Questions

How long does it take?
Each appointment lasts approximately 2 hours, even though the microstroking itself is approximately 60 minutes. Emphasis is placed on discussing expectations, design, and modifying the brow design. The procedure isn’t started until the design is agreed upon and an outline is drawn on the brows for final approval.

Does it hurt?!
This soft feather stroke etched in skin to resemble brow hairs is done with topical numbing agent to insure the best experience with little to no pain. There are up to two different numbing agents that are repeatedly applied during the procedure to make sure the client experiences as little discomfort as possible. Discomfort will vary from person to person.

Who is the ideal client for microblading/microstroking?
The ideal microblading permanent eyebrow candidate is a non-smoker, in optimal health, healthy skin and can lie face up for one hour.

How long does it take to see the results?
Neat clean crisp hairstrokes are immediately visible in brow line. The results are immediate and fabulous!

What is the healing process like?
Do not shower, workout/sweat, or touch your brows for the first 24 hours after the procedure. After 24 hours, you can workout/sweat and shower. Do not swim, go in a sauna, or put makeup or other products (besides Vaseline or Aquahor)
 on your brows for 10 days after the procedure. Never ever touch treated area without thoroughly washing hands to avoid infection.

How long does it last? Is it permanent?
Microblading can last up to 12-18 months, depending on aftercare, skin type, lifestyle and preference.

Do I need to come back regularly for touch ups?
Touch ups (additional hair strokes and/or richer pigment) are available as a refinement after 4 – 6 weeks, once the initial microblading is healed.

Does the color or pigment ever change?
After about 6 weeks, the true color/pigment will be apparent. A ghosting phase will appear approximately 4 weeks after the microblading procedure where pigment will seem lighter. The pigment is the darkest right after the procedure and will lighten over time.

What kind of training does Lara have?
Lara has been closely trained by Jessica Muro with JM Brow Academy, who has satisfied over 300 clients. A certificate of completion in Safety, Sanitation & Blood-borne Pathogens course was also earned by Lara in tandem, to compliment the very meticulous perfection-based service of microblading.

Can I my eyebrows be waxed or tinted prior to microblading?
If you intend to have your eyebrows waxed or tinted before microblade service please do so one week prior to microblade service as waxing could cause temporary inflammation therefore distorting skin. Also, tinting can interfere with color choosing of pigment used in microblading.
