What is Microblading? 

WATCH VIDEO

Microblading is the process of implanting pigment into the superficial upper dermal layer of the skin using sterile blades made up of rows of needles with a meticulous technique performed by a trained, knowledgeable and licensed technician.

 

The technician will draw hyper-realistic patterns of hair on the brow using high quality pigments that match the clients’ natural brow color.

 

This process is done on two appointments, the initial one and the touch up. The touch up is done 4 to 6 weeks after the primary appointment.

Microblading can last anywhere from 1 year to 3 years depending on the clients' skin type and care.

 

 
 

HEALING PROCESS 

 

It is important to know that this is a procedure that inserts pigment inside the skin and there is 30-day healing process. This process has different phases that the brows go trough before appearing “normal” and perfect.

 

The client must have in mind that during the healing process there will be factors that alter the appearance of the brows, such as: 

 

The day of the procedure: The technician will shape the brows only accordingly to the client’s physiognomy to determine a harmonious shape that fits the structure and the color of the client’s natural hair (we do not use colors that are not the same as the client’s natural hair). We cannot imitate a shape of another individual unless bone structure and features are the same.

 

Day 2-4: The brow color will get much darker and appear thicker too. This is normal; color will lighten up starting day 5.

 

Day 5-8: Brows will have a light layer of scabbing and flaking; this is due to new skin regenerating with the implanted pigment. It is absolutely essential that the client DOES NOT pick of remove any of these scabs. Doing so will remove all the pigment and scar the skin. It is essential to let it heal by itself.

 

Day 9-10: the scabbing will be gone and so will most of the micro-strokes in brows. Do no worry; these come back to the surface of the skin gradually.

 

Day 11-28: The brows will have many hair strokes back but will seem a bit patchy. Most hair strokes will be back but a touch up is needed to fill areas that have faded.

 

Day 30: your brows will be full, have all the missing strokes retouched and will look great once again. You will have hyper-realistic hair-like strokes and perfect brows.

 

If you feel like this healing process is something you do not want to experience, microblading might not be the best option for you.

 

  • If you have an event in which you do not want to attend with darker or flaky brows it is best to schedule a time that is convenient for you.
