What is microblading?
Microblading is a relatively new eyebrow enhancement technique; this non-invasive treatment creates tiny lines that look like individual hairs in order to fill out or reshape the eyebrows.*
Is microblading the same as permanent makeup/tattoos?
Microblading uses a hand-held tattoo pen with a unique blade to deposit dye into the second dermal layer of the skin; creating very fine, precise strokes that mimic natural eyebrow hair. It is considered a semi-permanent tattoo, delivering very natural and subtle results.
Am I a good candidate for microblading?
Virtually anyone can benefit from microblading, but there are some skin conditions that can hinder your results. Skin conditions that pose greater complications include
- Keratosis pilaris
- Chronic acne
- Chronically oily skin
Additionally, those with sensitive skin are prone to experience trauma and bleed easily during microblading. It is important to let our staff know if you have had previous permanent makeup (eyebrows) as this can affect your outcomes.
Are there any requirements for microblading?
Signature Medspa by Dr. Rogers requires all patients interested in eyebrow microblading to receive a complimentary consultation to determine whether or not they are a good candidate for microblading. A deposit is required to schedule the initial treatment. A second, touch-up, treatment is required 6-8 weeks following the initial treatment and is included in the cost of the procedure.
If you have used Accutane, Retin-A, or other Vitamin A products, it is important to stop using these products at least one month before your microblading session. It is equally important to discontinue the use of growth serums, such as RapidBrow, and limit your sun exposure to avoid the risk of sunburn.
How long will results last?
Because the pigment is placed more superficially in the skin, results will last between 6 months to one year.* Many patients choose to follow up once a year after their initial sessions for touch-up and maintenance.
Who performs the treatment?
Our microblading specialists have over 22 years of combined experience in permanent makeup and eyebrow microblading. They have received extensive training in permanent cosmetic enhancements with experts such as world renowned makeup artist Sally Hayes.*
