YOU ASKED, WE ANSWERED.
Will my Microbladed brows look fake?
It is important to know that microblading is a procedure that strives to replicate your natural brow hair and not the 'look' of makeup application. Using hair-like strokes and shading, we mimic the density and hair flow of your natural brow hair. This method allows for the most natural results suited just for you and your unique brow pattern. Although those with oily skin and/or large pores aren't the best candidates for microblading, we offer brow shading techniques that are better suited for this skin type.
Will the procedure hurt?
We take every precaution necessary to ensure the microblading procedure is as pain-free as possible. Physician-grade topical anesthetics are utilized for your comfort.
How long is the recovery/ healing period?
You do not have to hide from the world until you are healed; clients can walk right out the door without redness or any visible signs of procedural work done to their face. During the 10 day- 2 week healing period, you should expect many changes to your brows.
Day 1: Slight sore/ tenderness
Day2-5: Dark brows (most clients typically enjoy their darker brow at this stage!)
Day 5-8: Scabbing brows (this is likely the least enjoyable stage. Brows may be itchy, flakey, and patchy looking as they heal)
Day 8-10: Disappearing brows (this stage is the most confusing as it will appear your brows did not hold any pigment and are gone/ very light. But have no fear, they will ACTUALLY re-surface and come back)
Day 10+: True healed brows. 40% lighter than immediately following the procedure (depending on the individual's colour retention within the skin)
Will Microbladed brows fade?
Your skin changes over time, and so will any semi-permanent makeup implanted into the skin. This natural fading process varies with each client and can take anywhere from 6 months to 3+ years to fade completely.
How long does the Microblading procedure take?
The procedure will take between 1.5 - 2.5 hours.
When will I see the final results?
A noticeable difference will be readily apparent immediately following the semi-permanent makeup procedure. Your final results will be visible after the healing process is fully completed, usually in about two weeks.
Are there any side effects during or after the procedure?
The eyebrow area will be sensitive and tender after the procedure, which is completely normal and should subside within 24-48 hours. During the procedure there is minimal bleeding, but this is very client dependant. Some people take blood thinners on a regular basis, so some bleeding can be expected. Those with very sensitive skin may experience more redness and minor swelling. Bruising is very rare, but if using blood thinners, some bruising may occur. This again, is client specific.
