Hi, how can I help?

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a relatively new manual technique considered to be permanent makeup or cosmetic tattoo, it is also known as eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking or 3D brows. This procedure allows the artist to enhance the appearance of your brows, or to fully create a new shape, by manually placing pigments in the upper layers of the skin in the form of hair like strokes that can hardly be distinguished from real hair, providing an incredibly natural look.

The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, the colors blend perfectly together resulting in natural, flawless, fuller looking brows. A sparse or missing brow can be completely restored by reshaping it with the PhiBrows technique.As soon as the procedure is completed, the brows appear darker and bolder but will fade significantly over a two – four week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done no sooner than 4 weeks after the procedure and no later than 6 weeks, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment. The results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment. This technique may be used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brows have little to no hair.People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as anyone who is simply tired of shaping their brows every morning.Microblading is Permanent makeup and as such is considered permanent because pigment is tattooed into the upper dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo or colorant (pigment) in general, fading does occur, requiring periodic maintenance to refresh the color.

Who is Microblading for?

This technique may be used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brows have little to no hair. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as anyone who is simply tired of shaping their brows every morning.

Why is it necessary to do a touch up?

ouch up is necessary because everyone heals differently and therefore the outcomes vary. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch up session, the final adjustments are made to assure the client’s satisfaction.

Can the touch up be done in less than four weeks?

This is not recommended because the healing needs to be completed before the final results are seen. Final adjustments should only be done after the initial work has stabilized.

How long does Microblading last?

Generally Microblading lasts six to eighteen months, depending on skin type…normal, oily, or dry and age…young or mature. It is not permanent like a tattoo, because the pigments are not implanted so deeply into the skin. Skincare also affects the duration of the pigments. To maintain the brows, touch may be done every six to eighteen months.

Are there any pre care instructions?

Prior to the start of your session, avoid caffeine, alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen and any vitamins for seventy-two hours. Sometimes these have the effect of thinning your blood. Avoid tanning to allow your natural skin tone to be assessed.

Are there any post-procedure instructions?

Gently clean brows using a cotton ball moistened with water. Gently wipe away Skin Candy (healing balm) and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish buildup) that may have occurred on the skin. Re-apply skin candy (healing balm) after lightly cleaning with a tissue. Apply a light layer of skin candy morning and night to brows for five to seven days. Do not over apply Skin Candy. Do not immerse brows in water for two weeks. Avoid face area when showering. When washing your face, make sure to avoid brows. Do not use makeup on the brows for up to two weeks. Avoid alcohol, aspirin, ibuprofen and vitamins that may cause your blood to thin for twenty-four hours. Do not peel or scratch at the scabbing as your brow area heals. No swimming, tanning or saunas for two weeks. No face scrubs or chemical peels for two weeks. DETAILS IN WRITING WILL BE PROVIDED

Proper procedures and precautions are used to ensure safe procedures. At Glambrows, we pride ourselves to use 100% disposable tools to ensure the safety of all our customers. When pre and post care instructions are followed the risk of complications are minimal. Allergic reactions to pigments are very rare, but sometimes occur. For this reason, a pigment patch test for those with sensitive skin or to topical makeup product, gold , silver, nickel, or hair dyes should be patch tested a few days in advance of the procedure.

What if I don’t like the result?

Carefully choose your practitioner. Compare the work of various artists before choosing. Discuss your expectations and desired outcome, including the shape, style, and color you wish with the artist. Realize that faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Adjustments may be made during touch up, such as pigment discoloration and color correction. Remember that Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if touch ups are not done however keep in mind that this is permanent make up and as such removal is not something that could be done right away.

Is Microblading Painful

The level of discomfort is relatively minor. Some liken it to tweezing two to three hairs at the same time. Usually a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area being worked. Topical anesthetics are safe and may contain lidocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine. Redness and slight swelling in the area is common after the procedure. Often clients liken the feeling to a slight sunburn. Frequently Tylenol is used to deaden any discomfort.

How long does the treatment take

Usually Microblading is done in two sessions. The first session takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and pigment is applied. Four to six weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up, this takes one to two hours.

How long does microblading take to heal?

It takes about ten days for healing. In that time any redness will fade and the initial darkness of the eyebrows will begin to lighten. The color will lighten over about thirty days as it completely sets in.

What are the anticipated results

As soon as the procedure is completed, the brows appear darker and bolder but will fade significantly over a two – four week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done no sooner than 4 weeks after the procedure and no later than 6 weeks, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.

How often can this procedure be performed

A touch up is required no sooner than 4 weeks after the procedure and no later than 6 weeks then a refresher is recommended once a year. For those with oily skin a refresher might be required sooner. It is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment as the retention depends on skin type, age, aftercare, sun exposure, use of certain skin products, medications and other factors.
