Frequently asked questions
How long does it last?
Microblading can last up to 2 years. micro shading can last up to 5 years and Ombre Lips can last up to 18 months. As it is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure, touch ups and color boosts are highly recommended to keep your brows and lips looking perfect. Please note that following after care instructions properly has a huge impact on your retention. Everybody retains pigment differently. Some clients may require more maintenance. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that one may benefit more than another as this is an ART, not a science. Factors that will cause your micropigment to fade more rapidly: Sun exposure Smoking Exfoliant around the brows and lips Salt water Strong immune systems
Will I still have to fill in my brows or wear lipstick?
permanent makeup does not completely take away the need to fill in your eyebrows or wear lipstick. it gives you brows an outline and a template to work with. lipstick is needed when you want a different color than your pigment. lipgloss is always recommend for your lips. "Gloss and go!"
How long does the procedure take?
Expect your initial session to take around 2-3 hours. The consultation is a part of your appointment. After filling out paperwork, I will numb you, then we consult, and map and outline your perfect shape.
How bad does it hurt?
The pain is very tolerable. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different. You will be given an anesthesia to numb the area that will greatly reduce the pain. It is slightly uncomfortable but totally worth it!
How do you choose my shape and color?
I find your perfect shape, size and placement by taking careful measurements and placing an outline exactly where the brows or lips will be micropigmented- which also gives you an idea of what the shape will look like. Your color is chosen by your existing natural brow hair, and your skin tone for brows and for lips its based on your desired result and skin tone.
