How long does Microblading or Microshading take?
Your first appointment will take approximately 2-3 hours, though generally it is closer to 2, it is best to book yourself enough time in case it goes over. This is not something you want to rush… Your touch up appointment 4-8 weeks later is usually done in 1.5-2 hours.
How long does Microblading last?
Results do vary depending on your skin type and lifestyle, in most cases the results last 1-2 years.
Will I need more than one touch up?
Occasionally some people do require a second touch up procedure, this is generally due to having an oilier skin type, a very sparse natural brow, from not following after care instructions thoroughly or skin that is a bit more resistant to accepting brow pigment.
Is there an extra charge for touch ups?
Your first touch up in included in the original price of the Microblading session. If another touch up is required there is a small tray fee of $50-$80 charged depending on how much work is needed at that session. This touch up must be done within 6 months of your initial procedure.
Does Microblading hurt?
No, because I use a numbing agent twice during the session, the majority of my clients report not feeling a thing. Some have even fallen asleep and said it was very relaxing. Rarely the odd client does not numb well and has stated that it is a little bit uncomfortable and related it to cat scratches.
What should I avoid so my Microbladed brows do not fade quickly?
Immediately after your session and for two weeks you need to avoid getting your brows too wet, no sweating, saunas, hot tubs, salt water, steamy showers etc. Also, it’s very important to avoid sun exposure, any products containing Aloe, Retinoids or Retinol, AHAs, Glycolic Acids. To prevent infection, for one week after you also need to avoid the use of makeup near the brows, this includes foundations and powders, brow pencils and powders. The brow area needs to be treated like any wound, you need to keep it very clean and allow it to breath.
After your brows have healed you need to continue avoiding sun exposure by applying SPF, as well as avoiding the products listed above as they will fade the tattoo.
