Is Microblading Painful?
A little. Microblading uses a set of fine medical-grade needles to score the skin in the shape of an eyelash so it's slightly painful.
I have some scabbing after my treatment can I pick them off?
No! Leave them be. When they are ready to come off they will. Pulling them off can result in pulling the ink off that was put there in the process resulting in a blank spot where the microbladed hair should have been.
Is there anything I need to do prior to treatment?
Not really, no. Your esthetician will clean the treatment area prior to treatment so you really do not need to do anything before treatment.
How long does a treatment take?
Treatments can take 1-2 hours or sometimes longer depending on what you need to be done. Your esthetician can give you a better idea of treatment time after they see you.
Is there anything I need to know about the healing process?
Did we mention not to pick the scabs? Don't pick the scabs! Aside from that, you will notice the color will fade somewhat over the healing process and the final color may take up to a month to finally see.
Is a touch-up session necessary?
While not always necessary, a touch-up session is a great way to fill in spots that may have turned out lighter than you wanted or if you want more added.
Typically you can do another session in 4-6 weeks if you desire.
How long does it last?
Micorblading is considered a semi-permanent service and typically lasts 1-3 years. It can last longer it just depends on your skin.
You can always have the service done again down the road if you desire.
PRE AND POST TREATMENT CARE AND INSTRUCTIONS
Prior to your procedure, clients are advised of the following:
Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours.
Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone.
No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.
Feel free to come in with their brow makeup on so our technician can see your every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows!
After your procedure, clients MUST follow these instructions:
Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled downed boiling water. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (the clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using a new q-tip, re-apply healing balm to the brows.
Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to eyebrows for at least 5-7 days.
Do not over apply healing balm.
Do not immerse the brow area in water for 14 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.
Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.
Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours.
Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation.
Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.
No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after.
