Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery or 3D brows, is a manual method for enhancing eyebrows. It is considered to be permanent makeup, and it is done by using a hand tool (not a machine) to deposit pigment into the epidermis. Because the color is closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. The pigment is manually placed into the skin. The sterilized microblading tool is one time use and disposable. The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes fine cuts, as fine as a paper cut, leaving a trace that can hardly be distinguished from real hair. Depending on the drawing technique – of which we are experts – it creates an individual look perfect for your face and the style you are trying to achieve. The results? Perfectly natural – looking, thick, full brows. Microblading takes two appointments to complete.
Powder or Ombre brows are becoming very popular, as it resembles more of the look of a soft eyebrow makeup. Powder technique is very gentle on the skin and therefore suitable for any skin type and age. This technique uses pixelation (little dots) to create soft edges around the brows verses solid block brows. The brows will heal soft and powdery, unlike traditional cosmetic pencils. Once healed, your brows will look like they have been perfectly applied. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This method is great for those with oily skin and really delivers even coverage and ages beautifully.
No, an in person consultation is not necessary, but it is available. If you have additional questions I’m more than happy to answer them over e-mail or phone. If you have an existing tattoo please email clear closeup pictures. If you still wish to come in for consultation you can schedule it on our website and I’ll be happy to meet with you in person.
Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 2 years for most people, before it usually needs a touch up. Powder brows can last 2-3 years before a touch up is needed. This can vary depending on the skin type and how you take care of the treated area.
Most clients report little to no pain, and would compare it to a tweezing or threading session. Many clients even fall asleep! Topical anesthetic is applied prior and during the procedure so the client can feel at ease while receiving the treatment.
A microblading session consists of a consultation on the day of, where we review your lifestyle, brow maintenance, and your desired look. We then map the brows according to your facial structure with the golden ratio of balanced proportion. Once you approve the brow shape, the procedure takes about an hour and a half. This entire session takes a total of 2.5-3 hours.
The brows heal in about one week. Please refer to your after care instructions for an in-depth understanding of the healing process. True reflection of healed color can only be assessed 4 weeks after treatment. It will go from too dark, to too light, to just right!
The first touch up which happens 5-8 weeks after your initial appointment is $100. After that color boosts that occur 6 month – 2 years after are $175.
