What is Microblading?
Micro-blading is a method of semi-permanent make-up.
Microblading goes by a few different names: microstroking, micropigmentation, eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering and 3D eyebrows.
Micro-blading is done by manually inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin to give the impression of fullness and shape to the eyebrows.
It is done via a manual microblade tool so strokes are sharp and crisp. The results of this method looks natural and just like hair strokes.
The technique is gaining momentum and increasingly popular in the U.S. It has been widely practiced and very popular in Asia for over 25 years.
A technician will take measurements on your brow bone to make out the perfect shape for your brows.
The process usually takes between one a half to two hours and at least one touch up will be needed to get your final result.
The healing process is relatively quick – but final results may not be visible until several weeks after your appointment because of how the skin heals.
Although microbladed brows won’t require daily maintenance, because the results are semi-permanent, they typically last somewhere between one to three years depending on skin type and lifestyle.
We recommend a touch up 12-18 months later to keep the color looking vibrant, and the microblade strokes looking crisp.
For best possible procedure & results we recommend the following:
NO alcohol, aspirin or retinoids (at least several days to 1 week prior)
NO swimming, vigorous exercise, sauna or hot tub for at least 1 week
Keep newly microbladed eyebrows dry and clean, moistened with Aquaphor or Bacitracin. Avoid using Neosporin or Petroleum Jelly.
Avoid direct pressured water on brows (from shower). Avoid getting wet for as long as possible.
Gently wipe down any secretions during first day with wet towel. Scabs may or may not form over next three days. Do not touch, let any flaking or peeling resolve on its own.
Full results will show in 3-4 weeks after all healing and possible peeling is complete and pigment has fully settled. It may take additional time for the pigment to fade to the desired shade.
