Microblading is a semi-permanent way to fill in your eyebrows. It is the process of creating fine, hairlike strokes using a manual microblade tool and pigment. Microblading frees up your time from the mundane task of filling in your eyebrows with gels and pencils and gives you the ability to alter the shape, fill in, and define your brows.
During the appointment, the eyebrow shape is defined through a series of measurements. Once a shape is agreed upon with the client, hairlike strokes are made on the surface of the skin and pigment is implanted. The “strokes” are done manually and result in a hair-like effect. This process is considered semi-permanent makeup and is done using pigment.
There is a lidocaine solution used for 20 minutes prior to numb the area and another topical anesthetic that can be used during the procedure.
Once the shape is re-measured and agreed upon, any eyebrow within the new or enhanced brow shape stays, and additional hair-like strokes are made around it. Your hair will continue to grow as usual.
The initial appointment is 3 hours and the follow-up is 1.5 hours. There is no downtime; however, there are restrictions of what can go near or on your eyebrows. On average, your microblading will last up to 18 months before you will need a touch-up. It is recommended to avoid Ibuprofen, Tylenol, and alcohol 3 days prior to your procedure.
