Naturally, Beautiful Brows! Microblading in Parksville, BC.

Elegance Sculpting is the clear choice for microblading in Parksville, BC. Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing treatment used to fill in sparse eyebrows or reshape the brow area. Trained technicians apply semi-permanent pigment to the skin around the eyebrows using a handheld needle tool, using delicate brush-like strokes to fill them in. This technique allows for greater control compared to traditional tattooing guns, giving completely natural-looking results that last.

What Is Microblading

Microblading is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, to enhance the natural brow and give a fuller, more defined appearance. However, microblading can also help those who do not have brow hairs due to hair-loss conditions (such as alopecia) or those who are about to lose their brow hair for medical reasons (such as chemotherapy). As a semi-permanent treatment, microblading is an effective solution for those who tire of filling in sparse or non-existent brown daily.

What To Expect From Microblading?

The complete microblading procedure takes no more than one hour to complete, while the results will last for up to 18 months. Before treatment begins, our expert technician will walk you through the procedure and work with you to pick out the perfect brow shape and pigment colour to best suit your complexion. After ensuring the area is cleaned and sterilized, a numbing agent is applied to increase the comfort of the procedure. Once treatment is complete, our technician will walk you through a comprehensive aftercare program and answer any of your questions. A follow up treatment will be necessary approximately four to six weeks after, as pigment will significantly fade during this time. After the second treatment, your eyebrows will stay put for over a year.

Microblading Aftercare

The Treatment Day

Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this for the full day until any potential oozing has stopped (not everyone experiences it). Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.

First Week Post-Treatment

Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin—Don’t worry….THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT! Gently and with a very light touch, wash your eyebrows each morning and night with your fingertips, water and an antibacterial soap (we recommend Dial, Cetaphil or Neutrogena). Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue or soft towel. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.

Second Week Post-Treatment

Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area in the morning, afternoon if the brows are dry and before bed. It. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important Reminders

– ​Use a fresh pillowcase

– Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away.

– Picking can cause scarring or loss of color. If a scab falls off and the pigment disappears, don’t worry, it will reappear within the week.

– Pigment will feel dark and area may be a bit swollen. The color will fade 20-40% in the first 7-10 days. It is common for the hair strokes to look more solid as they heal.

– No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for four weeks.

– Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for four weeks after procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.

– Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days.

– Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.

– Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs for the first 10 days.

– Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area.

Important Note About Showering

Limit your showers to five minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/treatment area out of the water while you wash your body then at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. Putting a thin layer of ointment on brows before showering is recommended.

Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine you will have much better results with your microblading procedure.

*Individual results may vary, depending on skin, and proper aftercare.*
