Everything You Need to Know About Eyebrow Microblading
"Eyebrows are a key feature on everyone’s face. Not only do they shape your face, but they also protect your eyes to keep your vision clear. Eyebrows are also important in nonverbal communication and help express emotions such as shock or anger. Although we are all blessed with eyebrows of different colors and shapes, today there are a handful of beauty treatments to shape, tint, and fill in missing gaps."
Microblading is the most natural, new and safe method of permanent makeup. It is a semi-permanent treatment lasting around 1-1,5 year compared to conventional tattooing which is permanent. The blades used in this method are very fine in order to create a natural looking hair-like strokes. The drawn strokes follows the shape and thickness of original hair-strokes. The pigments used in this method are formulated to match your original eyebrow color. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. If you simply are not happy with your eyebrows you can benefit greatly with Microblading. It’s also a wonderful solution if you have previously over tweezed your brows and can’t grow them back or are suffering from alopecia or any other condition that causes hair loss. . Microblading is a multiple-step appointment process. The results last from 11 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure as well as how well client cares for the treated area. Sometimes it is needs a Touch-Up in 8-12 weeks after the initial procedure to perfect the shape, color, and density of the brows. Some clients choose to have additional Touch-Ups in the future to achieve desired results.
Please be prepared that eyebrow color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper within the first few days of the procedure, but fade significantly (approximately 30-50%) over the healing period.
⦁ Do not work out 24 hours before procedure.
⦁ No alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before procedure.
⦁ Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.
⦁ Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.
⦁ No brow waxing, tinting, microdermabrasion or chemical peels one week before.
⦁ Discontinue Retin-A 4 Weeks Prior.
⦁ Do not use AHA skincare products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure.
⦁ No Botox around the brow area 2 weeks prior.
⦁ Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
⦁ Do not touch brows or surrounding area for 24 hours.
⦁ After 24 hours keep the brow area clean by using a gentle fragrance-free cleanser and water with freshly washed hands morning and night (2x/day). Do not use a washcloth or sponge and clean area by moving in the direction of the hair growth.
⦁ Allow eyebrows to air dry before applying a thin layer of Primp's special aftercare serum.
⦁ Apply a very thin layer of the aftercare serum given (for the amount of days recommended by your artist) with freshly washed hands or a Q tip.
⦁ DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss.
⦁ Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, pool (chlorine is irritating), sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 3 weeks.
⦁ Avoid physical effort, gym and any other activity that may cause excessive sweating for at least 5 and up to 14 days.
⦁ Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
⦁ NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for two weeks.
⦁ NO Botox around the brow area for two weeks after.
⦁ NO facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
⦁ After 14 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading. (At least SPF 30, if not 50)
⦁ Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
⦁ Avoid Retin-A close to brow area.
Please note: Immediately following your procedure, the treated area will appear to be anywhere from 20-40% darker and bolder in color and 15% thicker. This can last up to 10 days after the treatment while the initial healing process takes place (This is very common for all permanent cosmetic procedures). The treated area may feel a bit like sunburn afterwards but there should be minimal discomfort. During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own.
The complete healing process takes about 6-8 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your new brows will soften and lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating. Wait at least 6 weeks to see the true color, as it seems to take on new strength, and it is only after 6-8 weeks that your touch-up/adjustment can be done (which is INCLUDED in the initial cost).
