Licensed/Certified Microblade Technician
Hi, all! I want to share with you a bit about myself and microblading. I am certified by the American Institute of Intradermal Cosmetics, insured, and licensed in the state of Washington to practice intradermal cosmetics. I've built my business around making brows beautiful and convenient just for you! You may be wondering what is microblading? Microblading is a technique of applying hair-like strokes using a manual tool to implant pigment into the skin. It feels like a mild scratch. I use topical anesthetics so there is little to no pain. I also prefer to use all natural pigments that do not contain iron oxide so your brows should not fade to blue, peach, or green. The whole procedure can be anywhere from 1 hour to just under 2 hours. Please keep in mind that some skins don't hold pigments well and a touch up will be necessary. Your new brows can last up to 3 years. After your procedure, I will walk you through proper care for the quality and longevity of your brows using an organic aftercare! Please feel free to contact me if you have any pressing questions or would like to schedule! Also be sure to inquire about any specials or new services.
Is microblading painful?
Not really! I numb before and during. It might be slightly uncomfortable, you may notice some nose and eye action similar to allergies but very mildly. It depends on you! Some fall asleep in the chair and others find the scratching sound more obnoxious than anything.
When is the best time?
If you are preparing for a special event, think at least 2 weeks in advance so you aren't attending during an active healing point (typically flaking present). Ideally, if you have a big event, it might be wise to consider 7 to 10 weeks prior (at a minimum) to allow for both appointments and full healing potential.
What's the recovery like?
I've got a great video on this! I consider the first 2 weeks to be active healing and the next 3 to be passive healing. During the active part, brows will appear dark at first and then may flake around days 7-12. During the passive part, brows may appear light but by the completion of 5 weeks you color should be fully present.
Are there different looks?
Yes! There's a page for Microblading pictures showing just the look of strokes, which is the most natural, and a page for Ombre brows showing a combination of strokes with shading. You may even elect to have fully shaded brows (highly recommended for oily skin types).
