How does microblading work?
Microblading is a process that involves tiny, fine-point needles (instead of a tattoo gun) that make up a small disposable blade on a handheld, manual tool that is used to scratch and deposit pigment simultaneously under your skin.
What do you mean, semi-permanent?
If you’re concerned about ‘permanent’ makeup, don’t be! Unlike permanent tattooing, microblading fades (without color distortion) and eventually disappears. This happens for a few reasons (1) the hand tool creates thinner strokes that aren’t ingrained as deeply into the skin, (2) the pigment used is semi-permanent and less concentrated, which allows your body to metabolize it so it fades away.
Is there any downtime?
None, you’ll be able to return to your regular routine the right after treatment. You may experience mild redness, and some itching and flaking for the first week after the treatment.
When will I see results?
Immediately! You’ll return after four or six weeks for a touch up and to make sure you’re happy with the result – this touch up is included with your initial treatment.
How long will results last?
Microblading usually lasts 1-3 years depending on your skin type (oilier skin types tend to fade the fastest). However, for best results we recommend a touch up every 12 months.
Does it hurt?
Microblading is a little uncomfortable, but not painful. Expect a scratching sensation on the brows during treatment.
Can I get microblading if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
We recommend consulting with your doctor prior to receiving microblading if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
