What Is Microblading & Powder Filled Brows?
Microblading is a manual method of creating fine, hair like strokes using a thin multi-pinned needle dipped in pigment and bladed into the upper layer of the skin called the Epidermis. This technique allows for the most natural looking eyebrows and is perfect for those who have over tweezed, those who have little to no brows or those who are looking for defined, shapely, worry free brows! This technique may not hold well for those who have oily skin or large pores. It is also not the best option for those with thin or fragile skin.
My Powder Fill brow is NOT your old school tattoo! This new and improved technique that allows for soft and natural looking brows. For this method I use a machine to create a fuller, powdered in look. Powder fill brows do last longer than Microblading (up to 2 years!) and are perfect for ALL skin types. Wake up with makeup!
Is it PERMANENT?
Microblading is "semi-permanent", but still considered a form of permanent make-up. There is no guarantee as to how long it will last but I like to say anywhere from 12-18 months (maybe longer or shorter). The Powder Fill technique will last longer, about 2 years. These time frames vary based on the client’s skin type, lifestyle and how they care for their brows after the procedure.
How do I know if Microblading / powder fill eyebrows are for me?
Anyone who has the desire to fill-in their brows will benefit from either of my techniques. Someone who may be looking for a enhanced brow shape, boost in color or size would also be a great candidate. Microblading adds hair like strokes in addition to your existing hairs, so if you are missing any part of your eyebrow or all of them, Microblading can help give you a more complete look. Powder Fill brows will give you a more filled in but soft look, I love combining the two techniques! If you are not sure book a consultation and we can go over your options!
Does the process hurt?
Before the procedure begins I will apply a topical anesthetic (lidocaine mix). During the process, if you feel discomfort, I am able to reapply the anesthetic cream. All my clients will say that the discomfort is very minimal if any and defintely worth it in the end!
Do you shave my brows before the procedure?
Absolutely not! Microblading adds to the already existing hairs of your natural eyebrows.
How long does the procedure take?
Appointments are booked for 2 hours, in some cases it can take a little longer, so please plan accordingly. I will never rush the process! During the first hour we numb, map and pre-draw your brows, creating the prefect brow shape and size for you. We will then color match a pigment to your skin tone and hair color then I will begin with the process.
Can I Microblade/Powder Fill my brows WHILE PREGNANT?
Microblading is not recommended for anyone pregnant or breast feeding. If you have any questions concerning this please conatct me.
Will I still have to wax and maintain my eyebrows?
Yes, Microblading only adds hair like strokes, it does not keep away the unwanted hairs. At your appointment I will groom your brows according to your new shape I have created for you, but keeping them maintained will be left up to you. I do also offer brow shaping services which you can book to maintain your beautiful new brows.
Also, these techniques do not cover gray hair, you will still need to tint your brows if you would like to cover your grays.
What can I expect?
Microblading and Powder Fill brows are a two-step process. The initial appointment (2hrs + long) and another in 4-6 weeks post procedure. During the healing process the client can loose 30-40% of pigment, leaving the touch up to perfect the brows and allowing the clients new brows to last anywhere from 12months to 2 years. Keep in mind that everyone’s skin is unique and different, results will very and are not guaranteed. Clients that tend to have oily skin, large pores, do not follow my aftercare instructions, are exposed to excessive sun/water or frequently use exfoliating skincare products/treatments may need to have more than one touch up.It very important for you as the client understand the procedure thoroughly and remember Semi-Permanent Makeup is not for everyone!
