Save time during your morning routine that would normally be spent filling in your brows.
Ashlene is an expert in the semi-permanent solution to their sparse or unshaped brows: microblading.
If you wish your morning routine were quicker, you’re definitely not the only one. In 2012, a survey conducted by YouGov found that 38 percent of women spend over a week’s worth of time each year “getting ready” in the mornings. Although this accounts for time such as showering or doing your hair, arguably the most common time eater is applying makeup. Within the last few years eyebrow makeup has become more trendy than ever; eyebrow pencils, powders, pomades and gels have completely taken the beauty industry by storm. In 2016, Canada saw a 42 percent growth in eyebrow makeup sales. The trend of skinny, over tweezed, 90s brows are long gone—full, natural-looking brows are in.
Draw the perfect brows every morning just to live in fear of smudging and rain is no longer necessary. Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup treatment that provides the look of fuller, defined brows. The meticulous process uses a delicate microblading pen to individually draw on hair-like strokes on top of your existing brow hairs or on your predetermined brow line.
With vast colour options, Ashlene can help choose the perfect pigment for your natural look. Similar to tattooing, the pigment lies under the superficial dermal layer of skin but it does not provide permanent results. The life of your microblading results depends on your skin how well it can retain the pigment; however results last approximately 12 to 18 months.
After an initial treatment, Ashlene will follow-up for a second touch up treatment, as pigment tends to fade significantly within the first month.To keep your brow game strong, it is recommended you come back for a touch up annually.
Ashlene’s Laser and Wax Studio’s founder and licensed esthetician, Ashlene French, strives to ensure each client is informed and comfortable throughout their entire microblading procedure (including before and after care). Ashlene suggests that the week prior to your appointment you avoid any fussing with your brows, including tweezing, threading, waxing. Eyebrow tinting can be performed up to four days prior to your microblading appointment. Also for at least two weeks prior to your treatments (initial and touch up), do not have any professional aesthetic treatments performed, such as chemical treatments, peels, facials or lasers.
After the skin surrounding your brows has been cleaned, a topical anesthesia will be applied to numb the area and ensure muscles are relaxed throughout the procedure. Brows must be kept as dry for the first seven to ten days post treatment. No swimming, sweating or submersion into water. Your hair and face can still be washed but with precaution. Also try your best to limit direct sun exposure.
