WHAT IS IT?: Microfeathering is Kristie Streicher’s signature form of Microblading. Microfeathering utilizes precise "hair-like" incisions that deposit dye in the top layer of the brow skin (also known as the epidermis). The process is achieved without the use of machines or traditional tattoo guns. After numbing the area with a topical cream, small incisions are created by hand, using a fine and very precise blade. Pigment is then deposited into the incisions, resulting in an incredibly natural appearing "eyebrow hair."
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT? We require all clients start by seeing a Nurtured Brow specialist prior for a consultation. In most cases, a brow growth and cultivation plan will be necessary. This is how we achieve the natural and beautiful results for which Microfeathering® is known.
CAN ANYONE GET MICROFEATHERING? If you have had any previous semi- permanent make up in the brow area, you will need to wait until it has completely faded. *Ask about our Pigment Removal Service.
WHAT TO EXPECT? The semi- permanent hair stokes fade gradually over the course of 12-18 months. Touch-ups every 7-9 months are reccomended to keep brows looking fresh and consistent.
IS THERE DOWNTIME? There is no formal downtime after Microfeathering. Your newly Microfeathered eyebrows will look a shade or two darker for the first few days, then lighten within the first week. To help the healing process after treatment, I recommend keeping thin layers of Aquaphor and SPF 30+ on the brows at all times. You will need to keep exercise and excessive sweating to a minimum for at least one week, or some pigment may fade or be lost. Alpha Hydroxy acid products, retinoids, and any exfoliating treatments (such as microdermabrasion) should be avoided no less than 2 weeks prior to Microfeathering. Chemical/laser peels or Botox treatments should be avoided for no less than 6 weeks prior to Microfeathering.
