Q: WHAT IS EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
A: Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that uses a fine blade to place semi-permanent pigment into the surface of the skin. The effect very closely mimics the look and detail of actual brow hairs, creating a bolder, natural-looking brow . This procedure does not require a tattoo gun and is quite different from a traditional tattoo in terms of procedure, permanency, colour, detail, and overall look. Microblading is simply the best way to create natural-looking brows. It can also be referred to as eyebrow embroidery or feathering.
Q: HOW LONG DOES THE SEMI-PERMANENT EYEBROW LAST?
A: Your brows will last between 1-2 years. We recommend that our clients come in for an annual touch-up to keep the brow colour looking fresh and to ensure the strokes are defined.
Q: HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
A: The initial procedure takes approximately 2.5 hours and includes brow shaping, customized colour matching, numbing and microblading. The first half of the appointment is the consultative component of the procedure and the second half is the microblading itself. Touch ups take about 90 minutes.
Q: DOES THE PROCEDURE HURT?
A: A topical anesthetic is used to numb the brow area prior and during the procedure. You can expect some minor level of discomfort during the procedure similar to threading.
Q: WHAT IS THE HEALING PROCESS LIKE?
A: The first week after tattooing your brows will appear much bolder and darker, this is normal and will lighten up as they heal. Within a few days, the lines that we’ve placed throughout your brows will begin to scab. This is completely natural, but it could look a little patchy at first. To relieve the brows of itchiness or dryness, you may use Aquaphor, coconut oil or grape seed oil. Once the dry skin falls off naturally, the lines will begin to appear darker and your brows will take a fuller, more natural look within a few weeks.
Q: WILL I REQUIRE A TOUCH-UP?
A: Most clients require a touch-up appointment within 2 months of the initial procedure to fill in any areas of the skin that may not have fully retained the pigment – this is completely natural. The touch-up takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours and is included in the price of your initial procedure.
Q: DOES EVERYONE’S SKIN HEAL SIMILARLY FROM THE PROCEDURE?
A: Everyone’s skin is different and therefore may heal differently from this procedure. Depending on your skin type and how well your body heals from small scabs, some areas might retain pigment better than others. Based on our expertise, we will do our best to ensure pigment is placed well within the skin to achieve exceptional results. A small percentage of women might need two touch-ups instead of one based on how the skin heals. Please be patient and know that we are committed to getting you the results you want. Oilier skins can have more pigment loss as well as more diffused healed strokes, and may require additional touch ups.
Q: AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
A: Microblading is a safe and reliable procedure and suitable for most people. However, if you have any of the following conditions, please consult with your doctor before attempting this procedure and bring a doctor’s note with you to your appointment. If you have previously microbladed or tattooed brows you must send photos of your brows prior to booking your appointment. If you have any of the following conditions and do not have a legitimate doctor’s note with approval, we cannot perform this procedure for you. There are no exceptions to this rule.
· Pregnant and/or breast-feeding

· Please have any Botox injections around the brows done at least two weeks in advance of microblading.
