Let's talk brows...I have been messaged by ALOT of ladies asking questions mostly about microblading!
Perfect brows for microblading: ALL BROWS! Brows that are thin, thick, lacking shape, not there at all, sparse, uneven, to small, has a scar, alopecia, to light...the list goes on!*
Here's some of the questions I have been asked and I want to share!
👉 What is microblading❓Microblading is a form permanent makeup. It is a procedure where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. Hair-like strokes with the tool are created to mimic natural hairs in your brows. Shading can be added, multiple colors to add depth, ombré style, powder effect to create a softer looking brows! The possibilities are endless!
👉 Do I have to shave my brows❓NO! Hell no! Haha! Microblading can be used to enhance what you already have or to completely create the look of a "normal" brow of hair!
👉 Does it hurt❓Yes and no BUT I do use topical anesthetic prior and during the procedure! Everyone is different! I can tell you that whatever pain you may feel, it's tolerable!
👉 Are you tattooing eyebrows on my face forever❓No. While I say permanent makeup, the truth is all permanent makeup that is done by someone trained correctly is only semi permanent. A normal tattoo goes into 7 layers of the skin. Permanent makeup only goes into 3.
👉 How do you know what color to use❓I have multiple pigments that have all been tested and have been proven safe to use! During the consultation, we discuss what you're looking for. I will choose some colors and test them on your skin...once we both agree, then we have officially found your color(s)!
👉 How long do the results last❓A lot of the answer to this question is YOUR at home care. If you're applying sunblock, avoiding excess exfoliation of the area, staying away from acid peels, chances are the results are going to last anywhere between 2-4 years!
👉 Is this a one time procedure or do I have to come back multiple times❓Most procedures I do, whether it's microblading, eyeliner, scalp Esthetics...it requires at least one touch up. When we initially perform the procedure, the skin is "virgin" skin...this means it could retain the pigments beautifully or it means it might not! Everyone is different! Most brows require 2 appointments and if done in the specific recommended time, the touch up is included in your total price!
👉Are you using tattoo ink❓NO!!! I am using pigments designed for permanent makeup! Most pigments are iron or zinc base while most tattoo inks are lead or titanium based!
👉How do you know what kind of brows are meant for me❓Consultation!!! I don't even start the procedure until you have agreed to any potential designs! I tell my clients to bring in pictures of what they are looking for too! We are creating YOUR perfect brow!!!
👉Will I have to continue to groom my brows❓Yes...unfortunately microblading does not make your unwanted hairs stay away...it does however create the beautiful shape and fullness you are looking for without having to figure out just which hair to remove to achieve that "perfect" shape!
Do you have more questions⁉️ Comment below or contact me!!! I'm happy to answer any all all questions!!
*Eyebrows that have received permanent makeup treatments previously may not be a candidate for microblading. A free consultation would be required!
