Potential Risks and Complications
We use new needles, safe and sterilized tools to ensure that there arise no complications. Clients should diligently follow the pre and post-care procedures to minimize all risk and complications. People who are sensitive to hair dyes, metals (gold, nickel or silver) and topical cosmetic products should conduct a color patch test. It should be done a week before the appointment.
FAQs about Microblading
Is it necessary to go for a touch-up session?
The healing process will leave an effect on your microblading. A touch-up session will ensure that your brows are fully pigmented and natural-looking. The color usually fades after the healing period, and it is essential to go for a second session. The areas which didn’t turn out well after the first session will be refilled, more strokes added, and brow thickness will be adjusted. Often oily skin will lighten the color which gets corrected in the touch-up visit. The session will ensure that your brow stays perfect for the whole year.
Can the touch-up be done before four weeks?
The pigment settles in only after four weeks, and the tissues take time to heal. Going for a touch-up session before four weeks will lead to scar damage.
Will it be painful?
The pain level ranges from mild to zero. The technician applies a topical anesthetic before and during the treatment to numb the brow area. Every client reacts differently to pain and anesthesia. Clients may see a slight swelling and redness after the procedure in that area. However, it gradually heals.
How long will the effect last?
Microblading is a semi-permanent treatment as the pigments are not deeply implanted into your skin. It usually lasts one-three years. The lasting effect depends on your skincare routine, skin type (oily, dry, normal or combination), color retention capabilities and age. Using glycolic acid or AHA products will fade your pigment faster. Visiting for a touch-up every 12-18 months will keep it natural and fresh.
What if I don’t like the outcome?
Communicate your brow technician about the pigment, shape, structure and style that you want. Our artists will try their best to bring in maximum satisfaction. However, we all have asymmetrical faces which may lead to uneven appearance. We will fix it by color correction and pigment discoloration during the touchup session.
