What is Microblading?
Microblading is a manual technique of semi-permanent hair strokes that camouflage missing or sparse eyebrows. The technique imbeds pigments into the skin after the creation of fine incisions into the superficial layers of the dermis. The individual, crisp hair strokes result in a very natural look.
What is Powder/Ombre Brows?
Powder Brow is designed to give your brows a full “powdered look” with out having to apply makeup every day. It is placed by a tattoo machine, and there are multiple different needles that can be used to get this look. It is still considered semi-permanent as we are staying in the epidermis layer and can last up to 18 months. Healing process is the same as microblading.
What to expect
Pain during the treatment varies from one individual to another. Some clients compare the pain to what they feel when eyebrows are tweezed. We offer complimentary topical anesthetic which reduces discomfort during treatment.
The color is dark during the first 5 to 7 days after the initial procedure. A week later, it loses up to 50% of its intensity. If you think the color is too dark, do not try to remove it yourself! Patiently wait 7 days for the color to fade on its own after the healing of the skin.
Color duration primarily depends on how oily the skin is. The oilier the skin, the shorter the color lasts. Sweating and sun exposure also reduce colorfastness.
Post-treatment care is of utmost importance for the treatment’s success. Meticulously follow instructions! Failure to do so may result in loss of pigment. Rinsing and applying creams will be part of aftercare.
Follow-up is done 6-8 wks after the initial procedure, as 15% - 30% of drawn strokes are likely to disappear.
On average, expected time until a Touch-up is needed may be between 12 and 18 months, depending on skin type. Note that with problematic/oily skins, additional Touch ups may be required.
