Answers to Common Questions

What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo form of makeup. I create the most natural look for your eyebrow by using a hand tool with a small blade to create individual hair strokes.

How long does microblading last?
Cosmetic tattooing is designed to fade over time. Factors such as skin type, lifestyle, age, metabolism, medications, and pigment color affect the longevity of the tattoo. The sun and some kinds of lighting (tanning beds) can affect the rate at which these pigments are broken down. To take care of your brows follow the aftercare instructions and touch-up your brows every 12-18 months (as needed). Touch-ups are normal and expected for Permanent Cosmetics.

Does microblading hurt?
Topical 5% Lidocaine is used to make you comfortable during your Cosmetic procedure, however pain tolerance varies from client to client. Having the procedure during your menstrual cycle may increase your sensitivity.

What is the difference between microblading and combo brow?
Microblading will give you the most natural look with single hair strokes mimicking hair. Combo brow is a combination of microblading and a powder fill to give you more of a makeup look and to add the illusion of density.

How long is the healing time?
Everyone heals at different rates but on average about 10 days. You may leave your appointment a little red but that is normal and will go away. You do not have to take time off work.

How do you choose my eyebrow shape?
At your appointment, we will discuss what you like and dislike about your eyebrows. I will come up with a design shape to best suit your wants and bone structure. I make measurements to make them as symmetrical as possible. You will also see what I have drawn up for you to make sure this is the look you are going for before I begin the procedure.

How do you choose the color for my eyebrows?
I apply small amounts of different pigment to your skin near your eyebrows and select a best match for your skin tone. We choose a color together by applying small amounts of different colored pigments to the skin near to your brows and selecting the best match for your skin tone, features and personal preference. So, if you tint your eyebrows regularly you must tint them 3 days prior to your appointment. Also, your color will fade about 30% after your first visit.

What factors will affect my Cosmetics?

Oily Skin: Increased oil production can cause hairstrokes to blur and heal lighter and powdery.

Smoking: Smokers may notice that their Semi-Permanent Cosmetics will fade faster.

Anemia and iron deficiency: Your body will absorb these iron based pigments more quickly.

Sun exposure: Increased exposure to the sun will cause premature fading. You will want to use a special sunscreen for your Semi-Permanent Cosmetics; I recommend Color Guard. You can find it on Amazon.

Age and metabolism: The Faster your metabolism the faster the pigment will fade.

Bleeding during the procedure: Excessive bleeding during your procedure will greatly affect how your body retains pigment. While this is not entirely in our control, it is important that you follow before care instructions to help minimize bleeding. This includes avoiding blood thinning medications, alcohol, and caffeine 24 hours before your procedure.

Can I get microblading done over scars?
Yes, just no keloids or moles.

Can I get microblading done if I've had permanent makeup done previously?
In this case, you will have to make a consultation appointment or send me a clear photo of your tattoo for me to determine if I can go ahead with a procedure or if you need removal.
