What is Microblading?
Microblading is the latest in the beauty industry. It gives you amazing brows long term. Imagine you wake up with perfect brows EVERYDAY!!! Yes! We have been trained with the best company in the market, PhiBrows. Our Stylist is a certified PhiBrows Artist.
Why is microblading different than regular PMU?
Microblading is in the family of permanent makeup. It is the process of drawing brows “hair by hair” with ink, specially formulated for microblading eyebrows and a tool that looks like a scalpel but instead is made up of many very small needles. Microblading is not done with a machine.
This procedure, however, is not as permanent as regular permanent makeup, it only lasts about 18 to 24 months. This is because microblading is done at a more superficial level than that of a regular tattoo or a regular permanent makeup procedure. The skin is composed of 3 layers, the Epidermis, the Dermis and the Subcutis. While a regular PMU procedure and a body tattoo is done on the deepest layer, microblading is done on the top, most superficial layer. Making it a semi-permanent “tattoo”.
Why do I need a touch up?
Any tattoo process needs a touch up 4 weeks later. In 4 weeks the ink has “settled” and healed and sometimes in some spots the ink will disappear. The skin treats the tattoo as a trauma so it tries to push the ink out as it heals. This is normal. In 4 weeks we see the final result and we can reapply where needed.
How do I take care of my brows after the procedure?
Please for the next 10 days avoid:
– Sun Exposure
– Going swimming or diving
– Makeup on and around your brows
– Scratching your brows while they are healing
Dry skin after care:
If you have Dry skin the best option is to use Vaseline. Every 3 hours wash the area with soap and water and re-apply a thin layer of Vaseline for about 7-10 days until you see the area is healed.
Oily skin after care:
If you have Oily skin then we will put after care product that you will leave for 24 hrs. After the 24 hrs you will remove it with warm water and let it “dry heal”, meaning don’t do anything to it.
Does it hurt?
It is a tattoo, so it feels like a tattoo. If you haven’t had a tattoo then it feels like hair removal.
Are the blades disposable?
Our blades are 100% disposable avoiding any type of cross contamination.
