What Is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing where pigment is implanted in the upper layers of the skin with a handheld microblade tool instead of a machine. This technique allows for natural hair-like strokes to be placed for partial or full enhancement of thinning brows.
At AesthetiSpa, our micropigmentation artist, Kim Bunch, is trained in the latest Microblading and Permanent Makeup techniques and will guide you in the best treatment for brows that look beautiful and natural.
How Long Does Microblading Take?
The initial visit is approximately 2 hours. During this time Kim will work with you to shape and style your brows to your preference. Once the ideal shape and style are created with you she will present multiple pigment color options until one is found that best matches your existing hair color, skin tone and personal preference.
At your initial visit, a follow up visit will be scheduled for 6 weeks and another application will be performed to ensure longevity of the pigment.
What Is The Recovery From Microblading?
There is no downtime, however, there are some restrictions on activity while the brows are healing. No swimming, sweating, tanning or prolonged sun exposure is recommended for the first two weeks. The brow area will be red, slightly swollen and sore to the touch initially and you will need to use a gentle cleanser and avoid any irritating products while healing.
Your brow color will initially appear darker and you will have minor scabbing. It takes one to two weeks to heal overall and approximately four weeks for the color to completely settle in.
Is Microblading Painful?
We make every effort to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. A strong topical anesthetic is used to initially numb the area and is reapplied as needed.
Are The Results Permanent?
No microblading is not permanent. The results are semi-permanent. Microblading pigment is not placed as deep in the skin as with permanent cosmetic procedures.
How Long Do Results From Microblading Last?
Individual results will vary, however, most people experience 12 – 15 months if proper aftercare is taken and the second application occurs within an appropriate time.
