A. Microblading and shaded Brows can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age(youth, mature) and lifestyle (retinol creams, sun exposure, chemical peels). On average most people will want a refreshment around 18 months. Because the pigment is only embedding in the top dermal layer of the skin Microblading and shaded Brows will fade over time.
A. Both are a tattoo. Microblading and shaded Brows are done with a manual tool not a machine. The manual technique gives us complete control and softer realistic look whereas with a machine, the eyebrow created is more of a solid, stark unrealistic brow. With Microblading and Shaded brows the pigment is not implanted as deep as traditional tattooed brows. The needle is much smaller and thinner than with traditional tattoo brows. This has many benefits; we can achieve very precise, crisp natural looking hair strokes, there is less pain, the color will fade instead of fading to a different color permanently, and lastly with Microblading and Shaded brows the damaged caused to the skin is much less than traditional tattooed brows.
A. There is slight discomfort. Pain is relative to each individual’s tolerance. For most clients the pain is very tolerable. A numbing cream is applied prior to etching. 30 min wait time is required to numb. The numbing cream agent lasts for 2 hours. A numbing liquid will be applied after the skin is open which is after our first pass of etching. From then on you should be close to complete numb.
A.First we will schedule a consultation. During the consultation I will show you the difference in your brows and how we can achieve symmetry and shape. We will decide on which technique and color to use, discuss further about the treatment steps and aftercare, perform a patch test, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We can do your consultation through email if that better suits your schedule. Then we will schedule and complete your brow procedure. A touch up will be needed about 4-6 weeks after the initial brow procedure. After this you will schedule your touch up as you see fit for your skin.
A. Microblading and shading will not fade completely even throughout the brow. The skin will attack certain areas and strokes and those will appear lighter than others. When you start to notice some spots or strokes are lighter than others this is when you will have your touch up appointment. This appointment could be anywhere from 8 months to 2 years, on average around 18 months. The amount of time before you need the touchup appointment will depend on skin type and lifestyle as well as how particular you are with the appearance of your brows.
