Microblading is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hairstroke technique.
It is done using 14 very fine needles to deposit pigments into the epidermis.
Microblading is super natural and soft; It’s meant to be natural, not makeup ready. If you’re looking for a dramatic look or want to make your eyebrows pop you would have to use a powder.
Microblading is super easy to enhance since you already have a guide to follow on the days you’re looking for a dramatic look.
Eyebrow microblading goes by a few different names like, microstroking, micropigmentation, eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering, and 3D eyebrows.
No matter the name, the procedure of microblading eyebrows is relatively new, but it has been popular in parts of Asia and Europe for roughly 25 years.
Microblading eyebrows continues to grow in popularity in the United States, and even though it looks like the party might have arrived a little late here, it’s actually a good thing as it has allowed the techniques to improve since its origin.
A microblade tool looks similar to an exacto knife, but instead of there being one big blade, there is a series of micro needles. The microblade is dipped into a selected color of pigment and then used to make a fine cut, microstroke, in the skin.
This process results in the pigment being implanted into the skin, which is known as micropigmentation. With the proper technique, the microbladed eyebrow results look beautiful and completely natural.
The best possible healed results require strict adherence to the microblading aftercare instructions, and understanding the microblading healing process.
The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo, because that’s exactly what it is. More specifically, microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo.
The pigment used for microblading isn’t implanted into the skin as deeply compared to the depth used for permanent cosmetic procedures. The proper depth for the color to be implanted during the microblading procedure is the upper layer of the dermis. If the microstroke doesn’t go deep enough, the color retention will be poor, and if it’s too deep, it causes scarring and the healed strokes look blurry instead of fine and crisp.
The pigment being implanted to the correct depth, combined with its iron oxide base is what gives microblading results the appearance of natural looking eyebrows. The semi permanent qualities of the microblading pigment prevent it from fading into unnatural shades that are so common with permanent cosmetics.
There won’t be any love lost when saying, “See ya Later” to the daily eyebrow routine. Although microbladed eyebrows don’t require daily maintenance, you will still have to pluck or wax your eyebrows.
First, the perfect eyebrow shape for your face is mapped out, then we color match the pigment to your eyebrow hairs. The tool is made of 14 tiny needles is used to feather hair strokes into the skin.
The scratching sound from the blade may sound scary, but after a layer of numbing cream, clients say it doesn’t hurt.
Microblading is semi-permanent and lasts between one and three years.
It’s highly recommended clients do not have sun or tanning bed exposure for 30 days prior to microblading.
The skin does tend to scab after microblading, but that will heal. I recommend making an effort not to sweat the day of the procedure or for 10 days after.
Consuming alcohol or caffeine the night before or day of microblading isn’t recommended either.
Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure:
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
Here is the secret recipe for getting amazing microblading results!
It’s all in the aftercare!
Here’s a good acronym by Tina Davies to help you out, just think of: A – W – M which stands for Absolutely Wonderful Make-up or better yet: Absorb, Wash, and Moisturize!
The day of the treatment: Absorb
After the procedure, gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until the oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids.
Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don’t worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
AWM should have you covered, but here are some extra tips to help with a smooth and easy recovery.
Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results with your microblading procedure. Don’t forget your new favourite acronym: AWM -Absorb, Wash, Moisturize!
Important note about showering:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
What to expect the next few days.
The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed.
Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker.
There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside.
Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result.
New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.
Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.
The skin begins to flake — peeling from the outside edges first.
Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.
