About Microblading

​​

  • Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique that creates hair like strokes to make your brows look fuller and more defined.

  • Microblading is a two-step process which requires a second session 4-6 weeks from the initial appointment for most of the clients to obtain desirable results.

  • The healing process normally lasts up to 4 weeks.

  • Depending on your skin type and care, the pigment will fade slowly over 12-18 months.

  • The initial appointment lasts approximately 2 hours and touch-up around 1,5 hour. 

Before Microblading

​​

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:

  • No alcohol 24-48 hours before the procedure.

  • No caffeine 24 hours before procedure.

  • No Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure. (thins the blood).

  • No workouts the day of the procedure.

  • No microblading at least 3 weeks after Botox around the brow area.

Also,

  • Avoid sun exposure and tanning begs one week prior to procedure.

  • No brow waxing, tinting, microdermabrasion or chemical peels one week before.

  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

Aftercare

Follow the directions  to properly take care of your skin after microblading:​

  • Avoid getting the area wet for up to 10 days. Before showering apply a layer of post-care / healing ointment (ex.: Aquaphor,  or similar) to protect your eyebrows from moisture. During the shower keep your face away from the shower head. It  would prevent your eyebrows from getting wet.

  • No eyebrow makeup for at least a week.

  • Avoid picking, peeling, or scratching of the eyebrow brow area. It will cause scarring or removal of the pigment.

  • Avoid saunas, swimming, and excessive sweating until the area is completely healed.

  • Do not rub your eyebrow area even when eyebrows are healed while washing your face.

  • Sun tanning or salon tanning are strongly not recommended.

  • Also avoid laser or chemical treatments or peelings.

​​

What to expect after the procedure?

​​

For the first few days the area treated will look darker and more intense than it will look when the skin completely heals, this is normal.

  • FIRST WEEK: The scabs form in order to heal, they may look even darker/thicker than they were right after the procedure.

  • SECOND AND THIRD WEEK:  You may think the color disappeared (this is due to the new skin forming over the treated area).

  • FOURTH WEEK: Natural exfoliation has happened, scabs healed, new skin formed, and the color starts emerging.
