Microblading

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow technique wherein a hand tool is used to implant pigment under your skin to provide you long lasting, natural looking appearance of makeup. 


Microblading Benefits:

  1. Long Lasting Results
    This non-invasive process offers fantastic results. In layman terms, consider it like a permanent tattoo that gives you perfect brow look. You only need to get your eyebrows micro-bladed once every 2–3 years.
    Themicrobladed eyebrows retain their shape and size for years to come except for the need of a few touch ups. Therefore, you don’t have to rush to the salon every time you are invited to a party.

  2. Hassle-free and Needs No Maintenance
    Withmicroblading, you need
    not bother about arching the eyebrow in an ideal shape, plucking or getting waxed too. This is one of the most beautiful ways to have flawless eyebrows.

  3.  Easy Solution to Regain Eyebrows
    The Microblading process is perfect for people who have lost their eyebrows due to an illness or chemotherapy. These people can easily regain natural looking eyebrows in a couple of hours.

  4.  Painless, Safe and Effective
    You can get the right shape for your eyebrows in a virtually painless manner. Microblading produces natural-looking semi-permanent eyebrows and is completely safe too. The process does not have any side effects and is effective as well.

  5.  Natural Looking Results
    It is nearly impossible to spot a difference between a natural eyebrow and a micro-bladed one. The best Microblading makeup clinics in the industry know how to use this technique to th
    eir advantage and give customers the desired look for eyebrow.

  6. Waterproof Results
    A commonly asso
    ciated problem with artificially drawn eyebrows is that they often get smudged and distorted under the effect of sweat or water. However, you face no such problem with a micro-bladed eyebrow.

  7. Quick Process
    The best part of the process is that you don’t need to hide inside the house due to swollen skin, bandages, cuts etc. With Microblading, you get immediate results. You’ll be impressed with the impact of these eyebrows. This cosmetic procedure does not demand any time for recovery. You can have an appointment for the process in the morning and can move to your office right after it gets over.

Microblading Eyebrows After-Care:

THE BEST WAY IS TO NOT DO MUCH!

Please read all aftercare instructions on this page to make sure you can commit to this brow journey, especially the first 10 days. How you take care of your fresh brows greatly affects the healed outcome.

 

FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE RULES FOR THE BEST RESULTS:

NO MOISTURE! NO WATER! NO SWEAT! NO SUN! For 10 days.

The best results come from the "Do Nothing" or "Dry Healing" method. The absolute best results come from keeping your brows extremely DRY for the next 10 days! Keeping them dry makes them retain more detail, better color, and more crisp strokes, so it's worth it :) It sounds tricky- but can be done if you're mindful of it. Here's how...

  • Within 2-3 hours after the procedure wash the ointment off your brows with sterile water and gauze pad included in your kit. And that’s it for the next 10 days!

  • Keep your face directly out of the shower stream & do your best to carefully wash hair and keep face as dry as possible. Keep clean, dry paper towels on hand to pat dry if they accidentally get moist. Also keep showers brief, as too much steam can harm brows as well.

  • When washing your face, be sure not to splash water onto your face like we normally do. Instead use a washcloth or disposable cleansing wipe to wash AROUND the brows, making sure they stay dry :)

  • Use product free blotting paper 3 times a day for normal skin, and 6 times a day for oily skin directly on top of the brows and then the surrounding area for the first 10 days as well. 

  • Do not apply any cosmetics on your brows for AT LEAST 10 days.  If your skin starts to feel tight and dry around day 7 post treatment, you can use a small amount of * Coconut Oil * (or a fragrance-free moisturizer, such as Cetaphil) IF NEEDED to gently moisturize the area once a day. If you do need to moisturize, please do so sparingly.

  • No heavy exercising or sweating for at least 10 days post procedure. If you want the best color and detail retention, this is crucial.

  • After 10 days you may wash your face normally, including your brows! with a gentle face wash, such as Cetaphil.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color, more sharply defined or even have a more filled in appearance. This can last up to a week after the treatment while the initial healing process takes place. The treated area may feel a bit like sunburn afterwards but there should be minimal discomfort and minimal redness.

  • During the initial healing period, there may be scabbing, flaking or peeling of the skin. If that happens, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own. This is very important! If scabs come off prematurely, the pigment will come out with it!

  • The complete healing process takes about 4-6 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating.
     

 

MICROBLADED BROWS GO THROUGH MANY PHASES WHILE HEALING! CHECK IT OUT SO YOU KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.... 

  • Day 1 - finely detailed, slight redness

  • Day 2-4 - They become darker and more filled in looking as they form a light protective layer or scab. This is only temporary- don't panic!

  • Day 5-12- the protective layer naturally exfoliates, peels and flakes away over the course of several days as your skin heals underneath it. The freshly healed skin is white and has a waxy coating, making it appear that the brows are too light. Be patient!

  • Day 10-30 - After 10 days you may use brow makeup very gently if you need it. The color will slowly come back to life and bloom back to the surface as that new, white skin settles in and heals. Wait at least 4 weeks to see the true color, as it will take on new strength, and it is only after 4 weeks that your touch-up/adjustment can be done. Your second appointment is to tighten up your shape, touch up any light spots and also to assess how your skin reacts to the process, and the chosen color. We note everyones pigment blend, in case we need to layer in a different shade or adjust the method for the best results :)

  • This is a two step process. Brows look really finished after the 2nd appointment.

 

WHAT NOT TO DO

  • You may shower or bathe normally, but avoid getting any harsh soaps, shampoos, water on them as this can be detrimental to the bonding process that must take place for the pigment to stabilize in the dermis.

  • DO NOT pick or scratch at the dry skin/flakiness; let the skin fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment. IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared. This is just new skin forming. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.

  • DO NOT apply make-up to the tattooed area for the first 10 days. Cosmetics of any kind may interfere with the healing and color of your tattoo. After 10 days its fine if you need to gently apply makeup to any light spots.

  • DO NOT use Vaseline, Neosporin or other petroleum based products while healing.

  • DO NOT bleach, tint or dye the tattooed area for one month following the procedure.

  • DO NOT apply any anti-acne products (e.g. Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Proactiv, etc.) or lightening creams (skin bleaching creams) such as hydroquinone to the treated area while healing.

  • No anti-aging products or facial products containing Alpha Hydroxyls (AHAs), Retin-A, Lactic or Glycolic Acids

  • Do not thread, wax, or use hair removal products on the treated area while healing.

  • NO exercising and/or excessive sweating one day prior to getting tattooed and for 10 days after. Heavy sweating will cause the hair strokes to blur and detail to be lost.

  • NO Sun exposure, swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas or other bodies of water for two weeks.

  • Do not soak your face underwater in a bathtub or allow the shower to spray directly in your face for two weeks.

 

ONCE HEALED

  • Exposure to the sun over time can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment. Once completely healed, I recommend applying sunscreen daily on the treated area. Wear large sunglasses and a hat for further protection. Rinse and dry the area thoroughly when in contact with chlorine.

  • Glycolic acid, retinols, AHA's, anti-aging lotions and serums, microdermabrasion, chemical face peels and laser treatments must be kept away from the tattooed area as continued use could lighten or discolor the pigment.

  • If you are having laser resurfacing or laser hair removal after your tattoo has healed, please inform the laser technician. Continue at your own discretion. Laser procedures may darken, lighten, or discolor the tattooed area.

  • Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made can be done at your follow-up appointment no sooner than 6-8 weeks later. It takes about 4 weeks for the brow area’s skin cells to completely regenerate and settle in.

  • There are no implied or written guarantees if you do not take care of your tattoo, and everyone will heal a little differently.

 

THIS PROCEDURE IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU IF

  • are epileptic

  • are highly prone to scarring or keloids

  • are allergic to Lidocaine

  • are pregnant or nursing

  • if your skin is very delicate, fragile, sensitive or problematic. The older we get the more fragile and thin our skin gets. People aged over 70 may not have the most ideal results, and may experience loss of detail, discoloration, or additional blurring

  • if you are very tan or sun-damaged

  • if you want very thin brows (there needs to be at least a slight thickness in order to achieve desired hairlike detail)

  • if you have very oily skin and/or very large pores on your forehead the hair stroke pigment may be rejected or it may heal very powdery and fuzzy with loss of detail and may need frequent touch ups. Often powder shading, or a combination brow is a good replacement !

  • you are using ACCUTANE or have used it within the past year
