How long is the procedure?
Microblading is a 2 step process that is spaced 6 weeks apart.
*If you choose to get microblading ONLY, it is highly likely that you will require both the initial procedure and a touch up. Client's that receive microshading (a combination of microblading and shading) may or may not need a touch up session.
STEP 1: The initial microblading procedure takes approximately 3 hours. During this time, a consultation is done where we discuss your desired brow look, draw the initial outline of the procedure area, and choose a befitting pigment color. Once you are satisfied with the shape and symmetry, semi-permanent pigment is applied to the brow area.
STEP 2: The second stage of the treatment is a touch up. The touch up sessions allows us to darken hair strokes and correct any irregularities that occurred during the healing stage.
What happens during the healing process?
Your eyebrows will appear darker and more intense right after your microblading procedure. It may continue to get darker over the next few days as scabs begin to form. Do not pick your scab. The pigment is within the scab and you do not want to pull any pigment out of your skin prematurely. As the scab naturally falls off, it will seem like your brows have disappeared. This is a result of new skin forming over the treated area, but don't worry, as natural exfoliation begins your brows will begin to shine through again, however, the pigment will be 30-50% lighter than it was right after your microblading procedure. The entire healing process takes approximately 6 weeks.
How long will my results last?
The pigment used in the microblading procedure is semi-permanent and can last up to 2 years, however, due to the amount of sun exposure we receive in Florida results typically last around 12 months. For optimal brow upkeep, a touch up is recommended around 8-12 months. Please note that final results are not guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold and break down pigments differently.
Does the microblading procedure hurt?
Before and during the microblading procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. Most clients say the discomfort is minimal however everyone has a different level of sensitivity. Please note that if you are a frequent smoker, the topical anesthetics used during the treatment will not last as long. Also, avoid booking an appointment during your menstrual cycle as this can increase your sensitivity to pain.
Is the booking deposit refundable?
No. A booking deposit is required to secure all appointments and is applied to the balance of your procedure, which is due in full the day of the procedure, however, the fee is NON-Refundable in the event you cancel your appointment (regardless of reason).
