What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo performed with a small, handheld tool, using a feather stroke technique to produce the appearance of fuller eyebrows or to enhance the natural features of the face.
How is microblading different from traditional tattooing?
Microblading is a softer and more subtle cosmetic tattoo than older methods. Traditional tattoos use ink, while cosmetic procedures involve pigments. These pigments are designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired to allow the artist to make changes with the client’s natural facial changes.
How long does it last?
Microblading lasts anywhere from 1-3 years, depending on your skin type and lifestyle.
How long does a session take?
This depends on what service you are receiving. Our free consultations are about thirty minutes or less. If you are a first-time client, you can expect your appointment to last around 3 1/2. Touch up appointments range between 1 and 2 hours.
What is the upkeep?
On a day to day basis there is zero upkeep, just get up and go!
However, if you want to keep your brows looking fresh, touch-ups are highly suggested.
Having your artist preform regular maintenance on your brows will keep the price and duration of your session down!
Will it damage my natural eyebrow hairs?
Not at all! Studies show that microblading actually helps stimulate new hair growth!
Does it hurt?
We do all that we can to ensure the process is as comfortable as possible by applying
a topical anesthetic part way through your procedure.
Like any PMU procedure, some clients may feel discomfort,
others experience a sneezing sensation or watery eyes.
(If you are a smoker, or your appointment falls during
your menstrual cycle, your pain threshold may be lower.)
What can I do to make my microblading last longer?
Retinols, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, vitamin C serums,
and other acids can damage the pigment’s integrity. Products labeled “anti-aging” often contain these acids that can cause fading. Oily skin types are not as effective at retaining pigment.
