Foire aux questions
How long does microblading lasts?
Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 2 years for most people, before it usually needs a touch up. This can vary depending on the skin type and how you take care of the treated area.
Does it hurt?
Most clients report little to no pain, and would compare it to a tweezing session. Many clients even fall asleep! Topical anesthetic is applied so the client can feel at ease while receiving the treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
A microblading sessions consists of a consultation the day of, where we review your lifestyle and daily brow maintenance. We then map the brows according to your facial structure with the Golden Phi Ratio of balanced proportion. Once you approve the brow shape, the procedure takes about an hour and a half. This entire session takes a total of 2.5-3 hours.
Usually 6-8 weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up. This takes one to two hours.
How long is the healing time?
You’ll be able to wear your new brows back to brunch! In the first 7-10 days, you’ll need to avoid getting them too wet (in the shower), working out (sweating) or wearing brow makeup.
In that time any redness will fade and the initial darkness of the eyebrows will begin to lighten. The color will lighten over about thirty days as it completely sets in. Please see aftercare for more details.
Why is it nessesary to do touch up?
Touch up is necessary because everyone heals differently and therefore the outcomes vary. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch up session, the final adjustments are made to assure the client’s satisfaction.
We offer a complimentary touch up between 6 – 8 weeks of your appointment. After that, we charge a fee for annual or semi-annual color boosts.
