What is Microblading?Microblading, or eyebrow embroidery, is a semi-permanent method of enhancing the eyebrow by depositing pigment using a hair stroke technique with a hand held disposable, sterile blade. The results are natural hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present.This amazing treatment is ideal for anyone wishing for brow enhancement, or with over plucked/waxed brows,with loss of hair or patchy areas that won’t grow back or in some cases those that need a full brow reconstruction. It is also ideal if you just want to add a slight arch.
How long does it last?Microblading is a semi-permanent treatment that lasts 9-18 months. Results may vary and no guarantee can be made that a specific client will benefit the same as another from this procedure. Microblading is an Art.
How long does the procedure take?We schedule at least 2 hours with each guest to include consulting on brow shape and then drawing in the shape with removable pencil. We then use an analgesic numbing cream to minimize discomfort before and during the service.
Will I need a touch-up? And what is the healing process?Everyone’s skin is different and therefore heals differently and is likely to go through several phases during the healing cycle. Microblading inserts pigment into the basal layer of the epidermis. Yes, it is a form of tattooing, but it is cosmetic and semi-permanent and the pigment will gradually soften. Immediately following the procedure, the pigment will appear very crisp and bold. This is in part due to the pigment still staining the top layer of the skin as it has not ‘settled in’ completely.You may experience some dry ‘flakiness’, tenderness or irritation. This is normal and will dissipate each day so and is important to not scratch or pick at. Sun exposure might cause your brow pigment to fade away more quickly. Once healing is complete, apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 50 to your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Microblading is an art, not a science and while softening of pigment is perfectly normal with healing, it is possible that you will need additional treatment.
This procedure is NOT ideal for you if …You have severely oily skin (results may appear softer or more solid). Have large pores on your forehead. You are pregnant or nursing. Have Thyroid disease (medication may cause pigment not to retain properly). Suffer from Diabetes (prone to slow healing and infection and the pigment may not retain properly).
