Let us answer the most common questions about Microblading.
How come some people end up with green or purple eyebrows?
Can I make them lighter after my first treatment?
Unfortunately, this is much more difficult. That is why we take so much care in deciding the color with our client. During the measuring process, we will discuss color. We do not let our clients go darker than their indigenous color and we use precision in our application as depth can distort and deepen color.
Can I make them darker after my first treatment?
Yes, you can! Sometimes clients feel after the healing process is completed that they want to go darker on the second visit. This can be done.
Why do I have to wait 4-6 weeks before my second treatment?
The full healing process takes up to 4-6 weeks. The strokes may disappear and re-appear. We need to wait the full amount of time to ensure which hairs need the touch-up.
Can you make my eyebrows longer?
Yes! All this is part of the artistry of Microblading and will be discussed during measuring. If you are only missing some tail hairs or beginning hairs they can be added during the procedure.
This is a depth issue. Some inexperienced technicians have not been precise in their art and have applied too much pressure on the blade during the procedure. These brows tend to turn a little gray looking as the pigment deposit is so deep.
Can you make my eyebrows thicker?
Yes! Sometimes the difference between a thin eyebrow and a thick eyebrow is only one millimeter. Microblading can make your eyebrows appear longer in length and thicker in the body.
What does shrinkage mean?
Shrinkage happens as Microblading is healing and over time. As the strokes that mimic the individual hairs heal, you may notice them becoming slightly shorter in length.
I don’t have any brows, is Microblading right for me?
Yes! Microblading will be perfect for you! Finally, there is a solution for people suffering from hair loss or Alopecia. Microblading is the most natural looking eyebrow simulation available.
How do you pick the right color?
The pigments are chosen based on natural eyebrow hair color. If you dye your brows, Microblading is not recommended.
What’s the difference between tattooing and Microblading?
The depth the pigment is deposited in Microblading is very shallow compared to a body tattoo. It is this shallowness that makes the strokes appear so crisp and ‘hair-like.’ The deeper the pigment is deposited into the epidermis, the more unclear and fatter the line will appear. It is this very detail that sets Microblading apart from a tattoo gun, depth.
Will it fade completely off?
The depth of the pigment deposit is what defines how long Microblading can be retained. A body tattoo pigment is deposited into the dermis, much more depth than Microblading and that depth cause it to be permanent. This is why it is important to find an experienced artist. If the artist goes too deep, the lines may have longer longevity or even become permanent. Using artists with a steady hand and a good understanding of pressure is imperative.
How long does it last?
Different skin tones have different retention. We see that normal and dry skin individuals have the best retention. Oily skin tones tend to have worse retention, and for them, we recommend the three step process. Furthermore, the lighter colors will fade faster and may need a refresh sooner than darker colors. All of these aspects play a role. In addition, outside factors will play a role. Sun exposure, facial peels, and retinol products can shorten the life of your Microblading.
Does it hurt?
Before your treatment begins a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. This is then followed by a liquid anesthetic.
