MICROBLADING & SHADING
Microblading & Shading
(includes first touchup session
4-6 wks after initial appoin.)
This semi-permanent procedure also known as microshading, combo brows, combination brows, blade and shade and hybrid brows. It combines microbladed hair-like strokes and machine shading. Microblading is the first part of the procedure, where each stroke deposits pigment by gently etching hair-like strokes into the skin, using a one time use, disposable hand tool with a very fine blade. The second part of the procedure is done by a permanent makeup machine and one time use, disposable, single needle, that gently implants tiny dots of pigment into the skin, between the bareness of the strokes. This will give a powdery effect, creating density and fullness to the brow.
The colour of pigment is carefully chosen to match the natural or desired eyebrow colour, taking into consideration the clients skin overtone and undertone.
Results typically last 1-2 years, possibly longer with machine shading. However, how fast it fades depends on the skin type, sun exposure, aftercare and skin care routine.
A touch-up is recommended at 12-24 months, for a colour boost and to maintain the desired shape, for a longer period of time.
Best for those individuals with tight skin, small pores and normal to dry skin.
Better option for those individuals with oily skin.
Does microblading and shading hurt?
Microblading - clients have said on a pain scale of 1-10, it feels like a 3. Similar feeling to plucking 3 hairs at once.This discomfort will only last the first pass and after that a topical anesthetic is applied and clients feel comfortable. Once microblading is complete, the shading portion begins and by this time the client is already numb. Clients may feel a little vibration from the machine, but overall are completely relaxed.
What tools are used for microblading and shading?
Microblading is done by using a one time use, disposable hand tool with a very fine blade, made up of micro-needles. This allows for precise, crisp strokes to be etched into the skin.
Microblading and shading requires the use of both a microblade and pmu machine.
This semi-permanent procedure is a shading technique of the eyebrows. It is done using a permanent makeup machine and one time use, disposable, single needle, that gently implants tiny dots of pigment into the skin (similar to the one in the photo above).
