Frequently Asked Questions About Microblading
How long does the microblading procedure last?
Everyone is different and a color refresh is recommended on average from 12-18 months after your first microblading procedure.
Can you work on eyebrows that have been tattooed?
How long does it take to do?
For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 2- 2.5 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure.
The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Microblading session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 60-90 mins to complete.
Does the procedure hurt?
Flawless beauty take's every precaution necessary to ensure that the application is as pain free as possible. We use a medical grade numbing cream for your comfort. Some clients find the procedure a little uncomfortable, whereas other clients report no discomfort at all.
How long is the recovery or healing time?
A lot of my clients can walk right out the door, ready to show off their new eyebrows. The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
What will they look like immediately after the procedure?
Your eyebrows may be a little swollen, red and sometimes a bit white for 36-48hrs. This is all very normal. Your eyebrow will be darker for the first week, before they begin to fade out to a softer color.
Does it hurt afterwards?
The area can be a little sore for the first few hours and then tender to the touch for a couple of days.
Will my Microbladed Eyebrows look fake?
NO ! Semi-Permanent makeup is done using a cosmetic tattooing process and our eyebrow pigmentation unique artistry guarantees soft, natural looking eyebrows. When we implant semi-permanent makeup pigment in the skin, it appears more natural looking than even topically applied cosmetics.
What if I do not like it?
As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly. We always recommend clients do their research, understand the procedure and compare different artists' work and portfolio when making their decisions. Flawless beauty will do their utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Pigment discoloration and color correction can also be fixed during the the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done.
