Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery or 3D brows, is a manual technique considered to be permanent makeup or cosmetic tattoo. This procedure allows the artist to enhance the appearance of your brows, or to fully create a new shape, by manually placing pigments in the upper layers of the skin in the form of hair like strokes that can hardly be distinguished from real hair, providing an incredibly natural look.
Hair strokes are created by using a very fine sterile stainless blade to deposit pigment into the upper layer of the dermis. The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes fine cuts, as fine as a paper cut, leaving a trace that can hardly be distinguished from real hair.
Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows.
People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows.
Microblading is done in two sessions. The first session takes about three hours. Consultation: 20 – 30 minutes
Brows shape design: 20 – 30 minutes
Microblading Session: 60 – 90 minutes
After care explanation and before and after pictures 20 minutes
A touch up is necessary because everyone heals differently, therefore results might vary. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch up session, the final adjustments are made to ensure the client’s satisfaction.
The level of discomfort is relatively minor. Some people have reported the experience to be similar in pain to tweezing two to three hairs at the same time. Topical anesthetic can be used to numb the area after the first pass. Redness and slight swelling in the area is common after the procedure. The feeling can be compared to the experience of a slight sunburn.
Generally Microblading can lasts between six to eighteen months depending on skin type (normal, oily, or dry), age of the client (young or mature) Skincare routine, life style, etc.
Selecting your microblading artist is an extremely important decision. Please take your time to choose your artist wisely. Compare the work of various artists before choosing, consider licensing, training and reviews. Once you have selected an artist, discuss your expectations and desired outcome, including the shape, style, etc.
Also, remember that faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Adjustments may be made during touch up, such as pigment discoloration and color correction.
