What Is Microblading?
Microblading is an advanced technique of cosmetic tattooing that is done by a process of implanting colour pigment beneath the surface of the skin with a row of micro sterile, disposable needles that form a blade which will produce the appearance of hair where there isn't any, or add more to enhance and create fullness where hair already exists. This is with a manual hand tool, not a machine.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Topical anaesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure. Most clients say it does not hurt at all! However, please note you will be more sensitive on your menstrual cycle.
How Long Does It Last?
The treatment will fade over time and a touch-up is required 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure and then lasts 1-3 years. Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including sun exposure, skin types, how active the client is, and how fast each individual's cell turnover is. Please note that final results and time frame cannot be guaranteed as each skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates.
Touch ups are needed for cosmetic tattoo procedures, with each new procedure requiring 2 visits. The initial procedure followed by a touch up procedure 4-6 weeks later. Previously tattooed eyebrows may require one or two additional appointments and rarely achieve the same results to those who have no previous tattoo work because of the existing scar tissue and colour under the skin, even if it isn't visible.
