Q: What is Microblading?
A: It is semipermanent cosmetic tattoo. Using a manual hand tool to create fine, realistic looking hair strokes to build a fuller eyebrow. Results last 12-18 months with an annual "Refresh"appointment to maintain brows.
Q:How long do brows last?
A: 10-14 months is typical before needing a refresh, although skintype, lifestyle and skincare all play a role in How long your brows last. Some clients come in 5-7 months for a smalL touch uo which costs less, some come in 16-24 mOnth which cost more.we are working with skin which Has many VARIABLES.
Q: What is the process like?
A: Microblading (& most services) are done in 2 sessions. The cost can be paid in full or split in half, due at each session. The first session is 2 1/2 hours long, most of this time is used mapping out the shape then choosing your perfect color. Once we are 100% confident with your look we begin the tattooing- I use a lidocaine numbing cream during the process to help with any pain.
Q: How painful is it?
A: Microblading is moderately painful, if you can get a wax then you can handle this. Lidocaine gel is used during our "second pass". This means I do a few strokes without any numbing in order to maintain the outline we drew- once the foundation strokes are laid down numbing gel is applied and the rest of the session is completely pain free.
Q: HOW OFTEN DO I GET A “TOUCH UP” OR “REFRESH”?
A: WE RECOMMEND AN ANNUAL REFRESH 10-14 MONTHS AFTER YOUR INITIAL 2 APPOINTMENTS. A REFRESH INCLUDES 1 SESSION. MOST NEED 1 PER YEAR BUT IT DOES VARY CLIENT TO CLIENT. LIFESTYLE, SKINCARE, AND SKIN TYPE MAKE EVERYONES EXPERIENCE AND RESULTS DIFFERENT IN THE END. THE LONGER YOU WAIT TYPICALLY THE MORE WORK AND HIGHER COST WILL BE. (REFRESH PRICES ARE LISTED UNDER SERVICES.)
Q: Can anyone get Microblading done?
A: Yes, everyone can get Microblading but please keep in mind if you have very oily skin, enlarged pores, ultra sensitive skin, eczema, acne prone skin microblading may fade faster than clients with normal, dry skin. You may require extra sessions or combo brows to get desired look, but results can not be guarenteed. Skin tone is not a factor, people of all ethnicities can enjoy the benefits of cosmetic tattoo.
Q: If I have coarse thick eyebrow hairs, can I still get microblading?
A: Yes, but you may need an extra session or combo brows with shading to achieve best, more blended natural results. Results can not be guaranteed. Please have proper expectations before deciding to get tattooed.
Q: Can I get my tattoo wet?
A: Yes you can but you must be cautious not to get the brows too wet or expose them to shower steam for too long. You should try to keep your brows as dry as possible for the first 10 days otherwise. Please read the Aftercare section in full.
