FAQ

frequently asked questions


HOW LONG IS THE FIRST APPOINTMENT?

We block out 2 hours for your first Microblading appointment. This includes an in depth consultation, shaping, numbing, color selection and the Microblading procedure. Not all appointments take the full 2 hours.


DOES MICROBLADING HURT?

We use topical anesthetic numbing cream that sits on your brows for at least 20 minutes before we get started. We continue to reapply a numbing gel throughout the procedure so you are SUPER comfortable. If you feel any pinch of pain I apply more numbing so it is just about painless! We've actually had clients fall asleep before ;)


HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE COLOR?

We use top of the line pigments to match up to your brow color. Keeping in mind the undertones in your skin, hair color and pigments will all determine the perfect shade for you. From blonde, redhead, gray, brunette, dark dark brown, all hair types and colors are hand selected.


DO YOU USE A MACHINE TO DO MICROBLADING?

Microblading is not done with a tattoo machine. We use a  disposable manual tool (kind of looks like a pen) with a 'blade' made up of 12 - 18 very tiny needles. It is a very gentle and intricate process to give you the most natural looking brows. If we decide to do a combination brow, we sometimes use a machine or a manual tool to create shading.
 


HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?

 Microblading is considered Semi Permanent.  This meaning, it will not last forever. It typically could last anywhere from 1 - 3 years. Overtime the strokes will completely fade away if you were to never touch them up. We specifically like to start your Microblading out very natural and soft, that way we can always build up and add to your brows in the future. Wether that is going more 'fluffy' 'bold' or going a little darker. If you ever wanted to get Microblading completely removed, there are options and procedures for pigment removal.
 


WHAT IS THE MAINTENANCE?

 After your first initial appointment, we schedule you in for your follow up session 6 - 8 weeks later. At this session we will examine how your brows healed, and if we need to go over any strokes, add strokes in or go any darker. After that 6 - 8 week touch up we like to see clients around every 12 - 18 months (if needed) Every client is different and has different skin types. 


WHAT PIGMENTS DO YOU USE?

We use a few different lines of pigments made by PermaBlend, BROWDADDY and Tina Davies . All of our pigments and inks are 100% vegan and mineral based. They do not contain any heavy metals, toxins or chemicals. We use top of the link products to ensure your results are the best and safe for your body/skin. These pigments are specifically designed to NEVER turn purple, pink, blue, green, orange.
