Microblading is a technique that creates very fine lines or strokes to replicate the look of real hair in the brow area. The realistic looking hair strokes are manually applied with a single use hand tool. The size and thickness of the blades can determine how the hair stroke will look. For a client with excessively oily skin, this technique will result in a soft powder stroke. Dry skin types tend to heal with more crisp defined results.
If you are a client who does not normally fill in their brows with makeup and you are looking for a very natural look, this technique is great. If you are used to filling in your brows, Combination Brows may be better suited for you as microblading may not be enough.
Eyebrows can make the most dramatic difference to the basic symmetry and enhancement of the face as a whole. Why not frame your eyes with instantly perfect brows that won't wash away?
Microblading is ideal for normal to dry skin types.
MICROPIGMENTATION IS NOT FOR CLIENTS WHO ARE:
EYEBROW AFTER CARE
After care is crucial, it is very important to follow these instructions for the full 10 day healing period to ensure proper healing and color retention. Results will vary for all individuals and we can not guarantee your results.
WHAT TO EXPECT
THINGS NOT TO DO
Allow your brows a MINIMUM of 4 weeks to heal before booking a touch up. This gives you the time to decide if you do or do not need a touch up appointment. It's takes a full 4 weeks for the colour to settle.
It is your responsibility to book your touch up appointments. Please keep the high demand in mind. If your tattoo comes back too faded additional charges may apply.
LONG TERM CARE
THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF RESULTS as everyone’s result will vary due to skin type, lifestyle and the initial 10 day care and longterm care of your brow tattoo.
Micropigmentation or Permanent Makeup is a term used to describe facial cosmetic tattooing. Color pigments are placed just below the dermis of the skin for the purpose of creating definition to enhance the individual’s natural beauty. This service is custom designed for each individual client according to their face shape, skin tone, eye color, hair color and most importantly, skin type. Semi-permanent make up as the name implies requires periodical maintenance to ensure the freshness of the look.
Do you use clean needles?
Every client has a new, single use needle. At the beginning of the treatment you can observe the needles being taken out of a sterile pre-packed casing. On completion of the treatment, the needles are placed into a sharps container and then disposed of correctly. Regina uses Beauty Angels microblades that are one time use disposable blades.
Regina is fully licensed, certified, insured, and has also been certified in Blood Borne Pathogens.
Is it Painful?
Everybody has a different level of pain tolerance but most clients are completely comfortable and relaxed during the appointment. You may feel slight discomfort, but the results will far outweigh this temporary discomfort. You may take TYLENOL prior to the appointment but NOT ASPIRIN. A highly effective numbing solution is applied before and during the treatment to keep you feeling as comfortable as possible. Clients have compared the sensation to tweezing or threading your eyebrows. (I have even had a few clients fall asleep during the procedure)
Is it safe if I am pregnant?
Permanent Cosmetics are not safe for women who are pregnant or nursing. Pregnancy can cause undesirable results due to hormonal changes in the body.
How long does it last?
Many different factors play a role in the lifespan of the implanted pigment. Clients skin type plays the biggest role in longevity and the general outcome of the procedure. Oily Skin types hair strokes may heal softer with a powder finish while drier skin types may heal more crips and defined. Darker pigments tend to last longer. Proper UVA/UVB protection will prevent color from fading as quickly when in sunny climates.
Aggressive skin treatments such as laser, chemical peel, dermabrasion etc. do not get along with micropigmentation.
How long is the appointment?
Appointments are booked on a 2-4 hour basis, allowing for thorough consultation and treatment. Tattooing time varies for each treatment.
What is the appointment like?
We begin by mapping out your new brow design with makeup and use various measuring devices to create ideal symmetry between both eyebrows. We can also test colour choice against your skin so you can see it prior to the Micropigmentation. A numbing solution is used during the procedure to ensure the appointment is as comfortable as possible for the client. The consultation is extremely interactive to help keep client’s nerves at rest. My clients have access to a mirror throughout the entire appointment to check in and watch the process whenever they would like to. Healing is a simple process, as I provide clients’ with a kit that includes a cleanser and after care ointment.
Will I need a touch up after my initial appointment? How long will my new brows last?
Most clients require 2 sessions to have their brows perfected. Touch up appointments can be made 4 weeks after your initial appointment with the online booking system. Clients with fuller brows may not need a touchup. Annual touchups are highly recommended to maintain fresh looking results.
Your brow tattoo can last 1-3 years depending on sun exposure, lifestyle and skin type. Oily skin types tend to fade faster than dry skin types.
