WHAT IS MACROBLADING?
Microblading, is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo procedure available to everyone looking to improve the appearance of sparse or thin brows. Also known as micro-stroking, a small hand held blade is used to deposit ink into the skin area of your eyebrows. Unlike permanent cosmetic penciled tattooed eyebrows that can appear harsh or fake, microblading is more natural looking. This procedure is done with hundreds of tiny feather-like strokes, applied to the sparse areas creating a texture that looks like your own eyebrow hair. The results is a fuller and natural brows that can last anywhere from 12-24 months, depending on skin type and lifestyle
Microblading should be performed by a trained technician! A trained technician is knowledgeable with brow shaping and will carefully draw in the desired shape and thickness of the brows before the procedure. Unlike permanent tattooing where the pigment is implanted deeply into the skin area, microblading is semi-permanent. An iron oxide base colour is used and applied to the upper layer of the dermis which allows the colour to softly fade and vanish over time.
There are a few things you should know about the procedure and aftercare if you are considering having this service done. Make sure you are not attending any special event or vacationing after the procedure. The colour will appear quite dark and the skin underneath will be red and swollen, expect 10-14 days for the skin to heal and the pigment to fade to a more natural shade.
Microblading is similar to tattoo care, your skin will be sensitive afterward, and you’ll need to avoid touching the area or getting it wet for up to 10 days after your appointment. Don’t wear any eye makeup or foundations. You will also need to avoid saunas, swimming and excessive sweating until the area is completely healed.
To keep your colour looking vibrant and the microblade stokes crisp, we recommend a touch up after 12-18 months.
