FAQ

How long does the treatment takes?

The initial session lasts approximatively 3 hours and includes:

  • A consultation to discuss your needs, what look you want to achieve and what
    fits your facial features.
  • Measuring and shaping eyebrows to get your dream look.
  • Choosing and applying the color of pigment that will blend best with your natural
    brows.

Can it help correcting my uneven eyebrows?

It is very normal for eyebrows to be uneven. I will be using several techniques including the
golden ratio to help you create balance and harmony so your eyebrows will appear
even.

Does it hurt?

Each individual’s sensitivity differs but a topical anesthetic cream is applied before
the procedure so the sensation is no more discomforting than tweezing three brows at the
same time. Redness and a slight swelling in the area may occur after the procedure.

How long does it takes to heal?

The healing process last between 10-12 days depending on each individual. During this
time the redness will fade and the color will start getting lighter, completely settling
within 30 days. Click here for post-care instructions for best results.

How long does my microblading last for?

It should last 12-18 months depending on your skin type. Generally, the effects will last
less on oily skin than on dry skin. Sun exposure and smoking will also reduce the
lifetime of your eyebrow tattoo. Click here for post-care instructions

Why and when do I have to do a “touch up”?

The touch up is to go over the strokes or shadow again or replace any that might have
disappeared. The touch up will refine the color, modulate the brows thickness and
perfect the effect to meet your satisfactions. It is advised to come in for the touch
up between 6-8 weeks after the initial session.

Can I bring a friend?

My studio is setup to give an exclusive and focused experience. An extra person can
be very distracting. I need you and me to focus fully on the microblading so that we can
achieve the best possible results. Your friend can set an appointment and come next
time if she would like to get her eyebrows done by me.

What if I do not like the results?

  • Feel free to fully discuss your expectations and desired outcome with me during the
    consultation including shape, color and style.
  • Adjustments may be made during the
    touch up.
  • Microblading is not permanent and will eventually fade away if touch ups are not done.
    not done.
  • Allow your eyebrow to heal before
    making final judgments.

What are the risks and complications?

  • All the micro-blades are brand new, sterile and disposable. They are used one time on you and immediately disposed of.
  • All other tools are either new and disposable, or completely sterilized prior to use, in an environment of the highest sanitary standards, complying with strict rules and regulations concerning health, safety and hygiene.
  • When pre and post care instructions are followed properly the risks of
    complications are minimal.
  • Allergic reaction to pigments are rare but can occurs. If you
    have a sensitive skin that reacts to topical products, make up, silver, gold, hair dyes,
    a pigment patch test should be done days prior to the procedure.
