WHY MICROBLADING ?
Having thin, uneven, or patchy eyebrows, can be challenging. Spending countless hours in front the mirror, feeling insecure, trying to fix them will make your head spin. Going out at night and worrying if they got smudged or out of place can make you feel hesitant and unsure.
That's why getting microblading at Euphoria Face & Body can be a life changing moment - it can put an end to this vicious cycle and liberate you from the chains of imperfect brows!
GET THE FACTS
WHAT IS MICROBLADING ?
Microblading is a form of a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup performed using, a manual (not a machine) disposable handheld tool, composed with very fine needles resembling the shape of a blade (we call it a microblade), to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin.
HOW MICROBLADING IS DONE ?
Each new hair stroke that is meant to simulate the client natural eyebrows hair and seamlessly blend it with the client existing brows to add color and fullness resulting in a very natural look. Our microblading ensures that we design a customized shape, look, and feel that complements your face and your personality. With our experienced Artists at the helm, the results will be gorgeous yet undetectable
WHO IS MICROBLADING FOR ?
Microblading is an ideal solution for clients who have patchy, thin, or uneven eyebrows and are looking for the most natural looking results. However, not everyone is a candidate for microblading and there are different elements to consider such as skin condition and health. Microblading is most suitable for clients with normal skin and small pores. Oil in the skin can cause the Microblading hair-stroke to expand and blur so the less oily the client skin is, the better the result would be. At Eeuphoria Face & Body, we have very strict guidelines that we follow to decide who is a good candidate for microblading and who should avoid microblading!
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES AND APPROACHES TO MICROBLADING ?
Yes, there are more than a few different approaches to Microblading. There are 1D Eyebrows, where hair strokes all go in one direction. There are HD Eyebrows, where the hair strokes are laid out in a specific pattern across the eyebrow ridges, Creating a 3-D effect. Here at Euphoria Face & Body we created a specific hair pattern that has been recognized as one of the most natural and popular microblading designs in the industry.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED FOR A NEW SET OF MICROBLADED EYEBROWS?
A new set of Microbladed eyebrows takes two appointments to complete. The technique and art of microblading is very delicate and for this reason it needs two visits to ensure that all the strokes are evenly saturated with pigment. The second appointment is called a complementary touchup and takes place 4 to 6 weeks after the initial appointment after the pigments settled into the skin. In this complementary touchup, the artist makes any needed adjustments and ensures each hair-stroke has even color.
HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY NEW MICROBLADED BROWS?
We recommend yearly touchup, after the initial complementary touchup, to maintain the crispness and freshness of the color. Natural fading occurs from external factors such as exposure to the sun as well as internal factors such as the gradual break down of pigments as your body metabolizes it out of your system. Everyone can experience the fading process differently and it really comes down to skin type and lifestyle
IS MICROBLADING PAINFUL?
Many people ask us: is microblading painful?
Most of our clients report little or no pain. Often they say it's a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10, at most. Some clients have literally slept through the appointment! We leave a topical anesthetic on the eyebrow area for 20 minutes before we begin the process, so this leaves most clients totally numb during the procedure.
microblading is intended to be a painless experience, certainly less painful than traditional tattooing on account of the numbing cream. Let the numbing cream take effect, and relax!
Can I get microblading while I’m pregnant?"
Our policy at Euphoria Face & Body is we do not perform microblading during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. This is the policy for most permanent makeup artists if you research online. In truth, there is very little scientific medical research on tattoo ink and pregnancy, nor is there any research on the ink we use (the ink in microblading is different from tattoo ink). Until there is clarity on the subject from medical professionals, our policy remains no.
Then again, if your artist is booked many months in advance, you may need to wait until after pregnancy anyway! ;)
Is microblading the same as eyebrow tattooing?
1. Microblading artists hand draw each line. Eyebrow tattooing uses a machine.
This makes a big difference. Microblading features very fine lines and when applied by a skilled artist, those lines do not “bleed out” over time. Not true of traditional eyebrow tattooing. Eyebrow tattooing is usually done by a machine, with much greater injury to the skin. The lines created are not as fine and over time begin to bleed out. If you’ve ever seen someone tattoo handwriting on their skin, only to see the writing get thicker over the years, then you know the effect.
2. Microblading has different retention.
The fine lines of microblading often fade over time. For many, they fade over 1 to 3 years. With microblading, there is physically less ink deposited under the skin. In the dermis, where the ink is placed, this ink can move around over time, giving a slighter appearance. When there is a lot of ink, like in traditional tattooing, the tattoo remains very consistent, often expanding. With microblading, the ink will fade or disappear, depending on the skin type and how much ink was inserted.
3. Microblading inks maintain their color better.
Microblading does not use traditional tattoo ink. We use a different kind of ink that maintains its original hue over time. Many tattooing clients report that their tattoos turn blue or brown over time. With microblading, however, colors tend to get lighter, rather than changing hue.
4. Microblading is less painful. (And many consider it painless.)
Our artists use a topical anesthetic, which numbs clients of most of the pain. In fact, many microblading clients report little or no pain. Some people fear traditional tattoos on certain parts of their body because of the pain, but this is typically not a inhibiting factor for microblading clients.
5. Results from microblading are more natural than traditional eyebrow tattoos.
Each hairstroke is hand drawn in microblading. To the naked eye, these individual hairstrokes blend right in with a clients' real hair. While eyebrow tattoos may look more like a filled-in brow or a solid line (“sharpie look”), microblading looks more like natural eyebrow hair.
6. Microblading artists are not necessarily tattoo artists and vice versa!
Microblading and tattooing each take specific training and are not linked! Microblading artists do not learn how to tattoo during their training and likewise, tattoo artists do not necessarily learn the skills necessary to become a microblading artist. For the noted differences, tattooing and microblading are each separate artforms that take their own time and training to master. (That said, great tattoo artists, with proper training in the art of microblading, would make excellent microblading artists)
