FAQs:

What is Microblading?

Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery, feather brows, microstroking, feather tattooing, is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skin care routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrow, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration. 

How Long does it take? 

For the first Microblading Session, the entire procedure should take about 2.5 - 3 hours. During the session, the brow technician will map, shape, and style the clients brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure. The client is to come n for a followup procedure in order to make minor touch ups. This second procedure is pertinent for sustainability. The second Microblading procedure "touch up" session takes place 6-8 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1-2 hours. 

How long does it take to heal?

The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. No downtime is required after the microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque, milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once the tissue is fully healed. 

Is the touch up necessary? 

Yes! A touch up session after 6-8 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during the initial session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!

Can I get my touch up session sooner than 6 weeks? 

Touch up sessions should not be done any earlier than 4 weeks after the initial microblading session as pigment color has not fully settled into the skin. Most importantly, this is to prevent scar damage as the tissue requires time to completely heal. 

Is it Painful?

The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure, your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and will also reapply it through out the procedure to maintain your comfort level. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described at light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine, and epinephrine. If you are allergic to any of the above, please inform your technichian prior to the procedure. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. Clients can take Tylenol to ease any discomfort. 

What are the Pre Session Instructions? 

In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the the pre and post care instructions. Prior to the procedure clients are advised of the following: *Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. *Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone. *No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior. *Avoid waxing, tweezing, or threading at least 72 hours prior.
