WHAT ARE THE PRE AND POST CARE PROCEDURES?

 

In order to achieve the best results, it is best to follow these pre care instructions. 

  • Avoid exercises, alcohol, caffeine and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 72 hours.  

  • Avoid tanning so we can assess your natural skin tone.

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least two weeks prior.

  • Feel free to come in with your brow makeup on so our Microblading specialist can see the every day look you prefer. Reference pictures of shapes and colors of brows are always welcomed. We will then work together to create the perfect brows! 

 

In order to achieve the best results, it is important to follow these post care instructions. 

  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 14 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.      

  • Do not put makeup on the brow area for a minimum of 14 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.

  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours.    

  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation. 

  • Do not go swimming, tanning or into saunas for at least 14 days.     

  • No face scrubs or chemical peels at least 2 weeks after. 

  • Avoid sun exposer for 30 prior and post Microblading.

 

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THE PROCEDURE?

 

Microblading is not suitable for the following clients:

  • Have heart conditions or using heart medications

  • Have diabetes (will require a physician's note)

  • Have skin disease or irritations 

  • Have had Botox in the last 2 weeks

  • Anyone who has any serious medical conditions may require a physician's note. 

  • Pregnant or nursing ladies

 

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who we deem not suitable for this procedure or for any other reason. Our brow technicians make the decision to microblade an individual based on their own discretion.

 

RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS?

 

We take all proper precautions for a safe session by using sterilised equipment, new needles and in a sanitised environment.  Should clients follow our pre and post care instructions, there should be minimal risks or complications.  Although allergic reactions to the pigments are rare, it could be possible for certain individuals. We will always conduct a pigment patch test as part of the consultation session.

 

WHAT IF I DO NOT LIKE IT?

 

As with all cosmetic procedures, individuals should not make their choices lightly.  We always recommend clients do their research, understand the procedure and compare different artists' work and portfolio when making their decisions. Our brow specialist will do her utmost to shape and style the eyebrows to the clients satisfaction prior to the procedure. Every effort will be made to achieve an even appearance, but please realize our faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Uneven appearance can be fixed during the touch up session. Pigment discoloration and colour correction can also be fixed during the touch up session. Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if no additional touch ups are done.

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

 

Eyebrows play such an important role in framing our face. They really can give you a natural facelift, helping you to look fresher and enhance your natural beauty. Microblading is the world's fastest growing beauty treatment and it's easy to see why with it's long-lasting and dramatic effect.

Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. 

 

Microblading, also known as ‘Semi-permanent eyebrows’, is a procedure categorised under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine.  The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine blade and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look.

Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow colour and skin tone will also be taken into consideration. 

 

CONSULTATION

 

Before we book your first Microblading session you’ll have a Consultation session with Amelia, our Microblading specialist. 

 

During this session, Amelia will discuss the preferred shape, style & colour.

She’ll also talk through the procedure and subsequent routine for care, post treatment. And finally, we will conduct a patch test.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

For your first Microblading session, the entire procedure should take about 1.5hrs. You may feel a scratching over your eyebrow as the technician applies the pigment, but it’s not painful.

 

You’ll have a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Microblading session takes place after 6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1hr to complete.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?

The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and colour will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The colour will fade by up to 40% as it heals.

 

In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you may notice a minor itching & slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area. The eyebrows will lighten up in colour as they heal.  It takes 14+ days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the colour to fully set in.

 

You'll notice the colour is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed.

 

IS THE TOUCH UP SESSION NECESSARY?

Yes! A touch up session after 6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during first session and will need to be refilled.  Pigment colour may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the colour for the whole year!

 

IS IT PAINFUL?

 

The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal.  Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Since Microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deep as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime.  Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type (normal, oily, dry), age (youthful/mature). Your skincare routine will also affect the lasting effect of the pigment: patients who tan, uses products with AHA or Glycolic Acid with fade faster as your skin will resurface faster. Each individual's colour retention within the skin will vary. To maintain the brows looking fresh, a touch up is suggested every 12-18 months. Clients can let the microbladed area fade over time, but please note a slight shadow may remain.
