Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure. The results last 1- 3 years depending of your skin type.
It is done manually with a hand tool and the blade consisting of several tiny needles – which is used to make thin incisions on the skin that creates individual strands of hair.
Microblading affords patients a unique level of precision and detail in regard to both eyebrow shape and colour.
Who is a good candidate for microblading?
Women and men who are interested in achieving beautiful eyebrows without daily maintenance are good candidates for a microblading procedure.
However, in order to achieve safe, quality results, patients with particular medical conditions do not make good candidates for microblading. If any of the following conditions or situations applies to you, please discuss this during your consultation:
You are pregnant or nursing
You are diabetic
You are currently undergoing chemotherapy
You have a heart condition or high blood pressure
You have epilepsy
You suffer from a skin condition such as psoriasis, acne, sunburn, or rash on or near the eyebrows
We encourage our patients to book a consultation prior to scheduling a microblading treatment.
What should I expect during my first microblading treatment?
As each patient is unique with specifics needs, goals, and eyebrows, each microblading treatment session is different. However, patients can expect that a basic microblading procedure will require between 2 and 3 hours.
For patients who are particularly sensitive or concerned about possible pain, the brow artist will cover the brows with a topical anesthetic cream to minimize any sensations during the microblading procedure.
Because microblading is performed by hand and—most importantly—by a licensed and trained brow artist, this treatment option allows patients to achieve natural results without the harsh results many people might expect from other permanent or semi-permanent makeup procedures.
Patients will need a touch-up procedure after their first session.
Will there be any side effects or downtime after my microblading treatment?
Microblading is a noninvasive procedure that allows patients to resume their normal activities and schedule immediately following their procedure. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal.
However, there are some precautionary measures patients can take to ensure the best possible results for their eyebrows. Specifically, patients should apply after care balm a couple times a day and avoid direct exposure to sun, avoid intensive exercise, using a sauna, and swimming for at least one week following the microblading procedure.
