Is the touchup appointment necessary?

A touchup appointment at 8 weeks is necessary, as everyone heals differently and the outcome will vary. Certain areas may fade during the healing process and will need to be

filled in. Pigment colour may need to be adjusted, making the brow darker, thicker or to add strokes. Individuals with oily skin may require a deeper shade, as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly the touchup session, is to refine the brows to ensure they look perfect and retain the colour, giving you longer lasting brows.

Initial Appointment For the first appointment, the entire procedure should take between 3 hours, but there is always an additional hour if needed. The duration of the appointment is only an estimate and varies for each client. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid scheduling any plans a couple hours following the appointment, to prevent the artist from having to rush.

Touchup Appointment

The 8 week follow-up appointment in most cases, is a minor touchup and takes between 1.5-2 hours depending on what the client requires. An additonal hour is added if needed. As well, it is recommended to keep your schedule free of any commitments or plans post appointment, to avoid the artist having to rush.

These procedures (Microblading, Ombre/Powder Brow, Microshading) are considered

semi-permanent, as the pigments are implanted into the superficial layer of the skin, not like the traditional body tattoos.

Therefore, the brows will naturally fade overtime and clients will only require annual touchups (between 12-24 months) to maintain their brow shape and colour.

What causes brows to fade?

Sun Exposure - over time the UV rays can cause fading. It is important to apply an SPF of 50 on your eyebrows, when directly in the sun.

Facial Products - Retinol, Brightening Serums (Vitamin C and E), AHA's (Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Glycholic Acid, Salicylic Acid) and Exfoliants.

These products increase cell turnover rate and will shorten the life of your cosmetic tattoo, by fading. Therefore, avoid applying these products on or around your eyebrows. Your face in fine, just avoid your brow area.

As well, oily skin and some medical conditions.
