What is Microblading
Microblading is a new form of semi-permanent make-up for your eyebrows. It is a manual process performed with a handheld tool that permanent make-up artists call a microblade.
Using a microblade, permanent make-up artists deposit pigment into the upper layers of the skin in hair-like incisions to enhance, reshape or fill in your eyebrows. The results give you breathtaking and natural looking eyebrows!
How long does Microblading last?
Depending on your skin type and care, the pigment will fade slowly over 12-18 months.
Is Microblading painful?
The service can be a little uncomfortable for those who are more sensitive. However, there is an anesthetic applied during to keep this to a minimum to where it is completely tolerable.
How long does the service last?
The appointment should take about 1-2 hours.
What happens during the touch up?
The touch up is recommended 4-6 weeks after initial treatment. During your touch up, Linda will fill in missing hairs, add or make hairs longer or just achieve a darker color.
What’s the Microblading healing process?
Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. True reflection of healed color can only be assessed 3-4 weeks after treatment. Touch-ups and/or correction of the shape/design is recommended at least 4 weeks after initial treatment. It will go from too dark, to too light, to just right!
Immediately after the procedure, the pigment will appear very sharp and dark. This is because the pigment is still seating on top of your skin and has not yet settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually (do not be alarmed if you see some pigment on the cotton swab as this is excess pigment or LIMFA that is naturally exiting your skin).
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
Your eyebrows will be the lightest tones during the first week because the color is absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin. Later skin cells push it back to the upper layers. Once the healing is completed, you will enjoy a pair of beautiful, new, natural looking eyebrows.
