FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING TAKE?
For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about two and a half to three hours. During this treatment, we will shape and style your eyebrows to your desired look and go through pigment color selection. Once you are satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure. We invite you back for your second session four to six weeks later for any minor necessary touch ups. This session will take approximately one and a half to two hours to complete.
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
Since microblading does not implant pigments into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the treatment will naturally fade over time. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the treatment. Patients who tan or use products with AHA or Glycolic Acid will see results fade faster as your skin will resurface sooner. We recommend refreshing your microbladed eyebrows with a touch up every 12-18 months.

IS MICROBLADING PAINFUL?
Ah, the most asked question about Microblading in Broken Arrow OK. Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area and topped up throughout the process. Some clients may feel slight discomfort, but the process is relatively painless. Depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches, very mild, light sunburn to not feeling anything. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area are typical.

HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING TAKE TO HEAL?
It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about one month for the color to fully set in. The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal and part of the healing process.
In the days following your treatment, the eyebrows will continue to be dark, and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. You will see the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
DO I NEED A TOUCH UP SESSION?
Yes. A touch-up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and the outcome will vary. Specific areas may not pick up during the first session and will need refilling. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch-up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year.
