What is Microblading?

dermica 3D SCULPT

What is Microblading?

One of our much loved sculpt clients recently booked herself in for the 3D SCULPT. In her booking, she attached a question that we thought many of you might be wondering. So, with her approval, we have decided to publish for you all.

Q: What exactly is involved in the 3D Sculpt….should I be scared?

A: The 3D SCULPT is basically a type of tattoo, but instead of applying solid ink, we make small incisions which look like hair strokes in the skin and deliver tint into the incisions.

A little blood is drawn and the procedure has to be done safely, precisely, and in a clean environment. The esthetician has to keep everything sanitized while using proper techniques and pressure so as to not go too deep into the skin (going too deep would make it a permanent tattoo). In addition, the esthetician has to create an immaculate brow shape and stick to the predetermined design (approved by you) before we make any incisions (since it is long lasting). It requires high levels of competency and talent.

It is scary if you don’t know what to expect from the esthetician doing your 3D SCULPT, but you know us and you know the kind of work we do, so you have nothing to fear! Also, we use an anesthetic gel to make the procedure as painless as possible. Everybody is different, but the last client we had for the 3D SCULPT said she felt no pain at all :)

Also, with the post care we provide, we help prep your skin and take good care of it after so you heal properly which will maximize the longevity of your 3D SCULPT and also recover your skin from the damage it endures in that area during the procedure.

Max amount of active healing time is 10 days, your brows will fade a little and they will look very natural (if the right colour is chosen). During the healing process, your skin will shed around your brows a little. The 2nd day is the worst I would say, after that it starts showing improvement. Expect your brows to be a little itchy as they heal.

I hope this puts your mind at ease :) Let us know if you have any other questions.

Love, Peace, and Great Skin!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Moms who like to Maintain their Appearance

My mother is like that. She’s always cared about her appearance and I admire her for that. Though she’s just a few months away from retirement, her skin still looks relatively tight and definitely smooth.

If you have this kind of mother, here are a few gift ideas that will tickle her pink!

For the mom that LOVES to try skincare products

If you want to give your mom’s skin a boost of radiance, she’ll love the DAILY POWER C ! Her glow will leave her friends thinking she’s been vacationing on a tropical island.

A high dose of Vitamin C help transforms the skin’s clarity leaving the skin bright AND strong!💪💪

If your mom’s skin is dry, she needs tall drink of water! Hey, don’t we all ☺ But seriously, what we mean is that her skin needs instant hydration. Glo’s DAILY HYDRATION prevents water loss using hyaluronic acid as the main ingredient.
Check out our online store for more selection.

SIMPLE IDEAS

How are your mother’s lashes and brows?

As a result of aging, our hair starts thinning out after a certain age. If your mother is like mine, she would love to have thicker lashes and fuller brows. Personally, I love the idea of being able to grant my mom this wish.

I gave her EyEnvy® three months ago and we both see changes in her lashes. She says that her curl lasts all day after curling her lashes, whereas before she would have to recurl throughout the day.

I see the changes when I sit across from her at the dinner table. I can actually see my mom’s lashes! She has a bit of her youth back. I’m glad I could do that for her. EyEnvy® works on eyebrows too.

About those brows…


If your mom’s thing is her brows, she’ll love Glo’s Microliner. This brow pencil is easy to use and lasts all day.

Or better yet, BOOK her in for a brow Sculpt. This wax and tint job leaves brows looking natural yet “sculpted”. Brows have the ability to give a younger appearance through shaping.

FOR ALL MOMS

You can’t go wrong with a Mother’s Day Spa Package. Dérmica is creating this package for a limited time. The Spa Package includes an express BOOST facial and 30 minute Swedish Relaxation Massage, plus a glo gift.

Healing After Microblading

3d sculpt microblading dermica-split-face_before-and-after_2

Healing after your procedure

Microblading is a semi-permanent brow treatment that requires minimum down time. Healing can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual. You may encounter the following indications as you heal:

Clotting and Scabbing

The procedure involves the technician making tiny incisions 2-3 layers into the skin, using a microblading tool. Your skin’s natural response to this action is bleeding from the site of incision; the amount of bleeding depends on your skin and any underlying conditions.

As the procedure carries on, the blood becomes thickened and soon forms a clot. This process is known as coagulation and it is your bodies’ way of blocking the flow of blood. This thickened blood then forms the scab that encloses the small incisions and protects them during the early stages of healing. At this point your brows begin to look darker and may appear raised due to the scabs forming.

Swelling and Secretion

Following your procedure you may experience slight swelling and secretion in the treated area. The swelling is a response to the increased blood and fluid circulating in the wound. Blood has many components that carry vital nutrients, antibodies, oxygen, and hormones to the fresh wound. The plasma component of the blood aids in clotting and also moves waste material away from the wound during the healing.

You may experience slight secretion of clear fluid from your brows; this is normal and begins to subside within 24 hours following your procedure. If necessary you can gently blot the brows with a clean gauze or tissue to absorb the excess fluid. Cleanse the brow area twice daily by first dabbing them clean using a dampened cotton or gauze pad. Then, lightly rub a dab of your cleanser over the brows using your ring fingers only, gently blot away cleanser using clean dampened cotton or gauze pad. Apply moisturizer daily and as needed throughout the day to prevent excessive drying and provide added protection. Remember to wash your hands before cleaning your brows ☺

Growth and Repair

During the growth and recovery stage, the scabs that protected the open wound will begin to shed thereby exposing fragile skin. The overall brow colour will appear patchy as the dark scabs fall revealing the lighter tone underneath. The exposed skin may appear thinner and slightly pink while it is re-building.

Your skin forms a network of collagen fibres that support the new layers of skin cells, as the new skin layers build, the pink colouring will fade along with the pigment of your brows. The length of time the skin takes to build back the layers of skin ranges depending on the overall health of the skin prior to procedure and how closely post-care instructions are followed. In most cases the growth and repair process ranges from 4-12 weeks. A cooling mask, such as the Cucumber Recovery Mask can help nourish and soothe the fresh cells after your microblading has fully shed.

Recovery and Refresher

Once your brows have fully recovered, the pigment will once again resurface revealing their true colour, the strokes will also appear more defined and realistic. It is recommended that you wait until all visible signs of the healing process have subsided before following up with your Refresher session.

Daily application of a serum, such as the Corrective Soothing serum after moisturizing strengthens the skin and accelerates the recovery process. Tracking your progress on a weekly basis during the recovery period will ensure that your microblading is healing as expected and provide the necessary information for your technician when selecting a date for your Refresher session.

Ensure you book your Refresher before your brows reach a 40% fade. A minimum of 40% of the initial shape must be present for your Refresher. This time varies per person. Overextending the re-booking period may cause you to lose the outlining shape from your initial session for the technician to follow. If this is the case a complete microblading session may be necessary.
