Microblading is a cosmetic tattoo that is done by using a handheld configuration of needles to create thin lines that resemble eyebrow hairs. These tiny needles deposit pigment in to the dermal layer of the skin.
What is Microblading + Shading?
Microblading and shading means we do Microblading throughout the eyebrow but we also use a machine to create a powder-like fill in specific areas or throughout the eyebrow. We can use shading to match density, create an ombre brow, or to simply create more of a filled in look. It is a very versatile option for natural looking brows
Is it semi-permanent? How long does it last?
Not exactly. It is impossible to predict how much pigment will fade away and how long it will take to do so. Typically the pigment is at its brightest for 18 months. Results depend on skin type, health, aftercare, and lifestyle.
How long does the procedure take?
I allow 2 1/2 hours for the first session. This includes time for intake forms, consultation, numbing, design, and the procedure. Perfecting sessions can take anywhere from 45mins- 90 mins depending on what needs to be done. I pride myself in taking time with your design. You are 100% involved and we will make sure you lobe your shape before starting.
Is it painful?
Everyone's tolerance is different and therefore this is a subjective question. I use a 5% lidocaine to numb the area. I also apply additional numbing throughout the process; as often as needed. Most clients are pleasantly surprised at the comfort level achieved. My goal is to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
How many sessions are needed?
Microblading and Microblading and Shading are two-step processes. Although some clients may be satisfied after the intitial appointment, a perfecting session is included and must be scheduled 6-8 weeks after the initial appt and no later than 90 days. In rare cases, an additional session may be needed and is not included in the original package price. Additional session pricing can be found on my booking website.
Can microblading be done over previous permanent makeup/microblading?
A consultation is required BEFORE booking an appointment. I must see them in person and results are not guaranteed, Clients who do not have a consultation/discussion with me prior to booking an appointment may run the risk of losing their deposit if we cannot work on the previously tattooed brow. Brows must be 80% faded to achieve proper results. I now offer non-laser tattoo removal that may be discussed.
