If you’re not satisfied with the brows you have, now there’s a very natural option that delivers semi permanent results – microblading, also referred to as semi-permanent makeup or micro-pigmentation. It doesn’t matter if you like them arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature. Unlike the sometimes extreme effects and unnatural results of permanent eyebrow tattooing, microblading is a more natural embroidery-style of individual strokes that look more like real hair. This implanting process of high quality color pigments beneath the surface layer of the dermis by means of tiny, sterile, disposable needles to construct the appearance of hair strokes only to enhance the natural countenance of the face. The pigment is chosen so to match the natural hair or eyebrows’ color. After the healing, the color may become several hues lighter that the natural hairs’ color. Microblading is the hottest technique in semi-permanent makeup because every hair on the eyebrow is drawn individually, which makes the eyebrows look as natural as possible.
Symmetry is achieved through the PhiBrows application. The shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to the golden intersection compass and face morphology. They are measured while the client’s eyes are closed because in that way muscles that can affect eyebrows’ symmetry are relaxed. The shape and outline is penciled and drawn on with the final approval by the client. Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hairs’ growth to achieve a hyper-realistic look.
When a client has very few natural hairs, manual technique is combined with shading or a “powder affect” to achieve realistic results.
Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools, and the pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments). The touchup is done a month after the treatment, because between 10 and 15% of drawn strokes disappear after the first treatment.
The color is extremely dark during the first 5 to 7 days. In about a week, the color loses 40 to 50% of its intensity. If you think your color is too dark, do not try to remove it yourself. Instead, patiently wait 7 days for the color to fade on its own after the healing of the skin.
Color duration primarily depends on how oily the skin is. The oilier the skin, the shorter the color lasts. Sweating and sun exposure also reduce length of time the color lasts. On average, the expected time until a client needs a new color refreshment is between 10 and 12 months. With oily skin, it may be closer to 6 months.
The healing from the microblading procedure is fully completed after 28 days. At this point, we perform a touch up of the pigment to replace any that has been lost. Sometimes more than one corrective touch up is needed.
Proper post-treatment care is extremely important for the treatment’s success. Post procedure instructions will be provided.
Pain during the treatment is relative and varies from person to person. At CNY Healing Arts, our microblading technician applies a topical anesthetic to minimize the pain during the treatment.
