How does it work?
Microblading is the process of making small superficial cuts in the brow line with a small blade, which are then filled in with pigments to create darker and fuller brows. It mimics the hair shape and fills in thinning arches and, or bald spots.
Does it hurt?
Before we begin microblading, your brows are treated with numbing ointment to reduce discomfort. The level of pain depends on your pain tolerance, but it should be equivalent to getting your brows threaded or waxed.
What happens after?
You should avoid getting your brows wet until completely healed. Your brows may look darker a few days after microblading, but it is completely normal. You will be provided with a follow-up appointment.
How long does it last?
Microblading can last up to two years depending on how well you take care of your brows. Depends on your skin type- for example, if you have oily skin, your brows may fade faster and may need a retouch within a year.
What should I do before my eyebrow procedure?
- If you have an ideal shape, bring a few reference photos with you to your appointment.
- If you are particular with your shape, you may fill in your eyebrow as you normally would so we can take into consideration the shape you desire.
- If you are on any blood thinners, we recommend you discuss any changes to medications with your doctor.
- Do not drink any alcohol 24 hours before and limit the amount of caffeine you consume.
- If you have been on Accutane in the past year, we recommend you wait at least one year before considering this procedure and discuss this procedure with your doctor.
- It is highly recommended you avoid intense sun exposure and tanning bed exposure for 20 days before and after your procedure. If you show up to your appointment with a new tan or sunburn, you will need to reschedule.
- Avoid waxing the procedure area 2-3 days prior.
- Avoid getting any type of facial peel at least one week prior.
