Microblading is a tatooing technique that adds in individual hair strokes to give your brows shape and fullness.
Tiny hair-like strokes are made manually by the artist while pigment is deposited into the epidermal layer of the skin. Due to the pigment fading over time, it is recommended to have a touch up done every 1-2 years to maintain results.
6-8 Weeks after Initial Microblading appointment. The artist will assess, take photos and fill in any pigment that is needed.
Microblading Aftercare Instructions
DOES IT HURT TO GET MICROBLADING DONE?
We will apply a numbing cream to the area first to alleviate any pain. Clients usually report that it does not hurt but can be uncomfortable.
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
Typically 1-3 years. However, everyone is different and some will notice fading sooner. A Touch-Up is recommended at 6-8 weeks after your initial appt to increase longevity.
WHAT IF I'VE HAD PREVIOUS BROW WORK DONE?
HOW LONG IS THE MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT?
Plan on the initial Powder Brow service lasting approximately 2.5 hours. Touch-Ups do not usually take as long. It will depend on your individual needs.
DO I HAVE TO GET A TOUCH UP DONE ON MY MICROBLADED BROWS?
It is highly recommended that you come in for a Touch Up appointment 6-8 weeks after you have your Powder Brows done. Once they are fully healed, the artist can assess and improve any needs. Touch Ups are not required but can increase the longevity of your Microblading. There is a possibility that you may not need a touch-up but Effortless Arches would still like to see you to check healed results and take photos.
ARE POWDER BROWS & MICROBLADING THE SAME THING?
No. Microblading is a technique that is done by making individual strokes in the skin to look like hair. Powder Brows uses a pin-dot pigment application that results in a softer powdery and natural look. Both services are, however, permanent makeup techniques that are a type of tattoo.
ARE MICROBLADED BROWS THE SAME AS A REGULAR TATTOO?
Yes and no. All permanent makeup is a type of tattoo. The difference between PMU and regular tattoos is the technique and tools used. The PMU pigment is not applied as deeply into the skin as a regular tattoo and therefore does not last a lifetime like a regular tattoo.
