I had resigned to having light, sparse, asymmetrical eyebrows. For special events I would just fill them in with powder and be on my way. Hey, I was raised to be self accepting! Then I married an artist. Don’t get me wrong he is very accepting of my flaws but when he started microblading he convinced me that I would love this transformation of my eyebrows, and I did!
I wanted to ensure that my brows looked natural, both in form and in color. He explained to me that the technique he uses for this semi-permanent eyebrow procedure is all done by hand, adding hair-like strokes verses the more obvious machine assisted ombre effect. The end result is a beautiful new set of brows that are defined, full, symmetrical, and above all… natural looking! Microblading is gaining popularity but our clients still have a lot of questions. I’m writing this blog to provide more information so you can feel confident in scheduling your first appointment.
You will need 3 appointments total in which to achieve your perfect brow:
1. Microblading Consultation & Eyebrow Shaping ($25)- Matthew will tweeze your brows and discuss the direction you wish to go in with the shaping and definition of your eyebrows. He will give you all the information you need to schedule your session with instructions for pre- and post-care. This appointment is mandatory prior to scheduling the Complete Eyebrow Microblading Procedure, but does not guarantee that you are a candidate for Microblading. 30 minutes. Call or schedule online.
2. Complete Eyebrow Microblading Procedure ($600)- Matthew will thoroughly prepare and design your new brows with you before beginning the procedure. Your brows will be meticulously completed during this 3 hour service.
What to expect after your procedure:
-Your skin will be a little red and tender.
-Your skin will be itchy, but don’t touch your brows as they are healing.
-Your skin may get a little flakey, though mine didn’t.
-You will be provided with a sample of an appropriate cleanser in which to wash your brows and an ointment to apply after cleansing. You will be instructed to keep your brows lubricated for 7 to 10 days.
-For approx. 3-5 days after your Complete Eyebrow Microblading Procedure your brows will darken. Don’t worry! They won’t stay that way even if you wish they would.
3. Microblading Followup 4-8 weeks after initial procedure (no charge when scheduled 4-8 weeks after initial procedure, $150 when scheduled 8 weeks-1 year after initial procedure). Following the Complete Eyebrow Microblading Procedure with Matthew, he is happy to offer you a touch up to perfect your brows. You will be thrilled with the transformation!
