Frequently Asked Questions
Will it hurt?
An effective topical anesthetic is used to maximize your comfort during the cosmetic procedure, however pain tolerance varies from client to client. Receiving the procedure during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity. On a scale of 1-10, most clients experience 2-3. Most clients describe the pain level as minimal and find tweezing and threading more uncomfortable in comparison.
IS MICROBLADING RIGHT FOR ME?
Microblading heals best on normal to dry skin types. Microblading may not work well on clients with more oily skin types, large pores. On those with oily skin types and larger pores, results may appear softer and more powdery. However, we will suggest a different technique for those who do have more oily skin and results will be just as stunning.
Clients with super thin skin, Rosacea, or Keloids cannot receive Microblading. Powder/Shading technique is sometimes suggested as an alternative method on a case by case basis.
DO I NEED A CONSULTATION BEFORE GETTING MICROBLADING?
While not required, consultations are free of charge and offered to anyone who would like to discuss their tattoo before booking an appointment.
it is required that you come in for a consultation if you are in need of correction work or have had your brows tattooed elsewhere.
How long does procedure take?
The initial session takes approximately 2-3 hrs from the moment you walk in to the completion of your beautiful new brows. We spend the first hour designing your new brows and clarifying any questions you may have. There’s no down time! Most go about their normal day when they leave their appointment. The follow-up perfecting session takes approximately 1.5 -2 hrs. This is done normally within 8 weeks.
Will it look natural?
Absolutely! The technique used creates realistic, simulated hair strokes that look just like REAL HAIR! It’s important you choose the right artist that can give you this realistic look. Your brows can be as big and bold or as soft and subtle as you like!
Are there some clients that cannot retain the pigment?
Yes this does happen. Some people have highly effective immune systems that reject the pigment, and some just have highly effective skin healing. It’s very rare, but it’s important that all clients understand this is a possibility and in most cases there is no way for us to know if this will take place prior to the work being done. Occasionally, we will recommend a third appointment for further touch-up using a different technique called shading/ombre effect at additional cost. If the client were still retaining very little pigment after the third appointment, we would not recommend another touch-up, as it might be too much for the skin.
