Honesty is the best policy. And here at Royal Brows, we make it our #1 priority to offer transparency, education, and information to every client and student who walks in our door. Which is why it’s time to talk about a dicey subject in the microblading industry…pigments.
Lately, we’ve seen so many new and “inexpensive” companies edging their way into the pigment game. And because pigments are currently unregulated, a lot of these newbie companies cut safety corners — by not doing proper research, say, and using cheap ingredients to keep prices down. Frankly, it’s a problem that puts clients in harm’s way, and reflects badly on professionals, like us, who work to deliver only top-notch, safe, high-quality products and services.
Here at Royal Brows, continuing education is everything – even if that means flying across the globe to take a course from the best of the best in our field. (Yes, we do that!) And it’s exactly how we expanded our knowledge of quality pigmentation.
What to know before you go…
• We use Brow Daddy pigments – world-class quality with a pristine reputation for safety.
• Our pigments are vegan.
• They don’t contain the heavy metals and toxins found in 98% of semi-permanent pigment brands.
• Yes, they’re more expensive…but for good reason. They’re CLEAN.
• Brow Daddy pigments are free of Tartrazine – an artificial color additive that can cause highly allergic reactions. Without it, the risk of experiencing an adverse reaction is 0 out of one million procedures.
Want to avoid the disaster of brows that eventually turn blue, green, or pink after healing? Always inquire about the pigments your artist will be using BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT. And take comfort in knowing that at Royal Brows , you – and your brows – are in good hands.
It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in.
If it is performed properly, microblading should last anywhere between 18 and 24 months. Once pigment from the procedure begins to noticeably fade, you’ll need to come back for a “touch-up” application. Touch-ups can be necessary every six months or every year, depending on your skin type and preferred look.
We use a topical anesthetic so there is very little discomfort. In fact, many clients fall asleep during the treatment!
The cost of a touch up depends on the length of time since your previous treatment. The longer the time, the more pigment has likely faded, the more work needs to be done to touch up your brows. We will review all pricing with you in your consultation! ?
You will have very clear instructions for aftercare, which is essential in the healing process in order to achieve the best results. There are certain limitations regarding sun exposure, sweating, going in a pool, etc. for a brief time after the treatment.
