Will you touch up someone else’s work?
No. Our touch up service is only for our existing clients. If you have had your brows done elsewhere, we do not go over them until they are 70% faded. Once your brows are ready to be re-done, full prices apply.
What if you have existing tattoo?
If you have had your brows done previously, please submit a photo in natural lighting without any make up on. We will determine whether we can work on them.
Is the touch up necessary?
It is for all microbladintg prodecures. Varies for Ombre and Combo Brows.
Can I get my touch up session sooner than 6 weeks?
No, you must allow a minimum of 6-8 weeks for the skin to fully heal.
Do my brows need to be removed / shaved prior?
Absolutely not, it is desirable to have as many natural hairs as possible to achieve a natural look.
Who is a candidate?
There are a few misconceptions, the biggest being that it is only for individuals with severe hair loss. Although these clients can benefit from this procedure immensly, individuals looking to add depth and color will find great value in microblading. It is also a great choice for those wanting to correct their brow shape after years of follicle damage due to various epilation methods.
Will I be able to return to work the following day?
Yes, swelling and redness will subside within 24hrs. The color of your brows will be dark for the first few days but will soften.
Will the area be tender after?
The area can be a little sore for the first few hours and tender to touch for a couple days.
Is there a risk of infection?
There is minimal risk of infection as strict hygiene standards are maintained. Sterile, disposable, single use needles from sealed packets are used.
Can I see some examples of your work?
Our Instagram displays recent work on our clients and is updated daily.
Is it permanent?
Technically, semi-permanent micro-pigmentation is considered permanent because the color is implanted into the upper dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, the pigment is implanted more superficially than a traditional tattoo, so it naturally fades over time.
Is it painful?
This particular service can be a slightly uncomfortable for individuals with a low tolerance for pain. However, an anesthetic is applied before and during the process to minimize the pain and allow the procedure to be completely tolerable.
Why does the pigment fade over time?
Traditional methods of permanent makeup consists of implanting pigment into the dermis. The dermis is live skin and made up of blood vessels, sebaceous glands, sweat glands and nerves. This layer of skin is "alive" therefore, it usually retains pigment permanently. In microblading, pigment is deposited above the dermis into the basal layer of the epidermis. Due to the cells in the basal layer continuosly dividing, over time the pigment is broken down and eventually migrates to the surface causing the pigment to gradually fade.
How does it work?
The pigment is applied with a microblading tool that contains a row of several fine needles to create thin hair like strokes in the skin. I will select the appropriate needles and blade type according to the technique as well as skin type. The pigment is inserted just below the epidermis which is the most shallow part of the dermis, making extremely fine and natural looking. A very natural result is achieved, as the stroked are bladed into the skin according to the directions of the individuals natural hair growth. A touch up is included 6-8 weeks following your treatment.
How long is the procedure?
The appointment will take approximately two hours, depending on the brow shape and amount of hair strokes required.
