What is Microblading?

It is a semi-permanent cosmetic treatment using a small blade dipped into pigment to create the perfect hair strokes that blend in with and enhance your natural eyebrows. Between 6-14 small needles are used for each eyebrow– hence the name microblading.

Because each stroke is done carefully by hand, the artist can create the perfect density, colour and brow shape for each individual client. It is generally a two-step process and after the final touch up, the client will have full and natural-looking brows that will last anywhere between 1-3 years.

Microblading

We make a pattern of lines that mimic one’s own hair growth while implanting pigment into the skin. The result is a natural looking brow. We measure and shape the brows to suit your face’s composition. Numbing cream is applieds.

After Care

The area treated may show redness and swelling. The color may look dark and intense. This is very normal. Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area is completely healed. A 4 to 6 week healing time is required before any touch-ups can be performed.

In order to let your brows heal well avoid water on the brow area, no makeup on the brow area, the gym (avoiding excessive perspiration), the sauna or pool for a minimum of 7 days.

After about one week, when the area looks healed, you may wish to use a waterproof sunblock in the sun to help stop the color from fading. Strong chemicals or glycolic acid/peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten. Always telephone and check with your consultant if in any doubt. Do not pick or pull at the treated area, as it will result in pigment loss. You will go through three healing phases:

  1. Healing
  2. Peeling
  3. Fading

You may also notice whiteness or blanching around the area, this is normal and will subside within 12 hours. If you find a lymphatic fluid or blood weeping you can gently clean the area with saline, cool boiled water, and gauze, blotting gently to dry and remove any moisture.

Wash hands and with a Q-tip, apply a fine layer of aftercare balm or Vaseline to the treated area. Repeat this up to 3-4 times a day, more if the area feels dry or tight.

After the fine scabbing has sloughed away you will see a different hue to the color implanted.

  • MRI Scans – This procedure shows up as an artifact on the scan. Some may experience a tingling sensation. Please notify your radiologist;

  • Injectables – Dermal fillers and Botox can alter the shape of the eyebrows. Injectables should be done after a micro-blading procedure and not prior;

  • Laser/Pulsed Light – Laser or pulsed light hair removal or skin rejuvenation treatments can cause color change – it is important to advise the therapist that you have had the micro-blading procedure;

  • Color Refreshing – To keep your new brows looking at their best it is recommended that you have a color refresh procedure every 12 – 18 months.

Before Care

Prior to your brow enhancement think about the look that you would like to achieve. Technicians can ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you but you are definitely part of the decision-making process. Brow enhancements may require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results, you will be asked to return for a checkup and one controlled procedure four to six weeks after the initial procedure. Be prepared for the color intensity to be significantly sharper and darker following the procedure. This will subside and look softer as the skin heals. This could take up to 14 days.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY

  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, you are advised not to make social plans on the day of your enhancement;

  • Please wear your normal makeup for your enhancement appointment;

  • Do not take aspirin or Ibuprofen 2 days prior to and after your enhancement;

  • Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor;

  • Keep alcohol intake to a minimum 2 days prior to and after your enhancement;

  • A sensitivity test will be performed unless waived upon request;

  • Do not use Retin A skin care products close to the enhancement area 1 month prior to and after your procedure;

  • Do not use AHA skin care products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your procedure.

FAQ

Microblading, also known as Eyebrows Embroidery is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on kin 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 eyebrow 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 will also be taken into consideration.

For the first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 2.5 – 3 hours. During this session the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. Once the client is satisfied with the choices, we begin the procedure.

The client is to come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch-ups. The second Microblading sessions takes places after 4 – 6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1.5 – Hours to complete.

The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microblade area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You will notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.

Depends. A touch up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tends to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year.

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

The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area and also reapplied during the procedure. Everyone respond differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine.

After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients described the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. Clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.

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, oil, 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 fade faster as your skin will resurface faster. Each individuals color 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 micro-bladed area fade over time, but please not a slight shadow may remain.

We can NOT perform Microblading if you:

  • Pregnant or nursing;
  • Are undergoing chemotherapy or undergone chemo in the past 12 months;

What Does a Typical Appointment Look like?

Your first session usually lasts 2 hours. The first thing is to design your brow shape based on your face and bone structure. The pigment choice is then selected. Once your shape and pigment are agreed upon, your eyebrows will then be numbed using a special cream.  The numbing usually takes about 20 minutes to take effect. Then your new eyebrow shape is drawn using a temporary marker. Afterwards, the hand-held blade, also known as a pen, is used to simulate hair strokes in the brow.

There is no swelling, or discolouration so you can walk right out the front door and show off your new eyebrows.

After your initial appointment, a touch up can be done between 4-6 weeks. It is not always necessary, but it is helpful as it insures that the colour is locked into the epidermis and doesn’t migrate or leave the skin completely.

How is Microblading Different than Eyebrow Tattooing?

Eyebrow tattoo is done with a motorized device, whereas microblading is done using a hand-held blade. Microblading artists use pigment instead of ink. Pigment has a thicker consistency while ink has a watery texture.

Most pigments will last in the skin between 1-3 years while tattooing is permanent.

Does Microblading Hurt?

Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. You might feel a slight discomfort but it is almost painless.

Will my Eyebrows Look Fake?

The beauty of microblading is how natural they look. Whether you are one to do make-up or prefer to go without, these brows will frame your face and enhance your features from the moment you get out bed.
