No matter what you call them, they are beautiful and I'm so excited to offer this treatment. After months of training, practice, and working with some open-minded training models, I'm ready to offer you a brow service you're going to love. Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup treatment this is perfect for so many clients. Clients with little or no brow hair will be able to have thicker, natural-looking brows. Clients with brows that are loosing length at the ends can have them lengthened. Clients with great brows will be able to loose their brow pencil and forego brow tinting. And, because no one has perfect brows, microblading allows for small imperfections to be addressed, creating symmetry, fullness, and depth of color. Your brows are your most significant facial feature. Small brow changes can make a HUGE difference. Correctly shaped brows can lift the face, widen and brighten the eyes, and emphasize all your beautiful facial features. Are you ready to ditch your brow pencil and love your brows???
Here are some commonly asked microblading questions......
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a hand-applied, semi-permanent, cosmetic eyebrow enhancement where a small amount of high quality, cosmetic grade pigment is deposited into the superficial layers of skin.
How long does it last?
Microblading is semi-permanent. How you care for your brows will affect the life of your enhancement, and you will be given aftercare instructions after your treatment. Microblade enhancements usually last approximately 1-2 years.
Is it painful?
There is minimal discomfort associated with the treatment. However, topical anesthetics are used to numb the area.
What should I do to prepare for my procedure?
Visit the Before Your Permanent Makeup page on my website. Microblading is less invasive than other permanent cosmetics, but please still discontinue use of products that might thin your blood. Otherwise, preparation is quite simple. If you refrain from tweezing or waxing your eyebrows for a week or two before you come in, I'll be able to best assess your natural brow shape (and I'll "clean your brows up" when you come in).
What’s the process like?
At your first treatment, you'll complete consent forms and I'll take before photos and shape your brows. I'll apply a topical anesthetic and while your skin numbs, we'll decide on color. After that, you'll relax while I create your beautiful brows.
How long does it take?
The procedure takes approximately 2 hours. Remember, each set of brows is a work of art - carefully created to enhance your beautiful facial features.
What should I do after the procedure?
You will be given complete aftercare instructions. Really, you'll just need to keep them clean, dry, covered in ointment, and out of the sun.
When may I return to social activities/work?
There’s no downtime associated with this treatment. Redness and swelling usually dissipate within an hour. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
How long does it take to heal?
Healing time varies from individual to individual. Usually, it takes about a week to ten days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off. Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. Then, the pigment takes some time to settle into the skin before the final color can be assessed.
What can’t I do after the procedure?
It is recommended you keep the skin clean and dry - which means no swimming, sweating or otherwise getting the area wet; no tanning or prolonged sun exposure; no picking or peeling the treated area.
How long have you been doing this?
I've been doing Softap (hand applied permanent makeup) for 13 years. Microblading is a newer modality that is very similar to Softap in its application.
Will I love my brows?
I hope so!! Not having to grab your eyebrow pencil every day and waking up with lovely brows will make your daily routine so much easier. If changes need to be made after the initial treatment, eyebrows can be modified to some extent. I strive to ensure we are both happy with shape and color before we even begin.
