What is Microblading?
Also known as 3D Brows, microblading is the art of using micro needles with ink to create natural looking hair strokes in your eyebrows. The purpose is to enhance the natural shape of your brows, and give them a fuller look.
How long does it last?
Microblading generally last 1-3 years, depending on your age, skin type, and lifestyle. Touch-ups strongly recommended initially at 6-8 weeks, then once a year to keep your brows fresh and clean looking.
Does it hurt?
Most clients say it feels like scratching, or same pain as tweezing. However, some people are more sensitive to pain than others. We offer two different types of topical pain medicine to use throughout the process to ensure minimal discomfort.
What is the healing process?
Due to some swelling immediately after the procedure, brows can look a little pink. The fresh pigment may also look darker then your desired color. As your brows heal, they will begin to look softer and more natural. The healing process can be confusing due to many changes throughout. Upon finishing your procedure, you will be given a complete healing schedule to help you understand the process.
Do I need to shave, tweeze, thread or wax before procedure?
Some clients like to have their brows, but it is not necessary. We can decide on the shape together, and shape them for you. If shaping is done before procedure, no waxing please!! Waxing can have negative impact on procedure.
What if I’m pregnant?
Sorry moms! Due to possibility of excessive bleeding and medication creams used, moms should wait till after baby is born. If mom is nursing, then it is recommended to fully ‘pump and dump’ after the procedure before nursing again.
What if I have no or little eyebrow hair?
Then microblading is perfect for you!! People with Alopecia, Trichotillomania, or have been through chemo before are perfect candidates to have eyebrows again! Microblading can also fix brows that have been over tweezed or waxed in the past.
How long does the procedure take?
Initially between 60-90 minutes. Procedures may last longer depending on the client and results we are trying to achieve.
