Microblading is a temporary eyebrow tattoo consisting of individually placed hair-like strokes resulting in a realistic, fuller eyebrow.
Microblading is perfect for anyone who wants a fuller looking eyebrow whilst still looking natural. Your eyebrows will look great without makeup, but for those who still prefer to fill them in, you will then have a general outline making it much easier and less time consuming.
It typically lasts 1-3 years depending on skin type and skincare routine. We recommend annual touch ups to keep your brows looking their best.
The pain level for microblading is moderate to none. Before the procedure, we will numb you, but in order to do so, we will have to lightly exfoliate your skin with a small row of needles. This has been compared to plucking eyebrows. After that, you should be completely numb for the rest of the session. In fact, it is common for clients to fall asleep during the procedure.
Each procedure can take 2-3 hours. Each client will require different care and attention in specific areas, so it will vary client to client.
It takes 7-14 days for the eyebrows to heal and a month for the pigment to fully settle. Direcly after the procedure, the eyebrows will appear slightly red and darker than the finished product. During healing, your eyebrows may have slight scabbing. Do not pick the scabs as this may remove pigment and affect your desired result.
Yes, the touch up session is critical. Everyone's skin heals differently and your eyebrows will more than likely need to be adjusted once fully healed. Changes can be made if desired (shape, color, thickness, length, etc.) to perfect the final outcome. This is especially important for clients with little to no eyebrows because we will need to build up your brow by layering hair strokes to achieve a more full and realistic look. Touch ups are booked 1-3 months after your initial appointment.
