- What Is Microblading? Microblading, also known as Eyebrow 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 skin 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 incredible natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural desired brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
The client is to come in for a followup visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second microblading session takes place after 6-8 weeks after the initial session. This session takes approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
How Long Does It Take To Heal? 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 yu will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scab as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrow will lighten up in color as it heals. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You"ll 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 though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
Is The Touch Up Session Necessary? Yes! A touch up session after 6-8 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during your 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 tend to lighten up pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks PERFECT and retains the color for the entire year!
Can I Get My Touch Up Session Sooner Than 4 Weeks? Touch up sessions should not be done earlier than 4 weeks after the initial procedure as pigment color has not fully settled into the skin. Most importantly, this is to prevent scar damage as the tissues requires times to completely heal.
Is It Painful? The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure I will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and also reapply during the entire procedure as needed.
