What is microblading?

When pencils, powders, gels, and stencils still leave you unsatisfied with the look or shape of your eyebrows, you may want to consider something more permanent. Microblading is a semi-permanent form of eyebrow makeup that is now offered through Ogden Clinic Dermatology. Microblading is the implantation of pigment into the skin in a hair stroke pattern, performed on the eyebrows. Due to multiple factors and different skin types, microblading is best performed as a two-step process.

  • Your first session will build shape and gain symmetry
  • Your second session is used to fine-tune the brows and to add density. The second session is given 4-6 weeks after the first.

Some clients may need multiple sessions to achieve their desired result (these two steps are included in the price.)

What is powder fill?

Our licensed esthetician also offers powder-filled microblading Powder fill is a more solid look and is better suited for oily and mature skin types’ it is paired well with microblading for a more defined and dramatic look.

How long does microblading last?

Microblading lasts anywhere from 1-2 years depending on multiple factors such as lifestyle, skin type, metabolism, health, hormones and how well you take care of it during the healing process and once it is healed. If you chose the powder fill technique, it last about 3-4 years. Microblading is a procedure that requires maintenance. Touch ups ensure your make up always looks fresh and is most cost-effective to get touch ups when you start seeing strokes fade.

Does microblading hurt?

Your brows will be numbed with three numbing agents (if you are allergic to Benzocaine, Lidocaine, or Tetracane, inform your technician prior to your appointment.) Clients feel little or no pain during the process.

Preparation for Microblading

24-48 hours prior to your appointment, you will want to avoid the following:

  • Caffeine
  • Fish Oil
  • Aspirin/Ibuprofen
  • Sun exposure
  • Exfoliation and anti-aging or acne treatment products or procedure
  • All procedures are booked out for 2 hours. The majority of this time is spent on you and I discussing in depth color selection and your customized shape.
  • Do not shave your eyebrows
  • If you have a desired shape in mind come with that drawn on or a photo
  • If you use an eyebrow pencil bring that with you

Post-treatment Care

Most clients take between 10 days and two weeks to completely heal. If you are still peeling or flaking after two weeks, continue following your estheticians aftercare instructions until you no longer peel. Do not pick your scabs.

It’s normal to experience redness and swelling after treatment. The color of your brows will also be very sharp and dark to begin with. Don’t fret—the skin is still scabbing and healing. Expect color to fade slightly and become matte over time. Don’t expect your brows to heal perfectly after the first session. This is a two-step process and sometimes multiple step process. It is completely normal for some strokes to not stay the first session.

Please allow the entire four weeks for strokes to completely show. Often times, strokes take time to settle into a layer of the skin where they are at their most visible.

Eyebrow Aftercare Instructions

While your eyebrows heal (redness, scabbing, and flaking), avoid direct water exposure. This includes excessive sweating and steam. Avoid washing your eyebrows when you wash your face. Avoid sun exposure and cosmetics.

Directly after the procedure, your esthetician will apply an ointment, at home after 3-4 hours you will gently wipe area with gauze and sterile water. After this, avoid touching your new brows for the remaining healing period. Also keep the area dry from ointments, creams and lotions until completely healed.

***It is imperative to follow the instructions to ensure the best results.
