Microblading Frequently Asked Questions
Hello, and thank you so much for selecting Brow Designs by Julia to be your PMU (permanent make up) Artist. The following are FAQ’s I have gathered to give you as much information on microblading eyebrows.
What is Micro-blading?
Microblading is the manual process of implanting pigment into the
epidermis with a pre-sterilized disposable tool configured of tiny
needles to produce and mimic a natural hair-stroke.
Is Microblading painful?
A topical pre-numbing anesthetic is applied before and during the
Microblading procedure. Most clients rate the pain at being a 1-4 on a
scale of 1-10 (10 being worst)
Is Microblading safe?
We follow the highest level of sterilization and sanitation which is
regulated for all tattooing and permanent makeup by the county health
department. Your safety is top priority during any procedure.
How long will Microblading last?
Although Microblading is referred to as ‘permanent/semipermanent
makeup’, there are no guarantees of a specific duration of time as each
clients retention is effected by different factors based on age, health,
lifestyle, skin type, etc.
Is Microblading for men?
Yes Microblading can be for men too!
How long is the healing process of Microblading?
Typically healing will take place in approximately 7-10 days.
Will I need a touch-up after my Microblading is healed?
It is advised that each client return 6-12 weeks after the initial
How do I care for my Microbladed eyebrows during the healing process?
You will be given full instructions on the healing care at the time of your
initial visit. We will provide you with a healing balm/ointment to care
for your Microbladed eyebrows also.
How will I look after Microblading?
Your eyebrows will appear darker at first as compared to the end result.
The color will usually fade gradually 30-50% and soften to a more
natural look. Pigment will fade over time and touch up maintenance
periodically can keep them fresh and vibrant.
How do I book an appointment?
We offer an online booking system or you can call today!
What is 'microshading'?
Microshading is creating small pin-point dots with a manual tool to give a gradient or shadow effect to the eyebrows. It can be done alone or along with microblading. It is sometimes recommended for clients with oily or sensitive skin.
What results should I expect from microblading?
The results of a microblading procedure will vary from one person to the next. Besides the fact that it is an art and it varies from artist to artist, it will look very different for each person. We all have our uniqueness from bone structure, hormonal makeup, hair growth pattern, lifestyle, skin type and environonmental exposures. These all factor into the retention and final outcome of an individual’s final result. Microblading is not 100% foolproof in any way. It is also not to be used as a replacement for makeup, with touchups as frequent as weeks apart. You can cause scarring if you constantly go over the same area. Microblading is to enhance what you already have or to possibly correct symmetry. There is no way an artist can predict how a clients skin will respond or heal. We try our best to deliver a look that suits you and we give full instructions on the importance of aftercare to help preserve pigmentation. Art is not perfection and therefore even after microblading you can still have difficult areas that may need you to fill in with makeup.
