The Microblading Process
Microblading seems to be everywhere you look these days. But what exactly is it? Simply put, microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that is performed using small hand tools instead of a typical cosmetic tattoo machine. The goal is to give our clients the appearance of more definition and density in the brow area without having to apply daily makeup. What is involved in the process?
First, skin is numbed using a topical anesthetic, then the brow area to be treated is mapped out using several methods of measurement. After color and shape are agreed upon, a sterile, single-use microblade or small row of tiny needles, opens the skin slightly and deposits pigment just under the surface for a hairstroke or shaded (think penciled in) look. We keep you comfortable during the process with mid session numbing if needed. The look is only about 75% finished after the first session and the skin must heal for a minimum of 4 weeks but preferably for 6 weeks before a touch up session builds more density and balances the look. During this healing time, aftercare instructions must be followed strictly and your new brows will look much darker than you are used to for about 7 days. Do not judge your brows by how they look immediately afterwards, or even a couple weeks later. They will continue to change as they heal and settle and the final result takes over 2 months to achieve. All said and done though, your new microbladed look usually lasts for about a year on average before needing a touchup to maintain it's definition.
