Does It hurt?
How long does it last?
Microblading is a semi-permanent method of tattooing that ideally lasts up to 2 years in the skin depending on the skin type. This technique requires an eight-week touch up after the initial session to complete the brows. Additionally, clients must return annually for a color boosting session to touch up any color that may have faded. You should plan to come back in for a touch-up appointment about 8 weeks after your first session.
How long is one session?
You should expect to spend about 2.5 hours (3 hours for nano) at your first appointment. What will take the most time is mapping your brows, the actual application of the pigment itself is relatively quick. Touch ups and preliminary consultation appointments also require less time than the first visit.
