Will Microblading work for me?
Microblading is ideal for anyone looking to enhance their eyebrows with natural hair like strokes, who want a fuller brow, more symmetrical brow or want to reshape their over plucked brows.
In these rare cases, the hair stroke eyebrow technique will not work as well for you:
- If you have extremely oily skin: The constant production of oil will cause the hair strokes to heal with a diffused, softer look. Your end result will look more powdery than defined. In this case please discuss with your artist about using an alternative technique.
- If you have little to no existing hair: your tattoo will appear more two-dimensional than clients who have more hair naturally.
- If you are a frequent smoker: your pigment may fade sooner.
- If you are iron deficient or anemic: your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure.
How do you choose the shape & color?
We choose your custom shape and color together. At the beginning of your appointment we will discuss what you want your new brows to look like (pictures help as references). Then I will come up with a design shape specific to your wants & your bone structure. I will take measurements to make them as symmetrical as possible.
Color is chosen by applying small amounts of different colored pigments to the skin near to your brows and selecting the best match for your skin tone, features and personal preference. The pigment will match your natural brow hair. So remember if you tint your brows regularly you must tint them 2-3 days prior to your appointment.
Is it painful?
To ensure maximum comfort during the procedure we use a topical numbing cream with 5% lidocaine prior and during your procedure. Since pain tolerance and sensitivity varies, we can’t say exactly how it will feel for you. The procedure uses a smaller needle than traditional tattooing and should hurt significantly less. Clients have related the procedure to eyebrow threading, plucking multiple hairs at once or a light scratching of the skin. You may experience more sensitivity if the procedure is performed during or near your menstrual cycle.
What is the difference between a cosmetic tattoo and a body tattoo?
Cosmetic tattoos are semi-permanent. The purpose of cosmetic tattooing is to enhance the natural features of a client. It is softer and more subtle – it is meant to be a natural-looking enhancement. Body tattoos use ink while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve pigments. These pigments are designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the artist to make changes to color and shape as you age or as beauty trends change.
How long does it last?
Microblading is considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, will fade over time and may need to be refreshed every 1-2 years. Frequency of sessions depends on a number of factors including: the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas. Please note that final results CAN NOT be guaranteed as each unique skintype will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. Multiple sessions are normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring a minimum of 2 visits. Additional sessions will be charged according to our current pricing.
How will my brows look in the future?
The majority of our clients' tattoos stay true to color and lighten naturally over time. However, in some cases colors may fade to different tones according to the individual’s response to the pigments. Microblading will eventually look softer and have more of a "powdered" look. This happens with all clients as the skin ages. To keep your hair strokes looking good, a refresher appointment is suggested every 1 to 2 years. After 2 years, a full session will be required. Results vary with each client.
