Facts and Questions

What is Microblading?

Microblading is also known as Eyebrow Embroidery, which is a procedure that creates illusion of strokes that look like real hair.  Unlike traditional tattoos, it is less invasive surfacing the first layer of the epidermal skin, and is semi-permanent.  Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct or define their sparse, over plucked, thinning brows from age, uneven appearance of the brows, and or to cover up their old thin brow tattoo.  The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine micro-needles to help etch each 'hair' stroke into the skin, giving a natural and realistic look.  Pigments are determined by the technician to match the natural or desired brow color of each clients skin tone.  Microblading is perfected through three steps; consult, first initial Microblading, and a 4-8 week touch up.  Depending on the skin type of each client and skincare routine, Microblading typically lasts 1-2 1/2 years.

How long does it take?

For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take up to about 2 1/2 hours.  At the beginning of the session, the brow technician will shape, style, and outline the client's brows; usually takes about an hour.  Once the client is satisfied with the shape, style, and outline, the microblading procedure will start.   The technician will move forward with adding topical anesthetic numbing cream to the brows, and the numbing process takes up to 20 minutes.  During the process of numbing, we will discuss and view pigment selection on the clients skin.  The Initial Microblading may last up to 40 minutes, including the last remaining 10 minutes of letting the pigment set it.  It is advised that clients will need a 4 week follow up for minor touch up.  Please plan in advance before booking an appointment as the process will take approximately 6-8 weeks for full effect of Microblading.

Is the touch up necessary?

Yes, touch up's are necessary to ensure full effect of eye brow pigments on each client.  Certain areas of the brow may not pick up the pigments as well, pigment color may need to be adjusted, or oily clients will need a deeper pigment color due to the oils lightening the pigment, and the touch up helps refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color.

*Yearly routine touch up varies from one client to another, and are based on how the pigment will gradually fade over time.  

How long does it take to heal?

It typically takes up to 24 hours for your skin to calm down from swelling.  The pigment color will appear very dark and will fade by up to 30% as it heals.  In the next 3-7 days, you'll notice the eyebrows will continue to be dark, and there will be slight scabbing and raised areas on parts of the brows.  Do not pick at the scabs/raised areas as this will damage the skin and the outcome of your Microbladed brows; let it fall off on its own.  The healing process takes up to 14 days, and about a month for the pigment to fully set in.  You will notice the pigment color will be very light after two weeks of healing, and a hue of an opaque milky look of your skin is common in tattooing, and you'll start to think the color faded, but it doesn't.  The process of this is due to the skin still healing, and the full color will be revealed once healed after 30 days of a full cycle of cellular regeneration.  *It is very important to follow the post treatment listed.

Is it painful?

The pain level for the procedure could be mild, medium, to none.  Prior to the procedure, the brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and will reapply as needed during the procedure.  Everyone responds differently to anesthetic, and to the pain.  Most clients explain the feeling of the procedure as light cat scratches, and or a slight burning sensation similar to sunburn. 

How long does it last?

Microblading last between 1-2 1/2 years, depending on your skin type (normal, oily, dry, and aged skin).  Skincare routine will also affect how long the pigments will last; via facial scrubs, tanning, and products containing AHA or Glycolic Acid.  It is advised to gently wash the brow area if needed with a mild soap, and to avoid scrubbing, and or products containing AHA or Glycolic Acid around the brows.  Use facial sunscreen over your brows for longer lasting eyebrows.  To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is recommended every 12-18 months. 

Who is not suitable for the procedure?

Microblading is not suitable for the following candidates who have heart conditions or use heart medications, have a skin disease or irritations, if you are using Accutane, , have had botox in the last 2 weeks, sun damaged skin or have gotten a tan or chemical peel in the last 2 weeks, allergic to lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocain, tetracaine or epinephrine, a serious medical condition/s that may require a physicians note, pregnant and or nursing.  *For oily skin, Microblading will be suggested for more than one additional touch up to help retain the pigment.  Oily skin is known to not grab onto the pigment well.   Please discuss with your physician first before deciding to undergo with this procedure.  Microblading is considered a tattoo, and just like wine or sushi consumption, it is a personal choice to do so when deciding for this procedure.

Risk and complications?

All proper precautions for safety with the procedure is by using sterilized equipment, new needles, and in a sanitized environment.  When clients follow our pre and post care instructions provided/listed on the website, there should be minimal risks or complications.  Although reaction to pigments are rare, it could be possible for certain individuals.  We suggest a pigment patch test 5-7 days prior to scheduling an Initial Microblading appointment for those who have high skin sensitivities.  *Typical skin sensitivity are of topical makeup products, gold, silver, nickel, and or hair dyes.  Other risk of the procedure may include, but limited to infections, allergic, and other reaction(s) to other products applied during and after procedure, fanning or spreading of pigment (pigment migration), and or fading in color.  The technician will fully discuss this upon your appointment.

What if I don't like it?

As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly.  We always advise clients to do their research, outweigh the pros and cons so they can best understand the procedure when making their decision.  As stated above under "How long does it take?," the brow technician will shape, style, outline client's brows until the client is satisfied with their choice and approves for the Microblading session to start.  If clients are truly not satisfied, Microblading is semi-permanent and will gradually fade sooner than typical tattoos.
