MICROBLADING / HIGH DEF. BROW DESIGN™
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery or 3D brows, is a relatively new manual method for enhancing eyebrows. It is considered to be permanent makeup, as compared to the traditional hair stroke technique done by machine. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigment into the epidermis. Because the color is closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no spilling under the skin.
The difference with this and ordinary permanent makeup is that microblading is not done by a machine. The pigment is manually placed into the skin. The microblading manual pen is equipped with sterile packaged blades. The blade glides with gentle pressure by the microblading artist over the skin and causes fine cuts, as fine as a paper cut, leaving a trace that can hardly be distinguished from real hair. Depending on the drawing technique, it creates an individual look perfect for your face and the style you are trying to achieve.
Above all 3D, or HD, eyebrows absolutely do not appear as a tattoo.
Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of the hair you currently have.
People suffering from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
That’s a pretty big investment, how long will it last?
Generally Microblading lasts six to eighteen months, depending on skin type… normal, oily, or dry, as well as the age of the client… young or mature. It is not permanent like a tattoo, because the pigments are not implanted so deeply into the skin. Skincare is also a big factor in the duration of the results. It is very important to follow aftercare instructions. To maintain the brows, touch up appointments may be done every six to eighteen months.
I heard that Microblading hurts, is it true?
The level of discomfort is relatively minor, but of course everyone’s level of tolerance for slight discomfort is relative. Some people have reported the experience to be similar in pain to tweezing two to three hairs at the same time. Usually a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area. Topical anesthetics are safe and may contain lidocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine.
Redness and slight swelling in the area is common after the procedure. The feeling can be compared to the experience of a slight sunburn. Frequently Tylenol is used to address any discomfort.
How long does Microblading services take?
Usually Microblading is done in two sessions. The first takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and pigment is applied.
Six to eight weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up. A touch up can take anywhere from one to two hours.
Why does Microblading require a touch-up?
A touch up is necessary because everyone heals differently and so results will vary. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch up session, the final adjustments are made to assure the client’s satisfaction.
This is why the touch-up is included in the price.
What if I’m unhappy with the Microblading end result?
Selecting your microblading artist is an important decision. Choose wisely. Compare the work of various artists before choosing. Consider training and reviews. Once you have selected an artist, discuss your expectations and desired outcome, including the shape, style, and color you wish. Also, remember that faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Adjustments may be made during touch up, such as pigment discoloration and color correction. And finally, remember that Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if touch ups are not done. Unlike tattoos, they will not last forever.

BROWS SKIN POST
Post treatment care makes 50% of the total treatment success. Carefully adhere to the given advice because if not, you can risk losing up to 80% of the drawn strokes. At the end of your session, we will provide you with an after care kit that has everything you need for the 7-10 day healing process. This may vary per skin type, but 10 days recommended for the best results.
TO DO & AVOID THE FIRST 7-10 DAYS:
- Gently wipe the treated area with an aftercare wipe 2 hours after the procedure, allow
the skin to dry and then apply a thin layer of the after care ointment, repeat every 2
hours the first day
- Days 2 & 3, gently dab the treated area with the wipes prior to applying the provided
ointment, make sure the skin is always dry before applying.
- Apply aftercare ointment 3-5 times a day for normal skin, 1-2 times daily for oily skin
- Avoid getting the treated area wet for 7-10 days
- No sweating or excessive exercise for 7 days
- Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the brow area for 7 days
- No facials, botox, chemical peels or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
- No major sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks
BROWS SKIN HEALING
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE FIRST 6-8 WEEKS:
The first week may be a roller coaster of emotions. Here’s a list of thoughts that will probably cross your mind:
- OMG these are way too dark and way too thick
- What have I done???
- Why are they staring back at me?
- I can’t go out like this.. I look crazy.
The good news is, the Intensified color and slight redness are part of the initial stages of healing and will only be from days 2-5. Don’t worry, don’t freak out.. just be patient. This is the initial shock phase and we ask that you just simply trust the process. After 7 days, the brows will fade about 20% and shrink about 10% to a much more natural look. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal peeling or flaking may take place. Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process.
Healing will vary with skin type, but you may experience color fading and loss of hair strokes. This is completely normal. We like to include a complimentary touch up session where we can assess your healing and fill in any missing strokes as well as give it a color boost. We can then recommend the best follow up timeline for future appointments.
