Q: What is Microblading?

A: Microblading also known as feather-touch tattooing is a semi-permanent tattoo that is created by using a manual tool with numerous fine needles to create hair like strokes throughout the brow. The strokes are then washed over with a pigment. This technique does not go as deep into the skins layers as a normal tattoo and is therefore considered semi- permanent. If you have blonde, sparse or traumatised (over tweezed) brows, or if you are after a dark defined, full look without the daily maintenance – Microblading is for you.

Q: How long will it last?

A: Cosmetic tattoo results vary from person to person, as a general guide, it usually lasts up to 12 months before requiring a colour refresh. The duration depends on your skin type, lifestyle and exposure to certain elements, which can cause the ink to fade faster than others. Guests with oiler skin, increased sun exposure, use of Retin A, Frequent skin treatments containing AHA's and some medications will cause the area to fade faster, and in some cases prevent the hair strokes from staying at all. This will be determined at your Microblading Consultation. Some guests may need a small touch up at 6 months due to the above.

Q: Can I go to work the next day?

A: Yes. The Procedure will not hinder you from going to work. However, there might be some redness and tenderness & strict cleaning/after care is required so depending on the nature of your work it may be better to plan ahead.

Q: Does it hurt?

A: Slightly, depending on the individual’s pain tolerance. Anaesthetics are used to numb the treatment area throughout the procedure to keep you comfortable. Slight discomfort may be experienced at the beginning of the treatment, but then is mostly painless throughout the rest of the treatment. Before your appointment – it is important to avoid alcohol/aspirin/fish oil capsules, as these will thin the blood and effect the numbing cream.

Q: How will it look straight after the treatment?

A: Immediately after Microblading the colour will appear much darker then when the skin has healed in 7 to 14 day’s time. The colour will lighten up to 40%. The size of the treated area will shrink by 15% and your new brows will look much more natural in appearance over the next 4 weeks with more of a soft powder look.

Q: What do I need to do for aftercare?

A: We cannot stress enough how important it is to follow through with the aftercare 100% to achieve the ultimate result. You will be provided with an aftercare sheet with the clear instructions of what you will need to do. If it’s not listed on the aftercare sheet, do NOT do it.

Q: I have a Special event coming up…..

A: It is recommended to have your initial and perfection appointment done prior to your special event, you should plan to have your initial booking 8-12 weeks before your occasion, to allow time for your touch up and healing.

Q: Age requirement

A: You must be 18 or older to have Microblading tattooing.

Q: Botox & Fillers

A: As these treatments can change the facial symmetry, avoid injectables 4 weeks prior and 4 weeks after your Microblading tattoo appointment.

Q: The End Result

A: The end results will always vary for each individual person, some pencilling/powdering-in may still be needed in some cases. L&B Exclusive makes no guarantee to a guest’s end result, as we have no control over each guest’s unique skin type, structure, their healing process and aftercare commitment. This will be discussed further with you in your consultation. Should additional sessions be required, charge will apply accordingly.
