Microblading in Richmond hill
What is Microblading
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique used to create the illusion of fuller, more evenly shaped eyebrows. In this procedure, pigment is implanted into the skin using a fine blade; it is meant to mimic the look of natural-looking hair.
Microblading can be a great option for those who want to enhance their appearance without having to commit to permanent makeup. The results are semi-permanent and will typically last for one to three years before beginning to fade.
Microblading can be a major investment for any individual but the results are absolutely gorgeous! Not only are they long-lasting but you don’t have to worry about them ever growing back! With brows that look natural, you can have the brows you’ve always wanted without ever having to worry about them fading over time. Microblading can be a lot of fun too! It’s a great bonding experience with your technician and your brows will be absolutely gorgeous. Microblading is absolutely perfect for anyone looking to get the finest brows they can get!
The Process of Microblading in Richmond Hill
The microblading process begins with numbing the area to be treated with a topical anesthetic. While waiting for the brows area to be numbed, the artist suggests the shades for the client to choose from. Once the area is numb, the artist proceeds with the brow mapping to create the best desired shape. Once the desired shape based eyes, nose and brows’ proportion created, the client may request some adjustments to get the look they want. Then the artist use a hand-held tool to create small incisions in the skin. Through these incisions, pigment will be deposited into the skin.
The artist will then use a blade to create strokes that mimic the look of natural hairs. The entire process takes about 2 hours and results are semi-permanent, lasting anywhere from 12 to 24 months. Aftercare is important in order to avoid infection and ensure proper healing.
It’s a great procedure to use in order to draw on eyebrows and give them a more natural look! We only use the best Microblading products on the market so it lasts long, looks great and doesn’t damage your skin! The Microblading procedure is very simple, but we have to warn you that your eyebrows will look great right away, but you need to give it about two weeks for them to fully heal. This is because the pigment has to take root in your skin. So if you ever want to get your eyebrows done even more, make sure to come back to our Richmond Hill beauty salon.
What to do after Microblading
First and foremost, avoid getting your brows wet for the first 24 hours after microblading. This means no sweating, no washing your face, and no steam. Keeping them dry will help the pigment stay in place and heal properly. You should also avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks.
Your eyebrows can fade prematurely if you don’t take care of them properly. To maintain them, it’s important to wear sunscreen when you’re outside in the sun. UV rays can cause the pigment to fade prematurely. In the first few days after microblading, your brows will look darker than they will eventually heal to be. Wearing a hat outdoors will help protect your brows from being scorched. In the first few days after getting microbladed, your brows will appear darker than they will eventually heal to be.
It’s important to not touch or pick at them during this time, as doing so can cause them to become uneven. If you are planning on getting microbladed, it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment for the day after a waxing appointment. The waxing will help the skin be more pliable for the artist. You should avoid tanning, swimming or getting your face wet for at least 24 hours after getting microbladed. This will help the pigment to take better.

The healing process
The microblading eyebrow healing process can be divided into three stages: the initial healing phase, the scabbing/peeling phase, and the final healing phase.
During the initial healing phase, which lasts for approximately one week, the eyebrow area will be slightly red and swollen. The scabs will start to form during this phase, but it is important not to pick at them.
The scabbing/peeling phase lasts for another week or two, during which time the scabs will start to fall off. Again, it is important not to pick at them, as this can lead to scarring.
The final healing phase can take up to six weeks, during which time the eyebrows will continue to heal and the color will continue to settle. Once the final healing phase is complete, you will be left with beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a type of Tattooing that uses small, detailed tattoos on the skin using a blade. It is becoming more popular as it has many advantages over traditional tattooing techniques such as precision, accuracy and less skin irritation.
HOW LONG IS THE APPOINTMENT?
Around two hours. The actual procedure itself will take about 30 minutes to an hour. The touch-up will take about an hour. Our specialist will consult with you the entire time during your session, ensuring that we are on the same page. We will use a symmetrical set of brows and agree on your perfect shape and color.
ARE THERE FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS?
As a general rule, 2 treatments are suggested, 6-8 weeks apart. The first follow up session which is complimentary gives us the opportunity to identify and correct any areas that may have faded or allows the client to make suggestions about alternate choices for the color or shape. Depending on the skin type, chosen shade and the shape, some may need more than one follow up . There is a minimal charge for it, but for having perfect brows, it is totally worth it!
HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?
The procedure is expected to last several years, and touch ups are recommended every 1-2 years to maintain your shape, color, and detail. Comparatively, how often assisted varies depending on a variety of factors, including your skin type (oily skin fades sooner), the color you used (lighter colors fade sooner), sun exposure (over time can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment), and how often you use daily.
DOES MICROBLADING HURT?
Our goal is to facilitate, not only the procedure, but also any discomfort during the procedure. Before the procedure begins, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area. After the Microblading procedure, a liquid anesthetic is applied to minimize pain. For the majority of clients, this procedure is mild and relatively pain free.
CAN I WORKOUT AFTER GETTING MICROBLADING?
After your session, you must refrain from working out for 7 days. Expose yourself to no more than modest levels of light to moderate sweating; rinse with lukewarm water as soon as you can wash off the location where the microblading was applied. The same effect that makes sweat disappear will quickly fade the pigment from the tattoo, and its quality will diminish.
