What is Microblading?
Microblading, unlike tattooing, uses a hand held tool to implant pigment into the epidermal layer of the skin vs the dermal layer where tattoos go. The blade is made up of of between 14 and 21 tiny, sharp needles. Microblading is considered semi-permanent, but there is no guarantee that it will ever completely disappear from parts or all of the brow. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows.
This isn't a new trend, its been around for many years, but like everything else the TECHNOLOGY behind the art is very new.
your brows look completely natural! Like they're your own eyebrows!
lasts up to 3-5 years between touchups.
The results are natural looking hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair already present. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The pigments are natural, plant-based and FDA-approved, not tested on animals and vegan, and made specifically for permanent makeup.
It is a 2-step procedure. After the "Perfecting Session" you will only need to come back for a touch up every 3-5 years, depending on skin type, to retain the shape and saturation of pigment. You will want your new brows to be at least 50-75% faded before you come back in for a touch up. Brows will start to look "muddy" if you keep layering color on top of color. It can only hold so much.
What Can I expect During my Appointment?
Consultation- we will have a thorough and detailed conversation about your current brow habits, wishes and desires. Pictures will be taken for reference and we will groom your brows if needed.
we begin by using a method called "brow mapping" by using your face's natural shape, hair growth, and bone structure. Once I have drawn the shape of your new brows, I will show you my design, and we will work together to make the shape exactly what you want.
color matching: we have colors to match every hair color, skin tone and under tones.

What to expect after microblading:
Immediately following microblading your skin may feel tender and/or tight.
No down time is expected after the microblading procedure. It takes about 7-14 days for the brows to heal over and about one month for the color to fully set in. You will notice the color will get very light right around the one week mark; the skin will have a opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as "milk skin" and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out, even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed, about 4 weeks later. I will send you home with aftercare.
