We are beyond thrilled to announce the availability of microblading at Spa One! Amanda Filli, our certified makeup and lash specialist who also happens to be Spa One’s brow goddess and is already well-versed in featherstroke eyebrow tattooing is now offering microblading!
For those of you who don’t know, microblading is a form of semi-permanent eyebrow feathering that uses a tool consisting of 6-14 micro needles in the shape of a blade. The application technique is designed to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hairs by creating the appearance of extremely fine and natural looking hair strokes. This type of dermal pigmentation ages back thousands of years and is a form of traditional Japanese tattooing methods.
Microblading differs from permanent tattooing as it only penetrates the upper layers of the skin and it can be less painful than tattooing. It is also done a lot faster and has a lower risk of scarring. While it can provide sharper and crisper hair strokes compared to tattooing, it won’t last as long. Microblading will fade dramatically within 18 months, and in some cases it will leave the skin altogether.
Most microblading sessions take about 2 hours to perform. We start by applying a numbing cream to the area to help desensitize and control any discomfort. After the client is numb, we will stencil in the shape and width of the brow based on the client’s expectations. We recommend that you stay out of direct sunlight for the first 2 weeks and you will need to keep the brow area dry for the first week. There will be some minor redness and mild discomfort after the treatment. About 3-4 weeks after your initial session we will want you to come back in for a touch-up session which usually takes about an hour. Microblading prices will vary but typically starts at $600 which includes your first and second session.
How do do you know if you’re a good fit for microblading?
- Are you tired of drawing on your brows every morning before you leave the house?
- Does the thought of sweating or swimming give you a jolt of anxiety as your brows wipe right off?
- Are you just not good at makeup and want a natural looking arched brow?
- Do you have medical problems such as alopecia or hair loss?
