What is Microblading?

Microblading is a cosmetic tattoo treatment that implants pigment under the surface of the skin with a manual handheld tool. This sterile, single use blade composed of several tiny needles is used to produce the appearance of crisp hairs that result in a natural looking brow.

Microblading is a two-step process. The first appointment consists of consultation and initial application. The second will be to perfect and optimize the brows for longevity.
Results can last anywhere from one to three years on some skin types. A touch up every 6-8 months is recommended to maintain the shape and color of brows.

How do you design my brow shape and determine the correct color?

A consultation discussing what brow shape and color will determine the best, most optimal results according to your bone structure and skin undertones takes place. The brows are measured to achieve symmetry using the golden ratio,  mapped out.  and adjusted for your best brow shape. A customized color is made to match the natural color of your brows. This can take up to an hour.

Is microblading painful? What does it feel like?

Most clients describe the procedure feeling like a “scratching sensation” or a “mild stinging sensation” with “slight discomfort”. A topical anesthetic is available but can compromise the integrity of the pigment. It’s suggested that you try your session without it, but is available if needed to minimize discomfort. You may experience tenderness, redness or mild swelling after your procedure.

What will my brows look like after microblading?

You may experience sensitivity and redness immediately after the procedure in the brow area. Your eyebrows may appear considerably darker at first due to the excess pigment on the surface of the skin.

How long does it take for my brow to heal and what will it look like?

Brow healing includes several stages. The color of your brows may appear darker immediately after your microblading procedure due to excess pigment remaining on the surface of the skin. Expect the brows to significantly fade anywhere between day three-day fourteen. This is a natural part of the healing process. They will return with a softer appearance.  The healed results are seen in 30 days. Your initial session may yield conservative results depending on your skin type, how well you follow the aftercare instructions, and other factors. Your follow up appointment is necessary for optimal results.

How long will my new brows last? How often do I need a follow up appointment?

Microblading lasts anywhere from 1-3 years for some skin types. It is normal for the pigment to fade over time, however this may also be accelerated due to many lifestyle factors. It is recommended that you schedule a follow up appointment every 6-8 months to maintain the color and shape of your brows.

What AFTERCARE do i need to follow after my appointment?

We want you to have the best possible experience with the best possible outcome. To do that, you should follow the preparation and aftercare guides to the letter. The procedure itself  is just a part of the entire experience.

Expect to care for your brows for a full 10 days post microblading procedure.

Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 10 minutes for the entire first day until the fluid stops excreting to prevent hardening of lymph fluid.

Wash twice daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT FROM THE BROWS)
Very gently, wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap or Cetaphil. Using a very light touch, use your clean fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the eyebrow area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds then rinse with water to ensure that all soap is rinsed away. Gently blot with a clean tissue to dry. DO NOT use any cleansers that contain AHA, glocolic or lactic acids.

After washing and once the treated area is completely dry, apply a rice grain size of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the eyebrow. Do not to over-apply, this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important Reminders to ensure an easy healing process:

Use a fresh pillowcase

Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days

Limit your showers to 5 minutes to avoid creating too much steam, keeping your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last part of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated brow area.

No applying moisturizer, facial cleanser, or makeup in the brow area for 10 days after your procedure. Avoid cosmetic powders because it will cause premature fading of the pigment.

Avoid scratching, picking, rubbing the brow area. Allow skin to naturally exfoliate, do not touch any flaking or scabbing! This can result in loss of pigment, scarring, and possible infection.

No sun exposure, tanning beds, or swimming for 3-4 weeks after procedure.

No working out or sweating for the first 10 days post microblading procedure.

NO Botox, chemical treatments, facials microderm-abrasion for a month after your procedure.

Avoid household cleaning of dusty areas, convertibles, or sleeping on your face for the first 10 days after your procedure.
