Microblading

Category: Microblading
  • It is rarely recommended that you use straight black for an eyebrow procedure unless a stark black is the only color that will show up after healing on an extremely dark skin tone.
  • This is rare, as we do not want to operate in absolutes as the ability to adjust on the follow-up visit is reduced.

  • Needle configuration.
  • The smaller needle configuration the more ash will appear when healed.

  • For eyebrow tattoos, a cosmetic tattooing machine is used to implant pigment into your skin with a variety of tiny needles. The difference is that with a regular tattoo machine the pigment is implanted much closer to the skin’s surface as compared to the eyebrow microblading pen.
  • Microblading uses a handheld tool known as a microblading pen instead of a motorized tattooing machine.
  • The difference with microblading is that the technique can achieve hair-like strokes to create the illusion of actual hairs, whereas eyebrow tattoos are more block-like in their end result to make it look as though the eyebrow has been colored in with a brow pencil or powder.
  • Microblading involves the meticulous drawing of each hair stroke following the direction and length of the existing hairs.
  • Microblading implants the pigment, which is close to the skin, to create the look of realistic fine hairs, creating a more natural look than eyebrow tattoos. However, eyebrow tattoos may last longer as the eyebrow pen more solidly draws the pigment into the skin, as well as inserts it into deeper layers.

a. Generally, microblading can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. The initial service includes a follow up visit for minor tweaking within 3-4 weeks of the service. A touch up is recommended after 18 months or possibly sooner if required. b. Since this is a semi-permanent treatment some fading will occur, however, that depends on your skin type and lifestyle. For example, if you lead an outdoor lifestyle spending a lot of time in the sun the pigment may fade sooner.

a. The microblading healing process generally takes 25 to 30 days. However, duration of the healing process will be slightly different for each person. It depends on many factors, including your: i. age ii. overall health iii. skin type b. In general, during the first 10 to 14 days the appearance of your eyebrows, color, definition, and texture will change almost every day. c. You’ll also experience different sensations in your skin. At first, your face will feel tender, tight, and painful. This will turn into itchiness and flaking, which eventually subsides. d. Touchups that are done every 12 to 18 months, also have some healing time.

As a tip for avoiding gray brows, it never hurts to put a drop or two of an ochre in a brown to ward off the grays which can be brought on by an ash skin tone that is not easily recognized. This is an insurance technique much like we use with orange added to a lip pigment to avoid a lip healing too blue.

  • Your provider will know to start the eyebrow procedure with a pigment that tends to be lighter or cool (green or yellow/green), this is a safe, moderate approach.
  • At the follow-up visit, the depth and temperature of the color of this brow can be modified more easily rather than having a brow healed too dark and too warm (red, or red/yellow = orange.
Category: Microblading

Pigment that remains closer to the surface of the skin will be exposed to more light and appear less cool than pigment that resides deeper in the skin.

Black brown pigments will serve the eyebrow client much better than a straight black because straight black may fade to blue or gray tone overtime

A technician will use a sharp blade to cut tiny hair-like strokes into the brow bone during the tattoo-esque experience to imitate natural hair and deposit pigment underneath the skin, so it is vitally important that the skin can handle treatment in this region.

Retinol is a type of vitamin A found in many skin care products. Please review the products you use in your skincare regimen. The benefit of retinol is that it increases in the development of collagen, which is the number one anti-aging ally.

However, the greatest drawback though is the fact that it dries up the skin and makes it flaky, which will make your microblading fade. The earlier new skin cells replace old skin cells, the faster they disappear. Frequent retinol use reduces the duration of this procedure by half.

It is also advised that exfoliating acids or retinol should not be used before microblading for at least four weeks. During microblading, acids and retinol may thin or sensitize your skin and may cause your skin to tear and aggravate.

  • Your natural eyebrow hairs will continue to grow outside of the treatment area. This means that you will still need to pluck the occasional stray hair (depending on your own hair growth).
  • If you have rather lustrous and bushy brows, then you may have to have these shaped every so often. One benefit of the service is that is provides a perfect guide for touching up.
  • Speak to your provider if you have naturally light-colored eyebrow hairs and the pigment from your microblading is significantly darker to discuss periodic touchups.
  • Also, consider that dying may not be immediately recommended soon after the procedure as eyebrow dye can irritate the microbladed area.

Microblading does not generally have an effect on your natural hair growth. The procedure does neither, prevent any progressive hair loss or encourage the growth.

a. Eyebrows will gradually fade over time. The general consensus is that the color fades by roughly 50% in a year or more. b.
