Microblading

WHAT WE DO

The “Natural” Brow Tattooing method! Hairline Strokes give a softer, more natural approach to permanent makeup. Microblading is a rather new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, in comparison to conventional tattooing. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows.

The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows. The pigments used in this method are formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is sometimes recommended to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment. The results can last anywhere from 10 to 16 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure and how well client cares for the treated area. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.

Pre-Procedural Advice

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Organic Tans Microblading procedure normally requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results, client is required to to return for at least one perfecting treatment service session which is included in the initial service cost. This treatment service is scheduled immediately after the first treatment, and should take place 3-6 weeks after the initial procedure.

To ensure best results, make sure your health is in good condition. Get enough rest, & eat well prior to procedure. No waxing/threading for 72 hours before the procedure as the pores would be open and pigment can enter those areas.

24 hours before and after your Microblading appointment:
Avoid alcohol, aspirin and any other related blood thinners (Unless instructed by your physician).

One week before:
Stop taking the following supplements; Vitamin E, B6, Omega 3, Gingko Biloba, & St. John’s Wort) as they contribute to thinning the blood and may affect anesthetic efficacy. You may resume taking your vitamins 72 hours after.

On the day of your appointment:
Avoid caffeine and exercise. Wash your hair in the morning as you will need to avoid the shower for several days. Baths are recommended. DO NOT bring in pictures of celebrities as examples of exact work you would like to get done. Microblading requires taking measurements that are unique to each facial shape and client need. Unless a stencil of the exact brow shape is provided, we will not view or entertain celebrity pictures.

Pigments during Microblading are not implanted as deep into the skin as a traditional tattoo, or even micropigmentation which utilizes an electric permanent makeup device. This allows for healed results of very fine, thin, and crisp hair lines, however, results do not last as long as traditional methods. A color boost is required usually between 12-18 months. A touch-up may be required at 12 months or sooner for oily-skinned clients, those who tan often, or or often expose brow area to certain chemicals (facial peels, chlorine, anti-aging products, etc.)

* Pigment retention varies depending on skin type, age, aftercare, immune system, medications, certain chemicals, and the type of pigment used.


 

Post Procedure Tips

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Please Read the Following Statements Carefully

Microblading is a way of cosmetic tattooing. Perfecting visits may be required. A healing period of 6 weeks is required before touch up procedure can be performed. On a rare occasion, the pigment may migrate under the skin. The microblading procedure may be slightly uncomfortable. The pigments will fade. Immediately after the procedure, the pigment can appear 30-50% darker than the desired result. Although extremely rare, there might be an immediate or delayed allergic reaction to pigment. A negative patch test result does not guarantee that you will not develop an allergic reaction after the full procedure. Permanent cosmetics cannot be applied to pregnant women or nursing mothers. Permanent cosmetics cannot be applied to any person under the age of 18. Infections can occur if aftercare instructions are not followed correctly. There may be swelling and redness following the procedure. You may experience minor bleeding. If you have an MRI scan within 3 months after the procedure, you should notify / discuss with your doctor. Possible scarring may occur, but is extremely rare.

What Happens If It Doesn’t Go According To Plan

AND WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

I caught an infection. Help!

When it comes to permanent cosmetics, the treatment breaks the skin in order to get the pigment (the colour) in there to give you beautiful brows, eyes or lips. However, if you’re not careful, you can catch an infection. If you go to a reputable permanent makeup artist, it’s highly unlikely you’ll come up against any infections from being in their salon. We ensure infection control by making sure your artist is wearing gloves and a facemask during treatment. Infections with permanent makeup usually happen once you’ve left the salon. We can’t stress enough how important it is to follow the aftercare instructions from the artist. Here are our top tips: Do NOT scratch the treatment area. No matter how itchy it is, or how tempting it is to pick at it, you must let it heal. The area can be tender and flaky for 2-5 days after the treatment. If you pick at the area, you can open up the wound and catch infections.

You should be avoiding harsh face cleansers and getting water on the treatment area for at least a week. Switch to a gentle cleanser during the healing period.

Be careful with your hair, stray hairs and styling products can irritate the area and lead to damage. This is where most infections can come from.

What do I do next?

If you think you think your treatment is infected, avoid touching it and irritating it further firstly. If you’ve tried a topical over-the-counter ointment and you’re still experiencing discomfort call a physician.

If you’re really worried about the infection, seek medical advice. It’s best to look after yourself and treat the infection as early on as possible. The longer you leave it, the worse it can get! Many clients are often scared to seek help as they have scratched the treatment leading to infection. Remember – your health comes first. There’s nothing a perfecting appointment can’t address..
