Dress? On. Hair? Done. Makeup? NONE.
Trying to draw the perfect brows, knowing that you’ll need to fix them again later, can be stressful. When you go outside, you don’t need the pressuring feeling that everyone’s watching and judging you. Microblading can boost your confidence and let you rest easy that you won’t have to worry about uneven or sparse eyebrows again.
Getting this beauty transformation can dissolve your insecurities and give you the confidence boost you need to feel good about yourself. Go out, look great, feel great, and when you see other people worrying about their uneven and crooked eyebrows, you’ll remember the struggle you once had (and maybe help solve their problem too - wink - we have an awesome referral program!)
This is the first step; you will describe or show how you usually draw your brows, and/or bring in photos of your desired brow shape. The consultation is to help your artist better understand how you like your eyebrows to look.
2: Preparation- Shape & Color
It’s time to outline the actual look. A color best fit for your style is chosen, and symmetrical and balanced eyebrows are first drawn with a pencil. This is done according to your natural hair lines and how you want to look. Adjustments can be made in this stage.
We strive to provide all our customers with the best possible experience, so you are numbed for the procedure.
Once everything is set up, you are ready for the actual procedure. A new, pre-sterilized needle is used to microblade your eyebrows.
5: Healing Process
In order to achieve the best results, your cooperation is crucial. This step is largely your job; it’s essential to be very careful during this time and to follow proper aftercare protocol to let the eyebrows heal on their own.
Touch-ups, or color boosts, are essential to maintaining your perfected look. Everyone’s eyebrows are unique and fade at different rates, these are done to keep your shape and color fresh.
How Does Microblading Work?
Microblading is a semi-permanent make-up treatment in which a pigment is manually inserted into the upper layers of the skin to mimic natural hair in your eyebrows. The tattoo fills in gaps between your eyebrow hair to give your brows a fuller look and create full and soft brows. The strokes are applied finely to achieve a defined and multidimensional result. Other names for Microblading are 3D eyebrows, eyebrow feathering, eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, and micropigmentation.
Is Microblading For Me?
Microblading is perfect for you if you have:
- Hair loss
- Lack of definition
Additionally, this is a great option if you want to:
- Develop confidence
- Thicken your thin brows
- Lengthen your short brows
- Correct your asymmetrical brows
- Shorten your makeup routine
Where Does Microblading Come From?
Microblading originated in China, and since then has grown substantially in popularity in Europe, Asia, and America. Although not much is known about its earlier history, the existence of similar techniques can be traced back thousands of years. There are myths that microblading was started in Japan, but there is little evidence to support this claim, and there haven’t been many microblading artists there until a few years ago.
What should I Avoid Doing After My Microblading Treatment?
To take care of your eyebrows properly after the procedure, avoid touching, scratching, picking, peeling your eyebrows, as well as sun exposure, makeup, moisturizer, lotion, sunscreen, or exfoliation. Don’t engage in activities that induce sweating, avoid strong winds (ex.driving with the windows down), alcohol, hot baths, showers, saunas, jacuzzis, and swimming.
My Eyebrows are Too Dark!
The first few weeks, your eyebrows will go through the healing period. After this is over, and you’ve followed proper aftercare, your eyebrows will become lighter in color, and swelling, scabs, will disappear / fall off. It’s completely normal for the color to be much darker right after the procedure. During the healing process, the color will fade slightly, revealing softer and more natural brows. If the color is fading too much, you can bring up any problems you have during the touchup session.
Is it Normal for my Eyebrows to be Scabbing?
Yes! Scabbing is part of you skin’s healing process. After a week or so, most, if not all, of the scabs should have fallen off, and you should notice a lighter brow and color. Scabbing happens because the microblading process involves making shallow cuts into your skin. The cuts are not deep enough to result in a permanent tattoo, but it does trigger an immune system response from your body.
Can I Pick my Scabs?
No! Under no circumstances should you pick at your scabs. This can cause the pigment to fall out, and you run the risk of losing all the progress from your first treatment. You must let your scabs fall off naturally. If you have a problem with your scabs, you may gently wash your eyebrows under warm water.
Preserving the Look
Are touchups necessary?
Microblading is a two-step process. The first touch-up, which happens 4-8 weeks after the first procedure, is crucial to retaining your shape and color. Your artist will fix any fading and re-define your eyebrows. Although you can opt for 6 month or 2 year touch-ups, annual touch-ups are highly recommended.
How Long Does it Take Microbladed Brows to Fade?
The speed at which your brows fade depends on many factors. Oily skin, certain medications and medical conditions can cause the pigment to fade at different rates. Everyone’s facial features are unique, and more or less frequent touchups may be necessary to maintain the microbladed look, depending on your features. It may take anywhere from one to three years for your brow color to fade.
