What is Microblading?

Microblading is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 18 months to 2 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over-tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.

How long does it take?

For the Consultation, the appointment will last 30 mins. This involves a thorough consultation of the clients suitability for the treatment. At this stage, the brows are mapped and shaped giving the client an idea of the perfect brow for them. The pigment is patch tested and must be left 48 hours before proceeding to the first session.

For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 1.5-2 hours. During this session, I will shape and style the client’s brows once again for client approval. I then follow with pigment colour selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, I begin the procedure. I never proceed until the client is 100% happy  with the shape.

The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Microblading session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1hr 30 to complete.

Can I get my touch up session sooner than 4 weeks?

Touch up sessions should not be done earlier than 4 weeks after initial microblading session as pigment colour has not fully settled into the skin. Most importantly, this is to prevent scar damage as the tissue requires time to completely heal.

Is it painful?

Prior to the procedure, I will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anaesthetic contains lidocaine.

After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn.

MICROBLADING

How long does it last?

Since microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan, uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid with fade faster as your skin will resurface faster. Each individual's colour retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months. Clients can let the microbladed area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain.

What are the pre and post care procedures?

In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow the pre and post care instructions.

Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and anything that may thin your blood for 72 hours.

  • Avoid excessive tanning so I can assess your natural skin tone.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.

  • Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so I can see your every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows!

Who is not suitable for the procedure?

     Microblading is not suitable for the following candidates:

  • Using Accutane

  • Have heart conditions or using heart medications

  • Have diabetes 

  • Have skin disease or irritations

  • Have had Botox in the last 2 weeks

  • Have gotten a chemical peel in the last 2 weeks

  • Allergic to lidocaine

  • Anyone who has any serious medical conditions may require a physician's note.

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women can not have this treatment done.

* I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who I deem not suitable for this procedure or for any other reason. I make the decision to microblade an individual based on my own discretion. *

Risks and complications?

I take all proper precautions for a safe session by using sterilized equipment, new needles and in a sanitized environment. Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, there should be minimal risks or complications . 

What if I do not like it?

As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly. We always recommend clients do their research and understand the procedure thoroughly. I will do my utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Pigment discoloration and color correction can also be fixed during the the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done. 

AFTER your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions:
  • Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue.

  • After 24 hours make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days.

  • Do not over apply healing balm.

  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 2 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. For up to 10 days when cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.

  • Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 8 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours.

  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation.

  • Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.
