FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How long will my micro-blading brow rejuvenation last?
A: The pigment deposited in your skin will fade with time. The amount of time is unique to your skin-type, body chemistry, lifestyle, and skincare. It is estimated that your cosmetic tattoo/micro-pigmentation can last 1-5 years. As gradual fading is expected, some people may prefer or require to have a refresh once a year. Lighter pigment colours will fade faster than dark pigment colours. Oily skin will expel pigment faster than dry skin. Sun exposure increases rate of colour fading.
Q: Do I need to schedule consultation prior to booking my procedure?
A: Only if you have visible existing cosmetic tattoo pigment. Otherwise; consultations are optional for those who are unsure about booking the procedure. During the procedure appointment, your artist works with you to carefully design your new brows with your approval at every stage in the process. If you have visible existing cosmetic tattoo/micro-blading pigment, please schedule a consultation prior to your service or arrange to send a high definition make-up free photo to the artist.)
