PMU

What is Microblading?


Microblading is a form of semi permanent tattoo. Tiny needles that make up a blade deposit pigment under the skin. The pigment's main ingredient is iron, which your body naturally produces and absorbs. Over time, your tattoo will fade and be absorbed, which is why it is not permanent.

Brow healing process


Why do my brows look red? The red tone is caused from irritation and inflamation of the skin which can have lingering effects as a result of your service. My brows are scabbing, is this normal? Yes, scabbing is absolutely normal. Permanent Makeup services cause your body to go into protection mode (think about when you scrape your knee and your body goes into protection mode to begin the healing process; this is the same sort of reaction). It is also normal for your body to not scab. The results depend on your skin type and cycle and will contribute to the amount of scabbing, if any at all. My scabs fell off and my brows look red, why? The redeness is a result of inflammation and will pass as your body begins to fully heal. Why did my brows disappear? As the healing process continues, new skin forms over the wound. As the new skin forms it may appear as though your brows have disappeared, but really the pigment just needs time to resurface. Your brows will re-appear as you further along into the healing process. Is it normal for my brows to heal at different times? Your brows are not the same before the process. In most cases, we need to do completely different things to each brow in order to achieve symmetry. As a result, you will notice that your brows may heal independently and at a different rate. For example, if one tail requires more work than the other, you may notice that the one tail requiring more work has significantly more inflammation and irration in comparison to the other tail. Likewise, if one brow requires more work at the head than the other you can expect that brow to have more inflammation and irritation than the other.
