WHAT IS EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
Eyebrow microblading is a semi-permanent technique that can give you beautiful, natural-looking result. A small handheld tool made up of several tiny needles is used to add pigment to the superficial layer of the skin. This creates tiny hairstrokes that blend in with the flow and direction of your natural eyebrow hair.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
When it comes to eyebrow microblading, where do I start? There are so many benefits, but most importantly, you'll save time in the morning. Say goodbye to your daily makeup routine! Another thing is that you'll always look great when you're sweating or swimming, look more polished, refreshed and younger. The transformations I make are unreal sometimes! Ladies look 10-15 years younger when they walk out the door!
WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
Almost anyone can benefit from eyebrow microblading in my eyes! However, there are a few factors that may make you a better candidate for this procedure:
- You have dry to combination skin (cannot have oily skin with large pores).
- You have sparse or thinning eyebrows.
- You fill in your eyebrows with makeup creating a natural look.
- You want to add natural definition to your eyebrows.
- You are not satisfied with the shape of your natural eyebrows.
- You have gaps in your brows due to over-plucking or other reasons.
IS NUMBING USED DURING AN EYEBROW MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT?
Absolutely, I use a strong numbing agent with lidocaine and epinephrine to ensure your procedure is comfortable and almost painless. This way, you can relax and know that you're in good hands.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
The best way to prepare for your eyebrow microblading appointment is to avoid consuming alcohol and caffeine 24 hours prior. This includes decaf, tea, energy drinks, and exercise supplements. You should also avoid taking ibuprofen tablets 24 hours prior (Advil, Niacin, Aspirin, Robaxacet). Additionally, stop taking fish oils 3 days prior to your appointment. It's also helpful for your skin to be in good health on the procedure area itself and sun exposure-free 1 week prior to your appointment.
Caffeine, alcohol and ibuprofen can cause blood to thin, which increases bleeding and discomfort. Following these instructions will ensure that you have the best eyebrow microblading experience possible.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AN EYEBROW MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT?
I'll start with an eyebrow microblading consultation. This is where we discuss shape, size, colour and go over any questions you might have before we start to create the eyebrow mapping. Once that's done, i'll have you take a look and make any adjustments if needed before moving on to the procedure!
During the eyebrow microblading procedure the I'll apply numbing and use a sterile, single-use tool to microblade your eyebrows. After, the pigment is applied a brush is used to massage into the area, wipe and repeat until process till completed! The first few minutes you might be able to feel a tiny bit of discomfort but as the numbing absorbs into your skin it's basically painless!
HOW LONG DOES A EYEBROW MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT TAKE?
It can take up to two hours to get your eyebrows microbladed which includes consultation, eyebrow mapping and the actual procedure itself. Don't worry, the microblading application is relatively quick and is roughly 30-40 minutes depending on the client!
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER AN EYEBROW MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT?
After your eyebrow microblading appointment you can expect the following:
- Your eyebrows will be darker, fuller, larger and will fade 20-50%.
- They will take some time to heal, usually around 5-10 days then will appear light until the pigment resurfaces, then darkens in about 6 weeks.
- You will need to keep them clean, dry and away from water and sweat.
- They will need to be retouched in 6-8 weeks from the initial appointment as it is a two step process, especially with microblading. Any adjustments can be made at this time!
DOES EYEBROW MICROBLADING HARM THE SKIN?
Microblading is a great way to improve your appearance without causing any permanent damage to your skin! The procedure is fairly simple and straight forward, and as long as it's done properly by an experienced microblading artist like myself, you will not have to worry about any scarring or other side effects.
WHAT IF I HAVE AN EXISTING EYEBROW TATTOO?
If you're considering revamping your previous eyebrow microblading but unsure if you're suitable, it doesn't hurt to send a photo of your existing eyebrow tattoo to email@example.com. This way, I can confirm that your tattoo can be worked with and provide the best advice for achieving your goal!
