Microblading is new method. It is considered to be semi-permanent hair stroke technique. Using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into under Epidermis. Because we are impacting color closer to the surface. There is no spilling under the skin.
This method is ideal for who has 1 to 4 level skin to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People who has alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss, Microblading is best treatment for them.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color. The results are a natural and full looking brow. At the beginning, the brows appear darker but grow importantly over a two week period. It is definitely critical to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
The results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on skin. However, a touch up once a year is recommended.
1. What is microblading?
Microblading is considered semi permanent make up. It is a Manuel process by using tiny needles that made up a small blade to insert pigment into upper layers of skin (under epidermis). The result is very realistic by creating HAIR STROKE follow natural eyebrow hair direction. The result can last from 8 months - 18 months depend on your skin
2. What is Ombre?
Ombre is also permanent make up. We will use the small tattoo machine to insert pigment under layer of the skin. The result will look like powder make up. With Ombre technique, we insert larger amount of pigment so it would last longer than Microblading from 1-3 years depending on skin.
3. What is Microblading & Shading?
Microblading & Shading are the combination of Microblading method using manuel tool & Ombre method using machine. For clients with more natural eyebrows hair, microblading is good option. It will look fuller and more enhancement. However, for clients has no eyebrow hair or less eyebrow hair, Microblading is not enough. Microblading only gives you 30-50% fuller look. But when you do combination microblading with shading, it will give you 80-100% fuller and it will cover all the gap in the eyebrow.
3. How long does it take for procedure?
2-3 hours depend on eyebrow
4. Is it painful?
To minimize the pain, I will numb your eyebrow 30 minutes before the application with numbing cream. Also, during application, I will apply anesthesia to your eyebrow. For those who are sensitive, you may feel a little bit uncomfortable but completely bearable.
5. Who is ideal candidate for procedure?
People suffer from alopecia, trichotillomania, any health condition that cause hair loss, or people are not happy with their eyebrow.
6. Who is Not a candidate for procedure?
Breast feeding, pregnant, keloid scar, diabetic
Note: client with high blood pressure or thyroid medication may experience color loss more and need more frequent touch up. Doctor note is needed to be able to get the treatment.
Microblading isn't recommended for Oily Skin but other method such as Ombre or Combination
7. Is there anything I need to prepare before procedure?
Do not wax, tweezer or tint eyebrow 3 days before procedure
Do not tan 2 weeks before treatment or have sunburned your face
No facial, chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser 2 weeks before treatment
Do not have Botox 3 weeks before treatment
Do not take Omega 3 (fish oil), vitamin E one week before treatment (natural blood thinners)
Do not work out the day of the procedure
To avoid excessive bleeding, poor color deposit and stroke healing:
Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood) 24-28 hours before procedure
Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drink on the day of treatment
8. How about the tool, sanitation and pigment?
I am using pigment made in USA. Qualify cosmetic pigment over 20 years.
Every tool I am using is disposable and trash right after use
The working area is 100% clean. I wrap the bed, light, working table with plastic to make sure no contaminated.
9. After care
Clean your brow with distilled water for first 2 days
3rd- 10th day no more water, only ointment
Please be aware that you need to do good after care for first 10 days in order to get best healing result. So I don’t recommend you to get microblading if there is any trip to the beach or expose to the sun.
10. What is healing process?
Day 1: happy with new brows
Day2-4: the color will get darker than day 1
Day 5-7: The brow start to scabbing and falling off
Day 8-10: The brows are gone
Day 14-28: The brows color is coming back, but sill patchy and uneven
Weeks 6: Ready for touch up
Day 44 (after touch up): They are beautiful and fuller
11. What to expect for 6 weeks touch up?
The touch up is recommended 6 weeks after the initial full set. I will add more stroke if needed or adjust the color darker/ lighter as client request.
12. When should I come back after 6 weeks touch up
I recommend client to come back after 1 year which is annual touch. And the process will be the same.
