How long does it last?
Your microbladed brows will last for as long as you maintain them. Usually about 12-18 months before a touch up is required.
How long does it take?
The procedure takes roughly about 2 hours, depending on how you want your brows to be completed Please allow a solid 2 and a half hour window for your appointment. We likely won’t need that much time, but Daly likes to take all the time a client might need.
How often do I need a touch-up?
Touch-ups are recommended every 6 months, to keep the color fresh and the strokes crisp. Some people can go longer before getting a touch-up, so it all depends on you.
Does it hurt?
Some people say that they do not feel anything and all, and some people say there is some discomfort associated with the procedure. A topical anesthetic is used to numb the area, and then reapplied as needed.
What should I do after the procedure?
Follow the aftercare instructions given to you. You will also receive an aftercare kit after the treatment is complete.
Do I need to take time off from work?
No. There’s no downtime associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
How long does it take to heal?
Healing time varies from person to person. Usually, it takes about a week to ten days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off (just like a tattoo). Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin. A good month should pass before we consider the process complete.
What’s the process like?
Microblading is a two step treatment, consisting of an initial procedure and then a perfecting touch-up after 4 to 6 weeks. After we take your before photo, we shape your eyebrows and decide on the color. Shortly after that, a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure comfort. Once you’re numb, the procedure begins and Daly will implant the pigment into your epidermis. During healing, it’s normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up in place. The process is considered to be complete 4 weeks after the first touch up.
What can’t I do after the procedure?
The number one thing Daly cannot stress enough is please DO NOT TOUCH your microbladed brows for at least 7 to 10 days! Touching your brows interrupts the healing process and you will be left with a less than desirable result once your brows have healed. You are also advised to keep the skin clean and dry—that means no swimming, sweating or otherwise getting the area wet; no tanning or prolonged sun exposure; no picking or peeling the tattoo. You can still wash your hair and face and once they’re healed up, you treat them as your own.
What kind of pigments are used?
All the colors are iron-oxide based and have been FDA approved. A wide range of colors are available so that Daly can help you choose what works best for your facial and hair color.
What if I don’t like it?
There are several things we can do. Your eyebrows can be modified to a point. Daly will work with you until you are satisfied with your results. Additional charges may apply.
