What is microblading?
Microblading, also known as microstroking, brow feathering, hair stroke brows, 3D or 6D brows, is an advanced brow technique whereby a row of superfine needles is used to create thin, hair-like strokes on the skin. These precisely placed, hair- like tattoo strokes mimic natural hairs creating defined and natural brows.
What is the process of microblading?
Consultation and brow design
Together we will shape and design a set of brows to enhance your natural facial features. Pigment colors are mixed and matched to complement your natural hair color and skin tone.
A topical anesthetic (5% lidocaine ointment) is applied for 30 minutes PRIOR to the procedure to ensure maximum comfort. During the process a SEPARATE numbing agent (5% lidocaine ointment) is used to enhance numbing effects.
Precise hair strokes are placed within the brow design using a super fine, disposable blade. The needles on the blade are three times finer than a normal tattoo needle. Hair strokes will follow the natural flow of the existing eyebrow hair to ensure natural appearance. Pigment is implemented into each hair stroke channel created. Once all strokes are created a final push of pigment is placed on the eyebrow to ensure retention.
Microblading is a two step process
Results will vary from person to person depending on skin type and color retention, see our policy. Individuals will require 2 sessions to perfect their brows. This will ensure that any spots that may have scabbed off, or any imperfections are corrected.
Be PATIENT with the process and it will be worth it!
aftercare for microblading
Immediately after the microblading procedure allow for eyebrows to breath for 1 hour- Do not touch your eyebrows during the healing process.
Day of treatment: Lightly blot eyebrows with a cool damp Kleenex/towel/cloth and apply a rice kernel size of the balming ointment with a q-tip or clean finger to each eyebrow every hour. Maintain a thin layer of hydration.
Day two- blot they eyebrows and apply balm in the morning. Apply balm at least 4 times throughout the day keeping the brows hydrated.
Day three and on: For the remainder of your healing apply balm 2 to 3 times daily but no blotting is necessary. Apply balm when you feel like the brows are drying out.
Tenth-Twelfth Day: At about day 10 to 12, apply a thick layer of balm or coconut oil. Take a hot shower and allow the oil/balm to condition the skin. Remove any excess pigment and dead skin with Q-tip by gently rubbing.
Final Healing Day: At this point, your brows will appear very light in color. The true color will reappear in 4 to 5 weeks. The true color will be 30% to 50% lighter than the initial day color.
