What is Microblading?

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup. A handheld tool made of various micro needles in the shape of a blade is used to create hair like strokes.  Final result is achieved in two sessions (the second session is always included in the initial price.) The second session is approximately 6 weeks after the first procedure.

 

What happens at the first session?

During your first session, (plan for approximately 2 hours,) you will start by filling out a consent form and a topical numbing cream will be applied and sit on for 20-30 minutes. Then your brows will be custom designed with a pencil based on shape, bone structure, eye placement, face shape and other factors.  Once the shape and pigment color is a agreed on the procedure will begin.

 

How do I take care of my brows?

Following careful aftercare is most important to give the best possible results and longer lasting brows! An aftercare sheet will be given to each client to take home after their procedure explaining details of aftercare. You should expect not to get them wet or workout for at least 48 hours after the procedure.  It is suggested to buy Aquaphor cream to apply to the brows during the healing process.  No makeup should be applied directly on the brows for 7-10 days.

 

Does it hurt?

Topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment begins to minimize discomfort. The blade is essentially “scraped” across the skin to create the hair strokes.  Each person has a different pain tolerance.

 

What happens at my touch up session?

At the touch up session all of the original strokes will be re-microbladed plus some new strokes will be added to create a layered hair look.  It is completely normal to have some spots that have had poor retention and that will be addressed at this session.  Minor adjustments to brow shape and color can also be addressed.

 

Can everyone be microbladed?

No, if you have any of these preexisting medical conditions, you may not be a candidate. Your safety is top priority.

  1. Pregnant or nursing
  2. Undergoing Chemotherapy
  3. Diabetes I or II
  4. Psoriasis of the head or face

 

How can I prepare for my appointment?

  1. Avoid plucking, tweasing, waxing or threading your brows for about two week prior to the appointment. This will allow for optimum potential of the outcome of the brows. Any hair that falls outside of the final shape will be removed at the time of the appointment.
  2. Do not drink stimulating beverages such as caffeine, alcohol or energy drinks the night before or the day of the appointment,
  3. No tanning or sun exposure for three days prior.
  4. Botox patients should wait two months before receiving microblading and Botox may be continued after the treatment.
  5. Avoid any harsh exfoliant facials (microdermabrasion, microneedling ) or skin rejuvenation treatments for FOUR weeks before procedure.

You can wear makeup to your appointment if desired, all makeup will be removed on and around brows.

 

Is there any “downtime” after treatment?

Freshly bladed brows will be red and slightly irritated immediately following the appointment. They will appear darker before they get lighter. Prepare to see 30-50% darker for the first 3-5 days, then as they heal they will lighten to the desired color.  Most clients continue onto their days per usual.

 

Microblading for a specific event?

It is not advised to get microblading done for a specific event.  This is a two step process and they will not be truly complete until the touch up session 6 weeks after the initial procedure. It is advised to plan ahead!
