HOW IS IT DONE
Eyebrow Microblading is a manual method of depositing a small amount of ink in the outer layer of the skin without reaching the dermis. The needle used in manual microblading is 3 times thinner than the one used in machine, which allows to create very fine, crisp hair strokes. The pen-like device yields amazingly natural-looking arches because the needles etch hyper-precise strokes that look like your brow hairs.
Semi-permanent solution (9 to 18 months), fully restore the eyebrow shape, crisp, realistic, natural looking hair strokes, no downtime after treatment, safe application, non-toxic and hypoallergenic materials.
IS THE TOUCH UP SESSION NECESSARY
Yes! A touch up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during the first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!
That means protecting freshly bladed brows from all moisture–no sweaty workouts or washing your face with water. Some patients experience itching and redness during the first week, which Vaseline can alleviate. Brows will look slightly darker at first, but the color will fade 30 to 40 percent. Aftercare ointments are provided during your first appointment. Overall they look great right away and you don’t have to hide.
IS IT PAINFUL
Pain is relative. Some feel more than others. Overall it feels like little scratches. You feel it, but it’s not unbearable. Patients’ brows are prepared with topical numbing cream topped up throughout the process to dull the discomfort.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST
Since microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts 1-2 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment. Patients who tan, use products with AHA or Glycolic Acid will fade faster as your skin will resurface faster. Each individual’s color retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months.
WHO CAN’T HAVE MICROBLADING
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, if you’ve had Botox or other injections less than 3 weeks before treatment, and you must be 18 years or older to get microblading. Do not use tanning beds 3-4 days before the treatment, do not use blood thinners or aspirin, do not drink or use drugs before treatment, and tell your technician about any concerns you have as well as medicine that you are taking.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
The procedure for the first session should take about 2.5 to 3 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows, select the pigment color for clients approval and begin the procedure.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL
The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and is part of the healing process. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microblading area. The color of your eyebrows will fade up to 40% as it heals. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in.
