Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that fills in thin eyebrow areas to make them look fuller. Unlike a traditional tattoo, which is permanent, the coloring from microblading may last for up to 3 years. This is because microblading uses different tools and a smaller amount of pigment.
On the day of the procedure the patient will discuss with our esthetician any questions or concerns. Our esthetician will explain the procedure and the options, including style and color, and make recommendations. Before the procedure starts, our esthetician will use a topical numbing ointment on the brow area, which helps to reduce discomfort during the microblading procedure. Once the client is comfortable, the technician begins the procedure. The process is very detailed and can take up to 2 hours. Patinets may feel a scraping-type of sensation in the brow area, but the process is usually only minimally painful and very tolerable. Due to the semi-permanent nature of the pigment used and the depth into which the pigment is placed touch ups will be necessary to maintain the desired color and shape. An initial touch up is done within 4-6 weeks post procedure, otherwise pigment may last up to 3 years post procedure. Pre Procedure - Avoiding caffeine beverages or alcohol on the day of the procedure. - Tinting brows before the appointment. - No tanning or sunbathing for 3 days before the appointment. - No waxing or plucking eyebrows within 2 days beforehand. - No chemical peels and other intense facial treatments for at least 2 to 3 weeks before the procedure. - Wash and style hair before the procedure, as the brows must not come into contact with water for at least 7 days. - Discontinue vitamin A (Retinol) and Botox treatments for at least month beforehand. - Stop taking fish oil or any other natural blood thinners, such as vitamin E, at least 1 week before the procedure. - Avoiding aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (as these types of medications are blood thinners). - Do not plan to work out or do any activities that cause excessive sweating after your appointment. Post Procedure - Gently wash over the eyebrows with a fingertip, using antibacterial soap and water for about 10 seconds, rinsing, and then patting dry. - Use a minimal amount of moisturizing ointment. - Keep the brows away from water for 710 days, which includes not taking long showers or swimming. - Avoid putting makeup on the brow area while it is actively healing to keep the area as clean as possible. - Do not pick at the scabs. - Avoid direct sunlight or tanning for at least 4 weeks after the procedure. - Do not use facial scrubs or peels for at least 4 weeks after the procedure. - Do not sleep on the face for at least 10 days post procedure
