Microblading is a technique where a manual tool is used to insert pigment into the top 3 layers of the skin. It’s considered semi-permanent because it’s applied to the layers of the skin that regenerate and eventually slough away from the outermost layer of the skin; and for this reason, to keep the colour and design looking fresh, it’s recommended to get touch-ups on the treated area every 6-18 months, depending on the client’s skin type and lifestyle.
Clients will typically have an initial treatment which will heal after 4-6 weeks. A second appointment for a touch-up is suggested around 6 weeks after the initial treatment to fill in any areas that did not retain pigment and to add more depth to the treated area. Sometimes a client’s natural undertones in their skin may have unexpected effects on the inks colour which may also need to be adjusted. These kinds of corrections are normal and are just a part of the semi-permanent makeup application process, as everyone’s skin is different and accepts ink differently.
For best results, it’s important for the client to prepare for their appointment, follow the aftercare instructions, and to not touch or pick at their brows after the treatment. We’re open by appointment.
