Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that uses a fine blade to place semi-permanent pigment into the surface of the skin. The effect very closely mimics the look and detail of actual brow hairs, creating a bolder, natural-looking brow. This procedure does not require a tattoo gun and is quite different from a traditional tattoo in terms of procedure, permanency, color, detail, and overall look.
Microblading is simply the best way to create natural-looking brows. It can also be referred to as eyebrow embroidery or feathering.
Microshading and ombré shading is also a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure where it uses a needle that places semi-permanent pigment in the upper layer of skin in a stippling technique. The overall look of the eyebrows once it has healed is more of a filled-in make-up look compared to the hair-like look of microblading. Some clients prefer this type of look or if someone has an oily skin complexion, this procedure might be more ideal for better healed results.
Your brows will last between 1-2 years. We recommend that our clients come in for an annual touch-up to keep the brow color looking fresh and to ensure the strokes are defined.
The initial procedure takes approximately 2 – 3 hours. The appointment includes consultation, brow shaping, customized color matching and microblading/microshading. The first half of the appointment is the consultative component of the procedure and the second half is the microblading itself.
A topical anesthetic is used to numb the brow area prior to the procedure and during. You can expect some minor level of discomfort during the procedure similar to threading or tweezing.
Within a few days, the lines that we’ve placed throughout your brows will begin to scab. This is completely natural but it could look a little patchy at first. To relieve the brows of itchiness or dryness, you may use coconut oil or grape seed oil.
PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT USE ANYTHING THAT CONTAINS PETROLEUM JELLY
Once the scab falls off naturally, the lines will begin to appear darker and your brows will take a fuller, more natural look within a few weeks.
Everyone’s skin is different and therefore may heal differently from this procedure. Depending on your skin type and how well your body heals from small scabs, some areas might retain pigment better than others.
We will do our best to ensure pigment is placed well within the skin to achieve exceptional results. A small percentage of clients might need two touch-ups instead of one. Please be patient and know that we are committed to getting you the results you want.
