Microblading is a relatively new, manual method of filling in the eyebrow, and is considered to be semi-permanent (still a form of cosmetic tattoo). It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no “spilling” under the skin.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of actual hair present.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Twenty-four hours after initial appointment, the brows appear darker but will fade significantly over a two week period.
It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
Microblading will not give a “shaded in” appearance like when we fill out eyebrows in with product, it will have fine hair strokes that will make it easier to fill them in if you’d like or to always have a beautiful, natural look.
If you have any of the following you are not a candidate for Microblading:
Before your treatment:
Leave your eyebrows alone. Do not do anything to your eyebrows other than pat them dry if needed. You may do this with cold damp cloth. Up to other 3 hours after the procedure, your treated area will produce yellowish or clear water. This is lymphatic liquid (plasma), which is totally normal as your skin works to protect itself. Sometimes this plasma mixes with blood. The combination of that with ink that is now exposed to the air creates a scab. More of this fluid will merge together, mixed with dust that is in the air, and create more usually dehydrated crusty layer.
Clean the areas once a day with cold water and cleanser. Apply oil 2-3 times a day.
DO NOT pick or scratch at the dry skin/flakiness. Let the skin fall off naturally. Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment.
Protect the treated area. Chemicals, as well as hot water, sun or sweat of any kind may interfere with the healing and color of your service.
THE FIRST 2 WEEKS:
- No makeup
- No hot water
- No lotion or anti-aging creams
- No sun beds
- No sweating in the gym
Avoid direct shower water on the treated area after the procedure. Apply the product given to you prior to showering to prevent soaps and shampoos from getting on the treated area, then gently wipe it off. Avoid scrubbing the treated area for at least 1 month.
WITHIN 4-6 WEEKS:
You should be fully healed over within 4-6 weeks post treatment. This obviously depends on the individual. You will be ‘photo ready’ for the world within a day or so after the irritation has subsided.The effect will be immediate once the first treatment is completed and you will see the full effect after the second treatment has healed fully.
Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made can be done at your follow-up appointment.
Clients should contact the body art operator or a qualified health care professional at the first sign of abnormal inflammation, swelling or possible infection.
