The Eyes Have It! Microblading is now at Vagotis Cosmetic Surgery + Skin Center. (Coming May 2018)
We are excited to introduce you to Microblading – an incredibly natural-looking option for flawless brows. Eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature, framing your eyes and providing the perfect finishing touch to your look.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hairstroke technique. 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. There is no “spilling” under the skin.
The pigments used in this method have been 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 absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
Who is it for?
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, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows.
How long will the procedure take?
The initial procedure will take about 2 hours, but can take up to 3 hours to ensure that each client is given the perfect shape and strokes. The art of eyebrow permanent make-up is a process; a follow-up appointment is necessary 30-60 days after the initial treatment to perfect your brows.
How Long Will it Last?
The results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
Will it hurt?
A topical numbing agent can be used to reduce discomfort if needed, but is preferred to not use it as it can affect the crispness of the lines. Most patients are ok with the level of pain as it is similar to scratching.
