MICROBLADING

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading eyebrows is a form of permanent makeup that creates natural, beautiful eyebrows with a handheld microblade. It’s perfect for people who have over plucked or those who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows.
  
Technically, microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. But unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists apply each hair stroke with a handheld microblade. This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hair stroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client’s existing eyebrow hair leaving the results gorgeous and very lifelike.
 
During the initial microblading appointment, the client is profiled and the eyebrows are drawn on with a waterproof pencil, so the artist and client can agree on the look. The artist then microblades the eyebrows. There is some mild scabbing and aftercare required, but your microblading should be completely healed in 30 days.


A touch up session after 4-6 weeks is highly suggested after your initial Microblading session, as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. This allows enough time for the ink in the epidermis to naturally slough off, and the color to settle into your skin. In the touch up appointment, the artist can see how your skin has received the ink and make any necessary adjustments and finishing touches. Pigment color may be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for 1-3 years! 
 
A typical microblading appointment lasts 2 to 3 hours, depending on the artist. A touch up appointment lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the amount of work that needs touching up.


AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS 

The way you care for your new brows after microblding, will have a great impact on the way it heals and ultimately looks.
Do not wet for 7 days. Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.
No rubbing, no picking. Avoid any sort of peeling of dry skin as you might peel out the wrong parts and create bald spots in newly reconstructed brow.
Keep your hair from touching your face for at least 7 days as this could cause infection.
Apply grape seed oil after 7 days of the treatment. Oil is usually applied in the evening before sleep. Apply 2 times per day if needed. It will help to keep treated area moisturized and soft for the rest of recovery period. (you may also use sweet almond, jojoba or coconut oil)
No sun beds, tanning, excessive sweating in the gym, no makeup or anti-aging creams on the brow area for at least 10 days.
Repeat the above instructions after the 30 day touch up session.
​​
WHILE MICROBLADING IS GREAT FOR MOST PEOPLE, THERE ARE SOME INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE INELIGIBLE FOR MICROBLADING. 
 
Those prone to keloids or post-inflammatory hypopigmentation. Unfortunately, since microblading punctures the skin as we add ink, we cannot work with clients with these conditions.

If you have a transmittable blood disease such as HIV or Hepatitis. Again, microblading artists cut the skin so it is our policy not to work with these conditions.

If you’ve had Juvederm or other fillers in that area. Depending on the timing, we recommend to get microblading first! Otherwise, check with your doctor. Many artists requirey wait 8-12 months from last procedure.

Patients undergoing chemotherapy. Although microblading is great for restoring eyebrows, we would require a doctor’s note in order to perform the procedure for anyone undergoing chemotherapy.

If you have any kind of skin condition on or near your eyebrows. This includes eczema, shingles, rashes, or anything else near eyebrows.

Microblading is for adults only! We do not recommend microblading for anyone under the age of 18. It is our policy at Microblading LA not to work with children, even with a consent form.

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding. It is not recommended you get microblading durning pregnancnt or while breastfeeding. Pigments used have tiny traces of iron oxide and nickel in them. The mature adult kidneys can easily excrete this while barely detecting their minute presence. However, there is very little research or known information as to how this could affect a developing fetus or infant.
