What is microblading?
Microblading is an eyebrow tattooing technique where an artist uses a special tool to manually deposit pigment into the brow area to create hair-like strokes to improve fullness and shape. The pigment is deposited into the epidermis and will gradually lighten and fade overtime, requiring regular color boosts to keep the color and pigment fresh and visible. Microblading is sometimes called “semi-permanent” because of the nature that it will fade and lighten over time, but MICROBLADING IS A TATTOO and should be treated as such. It is important to know that pigment from the microblading may remain in the skin for an indefinite amount of time.
Microblading works best on skin that is in great health with very little signs of aging or sun damage. Microblading lends to a very natural look. If you want a more dramatic, makeup-type look, you may be more interested in the powder brow technique.
What is Powder Brow?
Powder brow permanent makeup is a technique that uses a machine with a small needle configuration to create a more “filled in” look. The result tends to be soft and natural, but will have more of a powdery makeup look to it, hence the name “powder brows.” This technique is best for skin types that are aging, textured, very oily or sun-damaged. Microblading tends to not heal best with these skin types. Powder brow is also the best technique for those with little-to-no natural brow hair, or when there is a significant difference in hair density within the desired shape.
During your consultation, the permanent makeup artist will assess your skin and recommend which technique they believe will work best for your skin type as well as your desired results.
How much does it cost?
$550 includes the initial appointment as well as a touch up session 6-8 weeks later
- Permanent makeup is typically a two-part process so the touch up appointment is included to achieve the best results
- A $25 consultation is required, but will be applied to your service
- A $100 non-refundable retainer fee is required to secure your appointment, this will be applied to your final total
- Permanent makeup requires regular color boosts – about every 1-2 years – to keep the pigment color refreshed, as it does gradually light and fade over time
What to expect
We require an informed consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for permanent makeup and also to discuss your desired result and determine which technique is best for you. Then your first session may be scheduled — a $100 non-refundable retainer fee is required to secure your appointment. The procedure takes approximately 2 – 2.5 hours.
At your first permanent makeup session, the technician will design an eyebrow shape including as much of the client’s existing brow hair as possible. The technician does not use a stencil but will create a brow shape that is custom to the client’s face and bone structure. Then the technician will “brow map” to duplicate the shape on both brows to ensure symmetry. The client will approve of the brow shape before proceeding. Then, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the eyebrow area. Then the permanent makeup process will begin. All of the tools and necessary items for the procedure are disposable and are properly disposed of after the procedure.
It is important to remember that the artist will try to make the brows as symmetrical as possible, however no two sides of the face are perfectly symmetrical and skin is subject to gravity, especially over time.
A “touch up” service is scheduled for 6-8 weeks later for best results, and this appointment is included in the initial price. The touch up will take about 90 minutes.
Does it hurt?
This varies from person to person, depending on sensitivity of the client. Some clients may feel slight discomfort but most find the process tolerable, comparing the feeling to a paper cut or a rough scratch. After the first pass, an anesthetic gel will be applied to the skin which will allow for more comfort moving forward with the service.
What happens after the procedure?
- Skin may be sensitive, red and/or slightly swollen.
- You may experience some scabbing — DO NOT PICK THE SCABS as this can cause you to lose pigment.
- Closely follow the after care instructions provided by your technician, as this will determine the success of the overall result
- Initially the color may appear too dark, but the color will fade 30-50% over 4-6 weeks.
- A “touch up” appointment is highly advised, and built into the service price, and may be performed 6-8 weeks after the initial service. This will also help determine the overall result.
Not ideal for:
- Individuals with oily skin and large pores – pigment has a harder time retaining
- Individuals with previous permanent makeup
- Individuals who have used retinoids within the last 4-6 weeks
- Individuals who have had deep chemical or laser peels within the last 6 weeks
- Individuals who have had Botox within the last 2 weeks (can be done after 2 weeks and Botox should be fresh before the procedure so that the brows are placed where the client likes them)
- Individuals on blood thinners – excess bleeding can cause the pigment to not retain (may receive a note from doctor to stop blood thinners for a period of time prior to service)
(Depending on severity of medical condition, some individuals may still be able to have the procedure with a note from their doctor)
