Microblading Services

What Is Microblading?

Manual microblading is a manual service performed with a handheld tool with a sterile, disposable “microblade”. A microblade is tiny, fine-point needles positioned tightly in solid rows to visually resemble a “blade”. The microblade lightly enters the top layers of the skin to deposit pigment under your skin in hairlike strokes. The result? Realistic brow hairs that add the most natural effect to perfecting your brow shape and fullness. This service is not suitable for oily skin.

What Is Microshading?

Microshading can achieve the look of fuller, more densely pigmented brows by partially or entirely filling the brow. This manual service is achieved with light-heavy pigmentation through the use of fine point needles. The results will not appear to be individual eyebrow hairs, but rather a shading that more closely resembles penciling or powdering your brows with makeup. This service is suitable for all skin types

Microblading FAQ’s

IS THE 6 WEEK TOUCH UP REQUIRED?

Absolutely! If you are not prepared or unable to get the Touch Up in addition to your initial service, we suggest not to begin the process until you can commit to both. The Touch Up is extremely important to put the finishing touches needed to complete your brows. Your brows will fade 20-40% during your healing process therefore it is vital to adjust the color and fill in any areas necessary.
***Under NO circumstance can a Touch Up or any adjustments be done prior to the 6 weeks after your appointment. The healing process MUST be complete before we can work on your brows again.

IS MICROBLADING A TATTOO?

Yes & No. Microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing. The hand tools create thinner, more precise, hairlike strokes that aren’t as deeply ingrained into the skin unlike body tattoos. Semi-Permanent Makeup artist work in the epidermis (surface) layer of the skin, whereas Body Tattoo artists work deeper into the dermis layer. The pigment also differs from that of a tattoo because (1) it’s only semi-permanent, which means your body eventually ends up metabolizing it, so it fades away, and (2) the dye particles are less concentrated in microblading ink than in the ink of a traditional tattoo.

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

The longevity always varies with each client depending on your skin type, lifestyle, and health. Typically, results last 1-3 years. We recommend a Color Boost every 12-18 months. For example, sun exposure or tanning beds, retinol usage or over exfoliation, & smoking are just a few lifestyle traits that can cause premature fading. Oily skin tends to fade quicker.

HOW LONG DOES THE APPOINTMENT TAKE?

Initial Service: 2-3.5 hours
Touch Up: 1-1.5 hours
Partial Color Boost: 1.5-2.5 hours
Full Color Boost: 2-3 hours

DOES IT HURT?

A topical anesthetic containing 5% lidocaine is applied to the area for 30 minutes to minimize discomfort. During the procedure a secondary numbing agent formulated for open skin is applied to reduce any discomfort. Most clients describe what they feel as pressure or very minimal discomfort.

CAN I GET BOTOX?

Get Microblading done BEFORE you get botox so your muscles will be in a natural state of movement. Alternatively, if you regularly use botox, you will need to wait at 3 weeks after botox before getting your brow service in order to allow the botox effects on your facial muscles to be complete.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?

Approximately 4 weeks. We allow an additional 2 weeks before touch up to reassure the healing process is complete as everyone is different.

It is very important to trust the healing process. Your skin will go through many different stages in the healing process. Days 2-5 they are 30-40% darker and thicker. The following days you will experience dry, itchy skin that you should avoid from scratching or touching. You might experience some light scabbing or flakiness. Some strokes will disappear, and a shiny layer of skin will be left with lighter strokes, then reappear in the following weeks. Be patient and let your brows heal.
