Each client’s skin will respond differently, both in the length of time it takes to heal, and the number of sessions needed for your desired results and color retention. This information acts as a guideline only, and we cannot guarantee your results.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING, OMBRE SHADING & COMBO BROWS?
Microblading, Ombré Shading and Combo brows are a form of semi-permanent makeup. Microblading is a manual process of implanting color pigment into the upper layer of the skin with the use of handheld tool and tiny, sterile, disposable needle to deliver the appearance of hair strokes, makeup, or to enhance the brow definition and natural features of the face. Ombré Shading is performed with a machine and delivers a soft cosmetic penciled look as opposed to hair like strokes. Once healed, it appears natural. Comb brows consists of both microblading and ombré shading techniques giving texture and density.
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
This varies from person to person depending on the client’s skin, lifestyle and health condition. Microblading is considered semi-permanent and they will fade over time. Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 3 years for most people. An annual touch up is recommended after the follow up touch up. If your skin is very oily, Ombré shading is recommended as the end result of microblading may appear more powdery and will most likely need more touch-up. The constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a diffused and powdery look. Please note that final results CANNOT be guaranteed as each client's skin type will respond differently in healing time, color retention and number of sessions needed for desired results.
SHOULD I BOOK A CONSULTATION?
Consultation is done on the actual date of your microblading procedure. However, you are welcome to contact us with any questions you may have. Prior to booking an appointment, please ensure that you have read and understand the FAQ, precare, aftercare and policy information.
CAN I GET MY EYEBROWS MICROBLADED IF THEY WERE PREVIOUSLY TATTOOED/MICROBLADED?
