Q: How long will my permanent makeup/microblading last?

Certain medications and chemicals, the sun and your body chemistry all are factors in how long your makeup will last. As a general rule, eyeliner and lip color have the longest longevity, approximately 2 to 5 years, depending upon the color used. Eyebrows may need a touch up every one to three years. Microbladed brows will need a touch up every year.

Q: How Long Does Each Procedure Take?

Approximately 1 to 2 hours. There will be an additional follow up procedure that will take place about three to six weeks from the day of the initial procedure.

Q: Is Permanent Makeup/Microblading Painful?

All procedures are semi-invasive and there maybe some discomfort. It really does vary on each individual’s threshold for pain, but the sensation can be compared to tweezing. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the areas.

Q: What is the After Care?

Brows – Do not pick, peel or force exfoliate while they are healing (usually about seven days). Do not apply any additional makeup to the area while they are healing. Pat aftercare ointment provided on with a clean finger morning and night healing process. You will experience 30% to 50% fading while healing.

Eyes – Apply a very light coat of the aftercare ointment provided with a Q-tip in the evening. Continue this process for four days. You can wear mascara only on the tips of your lashes in 48 hours if you purchase a new tube, otherwise, no eye makeup for four days. Total healing time is approximately five to seven days.  You will experience 50% to 75% fading while healing.

Lips – Immediately following the treatment there may be some swelling. This will usually last no more than 24 hours. Apply aftercare ointment provided to lips throughout the day whenever they feel dry. You will experience dryness, similar to chapped lips. Do not force peel lips when they start to peel.  Total healing time is approximately five to seven days.  You will experience 50% to 75% fading while healing.

Q: What is the Difference Between Permanent Makeup and Microblading?

With the sudden popularity and media attention to the term microblading, many are led to believe microblading is not a tattoo process. Permanent cosmetics, micropigmentation, dermal implantation, 3D, hair strokes, microblading/microstroking, eyebrow embroidery, and long-time/long-lasting makeup, etc. are all different names for the same procedure – cosmetic tattooing.  Any time color is placed into the skin with any device, it is a tattoo process as defined by many well-informed regulators, the medical community, and dictionary sources. Denying this process is a tattoo can be problematic for those who would, for religious or other personal reasons, normally refuse to have a tattoo.

Q: Are the Treatments Safe?

The equipment used complies with all relevant health and safety requirements. All needles are disposable, sterile and of the highest quality. Sterilization and hygiene are of the utmost importance before, during, and after the treatment. All procedures are performed in a doctor’s office.
