Eyebrows are such a prominent feature it’s no wonder people spend so much time, money and effort perfecting them with pencils, gels, powders and stencils. Well, now you can bid your routine farewell thanks to eyebrow microblading, a semi-permanent solution to thin or sparse brows. Sometimes referred to as eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow feathering, 3D brows or micropigmentation, microblading is a type of tattoo artistry that involves implanting pigment under the skin using a special handheld tool that features a fine blade with a series of micro-needles.
Each individual stroke is made one at a time for results that are incredibly natural looking. Because microblading is done with a manual tool and not a tattoo gun and the pigment has an iron oxide base and isn’t deposited as deep into the skin, we’re able to mimic the look of real hairs. While permanent makeup often fades into unnatural colors and can make brows appear as if they were drawn on with a marker, these semi-permanent brows have dimension and fade softly over time.
of Eyebrow Microblading
A semi-permanent solution for sparse eyebrows that looks completely natural
Can be customized to define, fully recreate or fill in eyebrows or to add a bit of an arch
No downtime or daily upkeep required and you’ll see results immediately
Our experienced microblading technician will evaluate your eyebrows and chat with you about your aesthetic goals including your preferred shape and color. The customized procedure takes about two hours total since it requires meticulous attention to detail. We start by drawing the shape using a pencil to ensure your eyebrows will complement your face. To make you as comfortable as possible, we then apply a topical numbing cream to dull any sensation. While everyone is different, most patients don’t experience discomfort and say it feels as if they’re being scratched lightly. Once the anesthetic works its magic, we kick off the actual microblading. We dip the microblade into the pigment and make fine strokes one by one to deposit the pigment under the skin for natural, gorgeous eyebrows. You’ll see the results immediately. We usually recommend a follow-up treatment about one year after your initial procedure to keep the color and strokes looking crisp.
