Your eyebrows are an important part of your overall first impression. When they are shaped and blended into your overall look they can enhance your eyes and contribute to your emotions. If they are frazzled, uneven, too busy or too thin they can be a noticeable flaw in your face.
Microblading is a great way to sculpt your eyebrows into a look that complements your overall look versus taking away from it.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a ‘semi-permanent tattoo’ that is used to sculpt, form and reshape the eyebrows. This is done using a hand tool that directly places the pigment into the upper part of the skin.
DOES MICROBLADING HURT?
It isn’t a pain-free experience, but past patients have described the pain to be manageable and not nearly as severe as tattooing. By using finer needles, a shallower depth and the use of numbing gel, the pain of microblading can be reduced.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICROBLADING
Healthy adults who want to give their eyebrows a smoother, fuller, cleaner look are the best candidates for microblading. When you schedule a consultation, it’s a good idea to tell a member of our medical team any allergies you may have as well as any previous skincare treatments you have received.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS LIKE?
The process begins by cleaning and numbing the area; your artist will map out your brow’s shape and choose the perfect mixture of pigments. This procedure is very interactive and you will be part of all the decision-making. The initial session is completed in a day, but the length of time depends on how extensive the procedure is.
One of the main advantages of microblading is its quick recovery time. There is little to no downtime following a procedure and results are seen immediately. The pigment will lighten in the immediate days after the procedure as the pigment settles in. The size of the brow will slightly decrease as your skin heals.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Because it’s a semi-permanent tattoo the results vary, microblading can last a lifetime if you continue with annual color boosts. Since the pigment isn’t placed as deeply as a tattoo, yearly color boosts are recommended. It’s mandatory that patients come back to the office 4-8 weeks after the initial appointment to complete the procedure. We call this the “perfecting session” or “step two.” Microblading is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to show off the hidden beauty of your face.
