FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo. Using a specialized tool a semi-permanent pigment is deposited into the superficial dermis of the skin. Each stroke is carefully placed to create natural-looking eyebrows.
Who is it for?
Microblading is great for those who want natural-looking eyebrows.
Who is it not for?
If you have extremely oily skin, microblading may not work well for you. The constant production of oil will cause the hair strokes to heal softer and more diffused. Your end result will end up looking powdered.
If you have little or no existing hair, your tattoo will appear more 2-dimensional than those clients who have more hair naturally.
If you have thin or mature skin microblading may not be your best option. Microblading performed on thin skin can heal blotchy and blurry.
If you are iron deficient or Anemic, your pigment may fade sooner, and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
Does it hurt?
Numbing cream is used before and during the procedure. Most clients experience little discomfort
How long does it take to heal?
The surface of the skin is normally healed after about 10-14 days, however, it takes another 3 weeks or so for the skin to fully heal and "sheer up" revealing the pigment beneath the skin.
How long will they last?
Microblading can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years.
How many treatments will I need?
Most clients are happy after their first touch-up, however, clients with very sparse areas or those with retention issues may need an additional session.
How often should I get touched up?
With microblading, less is more. In order to maintain a soft natural look, microblading should only be touched up when necessary. If touch-ups are done too frequently, brows start to lose negative space. Adding new hair strokes over areas that already have diffused pigment in the skin will look great immediately, but don't always heal well, resulting in muddy overdone brows.
