Commonly Asked Questions

What is Microblading?

When you've exhausted every option from pencils, powders, pigments, gels, to stencils, and your brows are not quite right, consider microblading. This semi-permanent solution for thinning or sparse brows can revolutionize your brow routine. Don't let the name intimidate you; it's a technique that can boost your confidence by ensuring you wake up with perfect brows daily. Discover everything you should know about this treatment that beauty enthusiasts are already raving about.

Unlike traditional tattoos, microblading is a specialised form of eyebrow tattooing that involves implanting pigment beneath the skin using a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. By creating hair-like strokes with this tool, the goal is to replicate the appearance of natural eyebrow hairs. Unlike a regular tattoo, the pigment is not deeply embedded, which is why microblading, when done correctly, is not permanent. This technique is customizable to your preferences and can be adjusted over time based on your evolving style. At The Little Hair Studio, we personalize your microblading during each touch-up session to complement your skin tone and the current season, just like you would with your hair.

Does Microblading hurt?

Many clients inquire about the sensation of microblading, and we would characterised it as slightly 'scratchy' rather than painful. It is advisable to avoid scheduling a treatment if you are pre-menstrual, as the skin tends to be more sensitive during this time.

How will I look directly afterwards?

After the treatment, the majority of our clients will appear completely normal with a little redness. However, individuals with rosacea or highly sensitive skin may experience some redness around the treatment area for a few hours, though this usually fades quickly. Most individuals can return to their regular activities immediately after the session.

How long does Microblading take to heal?

Your eyebrows will undergo several changes during the healing process. Initially, they may appear slightly darker around day 4/5 and then gradually lighten in the second week. This is because the pigment is concealed by the healing skin and is completely normal. By the 3rd week, the colour or will return, and by week 4, you will see the fully healed outcome. Some light shedding is expected, and approximately 30% of the pigment will fade after the initial treatment, which can be replenished during your follow-up session.

How long does Microblading take?

We schedule 2 & half to 3hrs. The longest part is the mapping and happy with the shape before we begin.

What is the aftercare?

To help minimise scabbing, use a clean cotton-ball to lightly dab the micro-bladed area with distilled water a few times per hour for the remainder of the day.

DAYS 1-7:
Wash the micro-bladed area twice per day followed by applying the micro-blading aftercare ointment.
At the start and end of each day, use your clean fingertips and a mild antibacterial soap, like Cetaphil, to gently cleanse your eyebrows for 10-15 seconds.

Avoid using any cleansing products that contain exfoliants or acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA).

Keep in mind the cleansing shouldn't be a thorough scrub-down, it just needs to be done by rubbing the micro-bladed area in a soft, smooth manner.

When rinsing, be sure to rinse every trace of soap from the micro-bladed area.

Dry the entire eyebrow area completely by blotting it with a clean tissue.

Use a clean finger to apply a small amount of the micro-blading aftercare ointment to the micro-bladed area. Do not apply the ointment unless the area is dry.

Less is more when considering how much ointment to apply; the amount applied to each eyebrow should be comparable in size to half of a grain of rice.

Micro-blading aftercare ointment should only be applied twice per day following the washes to avoid suffocating the skin and interfering with the skin’s natural healing process.

DAYS 8-14:
The aftercare ointment no longer needs to be applied, but continue to gently wash the micro-bladed area each morning and night.

***It's critical to avoid the following for 14 days after your micro-blading procedure.
Touching the micro-bladed area except when washing or applying aftercare ointment.

Scratching, picking or peeling the micro-bladed area, as it can cause scarring and/or colour loss.

Applying any makeup, moisture, lotion, or sunscreen to your eyebrows.

Sun exposure - sun tanning - salon tanning

Laser or chemical peels, and any other form of exfoliation.

Exercise - participating in sports and activities that induce perspiration

Long, hot baths or showers - jacuzzis - saunas - swimming

Applying any creams to your face or neck containing retinol or glycolic acid.

Engaging in tasks like heavy household cleaning where airborne debris can become prevalent.

Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, as it can cause wounds to heal slower.

Transportation in open-air-vehicles where strong wind is likely, for example; driving in cars with windows down, convertibles, motorcycles, bicycles, and boats.

Resume your normal activities except, continue to avoid laser or chemical peels and forms of exfoliation, and any creams containing retinal or glycolic acid until after the completion of your micro-blading touch up appointment, and its healing process as well.

What if I am nervous?

It’s perfectly normal to be a little nervous before your treatment, especially if you haven’t had any permanent makeup previously.  We understand that this is a big step for a lot of clients and hope that you feel as at ease as possible, we are here to help so please do ask us if you have any questions or concerns at all.
