WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent.

Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine.  The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra-fine needles and each ‘hair’ is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over-tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.

MICROBLADING VS. EYEBROW TATTOOING

You may be thinking that eyebrow tattooing is the same as microblading, which is not 100% true. Microblading features very fine lines that usually stay on for 1 to 3 years, but need to be filled in over time. Microblading uses a different type of ink than tattoos that maintains its original color over time and also tends to get lighter.

This method is a lot less painful than getting a tattoo, in fact, there is little to no pain for many clients. Microblading artists use a topical anesthetic that numbs the clients for most of the pain. When the artist starts coloring in your eyebrows, each hair stroke is drawn with very fine lines and do not “bleed out” over time, like tattoos.

MICROBLADING VS. BROW TINTING

Eyebrow tinting can only tint the existing hair but fades very quickly and is also a monthly appointment, whereas, microblading creates and alters the brow shape. Microblading are two initial appointments that require a touch up every 12/18 months – saving time and money in the long run!

HOW LONG DOES HEALING TAKE?

The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark, which is normal and apart of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals.

No downtime is required after the microblading procedure and takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You’ll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.

IS A TOUCH UP SESSION NECESSARY?

Yes! A touch-up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and the outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during the first session and will need to be refilled.  Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch-up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!
