What Is Microblading?

MICROBLADING uses a manual hand tool which is dipped in pigment and dragged through the skin, creating small cuts that simulate the look of hair strokes. It requires the technician to apply pressure with a blade(made up of a row of needles, pictured above – hence the term microblade) to open the skin which means there is a significant amount of trauma to the skin when this technique is preformed. The ideal candidate for microblading is one who has young dry skin and a significant amount of natural brow hair. This technique can have beautiful results, but it requires a very specific skin type to yield ideal results.

MACHINE WORK is done using a digital machine that implants pigment through a needle moving hundreds of times per minute, stitching the pigment into the skin. The needle cartridge is loaded with pigment and the color is deposited as the needle stipples in and out of the skin, causing a minimal amount of trauma. Machine work is ideal for all clients with all types of skin, and it heals beautifully on everyone!

What To Expect

We first recommend a brief consultation to determine if you are good candidate for microblading and also to discuss your desired result. Then your initial microblading service may be scheduled. The process will take between 2 to 3 hours.

At your appointment, we will first apply a topical numbing cream to your eyebrow area for about 30 minutes. During this time, color will be selected together by the client and technician. After the skin has been numbed, your technician will do a “pre-drawing” to map out the shape for the brow. The client and technician will together agree upon the shape and fullness. Then the microblading process will begin.

A “touch up” service is required 6 weeks later for best results, and this appointment is included in the price of the microblading. The touch up will take about 90 minutes.

Does it Hurt?

This varies from person to person, depending on sensitivity of the client. Some clients may feel slight discomfort but most find the process tolerable, comparing the feeling to a paper cut or a rough scratch. After the first pass, an anesthetic gel will be applied to the skin which will allow for more comfort moving forward with the service.

 

What happens after the procedure?

  • Skin may be sensitive, red and/or slightly swollen.
  • You may experience some scabbing — DO NOT PICK THE SCABS as this can cause you to lose pigment.
  • Closely follow the after care instructions provided by your technician, as this will determine the success of the overall result
  • Initially the color may appear too dark, but the color will fade 30-50% over 4-6 weeks.
  • A “touch up” appointment is highly advised, and built into the service price, and may be performed 6 weeks after the initial service. This will also help determine the overall result.

Not ideal for:

  • Individuals with oily skin and large pores – pigment has a harder time retaining
  • Individuals with previous permanent makeup
  • Individuals who have used retinoids within the last 2 weeks
  • Individuals who have had deep chemical or laser peels within the last 6 weeks
  • Individuals who have had Botox within the last 2 weeks
  • Individuals on blood thinners – excess bleeding can cause the pigment to not retain (may receive a note from doctor to stop blood thinners for a period of time prior to service)
