What is Microblading?
Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing procedure that fills in thin eyebrow areas to make them look fuller. Unlike a traditional tattoo, which is permanent, the coloring from microblading may last for up to 2 years. This is because microblading uses different tools and a smaller amount of pigment.The color effect will fade over time, so touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired look
What maintenance is required?
Microblading requires 2 appointments: Your initial session & your touch-up 6-8 weeks later. Each session requires meticulous aftercare for typically 10 to 12 days following. You must strictly comply to your aftercare instructions and be able to wash the area 3x a day. You can not get Microblading immediately before a warm-weather vacation where you will be exposed to sun and water during the healing process. If you exercise and sweat excessively, you will need to avoid excessive sweating while healing. Average healing time and aftercare routine is performed for 10-14 days (sometimes sooner).There is no downtime that would affect you being able to go about your normal work schedule.
