Microblading & Ombré Shading

What is Microblading?

A semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing technique that creates hairlike strokes to fill in sparse or thinning brows in efforts to achieve fuller looking, more beautiful, and symmetrical face-framing eyebrows.
Microblading is a relatively simple and painless procedure. After numbing the area with a topical cream, the permanent makeup artist uses a pen-shaped tool with very fine needles to deposit pigment into the top layers of skin. Short individual strokes are made so that the markings resemble real eyebrow hairs.
The result is a semi-permanent tattoo that blends with and complements existing hairs for a fuller, more defined brow that looks completely natural.

What to expect during a Microblading procedure

The process takes about two hours to complete, with the first hour devoted to drawing an eyebrow shape customized for each face. Afterward, tiny incisions are made with the pigmented pen on the numbed area so only a slight scratching sensation is felt.

Microblading Healing Process

Healing is not always the prettiest process after microblading but there is no real downtime after the procedure. Dry healing is important for the first week, then apply coconut oil or Aquaphor to the area afterwards.
The following weeks will include periods of mild scabbing as well as the natural cycle of the pigment darkening and fading as it settles into the uppermost skin layers. After about a month, any shape modifications or additional strokes can be made at a follow-up appointment.

What is Ombré Shading?

Ombré Shading is the newest trend in eyebrow semi-permanent makeup. It gives a soft shaded brow pencil look. Once healed, it is more natural looking than solid color. It gives great definition and depth to the brows. Whether the client is looking for a light soft shading or show-stopping bold brows, it can be customized according to the client's desire.

What to expect during an Ombré Shading procedure

The process takes about two hours to complete, with the first hour devoted to drawing an eyebrow shape customized for each face. Once the client has approved the shape, we will proceed with shading of the brows with the Ombré Shading machine.

Ombré Shading Healing Process

It is important to keep the skin dry and avoid picking at the scabs/dry skin. The scabs need to shed naturally. It is also recommended to stay out of heavy sun exposure and avoid any facial treatments throughout the healing process. The complete healing process takes about six weeks at which time the true color and density of the brows are clearly revealed.During the follow-up touch-up, adjustments can be made.

What are the benefits to receiving a combination of Microbladed and Ombre Shaded brows?

The combination of both microblading and shading are becoming very popular. This is fantastic for someone who is looking for hair-like texture, definition and density. Clients with very thin and sparse eyebrows, including those who have suffered from hair loss caused by cancer, alopecia, thyroid, et cetera can greatly benefit from this combo to achieve a realistic look. Depending on the circumstances, microblading alone can look too light. By incorporating some shading, the client can get the density as well as hair strokes from microblading. This combo method is also a better option for an individual with oily skin as microblading alone is not best suited for oil skin types. The constant oil production can cause the hair strokes to heal powdery and diffused.

When should one wait for their follow-up/touch-up?

The follow-up touch-up is usually within six to eight weeks and it's included with the initial session. It is highly recommended that the client takes advantage of the touch-up as the healing results cannot be guaranteed. During the touch-up, we can add more definition and/or density and make other adjustments as necessary.

With Microblading and Ombre Shading, it is easy to maintain a consistent look. If too much is plucked, wared or threaded away, it can be hard to get your original eyebrow shape back. Because Microbladed & Ombre Shaded brows are semi-permanent, little maintenance errors are less noticeable since the pigmented template will remain in place.
On the other end of the spectrum, the lack of absolute permanence also allows for trends to be accommodated as they change every few years. It truly is the best of both worlds.
