What is Microblading? How Long Will Microblading Last? Complete 6 FAQ

What Is Microblading - Lux Beauty Permanent Makeup Arizona


Microblading is a manual method of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing by applying pigment with a thin blade into the surface upper layer of the dermis. The result is natural-looking eyebrows. In fact, it is so natural that no one can tell the difference between microblading and natural brows. Microblading service creates sophisticated, subtle, natural-looking eyebrows by imitating the strokes of eyebrow hairs and following your natural hair growth direction.

Microblading Services is best on normal to dry skin types. It isn’t ideal for clients that have oily skin. If you are a client that has oily skin please see our ombré or combination brow service. Microblading can be used to enhance the shape of natural eyebrows, to fill in the eyebrow gaps, or to replace eyebrows lost due to alopecia, chemotherapy, and/or other medical conditions. Eyebrow color is chosen to match your facial features and natural hair color.

For all techniques, two initial sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks apart are strongly encouraged to achieve optimal results.

How long will Microblading last?

Microblading usually lasts anywhere from 9 months to 3 years. Factors such as skin type, iron deficiency, pigment color (lighter colors fade faster or have less contrast) and sun exposure can affect time at which these pigments are broken down. For best results, it is recommended that you follow your aftercare instructions and see your artist for your tattoo booster annually or as needed. Clients with oily skin might need touch-ups more often. Final results are NOT guaranteed as everyone has different skin, and retains pigment differently. Microblading usually takes 2 to 3 appointments and touch ups are recommended within 4-8 weeks. Please note that it is your responsibility to come back for your touch up before the 8 week mark. Any treatments after 12 weeks will be considered Color Booster, which has a higher fee.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for Microblading?

Microblading may not work well on clients with oily skin types or skin with large pores. Microblading heals best on normal to dry skin types. Increased oil production can cause hair strokes to blur and heal lighter and more powdery than you would like. Powder/Ombre brow would be a better approach for oily skin.

Mature Skin: Tends to be thinner and more delicate which may increase bleeding and loss of pigment.

Darker Skin: There may be less contrast and visible detail in the strokes.

Previously Tattooed Brows: Previous tattooing must be nearly invisible. Scar tissue associated with previous tattooing or tattoo removal may affect pigment retention. Before scheduling, your artist will ask you to send your brows pictures and obtain some necessary details about your previous permanent makeup.

You CAN NOT receive Microblading if you are:

Pregnant or nursing

Use retinol based products on brow areas within the past month.

Are currently using Accutane or have used Accutane within the past year.

Have a freshly tanned/sunburned face.

Are on blood thinning medications.

Have an issue with healing.

If you have any symptoms or signs of cold, flu, or any fatigues or body aches.

All medical conditions are always discussed by your specialist prior to the Microblading procedure.

Does Microblading hurt?

Topical anesthetic is used to maximize comfort during the procedure. Every person has different pain tolerance. Receiving the procedure during your menstrual cycle usually increases your sensitivity. Your specialist will make it as painless as possible.

What can affect my Microblading results?

Bleeding during the procedure. It is very important that you follow pre care instructions to help minimize bleeding. Pre procedure instructions will be given to you a few days before your treatment.

Smoking: Smokers may notice that their Microblading will fade faster.

Anemia and iron deficiency: Your body will absorb these iron-based pigments more quickly.

Sun exposure: Increased exposure to the sun will cause premature fading. It is recommended that you use sunscreen on your brows after the healing process is complete.

Color of pigment: Lighter colors fade more quickly than darker colors.

How long does the procedure take?

The time can vary depending on the procedure. For the initial appointment 3 hours. The most of that time is spent choosing colors, design and allowing the topical anesthetics to take effect.
