What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure where thin strokes of pigment are inserted into the dermal layer of the skin to mimic the appearance of eyebrow hair. With the right technique microblading can create fuller, thicker, more even looking brows. It is a two step process- the first appointment is to add the base layer of hair strokes, while the second appointment is to make any adjustments to color or shape depending on the individual retention and healing process of each client.
How Long Does Microblading Last?
Typically, final results last up to 12-18 months before requiring a yearly touch-up. This is a low maintenance procedure, not no maintenance.
Does Microblading Hurt?
We use two types of lidocaine to ensure the most comfort possible during the procedure. We use a topical numbing agent to start and another once the skin is broken. Pain is minimal, if at all.
Is There Down Time After Microblading?
There is no real “downtime” after microblading. Redness and swelling should both subside within 24 hours. However, you will want to avoid moisture, and anything that may cause infection for 3 days after procedure.
Can I Go Swimming After Microblading?
No. We recommend no swimming or going in a sauna for two weeks. You want to avoid bacteria getting in the treated area to prevent infection and ensure the best color retention.
Can I Get Microblading if I am Pregnant, or Breast Feeding?
Unfortunately not, but we’ll happily welcome you after for your “Mommy Makeover”.
Can I get Microblading Over Scars?
Yes, unless the scar you have is a keloid. For normal scaring microblading is a great service for you! If you are in question, please text or e-mail a photo of your scar before you book an appointment.
After your procedure we will apply a barrier ointment that you should leave on for 48 hours following procedure. After 48 hours, depending on your skin type, we recommend apply a small amount of the provided ointment twice a day. You MUST stay out of the sun, sauna and pool. No working out for at least 10 days. Avoid chlorine, exfoliating creams, and sun exposure; all may cause color to fade and hinder the natural healing process.
