FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Microblading is a relatively new manual method of semi-permanent makeup. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional eyebrow tattoo technique. It is done using a very fine blade, that deposits pigment into the epidermis. Since the color is being applied closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine.

This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of natural eyebrow hair. The results are natural, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. This style is strongly desired when the natural brow hair will not grow on its own, since it presents brow look.

The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color and blend perfectly into eyebrow hair that currently remains. The results are a natural and fluffier-looking brow. Initially, the brows will appear darker but fade significantly over a two-week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.

The results can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years. Many factors can affect this time frame, such as the clients type of skin, proper care of the brows after the procedure, and many others. It is recommended to have a touch-up procedure done annually to retain the proper shape and saturation of pigment.

There are various reviews on pain of the procedure. Everyone acquires a different level of sensitivity, so it is impossible to give a direct answer. A topical anesthetic is always applied prior and throughout the treatment, this will alleviate any sensation or discomfort. Some clients may even feel more sensitive with one brow than the other. You will hear a scratch like noise during the procedure, this is normal and nothing to be concerned about. Music is usually played during the procedure, however feel free to bring your own ear phones and music to listen to.

Absolutely! Only sterilized, disposable needles and supplies are used.

The procedure lasts roughly two hours but may be longer or shorter. Please allow a solid 3-hour window for your appointment. It likely will not require that much time but is not something that can be rushed.

Microblading is fit for dry and normal skin types. It is not recommended for those with oily skin type as the strokes tend to blur with poor retention. For oily skin, Ombre powder brows may be the best option.

The healing process should take 10-14 days.

At day 2, your brows will appear darker but do not be alarmed this is expected. The color will lighten 20-30% when healed and will continue to fade over time.

At day 4-5, you can expect your brows to start flaking. During the flaking period, your brows will appear light and patchy but give it 2-4 weeks the color will even out and resurface.

Once your brows are done flaking, you can resume normal activities such as applying makeup, working out, etc. (EXCEPT certain activities listed in the aftercare) However to prolong the longevity of your brows, avoid aggressive washing and exfoliating of the brow and wear sunscreen when exposed to sunlight.

This semi-permanent makeup is a two-step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and a touch up, between 4 to 6 weeks after. After taking a before photo, the brow design is drawn with a pencil, to give the client an idea of shape and form. (Please note that majority of faces are not completely symmetrical. Eyebrows are not meant to be identical and it is impossible to attain this look even with natural brow hair. It is also not possible to match a photo of your favorite celebrities’ eyebrows when you may have an entirely different face shape.) Once both the microblading artist and client have agreed on a final shape (ultimately it is the clients decision – but the artist may make recommendations based on their knowledge of what suits a person aesthetically), I will shape your eyebrows then we will decide on the color. Shortly after that,

a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure comfort. Once you’re numb, the pigment is deposited. During the healing process, it is normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why a touch up is done. Expect a booking time of 2-3 hours.

Touchup appointment can be scheduled in 4-8 weeks. Touchup session is a must and considered a perfection session to go over any spots that did not pick up the pigment well. They should last you 1-3 years and you may return annually or bi-annually for a color reboost.

Unfortunately, we cannot. It is impossible to predict how the skin will react in each individual and many factors are taken into consideration; skin type, age, scarring, diet, stress levels, facial products used, etc. These all play a key role in how the pigment will hold, which is why it is crucial to know that more than one touch up may be required.

We treat our client’s brows as our own and offer the best possible treatment as we can. Using our experience and expertise to give the absolute best outcome possible. We guarantee to strive for complete satisfaction in the design of your brows every time. Again, reiterating that there are no guarantees in this industry. Please carefully take into account all aspects of the process and decide carefully if having your eyebrows microbladed is right for you.

Unfortunately, I do not work over another artist’s work. Exceptions may be if the color is invisible or has been removed completely. If you have prior work done, Ombre Powder Brows may be the best option for coverups and corrections.
