What is microblading?
Microblading is a modern form of permanent cosmetics in which the technician uses a handheld tool to manually create hyper-realistic hair strokes. While microblading is a permanent service, results typically last 1-3 years depending on skin type and aftercare compliance.
Can Anyone Have Permanent Makeup?
Please be advised that microblading is a form of tattooing and there are some medical conditions and medications that prevent clients from getting the service. If you have any questions, please please read our list of contraindications or contact Thereasa. Occasionally, a doctor's note can be accepted for special cases.
How long does it take to heal?
The healing process typically takes a complete 4-6 weeks. Minor swelling and irritation is normal, and the brows will appear darker than normal for 2-5 days. It is normal for the color to flake off and appear softer and less visible during the healing process, but the pigment will reappear in the following days.
How should i prepare for my appointment?
Before your appointment, please be sure to avoid blood thinners, alcohol, ibuprofen, and any other pain relievers 24-48 hours before your appointment. Caffeine the day of the procedure may increase discomfort levels and blood flow. Exercising before the brows are done flaking will result in poor healed results. Retin A and fish oil must be stopped at least 10 days prior to the service. Botox administered within three weeks before the appointment will result in a reschedule. It is not advised to have your brows done before a vacation.
Does it hurt?
While everyone's pain tolerance varies, I numb my clients with topical numbing cream, and I use another numbing solution throughout. My past clients have described the feeling as a 1 on a scale of 10 for pain.
How long does it last?
Proper aftercare will save your pigment from fading. Typically, microblading will last 1-3 years. This however, can be affected by the use of harsh topical skin care around the area, unprotected UV exposure, and improper aftercare.
Can I choose my shape?
I provide each of my clients an in-depth brow mapping and analysis. We will both work together to outline the perfect shape of brow that compliments both your facial structure and your personal style.
Is it reversible?
Receiving a permanent cosmetic procedure should be considered carefully and thoughtfully through. Any pigment being placed under the skin is permanent. There are a few different ways to lighten and lessen the pigment, however the results are never guaranteed and can be very damaging to the skin. Do not go into an appointment with the thought that it is reversible.
