What is Microblading?
Microblading is a gentle process of implanting pigment into the upper layer of the skin. The procedure is performed on the eyebrows for filling in bare areas, hairloss from over plucking/waxing, camouflaging scars as well as correcting some facial irregularities and is an alternative to removable, daily applied cosmetics. The most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is saving time.
Are there any contradications for having permanent makeup?
Candidates who are seeking permanent makeup and who may be contradicted include people with diabetes, pregnant and lactating women, people with glaucoma, people who are taking blood-thinning medicines (e.g. aspirin), Cortisone, Steroids, Acutane, Retin-A, Renova. People with skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, undiagnosed rashes and blisters, those with allergies to makeup or colors, and those with easily trigged post inflammatory hyperpigmentation are not good candidates.
Is it painful to get permanent make up?
Because PMU is most often performed on areas of the body that are sensitive, the use of anesthetic agent is not uncommon. The sensation of every person is different. One topical anesthetics is a combination of betacain, lidocaine, tetracain. Other topicals include epinephrine, which is vasoconstrictive and helps to minimize swelling. These products are effective, quick acting, and have various blends designed for use before a procedure or application, after the skin has broken. The multiple-application technique works well to make the client comfortable and allows the technician to complete the procedure effectively.
How will it look?
Immediately after the procedure, some swelling may occur, and the color will appear a bit darker than the healed and final result. During the procedure, the color of the pigment is mixed with body fluids and is oxidized. The color stays dark for 4-7 days during the healing process, as the upper layers of epidermis are shed and replaced by new epidermal cells. After the healing process you will be able to see a lighter softer color of the pigment. The final color will appear in about 4 weeks after the procedure, and is usually about 20-30% lighter than the color after procedure.
How long does the procedure take?
The most important part of the first procedure is drawing and creating a shape for the eyebrows, which could take about 45 minutes. The procedure itself takes about 1.5 hours, So the total time is about 2.5-3 hours. The duration of a touch-up procedure 1 hour.
Is a perfecting visit really needed?
During the healing process, the skin is working on the reparing itself. The lymphatic system is trying to push out all external particles to prevent contamination. That explains why the color implanted the first time is not perfect after healing. Also the first time appointment and procedure is like a sketch. All skin is different and can respond differently by healing and keeping the pigments. At the perfecting visit, I review me work and add the finishing corrective touches for color and shape. Prices include one perfecting visit (touch up). However the client should always remember that permanent makeup is almost always a two or more step process.
