Microblading

Imagine having fuller-looking, perfectly shaped brows everyday… no worries about your makeup smudging, or getting them wet, or reapplying makeup throughout the day. Microblading is a manual Microstroking technique used to create the appearance of brow hairs. This yields a realistic and natural result that can give the brow a fuller appearance. This technique enables us to create crisp, fine “hair” strokes that can help to fill in thin brows or brows with bald spots. It also allows us to create total brow reconstruction for those who have completely bare brows and/or have been impacted by a condition that has reduced or eliminated their brow hair growth. Prior to the procedure we will shape and customize your brows to a size and shape that compliments your facial features and brings out your eyes. We will also select a color that best matches your natural complexion and skin tone baring in mind undertones and skin conditions. Microblading does not require any tweezing, waxing, plucking, or shaving of the brows and does not damage the existing brow hair. Topical anesthetics are applied before and during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. The procedure requires approximately two hours and there is no “down time”. A touch up is required 6-12 weeks after the initial procedure. After that touch ups are recommended yearly to maintain the colour and crispness of the strokes.

Please note:  Microblading is not for everyone…. For the first 10-12 days, eyebrows will appear darker, bolder, and thicker due to scab formation and the natural skin healing process of the immune system. This is common and to be expected for all permanent makeup procedures.

Preparing For Your Procedure

Before Care

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure.

  • Do not tan or have a sunburned face.

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil or Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure.

  • No alcohol or caffeine 2 days before the procedure.

  • No waxing or tinting 3 days before the procedure.

  • No tweezing/ waxing at least 48 hours before the procedure; electrolysis no less than five days before. Do not resume any method of hair removal for at least two weeks.

  • Eyebrow tinting should be done or removed no sooner than 48 hours before, or two weeks after the procedure.

      Please be aware that the result of the procedure is depending the following: Medication and health conditions, Skin Conditions –  i.e. oily and poor skin, very dry/flaky skin, sun-damaged skin, loose or laxed skin, Natural skin undertones, Alcohol intake and smoking, General stress, immune system, Poor diet and not following the aftercare instructions, may affect your healed results.

Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink has their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to other compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectations and know that she/he may need more frequent adjustments than others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.

After Care & Healing

Your post-procedure care consists of cleaning your eye without aftercare pads for the first 4 hours every hour after your procedure and then implementing 10 days dry healing. This means that your brows cannot get wet at all. We will provide you with protective visors for showering. It would be best to wash and cleanse your face with a washcloth or wipes for these ten days to avoid any splashing on your brows. In addition, not profuse sweating (hot yoga and the sauna will have to be on pause for 10 days), no creams, no makeup directly on the brows, and no sun exposure (if you know you will need to be in the sun for extended periods of time you must wear a wide-brimmed hat). You must let the scabbing process happen naturally. This is very important for your retention and skin healing. Do NOT pick at the scabs, scratch your brows, peel your scabs off, or scrub the area. This can result in scarring and will affect your overall retention of the pigment. After 10 days you may resume your normal life and beauty routines.

  • Pregnant or nursing
