MICROBLADING & FAQ
Microblading is also known as 3D Brows, Eyebrow Feathering, Eyebrow Embroidery, and is considered Permanent Make-up. But unlike tattooing or traditional permanent make-up, Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure lasting anywhere from 8 months 1.5 years. Yearly touch-ups are recommended to keep the brows looking fresh. The Microblading process is not complete after the initial procedure. In all cases, a follow-up appointment is required between 30-60 days after your initial application to fine tune and ensure the best result. It is important to remember that this is a two part procedure. During the healing process; lifestyle, metabolism, aftercare, and external factors can all contribute to areas fading or areas being spotty. Be assured that some fading and unevenness during healing is completely normal. That is why it is a two part procedure, and anything that has been expelled will be re-implanted during your second visit.

Clients often ask is Microblading painful?
The answer for most is no. 3D Brow Artistry uses high quality topical anesthetics to keep you completely comfortable throughout the whole process. Clients often compare it to tweezing their hair. It is recommended to schedule your appointment after your menstrual cycle as you can be more sensitive during this time.
The Healing Process and Downtime
There really is no downtime. Most clients leave their appointment and continue on with their day. Some clients skin is slightly pink around the area for a couple hours post appointment, but usually subsides very quickly.
Water must be kept of off your eyebrow area for the first 7-10 days. You can wash your face and shower immediately after. Your artist will give you instructions on how to do so without effecting your new eyebrows.
You will leave your appointment with beautiful new eyebrows, but your body will be going through a healing process for the next couple weeks.
Pigment can appear darker at first, the day following the appointment up to 14 days later. This is because the pigment can oxidize, and hasn't fully settled into the skin. Pigment may appear darker and more dense for a week or so. But this to will change, as the body continues to heal your eyebrows will become dry and flake. Once the flaking process has subsided, the pigment will be lighter and softer as it appeared before.
Proper care following your procedure is necessary to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that in many cases, some unevenness of color is to be expected. This is the purpose of the touch-up visit. Please review the following aftercare instructions and refer to them as needed. If during your healing process you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact us.

SOFT TAP EYEBROWS
Soft Tap method is slightly different then the Microblading procedure. Soft Tap method, is done manually by tapping the pigment into the skin instead of stroking it into the skin like Microblading. Gentle tapping motion implants the pigment into the brows in hair like strokes. This method isn't as fine as Microblading, but you are still able to achieve hair strokes and a natural appearance. The Soft Tap look is a little more dense and thicker looking than Microblading. Soft Tap is a greatoption for clients who like a fuller eyebrow, clients who have autoimmune issues that are preventing Microblading from retaining in the skin, or who just want less maintenance. With the Soft Tap method you will need less touch-ups since the pigment is implanted deeper into the skin. Like Microblading, this is also a two part procedure, you leave with beautiful eyebrows, but come back 4-6 weeks later to perfect anything during the healing process. After that, touch-ups are generally done every 1-3 years.
