Welcome to Brow Rehab, here you'll find all you need to know about Microblading. Please read along to find out what to expect at your appointment and if you're a good candidate.
Microblading, also known by a variety of names such as embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes, is a form of semi-Permanent Makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.
1. What is the process?
– Microblading is a technique of implanting pigment into the skin in ‘hairlike’ strokes. There are several ways of going about this service but we’ve had great experience with our specific style of microblading. Clients book online (books up quickly so it’s great to pre-plan). At appointment we clean the skin, measure the face/brow, fill in the brow area with suggested shape/size/etc, hair style, and finally color of ‘hair’. Once all the important decisions are made we get to it! We basically scratch the surface to lightly break the skin for pigment and highly active numbing cream to penetrate the skin, which sits on for 15-20 mins. We then clean off the area to add more layers and deeper pressure. This part is almost painless. After all that its the big reveal!

Is Microblading Right for Me?
SKIN CONDITIONS (FACE ONLY)
- Skin Complications - If you have skin which is prone to complications with eczema, psoriasis, keratosis pilaris and dermatitis (i.e., your skin is constantly flaking, itching, or aggravated), chances are your skin is in a is in a constant state of unrest and shedding and is not suitable for tattooing and therefore won’t hold the pigment well.
- Chronic Conditions - The same goes for conditions like chronic acne and rosacea. The inherent nature of this type of skin causes easy bleeding, which once again means your skin will not retain the color very well and intended effect of microblading. Additionally, excessively oily skin can cause those tattooed hair strokes to blur together and give off an unwanted solid effect instead of a naturally feathered look.
