Microblading Treatment in Helena, MT

Natural looking, fuller eyebrows.

Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing technique used to enhance the appearance of eyebrows. It involves manually depositing pigment into the upper layers of the skin using a handheld tool with fine needles. Microblading aims to create natural-looking, fuller eyebrows by mimicking the appearance of individual eyebrow hairs.

Microblading results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on skin type, lifestyle, and individual skin regeneration. Periodic touch-up sessions are recommended to maintain the desired appearance of the eyebrows over time.

What should I expect during my microblading appointment?

Consultation: The process typically begins with a consultation to discuss desired eyebrow shape, thickness, and color.

Designing the Eyebrows: Using specialized tools, the aesthetician will measure and map out the desired eyebrow shape, considering your facial proportions and symmetry. This step ensures that the final result appears balanced and complements your features.

Numbing: Before the microblading procedure begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the eyebrow area to minimize discomfort.

Pigment Selection: The aesthetician will carefully select a pigment color that matches your natural eyebrow hair or achieves the desired result. This may include mixing different pigments to create a customized shade.

Microblading Technique: Using a handheld tool with a row of fine needles, the aesthetician will create small, precise incisions in the skin that resemble individual eyebrow hairs. The pigment is then deposited into these incisions, layering the hair-like strokes, giving the appearance of natural-looking eyebrow hair strokes.

Touch-Up Appointment: In your complimentary 6-8 week follow-up appointment, our aesthetician will assess the healed results and make any necessary adjustments or additions to the brows. This touch-up session helps to perfect the shape, color, and density of the eyebrows and ensures the longevity of the microblading results.

What does the microblading healing process include?

Microblading aftercare is crucial to ensure proper healing and maximize the longevity of your microbladed eyebrows. Be patient with the healing process. It’s normal for the microbladed area to go through various stages of healing, including scabbing, flaking, and color fading. Allow the brows to heal naturally and refrain from judging the final results until the healing process is complete, which can take several weeks. Additionally, we recommend adhering to the following post-procedure guidelines:

Keep the area clean: Gently clean the microbladed area twice daily using a mild, non-abrasive cleanser or a gentle cleansing wipe. Use clean hands or a clean cotton pad to avoid introducing bacteria to the area.

Avoid excessive moisture: Keep the eyebrows as dry as possible for the first 7 to 10 days after the procedure. Avoid activities that may cause excessive sweating, such as intense workouts, sauna sessions, or hot baths/showers. Also, avoid swimming and submerging your face in water.

Avoid touching or scratching: Refrain from touching, picking, or scratching the microbladed area, as this can disrupt the healing process and potentially remove pigment. It’s essential to let the scabs and flaking skin naturally slough off.

Apply aftercare ointment: Apply a thin layer of the recommended aftercare ointment or balm provided by your microblading artist to the eyebrows. The ointment helps keep the area moisturized and promotes proper healing.

Protect from sun exposure: Minimize sun exposure and avoid tanning beds during healing.

Avoid makeup and skincare products: Avoid applying makeup, creams, lotions, or any other skincare products directly on the microbladed area during the initial healing stage. These products can interfere with healing and may cause irritation or infection.
