Microblading Q & A

What is microblading?

Microblading is an advanced medical aesthetics treatment that improves the appearance of your eyebrows. The process is similar to a tattoo, but far more comfortable, affordable, and less invasive. 

The technique used in microblading is similar to having a tattoo inked. However, instead of a motorized needle, your practitioner uses a special handheld tool equipped with a sterile, fine blade. Pigment is deposited into the skin in fine lines to resemble the individual hairs of your brows.

The iBeauty Clinic team also offers microblading to add color and definition to your lips and as semi-permanent eyeliner. 

You may see microblading advertised at salons, spas, or other locations. It’s essential to work with a medical professional for any aesthetic service that breaches the surface of your skin. 

Even though microblading is safe, your service should be performed in a setting with the highest standards of sanitation and by practitioners who understand how your skin might react. 

Is microblading painful? 

Although pain is always relative, most men and women who come in form microblading do not report significant discomfort. If you’ve had a tattoo, microblading is far easier to manage. A topical numbing cream reduces sensation in your brow area prior to your session. 

Microblading requires no general or local anesthesia. It’s important to cease using retinol products for one week prior to your visit, and you should also stop taking aspirin to reduce the risk of bleeding. 

How can I make my microblading results last?

You’ll receive full post-care instructions before your session, and adhering to these guidelines is a critical part of a successful outcome. You can expect some mild swelling and redness in the days following your session.

You’ll need to avoid getting your brows wet or subjecting them to any friction for the first week. Your body will create a scab over the treatment area to hasten the healing process. Don’t pick at this area, as doing so can remove some of the pigment before it has had a chance to integrate into your skin. 

Your results can last as long as three years. It’s a good idea to schedule a follow-up visit a few weeks after your initial setting. At that time, your practitioner can make any adjustments needed to help you reach your desired visual effect.
