What is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup where through a process of manually inserting pigment into the upper layers of the skin - the thickness, shape and desired style of eyebrows can be altered.
The results can generally last up to 2 years but effects will greatly vary from person to person depending on skin type, skin care routine, lifestyle and other factors.
Does it hurt?
Each individual has a unique pain threshold, but most clients report little to no discomfort. It has been described as scratchy and irritating but not painful. After the initial pass a topical aesthetic is applied to help ease any discomfort.
What is the difference between microblading and powder/ombre brows.
The short answer - everything
The longer answer - The main differences start with the result, although both techniques achieve a natural looking result, microblading is the manual tattooing of individual hair strokes with use of a disposable blade; the ‘tattooing’ literally looks like natural hairs.
Whereas powder/ombre brows achieve a crisper defined shape to the brow and have a more ‘shaded’ style effect; comparative to a defined makeup brow.
The techniques used are also completely different - with microblading we use a manual disposable hand tool, tiny surface incisions are made and the ink is manually inserted into the incisions. Ombre/Powder brows are achieved with the use of a cosmetic tattoo pen (machine) the ink is inserted into the skin with the use of the machine in a shading style effect.

Be prepared to lie very still for a long period of time. Many patients bring headphones to listen to music during their appointment.

Bring a stress ball or chew gum if you feel you will need something to distract you.

Day 1 (Day of treatment): 30 minutes after the procedure gently blot the area with a sterile wipe (i.e saline on a makeup pad or water wipe) do this every 30 minutes for the next 2-3 hours after treatment in order to avoid build-up of blood or lymph in the area. After the 2-3 hour mark gently clean the area with a very small amount of sterile water on a cotton pad, just barely damp, NOT wet and then apply a thin layer of ointment.
Day 2-3 Carefully blot the area in the morning and in the evening. It is important to remove dead skin and bacteria. Make sure your hands are clean, and you use sterile water. Do not rub, tug or scrub the brows. After wiping, apply a thin layer of ointment. Your eyebrows must not look greasy, glossy or shiny. If they do, you have used too much. Also, when wiping the brows do not make aggressive movements or manipulate the skin that way. It is highly important to be gentle.
Day 4-14 Continue cleaning your face every morning and evening with water and gentle soap. Do not use products that contain acids and exfoliants. Only use antibacterial soap (such as Cetaphil or QV) After you wash your eyebrows, it is time to dry them. Do this by gently tapping with a cotton pad or a soft tissue. Once you clean the eyebrow area, you may apply an extremely thin layer of ointment in the same way as for the first couple of days after the treatment.
In order to get the best results as well as to prevent side-effects, avoid the following things:
Wearing make-up on the brow area for at least 10 days
Sweating and working out, as well as hot saunas or hot baths for at least a week
Picking, scratching or peeling your eyebrows as you do not want to cause scarring of the area
Being directly exposed to the sun or salon tanning, UV/UVA rays, or chemicals for at least 4 weeks as you do not want to cause a shift in colour or premature fading of colour
Long and hot showers for at least 10 days after the procedure
Face creams containing Retin-A or Glicolic acid, and products other than those recommended (ointment) (on the brow area)
Facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
Sleeping on your face for the first 10 days. Also, use a clean pillowcase
Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning (such as garage and basement cleaning) where there is a lot of airborne debris
