Microblading/ Hairstoke Brows
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of permanent makeup where a small blade is used to create thin hair-like strokes throughout the clients brows, giving the illusion of a full, natural, more defined brow.
Is microblading permanent/ How long does microblading last?
Microblading is considered permanent because even though the color fades, molecules of color are still left in the skin, as well as a permanent change to the skin. Microblading is a tatoo- therefore microblading is technically permanent. There is a misconception that microblading is a semi-permanent procedure. Because the depth typically is rather shallow and the implanted pigment width is so fine, this method by itself requires more frequent touch-ups to maintain the new color, with results lasting 1-3 years.
Who is Microblading good for?
Microblading is meant to be a natural enhancement. It looks most natural on clients who have full brow hair, and are wanting to perfect their shape and add natural fullness. The more hair you have, the more natural it will appear.
This procedure is ideal for those who prefer a super natural look. If you are hoping to ditch the brow makeup entirely and fill your brows in daily, you are better suited for a combination or powder brow. Microblading is also best for young & normal to dry skin.
Aftercare for Microblading:
Everything you need to care for your brows will be given to you the day of your appointment.
o Only wash your brows with the cleanser I give you. This means keeping them dry in the shower, and avoiding sweating, saunas, and steam for the next 10-14 days. No working out until all flaking has finished.
o Cleanse morning and night for 7 days with the provided cleanser.
o Apply a THIN layer (think grain of rice) of aftercare balm to the brows 2-3x a day for 14 days.
o You may wear makeup around the brows, but leave at least one inch around them at all times to prevent infection.
o Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks.
o Do not touch, pick, rub, or scratch the brows. Do not pick the scabs or flakes as they come off, this will remove the pigment and lead to patchiness and scarring.
