Let us help you answer some very common questions that will help you.
How long does the procedure take?
The initial procedure takes 1.5-2 hours. Touch up sessions generally don’t take longer than 1 hour.
How long does it take to heal?
Usually, we see a full recovery about a week or two after the procedure, but that also depends on each person and their lifestyle. If you aren’t healed after 10 days please let us know so we can address the situation. If you are a very active person we recommend taking a break from exercise because sweat and oils can cause faded, and blurred strokes.
How long does microblading last?
After the initial session, we do a touch up with about 6-8 weeks. After that, we recommend a touch up every 12-18 months to keep the eyebrows looking fresh. The longevity will also depend on age, skin type, sun exposure, skin care products used, and how active a the person is.
How soon after the procedure can makeup be worn?
We recommend that you wait for at least 1-2 weeks, or until the area to be completely healed before you can apply any makeup to that area. You can wear eye makeup, foundation, lipstick or any other forms of makeup before then as long as it doesn’t get anywhere near the brows. Also, make sure that any makeup you use is below the brows to prevent any makeup from getting to the brow area.
Nothing on or near the brows for at least 1 week. You may wear eye makeup, and foundation, etc., but just don’t go near the brows!
What would disqualify someone from being a candidate for microblading?
The most common reasons are the following:
- under the age of 18
- currently breastfeeding
- prone to keloids
- undergoing chemotherapy
- have any major heart problems
- currently, have a viral infection or disease
If you have a condition that doesn’t fit the ones mentioned above but still feel like it would be an issue please let us know before booking your appointment so we can make sure there is no conflict.
Does microblading Hurt?
This is a tricky one because every person has a different pain tolerance. That said, we have never had any extreme reactions to the procedure when it comes to pain. Some compare it to plucking eyebrows, others say it’s very relaxing. To make sure you have the least amount of pain we apply lidocaine to the area that we will be working with. Even if you feel a little sting, we are sure you will be happy with how you look in the end and it will be totally worth it.
If I am on medications, can I get microblading done?
If you are on any medication we always recommend that you consult with your doctor or the doctor that prescribed that medication just to be safe and make sure that there won’t be any issues with the procedure, the results, effects of the medication, and most of all your health. Medicine changes the body’s chemistry, which can cause your skin and body to have a different reaction to the pigments. Therefore, pigment retention might not take so well for people who are on medications. Results vary for certain individuals. If you are on a temporary cycle of medication we recommend just waiting until you are done with the medication to do the procedure. If the medication you are on is permanent we recommend that you consult with your doctor before booking an appointment.
