Microblading lasts for about 18 months, depending on your skin and lifestyle. You can do additional touch ups to extend the duration of the treatment.
Most people report little or no pain during microblading, but everyone experiences pain differently. Some people describe the feeling of microneedles in their skin like light cat scratches or papercuts. After the microblading treatment, you might experience redness and slight swelling - most people describe it as a feeling similar to a light sunburn.

Microblading is a two-step process: the initial procedure and the microblading touch up. The first session will take about 2,5 hours. After 6 weeks, you will need to do a touch up. This second session takes about 1.5 - 2 hours.
The Timi microblading procedure is a unique, customer-focused process where your desires are at the center.
The first step is a phone call for free advice. Discuss with Ms Chau, the founder of Timi and our Eyebrow Artist, about your brows and what you wish to do. Chau will ask you specific questions about your skin complexion, your hair color, etc
This call is free and will take between 5 and 20 minutes.
Once you have made up your mind, you are most welcome to make an appointment.
You will then meet with Chau and have a more detailed face to face discussion about your expectations, for about 10 to 15 minutes. Some eyebrow salons skip this step and go right into microblading, but at Timi we believe that this initial talk is a very important step in the microblading procedure, as each customer is special and may have specific desires. You may want your new eyebrows thicker or slimmer, lighter or darker than the academic standards.
On this basis, Chau then draws a future eyebrow shape. She uses the PhiBrows application to catch the geometry of your face and she designs your perfect brows.
This design is submitted to the customer’s approval. If you like it, we go to the next step. But if you don’t, you can take all the time needed to consider, to comment, and Chau will modify the style accordingly, until you really love it !
This step generally takes between 20 and 60 minutes – usually closer to 20’.
Once you really love the suggested design, the artist proceeds with microblading : she draws hair-like strokes with pigment in the upper layers of the skin. The pigment is placed with a handheld tool that has 6 to 14 microneedles. This doesn’t hurt like a regular tattoo; most people compare it to plucking eyebrows with a tweezer.
This takes about 60 to 90 minutes.
Our eyebrow artist is PhiBrows certified, with the highest level : Royal Artist. She uses specialist tools, and materials that don’t contain heavy metals and are not tested on animals.
The next stage of the microblading procedure is aftercare. Aftercare is absolutely essential for a good microblading result. During your initial treatment, your microblading specialist will explain you everything you have to do.
After the first session, it takes about 1 to 2 weeks for the surface of the brows to heal. After about 4 weeks the skin tissue inside the brow will be completely healed too.
Right after the first treatment your brows will look a bit red and (too) dark. Don’t worry, the colour will fade by up to 40%. You will notice slight scabbing, do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. After about 6 weeks, you can come back for the microblading touch-up.
The second part of the treatment, the touch up, is needed to finish the process. It is part of the microblading procedure and it is included in the price. During the the touch up, the eyebrow specialist will refine your brows, refresh the colour tones and correct any irregularities in the hair strokes. Only when you complete the treatment with a microblading touch up, your brows will prolong their perfect look.
This second session takes place after about 6 weeks and lasts for about 1,5 - 2 hours. The exact timing will vary from person to person depending on your skin type and the ink colour. It is important to wait at least 4 weeks after the first session, because that’s how long it takes for the scar tissue to heal and for the colour to set in. Only when the skin is fully healed, the eyebrow specialist can see whether all the areas are filled with pigment and whether extra strokes are needed. If you have an oily skin, a deeper shade wmay be added during the touch up - as oil tends to lighten the pigment.
