Frequently Asked Questions
What is microblading?
Microblading is the manual process of implanting pigment into the upper region of our skins dermis in a way to mimic the appearance of natural hair. With time hair strokes will soften and fade and need to be refreshed.
How long does it last?
The longevity of your microblading procedure depends on a few things. Aftercare is key, and needs to be followed diligently for best results. Other factors would be skin type, lifestyle, and pigment choice. Clients who have a more oily complexion may need touch ups sooner than a client who is normal to dry. Once healed, it is recommended to keep SPF on the eyebrows to protect them from fading in the sun. One would also want to avoid any skin care products that peel the skin in the eyebrow area. Darker pigment choices take longer to fade than lighter pigments as well. Upon completion of your first appointments, touch ups can be expected anywhere from six to eighteen months depending on the individual.
Does it hurt?
We build enough time into your appointment to allow for a topical anesthetic to sit for twenty minutes. Halfway through your procedure, a liquid numb is also applied to alleviate any further discomfort. We take all necessary steps to make your appointment as pain free as possible.
How long do the appointments take?
Your first appointment will be approximately two and a half hours. A large portion of your appointment consists of consultation. We will choose a shape for your eyebrows based off of facial measurements, but also personal preference, and working with what natural hair you have. We strive to incorporate as much of your natural eyebrows as possible for a dimensional look. Your touch up appointment will be scheduled for an hour and a half to allow for numbing, and to finish your eyebrows.
