Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know before microblading.

1

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, used for the purpose of reconstructing sparse eyebrows or simply to enhance already full brows. The proper ink is chosen and mixed to fit your exact skin tone to look the most natural and realistic. We then create small, hair-like strokes to perfectly mimic natural and gorgeous eyebrows.

2

Healed microblading results last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, results usually fade a little faster than those with dryer skin types. Touch-ups are required to maintain the microbladed look. First touch-up is included.

Microbladed brows typically take 6 weeks to fully heal. Within the first week the pigment will appear much darker, and your eyebrows will look very bold. Do not worry! This is part of the healing process and it means that you are healing properly. After the first week the eyebrows will begin to get lighter, as by now the scabbing should be taking place. This is also normal! Around week 2, most of the scabbing should be done, and you will begin to see your full and natural eyebrow shape come through. Let it heal naturally, and only begin to wash your eyebrows with a mild foamy anti-bacterial soap after 14 days.

There should be absolutely NO picking at your eyebrows for the first 10 days. The first 10 days are the most crucial for having healthy healed eyebrows. Let the epithelial crust and natural scabbing occur on its own. After the first two weeks, you are allowed to begin washing them again. Try to keep the area as dry as possible in the first 10 days. Do not swim in fresh, salt, or chlorinated pool water for at least 2-4 weeks following your procedure. Limit sun exposure for 14 days following the procedure. For the first two weeks, avoid:Water, cleansers, creams, makeup, heavy sweating in the brow area, tanning and heavy sun exposure, Facials, facial fillers, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion.
