Frequently Asked Questions
Are you certified ?
Yes. I am a certified Microblading Artist
What exactly is Microblading?
It is a semi-permanent makeup method; the technique is natural feathering of hair-like strokes directly on the skin’s surface that creates natural-looking eyebrows. 3D Eyebrow Microblading creates the background and fills in the areas of the eyebrows that looked empty so that a full and complete look is accomplished. The “3D” effect added realism to the end result. Unlike a traditional eyebrow tattoo, 3D Eyebrow Microblading does not leave a flat, dull and fake look that tattoos leave behind and is a MUCH SAFER treatment. The 3D Eyebrow Microblading method can fill in sparse brows or create an entire brow, which makes it the perfect procedure for Men and Women.
What is a Gradient Eyebrow Microblading?
Instead of creating hair strokes eyebrow like Microblading, this technique is natural shading a gradient effect from the beginning of the brow to the end starting from light and fading to dark, give your brow the sharp yet natural look
Does it hurt?
We get mix reviews on pain. Everyone has a different level of sensitivity so topical anesthetics are applied before and during the treatment to alleviate any sensation or discomfort. Some clients naturally feel one brow sorer than the other. You will hear a scratch noise/ sensation throughout. Music is usually played during the procedure, however feel free to bring your own ear phones and music to distract you
Is it safe ?
Absolutely. Sterilized, disposable needles and supplies are used during the process.
Will I need a touch up?
Most likely. Within a week of your first treatment the color will fade significantly and over the next four to six weeks can continue to fade as much as 50%. This is considered an extremely positive occurrence as it allows you time to reflect on your shape and color. After this period your follow-up appointment is carried out. At this point any changes you would like to make are discussed
How often do I need a touch up?
In order to keep your eyebrow tattoo results looking fresh, we recommend a touch up every year.
How long does it last?
It will last as long as it’s maintained. Approximately 1-2 years
Why do I need a touch up if it's semi-permanent?
Because color is implanted in the facial area there tends to be more fluid circulation than other parts of the body. Your face sees the most wear of any piece of you—exposure to the sun, food, facial products—the list goes on and on. All of these things cause permanent color to fade, this is why you need a touch up.
How long does it take to heal?
Healing time varies from individual to individual. Usually, it takes about a week to ten days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off. Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin. A good month should pass before I consider the process complete.
What's the process like?
Eyebrow tattoo is a two-step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch up between 4 to 6 weeks after. After taking your before photo, I will draw the brow design in pencil so you get an idea of shape and form. (Please note that nobody’s face is totally symmetrical and you need to be realistic with your expectations. There is no point in trying to make the eyebrows identical or match a photo of your favorite celebrities' eyebrows if your face shape looks nothing like theirs.). Once we have agreed on a final shape (ultimately it is your decision – but I will always voice my opinion on what I think suits you aesthetically), I will shape your eyebrows then we will decide on the color. Shortly after that, a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure comfort. Once you’re numb, the pigment is deposited. During healing, it's normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up in place.
!It is very important to follow the after care instructions for the best healed results!
Post treatment care makes 50% of the total treatment success. Conscientiously adhere to the given advice because if not, you can risk losing up to 80% of the drawn strokes.
At the end of your session, we will provide you with an after care kit that has everything you need for the 7-10 day healing process. This may vary per skin type, but 10 days recommended for the best results.
IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR THE FIRST 7-10 DAYS: Gently wipe the treated area with an aftercare wipe 2 hours after the procedure, allow the skin to dry and then apply a thin layer of the after care ointment, repeat every 2 hours the first day Days 2 & 3, gently dab the treated area with the wipes prior to applying the provided ointment, make sure the skin is always dry before applying. Apply aftercare ointment 3-5 times a day for normal skin, 1-2 times daily for oily skin.
Avoid getting the treated area wet for 7-10 days, No sweating or excessive exercise for 7 days. Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the brow area for 7 days No facials, Botox, chemical peels or microdermabrasions for 4 weeks No major sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks THE
What to expect?
HEALING PROCESS WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST 6-8 WEEKS: The first week is going to be gnarly. Here’s a list of thoughts that will probably cross your mind: OMG these are way too dark and way too thick What have I done??? Why are they staring back at me? I can’t go out like this.. I look crazy. The good news is, the Intensified color and slight redness are part of the initial stages of healing and will only be from days 2-5. Don’t worry, don’t freak out.. just be patient. This is the initial shock phase and we ask that you just simply trust the process.
After 7 days, the brows will fade about 20% and shrink about 10% to a much more natural look. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal peeling or flaking may take place.
Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process. Healing will vary with skin type, but you may experience color fading and loss of hair strokes. This is completely normal. We like to include a complimentary touch up session where we can assess your healing and fill in any missing strokes as well as give it a color boost. We can then recommend the best follow up timeline for future appointments.
PLEASE NOTE: Eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing for the first 10 days. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures. Permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have: Pregnant or nursing Diabetic Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor) Viral infections and/or diseases A Pacemaker or major heart problems Had an Organ transplant Skin irritations near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.) Sick (cold, flu, etc.) Had Botox in the past 2 months Used Accutane in the past year For any additional questions or concerns please call or message us. Thank you!
