MICROBLADING BEFORE & AFTER CARE


MICROBLADING: Skin Healing, Before & After Care 



After the initial visit takes place, a second visit is required. Usually done within 4-8 weeks this process is less invasive.

Mild swelling and redness will reduce within an hour of the procedure with no possibility of permanent scarring.

Initially during the healing process, the brows will appear dark and distinct. However, after 7-10 days the pigment will fade and become less defined. After 30 days, the pigment fades about 30-40%. There is no required down time.

Before Care

Avoid plucking or waxing brows. The technician will shape the brows based on measurements taken at the beginning of the procedure. Do not use exfoliators up to 72 hours before appointment. Products containing glycolic acid, Retin-A, or alpha hydroxy acids may cause inflammation of the skin.  DISCONTINUE USE OF DRINKING ALCOHOL, ASPIRIN, BLOOD THINNERS AND RETINOL 1 WEEK BEFORE APPOINTMENT. AVOID SCHEDULING APPOINTMENT DURING THE CLIENT’S MENSTRAL CYCLE.

After Care

Do not wet brows for 7 days. Protect healing brows from ALL FORMS OF MOISTURE whenever possible. Abstain from heavy workouts or aggressive face washing. Gently wash face without touching the brow area. Only clean treated area with alcohol wipes.

Do not rub or pick the treated area. The area may feel itchy during the healing period; it is important NOT TO RUB THE AREA to prevent infection. Picking the treated area is also known to diminish the appearance of the pigment and will cause the brow to appear bald.
Apply grapeseed oil after 7 days of treatment. Other oils that can be used are almond, coconut, or jojoba oils. DO NOT USE PETROLEUM JELLY, as it prevents the skin from healing properly due to its thickness.
Note: Even with proper after care, a client may still experience fading or loss of pigment due to the skin’s natural healing process. This is normal and results may vary depending on the client’s skin regeneration. Client’s results after healing depend solely on how their skin heals and absorption of the pigment. Pigment retention is based on health, age, skin type (pore size, elasticity, thickness etc.), brow keratosis, medications used, and after care. Most clients require a touch up after 30 days.
Once the desired look has been achieved a color enhancement is required after 18-24 months. A touch up may also be required after 12 months for clients who tan, have oily skin, use facial peels or anti-aging products. Chlorine, retinol and peroxide are known to drastically fade the pigment.

INTRO TO MICROBLADING

INTRO TO MICROBLADING

Microblading, also referred to as eyebrow embroidery, feathering, etching, or shading, is a semi-permanent makeup technique that has been gaining popularity worldwide since the early 2000’s. Originally designed to help post-chemotherapy patients, microblading has become one of the most sought-after beauty procedures.  Like tattooing, a small (micro) blade is used to deposit pigment underneath the epidermis.

 The microblade has 7-18 microneedles when applied give the appearance of hair-like strokes.  Unlike a traditional tattoo, the pigment or color is impacted closer to skin’s surface using a microblading pen instead of a tattooing machine.

The microblading method is perfect for anyone who wants to enhance the appearance of their eyebrows. Regardless of the amount of existing natural hair, the hair-like strokes look astoundingly real.

Ideal microblading candidates are people who suffer from trigonometrical, alopecia, other hair-loss disorders or simply for someone who desires to alter the appearance of their natural brows.

Pigments used are totally different from tattoo ink, as they are specifically formulated to match the client’s natural brow color. Certain pigments have different undertones that are complementary to different skin tones.  

The realistic results last 1-3 years and are unapparelled, making microblading the number eyebrow solution.

Lash Extension and Lice Rumor:

There has been a picture circulating online that allegedly depicts the effects of Lice on Lash Extensions. It was brought to my attention by one of our loyal clients. We educate our clients, and she already knew, just how false and misleading the picture is. She wanted us to publicly address, debunk and put this rumor to rest!

FALSE!
This Rumor  began with someone selling 3D Fiber Lash Mascara, trying to market their product, by slamming our profession. We have nothing against using ANY kind of mascara, but as for ourselves  and our clients, we wear Lash Extension... that are thoroughly cleaned daily! They are applied with microfiber tip brushes that remove the smallest particles BEFORE they are applied! No one at home is doing that before applying mascara. And you barely can get it off after. Let's debunk this one!

REAL FACTS:
Lice can spread on eyelashes or ANY hair on the body.The rare condition is known as pediculosis ciliari. THERE HAVE BEEN NO REPORTED CASES OF PEDICULOSIS CILIARI RELATED TO WEARING EYELASH EXTENSIONS...EVER!

Oh, and about the pictures above, NONE of those people are wearing eyelash extensions. If you look up the origin of the pictures on Google, you'll also find that the are not related to lash extensions or Pediculosis Ciliari. You all know that one picture is a stye.

Reintroducing Brow Extensions

So, we haven't been blogging recently, but that will change as we introduce new topics, supplies and other tidbits. We've been working extremely hard to bring you the most exclusive products and information. Forgive us for the sebatical, but let's get back to it.

Brow Extensions are the hottest thing! They've been out for awhile, but the reception has been slow. We often get calls from around the country for inquiries, so the demand is there. But EDUCATING the client is the best thing!

We currently hold workshops that show our attendees the process. So what is the process?

We apply one synthetic hair fiber directly to the gaps or desired location on the clients brow, to create a full or more complete look. And the results are truly amazing!

There are tons of options for brow fulfilment, but this service is temporary lasting 1-3 weeks. If you want tattooed brows, this isn't for you. This is for people that need a temporary solution. Excellent for post chemotherapy patients or if someone waxed off your brows!

Take a look at our most recent brow extensions. Feel free to email us about training, supplies or other questions. Stay tuned... we'll be back with more!

Fall Product Review (Sugar Lash Pro, Blink Mink)

As the lash extension industry grows, there are an abundance of product lines to choose from. By releasing product reviews, we hope to make the buying process easier, by giving our opinions on great products. We have not been paid or given free products in exchange for reviews. This fall we will be reviewing Sugar Lash Pro and Blink Mink.

Sugar Lash Pro is a high quality line that features faux mink and silk synthetic product lines. The carry a multitude of things from adhesives, tools, lash extensions, to blueprints for the lash bed upholstery. They carry a variety of colors in lash extensions and the proper diameter sizes for volume lashes. Their products can be directly ordered from their site SugarLashPro.com. We purchase the faux mink bottom lashes and the faux mink 0.07mm C-curl lash extensions.
 The taper and texture of the lashes we perfect! They were delivered on time and we believe this is the best product we've used so far for volume lashes and bottom lashes.

Blink has an excellent line of adhesives and different lash curls and lengths. It can be purchased from its direct site iLashstore.com or from Amazon.com. We purchase the faux mink C-curl lash extensions in 11mm, 13mm, 15mm and 17mm as well as the Blink Plus lash adhesive. The lash extension we also of high quality and the adhesive was quick drying, low fume, and excellent for both traditional and volume lash extensions.

We using any product we are worried if our money was well spent, and in the case of using Blink and Sugar Lash Pro we are OVERLY SATISFIED!
