- What is Microblading? Microblading is the implantation of pigment into the epidermis (upper layer of skin) using angled needle. Feather, 6D, eyebrow embroidery are just some of the names used for this process.
- Is Microblading a tattoo? Microblading could be considered a tattoo, however, the main differences between tattoo and microblading are (A) microblading uses PIGMENT and tattoo uses INK & (B) microblading goes into the epidermis and tattoo goes deeper into the dermis which causes it to be more permanent.
- Does it hurt? Yes & No. Some people say it is painless, others say they feel “scratches” on the skin but don’t really find it unbearable. It really depends on your pain threshold. In Europe, the women use NO NUMBING cream and it is extremely popular there. Keep in mind, the more numbing we have to use the less retention you will have.
- What kind of numbing cream do you use? I have multiple types of anaesthetics for your maximum comfort. I talk you through the entire process in order to make sure that you are letting me know your comfort levels. If you want to know more about it in depth please schedule your one-on-one consultation, so I can answer ALL the questions you might have!
- How long does it last? If numbing is used, the results don’t last as long. Typically the results last anywhere from 6 months to 12 months. The final result really depends on your skin type, regimen & skin care products you use.
- How many sessions will I need? The initial session is what I like to call the “FOUNDATION” session. This is where we esentially outline what the shape of the brow will be. This session is almost like a spot test, for us to see how your body reacts to the pigment, how well it is retained and how the color heals on your skin. The second session “SHAPING & MODIFICATION” is really where you will see the complete look. Using the before and afters from your file, we can adjust depth, needle type, pigment darkness and stroke technique in order to successfully acheive the look you desire. If your skin is resistant you may have to have a semi-annual touch up vs. an annual touch up.
- What if it doesn’t last? If the pigment doesn’t last on your skin, there are other techniques that may work better such as “ombre” technique also known as Shadow Technique. This gives the illusion of filled in eyebrows vs. the natural stroke look with microblading. If you still have issues, speak with your technician to ensure your complete satisfaction or schedule a one-on-one consultation.
- How often do I need a touch up? If you required more than the typical anaesthetic then your microblading will be at higher risk for fading. I would recommend that you reduce the amount of water that you use while cleaning in order to allow more of the pigment to stay in the skin. It’s hard to say for certain because everyone takes care of their skin differently and no one is the same but If I had to estimate it could be any where from once to twice a year. This also depends on how much pigment you are implanting.
- How long does the process take? Typically if you apply the numbing cream approximately 45 minutes before the session – the total time is about 1-2 hours. If I apply the numbing while I am there, it could range from 2-3 hours. Each person is different and the time frame also depends on how much work your brows need.
- I booked my session, now what? Please be sure and register on my appointment site and be sure to include your address. I will be shipping you a small package with some steps you will need to do before your session. It will also have after care instructions. Once you receive your packet you will know exactly what to do.
