Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo placed to mimic eyebrow hairs

Using a tiny needle, a small amount of pigment matching your current hair color is placed into the skin to create the appearance of a natural brow. Microblading is great to treat thin, misshapen, or uneven brows due to hair loss, hair damage, and scarring. More specifically, it is a semi-permanent tattoo technique used to give the illusion of fuller brows. Microblading is about creating the best shape for each client – each eyebrow should be tailored to the client who’s being microbladed on.

For the Best Microblading Results:

After the initial brow session, a 6-8 week touch up is booked.  Additional follow up sessions are then recommended every 9 months to 2 years depending on an individuals lifestyle, skin type, and medical history.

Any Downtime with Microblading?

There will be mild swelling for the first 24 hours. There may be scabbing and healing for the first 10 days post procedure. You have to make sure to keep your brows dry, so no water, creams, sweating, sun, cleansers, exfoliators or soaps. Total healing can take up to 14 days. But it is worth it!

Who is Microblading for?

We use Microblading to help patients who have hair loss due to medical conditions, like Alopecia. It is also great for anyone looking for natural eyebrows that look beautiful.  

At Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic we take your care seriously. All treatments are done under the medical directive of Dr. Rayhaan Dawood MD. CCFP. and done by our expert Skincare Specialist, Raeesa.

Is microblading different than a tattoo?

Microblading doesn’t penetrate as deep as a tattoo, it is simply placed on the surface of the epidermis which is why it can also be referred to as a “semi-permanent” tattoo. The color will fade roughly within 18 months, depending on sun exposure and aftercare procedures. The hair strokes are also implanted with a fine, manual needle, unlike a tattoo creating a more natural look.

How does the Microblading process work?

First, our Microblading Artist Raeesa analyzes your brows to create the ideal eyebrow shape for your face.  An appropriate color is selected that will match your natural hair and undertone. The eyebrow area is then cleaned and numbed for treatment. Using a pencil-like device with a small blade at the end, manual hair strokes are drawn on. The process is very precise due to the pencil-like device, which has a sloped blade at the end. The blade scratches the surface of the skin. The precise needle allows for finely placed, precise strokes with medical grade pigments into the epidermis of the skin. These fine strokes create beautiful, natural looking hair strokes. Once all passes are complete, an ointment is applied to help with the healing process. 

The full process takes about 120 minutes, depending on your eyebrows. Patients are then encouraged to schedule a follow up appointment in four to six weeks to make sure they’re happy with the results or see if they need little tweaks. 

Results can last anywhere from one to three years, depending on your skin type (the oilier your skin, the faster the ink will fade).

Are there any side effects with microblading?

There shouldn’t be any major side effects when you go to a trusted and certified microblading brow artist. Infection can be possible if you don’t follow the proper aftercare procedures. Not every microblading artist is the same, so make sure you do your research before booking and getting your brows done. As with any cosmetic or aesthetic procedure,  “cheaper” isn’t “better” especially when it comes to your face. Before your appointment, make sure you read reviews and look at befores and afters. 

How do I help keep the eyebrows from fading?

The most important product you can use after microblading (and in general) is sunscreen and medical grade SkinCare products. Sunscreen will help extend the longevity of your brows and prevent against fading from the sun. 

You will also need to be off any Retin-A or Retinol products about a week before an appointment and about 30 days after getting your brows done, as those ingredients can cause the pigments to fade prematurely. Don’t wet your eyebrows for a week or two while they heal and do not apply any makeup onto the area for at least a week. Once the skin has completely healed, you can resume your normal skin and makeup routine. 

What is the Brow aftercare like?

The first 7 days may have scabbing, the rule is not to pick the scabs because this can create scarring. Your eyebrows will start to heal over, which may cause some irritation, but that’s normal with the healing process, much like when you get hurt and the healing begins. The color may change, and lighten. 

You will want to gently wash your eyebrows morning and night with water and a gentle antibacterial soap, such as a infant/newborn soap. Ensure all the soap is rinsed away before patting dry with a towel. Avoid using any cleansers containing acids or exfoliants, as there are small micro cuts in your eyebrows that will cause pain if using these.

You will also want to use a small amount of coconut oil, or something similar, to each brow morning and night. This will help keep the brows well moisturized and may help prevent a ton of scabbing. 

What you’ll specifically want to do is use a clean pillowcase, to avoid any infections. Don’t pick any scabs, as this will create scarring / scar tissue. Avoid facials, peels, and botox for the next 6 weeks (or until full healing has occurred). Ensure to protect your face from sunlight for 1 week. Make sure you use a hat when going outside. Avoid swimming for at least 2 weeks. Avoid use of makeup on your brows until healing is complete. 

Things to avoid prior to microblading:

Avoid removal of eyebrow hair (tweezing, waxing, picking or electrolysis) for at least one week prior. Do not use sunbeds or tan in direct sunlight for 2 weeks prior. Avoid a facial or peel at least 2 weeks prior. Stop use of retinol or Vitamin A 2 weeks prior. If you get Botox or Fillers, wait until the healing is complete before microblading. Avoid fish oil or vitamin E one week prior if possible, as this may just promote more bleeding. Do not tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure, as this will affect the pigment. 

On the actual day, do not drink alcohol 48 hours prior to the procedure. Avoid coffee for at least 2 hours prior to the procedure.
