Microblading

FAQs

Is eyebrow microblading painful?

Most people experience little to no discomfort during the procedure, thanks to the numbing cream that is applied to the brow area beforehand. However, some individuals may feel minor discomfort or sensitivity.

How long does it take for the eyebrows to heal?

The initial healing period typically takes about 10 days, but it can take up to four weeks for the eyebrows to fully heal and the pigment to settle.

How long does the results of microblading last?

The longevity of the results varies from person to person, but on average, they can last up to 18 months with proper aftercare, especially limiting sun exposure

Is microblading safe?

Yes, as long as it is done by a certified and experienced cosmetic tattoo artist as our specialists at Better Life Clinics, and proper aftercare is followed.

What should I do if I'm not happy with the results?

If you’re not satisfied with the results, contact our cosmetic tattoo specialist for a touch-up appointment. They will be able to make any necessary adjustments to achieve your desired look.

Can I still get my eyebrows waxed or threaded after microblading?

It is recommended to avoid any hair removal treatments on the treated area to prevent damage to the newly microbladed brows. You need to give it time for the healing process.

Are there any risks associated with microblading?

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks involved, such as infection or allergic reactions. However, these risks can be minimized by choosing a certified and experienced microblading artist and following proper aftercare instructions.

Why should I choose microblading over traditional eyebrow tattooing?

Microblading creates a more natural and realistic look compared to traditional eyebrow tattooing, which can often result in a more solid and artificial appearance. Microblading also uses a manual tool, making it a less invasive procedure with minimal downtime.

Is microblading the same as eyebrow embroidery?

Microblading and eyebrow embroidery are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are two different techniques. Microblading uses a manual tool while eyebrow embroidery uses a machine to create hairstrokes. However, both techniques aim to achieve natural-looking eyebrows.

How long will my brow appointment take?

The initial microblading procedure can take anywhere from 2-3 hours, including the consultation and numbing process. Touch-up appointments may take less time, depending on the adjustments needed. It is important to allocate enough time for your appointment to ensure a successful outcome.

How long does microblading touch ups takes?

Touch-up appointments typically take less time than the initial procedure, usually around 1-2 hours.

Will I need multiple touch-ups?

This can vary from person to person, but most individuals will need at least one touch-up appointment to achieve their desired look. Some may require additional touch-ups for optimal results. So, after your initial treatment, and before you leave the office, make sure to schedule a follow up appointment for your touch up.

What if I have extremely oily skin?

Individuals with oily skin may require more frequent touch-ups as the excess oil can cause the pigment to fade faster. It is important to inform your microblading artist about your skin type so they can adjust their technique and provide proper aftercare instructions for optimal results. Even if you have oily skin, microblading can still be a great option for achieving natural-looking eyebrows.

Can I still wear makeup on my eyebrows after microblading?

Avoid wearing any makeup or skincare products on the treated area for at least two weeks after the procedure. After that, you can resume your normal makeup routine, but it is recommended to avoid applying makeup directly on the eyebrows to prolong the results.

Do I need to stop my supplements before microblading?

It is recommended to avoid any blood thinning supplements or medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, Omega-3 and Vitamin E, for at least a week before your microblading appointment. This will help minimize bleeding and bruising during the procedure.
