Microblading

Microblading, also known as 3D eyebrows, or eyebrow embroidery, is a method of tattooing semi permanent hair strokes that mimic the natural hair pattern. The Microblading method is done by using a hand tool, with a blade of needles attached to it. In addition there is also a combo brow which includes microblading with either an Ombre brow or a powder brow. These different techniques can give you a range of options and looks going from natural and subtle, to dramatic.

What happens during my appointment?

  • First we talk about how you want your brows to look. I always aim to make brows look as natural possible, like real hair strokes, instead of looking like art work. This is achieved by using color variations and different sized microblades to add finer and thicker strokes. 

  • I will wash any make-up off of your brow area and use an alcohol wipe on the area which will sit for 60 seconds (this is required by law). At this time I will take before pictures of your brows. Pictures are required, however if you prefer not to have them shared on social medial, I will respect your wish to keep your pictures private.

  • Next comes the mapping. During the making portion of the appointment I will take several measurements of the features on your face which will give me an outline of the perfect shaped brows that will complement each individual person. Every mark is measured on both sides of the face to ensure that each brow is symmetrical. After this is completed I will have you sit up to make sure that both brows match with gravity. If everything looks good then I will have you look at the shape and we will agree on the shape or talk about if any changes need to be made.

  • After we agree on the shape then we will talk about color options. I will mix two or three colors and I will fade a little of the color on your forehead or cheek to show as close to the healed result as possible. The healed color will be three times lighter then the color used, so this needs to be taken into consideration.

  • The important part! Next I will pre-numb your brows by using a topical numbing cream. During this time you will sign your release form, and have the opportunity to sit up, walk around before I start the actual microblading process. This step takes about 20 minutes.

  • Last but most importantly...time for the microblading! I will do two to three microblading passes in which during each pass I will uses a different sized blade to replicate different hair strokes. At the end of each pass I will do a "pigment wash" where I will rub the pigment into the michroblade strokes to ensure good adhesion of the pigment. The pigment wash will sit for a couple of minutes and then be wiped clean. After, a topical numbing gel will be applied which will completely numb the area. This process will be repeated 2 to 3 times.

  • After the microblading is finished I will have you sit up and look at your new brows! That's right! YOUR NEW BROWS!

  • I will then apply a special ointment to your new brows and and explain the aftercare procedure. You will also be sent home with an aftercare sheet and aftercare products at no additional cost.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How long does microblading last?

Microblading eyebrows is only implanted in the shallow layer of skin also known as the basal layer of the epidermis (the exfoliation layer) so how long it may last can change from person to person being as skin varies for each individual. As for my typical results, after the fill, I recommend to see clients every six months to a year for a touch up, but some can go longer without loosing the outline of the microblading.

The fact that microblading fades is one of the best things about the process because unlike a traditional "permanent brow tattoo," as the skin ages and changes microblading permits you to move the brow back to the proper placement instead of ending up with a brow that is underneath the brow bone.

How do you sanitize your implements?

I use all disposable products, to ensure the cleanest most sterile environment to protect the health of my clients.

Does microblading hurt?

The procedure is a little uncomfortable, most people compare the feeling to being tweezed or threaded, I Pre-Numb all of my clients and then an additional numbing gel is used throughout the procedure to make the treatment as painless as possible.

How do I prepare for my appointment?

The day before you come to your appointment make sure you don't drink alcohol, take fish oils or take any anti-inflammatories.

Do you use ink or pigment from countries other then the US?

All of the products I use to perform the procedure including the pigment and microblades are all made manufactured here in the United States.
