What is Microblading?
Microblading, a semipermanent procedure, is the art of embedding pigment beneath the skin with a specialized and sterile tool to create the illusion of strategically placed hair strokes for fuller and enhanced brows.
How does Microblading work?
A series of strategically placed superficial cuts filled with pigment collectively work to create darker, fuller brows.
Does Microblading hurt?
Discomfort is minimal and a numbing ointment is used to insure a painless procedure. Most would compare the degree of discomfort to the feeling felt when threading their brows.
How long does Microblading take?
There are several stages which include; numbing, outlining the desired shape, the actual process of Microblading, and the fine tuning of the finished process. This usually takes roughly 2 hours.
What happens after Microblading?
Like any tattoo, swelling and redness is unavoidable. You may experience an intensified vibrancy from the pigment causing a temporary darkness to your brows. As they heal, the swelling will desist, the vibrancy will settle, and the colour will restore to a natural finish. For best results, please follow the detailed aftercare instructions linked here.
How much does Microblading cost?
Please refer to our services page.
How will I know if I need a touch up?
The best results generally come from a two step process. Touch ups allow us to analyze how the color regenerates beneath the skin and add in areas that may have healed incorrectly. Healed results are unique to each client and we do our best to create a consistent experience. Touch ups are beneficial for color restoration, shape correction, and/or any fine tuning the client desires and are highly recommended.
Do different skin types react differently to Microblading?
In short, yes. However, healed results are unique to each client. In our experience, dry skin typically heals to a finer(crisp) finish, while oily skin typically leads to a thicker(soft) healed stroke. Results vary and can be attributed to a number of factors including; skin type, aftercare, and environmental exposure.
Are there any reasons why I may be ineligible for Microblading?
You must be 18+ to receive a service at Perfect Frame. As a safety precaution, we refrain from working on individuals who are pregnant or nursing. If you have previously microbladed eyebrows by another artist or are a male client, we do require a visual consultation via email before you are eligible to book an appointment. This is to ensure expectations and achievable results coincide with one another. If you are diabetic, you must insure your diabetes is well controlled. High blood sugar levels can complicate the healing process. We also refrain from working on individuals who are going through chemotherapy because they are at higher risks of bleeding and infection.
How long does Microblading last?
Approximately 18-24 months with proper aftercare and follow up appointment(s). Skin type and lifestyle can effect the longevity of your cosmetic tattoo - we can not guarantee specific results.
What is the industry standard for gratuity?
Gratuity is neither mandatory or expected, but is appreciated and fully left to the discretion of the client.
Do you offer in-person consultation?
Due to the high volume of clientele we offer same day consultations that are included in the deposit fee. Any concerns and questions can also be addressed by emailing in a clear photo of your eyebrows to firstname.lastname@example.org for a free online consultation.
Is there parking available?
Parking is available adjacent to the Salon Republic with entrances on Ivar Avenue and DeLongpre Avenue. Handicapped parking is available on every floor, and these spaces are located close to the elevators. We validate for a portion of the time.
