So what is microblading? Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery, Eyebrow Feathering, 'soft tap', or Japanese method, is a form of Semi Permanent Makeup. It is implemented using a handheld tool comprised of between 6-14 micro needles in the shape of a blade, hence the name Microblade. I use a handheld tool opposed to a machine to deposit pigment epidermis. As the color is impacted closer to the surface, the hair strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no "spilling" under the skin and the effects last up to 18 months after which, the pigments fade and leave the skin looking as it did before. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrow is still present, blend perfectly into them. Microblading is a gentler alternative to the permanent make up due to the fact that it does not penetrate into the dermis skin layer. Excited?!? I know I am!
There are a few things to know before coming to your appointment.
1. Please stop all exfoliants unless directed otherwise by myself. This includes products containing vitamin A and Retin A. No Retin A for 2 weeks. This is very important.
2. Do not drink alcohol the day before or the day of the treatment.
3. No aspirin the day of the treatment.
Please let me know if you have any allergies to nickel, pigments, or lidocaine.
Please come with your typical face make up on. I want to see how you usually look when you're getting ready for the day. The total appointment time is about 2 to 3 hours.
A few things about after the appointment:
No make up directly on the brows while healing
Avoid wetting the eyebrow area for 10+ days
No steam, sauna, or sun for 10+ days
No skin care products for two weeks on eyebrows
No excessive sweating for 10+ days
