How long does microblading last?
All treatments that are on offer last roughly between 12-18 months. The amount of time they last for will depend on a few various factors including the aftercare during the healing process, sun exposure, skin type and how you look after the treatment area once it has healed completely.
Does it hurt?
Different clients say different things regarding the pain of semi permanent make up procedures. Some find it uncomfortable, but by using enough numbing cream, some say they can't feel a thing! Rather than being painful, these treatments are more of an uncomfortable feeling when no numbing agent is used but we would still recommend using some to make it as comfortable as possible for you!
Do you provide numbing cream?
Unfortunately, due to legalities, we are unable to provide numbing cream but can recommend the best brands and where to get them from as long as you apply them yourself! To make the procedure as comfortable and easy for you as possible, we would always recommend using some.
Are different pigment shades available for each client?
For every treatment, there is a selection of various pigments to choose from. Before your appointment, you'll be asked a few questions regarding your skin type and skin tone and these will determine what the best shades are for you. There are lots to choose from so every clients desires can be catered to!
How long does the procedure take?
The time it takes is usually around 1 hour, but each appointment is booked to allow extra time if needed to ensure you're happy with the final result!
Will I be able to see the shape before it is tattooed?
For all treatments, the shape is drawn on before we get started and much time is taken to make small changes to the shape so that you are entirely happy with what your new brows or lips will look like!
What is the necessary aftercare?
For at least 7 days following your treatment, or until the area appears to have completely healed, you should be following this daily routine:
1. Use a gentle face cleanser and avoid the treatment area.
2. If the treatment area does get wet, pat it dry gently with a tissue or clean towel.
3. Apply your treatment ointment (which is given to you after your appointment) to the area 3 times a day, making sure you wash your hands thoroughly before and after each application to avoid infection.
Things not to do:
Do not use make up on or around the treatment area for 7 days afterwards.
Do not expose the treated area to extreme heat or cold until it is completely healed. This includes saunas, sun bathing, tanning beds etc.
Do not scratch, pick, itch or rub the area of the treatment, as this will cause uneven healing, infection, scarring and can remove the pigment.
Please remember that the colour is darker immediately after treatment. It will fade after 4-7 days and the true colour will not come through until 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment.
