What is microblading?
Microblading by definition is a semi-permanent technique for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows. Pigment is gently etched into the skin in fine short strokes resembling hair using a hand tool with a blade formed of tiny needles. It is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup. Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. A trained technician manually infuses pigment into the skin to simulate the appearance of natural hair. Microblading can dramatically correct or reconstruct ones eyebrows and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows from thinning due to aging or over tweezing.
How long will it last?
Since Microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Depending on skin type, lifestyle, and aftercare, Microblading can last anywhere from 1- 3 years.
Factors that will cause your eyebrow tattoo to fade faster: Sun exposure, Smoking, Iron Deficiency, Exfoliants, Exposure to Salt Water, Anti Aging Skin Care, Anti Acne Skin Care, Chemical Peels, Chlorine, Diabetes, Thyroid condition.
In order to keep your brows looking fresh, a touch up is recommended every 12-18 months. Touch-ups are normal and expected for Permanent Cosmetics.
Will it hurt?
While the process is not completely painless, topical anesthetics are used to help keep you comfortable. Every guest’s pain tolerance is different. I will take every action possible to keep the discomfort minimal. Once completed clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen to deal with any post treatment discomfort.
