About Microblading/Micropigmentation

What is Microblading and Micropigmentation?

Microblading and micropigmentation is achieved by implanting colour micro-pigment beneath the top layer of the skin into the second layer by means of a tiny, sterile and disposable needle.

It is a special aesthetic treatment used to correct, modify, beautify and balance features semi- permanently. The results are tailored to your preference of defined or natural features to enhance your unique face shape.

It can be used to modify non-existent or sparse eyebrows, correct droopy eyelids, create symmetrical features for brows or lips, camouflage scars and stretch marks, refine wrinkles, and restore the look of scalp and nipple areolae pigment.

Is Microblading/Micropigmentation painful?

Individual pain tolerance varies, depending on your personal sensitivity. However, there is a topical numbing agent (5% lidocaine) applied before and during the treatment to minimize discomfort.

Clients have related the procedure with eyebrow plucking or threading.

You may experience more sensitivity if the procedure is performed during your menstrual cycle.

Is it safe?

The studio is Alberta Health and Safety Service approved for tattooing. As well, the studio only practices with single use disposable needles and supplies.

Each set up for a new client is safely discarded after the procedure and the station is thoroughly disinfected with medical grade wipes after each client and through out the day.

Are there any potential side effects or allergic reactions?

It is possible to experience immediate or delayed allergic reactions following the procedure.

Potential allergic reactions are typically attributable to the following components utilized for the procedure:

Bacitracin: A component of the antibiotic ointment. Have you experienced any allergies to antibiotic ointments used at home?

Novocain, Lidocaine, and Epinephrine: Anesthetics that may cause reactions when used topically or given by injection. Any problems with anesthetics during dental visits?

Pigment: The pigment can cause reactions because it is being imbedded under the dermal layer of the skin.

Needles: Needles are made of metal. Needles that are made of Nickel can cause an allergic reaction in clients who are allergic to this metal.

If you are sensitive to or have experienced allergic reactions to the following substances, it is possible a reaction could occur following the procedure. Call your doctor immediately if there’s any experience of burning, stinging, extreme tenderness or redness, skin rash, or hives. If you have allergies, a patch test is performed at least 1 Month prior to procedure. However, an allergy test does not guarantee a client will not have an allergic reaction after the full procedure.
