Microblading is the process of infusing pigment into the skin to simulate the appearance of natural hair. It is considered a tattoo, and permanent makeup. Although it is considered permanent makeup, it fades over time. Touchups are suggested once every 1-2 years in order to keep the color fresh and shape precise.

Microblading is meant to be a subtle natural enhancement, and to create fuller more beautiful brows. It looks most natural on clients who already have semi full brow hair, and are wanting to perfect their shape. The more hair you have, the more natural it will appear.

HEALING

  •  Immediately following your procedure, the tattoo area will appear to be darker and bolder in color, plus more sharply defined. This will happen for 2-4 days after.

  • Swelling and redness is minimal and should resolve within 24-48 hours. It may feel like a sunburn with minimal discomfort.

  • For the 1st week, your brows will be slightly itchy, DO NOT SCRATCH

  • The goal is for the skin in the tattooed area to naturally flake off rather than form into large scabs.

  • DO NOT pick or scratch at the dry skin. Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment.

  • Important: once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear as your skin regenerates. 

MAINTENCE

  • Use SPF on treated area to help maintain tattoo longevity

  • Any laser resurfacing treatments, must stay away from tattooed area. Let your technician know prior.

  • Any radio frequency or microcurrent therapy must stay away from brows.

  • Avoid all products in them that include active ingredients (acne or anti aging products)
