Frequently asked questions
How is Best Brows different from microblading?
The tool we use to introduce the pigment into the skin is different than the microblading technique. Also, in the healed results, pigment retention is much greater, true to color and last a lot longer. This technique is less invasive and less traumatic to the skin. Microblading also requires A LOT of touch ups which eventually you will no longer be able to have ANY enhancements added to your brows as the pigment will no longer hold.
Do the results really look that different from those of microblading?
They are both permanent makeup but completely different methods of implanting the pigment. We have a lot more precision because it’s a ‘one point’ starting point which gives us the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin. We can be more creative and go beyond simple hair strokes to obtain natural healed results. Microblading technique has to reinforce the "cuts" several times in order to achieve hair stroke looking results just below the surface...which again is creating more scar tissue each time that cut is reinforced and eventually you will NOT be able eligible for brow enhancements from anyone.
How long does the procedure take?
It takes about 2 hours. It is very detailed work. The hair strokes are extremely fine and require a lot of precision and patience. Some individuals may require multiple sessions along with different needles and pigments to accomplish best results. (Additional fees will be applied).
Is it painful?
We numb in the beginning of the session and throughout the procedure to ensure maximum comfort. Please take into consideration that when the hormone levels are high in women [a.k.a. around you period time], the skin can be a bit more tender.
How long is the healing time?
The most important are the first 3-4 days of healing. All in all, it takes 7 to 10 days depending on your age, skin type and how sensitive you may be.
How long do the results last?
Can I have Botox or chemical peels before or after my procedure?
No Botox for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to your application and 3 weeks after. No chemical peels 45 days before or after procedure.
Can I have alcohol and/or wax prior to my procedure?
Absolutely no alcohol or caffeine 24-hours before application. No brow waxing or tinting 3 days prior to procedure.
What if Microblading didn't work for me?
Due to our process being completely different than Microblading, we have found that our technique works on EVERY ONE...from oily skin, scars,etc. Microblading is just below the surface making it impossible to stay on oily skin or cutting through scars. Our technique penetrates much deeper for lasting results.
Can you fix botched work of another microblading technician?
We can absolutely fix “botched ” work if it’s in the hair stroke technique family. On the other hand, “block” brows or solid tone brows are a bit more difficult to fix. We set realistic expectations in those cases. It might require multiple sessions before achieving a good result. Most Microblading corrections will require a darker pigment in order for it to be visible. A consultation is highly suggested prior to. Please keep in mind each time a procedure is done, the pigment will have less retention due to scar tissue. At some point, we may no longer be able to perform services.
What if I have oily skin?
How do you determine the best shape for me?
There is only one perfect brow shape – it’s the one measured for your face and your face only. We do not believe in cookie-cutters brow where others use stencils...we are artists and customize each and every brow for the most natural looking results. We are unique, so should be our brows.
