The pigment used in this procedure is semi-permanent, therefore the procedure typically lasts up to 12 months or longer. Because of the unique qualities of each individual’s skin and lifestyle, we are unable to guarantee how long your results will last. You will likely need a touchup within 6-24 months but may last up to 3 years, fading over time.
The procedure is done using a hand tool, with a prepackaged, sterile, single use “blade” made up of grouping of needles that are 3 x smaller than the needles that would be used in a tattoo machine. With the appropriate amount of pressure, the skin is scored, and the pigment is deposited into the epidermis (outermost layer of skin). Think paper-cuts!
Your first appointment will take between 2-3 hours, as plenty of time will be taken to assure that we have created the shape you desire before the procedure is performed.
Your second appointment (4-8 week touch up) will be between 30-120 minutes.
Each individual will have different experience with the level of discomfort associated with the service. Some say it is relaxing and they only feel the pressure being applied. Others say it feels about as uncomfortable as tweezing. Still there are some who will feel that it is more uncomfortable. Topical numbing cream is used during the procedure to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
When you leave from your appointment your brow area may appear pink, and the pigment itself will seem darker than you may prefer. The day after your appointment would notice anything unusual. Throughout the healing process (1-2 weeks) they will slowly fade to a softer, more natural shade, but they will not be unpresentable.
We choose the shape of your new brows together. Whether you are just looking to enhance the fullness of your natural brow, or create a whole new shape, we will take it one step at a time. Your new shape will be applied with a cosmetic pencil first so that you can see how it will look on your face. We will not start the procedure until you are happy with what we have created.
Absolutely, this is a great option for those who suffer from Alopecia, Trichotillomania, or have been through Chemotherapy. Microblading can even correct past wax catastrophe, over tweezing, or normal hair thinning that occurs post menopause.
