Microblading(or eyebrow embroidery) is a semi-permanent, manual method of tattooing the eyebrows. It is done with a very fine blade to deposit pigment and give realistic, individual hair strokes. The result is much more natural looking than traditional block brow, or powder brow tattooing methods. We are able to reshape, thicken, and darken your existing brows and customize a look that compliments your facial shape and structure. The treatment is done in 2 steps, your initial visit will take up to two hours, and your perfecting session a month later is included in the cost and can take anywhere from 30-75 minutes.
Permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have any of the following:
- Pregnant or nursing
- Undergoing chemotherapy (consult your doctor first)
- Viral infections and/or diseases
- A pacemaker, or major heart problems
- Had an organ transplant
- Skin irritations or psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
- Generally not feeling well (cold, flu, etc.)
- Had Botox in the past two months
- Used Accutane in the past year
Touchups are typically recommended annually. However, very oily or dry/flaky skin types may require more frequent touchups.
We have found the use of anesthetic affects the final healed result negatively. To achieve beautiful, and lasting results, we do not use any sort of numbing solution. Discomfort is minimal, especially compared to traditional tattooing methods.
Microblading is always a 2 step process. After your initial visit, we require a “perfecting session” within 90 days. Because of the shallow depth of microblading, you may have some strokes that need a second pass due to poor color retention. This is also the opportunity for you and your artist to make any desired adjustments to shape and color.
Your eyebrows will look much darker the day of the procedure, and for three (3) to seven (7) days afterward. Your brows will go through a healing stage for the next 30 days and may appear to lighten, then heal 20-35% lighter than they were on the day of your appointment
