Frequently Asked Questions
"Does it hurt?"
Most clients report little to no pain. On a scale from 1 to 10, the highest pain that has ever been reported from a client to me personally is 0 to 2. I use a topical lidocaine initially to numb your brows, during the procedure I use a secondary numb to ensure that you will not feel any pain.
"How long does it last?"
Microblading is performed using semi permanent pigments that will fade out over time. On average they can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years depending on your lifestyle, skin type, and genetics. One way to lengthen the appearance of your brows is to stay out of the sun and wear sunblock.
"What is the process?"
The microblading process is as follows; before your appointment you answer a medical pre-qualification questionnaire, during your appointment your skin is analyzed and you receive a consultation this is the perfect time to ask any questions that you have about the procedure, next the brows are mapped using the golden ratio; your bone structure and facial composition, once you are satisfied with the shape, numbing is applied using a topical lidocaine, after 20 minutes the skin is numb and the microblading procedure begins. After the procedure you are sent home with an aftercare package including instructions on how to take care of your brows, you will need to wash and apply a healing balm for 10 days. After six to eight weeks you return for a brow perfecting touch up appointment.
"Can you work on my brows if I've had microblading in the past?"
I would need to analyze your brows and determine if they are faded enough and if they require a color correction. Also, I will need to see if I can work with the shape.
"What type of medical conditions would prevent me from receiving microblading?"
Autoimmune disorders, pregnant, nursing, hemophilia, heart condition, diabetes, or on any medication that causes your blood to thin.
