What is Microblading?

Microblading, or Manual Microstroking, is a semi-permanent technique of eyebrow pigmentation. Sometimes referred to as 3D brows, microblading was originated in Asia and has become very popular in the United States over the past couple of years.  Microblading is done by using a hand held instrument with a small row of fine needles at the end which allow for natural looking, fine hairstrokes.   Microblading is ideal for anyone looking to enhance their eyebrows. Those suffering from alopecia, or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who just aren’t happy with their eyebrows.  

What to expect within the first few weeks of your Microbladed Eyebrows:

Initially, your eyebrows will appear darker, but significantly fade over the first 2 weeks. A touch up done 30 days after your first visit as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.  

How long will the color last?

The results can last anywhere from 11 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the color retention, such as how oily your skin is. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.

What is the difference between Microblading and Permanent (Eyebrow) Tattoos?


The Microblading Treatment

Microblading takes two appointments to complete.   During the first appointment you will have a consultation with the microblading artist. This is where you can discuss what you are expecting from the process. You can describe what look you’re hoping for. Once we have an idea on what the end result is expected to be we draw them on using a waterproof pencil. This is the longest part of the treatment and can take hours because we will keep working on the shape until you are completely satisfied with it.  Then, begins the actual eyebrow microblading process.   The actual microblading process takes about about one hour, but it can vary from person to person.  During the treatment we apply numbing cream so you hopefully feel little to no pain during the process.

After the Microblading Treatment

A few days after microblading, your eyebrows will look darker than the color used.  This usually starts fading after the first week and a more “natural” color starts appearing.  There may be some mild scabbing which should heal by 30 days. Aftercare instructions will be given and you must follow them in order to achieve the best outcome from the procedure.   A second touch up appointment (which is included in the price) is needed 30 days after your first treatment. This appointment is necessary because as the treated area heals, some areas of your skin may not hold pigment as well as other areas so we may need to make necessary adjustments and add pigment.  This appointment may take up to an hour.   Keep in mind, everyone’s skin is different and retains the pigment differently.  For example, if you have oily skin the pigment may hold the color differently than expected.  Your skin undertone also may have an effect on the ink's color retention and we may need to add color to adjust it. These kind of corrections are normal and can be expected from any microblading treatment.  

How to Prepare for the Treatment:

Before the Microblading the procedure, avoid sun exposure for at least 2 weeks. Avoid waxing or tinting the eyebrows for about 3 days before the treatment. For 24 hours before the procedure, Do NOT take: Caffeine, Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Ibuprofen, omega-3, or any substance that thins out your blood. Acetaminophen is ok. If you have any skin infection please let us know right away. Microblading can not be performed onto an affected skin. The Microblading process can take up to 4 hours to complete. So please eat before you come in for your treatment so you don’t feel tired, dizzy or lightheaded.

After Microblading

How you care for your freshly Microbladed eyebrows will affect the healing process and appearance of your new brows.   On the first day following the procedure you should avoid washing your face. During the next few days, wash your face carefully around the eyebrow and avoid getting water on the treated area.  During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath. For the first week after the procedure, do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area.  Using completely clean, sanitized hands apply the post-care ointment (Aquafor) to the eyebrow area.  This can be done once at night time, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.   3-5 days after the procedure, your eyebrows may become itchy and start flaking. Please don’t itch or touch the area. The itchiness will quickly stop if you follow the aftercare instructions. For the first two weeks after the procedure avoid sweating, swimming, saunas, hot baths, jacuzzi’s, any type of tanning, chemical peels, laser treatments, Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face area, airborne debris, touching the eyebrow (except for when you’re rinsing and applying Aquafor).   During the 30 day healing period, avoid touching the area.  Avoid using cosmetics.   If you have any questions, concerns or are just not sure if your healing process is what is expected call us immediately at (347) 512-7534 to discuss it. Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.
