What is microblading?
Microblading is a permanent makeup treatment that creates amazing eyebrows with a handheld microblade. If you have overplucked your eyebrows, or if you want to darken, reshape or define them, microblading is the perfect solution.
How does microblading work?
Microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. But unlike the traditional tattooing process, each individual hairstroke is hand drawn by an artist and is blended in with the client’s existing eyebrow hair. There are many approaches and techniques to microblading, including 1D and 3D eyebrows. 1D eyebrows are hairstrokes that go in one direction, while 3D eyebrows are laid out in a specific pattern across the brow ridges, creating a 3D effect.
What can I expect from the results?
The new pigment on your brows will appear very natural-looking immediately.* The color of the pigment will appear much darker the following day. The entire healing process will take 4-6 weeks, depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle, which we will go over with you during your appointment.
How many appointments will I need to make?
Microblading usually takes 2 appointments to complete. During the first appointment, the eyebrows are drawn on with a waterproof pencil so that you and your provider can agree on the perfect look. Once the look is approved, we will then microblade your brows. There may be some mild scabbing, which should completely heal within 30 days. We will discuss the aftercare steps with you after your first appointment. The second appointment is a touch up session schedule at least 30 days after the first session. This 30-day period allows for enough time for the ink in the epidermis to naturally slough off, and for the ink to settle into your skin. Your artist can also see how your skin has received the ink and will make any necessary corrections.
