what the microblading healing process is like
We recommend that a touch up is performed 12-18 months after your initial appointment to keep the color looking vibrant and the microblade strokes looking crisp. Skin cells turn over more frequently on oilier skin types causing the color to fade quicker than drier skin types. For oilier skin types more frequent touch ups may be required which are not included in the original price.
