Microblading is an Art “not” Science. It is a form of Semi-Permanent makeup that is revolutionizing the beauty industry. Also known as 3D brows, eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, feather touch, or hair-strokes. These all mean the same thing. Microblading can help many different clients regain their eyebrows. Unlike a regular “tattoo”, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry performed using a manual handheld tool with attached needles aligned together and used to deposit pigment under the upper layer or superficial layer of your skin to mimic natural hairs in your brows. The technique’s ability to craft realistic and long-lasting brows makes it the ideal procedure for clients looking to buff up their eyebrow game. For some clients, microblading goes one step further and is more than just a beauty procedure, but a step to getting back part of what they have lost.
This varies from person to person because it is considered a “semi-permanent” brow procedure and there are many factors that can affect the longevity of the pigment retained in the skin. Therefore, no guarantee can be made as to how long the results will last. The pigments are designed to gently fade over time. That being said, each client must understand that retention depends greatly on your skin type, texture, oiliness, and long term aftercare.
Each initial procedure takes anywhere from 2-3 hours. During that time, a through consultation is given to better understand client’s desire and what they hope to achieve during their treatment as they fill out all required paper work. This also includes many attempts to draw the perfect eyebrow shape and matching the ideal pigment color. Once we have the final approval from the client then we will start the actual microblading procedure. Keep in mind before and after pictures may be taking with client’s permission.
This varies from person to person as everyone has different pain threshold. However, most people just feel a slight discomfort and topical anesthetics will be used throughout the procedure to minimize the pain. Women who are on their menstrual cycle may also feel more sensitivity and may not want to have this procedure done during that time of the month. If you are ultra-sensitive and have a very low tolerance for pain, then this may not be the treatment for you.
