Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique used for the eyebrows. Microblading can be used on someone with little to no eyebrows by creating an illusion of a more defined and fuller brow.
Please contact Treuvis to schedule a consult to see if you are a candidate. To begin, our microblading artist creates and maps out a brow shape based on your symmetry and bone structure with your approval. Tiny hair strokes are made with matching hair color ink into skin.
This process takes 2-3 hours per session.
During the session pain is a tolerable discomfort and is done in 2 sessions that are scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. Due to the pigment fading over time, it is recommended to have a touch up done every 1-2 years to maintain results. Healing Immediately following your procedure, the eyebrows will appear to be about 30-50% darker in color and sharply defined.
This appearance can last 7 to 10 days while healing. There will be some scabbing, redness, and flaking during this time. It is important to NOT PICK the scabs and to allow the dry skin to fall off on its own so that you can avoid loss of pigment or scarring.
The Microblading Technician will go over healing Instructions and proper aftercare for the best results. The healing process can take a month as it takes the skin about 30 days to regenerate. Therefore, the 30-day mark is when the true color in your brows will reveal itself.
