Microblading in Edmonton
Dérmica has over 5 years of experience in microblading in Edmonton.

Researching spas that offer microblading in Edmonton is important. Microblading and brow tattooing is an art form that requires special attention to detail and practice. It can take years to master this popular service and art form. 

Faces come in different shapes, colours, and features, making each service an opportunity to enhance techniques. Brow artists develop their signature style and technique that draws clients with similar vision. 

Doing your research and finding the right artist or clinic to suit your needs will make all the difference when attaining your desired look. 

Read on as we define the dérmica microblading service and see if we are your place in Edmonton for microblading! 

Brow Goals… 

Our goal is to achieve versatile brows that blend seamlessly into your natural brow and compliment your features. Once healed, the finished brows can be dressed-up with a little colour or worn bare for a fresh-faced look. 

Identifying your brow needs… 

In your consultation, we assess the existing hair growth, shape, and discuss your desired look. With this information, we can select the appropriate level of coverage to suit your brow needs. Whether it’s a Level 1, 2, or 3, your brows will be topped up or fully restored to their most natural finish. 

Precision shaping  

The microblading service begins with a personalized mapping of your brow area. This map provides a precise outline of the microblading. The outline gives you a guide of the areas in need of fill, and ensures that the shape suits your face and aligns with your other features.  

Hair strokes 

Each hair stroke is etched by following your natural hair growth, lending way to a multidimensional look that flows with the existing brows. The direction, placement, length, and thickness are measured accordingly with your natural hair. 

Customized colour 

Your brow colour is hand-selected by identifying the hue and level of your skin tone. We then customize a blend that matches and holds pigment after the skin has healed over. 

Complimentary follow-up

Although your brows may look great on the initial date of service, once shed and healed, the results may differ. We want to ensure that your brows are up to par with your expectations, and for that reason, we include a complimentary Refresher session in our microblading services.

Your Refresher session is a colour fill for areas that did not retain the initial procedure or have since faded (50% pigment remaining). We consider how unique our skin is when healing and allow 6-weeks to 12 months for this Refresher visit. 


We are keen on helping you look your best and understand the vital role brows play in your facial appearance. Our service goal is to provide you with brows that flatter your natural features and save you effort in your daily prep routine.

Ingrown Hair Remedies

solutions for ingrown hairs
IPL is one of the most effective ways of treating ingrown hairs.

Are you struggling with ingrown hairs in your beard area?

Ingrown hair remedies are a top skincare concern for most males, especially in areas around the creases of the mouth area and neckline.

Although exfoliation and other skin resurfacing methods can offer mild relief, they do not provide a permanent solution to the issue. 

So, what can you do to alleviate this condition once and for all? Our TOP pick for treating ingrown hairs is IPL Hair Removal

What is IPL? 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a form of phototherapy used to treat structures of the skin/hair.

This advanced method of phototherapy is similar to the commonly known LASER Hair Removal treatment, as it delivers permanent results for most hair and skin types. IPL Hair Removal differs from LASER in the effect that it has on the surrounding tissue. 

How does it work? 

IPL Hair Removal targets active hair follicles with a rapid pulse of light into the bulb of the hair strand. This action causes the live bulb to self-destruct and dissolve within 2-6 weeks.  

How effective is IPL? 

IPL Hair Removal can deliver maximum results of up to 98% hair reduction that lasts 3+ years dependent on the treatment site.  

Clients may need follow-up sessions to maintain maximum results 3 or more years following the last treatment date. Follow-up treatments required ranges from 1-3 sessions spaced 3-4 months apart.  

Why IPL

Up to 98% hair reduction that lasts 3+ years dependent on the treatment site.

IPL is one of the most effective ways of treating ingrown hairs because it not only removes the source of the condition but also helps alleviate some of the scarring left behind.  

How does IPL compare to other methods of ingrown hair removal?


Let us help you get rid of stubborn ingrown hairs and start clearing your skin with IPL Hair Removal. We guarantee you will be amazed with the results after just one treatment!

Microblading Aftercare

Aftercare is important.

Microblading aftercare is important to consider before booking your procedure. Your Microblading procedure comes with post care. We recommend you do not wear contact lenses to your appointment.

POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

The following guide will help you care for your fresh brows. Following the microblading aftercare will ensure you achieve best results. Your brows may feel sore and bruised immediately following your procedure; this usually dissipates within 12 hours.

Follow the POST-TREATMENT GUIDE until your brows have completely flaked and healed. The healing process can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual.

1. Hot temperatures will irritate your brows during the first 12 hours, therefore remain indoors and fan if necessary.

2. DO NOT touch brow with unwashed hands, doing so can cause infection.

3. DO NOT soak brows. Showers and baths are safe; keep your brows away from direct water contact as this may cause color to fade.

4. Face washing and moisturizing instructions:

  • Gently cleanse lower half and forehead with your daily cleanser in the morning. When rinsing cleanser, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
  • Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with the POST CLEANSER and gently wipe brows in outward motion. Blot dry with dry gauze/pad.
  • Once your brows begin scab or flake, apply a small amount of the POST CREAM over the brows after washing in the morning and evening.

5. DO NOT use ANY makeup or SPF directly over the brow area until brows have completely healed. This may alter color tone or blur strokes.

6. AVOID direct sunlight, this can cause the pigment to fade and irritate the skin.

7. DO NOT pick or lift scabs or flakes from brows, this may pull the pigment prematurely causing fading or gaps in strokes.

8. Brow can be lightly tweezed around area treated but not directly over for 3 weeks. Waxing procedure can be performed 4 weeks following procedure.
