If you are looking into getting your eyebrows microbladed , there are a few thing you should know first, Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo that uses a pen style tool with a head constructed of a row of very fine needles. The process is more of a scratching sensation as apposed to cutting. This process also differs from traditional tattooing because it is done using a natural pigment instead of an ink.
Candi has over 18 years experience shaping eyebrows and over 3 years experience in eyebrow Microblading. She has micrbladed well over 2000 clients in her career and as a sketch artist, has a very light touch. The process is meant to be superficial and only get into the epidermis layers of the skin to avoid scaring by not cutting to deep. Scaring can cause long term problems. For example: Hair does not grow through scar tissue so you can loose hair if it’s not done correctly. It’s also very difficult to microblade over scar tissue, the pigment will fade more quickly resulting in more frequent touch ups. Microblading is a procedure that will benefit you and make day to day life easier. It truelyb is life changing to those who have had it done by a trained professional.
When taken proper care of, Microblading typically lasts up to two years. Most of Candi's clients choose to maintain the process by keeping up with annual (sometimes bi annual touch ups) as opposed to waiting two year for complete fade out. In this case a touch up price is typically offered saving the client time, money and insuring that the eyebrows continue looking fresh. In some cases it can last as long as three years or as little as six to eight months. It is not recommended that people with large poors, very oily skin, red dye #7 allergies or people that are prone to keyloyding get the microblading procedure done.
Proper care includes what I call the 357 rule. 3-5 days with out sweating, most technicians will say 1-2 weeks (which s recommend) however in reality those of us who workout regularly find this very difficult so I suggest giving it 3-5 days if you can. 3 days of sleeping with bandaids covering the ends or tails of the micro bladed brows. The ends are the first thing to fade out and rubbing on your pillow at night while you sleep can cause them to fade out right away. keep the cotton part of the bandaid touching the brow (not the sticky part). 5 days of keeping it covered with either aquaphor, grapeseed oil or another moisturizer (I like aquaphor). Most important is to keep it dry for 7 days. Water will take off the scabs thus taking off the pigment within the scabs. In common sense, anything that would cause a scab to come off should be avoided for 1-2 weeks after the Microblading procedure is completed. For example; to ensure a beautiful lasting Microbladed brow no rubbing, picking, scratching, sweating or water.
Candi will take her time to make you comfortable and explain the process in detail. It’s mandatory for each client to fill out a short medical release form online before we can proceed with any micrblading process. She takes her time to discuss the shape you want and draws them out for approval before she begins the process. You are part of the design process, allowing you to make changes to insure that you walk out with the exact shape that you want. In Candi's mind, less is more! Careful to take a conservative approach on the first visit. Everyone needs a touch up so going larger, thicker or darker on your touch up appointment 4-6 weeks later is best. The first 3 days are the darkest with the scabbing that occurs. The scabbing is subtle and superficial but it will make them appear darker and can be a bit shocking at first. Be patient with the process! The real magic happens after the touch up. Its important to remember that Candi will make you as comfortable as possible, she has a light touch and will numb you throughout the process to insure your level of comfortability. They will fade after the first 5 days and may end up a little patchy. This is normal and exactly why you will need the touch up. These spots or any unevenness will be filled in during the touch up appointment.
