What is Microblading?
Microblading or Brow Embroidery is a Cosmetic Tattooing that is a part of Permanent Make-up procedure used on the eyebrow area. Eyebrows are recreated strand-by-strand using lifelike strokes applied directly onto the skin. The strokes accurately replicates hair reshaping your eyebrows. The treatment replaces long mornings in front of the mirror and many eyebrow pencils. It assures perfectly shaped and balanced brows all-day, everyday.
Is Microblading painful?
Some people are more sensitive to pain then others. Before and during the procedure we use topical anesthetics (numbing creams ) that are FDA approved. It takes a couple of minutes for your skin to absorb the anesthetics. Once numbing cream is absorbed, the sensation is minimal. On a scale of 1 to 10, with “1” being no discomfort, clients often experience between a 2 or 3 pain level during the treatment. Other factors such as menstrual cycles can also affect level of sensitivity.
Can I have an allergic reaction ?
Some people may be allergic to pigment. The chances of having an allergic reaction are less than a quarter of one percent (0.25%). However, we do offer a Patch Test to our clients if they don’t feel comfortable or they not sure if they are allergic to the pigment. The Patch Test will be applied to the scalp area. After the patch test we would wait about a week to see if there is any allergic reaction. If there isn't any allergic reaction, we can preform the procedure.
How long do results last?
Results can last from 6 to 18 months, fading gradually without any discoloration. Longevity depends on a variety of different factors, such as, skin type, color of pigment, lifestyle and aftercare treatment.
Is Microblading safe?
We only use highest-grade pharmaceutical pigments. Our pigments are cosmetic grade, that are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. We do not use products that have not met safety standards or those that contain “vegetable dyes” that are unstable and may change color after time. Sanitation is our number one priority. All of our tools are single use needles in a sterile and sealed package and are discarded after each treatment.
