Microblading (Eyebrow Embroidery)
Micoblading semi perment answer to your overplucked, sparse, thinning eyebrows. Microblading is a revolutionary method of hair strokes by inserting small amounts of pigment into the superfitial part of the skin.
Our goal is to give you the most natural shaped brows. We aim to achieve this goal by enhancing your brows with the utmost level of comfort and safety for every client.
Is Microblading Painful?
Most of our clients report little or no pain. Some clients have literally slept through it! We leave a topical anesthetic on the eyebrow area for 20 minutes before we begin the process, so this leaves most clients numb during the procedure.
Microblading During Menstrual Cycle / Pregnancy:
We do not perform microblading during menstrual cycle, pregnancy or while breastfeeding. This is the policy for most permanent makeup artists if you research online. In truth, there is very little scientific medical research on tattoo ink and pregnancy, nor is there any research on the ink we use.
Who Should Avoid Microblading?
While microblading is great for most people, there are some people 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 may request a note from your doctor first.
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.
Children. Microblading is for adults only! We do not recommend microblading for anyone under the age of 18. It is our policy at LRB will not work with children, even with a consent form.
It is very important that you do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 7-10 days after your procedure.
Make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment (Tattoo Goo or Coconut Oil) with a cotton swab. This can be done 1-2 a day, but be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself. Please continue to apply the ointment for
The following must be avoided during all 14 days post-microblading procedure:
Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
Sun tanning or salon tanning
UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles
Touching of the eyebrow area except for when rinsing and applying the post-care cream with a cotton swab
Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.
Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.
If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact LRB immediately, to discuss further instructions.
Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.
What to Expect During and After Your Microblading Session:
Entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new temporary eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day.
Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original. This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, customer develop bald spots or lose original hair stroke which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s is the reason why most customers need a touchup after 6 weeks.
