Frequently asked questions

What is Microblading?


Microblading is a revolutionary way to enhance your brows. It is done with a hand tool and a microblade is attached to the end of the tool. It is then dipped into ink and etched onto your skin in the shape of an eyebrow hair.




Is Microblading permanent?


Microblading is considered semi-permanent. It can last 6-18 months. This time frame varies based on the client’s skin type and how they care for their brows after the procedure.




Is Cosmetic Tattooing for me?


Anyone who has the desire to fill-in their brows or enhance their natural features would benefit from cosmetic tattooing. Someone who might be looking for a different brow shape, color or size would also be a good candidate. Cosmetic Tattoo adds extra definition to your features for example, microblading adds additional "tattooed" hairs to your existing hairs so if you are missing any part of your brow, Microblading can help give you a more complete look.




Is Microblading/Cosmetic Tattooing painful?


Most clients, including myself, would say that the discomfort is minimal and more of an annoyance than pain and compare the pain to a wax or tweezing. Prior and during the procedure, your skin will be numbed with a topical lidocaine cream. Pain thresholds differ from person to person; however, every effort is made to keep you as comfortable as possible.




Why are two visits required?


For most clients, a minimum of two treatments are usually needed, at least 4-8 weeks apart. Microblading is a 2-step process… Your Initial sessioon is used to map the shape and build the foundation of your brows/lips/eyeliner, and create symmetry and balance. Your followup visit is to add more substance to the initial work. We do this by adding more hair strokes or layering colour, blending or filling in any gaps that did not take as well. It is important that you attend your second appointment even if you feel you don't need it as you will end up fading much sooner if the initial work is not reinforced. DISCLAIMER: Please note that final results can not be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. We will evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and make any further recommendations.




Do you shave the brows before microblading?


Absolutely not! Microblading simply adds on to the already existing hairs in your natural eyebrows.




What will effect my new tattoo?


Sun exposure, the regeneration of skin cells over time, skin type, the choice of colour, AHA's and Glycolic skincare and bleeding during the procedure will affect the final result of your treatment. When the skin bleeds more during the procedure, pigment is pushed out of the skin, therefore retention is poor. To avoid this make sure you avoid alcohol 48 hours prior to treatment, and if you are on blood thinners to let us know prior to treatment. Long term, your new brow tattoo will fade and shrink over time, therefore 6-12 months touch ups are advised to keep your tattoo looking sharp and on point!




What Eyebrow style is best for me?


Although this can be a personal preference, we take into account your individuality and other factors such as skin type to recommend the best style customised for you!
