What is Microblading?
Microblading is a technique performed by manually depositing cosmetic pigment under the top layer of the skin using a microblade. This microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that create beautiful, natural, subtle looking brows that accurately replicate hair.
This semi-permanent tattoo method is perfectly suitable if the client wants to correct current eyebrow shape, add volume to brows or fill in sparse areas. It is also suitable for clients with no eyebrow hairs, as I will create new beautiful, naturally looking brows. My goal is to create eyebrows that no one would be able to tell has undergone the semi-permanent treatment.
What is the Golden Ratio?
The Golden Ratio φ 1.618 also known as Phi is a proportion that appears in the patterns and proportions in every living form. Many key features of the human face can embody many golden ratios, leading to our perceptions of beauty.
The method of microblading I use is developed to conform to the “Phi” ratio and is calculated according to the morphology of the face and the golden mean, the number φ (1.618) and helps in mapping out facial contour by designing the shape that compliments all facial features. With the help of the golden intersection eyebrow compass and the Phi mobile application I am able to ensure the ultimate symmetry and shape.
How long does it last?
Is it painful?
How long is the appointment?
Typically the appointment takes 3 hours and most of the time is spent measuring and going over the shape and color before the actual procedure begins.
Is it safe?
My clients health and safety come first, and that’s why I only use the highest quality and highest standard pigment available. They are 100% vegan, never tested on animals and FREE of heavy metals that are used in most semi-permanent brands.
All of the pigments used are cosmetic grade, meaning that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. The pigments used are exclusively made for microblading and allow for an easy application with excellent color retention. All hand tools are single-use, come in a sterilized package, and disposed of after each client.
What is the recovery time?
What Do I Need To Do To Prepare For My Appointment?
• Do NOT drink alcohol or coffee or any caffeinated drinks before the procedure (at least 24hrs for alcohol)
• Do NOT take Advil or other blood thinners such a Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hours prior to your procedure. Extra strength Tylenol can be taken if you have low pain tolerance.
• If you have recently tanned this will affect the outcome of the healed color.
• If you’ve had laser removal of previous work done by someone else, the treated area has now more scar tissue and can affect the outcome of the result. More treatments may be necessary to have the skin take the color.
• Botox should be done 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the procedure.
• Avoid exercising the day of procedure as this will open up the pores.
• Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
• No waxing, threading or tinting 3 days before
• Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color and more sharply defined. Over the next 2 days it will appear even darker and thicker as scabs begin to form. You must let the scabs naturally flake off bit by bit. It will take up to 14 days for scabbing to be over.
• You may NOT get the area wet for too long or apply any kind of products (except what I provide for your aftercare) for at least 10 days after. NO makeup on the area for 2 weeks.
