How does microblading work?
Microblading is a technique that involves depositing pigment into the skin to create the appearance of individual hair strokes. It is a tattooing technique using permanent ink to draw each individual hair onto the skin. It requires artistic skill and precision to produce natural looking eyebrows.
Does microblading look natural?
When done correctly, microblading can and does look very natural. Most people don’t realize you have had a treatment because the hairs are drawn with a very fine microblade and blended to look like real brows.
How long does microblading last?
Microblading lasts up to 2 years depending on your skin type and skincare. It is considered to be permanent and you can get touch ups to enhance the results over time. It is important to understand that each skin heals and takes the pigment differently.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Yes, the procedure is done in 2 steps and the touch up should be done 4 to 6 weeks after the first appointment. After that, we recommend a yearly touch up for color boost.
Does microblading hurt?
We use topical anesthetic to numb the treatment areas so you will feel little to no discomfort. You might experience some soreness once the anesthetic wears off, but the pain level won’t be more than that of a sunburn. You will need to keep the treatment area dry so it can scab and the pigment can settle in.
How long does a microblading appointment take?
The full treatment typically takes 2 hours, including a consultation to discuss the shape and style of the brows you want. Your technician will go over post-procedure recommendations to ensure you get the best possible results. Touch up visits will be shorter.
How long does it take to heal after microblading?
You’ll notice your brows are much darker immediately after treatment because you have fresh pigment on your skin. Your brows will look much fuller and darker than normal for up to 7 days after treatment and it will take about 30 days for the area to heal completely. You may experience some mild scabbing as the area heals.
Who is a candidate for microblading?
We can work on all skin types, tones, and hair colors. However, if you are pregnant, have very oily skin, develop keloids easily, or have very large pores, you may not be a good candidate for this type of cosmetic procedure.
To ensure proper healing, we recommend stopping all types of retinol creams and treatments. Aspirin, alcohol and any blood thinners should be avoided 24 hours before your appointment.
