What is Microblading?

Microblading is a manual method used to deposit small amounts of ink in the superficial layer of the skin. It is considered to be a semi-permanent tattoo.

How long does it last?

Your tattoo will last as long as it’s maintained. Typically lasts 1-2 years.

How often do I need a touch up?

Touch ups are recommended every 6-12months, to keep the color fresh and the strokes crisp.

Does it hurt?

There is some discomfort associated with the procedure. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the area. Most people say the sensation is similar to getting your brows threaded.

How do I prepare for my procedure?

Avoid drinking caffeinated beverages or taking blood thinning medications 8 hours before your appointment to reduce bleeding.

What should I do after the procedure?

Follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your technician.

How long does it take?

The procedure takes roughly about two hours.

Do I need to take a day off work?

There’s no downtime associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but they will lighten up over the next 3-4 weeks.  This procedure will not prevent you from activities of daily living.

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 we consider the process complete.

What’s the process like?

Microblading is a two-step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch up four to six weeks after. After we take your before photo, we shape your eyebrows and decide on the color. Shortly after that, a topical anesthetic will be applied 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. The process is considered to be complete 4 weeks after the first touch up.

What can’t I do after the procedure?

You are advised to keep the skin clean and dry – that means no swimming, sweating or otherwise getting the area wet; no tanning or prolonged sun exposure; no picking or peeling the tattoo. You can still wash your hair and face and once they’re healed up, you treat them as your own.

What kind of pigment is used?

We use Li pigments. All the colors are pure and all natural and have been FDA approved. Colors are hand mixed to meet your individual requirements.

What if I don’t like it?

There are several things we can do. Your eyebrows can be modified to a point. A series of microdermabrasion can be performed over a course of time to speed up the fading time.
