What is it?
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic service. The method of placing hair-like strokes into the epidermis using a tool by a microblading artist. This is applied by a feather-like touch with the blade to deliver hair-like strokes that resemble realistic hairs to add shape, fullness, and depth. The end result leaves you with natural looking hair strokes and a flawless finish.
What should I do before I arrive?
- Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 7 days prior to the procedure.
- Avoid exercise, tanning, Vitamin E, Aspirin and Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to the procedure.
- Avoid alcohol on the day of the procedure.
- Discontinue use of Retin-A near the brow areas for 6 weeks prior to scheduling an appointment.
What will happen when I arrive?
We provide you with a relaxing and welcoming environment upon arrival. While relaxing, the professional will outline your new brows to a shape that you desire. Afterwards, the professional will “clean up” your brows by removing a few hairs and applying a topical anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort. A specialized tool and personalized pigment color which matches your natural brow hair color will be chosen to draw the hair-like strokes on your skin. This entire process takes just over an hour from start to finish.
We strive to deliver a comfortable, and relaxing process during your microblading session.
How do I take care of my brows when I leave?
- Avoid water around the brow area during the healing process, which is usually 5-7 days. Apply after care products as recommended by the professional.
- For better color retention, the formation of thin scabs is ideal, therefor keeping the brows dry during the day and using a thick coat of Vaseline to cover them ONLY when showering, washing your face or instances where brows could get wet will aid in forming a thin epithelial crust (scab).
- Do not pick the scab that forms. Allow it to flake off naturally. Picking can result in loss of pigment or color loss.
- In most cases, the initial treatment followed by a retouch appointment is all that is needed until the strokes fade over time.
