3D Embroidery/Microblading Eyebrows FAQ's
How long does 3D Embroidery/ Microblading Eyebrow procedure take?
Eyebrow Embroidery is a 2 step process - usually 30-60 days apart. It is very important to complete both visits.
Step 1: The initial procedure takes 1.5-2 hour. During this time, a consultation is undertaken, a color tone chosen and initial outline of the procedure area is drawn on for you to approve. Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, (please note that our faces are NOT symmetrical, as one side is flatter than the other- eyebrows are sisters not twins), however as Certified Brow Artists, we aim to create as much symmetry as possible. The the permanent pigment is then applied with a hand held tool and not a machine.
The end result will depend on 50% pigment and 50% healing. We all heal differently, and what works on one client may not be effective on another. This is why a second visit it so important; it corrects any irregularities in color tones, and makes the look permanent.
Step 2: The second stage of the treatment is called a ‘touch up’ and takes approximately 1 hour. This is scheduled 4-6 weeks after, as it takes that long for the pigment to settle in the skin. It is IMPERATIVE that you complete the touch up treatment, as without it, it will be a job half done and the results will not be optimum. The touch up gives the client an opportunity to get used to the initial finish before a final touch up consolidates the pigment into the skin, thus preventing fading. Color will have faded significantly in these 30 days as the skin heals, peels and fades. The look of the brows in the first 10 days will be quite defined and no indication of the finished result.
Step 3: Occasionally a third visit is necessary for certain clients, 4 weeks later again. This is not uncommon.
