Each individual will experience slightly different results as not one skin or body is the same, and this depends on factors such as medication, skincare, and skin type. Some clients may need a small touch up at 6 months and some may need it at 12 to 18 months.
The success of the treatment depends on the:
- skin quality
- post-treatment flow and care
- exposure to different external factors
All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is excluded.
Colour duration primarily depends on how oily the skin is. The oilier the skin, the shorter the colour lasts. Sweating and sun exposure also reduce colour fastness.
On average, expected time until a new colour refreshment is between 12 and 18 months. With oily skin it is up to 6 months.
The healing is fully completed after 28 days and this is when we perform an obligatory addition of the pigment that has been lost (a perfection touch up). With problematic and oily skins, we can have several additions (touch ups).
Post-treatment flow makes 70% of the treatment’s success. Conscientiously obey advice, because if you don’t do so you may lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. Rinsing and good hygiene is of great importance. I will provide you with after care cream (use only if necessary) and instructions.
The pigment is absorbed differently due to differences in the skin quality, thus there is no warranty for the treatment success. The minimum or maximum duration of eyebrow microblading treatment cannot be determined with certainty, nor can the warranty be given on performed treatment.
Yes and no! It really depends on the individual’s pain tolerance. Some clients have explained it to feel like a small sharp scratch and others have said that it is nothing worse than tweezing. Scared clients and clients who have their period usually feel stronger pain.
It is possible to use mild anaesthetics in form of cream that can reduce or eliminate the pain during the treatment.
Please note that if you wish for the anaesthetic to be used you will need to speak to your pharmacist where you can purchase such cream that can be used during the treatment. Pharmacist will make sure there are no contraindications for you to use a numbing cream. I cannot provide this anaesthetic myself due to medical regulations of WA, but you can purchase it yourself and bring with you to your appointment and I will apply it for you during your treatment if you feel the need for it. Some people need it, others don’t.
On average clients have reported pain levels to be 4/10 (the highest score).
DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO PREPARE FOR MICROBLADING PROCEDURE AND WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE STRAIGHT AFTER?
One of the many Pros of microblading is the fact that you do not need to do anything in preparation for the procedure (e.g. waxing/plucking/tweezing).. Come as your brows are.
Unless you are looking at having cosmetic surgery, cosmetic injections or professional skin treatments where you will not be able to have a microblading procedure within 2 weeks or until your doctor has advised. I would also advise to wear minimal to no makeup on the day of your appointment.
The skin must not be in the inflammatory process or the process of healing and regeneration before each treatment.
The following treatments are not recommended 30 days before the treatment:
- botox and fillers
- fruit or milk acids
- laser treatments
- chemical peelings
- exposure to strong sunlight
Immediately after microblading the colour will appear much darker than when the skin heals and within the short period of time (7-14 days) the colour can lighten up to 40%. The size of treated area will also shrink by 15% and your new brows will look more natural in appearance.
Initial brow microblading is a 3 hour appointment. Why? Because I do not rush and I am very detailed with my work!!
The initial appointment includes a consultation where you are able to ask any questions about any concerns you have or if you want more information on the process and aftercare. Afterwards, brow shape is stenciled onto the skin and digitally checked for symmetry and then the actual microblading procedure is undertaken.
Perfection touch up appointment is approximately 1.5 hours.
Possibly, this is on a case by case basis. Please email me with clear, close up photos of your brows and we can take it from there.
Probably! But unfortunately there are some exceptions, as listed below
- Pregnant or Breastfeeding
