What is Microblading?

This permanent makeup technique is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows without anyone noticing. These hair-like strokes are created by implanting pigment into the skin using a blade consisting of several needles. The results are very natural, feathered hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, these can be conditions such as alopecia, trigonometrica or any other condition that causes hair loss. Also people who simply aren't happy with their eyebrows due to over plucking or aging. A full treatment consists of an Initial appointment and a 6-week follow up. Results and duration will vary on care, skin types, and other environmental factors. However they are said to last 1-2 years.  Touch ups may be needed to in between to maintain the desired look.

What is the process like?

Often times clients are nervous about the process and whether or not they will have a say in the style or shape they get. Rest assured that we will walk you through the procedure step by step.  Yes, you do have a say and you will see the full shape prior to beginning the procedure. We create partnerships with our clients and while we can offer our expert opinion, we will never push a client into a look they do not want.

 The process begins with some customary paperwork. You will fill out a medical history sheet and a consent form. Once you are ready to begin we will take before pictures and have a brief consultation of what you are looking to get out of the procedure, desired look, color and shape.  We will then clean the area and begin measuring and shaping.  You will have plenty of opportunity to voice you opinion and together we get the desired look drawn on with a dark marking pencil. We are now ready to begin. We will then begin prepping and numbing the area and after a few minutes begin stroking. Typically about half way through you will be allowed to look at the progress and give input. Once we are 90% finished with the brows we will begin detail work and client is encouraged to give feedback.  After the procedure is over we will  take after pictures, apply numbing ointment and go over after care instructions and schedule the 6 week appointment.

Microblading Pre and After Care Instructions

Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours. 

  • Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.

  • May not be on Accutane or other similar prescribed medicines for 1 year prior treatment.

  • May not be on RetinA or other similar prescribed face creams for 6 months prior to treatment.

  • No Botox or fillers around the region for at least 4 weeks prior.

  • Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so our technician can see your every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows! 

     

After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions:

  • Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brow

  • Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days.

  • Do not over apply healing balm. 

  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 14 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.      

  • Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours.    

  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. 

  • Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.     

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after. 

Special Considerations

Basic rule of permanent makeup is:  Pigment + Skin tone + Exfoliation = Final result. The Pigment implanted will heal under layers of skin. There can be no guarantees made regarding how pigment is going to heal under the skin.  Based off of our knowledge about skin tone, and color theory every effort is made to predict how your body will heal with the pigment. That will help us choose the correct color combination as a result.  Every body has unique skin tones and this is not an exact science but an art. Colors may heal slightly Cooler/Warmer than desired and that emphasizes the importance of the follow up as adjustments can be made at that time.

That being said, there are other environmental factors that can affect both color outcome and retention of the strokes.  Certain medical conditions and their associated prescription medications may interfere with the normal healing of these pigments. If you have any questions about which medical conditions are more likely to create less than desirable results please call us and request a phone consultation prior to booking your appointment.
