Day 1 (day of) you will encounter a slightly burning and sore feeling on or around the eyebrows.
Day 2 and 3 are very similar days. You might find the pigment has a bit orangy or reddish undertone, don’t panic, that’s just your brows starting its healing process.
By the end of day 4 that should be gone you and will start to slightly feel a bit itchy. The itchiness is part of the scabbing formation. Do not itch, scratch, peel or play with scab, allow it to peel naturally. The scabbing will be more to touch than visual.
After day 5, a lot of the pigment will start to lighten, the scabbing will start to naturally shed on its own and the eyebrows will appear much lighter.
We than have to wait for the full 30-45 days and allow the skin to naturally bring color back to the surface so we can begin our touch-up process.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- What is the difference between microblading and standard body tattooing?
The purpose of microblading is to enhance the features with what appears to be undetected, natural looking eyebrows. Microblading is more subtle – it is meant to be a natural-looking enhancement. Traditional body tattoos use electric tools and ink while microblading procedures involve pigments and an manual hand tool.
- Who is microblading for?
If you want to effortlessly look your best anytime, then microblading is for you! If you want to look younger healthier, and more vibrant permanent makeup does wonders! If you’re a busy mom, business woman or have an active lifestyle you’ll save hours every week not having to stand in front of the mirror slaving over applying makeup. Not to mention, you won’t have to worry about sweating it off during a workout or melting by the end of an evening out.
- Does it hurt?
Everyone has a different level of sensitivity. An anesthetic is applied for numbing during the procedure to alleviate discomfort. We ask that you arrive 15 min earlier prior to appointment time to allow time for pre numbing. Every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the duration of the procedure. Clients are usually pleased to discover that it is no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed or threaded. PLEASE NOTE: Having this service performed during your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort during your procedure. * If you are a frequent smoker, the topical anesthetics used during the treatment will not last as long. * If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, be aware that this may affect your sensitivity tolerance to the procedure.
- How long is the healing process?
It is normal to experience minimal swelling and tenderness following your procedure. It doesn’t take very long for it to disappear. Immediately following your treatment the pigment will appear darker than how it will appear once it has healed. Around week 2, the surface color naturally exfoliates to leave a softer color. During week 3 & 4 when the skin completes healing, you will see the pigment darken a bit. An enhancement session visit approximately 6 weeks after your initial appointment is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color and density in the shape.
- Do my existing eyebrows need to be shaved off?
Most definitely NOT! Please do not tweeze, thread, wax or modify your eyebrows in any way for as long as possible, and no sooner than two weeks. Your regular brow maintenance of tweezing, threading, waxing and/or tinting may continue once the brows have healed.
- How long does microblading last?
Microblading is a permanent makeup applied to the skin. The pigment will fade over time and we recommend to get a touch up annually to keep them looking their best.. There is no guarantee in how long it lasts as each individuals skin will respond differently. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: skin type, pigment selection, lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), chemical peels, etc. Please note that final results can not be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. We will re-evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and make any changes necessary.
-How many treatments are needed?
For microblading, at least two appointments are needed initially, at least 6-8 weeks apart. At the second treatment, we will assess the color retention and make adjustments as necessary. Everyone heals differently and at different rates.
- What factors will affect microblading?
Sun exposure: The sun will extremely soften the look of your pigment, so a physical sunscreen should be used (once healed) to prolong your enhancement. The regeneration of skin cells: The longer the regeneration takes, the longer the pigment holds. The speed at which the skin absorbs the pigment: The slower the absorption, the longer the pigment will hold. The choice of pigment color: Some colors may fade quicker than others, e.g. a blonde pigment may fade quicker than a dark brunette pigment. Bleeding during the procedure: Any bleeding during the tattooing procedure will reduce the amount of pigment absorption. Caffeine, alcohol, and certain medications act as blood-thinners and should avoided 48 hours prior to your appointment.
- What should I do before my eyebrow procedure?
If you have an ideal shape and color in mind, please bring a couple reference photos with you to your appointment. You may fill in your eyebrows as you normally would so we may take into consideration the shape you feel most comfortable with. If you regularly get your eyebrows shaped, waxed, threaded or tinted, please refrain from doing so within a week of your appointment. If there are any stray hairs that fall outside of our final shape, we can remove them. If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 30 days after the procedure. We require our clients to avoid any blood thinning medication for a minimum of 48 hours prior to their appointment. This includes Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, fish oil supplements, and Ibuprofen. NO Botox for 4 weeks prior to microblading and No Botox 4 weeks after microblading (We recommend that it's best to wait until after your touch up heals to get Botox, as an educated injector will take your new brows into consideration when choosing where to inject.) If you have been on prescription Accutane in the past, you MUST wait at least one year before considering this procedure. It is highly recommended that you avoid SUN and TANNING BED exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. If you show up for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the pigment with it.
- How will I look immediately after?
Your brows will appear darker and more intense than expected for the first week or so. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. Redness and swelling is minimal. Please view our detailed Before & Aftercare Instructions.
- What should I do after the procedure?
Please review our detailed Pre & Post Care Instructions. It is highly beneficial to follow these instructions to ensure a comfortable healing process and to achieve the best possible results. DO NOT rub or pick the healing area as the color will peel off prematurely, and avoid extreme heat, sweating, and contaminated bodies of water (such as saunas, hot tubs, steam rooms, pools, lakes, and places with hot humidity, etc.).
- What should I know about long term care?
* The color will lighten over time. We recommend an annual touch up to keep brows looking their best. Fading greatly depends on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, pigment color used, broken capillaries, iron deficiency, and if any chemical peels were done after your procedure. * If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI or other medical procedure, please inform the technician that you have had an iron-oxide cosmetic procedure . Careful application must be taken to avoid affecting the microbladed area. * If you are planning to have laser treatments, tell your laser specialist to avoid the pigmented area. Laser may cause pigment to turn black.
- Will microblading work well for me?
If you have extremely oily skin, the microblading technique may NOT work well for you. The constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdered instead of a crisp hair stroke appearance. If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment will fade sooner.
-Do you tattoo men's eyebrows?
We are happy to accommodate consultations for men interested in microblading.
