What to expect

How is microblading different than a tattoo?

Permanent makeup and microblading are similar but different.

Permanent makeup is a form of cosmetic tattooing that uses needles and artistic tattoo machinery to implant dyes or pigments into the skin, similar to a regular tattoo. The results are considered permanent.

Microblading is a semi-permanent solution to make your eyebrows look feathery and sharp by creating hairlike strokes using a small blade that penetrates only the first layer of skin.

Both treatments can result in natural looking brows, as the hair-like strokes give the appearance of texture and depth.

How long do the brows last?

Microblading: After your 6-8 week touch up (included with the initial session) your brows should last up to 2 years with proper care. Some people like to re-touch every 6 months for that fresh look.

Permanent Makeup: No 6-week touch-up is required, but included if necessary. Cosmetic tattooing can last 5-10 years, depending on the aftercare of the client.

Does it hurt?

A topical anesthetic is applied to help with any discomfort during both processes. Typically little pain is felt with microblading, but some are more sensitive than others. Still, even those people report there is hardly any pain.

Like any other tattoo, permanent makeup tattooing may be a bit more uncomfortable, but is usually well managed with topical anesthetics.

After your procedure

How long will it take to heal?

Healing time following microblading and cosmetic tattooing is typically 5-7 days. During this time, you may notice mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness.

Keep freshly microbladed or tattooed brows DRY

It is important not to get your new brows wet during the healing process (5-7 days).

You must cover brows with antibacterial ointment (provided at the time of the procedure) while showering or during a strenuous workouts to prevent moisture from penetrating. To remove the ointment, use a tissue or dry cotton swab to wipe gently across each brow once, then dab each brow until dry. Be gentle and do not pull off any scabbing prematurely.

Be gentle with newly microbladed/tattooed brows during the healing process

Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself. If it is removed before it’s ready, the pigment underneath can be pulled out. Once the scabs have formed, you may experience some uncomfortable itching. In this case, a small amount of coconut oil or grapeseed oil may be gently dabbed onto to the area to relieve the itching.

Avoid sun and chemical exposure for at least 7 days

Do not use any makeup, tweeze or dye the brows for at least 7 days.

Do not use any Retin-A or glycolic acids in the brow area during or after the healing process

Keep out of the sun for a week following the procedure, and do not expose the area to extreme sunlight, tanning booths or swimming pools.

After you are completely healed, you may go back to your regular cleansing and makeup routine. Continue to avoid scrubbing the area and use sunblock to protect your brows against fading.
