Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Microshading?
Unlike microblading, microshading does not tattoo full strokes along the browline, but rather small points to “shade” in sparse areas. Instead of creating the illusion of individual hairs, microshading fills in the entire brow with light pigmentation through the use of a fine-tipped needle.
The results will not appear to be individual eyebrow hairs, but rather a shading that more closely resembles penciling or powdering your brows with makeup, that microshading provides for a more airbrushed and powdered brow look.”
Brows will appear extra bold following the appointment, but the color will soften approximately 30 percent over the following 14 days.
Depending on your skin type, the results can last between one to one and a half years. (Oily skin types may need a touchup sooner than drier skin types.)
How Do You Maintain Microshading?
We advise all clients to continue cleaning up unruly hairs by tweezing or threading, but not waxing. Waxing tends to remove skin cells, and can make the brow color fade faster. Be sure to use SPF too, and avoid using harsh exfoliants and ingredients that promote cell turnover on brows.
