Microblading, Semi-Permanent and Permanent Makeup Solutions
for Women & Men

Microblading

What is Microblading

Microblading is a permanent makeup process of the implantation of pigment into the second layer of the skin, creating little hair strokes into the eyebrow.  Microblading was originally founded in Asia for cancer patients who had gone through chemotherapy and lost a significant amount of eyebrow hair.   These days microblading eyebrows and hairline is done to enhance beauty and practicality.  


Benefits of permanent makeup and microblading:


  • Saves you time to get ready in the morning.  
  • Gives those with skin diseases like alopecia or hair loss secondary to chemo a natural looking brow and hairline.
  • Does not smudge or smear off, even with exercise for those with an active lifestyle.
  • No upkeep.
  • Lasts up to 3 years.
  • Pigment does not change color, only loses saturation.
  • You'll have blueprint for your eyebrows.
  • Saves you money in a long term.  

Microblading is very safe in the hands of a professional/certified microblading practitioner. It is minimally invasive and has very little down time!

At Maya Microblading we use this mathematical technique along with the latest in equipment to achieve your perfect look.

Step-by-Step Procedure for microblading

1. CONSULTATION


We go through a thorough consultation before starting the microblading procedure. We believe the consultation is the most important part of the procedure and makes up about 90% of it.


We ask clients to complete some forms such as Informed Consent form, Consent to Application of Permanent Makeup Procedure, and Confidential Medical Profile.  These forms are downloadable for you to review.  Please  text our clinic to be granted access. 


During the consultation, we ask clients to show us any photos they like, don’t like and/or how they normally draw on their eyebrows to get an idea of the client’s unique style.


Please send photos of your current eyebrows areas to info@mayamicroblading.com or SMS (916) 272-6338.


2. SHAPE AND COLOR (Eyebrows Only)


Our microbladist will measure all the points of the client’s face with a ruler to ensure symmetry and precision. Once our microbladist finds what she needs to make a perfect pair of eyebrows, she begins designing based on the client’s natural eyebrow hair and their desired look. This is all done with a pencil first to ensure that the shape can be adjusted, if needed, before the procedure starts. 


Once our client approves the shape drawn, a color is selected among the microbladist and client. Our microbladist will swatch colors on the forehead based on their natural eyebrow color and the client’s unique style. 


3. NUMBING


We want to ensure your utmost comfort so we apply a topical numbing cream for 20-30 minutes before your procedure. We place it on top of the outline and cover it with saran wrap to seal in the numbing as much as possible. 


4. MICROBLADING PROCEDURE


Only after the client has approved the shape and/or color and the numbing is completed, then we proceed with the microblading procedure. That's when the magic happens. Our microbladist will open a sterile needle in front of the client and start the microblading procedure. Pigment is then implanted into the skin in a form of hair strokes to give it the illusion of real fine hair. Numbing is applied throughout the procedure to ensure the utmost comfort. 


5. REVEAL


Once the microblading procedure is complete, the big reveal happens. We show our client their new beautiful set of eyebrows and ask the client if they would like to make any adjustments before they leave.


We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction so we always make sure you walk out the door happy. 

IMPORTANT: Read Pre & Post Procedure Care Sheet

Procedure Care

PRE-PROCEDURE CARE

All permanent cosmetic procedures are multi-session processes. You are required to come back for at least one perfecting visit before it can be determined that your work is complete. Perfecting and touch-up visits are scheduled from four to eight week intervals.


Be prepared for the color intensity of your procedure to be significantly larger, sharper, brighter or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. It will take time for this transition, based on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.


While these injected tones may initially simulate the exact color and tone desired, it will not always remain a perfect match. Injected tones are constant, while your own skin tones will vary depending on exposure to cold, heat, sun, and circulatory changes. For example, if you tan your skin and had a scar camouflaged, your surrounding skin will be darker in appearance than the treated area.


Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly or redden, some clients feel it best not to make any social plans for a day or two following any procedure. Wear your normal makeup and bring your lip or brow pencils to the office on the day of the procedure.


Permanent makeup is not recommended for clients who have the following:

  1. Diabetes
  2. Viral Infections or disease
  3. Epilepsy
  4. Pacemaker
  5. Organ Transplant
  6. Skin conditions (sunburns, rashes, acne etc.)
  7. Sick
  8. Botox in the past 2 weeks

Proper preparation of your skin for a microblading or tattooing procedure is a critical factor in color retention. Results may vary according to skin type, lifestyle and other external factors. Carefully follow each step below for the best results:


-14 Days-

Discontinue Retin-A and Glycolic Acids.

Avoid injectables such as Botox, Dysport, even with fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane.


-7 Days-

Do not tan.

Discontinue use of blood thinning products, unless prescribed by a doctor (Ex: Aspirin, Vitamin A, Vitamin E).


-5 Days-

Discontinue electrolysis.


-2 Days-

Do not groom brow hair by waxing, tweezing or threading.


-1 Day-

Avoid caffeine (coffee, tea, soda, diet pills, etc.)

Avoid alcohol.


-Day of Procedure-

Refrain from vigorous exercise. 

POST-PROCEDURE CARE

Permanent Makeup (PMU) or cosmetic tattoo and microblading creates a wound to the skin, so you need to treat it like a wound and keep it clean and prevent excessive stress to the healing area.  Proper care after a microblading or tattooing procedure is a critical factor in color retention. Follow each step below carefully to ensure the best results. 


What to Expect After the Procedure


  • Slight swelling
  • Thickness and/or redness for 2-3 days
  • Scabbing for 7-10 days
  • Color darkening (due to scabbing) for 1-2 weeks
  • Slight itchiness for sensitive skin
  • Discoloration or light spots. These will be addressed in the touch up.
  • Scabs will fall off naturally like dandruff. DO NOT PICK AT SCABS.
  • An annual color boost is recommended to keep the shape and color fresh. 
  • If the skin breaks out into a rash, this is a reaction to the numbing solution and will resolve itself within two week.

Immediately Following Procedure


I love a good acronym so here’s one to help you out, just think of  A - W - M which stands for Absorb, Wash, and Moisturize!


In the first 48 HOURS after the procedure, scabs will naturally form on the brows or hairlines to protect the skin during this time. 


Absorb (Day of)

  • After the procedure, gently blot the area with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid.
  • Do this every 5 minutes until the oozing has stopped.
  • Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymphatic fluids.
  • On your way home, gently blot the area with gauze & distilled water (provide).   If you are sent home with pigment on your brows/hairlines, gently wipe the pigment off with a clean, wet gauze after one hour. Proceed with the remaining healing instructions. 

Wash (Days 1-7)

  • Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don't worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)
  • Gently wash the area each morning and night with water and gentle soap or an unscented cleanser like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or baby shampoo.  With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the area.
  • 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. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.

Moisturize and hydrate (Days 1-7)

  • Apply a tiny, rice grain amount of Aquaphor/healing ointment (provided) 3 times a day with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area.
  • Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The product should be barely noticeable on the skin.
  • NEVER put the product on a wet or damp tattoo.


Important Reminders


  • Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color.
  • No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure.  Wear a hat when outdoors.
  • Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days,
  • Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
  • DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.


Important Instructions for Showering


  • Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure 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 only at the end of the shower.  
  • Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

Color Maintenance (Microblading, Permanent Makeup, Cosmetic Tattoo)

Touch Up

All microblading and permanent makeup is a multisession process, meaning, touch ups are necessary. 


Think of this as the second coat of nail polish, the first one is alright, but the second or third one seals the deal. This session is done 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure. At this session, our client and artist will go over any concerns they may have had during the healing, fill in any areas that may have faded or simply go thicker or darker than the first time!


We go conservative on the first session to ensure the client is satisfied so adding on the touch up is a piece of cake! Again, procedure steps are followed on the touch up and make sure the client leaves satisfied. 

Annual Color Boost

Non-Refundable consultation fee is required when booking this service which goes towards the final cost.


Please consult with technician for pricing if prior microblading or tattoo work is present.


Price depends on level of work needed. It is recommended to do this under 18 months to ensure the brow holds its shape.

Sterilization & Sanitation

We take health seriously. We uphold the highest safety standards and raise the bar on education and safety to benefit our clients, artists/technicians, and anyone who walks through our doors. 


We believe that being a microblading/permanent makeup artist is a profession of care and there are unique safety standards required in order to perform our services. With that in mind, we warrant that our studio is blood borne pathogens certified according to state regulations.  We go above and beyond to make sure our studio is the safest it can be and can be noticed as soon as you walk through our doors. 


Tools and Supplies


We use 100% disposable tools, never to be reused on another client. 


Hand Washing


We are required to wash hands for at least 20 seconds before/after procedures. 


Cleansers and Disinfectants 


We use medical grade cleansers, barrier film and autoclave that keeps all bloodborne pathogens at bay to ensure the safety of our staff and clients. Our needles are properly disposed in an FDA approved sharps container, never to be reused. After each procedure, we are required to properly dispose all tools and wipe down our station with medical grade cleansers. Anything we might have touched throughout the procedure must be wiped down with this medical grade cleanser. New barrier film is replaced on any tool made out of plastic to make sure no contamination occurs. Anything made from metal (such as tweezers, scissors, etc…) are placed in barbicide and put into the autoclave to be sterilized. 


Needles  


We use only the best tools on our clients. The Harmony microblade by Tina Davies is our most trusted microblade on the market. All Harmony microblades are 100% disposable, and have been pre sterilized using EO Gas. Each needle is individually packaged and has a unique lot number and sterilization date. You can even download the certification of sterilization using the needle’s lot number to ensure your needles are in fact sterile. 


Plastic


Plastic can not be sanitized, therefore anything that is plastic used during our procedures is disposed or wrapped in barrier film that is replaced after each procedure. We cover our chairs and trays in plastic and replace them after each procedure. 


Gloves


We are required to wear gloves throughout the entire procedure. Any time an artist removes her gloves, she is to wash her hands, and put on a fresh pair of gloves, never use the same pair twice. No artist is allowed to leave the procedure room with gloves on, even if they are clean. No gloves means hands are clean, making it safe to walk around our studio. 


Drawing Tools


We use a black China marker to outline the brow design. The pencil is pre-sterilized before touching a client’s face and is wrapped in barrier film. After each procedure, artists are required to sharpen the pencil by shaving off any part that touched a client’s skin. This prevents any cross contamination. 


Double Dipping


NEVER! No one is allowed to ever double dip. If an artist needs more product of any kind, they are required to use a new disposable tool. 

We will never put your and our health at risk, meaning we are a little extra when it comes to sanitation and sterilization.
