FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DOES IT HURT?
I ask that you purchase Emla cream from a Pharmacy, to numb the area an hour beforehand. This will help manage any discomfort felt during the first pass over your brow. Then shortly after, a secondary anaesthetic is applied and the rest of the treatment is no-to-mild discomfort. It is important to note everyone experiences pain differently and I do my best to make the process as pain free as possible.
HOW DO LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
4 - 6 weeks. I ask you to stick to the aftercare advice for the 6 weeks following your treatment. Your brows may appear bold and dark for the first few days but after two weeks, your brows will start to settle. You will be given an aftercare kit and full instructions on how to care for your brows at your appointment.
HOW LONG DOES A BROW TATTOO LAST?
For Microblading, I recommend a Colour Boost every 12 months as your tattoo will fade and the undertone will start to show.
For Ombre or Powder Brows, I recommend a Colour Boost every 18+ months as the ink tends to last longer in the skin.
DO I NEED TO SHAPE MY BROWS BEFOREHAND?
No, this is included in your treatment. I recommend leaving your brow as long as possible - the more for me to work with, the better.
WHICH BROW OPTION SHOULD I CHOOSE?
This will be discussed with you during your consultation. Microblading is not recommended for extremely oily skins or clients that are working out a lot as they will not last as long. Ombre brows are most suitable for those with hair through the front of their brow but less through the ends. Powdered brows are more suited for oily skins and cover larger areas of brow reconstruction on clients with large areas of hair loss.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
All appointments include two treatments. The second appointment is a Perfecting treatment to make any necessary adjustments from your initial treatment. This appointment must be done no less than 4 weeks and no more than 8 weeks apart. If you have little to no brow hair, you may need a third appointment. This will be discussed with you during your consultation.
CAN I GET COSMETIC TATTOOING WHILE PREGNANT OR NURSING?
I cannot go ahead with the procedure if you are pregnant. If you are nursing, you will need to express 24 hours after your treatment.
CAN I WEAR MAKEUP TO MY APPOINTMENT?
Yes. Your brow will be thoroughly cleansed before starting the treatment.
