Microblading is a tattooing process where an artist implants pigment in and around the eyebrow area to give a realistic look. The artist uses a pen containing hair like needles to implant pigment into the bottom layer of the epidermis. While the origins of microblading harken back to its ancient Chinese roots, today the process is simple and efficient. A good microblading artist will render results that appear quite realistic. The goal is to not have to worry about your eyebrows everyday! I love seeing the results in my clients and how happy they are with my work.
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing procedure. It isn't meant to last forever. The end result of microblading will vary by the individual. Results lasting three years is not uncommon but some people need a touch-up while others need a touch up sooner rather than later. Several factors can determine how well the pigment will keep. We will take time at the beginning of your first appointment to assess the best solution for your unique skin!
For optimal results, clients should stop (where possible) blood thinners, alcohol, ibuprofen, and any other pain relievers. Retin A and fish oil must be stopped at least 10 days before microblading. Caffeine the day of the procedure may increase discomfort levels and blood flow. Botox administered within three weeks before the appointment will result in a reschedule. It is also not advised to undergo a microblading procedure before a vacation or any other prolonged rigorous activity.
While everyone's pain tolerance varies, I numb my clients with topical numbing solution. My past clients have described the feeling as a 1 on a scale of 10 for pain. Special care can be taken for clients with a particularly low pain tolerance.
I provide each of my clients an in-depth brow mapping and analysis. We will both work together to outline the perfect shape of brow that compliments both your facial and bone structure as well as your personal preference.
