Microblading is the art of making realistic hair strokes with pigment to create the illusion of fuller brows. This is a semi-permanent procedure, with results that last about one year depending on your skin type. The benefit of microblading vs permanent makeup is it doesn't go as deep into your skin. This means we have more control over the ink making cleaner, crisper and more natural looking hair strokes for your eyebrows. It also will not fade into an undesirable color that permanent makeup does over time.
If you have sparse, thin, over waxed brows or simply want a fuller, enhanced shape, then microblading is for you!
Our artists are always training and continuing their education in the art of microblading to provide our clients with the BEST eyebrows possible. We know there are more affordable places in the area but we are worth the wait and investment.
The technician and you decide on the best eyebrow shape, fullness, and color prior to the procedure, and then the technician will fill in and shape your new brows using tiny strokes to create lines that look like natural hairs. Microblading generally lasts for 18 months, although in some patients, the pigmentation remains up to three years. After the initial treatment, you may have to schedule a follow-up session to fill in any pigmentation that didn’t take the first time.
Twenty-four hours prior to your session, it’s important to avoid
One week prior to your appointment, avoid
Outdoor sun exposure
Two weeks before your procedure, don’t use AHA skincare products around your eyebrow area or have any Botox treatments. You should also discontinue Retin-A four weeks before your procedure and check your calendar prior to scheduling your treatment because menstruation causes increased skin sensitivity.
When you come in for microblading, our expert technician will shape your brows and then apply a numbing cream for maximum comfort. After the numbing takes effect, which is usually about 30 to 40 minutes, the technician will begin the procedure using the eyebrow color you selected. The strokes are featherweight; you shouldn’t experience any discomfort. If you do, let the technician know and she will apply more numbing ointment.
Between the prep and actual procedure, microblading usually takes about 90 minutes. This includes approximately five minutes after the pigmentation has been applied to allow it to seep in thoroughly. Once it has, the technician will wipe your new, beautiful brows clean. Your technician will give you a full after-care packet, including instructions to follow to ensure you receive the best results from your microblade treatment.
At this time, we only schedule microblade appointments only! Please give us a call with any questions you have or if you would like to schedule a consultation first.

Frequently Asked Questions:
HOW WILL YOU DETERMINE THE RIGHT SHAPE FOR ME?
Every face is different, and no brow shape is exactly the same on everyone. Our Microblading artists use calipers and ratio measuring tools in addition to their highly trained eyes to create a brow that perfectly harmonizes your face. Before any strokes are made, they will ensure you love the shape 100% and tweek it to your satisfaction.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Microblading will last around 1 to 2 years depending on your skin type and how well you maintain your semi-permanent tattoo with touch ups. In more oily skin the treatment may not last as long as a year, and in some skin types it can exceed 2 years.
WILL IT HURT?
Medical grade topical anaesthetic options are available before and during the treatment to ensure a comfortable experience. Everyone has a different pain tolerance, so some clients may not need numbing agents and some may need more that others.
HOW LONG IS THE MICROBLADING TREATMENT?
The initial appointment can take around an hour and fifteen minutes to two hours. Most clients will need a touch up session, lasting around an hour, to perfect your brows. The touch up session is scheduled 4-6 weeks from your initital appointment; this ensures the pigment is completely settled in the skin before new strokes are made.
