When getting your brows done there are always some questions about the treatment. Check out some of our FAQ’s.
HOW LONG DOES EYEBROW TATTOOING (Microblading / Feather Touch Brows / Eyebrow Embroidery) LAST?
Microblading really depends on the individual and how well you care for your brows. A colour touchup every 12 to 18 months is recommended for really crisp results. However they can last for up to 4 years on certain people. They won’t however have that crisp look by that stage.
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING TAKE?
I put aside 3 hours, we won’t likely need all that time, however I allow that time so you don’t feel rushed in deciding on a new brow shape, this isn’t something we want to rush. Most of that time is spent explaining the procedure/aftercare and measuring up perfect brows to suit your facial features.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
Healing time varies for each individual, it usually takes around a week to 10 days. During healing time your new brows will darken then basically lift off like a scab (Do not try and remove it yourself – it needs to come of naturally for best healed results).
Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin pigment can still be darkening at week four. After a month the true colour of your brows will have settled in and you’ll be ready for your touch-up.
WHAT CAN’T I DO AFTER THE PROCEDURE DURING HEALING TIME?
You are advised to keep the skin clean and dry (no makeup on the brows – use a face washer to carefully wash around the brows. No saunas, swimming, prolonged sun exposure, tanning, gym (this produces sweat). Sometimes during the healing process the skin starts to itch like a normal scab – no picking your new brows ladies!
SHOULD I PLUCK OR WAX MY BROWS BEFORE THE APPOINTMENT?
No, it is desirable to have as many natural hairs as possible to achieve a natural look.
