Microblading is a type of semi-permanent cosmetic "tattoo" that is meant to look like real brow hair. Each individual hair stroke is created one by one with a manual hand tool made of tiny needles formed into a super thin blade. Pigment will be absorbed into the shallow cut strokes created. It will then heal into the skin, and once fully healed, will reveal a perfectly natural looking brow hair. It generally lasts 1-2 years. It's a technique that's a solution to sparse, over-tweezed or over-waxed and thinning eyebrows. It is ideal to cover scars, gaps, define shape or symmetry, create an arch or add density to existing brows. It offers a natural looking result for people. We, together, choose a pigment color that enhances your eyes and haircolor. You're kept very comfortable with 2 strong topical anesthetics, for most people it doesn't hurt at all.
Each appointment typically lasts about 2 hours. We begin by determining what you want from your brows and evaluate your skin. Then your brows are cleansed and disinfected and a new brow shape is mapped out and designed with a pencil based on what you want and what would work best for your face. Once the shape is in place and approved by you, we determine a color formula specific to you. Once color and shape are decided then we start the procedure. For a pain-free experience, a numbing solution is applied beforehand and throughout the procedure.
Not all skin types are a good candidate for Microblading. If you have oily skin and/or larger pores then you may be required to have more frequent touch-ups. People on certain types of medications may experience less than perfect retention. These clients may want to consider getting Ombre brows instead or a combination of microblading and shading.
When healed in about 4-8 weeks you can come in for a touch up. The healing process varies per person depending on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.
Color will appear bolder right after the procedure. But guaranteed, you will walk out LOVING your new brows.
After your brows have completed their healing, the color typically fades/softens up to 30%.
Blanching (whiteness) and redness is to be expected immediately after but is very minimal. There isn't any swelling but the brows might be tender the first night.
If you’re out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, peels, Retin-A or exercise regularly your brows will fade faster. The better you care for the treated area, the longer it will last. A color boost every year is recommended to keep the brows looking fresh.
Eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature. If you're not satisfied with the ones you have, there are now ways to update them with more longterm results!
