Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a semi-permanent Eyebrow enhancement designed to give you fuller, natural-looking brows. By using a very tiny blade to deposit pigment into the skin, we can create crisp, hair-like strokes. Microblading is a great solution for clients who already have a good amount of eyebrow hair but may have some patchiness, or sparse areas that they want to have filled in while still maintaining a very natural look.

WHAT IS OMBRÉ POWDER BROWS?

This technique differs from Microblading in that we create a misty, powder-filled brow similar to the look of makeup, as opposed to hair-like strokes. The tails of the brow are darker, and fade into a light start to the brow, giving that perfect ombre makeup effect. Ombré Powder Brows are much more suitable for clients with oily skin, deep/dark complexions, and people with very little – to no eyebrow hair. Also, for clients who prefer a more defined eyebrow shape.

WHAT IS COMBINATION BROWS?

The best of both worlds. Microblading + Shading is perfect for clients that would like a bolder and more made-up look in addition to the hair strokes created with Microblading. Combination Brows work beautifully on clients with minimal eyebrow hair, that require their brows to be reshaped (ie. no arch, no tail, or very thin, over-plucked brows). This technique adds more depth to just Microblading alone in areas where there is no hair, to give a 2-toned effect and add more dimension.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Please allow two to three hours for this session (this includes time spent on the consultation, paperwork, numbing, etc). The process itself will take around 30-60 minutes.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO YOU NEED?
Eyebrow enhancements are a multi-step process. Touch ups are required 4-8 weeks after the first session. Please book this at the same time as your initial appointment. During the touch-up, the eyebrows are re-measured and analyzed to check whether more strokes need to be added.

Touch-ups are recommended 1-2 times a year to keep your brows looking fresh and to retain the color.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Treatments are semi-permanent and will last up to three years depending on the skin type.  The frequency of touch-ups needed depends on factors such as skin type, pigment selection, lifestyle (sun exposure, smoking, acidic skin care products, chemical peels, etc). Please note that individual results may vary and there is no guarantee as to how long it lasts as each individual has unique skin, and will hold pigments differently.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
Please allow your freshly tattooed brows around seven to ten days to heal. The first week following your treatment, the pigment will appear much more bold and dark than how it will look once it has fully healed. Please keep in mind this is a two-part procedure, therefore a touch-up is essential for every client to see the final result after healing.

DOES IT HURT?
To provide some relief, we will use a topical numbing agent to reduce any discomfort that comes with the procedure. Our clients are usually pleased to discover that it is no more painful than tweezing or threading.

IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT?
You must be 18 years or older at the time of your appointment

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost of Microblading at Fixabrow is $575, Microshading is $675, and the Initial 4-8 Week Touch ups are complimentary.
