Microblading & Microshading


How much time do you spend each day taking care of those shaggy brows? For many, it can be super quick; give a little fluff and be on your way. For others, it can take what seems like ages…the worst part is when you must start over, right? Well, if you are ready for a change, Avian Salon and Spa is here to help! We offer top of the line Microblading services upon appointment. Never heard of microblading?

It is a semi-permanent tattoo that not only helps define your brows but can also make them look fuller and darker. The process includes making small incisions within your eyebrow. There is a very small blade that is used, hence the name “microblade”. The blade includes rows of very tiny needles which are used to puncture the skin. Don’t worry, we will numb you up some first. Once the incisions are completed, your stylist will use a microblading specific ink and rub into the small incisions.

The stylist will match your natural color and make some changes as well to help with the all-natural look. After the ink is applied, there will be a small period of waiting. In that time, your stylist will go over the after-care process with you. Once time is up, the ink will be wiped away. You are then free to go about your day! Enjoy your new brows and show them off!

Microblading and Microshading After Care

Microblading post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. Do not let any water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during the first 10 days after your procedure. Days 3-10, apply healing balm 2x a day. After 14 days, you may use pencil, pomade, etc.

The following must be avoided during all 14 days post- procedure:

  • Increased sweating
  • Practicing sports
  • Swimming
  • Hot sauna, hot bath, or Jacuzzi
  • Sun tanning or salon tanning
  • UV/UVA Rays or chemicals as they have been known to cause a shift in color and premature fading
  • Any laser or chemical treatments or peelings, and/or any creams containing Retin-A or Glycolic acid on the face or neck
  • Picking, peeling, or scratching of the micro pigmented area in order to avoid scarring of the area or removal of the pigment
  • Performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or basement cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris
  • Drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds
  • Driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles

Please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. During the shower, keep your face away from the showerhead or take a bath.
If you have bangs, keep them pinned back.

You must sleep on your back or try to avoid having your face rub against the pillow/blankets.
Itching and flaking may appear during the first seven days post-microblading/microshading procedure. However, experience has shown that by following these after-care instructions, these symptoms may quickly disappear.

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing of the skin, please contact Avian Salon and Spa immediately to discuss further instructions.

Contact a physician if any signs or symptoms develop such as the following: fever, redness at the site, swelling, tenderness of the procedure site, elevated body temperature, red streaks going from the procedure site towards the heart, and/or any green/yellow discharge that is foul in odor.


What to Expect During and After Your Microblading Session

Entire healing process will take from 4-6 weeks depending on your body regeneration and age. Your new eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle. The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day. Note that because of natural skin regeneration, after recovery period (peeling), brows might appear lighter than original.

This might give you the impression that color is fading too quickly. Often even with proper care, clients may lose original hairstrokes which make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal. That’s is the reason why most customers need a touchup after 6 weeks.

Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. The final look of your eyebrows will be apparent approximately 30 days after your procedure. Never rub the treated area as it will disturb the skin from natural healing.

Once completely healed, always apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when exposed to the sun. Sun exposure might cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly. When using foundation, be aware when applying to avoid your healed eyebrows. If foundation covers healed brows, your eyebrows will appear lighter.
You can now enjoy your beautiful new temporary eyebrows.
