Who is a candidate for microblading?
Those who have hair loss (or no hair) in the brow area, those that have nice brows but wish for a more polished look, or those who just want to wake up and go without the hassle of makeup or “drawing on” the brows.
Who is NOT a good candidate for microblading?
Current smoker or history of smoking
Eczema or Psoriasis (in the eyebrow area)
Sunburn/Suntan (in brow area - must wait until skin returns to normal color)
On Blood Thinners
Pregnant or Breast feeding (unless cleared by doctor)
Certain skin types are NOT good candidates for microblading. If you have severe sun damage, bleed easily, have paper thin skin or excessive freckling, you may not have ideal results with microblading.
Will I still need to apply makeup on my brows?
This depends on your personal preference. You may want to add makeup to your microbladed eyebrows as your brows start to fade over time but before you get an annual color boost.
How long does the appointment take?
The initial appointment lasts approximately 1.5-2 hours. Whereas the 6 week touch up is 60 minutes.
How long do results last?
No guarantee can be made as to how long eyebrow tattoo results will last.
The pigment used in 3D brow microblading is semi-permanent and can last 12 months. The pigment will begin to fade around 8-10 months, so maintenance appointments (referred to as touch-up or color boost) are recommended. If you choose not to get a color boost, the pigment will fade naturally over time.
Factors that will cause your microbladed brows to fade faster:
Anti-aging skincare products on the brows
Does it hurt?
Most clients consider the procedure to be virtually pain free. Your eyebrow area will be numbed before the procedure and the artist will make sure you are as comfortable as possible during the entire appointment. However, take note that you may experience greater pain right before or during your menstrual cycle, so avoid scheduling near that time.
Is there any downtime?
No. You can resume your day as normal.
