Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure done on the eyebrows. This technique creates hair like strokes to reconstruct, define, and fill in parts that no longer grow. To create the natural appearance of the brow, a very fine disposable blade is used to deposit the ink into the skin. By doing this, the strokes will remain crisp and fine for up to a year.
Everyone's skin is different and it is very important that each client understands that. Generally, the results depend on the skin type, texture, oiliness and pore size. This semi-permanent cosmetic procedure should last up to a year.
It is recommended that a touch up is done with in the 12 weeks following your initial session and is complimentary. After, it is recommended to have a yearly touch up to maintain the color and crisp strokes.
We use the same topical numbing cream a doctor would use to do Botox and Filler injections. There may be some discomfort.
Please do not take any ibuprofen or drink excessive alcohol 24 hours prior to and after your appointment. Discontinue all Retin A products close to your eyebrows two weeks prior to and after the procedure.
Please refrain from getting Botox or injectable fillers in the eyebrow area two weeks prior to your appointment.
Leave your eyebrows alone for one week prior to the procedure. This means no waxing, threading, plucking, tinting, laser or electrolysis.
The procedure will take approximately 2 hours. This includes filling out paper work and a consultation. We then numb you, draw your desired eyebrow shape, pick the correct pigment and take before photos. Once numb the procedure can begin!
After the procedure, you will be given after care instructions as well as an after care ointment.
The healing time varies from person to person, however, it usually takes 7-10 days. There are several phases of the healing cycle. The first 2-3 days, your brows will appear darker and slightly larger. You may experience flaking and scabbing in the days after. This all very much depends on your skin. Do not be alarmed if some of the pigment rubs off when applying the ointment. This is just the excess pigment and bodily fluid exiting your skin. your skin will be considered healed after this happens, leaving you with a softer color of fine hair strokes.
About 2-3 weeks after the initial session, you may think your brows are patchy and uneven or may have disappeared all together. This is due to the new skin growth in the treated areas.
By the fourth week, your new eyebrows will have settled. At this point your touch up appointment has been scheduled. We will look at how your skin took the pigment and fill in as necessary.
