Brow Microblading

Microblading is a technique using a super-fine pen to deposit pigment into the skin. The tip is so fine (technically, a bundle of 12 to 15 needles) that it can create hair strokes that look real! The depth of the needles only goes into the superficial layers of the skin. This makes the method semi-permanent, versus permanent, like traditional cosmetic tattoos.

Microblading isn’t just reserved for thin, sparse or over plucked brows. Maybe you’re blessed with naturally full ones? Then microblading can enhance what’s already there. But the results are especially remarkable on those with thin brows or can be life changing for those who suffer from Alopecia or have lost their brows from other medical treatments.

How long does microblading last?

After a needed touch-up one month after your treatment, microblading can last anywhere from 12 months to three years, depending on your lifestyle.

Here are a few ways to extend it!

  • Stay out of the sun, since it can fade the pigment
  • Avoid putting exfoliants (like retinol and glycolic acid) near your brows. They’ll lift the top layers of your skin with continued use—and the color with it.

Any discomfort?

Like any other tattoo, there may be some discomfort. However, our brow artist will numb the area first. Compared to other techniques, microblading gives a very natural look and better simulates hair. The results are worth it!

What should I expect after the treatment?

Your brow artist will go over in detail with you what your aftercare will be but here is a quick run down!

  • For Days 1-7, keep a thin layer of Aquaphor or A&D ointment on your brows to keep them moist once to twice a day.
  • You will want to keep your hands clear of your brows to ensure lower risk of infection.
  • Do not wet for 7 days. You’ll need to wash your hair and face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. (This means no swimming for at least 2 weeks.)
  • Avoid prolonged direct sunlight, tanning beds, excessive sweating, and makeup in the brow area for at least 10 days. If you have to be in the sun, please wear a hat to protect your new brows.
  • Do not rub, pick, or scratch treated areas.

Your artist will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have throughout the process!
