Microblading is a semi-permanent form of brow tattooing that mimics the look of real hair to create full and natural looking eyebrows.
How does Microblading work?
Microblading is a procedure where the technician uses tiny needles that make up a smalldisposable blade to scratch and put in pigment directly underneath your skin. It creates hair-like strokes to match the natural shape of your brow making your brows appear fuller even without the use of makeup. The technician first creates a design for your eyebrows, then starts the process.
How does Microblading differ from traditional makeup tattoos?
Microblading is semi-permanent. Unlike traditional tattoo, microblading does not penetrate deep underneath your skin, the pigment used is also less concentrated so your body ends up metabolizing it and it fades away. This is good because eyebrow shapes and styles always change so you are not stuck with an outdated brow shape.
How many treatments will I need?
Although some skin types achieve completion after 1 session, most skin types require about 2-3 procedures to achieve desired results.
How long does Microblading last?
Microblading can last about 6-18 months depending on how your skin reacts to the procedure. The results of microblading and how long it lasts has many variables such as aftercare, skin type and lifestyle.
What will happen after treatment?
Right after the procedure and over the next couple of days the treatment may appearbolder/darker than usual. This is normal and not the way it will remain. After 1-2 weeks you may notice flaking/shedding of skin. After this the treatment area may appear about 50% lighter than it was immediately after the procedure. This is normal as well. Following the technician’s aftercare instructions are crucial in obtaining the desired results to this procedure.
Is it painful?
There may be slight discomfort during the procedure, but the technician uses numbing cream to numb the area before treatment. Because microblading is done manually, it does not hurt as much as traditional tattoos and cosmetic tattoos.
