Frequently Asked Questions
Does microblading hurt?
Most of our customers say that the pain involved with microblading is only very moderate and it hurts significantly less than a typical tattoo as we use a specially-formulated numbing cream. Obviously, this will depend on your personal tolerance to pain and it is a procedure that involves piercing the skin so you should expect some discomfort. Our staff will however make sure you feel comfortable during the procedure and we can take a short break if you need us to.
How much is microblading?
Prices vary. Please check prices page.
When can I wash my eyebrows after microblading?
As a rule of thumb, we would say to wait at least 10 days before washing your newly microbladed brows, but this will vary per person and how long it takes for your eyebrows to heal and cleanse themselves.
Can you get microblading if you're pregnant?
We wouldn't recommend getting your eyebrows microbladed when you're pregnant. This is still a cosmetic procedure and may exacerbate hyperpigmentation that some people suffer from when pregnant.
Why does microblading disappear during healing?
As microblading pierces and damages the skin to insert the pigment, the body's natural reaction is to heal the light injury by scabbing over the layer of the skin. In the first seven to fourteen days you may experience some shedding or flaking of the skin. This is entirely normal and although you may see some fade, the pigment will reappear, albeit slightly lighter, once the healing process is fully complete.
How do you patch test for microblading?
To make sure you don't experience an allergic reaction to the treatment, we will patch test you before we begin. This involves adding some of the pigment we will use to an inconspicuous area of the skin such as the scalp. Our staff will talk you through the entire patch testing process during your initial consultation when we will ask about your previous treatments or medical conditions.
