Does Microblading hurt?

While there is some minor pain involved, microblading is much less painful than other forms permanent cosmetics. We try to make this process gentle and nonintrusive. First, is applied a topical anaesthetic, and then we only work with the surface of the skin.

How long does each treatment take ?

It will take approximately 2 hours for your initial appointment. It should include a consultation and a review of a persons medical history. Time is then used for determining the best  designer and pre drawing, colour selection, naming, the actual procedure, photos, aftercare instruction.

(If you currently tint your brows, please do so before your appointment)

How long will semi-permanent makeup last?

Microblading lasts different amounts of time with every person. Pigments can last in your skin up to 2 years, but we recommend a re-touch once a year. Pigment loss may be caused by dry or oily skin, facial cleaning regimens, and exposure to the sun. Harsh chemical peels and grainy facial scrubs also weaken the skin’s surface, contributing to colour loss and more frequent touch ups.

The beauty of “microblading ” is the option to change colour and shape over time.  Your commitment to gentle aftercare for the life of your semi-permanent procedure will provide longer lasting results, and save you time and money.

How safe is this procedure?

We take pride in the care and safety of each client and our artists. All of our pigments are hypoallergenic. We clean and sterilised after each client, never reusing supplies, blades, gloves etc. All artists are trained and certified in Microblading, as well as blood pathogen hazards, safety, and sanitation requirements.

Can I get microblading while I’m pregnant?

Our policy at ArtFace is we do not perform microblading during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. This is the policy for most permanent makeup artists if you research online. In truth, there is very little scientific medical research on tattoo ink and pregnancy, nor is there any research on the ink we use (the ink in microblading is different from tattoo ink). Until there is clarity on the subject from medical professionals, our policy remains no.
