Frequently Asked Questions
you have questions? we have answers.
The most common automatic disqualifiers are if you are: under the age of 18, pregnant, breast feeding, prone to keloids, undergoing chemotherapy, have a pacemaker/major heart problems, viral infections/diseases. When booking an appointment, you will be required to answer a yes/no questionnaire which will help us determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
Everyone has a different pain tolerance. Some have compared the feeling to be similar to plucking/tweezing their eyebrows, which depending on whether or not you pluck/tweeze often, may or may not be painful. We do apply a lidocaine, which is a numbing cream that helps make the procedure as pleasant as possible. Some have described the whole procedure to be so relaxing that they actually fell asleep.
It depends with each person, but on average about 1 year. The factors that affect how long they last are: the person's age, skin type, sun exposure, skin care products you use, and how active your lifestyle is.
7 to 14 days for the initial healing, depending on the person.
For the initial brow procedure, about 1.5 to 2 hours. For touch-ups, it is typically about 1 hour.
For at least 1 week, avoid any exercise, since sweat and oils can cause the hairstrokes to fade faster, blur and spread out.
Nothing on or near the brows for at least 1 week. You may wear eye makeup, and foundation, etc., but just don't go near the brows!
A touch-up is highly recommended to fill in the areas where the skin might have rejected the pigments from the initial procedure and to add final touches to complete the brows.
If you have used accutane in the past 12 months then you will not be eligible for this procedure. You should not have a pace maker, be going through chemo, or be under the age of 18. Understand that medicine changes the body's chemistry, which can cause the pigments not to attach to the body's cells. Therefore, pigment retention might not take so well for people who are on medications. Results vary for certain individuals. Sandy may require you to provide medical authorization from your physician to proceed with getting microblading done.
