3D Brows & Microblading Basics

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. But now there's a very natural option that delivers semi-permanent results. Ladies, 3D Volume Lash & Brow Studio would like to introduce you to microblading. Unlike the sometimes Sharpie-esque effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of an embroidery ofstrokes that look just like real hairs.

Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows. Those who just want to add a slight arch are also great candidates, and the results are a natural, undetectable fringe.

 

If you're still not sure how the technique differs from tattooing, during the microblading process we use a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one. It's an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete. Since the results will last for up to three years before beginning to fade it's good to know that your technician pays so much attention to detail. During the first hour the shape is drawn in with removable pencil. That’s the longest part and the most important step. During this time, the best customized shape for every client is chosen. It is not a rushed procedure and cannot be done in an hour.

Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. If you're worried that the process is painful, some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it's relatively painless.

 

The best part about the technique is that there is no down time. Your new set of brows will be ready for a selfie immediately after the process. We do, however, recommend a follow-up 3 weeks to one month after your appointment. The healing process is different for everyone, and it takes between 21 and 30 days. After a month, a 40-minute touch-up may be recommended.

Unlike eyebrow extensions, 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, except for a brief touch-up once a year." The smudge-proof solution will cost you anywhere between $225 and $400. But waking up every morning with perfect brows may totally be worth it.
