Woman with nicely shaped eyebrows

Whether you’re tired of thin brows or want to cut your beauty routine in half, microblading could be for you. Microblading offers convenience and a confidence boost, and it can save you time in the mornings.

What Is Microblading?

Simply put, microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo designed to fill the gaps between your eyebrow hairs. The idea is to make your brows look fuller. Whether you want thicker eyebrows, higher arches or want to add some color, microblading can help.

What to Expect at Your First Session

Your initial session should take between 2 and 3 hours. First, we shape your brows by threading the hairs and cleaning up the area to get it ready for your treatment.

A topical ointment is applied to your brows to numb the area. This can take from 20 to 40 minutes and while we wait for the numbing cream to work, we will discuss the best shade and shape for your brows.

We then use measuring tools to measure your eyebrows, taking into account symmetry, facial features, and the shape of your face.

Then the needling process begins. The pigment is implanted with a special needle, using light featherweight strokes. Every stroke is a superficial line in your skin where color pigment sinks and settles in. If you start to get uncomfortable, we can add another layer of numbing cream to your eyebrows.

Finally, a last layer of pigment is applied to your eyebrows and left on for a few minutes before being cleaned. We’ll send you home with aftercare instructions to ensure your new brows heal well and last.

Overall, microblading isn’t sore. At most, it feels like tiny needle scratches and the sensation subsides soon after your session.

The Touch-Up Session

About 4 – 6 weeks after your initial session, you’ll be able to come in for your touch up. During this session we’ll take a look at how your skin’s healed and touch up your eyebrows accordingly.

While your eyebrows will look darker than expected immediately after your microblading sessions, they will naturally and gradually fade over time and to varying degrees. That’s why we recommend a refresher session at least once a year to keep your beautiful brows looking their best.
