Is the procedure painful?
A variety of topical anesthetics are used to numb the treatment area to address and relieve any discomfort that would be caused. Each person has a different pain threshold and level of tolerance and therefore the anesthetic process is customized for every client.
How long is the healing process? Are there any restrictions?
The healing period is approximately 7-14 days if the after-care instructions are followed closely. Healing will also vary from person to person depending on their skin type.
How long is the procedure/appointment?
The appointment can range from 2-3 hours depending on the service. The majority of that time is allocated for prep, color selection, drawing in shapes and decision making. The actual procedure is approximately one hour.
How will you choose the color and shape?
With a wide range of pigments to choose from, a specific shade will be selected depending on your skin and hair color. Eyebrows are carefully measured and a shape is drawn that suits your natural face shape. Before starting you must approve the final shape.
May I get the procedure area wet?
For at least 2 weeks, the site of the procedure should be kept dry to improve color retention results.
May I wear makeup after the procedure?
You are able to wear makeup everywhere else but not directly on the procedure area for at least 2 weeks or until the area is fully healed.
Is the touchup necessary?
Touchups are highly recommended to provide the maximum pigment retention.
What is the microblading process like from beginning to end?
The first step of the process is the application of a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort, followed by the procedure. The next step is drawing in the shape with a removable pencil which is the longest and most important part of the process. This is the point of the process that the shape is customized and agreed upon. After the procedure, there are after-care instructions that need to be followed for a week, but no additional special care is required afterwards. A touch up should be done approximately 6-8 weeks after.
