What is microblading?
Microblading is an ideal treatment option for those looking to improve the appearance of their brows. This technique is semi-permanent and gives the illusion of having fuller brows.
How long do results last?
Results of microblading treatment can last anywhere from 12-18 months. The longevity of your results will be largely dependent on your skin type and lifestyle.
Is this treatment painful?
Typically, no. We will apply a topical numbing cream 25 minutes prior to your procedure so that you are as comfortable as possible. For this reason, most patients have minimal pain, swelling, and bleeding, if they experience any at all.
How long does the treatment take?
Treatment will take only about an hour and a half from start to finish.
How does it work?
Treatment is broken up into two parts: your initial appointment followed by an additional session 4-6 weeks after.
Results usually last anywhere from 12-18 months, but most patients elect to have a touch-up treatment around the 9 month mark for optimal results and maintenance. If your skin is particularly oily, if you are very active, or if you spend quite a bit of time outdoors you may consider getting a touch-up treatment sooner. For those with dry skin and those who don’t spend a lot of time in the sun, you may not need a touch-up treatment until the 12 month mark.
Please note that the cost of your touch-up treatment will be dependent upon how long it has been since your initial appointment.
What if I have had previous eyebrow tattooing or microblading done in the past?
In these cases, we will need to see a photo of your eyebrows without any makeup prior to scheduling an appointment so that we can assess the situation and plan treatment accordingly.
What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment and follow up care?
It is important that you refrain from consuming any blood thinners such as alcohol or Advil at least 24 hours before your scheduled treatment. We also recommend shampooing your hair before coming in for your appointment as you will not be able to submerge your brows in water or sweat for a few days after treatment.
We will send you home with an ointment that you will need to apply to the area for a few nights following treatment along with aftercare instructions that will be specific to your skin type.
While your brows may look different as they go through the stages of healing, it is important to note that these changes are not as noticeable to others.
Am I a candidate for this treatment?
Microblading is typically not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing and for those undergoing chemotherapy treatments. If you still wish to seek treatment, you will need to consult with your doctor and provide a note saying you are cleared for treatment before scheduling an appointment with us. Additionally, those who are taking blood thinners are not candidates for this treatment.
Will Microblading affect my ability to grow hair?
No, Microblading does not affect your body’s ability to grow hair.
When will I be able to wear makeup again?
Regular face makeup can be worn right after treatment, but you will need to wait at least one week before applying any makeup to your brows
