What is microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure for eyebrows, similar to tattooing, that uses a specialized, handheld tool to create the appearance of hairstrokes on the brow line. These hairstrokes imitate real eyebrow hairs, creating the appearance of thicker, fuller brow.
How is microblading performed?
Microblading is the process of making lots of tiny, superficial cuts in the brow line, which are then filled in with pigments to create darker, fuller brows. Microblading is also used to reshape the brow. It can fill in thinning arches, or create the perfect tapering effect. Microblading can create hair-thin cuts that mimic the shape of real eyebrows. This means a more refined, natural looking brow. The results are nearly indistinguishable from real eyebrows.
Does microblading hurt?
To some people it does. To others it does not. Before microblading begins, your brows are treated with a numbing ointment to reduce discomfort. The level of pain is similar to eyebrow threading. Microblading is no worse than regular waxing or plucking.
How long does it take?
It truly depends. You should expect that the process could take up to three hours or more to complete. This is because there are several stages involved in microblading. The desired shape, arch, and thickness of the brows have to first be outlined and drawn in before the actual microblading can begin. This is to ensure that things look exactly the way you want them to. It’s a delicate process that requires precision and attention to detail and can not be rushed.
What do I have to do after the procedure?
You should avoid getting your brows wet for about a week if possible. You’ll want to use an antibiotic ointment for the first 24 hours after treatment, and then Vaseline or a similar ointment for the following week. Avoid using any products with glycolic acid on your brows, as this can fade the pigment. Your brows will look much darker at first, but some of that color will fade after a week or so.
How much does microblading cost?
Your initial microblading session will cost $475 dollars. When you decide to schedule your appointment for microblading we will require that you pay a $50 dollar deposit to hold your appointment. The deposit will be applied to the total cost. The 4-6 week required touch-up cost $50.
How long does microblading last?
Results vary from person to person. Typically, the results will last between 1 and 3 years. It is semi-permanent, so the pigment will fade over timer. A color boost should be scheduled after 12 months.
Who should get microblading?
Microblading is for those who want to redefine their eyebrows. Whether you have naturally thin brows, or your brow-ends are fading with age, microblading has the ability to add volume and color to your eyebrows. Microblading can also reshape your brows, adding more angle to your arch or more detail to your ends.
