The initial microblading appointment usually takes 2-3 hours. It starts with consults, where the artist measures and outlines the arches, and chooses a pigmented shade. Then, a numbing cream is applied and once it kicks in (30-45 minutes), it’s time for the actual needling.
A topical anesthetic is used during the procedure, so there is no pain involved, but there may be a slightly uncomfortable sensation similar to pinching. Clients report that it’s no worse than tweezing your brows.
Brows will take about 4- 6 weeks until they reach their final look. But it only takes 2 weeks for scabbing process to complete. After 2 weeks you can return to normal routine and activities.
For best results, an initial touch-up appointment should be booked 6-8 weeks after the initial one, where the artist adds more pigment if necessary. After that, we recommend yearly touch ups to keep the color fresh. It varies from client to client, but it can be 10 months to 2 years, depending on the client’s skin type and life style.
