WHAT IS MICROBLADING ?
With this method, we create fullness and shape of the eyebrows by applying pigment in the upper layers of the skin. The persistence of the pigment depends on the client’s skin type, their way of life and lasts for up to three years (with corrections). If the pigment is not re-applied, then it fades and leaves the skin without any negative consequences. Because the pigment is applied so close to the surface the hair strokes appear natural looking.
This method is ideal for anyone who is trying to enhance their natural eyebrows or has lost eyebrow hair due to plucking or diseases (alopecia, trigonometric or any other condition that causes hair loss). Especially people who lose their eyebrow hair, as a result of disease, benefit greatly from microblading.
The pigments used in this method are color-matched to client’s original eyebrow color. If the eyebrows are still present, the same color is chosen to blend the corrections. The results are realistic, flawless, fuller-looking eyebrows.
WHY MICROBLADING ?
HOW DOES IT FEEL ?
We often get asked if the treatment is painful, the experience, in the end, depends on the client. Those who are scared tend to feel more pain, whiles others compare it to plucking their eyebrows.
Of course, the specialist can use special numbing creams to ease the procedure and numb the area of skin where the treatment will take place.

After each treatment, each customer is given an “Aftercare kit”, which contains instructions for care, liquid soap and nourishing care ointment.
FIRST DAY: The client will have to wash gently with liquid soap and lubricate the eyebrows with an aftercare ointment, about 2 hours after the procedure is finished. This procedure must be repeated every two hours until going to bed. Before going to bed, the procedure has to be repeated and then a small piece of cling film put over the ointment, which can be fixed with a micro pore tape, plaster or, for example, sports tape. This is important, because we do not want the eyebrows to dry up – if they do, scabs will appear, which will bind a lot of pigment and when they flake off, they pull the pigment out.
THE FOLLOWING 5 DAYS: From the second day onwards, the client washes only the morning and, during the day, apply an aftercare ointment around 5 times a day. Cling film is no longer necessary.
What to avoid?
For the first 10 days, the client should avoid excessive sweating, make-up and creams in the area of eyebrows, facial massage, swimming pool, scratching and sauna.
For the first 30 days, the client should avoid invasive cosmetic procedures, sun exposure, laser treatments, peels and tanning in sunbeds.
Before touching the eyebrow, the client should wash her/his hands carefully to prevent infection.
It is very important to wipe the pigmented area with sterile water, cotton pad and then apply thin layer of ointment on the first day if the lymph appears. The reason is to remove the lymph otherwise your eyebrows will be covered with big scabs. If the client follows the aftercare, she/he will get small scabs – thin layer of crust that will be peeling of itself. It is very important not to scratch eyebrows (client can feel itching) as you can easily loose the pigment together with scratching. If this happen, mostly there is no pigment left and skin can be white or even reddish because of irritation. The iritation will disappear within a few days. Sometimes the client can see redness the same day after the treatment. This is also normal and it disappears in the next few days.
→ Each permanent makeup technique can be done in a very wrong way as everything depends on knowledge, practice, products. The technician has to be properly trained about skin types, deepness, contraindications and many factors. Not all skin types can be microbladed. In case technician microblades oily or problematic skin, healed results will look blurred.
Is it painful?
→ Yes the client can feel discomfort but we numb. Everything depends on the deepness the technician works, pain tolerance, numbing strength. There are two types of numbing – primary and secondary. We always recommend not to use primary anesthesia as the retention of color is better and the skin is not so tough, slippery so it is much easier to do the first pass of treatment without numbing. The first pass duration is about 4-5 minutes, after that we always use secondary anesthesia. So the clients can decide if he/she can handle the pain during the first pass (usually the scale of pain is 5-6). If yes, then we use only secondary numbing. If not, then we use both and client almost doesn’t feel anything.
What tools and products are used for treatment?
→ Disposable or autoclave tool with single use blade which consists of 7-18 needles, certified permanent makeup pigments, soothing solution, sterile cotton pads, ruler for measuring, sterile disposable pigments ring, special pencil for permanent makeup, sterile marker, sterile water and some other equipment to make sure the treatment is done hygienically.
What is the duration of the treatment?
→ The duration depends on technician but usually it is 1.5-2 hours.
What are the treatment steps?
→ Medical health form and agreement
→ Eyebrows shaping
→ Numbing (optional)
→ First pass of treatment
→ Second pass of treatment
→ Pigment absorption
→ Final result discussion and explanation of aftercare
