WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is the HOTTEST and most CUTTING EDGE brow trend to cross over to America from Malaysia! Microblading (aka Eyebrow Embroidery, 3D Brows, 6D Brows, Hairstroke brows…) is a Permanent Cosmetic tattoo technique done with a manual pen that penetrates the top layer of skin with pigment. This offers a realistic and dimensional, natural brow consisting of fine hair like strokes instead of a “block of color”.
WHO IS MICROBLADING FOR?
Whether you are missing entire sections of your brow, have no brow or have fairly full brows…Microblading MIGHT BE for YOU! With this amazing technique we can create a full brow where there was none or embellish certain areas that need definition. We can create fullness and depth to an existing brow. NO MORE DRAWING IN BROWS DAILY!
WHO IS NOT A CANDIDATE FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP UP (MICROBLADING)?
*IF YOU HAVE EXISTING FADED PERMANENT MAKEUP ON YOUR BROWS, YOU MAY OR MAY NOT BE A CANDIDATE FOR MICROBLADING. PLEASE SEND A CLEAR PICTURE OF YOUR BROWS IN NATURAL LIGHTING TO 480-313-1355 BEFORE BOOKING.
Permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have:
-Pregnant or nursing
-Viral infections and/or diseases
-A Pacemaker or major heart problems
-Had an Organ transplant
-Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
-Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
-Had Botox in the past 2 weeks
-Used Retinoids (such as Retin-A and Accutane) in the past year
-Prone to Keloids
-Used skin RETINOIDS (Vitamin A), lightening agents or deep exfoliating ingredients (salicylic acid, alphas/beta hydroxy acid or had any exfoliation treatments done in the past 45 days. We WILL have to reschedule if this is the case.
Those clients who have extremely oily skin may experience a different result with microblading than those with normal to dry skin. This could equate to more fading of color faster and possibly the strokes will not heal as crisp (may be slightly blurred or dotted). Those with oily skin may need more frequent touch ups at the 6-9 month mark or should consider a different technique such as a soft “shaded”/powder brow rather than microblading.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The pigment lasts different amounts of time on different people for a myriad of reasons. In general, after the first 6 week touch-up, it could last 12-18 months before fading completely.
DOES IT HURT?
We use topical anesthetic to numb the skin before and during the procedure. Many clients find it relaxing!
IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME?
No. Clients are able to leave the treatment and go directly back to work or to daily tasks/errands. There will be very little redness. The brows are then healing aggressively over the next 10 days while you are using a thin layer of an ointment such as petroleum jelly to keep the brows protected.
BEFORE AND AFTER CARE?
EYEBROW BEFORE CARE
-Do not work out the day of the procedure.
-Do not tan or have sunburned face.
-Do not take Niacin, Vitamin E or IBUprofen hours before procedure. NO ASPIRIN for 7 days before procedure.
-No alcohol or caffeine on the day of the procedure.
-No waxing or tinting 3 days before.
-Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
-NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days (outside of what's recommended by your artist.)
-DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
-Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.
-Avoid heavy sweating for the first 7-10 days.
-NO facials, botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks (nothing that can serve to exfoliate the area).
-Avoid sleeping on your face or digging the side of your face into pillow for the first 10 days.
-Please note: Eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural healing for the first 10 days. This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures.
