What is microblading?
Microblading (Feather stroke brows) is a semipermanent makeup technique done by using a very fine blade to deposit pigment into the skin. The strokes appear crisp and mimic the natural growth of eyebrow hair. The result is a beautiful, fuller looking eyebrow that looks great on every skin tone and haircolor. The results will last anywhere from 10-18 months depending on skin type and lifestyle. A Color Boost is recommended once a year to retain shape and pigment..
What to Expect
It is important to discuss your lifestyle and expectations with your technician prior to having permanent cosmetics.
Immediatly following application
The procedures result in visisble redness, some swelling, and occasional bruising. The application of ice to area can help reduce these symptoms.
Up to one week after application
Most swelling and tenderness will subside. There will be peeling of the skin, and sloughing off of the pigment trapped in the epidermis. As the skin heals, the color will continue to change for the next few weeks.
Two months following application
Healing is complete. You may add or adjust your procedure to suit your lifestyle. The application of sunscreen and good sun sense will help preserve your makeup for years to come.
-Does it hurt?
Although everyone's pain sensitivity varies, the application of permanent makeup involves minor discomfort when topical anesthetics are used during the application.
-Is the procedure safe?
Your safety and discomfort are our highest concern. Permanent cosmetics are applied using the highest sanitation and sterilized standards available. Sterile, single use needs are used with every client. Lastly, your artist is gloved at all times.
-Are the pigments safe?
Pigments used in permanent cosmetics have an extensive record of safety. Used in both medical and artistic fields or over 20 years, their safety is undisputed.
-How long does the procedure take?
Although the length of procedures may vary, as well as number of visits required, most procedures generally take less than 2 hours.
-Can I change it?
Although shape variations and color adjustments can be made, think of your makeup as permanent. If you desire to change your "look" from time to time, the use of topical makeup is more appropriate. Permanent cosmetics are truly from "here to eternity." This is their appeal.
-Is it easy to remove?
No. Although lasers have aided in the removal of brows and eyeliner, lips require a different approach, as lasers tend to darker pigments in those areas rather than remove it.
