MICROBLADING HAIRSTROKE.

The cost of  each  procedure can be found on the Book Appointment page.

Microblading is also known by a variety of names such as micro-stroking, 3-D eyebrow or eyebrow embroidery. Microblading does not require your entire eyebrow to be shaved off.  Microblading is Permanent Makeup applied using a handheld tool to insert pigment into the upper layers of skin – as opposed to a machine. Because the color is deposited closer to the surface of the skin, the hair strokes appear crisp and very fine. .

Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of his or her eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. You and I will determine the best pigment color suited for your skin & skin undertones to match your eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are very realistic.

Similar to permanent makeup brow treatments using a machine, my microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that can be very natural looking, but nonetheless it is still a form of cosmetic tattooing. To keep discomfort to a minimum, anesthetic creams are used before and during the procedure. The entire process takes approximately 60 – 90 minutes and there is little down time. The area will swell slightly and may appear inflamed for a short time.  I recommend you allow 20 days healing time before your next big event or special photographs. 

FAQ'S

How does microblading work?

The pigment is applied with a specific manual tool that has a row of several fine tattoo needles to create thin hair like marks in the skin.  Needles and the blade type are chosen according to the technique and the skin type. The pigment is bladed just below the epidermis and the most shallow part of the dermis, making extremely fine natural looking hair strokes. A very natural result is achieved, as the hair strokes are bladed into the skin according to the natural hair growth direction. Microblading is a 2 part procedure. A touch up will need to be completed within 1-6 months after your initial treatment.

Is microblading technique safe?

It is very safe, as it uses only vegetable dye which is natural and organic. All instruments that enter the skin or come in contact with body fluids are sealed and sterilized before use and disposed of after use. Cross contamination guidelines are strictly adhered to.

Is it painful?

Usually the first thing everyone wants to know is whether this hurts and if so, how painful is it?  Pain ranges from zero to a very slight uncomfortable feeling. Anesthetics work better on some people than others.  The overall sensation is like your eyebrows are being brushed.  This may vary according to an individual’s pain threshold. Many customers fall asleep, as they feel nothing during the process. 

Is microblading for everyone?

Pregnant, nursing and anyone under the age of 18 will not be considered for tattooing.  Insulin dependent and individuals on blood thinners are not good candidates for permanent makeup. People with VERY oily skin are not good candidates as they may not do well with pigment retention.  Please let me know if any of these apply.

What colors are available?

A wide range of colors are available to complement your skin tone and hair color.

How long does it last?

Permanent cosmetics do fade over time.  All color fades and your cosmetic tattoo will require maintenance. The amount of fading depends on several variables including medications you are on and topical treatments, but is primarily due to sun (ultra-violet) exposure; therefore measures should be taken to protect your permanent cosmetics from the sun, tanning beds etc.  All procedures are done with one of the best pigment lines in the world.

The cosmetics implantation technique deposits color pigment into the upper layer of the skin.  It’s called permanent because it can’t be washed off & some of those pigment molecules stay in the skin forever. Unlike traditional tattoos performed on the body, permanent cosmetics professionals do not use traditional tattoo ink . Permanent cosmetics pigment has a larger molecule, is more delicate and designed to work with the skin’s undertones and to mimic hair. Every person’s skin is different regarding pigment retention.

 

Factors which affect longevity of permanent cosmetics are: color selected, age, thickness of skin, scarring of skin, use of skin care products, injectables, laser treatments, medication and sun exposure. You will need periodic refreshing of color, depending on how light the shade of implanted pigment was, as well as factors mentioned above.

Touch ups are recommended once a year to boost color and to prevent natural fading. Staying on top of your color boosts will keep you from having to start over completely & have to pay for the procedure in full.

Permanent makeup done by another person is not considered touch-up.  Please call for a consult.
