EYEBROWS! No doubt, our most important facial feature! It doesn't matter if you like them arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows literally frame our face and make our eyes truly stand out. So the question is, are you satisfied with yours? If not, there is a very natural option that delivers semi-permanent results. Let us introduce you to MICROBLADING! Unlike the sometimes Sharpie-esque effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of natural strokes that look just like real hairs.
Avante’sMicroblading expert, Megann Chesshir, states "Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows. Chesshir also states that those who just want to add a slight arch are also great candidates, and the results are a natural, undetectable fringe.
Many clients are wondering how Microblading is different from Permanent Make Up. During the microblading process a special microblading pen is used to apply individual strokes one by one. It's an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete. Since the results will last for up to three years before beginning to fade it's good to know that the technicians pay so much attention to detail. The first part of the process is spent drawing the shape in with removable pencil. That’s the longest part and the most important step. During this time, the best customized shape for every client is chosen. Clients are advised to be cautious of places that claim to complete the process in one hour. It's not a rushed procedure, it cannot be properly done in an hour.
Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid gel anesthetic. If you're worried that the process is painful, be assured, some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it's relatively painless.
The best part about the technique is that there is no down time. Your new set of brows will be ready for a selfie immediately after the process. However, a one month follow-up will be scheduled after your appointment. The healing process is different for everyone, and it takes between 25 to 30 days. After a month we recommend an hour touch-up to most clients.
Microblading is low maintenance. After healing, you can rub them and enjoy swimming. We recommend most clients come once a year for a brief touch up.
