WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is performed by depositing pigment superficially into the epidermis of the eyebrow. After numbing the area with a topical cream, small incisions are created, using a fine and very precise blade. Pigment is then deposited into the incisions, resulting in an incredibly natural appearing “eyebrow hair.
WHO BENEFITS FROM MICROBLADING?
The answer is almost EVERYONE, or the following.
Thin brows caused by over plucking for many years
Difficulty applying conventional makeup
Alopecia or undergoing chemotherapy
WHAT IS THE MICROBLADING PROCESS?
A topical numbing cream is applied which will take approximately 20 minutes to take effect. Then, Ali will use a specially-made tool to delicately scratch the "brow hair" into the skin, strand-by-strand. Dye is applied into the brow design. The entire treatment time is approximately two hours.
There is no downtime, however the brow will take about two weeks to fully heal. The brow may appear darker than you are used to for a few days, then will lighten into the desired color within two weeks. Please follow after-care instructions and return for the Touch-up Session (included in the price of the Microblading treatment) within 6-8 weeks.
Between the initial treatment and the Touch-up Session, you may experience peeling (typically noticeable only up close) and fading of the brow. This is natural and part of the treatment process. The Touch-up Session will build on the color that has already been absorbed into the skin.
You Microbladed Brow will last for up to 12 months, depending on individual circumstances (e.g. skin type, thickness and depth of color chosen, and lifestyle), and will fade gradually and naturally.
