Let’s be honest ladies.. no matter how much we all want them, naturally perfect eyebrows are hard to come by. Achieving the coveted bold brow look is now in reach, Studio Gabriella is now offering microblading. With microblading, you can wake up with amazing brows every day without ever picking up a brow pencil. Full, beautiful eyebrows are extremely popular right now, and microblading is the perfect way to make this trend a reality for you.
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure intended to enhance the appearance of your eyebrows. It’s essentially an undetectable, natural eyebrow tattoo so you can have gorgeous brows you never have to worry about. The pigment is scratched into the skin in fine strokes to resemble natural hair. It’s not only great for filling in sparse areas in your brows where there isn’t much growth, but also for defining and amplifying your natural brow shape. Missing brows can be restored, even for those suffering from alopecia. The treatment does not last forever though. It will end up lasting about 1 to 2 years, depending on skin type and color chosen. To keep up the look of stunning brows, we recommend you come and see us every 6 to 12 months for a maintenance appointment.
Shading (also known as pow pow brows) is another excellent brow procedure we offer at Studio Gabriella. Shading differs from regular microblading because instead of pulling the microblade across your skin to create the look of brow hair, it disperses the pigment into your skin to result in a fuller look. This gives a softer, shaded brow pencil look. Unlike microblading, shading lasts 1 to 3 years, and we recommend coming for a maintenance appointment every year to keep up that remarkable brow look. Shading is commonly done in combination with microblading, and it’s a great option to consider when making an appointment with us.
If you are still unsure on whether you want to book a microblading appointment at Studio Gabriella, we can give you a few benefits that come with microblading:
• It works for all skin tones
• You won’t need to worry about brow pencils or gels
• It will enhance the appearance of your natural brows
• The procedure can help boost your self-esteem
These are just a few things from the list of positives that comes with microblading. Although this is a super fun and exciting procedure we 100% recommend all of you to do, this isn’t for everyone, so if you have any concerns you can contact us, and we will do our best to answer questions you have. It’s also a good idea to do more research about any concerns you may have.
Microblading is an investment, and it’s a good one to make. You will have perfect eyebrows 24/7 without ever having to even think about them. Microblading also looks flawlessly natural, which is a plus. Most people won’t even notice they’re microbladed; they’ll just think you’re great with a brow pencil. We love this procedure at Studio Gabriella, and we think you will too.
Once you have wonderfully decided to book a microblading appointment with us, there are a few things you should know before you come in for your appointment. To prepare for the procedure, avoid alcohol and caffeine, and don’t take ibuprofen 24 hours before the appointment to minimize any bleeding. It is important to arrive to your appointment 30 minutes early so we can apply the numbing cream. It is also best if you do not spray tan or wax around your brow area and to skip exfoliating products for two weeks before your appointment.
What to expect at your appointment:
Your brows and the area around them will first be cleaned, sanitized, and numbed.
Gabriella will discuss what you are looking for, ideal shape, color (light/dark) and whether you would like a fuller or more natural look. She will use your face shape to find the perfect look for each client. She will draw the brow shape and decide on the best ink color based on your skin tone and natural brow color.
Gabriella will then begin the process using the microblading pen to draw on hair strokes. This can take anywhere from 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the eyebrow area of each particular client. After you are satisfied and the perfect look is achieved, aftercare ointment will start the healing process. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled, and instructions on how to take care of your new brows will be given to you.
To ensure your brows look the best and last the longest, there are some aftercare instructions you should follow after your appointment.
Day of treatment (Day 1): Gently clean the area with water-moistened cotton, aftercare wipes, or if needed lightly wash with mild unscented soap 30 mins after treatment, repeat 3-5 times. Apply skin aftercare ointment every 1-3 hours and before bedtime.
Day 2-7: For normal skin, apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab. For oily skin, only apply when skin feels dry. Vaseline may also relieve any dryness. Quick and indirect water contact from daily shower is ok.
Avoid hot tubs, sauna, swimming, public pools, excessive sweating, makeup over the treated area, tanning beds, and direct sunlight for 7-10 days. We suggest wearing SPF 30 every day. Also try to sleep on your back.
Avoid picking or rubbing the brows, as this will remove color and could lead to scarring. Do not use a washcloth or anything abrasive on treatment area.
Here are some final things we think you should know when considering if microblading is right for you: Microblading is a form of tattooing, therefore semi-permeant, so your brow pigment will change over time. Although with the proper care and maintenance can last around 1-2 years. Preparation and aftercare are essential. It is a very rewarding investment, your eyebrows will look more symmetrical, and you will have flawless brows every day.
