Microblading

Microblading also referred to as embroidery, feathering, and a host of other similar names is a form of semi-permanent makeup, whereby hair-like incision strokes are created along the eyebrow to attempt to either enhance, redesign or create a natural looking appearance on the brows. The procedure entails the use of a Nanoblade, which is dipped into a pigment that has been matched to the natural hair color and skin tone and is then glided along a sketched outline of the brow that has been drawn on and scrutinized beforehand. Whilst only penetrating into the upper skin, the pigment is deposited simultaneously with the creation of the hair-like stroke leaving a feathered outline. Microblading provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. Over time the strokes can blur and fade and will need to be refreshed.

Pre-& Post Care

The outcome of your brows is highly dependent upon proper aftercare. In order for your new brows to heal properly (and look their best) these Pre-& Post Care Instructions found below are of the vital.

Microblading Pre-care

No alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before the procedure.

Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to the procedure.

Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure.

No brow waxing, tinting, microdermabrasion or chemical peels one week before.

Do not work out 24 hours before the procedure.

Discontinue Retin-A 4 Weeks Prior.

Do not use AHA skin care products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure.

No Botox around the brow area 2 weeks prior.

Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

Microblading Post-care

Do not touch brows or surrounding area for 24 hours.

After 24 hours keep the brow area clean by using a gentle fragrance-free cleanser and water with freshly washed hands morning and night (2x/day) if necessary. Do not use a washcloth or sponge. A clean area by moving in the direction of the hair growth gently.

Apply a very thin layer of the aftercare serum given (for the number of days recommended by your artist) with freshly washed hands or a Q tip.

Do not apply Vaseline, Petroleum, A & D ointments to the area as the risk of infection is very high.

DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss.

Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, pool (chlorine is irritating), sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 3 weeks.

Avoid physical effort, gym and any other activity that may cause excessive sweating for at least 5 and up to 14 days.

Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.

NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for two weeks.

NO Botox around the brow area for two weeks after.

NO facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.

After 14 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading. (At least SPF 30, if not 50)

Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.

Avoid Retin-A close to brow area.

Please note: Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be anywhere from 20-40% darker and bolder in color and 15% thicker. This can last up to 10 days after the treatment while the initial healing process takes place (This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures). The treated area may feel a bit like sunburn afterward but there should be minimal discomfort. During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own.
The complete healing process takes about 6-8 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating. Wait at least 6 weeks to see the true color, as it seems to take on new strength, and it is only after 6-8 weeks that your touch-up/adjustment can be done (which is INCLUDED in the initial cost).

Microblading

Microblading
$400
The process of using hair strokes or an embroidery technique to etch pigment into the outer layer of the skin with tiny, sterile and disposable blades. The result is to mimic the appearance of additional eyebrow hair within the existing hair or where there is no eyebrow hair at all

Combo Brow
$500
It offers the best of both 'powdered' and 'hair strokes' effects combined together to achieve a beautifully natural yet defined brow. The inner brow is feathered with hair strokes while the tails are powdered to achieve the perfect definition.

Ombre Powder brows
$500
The Ombre effect comes from using two different brow colors, one lighter than the other. It is more natural looking than a solid color and is THE latest thing in eyebrow semi-permanent make up. Also, a better option for those who have oily skin/ large pores.

Micropigmentation
$500
This method is done with a digital machine. The color is implanted deeper into the skin-known as the dermal layer. It lasts longer than Microblading/Eyebrow Embroidery method. In Micropigmentation, the needle penetrates the pigment under the skin more efficiently, right in the first session whereas the same is not possible in Microblading. This is why Micropigmentation looks more delicate and crisper; however, Microblading is known to offer natural and more beautiful results.

Complimentary Touch-Up
$125
Complimentary touch up after your initial appointment- your complimentary touch up MUST be within 6-8 weeks from your initial appt.

During your consultation, your specialist will work with you to discuss your goals, lifestyle, the shape of your existing brows and the problem areas you wish to address. Bringing reference photos of your desired brow shape is highly recommended and greatly appreciated. Your specialist will advise and show examples of brow shapes which will work with each client face shape and brow type.
