1) How long is the overall session?
The procedure is split into 2 sessions. First session is set for 2 hrs. During this time you will be numbing, mapping out the brows, finding the perfect pigment color and pinning. Second session is 6-8weeks after to allow full healing process. This session will be from 30-60mins.
2) Does the Micro-Embrodiery application hurt?
We take every precaution necessary to ensure the micro-pigmentation application is as pain free as possible. A medical grade numbing agent is used for your comfort. Some clients find the procedure a little uncomfortable, whereas other clients report no discomfort at all.
3) Are there any side effects during or after the procedure?
During the procedure there may be some minor bleeding. This will depend on the client. If a person is taking blood thinners on a daily basis, then some slight bleeding may occur. Bruising is rare but if a person is on blood thinners, then bruising could occur. Some clients may have scabbing throughout the healing process whereas other may have nothing at all. There is usually some tenderness for a few days, a similar feeling to a sun burn. The color is much darker than you may expect for the first six to ten days, but not to worry it will fade down to a perfect match for your brows.
4) How long does it last?
Since micro-embrodiery pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan, have mature, excessive oily skin, sweat often and uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid with fade faster as your skin cells will resurface faster. Each individual's color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months. Clients can let the microbladed area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain.
