What is microblading and powder brows?

Microblading uses pigment to create hyper realistic hair like strokes that enhances the eyebrows but in a very subtle, natural looking way. This is ideal for people who have normal to dry skin. Powder uses pin dot pigment application to recreate flawless, freshly applied make up you wear everyday. Powder effect is also known as microshading or ombre brows. This is best for all skin types especially those with oily skin. Both treatments requires a two step procedure – initial insertion of the pigment and establishing the shape of your brows and a touch up at 6-8 weeks.

Why is a 6-8 Week Touch-Up Needed?

Everyone’s skin heals differently. It is influenced by your skin type, aftercare, lifestyle, exposure to sun, etc. Most guests develop areas of fading after the first treatment. It is important to understand that this is a two-part process and the 6-8 week Touch Up will complete the procedure, and after healing, you will see the finished results. Some clients may require 3 appointments.

What should I expect after the treatment?

You may experience minor swelling, redness and tenderness immediately after procedure. This may last a few hours up to a day. You should not require down time and with few exceptions, may resume regular activities the following day after your procedure, but avoid excessive sweating, swimming, saunas etc. Your tattoo will appear dark after the first day and gradually lighten as the tissue heals.

Fading is normal, and with proper Aftercare, scabbing is rare. Flaking is a normal part of the healing process as your skin regenerates and pigment is lost from the most outer epidermis. Understand that Microblading & Ombre’ Powder Brows is a two part process and any inconsistencies will be addressed at your 6-8 Week Touch-Up appointment. Sun exposure should be avoided and I advise applying an unscented SPF 30+ to keep your work beautiful for a longer period of time.
