What is Microblading or Micropigmentation?
newest PMU technique for creating the most natural looking eyebrows. This procedure is done by implementing a color pigment into the upper layer of the skin by means of small, sterile needles to create the most natural hair-like strokes. The process is done in two sessions and will last up to 24 months as it is considered a semi-permanent tattoo. Microblading is for those with uneven, too thin, over-tweezed and not growing back eyebrows. Including for those with no eyebrow hair.
What is the difference between cosmetic tattooing and standard body art tattooing?
cosmetic tattooing is a natural looking enhancement used to create the most natural look, it is softer and more subtle. We stay on the top surface of skin to allow proper fading and color quality. Body tattoos use ink while cosmetic tattoo procedures involve pigments. Pigment is designed to gently fade over time. Fading will allow the artist to make changes to color and shape over the years as client’s natural coloration and facial changes occur.
What is the procedure?
The procedure is done in two sessions. At your initial appointment, and before the start of a treatment, we will determine the color pigment to match your natural brow hair color, take your brow measurements and draw in a sketch based on your facial shape and bone structure. Second session (perfecting session) is done in 4-8 weeks after your initial procedure. At this time, we will go over any strokes that have not retained the pigment and make any additional changes needed or desired to create your perfect brows.
Please note, you are responsibility to book your touch up appointments. If you do not come in for your touchup within 4-8 weeks and your tattoo comes back too faded additional charges may apply.
How will my brows look immediately after the procedure?
During the first 4 weeks after the procedure, your new brows will go through a healing process. In the first week, your eyebrows will appear about 30-50% darker and more intense. This will gradually lighten during the complete healing process. As the outside skin exfoliates and renews, color pigment will start to flake off and sometimes may look patchy. It is very important that you do not pick or scratch tattoed area as it will remove the outer layer of your pigment before your skin is ready. Allow flaking of the skin to happen naturally as only then your skin and pigment will heal properly. Redness and swelling is minimal.
How long will my new brows last?
There are many factors determining the length of time and overall results of the desired shape and pigment retention. Generally, it will last anywhere from 12-24 months, depending on your skin type (oily skin will absorb faster) and life style (sun exposure and chemicals used).Skin is a live organ and each client will react different. Please understand that final results CAN NOT BE GUARANTEED.
How will my brows look in the future?
Your eyebrow tattoo will eventually look softer and have more of a powdered look. This happens with all clients as the skin ages. To keep your hair strokes looking good, we highly suggest to upkeep your touchup appointment within 6-9 months and 12-18 months. Results vary with each client.
Please note that clients with oily skin will get a softer/powdery result sooner.
