weeks after the initial visit. Microblading is usually a multiple session process. Certain areas may not pick up during the first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, thickness, etc. Your touch-up session is when we perfect the brow to ensure it quality for the entire year.

 

MY BROWS ARE DONE HEALING BUT IT IS PATCHY. (IS THIS NORMAL?)

Yes, once the color boost occurs, your brows are healed and may have a few areas where the color did not retain. We will touch them up at your 6-8 week visit.

IS MICROBLADING PAINFUL?

Topical numbing is used throughout the procedures to keep you comfortable. Most clients say it feels/sounds like small scratches, however can vary between each client and their pain tolerance.

 

WHAT ARE PIGMENTS MADE OF?

Cosmetic tattoo pigments vary depending on the brand but are generally formulated with iron oxide, an ingredient safe on skin. All pigment suppliers are required to list their ingredients on their labels if you’re concerned about allergies (rare). Keep in mind that people can develop allergies to anything, anytime. All pigments are vegan and cruelty free.

 

HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING TAKE TO HEAL?

Average healing time takes 10-12 days. The tattooed hair strokes will be covered with new skin, giving the appearance that your tattoo has disappeared. Don't worry it hasn't! In the following weeks you will get a color boost as your newly generated skin settles. 6-8 weeks are required to  pass before we consider the process complete. It is important not to pick at any scabbing.

IT'S ONLY BEEN A FEW DAYS AND MY BROWS DISAPPEARED! 

Don't worry, it is common on most procedures as new skin generates to heal. Once fully healed the color will return and we will do follow up 6-8 weeks for your touch up. 

 

DOES MICROBLADING WORK FOR EVERYONE?

Unfortunately, microblading is not ideal for everyone. Pending on your skin type, hygiene and underlying provisions, the ink may not retain as well. If this is a concern please send an email or text so we can evaluate your best options.
