WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is also known as eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering, or brow micro pigmentation. It is a form of permanent makeup, however it is considered semi-permanent. Microblading is done by using a unique hand instrument with a small row if very fine needles that deposit pigment into the epidermis with slicing, feathering strokes. The pigment is implanted in the Stratum basale, which divides the epidermis from the dermis layer of the skin. There is no machine used for this method. Because color is impacted closer to the surface, the hair strokes appear crisp and very fine. If done correctly, there will not be a block like look of the brow like permanent makeup creates, nor will there be any gray, blue and/or green fading.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The treatment last up to 3 years and will fade out over time, however it is recommended you get a touch-up every 12-18 months for color enhancement. Fading is completely normal as your skin regenerates. Healthier and youthful clients will tend to fade quicker because their skin regenerates faster than someone whose skin has slowed down due to aging.
DOES IT HURT?
This is designed to be a gentle procedure with minimal discomfort. The degree of discomfort will depend on several factors, such as if you opt for anesthetics, location of the treatment, and your pain threshold. In the beginning you will feel a scratching feeling while we are marking the shape and design of the brow. A numbing cream is then applied which is absorbed into the skin within a few seconds. Once the cream has absorbed, you will have very little feeling.
IS MICROBLADING FOR ME?
Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results of blading appear natural regardless of the amount of hair present. As we age, our brows seem to fade over time due to excessive waxing, tweezing, etc. Microblading can be the cure. The pigments used are designed to match your original brow color and the hair strokes will blend in resulting in realistic, fuller looking brows.
WHY IS MICROBLADING SO POPULAR?
Who enjoys the daily routine and application of cosmetic makeup? Penciling and drawing on brows everyday gets exhausting. As we age and trends change, the need for fuller and defined brows is even more popular, therefore semi-permanent makeup is an excellent option for women and men.

BEFORE THE TREATMENT:
• Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before.
• Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks on the day of treatment.
• If you tint your brows, do it one day prior to treatment
• Do not tan or sunbathe 3 days before treatment.
• No chemical peels, dermabrasion, mesotherapy or any other intense treatments. This will cause skin cells to rejuvenate faster which will result in skin irritation. We recommend any of these to be done 2-3 weeks before microblading.
After care is very important in order to achieve a beautiful and lasting result.
•Wash brows gently morning and night your first and second day. On day 3, no water on brows for 14 days (or until balm is gone).
•Apply Brow Balm generously 3x a day.
•If brows become dry or itchy, apply more Brow Balm. The goal is no scabbing or flaking.
•Enjoy your showers, but no pools, hot tubs, saunas, lakes etc for 14 days.
•Avoid sweating for 14 days. Sweat can change the pigment color.
•Avoid brow makeup, brow tints, or other facial treatments for 14 days.
•Do not use any other ointments, or creams with vitamins or antibiotics on brows.
•No sunbathing, or tanning for 4 weeks.
•No chemical peels, mesotherapy, dermabrasion, Botox or any other intense treatments for 4 weeks.
•Do not scratch, touch or sleep on your brows for at least 2 weeks.
•Avoid Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline during your healing period. Anything with a petroleum base can cause a reaction, crusting, scabbing and sweating so the skin is not able to breathe.
Sometimes residual pigment, blood, white blood cells, etc., can arise from the open wound, if this occurs you should gently dab this away. Don’t panic if dry patches or scabs appear as this can be taken care of in the second touch-up appointment.
