Micro Needling FAQS
What is Micro Needling?
Micro Needling treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-”injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin. Microneedling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes, depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Wrinkles and Fine lines Stretch Marks Acne scars and scarring Keloid Scars Hair Regeneration Burns Surgery Scars
MICRO NEEDLING Firms, Strengthens, Lifts and Rejuvenates the skin. Skin tone and texture has A more youthful appearance. high levels OF collagen and elastin ARE PRODUCED.
Is There any downtime?
After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After three days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
WHO ISNT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS TREATMENT?
Microneedling treatment has not been evaluated in the following patient populations, as such, precautions should be taken when determining whether to treat: scars and stretch marks less than one year old; women who are pregnant or nursing; keloid scars; patients with history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; patients with history of actinic (solar) keratosis; patients with history of herpes simplex infections; diabetics or patients with wound-healing deficiencies; patients on immunosuppressive therapy; and skin with presence of raised moles or warts or targeted area.
MICROBLADING IS THE ARTISTIC TECHNIQUE OF TATTOOING INDIVIDUAL HAIR STROKES WITH A HANDHELD TOOL CALLED A MICROBLADE. UNLIKE TRADITIONAL TATTOOING, WHICH USES A MACHINE, MICROBLADING ARTISTS HAND DRAW EACH HAIR TO MATCH THE COLOR AND COARSENESS OF YOUR EYEBROWS. WHAT YOU WILL GET IS GORGEOUS, NATURAL LOOKING EYEBROWS.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
MICROBLADED EYEBROWS CAN LAST anywhere from 6-18 months, DEPENDING ON YOUR SKIN'S RETENTION.

HOWEVER, IF YOU NEED TO RESCHEDULE AND DO SO AT LEAST 48 HOURS OR MORE BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT, IT WILL TRANSFER TO YOUR NEW APPOINTMENT DATE. IT WILL ONLY TRANSFER ONE TIME AND BECOMES NON-REFUNABLE IF YOU MOVE YOUR APPOINTMENT AGAIN. IF IT IS WITHIN 48 HOURS OF YOUR APPOINTMENT DATE (based on your apt time), IT IS NONREFUNDABLE, NO EXCEPTIONS. YOU MUST PAY YOUR INVOICE WITHIN 48 HOURS OF RECEIVING IT. IF YOU DO NOT, YOU MAY LOSE YOUR APPOINTMENT TIME. THIS IS A LARGE AMOUNT OF TIME RESERVED IN YOUR NAME AND NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO FILL LAST MINUTE. I APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
For All other services above $50, a credit card is required on file, if you do not show up for the service 25% of the service fee is charged. We request 24 hour notice if you do need to reschedule (extenuating circumstances aside).
NO CALL/NO SHOWS: If you have a touch up appointment and you no call/no show you forfeit that appointment. To reschedule you must pay a fee prior to coming back in. I block off 2 hours for your touch up which I can then not fill if you do not show.

IT USUALLY TAKES AROUND 2- 2 1/2 HOURS, WITH MOST OF THE TIME SPENT GOING OVER COLORS AND DRAWING EYEBROW SHAPES. THE MICROBLADING PORTION LASTS 30-45 MINUTES.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT, I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE MY CLIENTS TO CHECK OUT EYEBROW SHAPES AND HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IN YOUR IMPROVED EYEBROWS. I WILL WORK WITH YOU TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR BEST BROWS. IN THE WEEK BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT, I RECOMMEND AVOIDING BLOOD THINNERS, ASPIRIN, ALCOHOL, INJECTABLES (BOTOX etc) OR USING RETINOL CREAMS.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
YOU'LL BE ABLE TO WEAR YOUR NEW BROWS BACK TO BRUNCH! IN THE FIRST 7 DAYS, YOU'LL NEED TO AVOID GETTING THEM WET, WORKING OUT OR WEARING BROW MAKEUP. IT TAKES ABOUT 30 DAYS TO COMPLETELY HEAL, IN WHICH TIME YOU MAY EXPERIENCE MILD SCABBING.
WHAT IS THE AFTERCARE?
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. I RECOMMEND WASHING THE AREA TWICE A DAY WITH ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP AND THEN DRYING THEM, LEAVING DRY (NO OINTMENT). REFER TO YOUR AFTERCARE SHEET PROVIDED AT TIME OF APPOINTMENT. WE WILL GO OVER ALL AFTERCARE CUSTOMIZED FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS AND RESULTS.
WHEN SHOULD I GET A TOUCH UP? HOW MUCH IS IT?

DOES MICROBLADING WORK ON ALL SKIN TONES AND SKIN TYPES?
YES! MICROBLADING WORKS ON ALL SKIN TONES AND COLORS. I CUSTOMIZE THE COLOR YOU NEED. HOWEVER, IF YOU SUFFER FROM KELOID DISORDER, I DO NOT RECOMMEND MICROBLADING.
DOES IT LOOK LIKE REAL HAIR?
YES! EACH HAIR IS DRAWN INDIVIDUALLY BY HAND TO GIVE THE MOST NATURAL LOOK POSSIBLE., YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT HOW NATURAL IT LOOKS.
NO MORE DRAWING MY EYEBROWS EVERY MORNING? FOR REAL?
YES! THIS TREATMENT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, FOR THE BETTER! THAT'S WHY I AM SO PASSIONATE AT ARCH AND LINE ABOUT THE WORK I DO. Microblading mimics the appearance of hair strokes and with hair you have spaces between, depending on the look you prefer some will choose to pencil over or on some areas to give a more "DONe" and less natural look.
