WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a form of tattooing.
Unlike a regular tattoo, “microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin to the dermal layer. This is what is called, “The Sweet Spot”. This is preformed with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine,” Diane Marie explains. “I draw hair-like strokes with the tool to emulate natural hairs in your brows to give you more brows or brows you never had but always wanted!” Even though it’s not as deep as the regular tattoo, it’s still a tattoo because pigment is implanted under the skin. When a regular tattoo is implanted, it goes deeper into the subcutaneous level, with lifetime lasting effects.
PREPARATION IS KEY…
There are some things you need to avoid before getting microbladed, namely, anything that will thin out your blood. If a person is taking prescription blood thinners, this is not the procedure for you and I would consider this person a high risk and would be obliged to decline this procedure for you.
If you drink a lot, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop at least one week before your treatment, Diane Marie advises. Retinol makes your skin thin and can then bleed a little more and can become more sensitive. Adding that profuse bleeding pushes out pigment so that it doesn’t retain as well. It would be best to avoid aspirin and retinols during the first week of the healing process.
IT DOESN’T HURT (TOO MUCH)
Pain is relative. Some people feel more than others. Overall it feels like little scratches. You feel it, but it’s not unbearable. “I prep my clients brows with topical numbing cream and I top it up throughout the process to dull the discomfort. If you have a low pain tolerance,” Diane Marie says, “I find it best if I apply numbing cream for up to 45 minutes beforehand.”
You might have heard that numbing cream inflames skin and makes for a less precise application. “I find that is untrue,” says Diane Marie, “I use a numbing cream with all my Microblading procedures and it’s never been an issue. I use it before I start the procedure and during the procedure to keep my client as comfortable as possible. In fact some of my clients have fallen asleep during their microblading procedure! I Love that!”
