Microblading is a manual method that uses a metal hand tool with fine needles to create fine hair-like strokes. A hypo allergenic pigment is implanted into the skin and will generally last 1 to 2 years. Results will vary depending upon the client’s resistance to pigment, exposure to sun and overall skin care. Microblading is often referred to as Eyebrow Embroidery and 3D Feather Hair Stroking.
Microblading is the best alternative to makeup or even other permanent makeup procedures because it looks very natural and it is semi-permanent. The results are amazing and clients achieve natural beautifully designed eyebrows. Truly the most natural way to achieve eyebrow hair strokes, Microblading can add definition, dimension, shape and symmetry.
Microblading is an art, not a science. Clients results will vary and according to the healing process. Each time a procedure is done, the pigment will have less retention due to scar tissue. Remember, no two sides of the face are the same. Perfection is the goal but brows are sisters, not twins.
- Do not exercise the day of the procedure.
- Do not tan or have a sunburned face.
- Do not wax or tint eyebrows 3 days prior to procedure.
After Care during the 10 DAY healing period:
Please follow all instructions carefully. Remember all procedures must heal, peel and fade. This process may take up to 10 days.
- Do not pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
- Not excessive water, cleansers, creams makeup or other products.
- Avoid swimming, hot sauna, Jacuzzi or heavy sweating.
- Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 30 DAYS before and after the procedure.
Everyone’s skin heals differently and most clients develop patch areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment. It is important to understand that this is a TWO PART PROCESS and the second touch up treatment will complete the procedure, after the healing you will see the final result.
You will need to return for the touch up treatment NO LATER than 4 to 6 weeks after the first treatment.
The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of the skin and has not settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually.
Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on a cotton swab as this is excess pigment that is naturally exiting the skin. Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly. However, this is just superficial color and dry sking being removed form your eyebrows.
The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red or irritated. This is 100% normal. DO NOT PICK. These symptoms will dissipate every day and vary on individual basis. Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 40% to 60%. At the touch up we will fine tune any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 2 years to maintain its fresh, natural appearance.
Once completely healed always apply sunscreen SPF30 and up on your eyebrows when expose to the sun. Sun exposure might cause e the color pigment to fade more quickly. Hair strokes WILL appear crisp, dark and bold at first. This will soften up in appearance as the tissue heals. The area will shed taking some color with it. This is normal. The area will begin to oxidize and darken over the first month. It is important to start with a slightly darker color as it will fade after it heals.
