Microblading 


Best for: Anyone who wants a natural brow look that lasts.

Microblading is a technique using a super-fine pen  to deposit pigment into skin. The tip is so fine, in fact, that it can create hair strokes that look legit. And the needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, which is what makes the method semi-permanent. Think of each stroke as a little paper-cut

*Microblading can last anywhere from 12 months to three years, depending on your lifestyle.

Microblading & Microshading 


Best for: Anyone who wants brows to look more "done"

Microshading technique is done using either an electric hand tool or a manual tool, which creates a soft, powdered effect that resembles eyebrow powder. Instead of the hair stroke typical with microblading and microfeathering, microshading employs a stippling method, which uses repetitive dots of pigment. 

*Microshading can last anywhere from 12 months to three years, depending on your lifestyle.

Microfeathering


Best for: Anyone who wants to lightly fill out the brows they already have.

Microfeathering is a form of microblading. She's best known for her feathered brow, a no-needle shaping method that's all about a natural, fluffy-looking brow. 

Microfeathering is a little more high-maintenance than microblading. She requires a consultation to ensure that there's enough natural hair to help blend the pigment into your brows.

This technique creates hair strokes with a digital machine. I use best permanent makeup machine  Nouveau Contour  Using Nano needle technology, this technique is often the choice for oily skin types that cannot tolerate microblading but still desire the look of 'hair strokes'.  This technique tends to last longer than traditional micro bladed strokes.

The main difference between Nano brows and microblading is that nano needling uses a tiny needle with the aid of a vibrating machine to deposit pigment under the skins surface where traditional microblading uses a fine blade by hand to create the illusion of hair strokes.
This technique is great for oily skin but also suitable for all skin types.

Pre-procedure Instructions for Permanent Makeup
When scheduling an appointment date for a permanent makeup procedure, keep in mind the healing time of the procedure. You will need a few days afterward without social plans or strenuous activity. You may not look your best (swelling, oozing, & looks like wet paint) so plan activities around the house.
Plan a shopping trip ahead of time for items you will need: ointments, straws, napkins for blotting, Q-tips, OTC pain reliever, prescriptions, a good book or movies.  Get ahead on your dirty work – no lawn mowing or chores that will get dirt/ bacteria on the healing area.

 Do not have a procedure right before going on vacation because:


 You need healing time – you will not look like you had a makeover at the mall.


       You may not be able to avoid sun, wind, or other items listed in post-care instructions,


                                        If you have a question or permanent makeup problem it would be best to be near your permanent makeup artist and local physician.



Do not wear your good clothes for the procedure because pigment might splatter on them. Pigment washes out of most clothes, but better safe than sorry. 

Wear something comfortable.

FAQ Microblading

Eyebrows are a key feature on everyone’s face.

Permanent makeup microblading eyebrows Tampa FL brows eyebrows eyeliner lips permanent

What is Eyebrow Microblading?

  Eyebrow microblading is known by several names, including microstroking, micropigmentation, eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering, and 3D eyebrows. Although the names differ, the procedure is the same. Microblading fills in sparse areas of your natural brow, which is done by using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. The result is a natural, real life looking hair stroke. 

Is microblading permanent?         

          Microblading is not permanent. The results from microblading have semi permanent qualities for two reasons. First, the pigment used for microblading has an iron oxide base rather than a carbon base that is used for permanent cosmetics. Second, microblading pigment is not implanted into the skin as deep when compared to permanent cosmetic procedures. Does microblading fade?         

            Microblading tends to fade gradually over time, so a touch up is recommended 12-18 months after the initial                          microblading which keeps the color of each microstroke looking vibrant. It’s important to know, even though the color gradually gets lighter, it will not fade into shades of blue or pink like the fading that occurs with permanent cosmetics.  

How long does microblading last?         

          The healed results of microblading last between one and three years. The variation in time is determined by lifestyle, sun exposure and skin type. Someone with an oilier skin type tends to experience results that fade quicker compared to someone with a drier skin type.  

How long does microblading take?         

          The average microblading appointment lasts two hours. Nothing is ever rushed during your microblading appointment because the results are a semi permanent eyebrow tattoo that stays on your face for an extended period of time. We insist on being thorough and taking the time to provide the most beautiful, natural looking brows possible.

      Does eyebrow microblading hurt?         

          Keeping in mind that pain is subjective, most clients say they experience no discomfort during microblading. Any pain that was experienced has been compared to the feeling of a light scratch with minimal discomfort. "Beauty & Brows" uses a specialized technique to apply a topical anesthetic to provide a comfortable microblading experience. Some clients have even been able to take a nap while undergoing their eyebrow transformation. 

Does microblading look natural? 

          "Beauty & Brows" takes pride in creating extremely natural looking eyebrows. Natural looking results are made possible by mastering three key elements of microblading; brow shaping, color theory, and micro stroking technique. Brows by Whitney has mastered each element in order to give your brows the natural, gorgeous look you want. Feel free to review some of our before and after pictures in the gallery. 

What is the aftercare for microblading eyebrows?         

          The aftercare is not complicated, but it does require some diligence to provide the best possible microblading results. During the first week, microblading aftercare requires washing the microbladed eyebrows with a mild antibacterial soap at the start and finish of each day followed by applying the aftercare ointment. Except when cleaning and applying the aftercare ointment, making sure nothing else comes in contact with the eyebrow area is critical. Activities involving sun exposure, water, and even exercise to prevent perspiration, need to be avoided. It is imperative to follow the aftercare instructions to get the best possible healed results. Please refer to the aftercare page for additional information.

Microblading/Permanent Makeup Aftercare

Right after:

image81

Your permanent cosmetic procedure was performed using sterile, single-use needle and high quality pigments.  The end result of your procedure depends greatly on following this aftercare protocol.  Please follow the instructions below unless otherwise instructed by a physician.
 

Immediately after the procedure your eyebrows will appear to be too dark, too thick and will have an unnatural appearance. Relax! And don’t worry, within one to two weeks the color will fade and they will become more natural looking. It is only after healing is complete that you will be able to fully appreciate your new eyebrows. At that time you may even think they are too light; if that is the case we can correct it during a “touch-up” session. On average you will lose 20% to 40% of the initial color.
 

Brows may oxidize and actually get slightly darker before the color softens in the healing process. Don’t worry, this is normal, they will lighten!
 

You may wax or tweeze brow area before a brow tattoo to help clean up and design your brow placement, but do not resume any method of hair removal for at least 2 weeks after your new brows have been tattooed.
 

If you donate blood, it is a Red Cross policy that you must wait one year after any tattooing procedure.

Do not wet for 7 days, please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area.

No rubbing, no picking. The treated area might feel a little ticklish during the first phase of recovering process, it is important not to rub it as you might get infection into your skin. 

Peeling is absolutely normal during second phase of recovery; avoid any sort of peeking of dry skin as you might peel out the wrong parts and create bald spots in newly reconstructed brow.

Keep your hair away from your face. This means avoid putting your fringe over brows for at least 7 days as this could cause infection.

Apply vaseline ointment after 7 days of the treatment. 

Oil usually applied in the evening before sleep, some customer might need to apply it 2 times per day. 

It will help to keep treated area moisturized and soft for the rest of recovery period. 


The day of your procedure:
 

Use a fresh q-tip to apply  ointment, flip it and wipe off excess. You only need a light coat of ointment as a barrier so the skin can also breathe.

No sun beds, tanning, excessive sweating in the gym, no makeup or anti aging creams on the brow area  for at least 10 days. 

It is best to allow the brow to heal first before using any of the above. 

Entire healing process will take from 4 to 6 weeks  for Microblading  ( For Permanent Makeup 6-8 weeks) 

Depending on your body’s regeneration, age, immune system and lifestyle. 

Sometimes after microblading customers develop dry, flaky skin. 

It is very important not to rub, pick or peel off your flakes or scabs. Itching is absolutely normal as skin is repairing itself. 

Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing process.  If you get your brow wet at the beginning of recovery, simply dry it with lint free tissue. 

The way you take care of your new brow after Microblading  or Permanent will have great impact on the way it looks. Improper care often results in fading or “patchy” brow.

Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period brows might appear lighter than original. 

Often, even with proper care, customers develop bald spots or loose original hairstrokes which makes brows look uneven.  It is absolutely normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process that technician can control. 

That’s why most customers need a touch up after 1 month to assure that brows are perfectly even and desired effect was achieved.

Don’t touch with fingers. Stay away from dirt (gardening or sport activities) to prevent possible infections.

For the next 7 to 10 days:

image82

Wash area with cool wet cloth – no soaps – and apply Vaseline ointment two to three times a day, do not let your brows get dry & crusty. It is absolutely imperative that you do not let the brow area dry out, as this will create dryness and scabbing, resulting in the loss of color and shading. It is best to apply the ointment approximately 3-4 times a day for 7 to 10 days. Always use a fresh Q-tip with each application of ointment; this will reduce the risk of a secondary infection. Be sure to put ointment on right before you go to bed at night, first thing when you wake up in the morning and one to two more times during the day. Itching is also common but do not rub your eyebrow area or pick at it if it starts to peel and flake, if you notice a little lifting of color, apply ointment again and let it fall off naturally.
 

Some swelling, redness, tenderness and itching is normal and is to be expected.
Do not wear any makeup for at least  10  days on or around your brow area.

Do not use Retin A, Retinol A, Renova or products that contain AHA’s, or similar lightening products on the procedure area (Glycolic, Lactic Acids etc). These products will fade your pigment color prematurely.
 

Always wear a powerful sunscreen when in the sun, use a SPF30 or higher, on your brows. Hair strokes and lighter colors will fade faster than a solid brow fill. Fading is also dependent on your aftercare, your skin’s age and its ability to retain color. 

Although it is permanent, your color will fade over time. You must do your part to ensure long lasting results by proper follow up and care.

After Day 14:

Resume your normal activities except, continue to avoid laser or chemical peels and forms of exfoliation, and any creams containing retinal or glycolic acid until after the completion of your microblading touch up appointment, and its healing process as well.

VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER – the most important thing to remember is to constantly keep the ointment on your brows for at least 5 days, you WILL lose a lot of your color if you don’t do this!

Color Corrections of another artist’s work usually take more visits.

image83

It's critical to avoid the following for 14 days after your microblading procedure.

How to prepare for appointment

Microblading, Permanent Makeup, Tampa Fl 
Brows lips eyebrows Eyeliner

The eyes are the “window of the soul”. We all want thicker and fuller eyelashes. Yet, for some reason, few people other than the very young can keep their eyelashes from losing their long and thick appearance and some even lose most or all of their lashes. A lash enhancement gives the natural look of fuller lashes and is part of the eyeliner procedure.


  • Bring sunglasses to wear home. Eyes may be light sensitive.
  • No alcohol or caffeinated product’s 24 hours before to treatment and no aspirin or blood-thinning medication’s five (5) days prior. 
  • Makeup should be removed and the skin thoroughly cleansed before procedure, unless you would like to consult with your technician about your current style of make up. For optimal results, the skin to be treated should not be irritated. 
  • Do not dye or perm lashes for 2 days prior.
  • Do not use eyelash curler the day of the procedure.
  • Do not wear contact lens during the procedure or for 24 hours after.
  • Do not use lash growth serum for two weeks before or after your procedure
  • If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure. Most physicians are giving a 2 month ok after cataract, Lasik, and blepharoplasty.

Eyeliner Appointment

  • If you use or have used Retin-A, Accutane, or any other skin medications, please advise the technician. 
  • Pain Preparation: Though the sensation of micro pigment implantation is minimal, clients respond differently. Some will feel a stronger sensation than others. Overall, procedures require minimal pain preparation. However, some client’s have taken over-the-counter Tylenol, thirty (30) minutes before treatment. This will not interfere with the procedure. Any physician prescribed pain-relieving medication for which you have arranged, should be taken as directed, and usually after your arrival or 30-minutes before treatment. Please advise me of any medications taken. Clients having eyeliner implants should not plan to drive home, or for the remainder of the day after the treatment. microblading eyebrows Tampa

EYELINER AFTER CARE

Eyeliner, permanent makeup

The “after care” procedures are as important to the retention of the pigment as the actual implantation process.

 During this period, the primary objective is to allow the bonding process to be completely sealed inside the dermis. Your compliance will ensure that you receive maximum benefits from the procedure and reduce inconvenient follow-up visits.


Judgment of your results should be deferred until three to four weeks following the final procedure. Please remember, immediately following the procedure, your eyeliner can look harsh and painted on. It will soften up and look a lot more natural as it heals…please be patient! The intensity of the procedure is most prominent following the procedure itself. Over the next 3-7 days, the outer layer of color will appear crusty and start to flake off. Special care should be exercised while the treated area is healing. Under no circumstances should you pick, scratch or rub the treated area or attempt to remove the crusty material. Removing of the crusts may result in the removal of the actual pigment and/or infection may occur. It is important that this protective “cover” stay on during the healing process (three to seven days). As the outer layer flakes off, you will notice that the color is lighter and softer, and the treatment may appear to be slightly thinner than the original day of your procedure. For the following two weeks, color that was implanted under the skin will move forward. After three weeks, your healing process should be complete

Do not wear contact lenses for at least 48 hours following the procedure.
 


  • After you leave, ice packs can be applied for 10 to 15 minutes each hour for the first 4-8 hours following the procedure. The ice is used to reduce swelling and provide comfort. If you experience any residual swelling the following day, you may ice them again. After the first 24 hours the use of ice is no longer beneficial
  • All cleansing should be done with a clean Q-tip dipped in cool water and gently dabbed on the treated area. 
  • Do not rub the area in any way.




  • No soap, cleanser or shampoo on the treated area for seven (7) days.
  •  Soap and cleansers are designed to remove any foreign substances. 
  • Obviously, this is detrimental to the bonding process required for the pigment to become permanent.   


The day of the procedure:
 

  •  Use a fresh q-tip to apply Vaseline ointment, flip it and wipe off excess. You only need a light coat of ointment as a barrier so the skin can also breathe.

  • Eyes may be swollen and tender, this can last for a few days. Don’t worry about the swelling, your eyes will become much less swollen within a couple of hours with normal activity. You can do two, 10 minute ice packs today to help with swelling.
     

** In the morning, after cleaning, apply a 10 minute ice pack. They will be the most swollen and crusty the morning after the procedure. microblading eyebrows permanent makeup Westchase Tampa


First Two Week

image94

Your permanent cosmetic procedure was performed using a sterile single-use needle and high quality pigments. The end result of your procedure depends greatly on following this aftercare protocol. If you allow your eyeliner to dry out during the first few days you stand the chance of losing all or much of your eyeliner color. Please follow the instructions below unless otherwise instructed by a physician.
 

Don’t be alarmed at how dark the color looks right after the application. The final result will be lighter than it first appears. During the first two weeks some pigment may drop out or appear like it is flaking off, you will lose about 20% to 40% of your color. This is normal and can be filled in on the follow up touch up visit in about 4 to 6 weeks. You may not come in sooner for a touch up. Touch up done before 4 to 6 weeks will cause the skin to be overworked and scarring may develop. Everyone’s skin is different. Some people may lose more color then others. This is normal and means that the color will need to be adjusted to a darker color.

For the next 7 – 10 days:

image95

It’s very important to keep your eyes moist at all times with ointment. It is absolutely imperative that you do not let the eyeliner area dry out, as this will create dryness and scabbing, resulting in the loss of color and shading. It is best to apply the ointment approximately 3-4 times a day. Always use a fresh Q-tip with each application of ointment; this will reduce the risk of a secondary infection. (Remember to wipe off excess.)

 Be sure to put ointment on right before you go to bed at night, first thing when you wake up in the morning after cleaning and one to two more times during the day. Itching is also common but do not rub your eyes or pick at the eyeliner, if you notice a little lifting of color, let it fall off naturally.
 

Do put ointment on eyeliner area right before you shower or wash your face to help protect the area from soap and water. Then put ointment on again after you dry your face. Don’t use soap or cleansing products around your eyes, use Vaseline to remove eye makeup.
 

**All makeup used AROUND NOT ON the eyeliner must be NEW and bacteria free!! Old makeup can cause an infection. Make sure you have a thin coat of Vaseline on before you apply ANY makeup to create a barrier.
 

  • Do wear sunglasses when in the sun in order to protect the fresh color for the first two weeks.
     
  • Avoid tanning beds, the sun, pools, hot tubs, and any bodies of water, direct water pressure and all creams around the eye for two weeks.
     
  • Do not dye, perm, or use an eyelash curler for 2 weeks.
     
  • Do not take hot showers or baths and avoid heavy exercise, saunas, and hot tubs, as this will cause the color to sweat out of the skin.
    Don’t touch with fingers. Stay away from dirt (gardening or sport activities) to prevent possible infections.

Precautions

#lips blush permanent near me eyebrow Tampa #permanent Make up permanent eyeliner microblading near

  • If you are prone to getting cold sores, you will need an antiviral prescription. Physician usually instructs to begin taking it 3 days before procedure, for a 7-10 day course.
  • If you have had any type of lip surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent makeup procedure on the lips. If the lip surgery involves an incision (like a lip implant), the incision needs to mature about 6 months before tattooing on top of it.
  • Fillers: most physicians are giving a 3 week ok after lip filler injections like Collagen or Restylane.  Ask your permanent makeup artist and your doctor about timetables for procedures. 
  • Oral prosthesis dentures/ partials/ braces and tongue piercing bars may increase risk of getting bacterial and/or fungal infection from the mouth to the lips. Denture wearers generally carry a higher candida/ yeast count. 
  • Frequent or recent sinus infection puts lips at risk of infection. Recent antibiotic therapy can be responsible for a high candida count. Steroid medications and antacid drugs can allow candida to overpopulate. Smokers tend to have a high count also. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. 

Right After

#lips blush permanent near me eyebrow Tampa #permanent Make up permanent eyeliner microblading near

Right After 

  • Bruising on the inside of the lips is normal.
  • The feeling of burning on the tissue is normal and will normally stop in 24 hours. 
  • Your teeth may hurt from the pressure of hold the skin tight, this will also stop after 24 hours and is normal.
  • Do not apply any makeup around or on the lips until completely healed
  • If you do get fever blisters do not add any medications to the lip tissue or you can pull the color out of the tissue
  • Do not drink from any glass or soda can that you have not washed personally.
  • Healing can take 2-4 weeks depending on health conditions or fever blisters break out. 
  • Swelling, oozing, and some redness are normal the next day after the procedure for some clients. The use of Benadryl over the counter and keeping your face vertical is helpful.
  •  Shedding your color and outer epidermal skin is normal during the first 3-4 days following treatment.
  •  After you leave, I recommend that ice packs be applied for 10 to 15 minutes each hour for the first 4-8 hours following the procedure. The ice is used to reduce swelling and provide comfort. After the first 24 hours the use of ice is no longer beneficial. Old wives’ tale: Cooled used tea bags are also good for preventing swelling.
  • No soap, cleanser or shampoo on the treated area for seven (7) days. Soap and cleansers are designed to remove any foreign substances. Obviously, this is detrimental to the bonding process required for the pigment to become permanent. Toothpaste and mouthwash are considered “soap” and will remove lip color, so proceed with caution when using.


First Day

#lips blush permanent near me eyebrow Tampa #permanent Make up permanent eyeliner microblading near

  • All cleansing should be done with a clean Q-tip dipped in cool water and gently dabbed on the treated area. Do not rub the area in any way.
  • Apply A & D ointment with a Q-Tip in the procedure area for the first 24 hours. Then for the rest of the week apply Vitamin E oil or Liquid. Apply to the treatment area with a Q-tip several times per day (Do not use mineral oil or petroleum based products such as Vaseline.) This is to be done in a gentle dabbing motion as not to disrupt the pigmentation bonding process. This will keep the area moist and accelerate the healing. Do not let the area dry out, keep moist all times. Check your lips every thirty (30) minutes, re-apply ointment as necessary. Do not press or rub when applying ointment. Apply an extra heavy coat of ointment to the treated area before bedtime, bath, washing of adjacent areas, and immediately upon rising in the morning
  • Baths and showers are permitted but do not wash, scrub or touch the treatment area. Hot, steamy baths and showers should be avoided completely. After two weeks, you may resume all regular activities.
  • When brushing teeth for the first three (3) days, coat lips with a lot of ointment before brushing and use a minimal a mount of toothpaste.

Next Two Days

#lips blush permanent near me eyebrow Tampa #permanent Make up permanent eyeliner microblading near

  • For the first two (2) days, use a straw when drinking liquids; avoid sandwiches, biting into fruit or foods that might cause friction to the lips. Smoking is discouraged for optimal results.
  • Do not use any lipstick or cosmetics on or near the treated area for seven (7) days.
  •  The procedure, even after the first treatment, looks so natural that you can feel very secure appearing in public without any additional makeup on the affected area.
  • This rule applies also to non-allergic makeup, as it may contain chemicals that interfere with the bonding process. If or whenever you do begin using cosmetics again, invest in a new lipstick to support your new look. This will eliminate the possibility of bacteria breeding in an old container.

  • For at least two (2) weeks, you need to minimize exposure to the sun. I discourage swimming in fresh, salt or chlorinated pool water.
  • If needed, over-the-counter Tylenol is recommended for temporary relief of pain.
  • If you use Retin-A, do not allow it close to the treated area for thirty (30) days. It will cause the area to peel and lighten.
  • Since your procedure is facial, I recommend you sleep on a clean satin pillowcase for seven (7) nights. This will minimize the loss of pigmentation caused by rubbing against a cotton, textured pillowcase as you sleep.
  • Special care should be exercised while the treated area is healing. Under no circumstances should you pick, scratch or rub the treated area or attempt to remove the crusty material. Removing of the crusts may result in the removal of the actual pigment and/or infection may occur. It is important that this protective “cover” stay on during the healing process (three to six days).
  • Always use good health habits.
  • If you have any questions after you get home, feel free to call.
  • Variations to these recommendations are not encouraged and will most likely affect the final out come of your procedure, if not totally remove the implantations.
