HAMMAM SPA INTRODUCES MICROBLADING
It doesn’t matter if you like them arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature. If you’re not satisfied with the ones you have, there are so many ways to update them, including brow gel, pencils, and even tattooing. Now there’s a new, very natural option that delivers semi-permanent results. It is called microblading. Microblading is an embroidery of small, precise strokes that mimic the effect of real hairs, and uses a special microblading pen with an end made of needles, that puts the pigment into the skin to individually draw on the strokes.
Microblading is for those women that may need to reconstruct eyebrows, fill in gaps or plucked eyebrows, or simply define them. You may expect and desire the perfect brow. To be realistic it may take a few appointments to obtain the desired brow look.
It’s an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete. Time is spent with your technician to design your desired arch and look. Then the pigment color is picked with you and your technician to arrive at your precise color desired. The results will last anywhere from 18 months to 3 years, depending on the person’s skin.
Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. There could be some discomfort, but most people say they felt no pain. It is normal for the initial pigmentation to be darker, but will fade and look more natural in a few days. After 4-6 weeks there is a session for a touch up. This is necessary to finish the final desired look.
Unlike eyebrow extensions in which you have to be careful about maintaining, microblading is low maintenance. After healing, you can rub them and enjoy swimming. No special care is required, expect the touch up done in 4-6 weeks.
There is a dedicated room for the microblading. The room is maintained in a sanitary manner. Strict sanitation and sterilization guidelines are fallowed. Technicians use gloves, mask, hair net, and sanitary robe. All instruments that enter the skin, or come into contact, with body fluids, are disposable, and disposed of after use. Cross contamination guidelines are carefully adhered to.
Touch Up: Touch up is the second phase the treatment of Microblading, this usually happens after about 4-6 weeks, as soon as the pigment and color settle in the client’s treated brow area. At this time any dark pigment from the initial result of Microblading fades by 30-50%, and scabs might have healed.
It is very IMPORTANT to complete the touch up treatment, without this, your Microbladed eyebrow is considered half finished, and you cannot expect the maximum result of the procedure. Failure to do the touch up session will result in an unfinished- look in the pigment of the brow, and will not give you the maximum results you desire.
Leading up to your appointment, you should avoid plucking or waxing your brows because your technician will be making your new brow shape based on current measurements they will make before starting your procedure. You should also avoid using exfoliants 72 hours before the treatment, like skincare products containing glycolic acid, Retin A, Renova, and alpha hydroxy acids, since they may inflame the skin. You should discontinue taking medications such as blood thinners. Pregnant or nursing women cannot do the procedure.
