Frequently Asked Questions
Is microblading painful?
The majority of our customers have said that they have found the treatment to be very manageable in terms of pain. To make it more tolerable we use a special numbing cream which will reduce the pain.
Overall, you should only experience mild discomfort during the treatment, but this will obviously depend somewhat on your personal tolerance to pain. As with all our treatments, our aim is to ensure our customers feel comfortable and as relaxed as they can throughout. If at any point you'd like a short break, we're more than happy to accommodate.
How much is microblading?
Our prices vary. Please take a look at the prices page to find out more.
When can I wash my eyebrows after microblading?
Generally, you'll need to wait at least 10 days before washing your new brows. However, this will vary per person and the time it takes for your eyebrows to heal by themselves.
Can you get microblading if you’re pregnant?
We'd advise against getting this treatment if you're pregnant. One reason being that that it could increase the appearance of hyperpigmentation which some people can suffer from during pregnancy.
Why does microblading disappear during healing?
When the microblading tool pierces and damages the skin to insert the pigment, the body’s first reaction is to try and heal the light injury by scabbing over the dermal layer of the skin. It's for this reason that in the first seven to fourteen days you could well see some shedding or flaking of the skin. This is perfectly normal and though it may result in some fading, the pigment will reappear (a little lighter) once the healing process is fully complete.
How do you patch test for microblading?
We never overlook the details when it comes to safety and all of our fully qualified beauticians are trained to gather as much information about your allergies, past reactions and any skin conditions before we proceed with the treatment.
For microblading, this means introducing some of the pigment to an inconspicuous patch of skin (such as the scalp) some time before the treatment and then closely monitoring it for any adverse reactions.
Our staff are full of passion and will guide you through the patch test during your consultation to answer any questions you may have.
