FAQ

?  What is Microblading?
Microblading is a cosmetic procedure used to enhance the appearance of eyebrows. It involves using a handheld tool with tiny, fine needles to create small incisions in the skin, depositing pigment into the upper layers of the eyebrows. This technique creates individual hair-like strokes that mimic the natural look of eyebrows. Microblading is used to fill in sparse brows, reshape or redefine the eyebrows, or create a fuller and more defined appearance. It is a semi-permanent procedure and requires regular touch-ups to maintain the desired results.

What is Nano Brows
Nano brows, also known as nano blading or nanoblading, is a more advanced form of eyebrow cosmetic tattooing. It is similar to microblading but uses even finer, nano-sized needles. The technique involves implanting pigment into the skin using a digital device or pen-like tool with small, precise needles. Nano brows create ultra-fine hair-like strokes that appear more realistic and natural compared to microblading. This method is recommended for those with thin or sensitive skin, or those who prefer a more subtle and realistic eyebrow enhancement. Like microblading, nano brows are semi-permanent and require periodic touch-ups to maintain the desired look.

What is Ombre Brows

Ombre brows, also known as powder brows or shading, is another technique used for eyebrow tattooing. Unlike microblading or nano brows which create fine hair-like strokes, ombre brows achieve a soft, gradient effect that mimics the look of filled-in eyebrows with makeup. The technique involves depositing pigment into the skin using a machine or manual hand tool, which creates a more solid and defined appearance. The front of the brows is lighter and gradually transitions to a darker shade towards the tail, giving a subtle and natural-looking ombre effect. Ombre brows typically last longer than microblading or nano brows, with results lasting up to 2-3 years before touch-ups are needed.

?  How long does it lasts?
Brows tattoo typically lasts between one and three years. However, the longevity of the results can vary depending on various factors such as individual skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare. Touch-up sessions are often recommended every six to twelve months to maintain the desired appearance.

?  Does it hurt?

Most clients report little or no pain! We use a topical anesthetic before the procedure to numb the affected area.

 

?  How long is the appointment?

The microblading procedure itself typically takes around 2 hours to complete. However, the actual duration may vary depending on factors such as the expertise of the microblading artist, the desired brow shape, and the client's individual needs and preferences.

 

The procedure involves several steps, including consultation, eyebrow mapping, numbing the area, and the microblading process itself. The microblading artist will use a specialized hand-held tool with fine needles to create tiny, hair-like strokes and deposit pigment into the skin.

 

While the microblading process may seem time-consuming, it's important to remember that this is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that can last for months or even years, so it's crucial for the artist to take their time to ensure the best possible outcome.

 

Before scheduling your microblading appointment, make sure to allocate enough time for the procedure, including any necessary consultation and aftercare discussions with your microblading artist.


?  How should i prepare for my appointment?
 
Beforecare for microblading typically includes the following:

 

1. Do not take Alcohol, Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.

2. Avoid power shakes and power greens, Fish Oil, and "Hair, Skin, Nail" supplements 24 hours prior to procedure.

3. Discontinue Glycolics, Chemical Peels and Retin-A 4 weeks prior. 

4. Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure. Check your moisturizer, facewash BB or CC creams and makeup primers for anything that says acid.

5. No brow waxing or tinting one week before.

6. You have to be off any kind of Accutane for 6 months at least. 

7. If you use botox or filler, make sure it's done 2 weeks before or after.

8. Avoid intense sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks leading up to the procedure. Sunburned or excessively tanned skin can be more sensitive and may not hold the pigment as well.

9. Do not pluck, wax, or tint your eyebrows for at least one week before the procedure. This will give your microblading artist a clear understanding of your natural brow shape and hair growth patterns.

10. If you regularly use skincare products that contain retinoids, AHA or BHA exfoliants, or topical prescriptions, stop using them on the brow area for at least one week prior to the procedure. These products can make the skin more sensitive and affect the healing process.

11. If you have a history of cold sores or fever blisters, talk to your doctor about starting antiviral medication a few days before the procedure to prevent any outbreaks, as the lip area may be affected during microblading.

12. Ensure that your face is clean and free of any makeup, oils, or lotions on the day of the procedure. This will provide a clean and sterile canvas for the microblading process.

 

*Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle as well.

It is essential to consult with your microblading artist for their specific before care instructions, as these can vary based on individual needs and preferences. Following the recommended before care guidelines will contribute to a successful and well-healed microblading procedure.

?   What is the after care?

FOLLOW THESE AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY

 

To Avoid Swelling and itchiness 

 Nothing on the brows for the first 24hrs. After 24hrs, you may apply grape seed oil or aquaphor as needed to relief dryness or itchiness. We do not recommend vaseline as it might clog the pores which may lead to rash or break outs and that'll interfere with the healing process. 

 

Avoid

 Any type of skin peels or products containing Retin-A and glycolic over the pigmented area

 Any makeup over the pigmented area.

 Hot steamy showers or long baths. Keep your face away from the shower head. Avoid direct water on the brows as it can soften the brows and cause premature peeling

 Avoid soap, cream or lotions on the pigmented area. Wash and apply around the area.

 No swimming, saunas or hot tubs for 10-14 days after the procedure.

 

Do Not

 Pick, peel, or scratch. This could cause scarring and/or removal of colour.

 Do not touch the area except for applying Tattoo Aftercare Balm or Antibiotic Ointment.

 

Note

 Colour will appear very intense and dark immediately after your procedure. The colour is sitting on top of the skin. Once the skin starts healing or flaking, the colour will fade considerably as it heals beneath the skin.

 Color will gradually become darker after 3 weeks and the final colour should not be considered for approximately 6-8 weeks after the final visit. Do not be alarmed if it appears that most of the color is flaking off. Some of this crusting will appear on your Q-tip- this is normal. This is the superficial colour and is part of the natural healing process. 

 The sun can cause fading to the pigmented area. Always wear a light coat of sun block on pigmented areas.

 

If you suspect any signs of infection (including abnormal redness, swelling, etc) contact your doctor ASAP

 

?  How long does it take to heal?

The healing process for microblading typically takes about 4-6 weeks. However, it's essential to note that the initial healing phase, where the skin heals and the pigment settles, takes around 10-14 days.

 

During the first few days after the procedure, you may experience redness, swelling, scabbing, and tenderness in the treated area. The color of your brows may also appear darker than expected initially. This is because the pigment needs time to settle and for the top layer of skin to slough off naturally.

 

Around the second week, the scabs will start to flake off, revealing a lighter and softer color. At this stage, slight patchiness or unevenness may be visible, but this is normal as the skin continues to heal.

 

After about 4-6 weeks, the healing process should be complete, and the true color and shape of your microbladed brows will be apparent. It's important to note that individual healing times can vary, and following the aftercare instructions provided by your microblading artist can greatly affect the healing outcome.

 

Remember to be patient throughout the healing process and avoid picking, scratching, or exposing the treated area to excessive moisture or sunlight. It's also crucial to attend any follow-up appointments recommended by your microblading artist to ensure optimal results.
