Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that mimics that look of individual hair strokes. Unlike a traditional tattoo, pigment is applied with a hand tool rather than a gun and not as deep into the skin. You may have heard microblading referred to as feather stroking, microstroking, 3D brows, or eyebrow embroidery.
Most of our clients report little to no pain, and we will make every effort to make our you as comfortable as possible. This includes using high quality numbing agents and taking the time to make sure they have activated properly.
With proper aftercare you can expect your new brows to last 12-18 months after your touchup.
Your brows may feel tender as the numbing agents wear off, but should not be painful. Healing varies in each individual, but this is what the process may look like:
Day 1 : WOW I love my new brows!
Days 2-4 : Yikes! These guys are dark and solid looking.
Days 5-8 : Oh no! My brows are falling off! These days your skin may look dry or like dandruff, as the skin is healing. It is important to not pick or peel at your brows.
Days 9-11 : Where did my brows go? After the peeling period is over, the pigment may appear very faded. This is normal and some may resurface as you continue to heal. It is possible that even with good care you may loose some original hair strokes and it could alter the shape of one (or both) brows. This is one of the reasons touchup appointments are so important!
Days 12-28 : Oh there they are! Some color returned and brows feel healed.
After the touchup : YES!!! Once your brows are completely healed, keeping them out of the sun and applying sunscreen will help them last.
