My 6D Eyebrow Microblading Experience ll Step by step process

August 09, 2019 0 Comments

One thing all beauty experts, beauty guru or beauty enthusiast agree on is that as you age, looking at your best is important and that is also having a great eyebrow makes a big difference. Women and even men nowadays have become obsessed with making their eyebrow on fleek.

Some who don't know how to do their makeup particularly on doing their brows is a hassle. Just like me, it took me a lot of time to draw or put eyebrow pencil in it. It becomes a tiresome task when you do it regularly. I have thick brows and at my young age, I did a lot of plucking and it has gotten worse. As in, some of the hair did not grow anymore and worst was that my eyebrows weren't even. My eyebrows were not perfect that's why I took the chance to experience the 6D Microblading Eyebrow at (@clairvisagebeauty) Clair Visage Face and Body.

Before I decided to go for 6D, I did research about it and watched some vloggers who did experience it. A lot of them were satisfied. I also asked my sister in Malaysia who did the procedure and told me that it was okay but it is up to me if I want to go for it.

What is 6D Microblading Eyebrow?
It has been a trend among people all over the world. It helps to reconstruct the brows, fill the gaps and cover the over plucked areas. It can also help make your thin eyebrow to the thicker line. The 6D Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo, a new procedure which is done with the help of blades. The result is more of looking natural just like your actual eyebrow hair. 

So there I was, one Sunday afternoon, filling in the health questionnaire, a little bit nervous but at the same time excited about what will be the result.

Following steps are taken for fulfilling the procedure:

1. Taking photos of my before eyebrows look.

2. Cleaning the eyebrow area. They used alcohol and wipes.

3. Shaving the unwanted hair in the eyebrow area.

4. Measuring and creating a shape of the eyebrow using a string with ink.



5. Applying a cream that will help to numb the area after 30 minutes to lessen any discomfort while tattooing.


6. The procedure of microblade hair strokes will start that will last 1 hour if you have thick eyebrow that will just be filled in and 2-3 hours if you have thin brows.

7. After the procedure is successfully completed, the ink will be applied to the brows or they call it pigment. 

8. After 15-30 minutes, they wiped the brows and applied a white cream, an aftercare cream.


9. They gave me an ointment to help in the healing process.

10. After one and a half month, a touch-up session will be done if the brows are not yet completely filled in.



Day 1 
Dark. No pain, no redness but kind of itchy. My eyelid was a bit swollen.

Day 4
Just itchy and the color is no darker. It lightens a bit.


Aftercare

  • After 24 hours of the microblading procedure, wash face with any mild soap (example: Cetaphil, dove, baby soap)
  • After washing the face, pat it dry with facial tissue then apply ointment using clean cotton buds ( the application should be one-way direction only)
  • Repeat this 3x a day (morning, noon and night) for 7 days until it totally healed.

Restrictions ( 2 weeks to 1 month)

  • Excessive sweating
  • Oily and fishy foods
  • Swimming
  • Too much exposure to sunlight ( put on sunblock)
  • Supplements containing vitamin E
  • Taking collagen
  • Putting moisturizers, toner on the eyebrow area and anything alike
  • Harsh soap (example kojic soap)


Does Microblading hurt?
During the strokes, I only feel like scratches using a needle. I heard the scratches clearly because we were quiet and there's background music, very calming and soothing. After the brows were filled in, the pigment was applied and that's the time I felt prickly or sore. It seems like I plucked all my eyebrow hair. But the pain is tolerable. After an hour, it feels normal.

How much does Microblading cost?
The 6D Microblading cost 8,000 pesos here in the Philippines and it depends on the Artist you will go to and where you are. Some cost much higher like 20,000 to 80,000 pesos depending on what kind of brows you are going for and it also depends on skin type.

How long will it last?
Ma'am Tess Lasam, the artist said, it will last 18 months or more depending on how you care for it. If I am not oily, sweating, too much sun exposure or if I follow the restrictions, microblading will last maybe two to three years. 

Is Microblading for you?
The artist said, their client usually come to avail the 6D because they don't have brows or some are tired of drawing and they are busy people. It is not recommended for a pregnant and nursing mom as well as people who have skin issues, allergies and prone to keloids.



Final Thoughts
There's nothing wrong with making your eyebrows into the next level. It's one way of pampering yourself and wanting to look more beautiful and confident in front of other people. Why not save time to look good and be on fleek 24/7? 
I noticed that my brows look so dark after the microblading. It's pretty normal because of the pigment they applied but it will fade one to two weeks. Be patient. Don't set a date, meeting or party if you are conscious about your brows. It's also natural that some people will look at your brows when they see you. And yes, I am now used to it. They didn't ask yet they second look at me. I posted a new photo and they commented, "wow beautiful" and "kilay is life". That makes me smile.

This treatment is very convenient. No need to put on makeup if your busy, you're always on the go. If the time comes, it will fade, you already have the shape to fill in eyebrow makeup.

The experience I have with Clair Visage was wonderful. The clinic is clean and relaxing. The music is soothing. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I have never been to any clinic which offers like their rates but I think it was fair and can be afforded by financially well-off. 


Where can I have my brows done and book an appointment?

Note: I will update this blog after one month.

Update:
After two weeks, my brows were healed and done flaking. It lightens and the color is the same as my actual brows. Some area was not totally filled in but still looks so natural.

After one month, my brows were totally healed and I noticed that when I am in front of the camera, my brows were not even but in person, it was not noticeable. I still thank Clair Visage for the opportunity. I don't need to put on makeup because I feel fine with my brows.

July 06, 2019 0 Comments

L-R) Eduardo Ibazeta, Money Sales Manager (Domestic), LBC Express Inc., Karen Alcazar, Senior Manager for PH Retail Operations, LBC Express Inc., Oliver Valentin, EVP – COO (Philippines), LBC Express Inc., Robert Hyok Choi, President and CEO of JOINenJOY (IRC), Mingyu Song, Country Manager, JejuAir

LBC is proud to announce that JOINenJOY/Island Resort Club (IRC) Tour Services, an established pioneer in Philippine tourism, has chosen to partner with LBC. 

  JOINenJOY (IRC) specializes in both inbound and outbound Korea-Philippines tourism and is the sole general sales agent in the Philippines of JejuAir, one of the leading low-cost carriers from Korea. In 2018, JOINenJOY (IRC) was accredited to handle Korean Visa processing by the Korean Tourism Organization and the Korean Embassy in the Philippines. Immediately after, JOINenJOY (IRC) offered an exclusive tie-up with LBC to ensure they have a solid ally in their move towards growth and success.  

Last May, LBC and JOINenJOY (IRC) have formalized their partnership through a Memorandum of Agreement signed by Oliver Valentin, EVP – COO (Philippines), LBC Express Inc., Karen Alcazar, Senior Manager for PH Retail Operations, LBC Express Inc., Eduardo Ibazeta, Money Sales Manager (Domestic), LBC Express Inc., Robert Hyok Choi, President and CEO of JOINenJOY (IRC), and Mingyu Song, Country Manager, JejuAir.  This means that Filipinos who wish to travel to Korea may now go to their nearest LBC branch to send their Korean Visa requirements.  Applicants just need to pay for their JOINENJOY/IRC Korean Visa applications thru LBC and their Visa Requirements are delivered for free. With this, Korean Visa applicants of JOINENJOY/IRC will now gain access to LBC’s vast nationwide network of branches and can now experience the convenience and superb service that LBC provides for free. 

JOINenJOY (IRC) is confident that with LBC as a partner, their services will help ease lives of both old and new customers. Robert Hyok Choi - CEO/President of JOINenJOY (IRC) says, as one of the designated travel agencies of the Korean Embassy that can handle Visa Application, their goal is simple: to provide Filipinos easier access to Korea. He recounts: “Before, the process of applying for a Korean visa is not easy because there are a lot of documents that need to be submitted- from application forms to ITR and bank statements. The Korean Embassy found out about this difficulty and designated agencies such as ours to handle group and individual visa application. But later on, we found out that those who are in the provinces still have a hard time submitting their visa applications. For this reason, we decided to partner with LBC. Given that they have 1400 outlet, it will be easier for the Filipinos nationwide to apply for a Korean Visa. Now the process is simple. All passengers have to do is go to any LBC, submit documents, then pay the tourist VISA processing fee amounting to Php700”.

LBC’s Oliver Valentin, EVP – COO (Philippines), meanwhile, is excited to work with JOINenJOY (IRC) saying: “We expect that this partnership will be nothing less than fruitful considering that we share JOINenJOY (IRC)’s goal.”

Dealing with Your Child Repeated Behaviors

June 24, 2019 0 Comments

Today we're going to be talking about how to address repeated behaviors. It is important for us parents to know the signs or when we should stop their repetitive behaviors for them to learn that not all things they want or do will work out.

Dealing with Repeated Behavior
Now, you can actually take all of your kids' behaviors and divide them into two buckets. One is “things you wish they would start doing” and others are the “things you wish they would stop doing.”

You can actually sit down, have a family meeting, and look at the stuff that you are wasting your day on. How many times are you having to say, “no.” and address the same problems?

Stop Behaviors
We are a whole lot better at discovering things we wish they would stop. Try not to be stress, it's your wiring. It's not terrible child rearing. OK? Here's what we need to do:
  • Write down your worries. Make a list. Things that you want them to stop are whining. For me, I can’t take it. It's always the top of the list and it has to be stopped. Things like whining can be counted.

  • Have a three count with real consequences. Now, I’m not talking about the endless counting where you get to 10, you go up, you go back. Counting is actually a two-step process. They get a “one” that tells them, "This is a behavior I don't want you to do anymore." They get about five or ten seconds so they can think about a different choice, then they get to the “two.” Once you're at “two,” this means, “we're done if it happens again.” They get another few seconds, just long enough to process, and then they get the “three” and an immediate consequence. The key for “stop” behaviors is by the time you're at “three,” something about their world has to change. That can be leaving a store, turning off the TV, but it's a very clear system that you can make two choices and, after that, we're just done.

  • "Start" Behaviors: This is the hard part. These are the things that we want to motivate but we tend to punish. So we want them to get in the car quickly, but what we do is start yelling or getting mad or saying, “We’re not going.”
  • Reinforce good behavior with a reward. If you want them, then there needs to be an incentive that happens only once the seatbelt clicks. It can be simple things. It can be a piece of gum. It can be a sticker.

How do you find motivators? Here's the easiest thing: The things that motivate your kid are the stuff they don't want to stop doing.

Don't worry, we're all in this together. Consistency is key, stay motivated. Once you've got your list, you also need to stay motivated, yourself. Be sure to build in some rewards.
