MICROBLADING AND INJECTABLES

A MESSAGE FROM JJ

I had a great conversation over the weekend with a registered nurse who specializes in injectables. She was curious about the process of Microblading and how I approached the service when someone had recently undergone treatment for botox or filler. For those wondering, filler can be placed in the forehead and temples and is not reserved for check and lip use only.

I explained that injectables of any kind in the brow region can present complications when doing Microblading because it adjusts the brow line and the overall symmetry of your face. Injectables take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to settle, so it is important to keep your Microblading artist in the loop when considering or planning any procedure. It is also important that those offering Microblading do an in-depth consultation with clients and ask specific questions in regards to injectables because it can greatly affect the outcome of your brows.

Personally, when it comes to my clients I ask that they wait 6 weeks after undergoing injectables before they schedule an appointment for Microblading or even a touch up on previous work. This way you have a perfect canvas to work with.

How To Care For Your Lashes During The Winter Months

 

With the cold winter months upon us not only does your skin take a hit from the dry temperatures but also eyelash extensions are affected by the dry weather.  For so many of us that cannot live without eyelash extensions it’s important that you keep your lash extensions fresh and hydrated throughout the winter season without compromising the glue.  Below you will find some suggestions on how to care for your eyelash extensions through the winter months. 

 

Ey Envy eye conditioner was designed for eyelash extensions and is essential for your lash extension health during the winter season.  It will not only help hydrate your natural eyelash extensions but it will help strengthen and grow your natural lashes so you have plenty to work with so you have a beautiful set of Eyelash Extensions

Gel Based Cleanser a gel base cleanser for your eyelash extensions help promote moisture without the harmful effects that lash extensions experience with the use of an oil based cleanser.  Gel based cleansers are perfect for easy cleaning of your eyelash extensions and should be a staple in your daily routine. 

Mascara If you want to put mascara on your Lash Extensions make sure that it is a hydrating formula that doesn’t dry out your Eyelash extensions breaking down the glue that might cause premature fall out.  I would recommend using Ey Envy mascara that was designed for Eyelash Extensions and staying away from volumizing mascaras that contain fibers.  These types of mascara will break down the glue and cause premature fall out during the winter months.
