Frequently asked questions

What is Microblading?


Microblading is a technique of tattooing individual hair strokes with a handheld tool called a microblade. Microblading artists hand draw each hair to match the color and coarseness of your eyebrows. The results are natural looking eyebrows.




How long does it last?


Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 3 years for most people, before it usually needs a touch up. For permanent lips and eyeliner, it lasts 3 to 5 years.




Does it hurt?


Most clients report little or no pain! We use a topical anesthetic before the procedure to numb the affected area. You also have the option of taking two over the counter Tylenol tablets prior to arriving for your appointment to reduce discomfort.

How long is the healing process?


You'll be able to wear your new brows right away! In the first 10 days, you'll need to avoid getting them wet, working out or wearing brow makeup. Learn more about After Care & Healing Process here. It takes about 30 days to completely heal, in which time you may experience mild scabbing. Eyeliner and lip service will be swollen for 2 days after treatment.




What is the After Care?


Stay out of the sun and water while your microblading heals. Avoid chlorine, exfoliation creams, and sun exposure; they may cause your color to fade. We recommend applying a small amount of A&D ointment twice a day. Read more about aftercare here.




When Should I get a Touch Up? What is the cost?


We offer a complimentary follow up touch up between 4-6 weeks of your appointment for microblading and 6-8 wekks for eyeliner and lips. After that, we charge a fee. See pricing for microblading touchups and other services here.




Can I get microblading  while pregnant?


No, we do not recommend microblading while pregnant or breastfeeding.




Who is inelegible for microblading?


Microblading is not recommended for those with oily skin or large pores. If that's you, you may want a shading or combination shading and microblading technique. Inquire about other methods. I do not provide microblading for people: under 18 years old, pregnant or nursing, if you have diabetes, glaucoma, skin diseases such as Shingles, psoriasis or eczema on the area of treatment, allergies to makeup, Keloid disorder, HIV/Hepatitis, skin cancer, hemophilia, or if you're taking skin medications like ro-accutaine and steroids. Please read our complete Terms and Conditions.




Can I get microblading if I have Juvaderm injections/fillers?


We recommend getting permanent makeup first, or ask your Juvederm specialist for clearance.




Can microblading hide a cover up eyebrow tattoo?


Often we cannot. But if the previous tattoo or permanent makeup has faded considerably, sometimes we can. We will have to use a combo or shading technique.




Can microblading hide/cover scars?


It's great for that! But we recommend sending us a photo of your eyebrows without makeup so one of our artists can review and let you know whether you’re a candidate for microblading.




Does microblading work on all skin tones and skin types?


Yes! Microblading works on all skin tones and colors. If you have oily skin, large pores, Keloid disorder, we do not recommend microblading. See our full list of contraindications here.




What is the difference between microblading vs. micropigmentation?


Technically microblading is a form of micropigmentation, but we use a microblade to hand draw individual hair strokes. Micropigmentation specialists use a permanent makeup machine, which offers less control and results in blurrier strokes.




Does it look like real hair?


Yes! Because we hand draw every hair stroke, you'll marvel at this super precise technique.




No more drawing my eyebrows every morning?


Believe it! This treatment transforms people's lives! That's why we're so passionate at Dunia Ghabour about the work we do.
