What is Microblading?
Microblading is a tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs. It is done with a hand-held tool that puts pigment into the skin, but doesn’t go as deep as a normal tattoo would.
It’s also semi-permanent. Your microbladed brows should last about 18 months.
You receive an initial appointment and then once the brow has healed, you return for a touch-up, which is included in the price.
– Includes initial appointment and (1) touch up
Additional touch ups $100
Preparing for Your Appointment
Disclaimer: Results will vary in all permanent cosmetic applications. Old, preexisting work may need extra applications to hide any discolorations or symmetry issues.
The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.
- Do not pick, tweeze, wax, or perform electrolysis one week before procedure.
- Do not tan two weeks prior or have a sunburned face.
- Do not receive any facials or peels two weeks before procedure.
- Discontinue vitamin A and retinol products at least three weeks before procedure.
- Do not have botox or any fillers done three weeks before procedure.
- Do not take Fish Oil or vitamin E one week before procedure. (Natural blood thinners)
- Do not wax or tint your eyebrows three days before procedure.
- Do not drink alcohol two days before.
- Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief. This thins the blood.
What to expect
- You should expect to feel sore for at least two to three hours after the procedure, somewhat like a sunburn or chappy.
- Remember the color is going to be very dark for the first few days until it starts healing. Color will soften, and it is hard to predict how much so. Touching area with fingers and rubbing can lead to infections of the treated area.
- Do not use ice, as it WILL cause infection.
- Expect to have some flaking. Keep applying the A&D ointment.
- Expect your skin to be white around the area where the numbing cream was applied. It will disappear when the numbing wears off, this is blanching.
- If you experience itching, this just means it is in the process of healing and might be dry. Please do not scratch it or pull/rub at it! Applying ointment will help relieve the discomfort of tightness.
- Do not touch area with your fingers, as it could cause a infection.
- Do not double dip into ointment product as it could contaminate and cause a infection. Use a new Q-Tip or implement each time!
- Apply ointment three to five times a day. Keep the area slightly moist, more is not better, a thin veil is all you need.
- No makeup in general area, as it could cause a infection.
- Avoid direct contact with animals, sun, soap, steam, jacuzzi, swimming, exercising or excessive heat.
- Do not rub, as it could take color out.
- Do not use sunblock on brows until they are totally healed.
- Pigment loss could leave the tattooing area uneven and spotty, and the symmetry or lines may be off. If this is bothersome to you, please schedule a touch up.
- You are responsible for your touch up follow up if needed.
- Touch ups are 4 to 6 weeks after application, any sooner can cause scarring.
- Color has to cure and heal in skin for 4 to 6 weeks to determine outcome.
- All procedures must Heal, Peel, and Fade, this can take up to ten days. If there is pigment loss, it could leave your tattooing uneven and spotty.
- Avoid AHA’S, VIT A, RETIN A, OR LIKE PEELING PRODUCTS, OR SERVICES….IT WILL FADE THEM.
What not to expect
- You should not expect to have only one service applied for a lifetime or after a initial application, as we cannot fully predict how it may heal. However one procedure can be enough if the results are desirable. Permanent makeup can be a process. The foundation is applied and then we build up to the color desired! Pigment loss can result in the tattooing looking uneven or with off symmetry, even spotty and incomplete.
Treatment & Precautions
- You must keep the area moist at all times until completely healed. Use the A&D ointment provided. This will help keep peeling down to a minimum and maintain your color.
- Use a Q-tip to apply the ointment.
- Do not use any harsh cleansers or over the counter healing creams, ointments. This may cause irritation and burning and could possibly lead to infection/scarring/color loss.
- Remember that this is an open wound and should be treated as one, cleaned and cared for.
- Do not go swimming until completely healed. The bacteria in the water may cause infection or pull color out.
- Stay out of the sun and tanning booths, this will not only irritate the wound but fade your color tremendously. UVB, UVA LIGHT reeks havoc on all tattoo’s. To maintain color, please apply sunscreen.
- Keep your hands away from the area. Don’t scratch, rub, pick, or touch. Your hands and fingernails carry many germs.
If you see the area starting to peel, do not help it along. Doing so will pull color out completely and can cause spotting and unevenness/symmetry issues
