Also known as microstroking, or 3D brows, is a permanent makeup procedure, using a manual hand method to implant pigment into the skin in the form of crisp, fine, realistic hair strokes to create beautiful, maintenance-free, sweat-proof, smudge-proof eyebrows.
MICROBLADING WITH SHADINg
Machine or manual shading is an addition to the microblading procedure, for a softer look behind the strokes. A perfect option for those who don't have a lot of brow hair to begin with.
Brows created by machine with a soft, natural look that starts light at the bulb and ends darker at the tail.
Brows created by machine for a more filled-in-by-makeup look with a soft, powdery finish and even color throughout.
A great choice for those with a generous amount of existing brow hair who want to fill in the gaps and spaces where hair is missing or sparse.
Days 1-7: Wash and moisturize 2-5 times daily (depending on skin type) to remove bacteria and dead skin. Blot lymph as it appears. Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and a gentle antibacterial soap such as Dial, Cetaphil, Neutrogena, ect. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows for 10 seconds. Rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. Gently pat with a clean tissue to thoroughly dry. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare lotion (given to you by me) with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over apply as this will suffocate your healing skin and delay the healing process. The lotion should be barely noticeable after application. Never put the aftercare lotion on a wet or damp tattoo.
DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area. Avoid sleeping on your face the first 10 days. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking your scabs can cause scarring and will pull the pigment off the skin.
Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning 3-4 weeks after procedure, wear a hat when possible.
Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days, the salt in your sweat will fade the pigment.
NO facials, Botox, chemical treatments, or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
The aftercare is the most important step in the outcome of your investment. Failure to follow these aftercare instructions will produce poor results in your healed eyebrows.
what to expect.
Permanent makeup is a two-step procedure, the initial procedure and the following touch-up 6 to 8 weeks after. Color and shape can be adjusted at the touch up appointment. Healed eyebrows will be 20-30% lighter than the initial results.
APPROXIMATE DAILY HEALING SCHEDULE:
DAYS 1-2: Your brows are approximately 20-40% darker, bolder, and more solid than your healed result. Under the pigment, skin is red and pigment has been deposited into the layer of skin containing dead skin cells; combined giving the appearance of a darker color. There may be minimal swelling, but typically the eyebrow area does not retain much fluid, so swelling will be limited. The top layer of skin will begin to shed in about 5-7 days and you will see a loss of color. This is normal. DO NOT SCRATCH OR PICK.
DAYS 3-4: Your eyebrows may begin to itch and the pigment may appear somewhat raised. DO NOT SCRATCH OR PICK.
DAYS 5-7: The skin is now rapidly exfoliating. The color under the exfoliating skin will start to appear very light and day by day it will start to appear darker. Please be patient and give the color a couple weeks to become darker.
DAYS 30-40: Now is the time to critique your brows. The tattoo has now become part of the dermis, seen under the epidermis.
YOU MAY NOT BE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MICROBLADING IF:
- You have very large pores or very oily skin. The oils in your skin will make the pigment fade faster and the strokes won't appear as crisp, or you may not retain the pigment well at all. The constant production of oil will cause hair strokes to heal with a soft, diffused look. The results will appear more of a powdery appearance. In this case, a Powder Brow is the best choice for you.
- Have Trichotillomania.
- Prone to keloid scars.
- Heavy smoker. The color retention will not be ideal.
