What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement technique for people who want to reshape, redefine or fill in their eyebrows. An alternative to permanent tattooing, Microblading is a manual application of inserting pigment into the outer layers of the skin, allowing our artists to imitate individual hair strokes.
Through Microblading, our brow artists can create your desired eyebrow shape, fullness and color. The effect of Microblading can last up to 18 months, after which time the pigment fades and your Microblading procedure can be repeated.
Is it painful?
Most clients report little or no pain. Often, they say it's a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10, You will be treated with anesthetic-numbing creams that are FDA approved. The first cream is applied to the eyebrow area 20 minutes before we begin the process, clients feel totally numb during the procedure. After the procedure clients say it feels like a slight sunburn, or no more painful than having your brow tweezed.
What to expect during the Microblading process
Microblading allows our brow artists the ability to create a fullness and hair-like effect to your brows. It is a series of hair-like strokes rather than a block of color like traditional tattooed eyebrows. First, a topical numbing cream is applied that stays on for about 20 minutes. Next, your brow color and texture is analyzed and the best custom brow is designed for your bone structure and face shape.
Our brow artists pre-draw your brows, taking into consideration your goals for your eyebrows. You will be given the opportunity to share your thoughts on what you like or do not like about the design, . Once you are satisfied with the shape and thickness, We work together to agree upon a perfect color before we begin the Microblading process
We also will treat your brow area with a topical numbing agent during the Microblading to minimize discomfort.
Your eyebrows will be fully healed within 28 days following your Microblading session. However, the visible top layer of your skin heals within 14 days. After your initial appointment, a 6-8 week “perfecting session” allows us to evaluate your healed brows and complete the 2-step process. Your brows will be set for the next year to 18 months!
Finally, you can relax though the procedure and know that there will be absolutely no shocking surprises. We promise you that you will be thrilled with your first look in the mirror after the procedure. The entire visit lasts two to three hours.
Your “perfecting” appointment will then be scheduled for 6-8 weeks after and shouldn't take longer than 90 minutes.

What is the Difference between Microblading & Tattooing of my Eyebrows?
Microblading only goes through the first 2-3 layers of your epidermis, which is your first layer of skin. However, tattooed eyebrows reach deeper, to the dermis, which is where your hair follicles live. Because tattooing your eyebrows reaches down to your dermis, there’s more of a chance of damaging those follicles and, in turn, losing eyebrow hairs.
Also, the pigment used for tattooing goes deeper down so tattooing has a chance of pigment change or feathering. Healing time is longer and more scabbing involved, as well.
What else do I need to know about Microblading?
