SEMI-PERMANENT EYEBROW TATTOO
WHAT IS 3D MICROBLADING?
Microblading, also first known as eyebrow embroidery, is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that allows you to correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows. Eyebrow Microblading is performed by manually depositing pigment in the basal layer of the epidermis by a special pen. It does not involve the use of a machine. Unlike permanent makeup brow treatments, Microblading techniques involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that are more natural looking than tattooing, brow pencils or powders. The blade of microblading pen contains numerous pins that are 3 times thinner than the needles used for tattooing.
HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The process takes about 2-3 hours (most of it is prep time). Procedure generally lasts 1-3 years, depending on proper aftercare. Clients with oily skin may experience fading sooner. Procedure is recommended to be touched up once a year to keep the eyebrows looking fresh.
WHY DO I NEED A TOUCH-UP?
Since the pigment is absorbed differently and healing time is different in each individual person, a touchup is required to bring your brows to its full potential. Think of the first session as a rough draft. This will also help determine how well you take the pigment, see areas of higher pigment loss and will allow changes to either the shape, color, or thickness.
In some cases, a third session will be required depending on desired look. (Additional costs required)
DOES IT HURT?
Topical anesthetic is used before and during procedure to reduce any discomfort. It has often been compared to threading or scratches. Pain threshold will also depend on tolerance of each individual.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS LIKE?
Microblading is a two-step treatment (possibly more), consisting of an initial procedure and then a touch up 6-8 weeks after. After we take your before photo, we will then shape your eyebrows to your desired look, topical anesthetic is then applied, and then we begin the procedure. You may feel some discomfort or pain during the first pass but after additional anesthetic is applied the rest of the procedure should be pretty painless. Once you’re numb, the pigment is deposited. During healing, it's normal to experience some pigment loss; this is why we have the touch up in place. The process is considered to be complete 4 weeks after the first touch up.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
Healing time varies from individual to individual. Usually, it takes about a week to ten days for the epithelial crust to form and slough off. Your skin will be considered healed after that happens. The pigment takes some time to settle into the skin, a good month should pass before we consider the process complete. 90% of the results will vary per individual which is why proper aftercare is so important and will fully determine final results. With oilier skin, the pigment will heal a lot softer and more of a powder finish, dryer skin will heal with a crisper stroke appearance. (Please refer to aftercare instructions for further information after procedure).
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

If you are currently ill, on medical treatment, taking any blood thinning medication, on Accutane or pregnant, unfortunately I will not be able to perform this procedure.

Results will vary with each individual person. Depending on each individual person's preference, you may still need to draw them to achieve a fuller desired look.
