IT IS ADVICE NOT TO UNDERGO MICROBLADING IF YOU FALL INTO ANY OF THE CATEGORY BELOW DUE TO INCREASED RISK FOR INFECTION AND/OR POOR HEALING. PLEASE CONSULT WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN. IN SOME CASES, A GENERAL DOCTOR’S NOTE IS REQUIRED TO CONFIRM ELIGIBILITY:
It usually takes 2 appointments for desired results. The first appointment is about structure, design, and building hair-strokes. The second appointment, between 30 – 60 days later, is to see how your skin takes the pigment and to go over any faded strokes to perfect your result even more.
The first step is brow mapping where a caliper will be used to measure out 6 points on the brows according to your natural facial features. The goal is to make your brows more symmetrical and balanced. Once the pencil outline is done, you will get to see your new shape and approve to the design before your artist begins the microblading process. The artist will perform the first pass of hair-strokes on the brows without any numbing to ensure the best color retention and crisp strokes. After the first pass, the artist will use Ultra Duration numbing liquid for the rest of the procedure to help ease the discomfort.
Pre-Numbing prior to the first pass of microblading has been shown to decrease color retention and crispness in strokes, therefore Six Sigma Brows do not typically numb prior to procedure. However, you can choose to add Pre-Numbing with the understanding that it has the potential to affect retention.
Once the 1st session is done, you will come back for the perfecting session between 30 – 60 days from initial appointment. The goal of this second appointment is to go over any faded strokes and to make any necessary adjustments to achieve more symmetry and fullness to complete the brows.
Immediately following your procedure, your new brows will appear to be darker, bolder in color and shape, and more sharply defined. You may feel that your brows are too dark and thick. Over the next 2-3 days, your brows will appear even darker and thicker as the ink on the surface dried up and flakes begin to form. Let the flakes naturally fall off. Do not pick or peel. It may take up to 14 days for flaking of the brows to be over. Following the aftercare steps will decrease the flaking process (it’s normal to not get them at all!). Your brows will become lighter in color, thinner in shape and more natural looking as healing progresses. Patience is key!
You may NOT get the area wet or apply any kind of products (except for the recommended ointment) for at least 10 days after procedure. NO makeup on the area for at least 2 weeks. NO direct sun exposure until your brows are fully healed after at least 30 days (it is recommended to use sunscreen to protect them).
