Brows FAQ’s

What is Microblading?

Microblading also was known as 3D Feather Eyebrows is the most natural form of semi-permanent makes up. Using a handtool, small amounts of hypoallergenic pigment is deposited into the outer most layer of the skin, creating hair strokes. 

What is Microshading?

Microshading (also known as ѕhаdіng, еmbrоіdеrу оr ѕtіррlіng) is done using an electric hand tооl with a rоund соnfіgurеd nееdlе. Thіѕ technique сrеаtеѕ a ѕоft powdered еffесt which resembles еуеbrоw реnсіl or powder. It іѕ very ѕіmіlаr tо micro beading but instead of hаіrѕtrоkе, a fuller, ѕоftеr effect is сrеаtеd.

How long does it last?

Typically lasts 1-3 years. 

How often do I need a touch up?

Touch-ups are recommended every six months to a year, to keep the color fresh and the hair strokes crisp.

How long is the procedure?

The procedure generally takes two hours to complete.

How long does it take to heal?

Healing time varies from individual to individual. Generally, a full two weeks to see healed results. (Detailed aftercare instructions are given prior and after your brow appointment)

What will my brows look while they are healing?

The tattoo will look up to 30% darker and larger during the first week, until it fully heals.  During the healing process, the tattoo may form a light scab or crust. This is not very noticeable and can be concealed with brow gel or powder after 3 days until the scab fully comes off in 7-10 days.

How do you select the color and shape?

During your consultation, we will discuss your preferences. Together, we will pre-draw the shape and design of your brows. I will not begin the tattooing process until you have approved the color and design.
