F.A.Qs

Why Microblading?

Microblading is a helpful option for a variety of people whether they are looking for an enhancement and don’t have time to do make-up every morning or for those who have suffered from hair loss. It is also a great alternative for anyone looking to simplify their beauty routine, whether that’s getting out of bed and spending less time in front of the mirror, going to the gym, in a profession that dictates being in front of the camera or on stage frequently, or even going swimming without having to worry about their makeup coming off. Permanent makeup is also a great option for people who have loss of vision or loss of motor skills due to aging or medical conditions.

Does it hurt?

You will be numbed with our top of the line numbing cream which will ease about 80% of the discomfort. Once we start the actual procedure, I will numb you again to make sure sensitivity is reduced as much as possible. A lot of clients describe the experience similar to intensified tweezing or threading, while some fall asleep during the procedure.

How long does it last?

Microblading will last anywhere from 1-3 years. However, skin type, lifestyle and maintenance all take in part of the duration. I recommend my clients to come back yearly for a color boost to freshen up the area and the color and keep it looking good as new.

What should I expect after my procedure?

After the procedure, the area of service will appear brighter or darker than what it is intended to look like. Some redness may show depending on each client, however, this will reduce in a few hours.

Around day 5-7 you may notice that some areas may appear very light or even to have lost pigment entirely after they have peeled, the epidermis will be thicker causing muting, hiding or diffusing of pigment underneath. the epidermis will normalize over the next 4-6 weeks and softened pigment should appear more clearly on surface of the skin.

At 4-6 weeks your brows will be fully healed. whatever pigment that does not return will be addressed at your touch up appointment or if you’d prefer darker, bolder brows we can always add more color or dimension during that appointment!

What will my Home Care be?

*All clients are required to be 18+ years of age, with or without parents’ consent.

  • Wash morning and night for 7 days with gentle cleanser! Wash within 4 hours of getting brows done. (Make sure to wash outside shower. Look in the mirror while washing so you can make sure to be extra gentle. Only wipe gently in the direction of hair growth, no circles or hard rubbing. wash with warm or cool water, and pat dry with clean paper towel)..
  • Keep dry (besides washing) until completely healed. AKA no scabbing or flaking left! Usually 10 days.
  • Clients still need to keep dry in the shower… steamy hot showers will cause the pores to open and scabs soften, so to be cautious, no extra steamy hot showers!! Avoid the water especially shampoo and conditioner running down… That’ll cause discoloration!
  • No excessive sweating
  • No sauna, hot tub, pool, ocean, etc.
  • Do not pick, rub, or scratch scabs! Avoid sleeping on face.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks
  • No anti-aging or acne products on them ever!! will cause fading very quickly. this is anything with chemical exfolliants such as retinol, glycolic acid,salisylic acid, etc.
  • Balm 3 times daily with Q-tip! If client is oily, 2 times daily will suffice. Use the balm until it’s gone, usually takes about 10 days or more!

  • If you tint your brows you will want to do so 72 hours before your appointment.
  • You must not use retin-a near the brow area 2 weeks before or after the procedure.
  • You will need to avoid water for 7 -10 days after! this includes excessive sweating, pools, lakes, salt water, and extreme sun exposure, so plan your vacations accordingly!
  • No Botox, fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels or anything of the like for at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure, and also two weeks after.
Avoid Doing Any Of These Before Your Procedure!

Doing any of the following will cause excessive bleeding during your procedure and will hinder your final result!! do not work out the day of your appointment.
