Microshading is a gentler version of microblading and is a semi-permanent makeup technique for sparse, light-colored, or over-plucked brows.
What to Expect During Your Microshading Treatment
Microshading is recommended for people who just want a little oomph, as opposed to a total brow makeover. Unlike microblading, microshading fills in brows with tiny, pin-like dots in a gradient pattern rather than natural hair strokes. Since microshading requires much smaller incisions, it is less likely to cause irritation in people with sensitive skin. The small, pin-point dots in microshading are subtler and not suited for making big adjustments to shape. Because of its signature gradient appearance, microshading is often referred to as “ombré brows” or “powder fill brows.”
Are touchups necessary?
The first microshading appointment is about structure, design, and building hairstrokes. The touch-up is utilized to see how the skin heals and retains pigment, as well as making any necessary adjustments to achieve better symmetry, definition, or volume.
Most clients require a touch-up appointment within 6 weeks to no later than 8 weeks of the initial proceodure to fill in any areas of the skin that may not have fully retained the pigment — this is completely normal and to be expected. The touch-up takes approximately 1-2 hours and is not included in the price of your initial procedures.
Some may even require a 3rd session to complete the process— especially if you have little to no hair to begin with, have scar tissue, oily skin, or are trying to cover up an old tattoo.
