Many women have thin or missing eyebrows for various reasons. Some women have lost their brows due to over-tweezing. Some are thin due to illness, or hereditary reasons. What to do? As Makeup Artists, we can obviously help you create a daily look with brow powders and brow tinting. However, if you’re looking for something that doesn’t need daily application, Microblading may be for you.
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo to fill in thin or missing eyebrows.With proper after-care, Microblading can last up to 2-3 years, and longer with yearly touch-ups.
The actual process of Microblading occurs when a manual tool is used to lightly cut pigment into the skin. This results in the look of “individual hairs” that fill in missing, or thin brows.
These side effects are rare* but could include the following:
*this information is not here to scare you, only to better inform you.
Infection - Whenever the skin is open there is a risk of infection. After the procedure we will supply you with a healing ointment to take home. If you follow the aftercare instructions the risk of infection is minimal.
Scarring - Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replace normal skin after injury. The tattoo is an injury to your skin.
Hyperpigmentation - is a darkening of the skin caused by increased melanin. Injury to the skin may cause Hyperpigmentation
Hypopigmentation - is scatting hat turns lighter that the skin around it.
Color Migration – When the pigment moves outside the area where it is implanted
Allergic Reaction – An allergic reaction occurs when the skin senses a foreign body, in this case the pigment, and overreacts by rejecting it. Allergic reaction could happen immediately after a procedure or later if your body decides to respond to the foreign substance. The risk of an allergic reaction is minimal and you are welcome to come in for a skin test prior to your procedure.
Milia – White bumps also called white heads, form when the skin cells become trapped and do no exfoliate naturally.
Cold Sores – Watery blisters on the lip usually triggered by stress, injury or sun exposure. Although you cannot cure or prevent a cold sore from occurring you can take steps to reduce the risk and limit the duration of an outbreak with medication. Call your doctor or dentist and ask about anti-viral medication. Outbreaks are rare with microblading and are more likely to occur with other permanent/ semi-permanent makeup procedures.
Pain or Discomfort – Topical anesthetics will be applied throughout the procedure to control the pain although each person has a different level of pain tolerance. *If you are allergic to topical anesthetics they will not be used in your procedure.
Unlike Tattoos Microblading uses a different type of Ink which makes the service semi-permanent. The Ink in the skin may still last for 3 years or more depending on your skin. Microblading requires a touchup about once a year to maintain the look.
Risks, Effects, and Permanence: A tattoo is a permanent mark or design made on skin with pigments that are inserted by needles piercing the top layer of the skin repeatedly. A piercing is the insertion of jewelry into a permanent opening made in a part of the body with a needle. Branding involves applying extreme heat to the skin in order to create a permanent, burned image or pattern. Body art procedures may cause slight bleeding and pain. Because body art procedures breach the skin, infections and other complications are possible. In some people, tattoo pigments and piercing jewelry can cause allergic skin reactions. Infections can occur from use of unsterile equipment or not following proper aftercare. A procedure done with contaminated equipment may cause the contraction of various blood borne diseases such as hepatitis B, and HIV. Other skin problems such as granulomas (nodules that may form around material the body perceives to be foreign) or keloids (raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue) can occur for certain people. Other risks of piercings include oral complications such as chipping or cracking teeth and interference with chewing and swallowing with tongue piercings and tearing or trauma if body jewelry becomes caught and torn out. Tattoos can cause complications with MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) procedures such as an interference with the image and swelling or burning after the MRI. Tattoos may be able to be removed with laser technology, but removing a tattoo usually involves several painful and expensive treatments and complete removal without scarring may not be possible.
I have read the information form and understand its contents. I understand there are risk involved with the application of cosmetic tattoos.
