What is microblading?

Microblading or 3D embroidery places hair-like strokes just under the surface of the skin (epidermis) without pushing the pigment into the dermal layer of the skin. Our hair stroke designs follow the direction of the client’s natural hair growth pattern rather than a one-size fits all template.


Is there anything I need to know before having the procedure?

  • Do not wax your eyebrows 7 days prior to having the procedure.

  • Avoid tanning, Aspirin and Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to the procedure.

  • Avoid alcohol on the day of the procedure.

  • Discontinue use of Retin-A near the brow area for 6 weeks prior to scheduling an appointment.

  • Schedule your appointment for Microblading prior to your Botox appointment or wait 6 weeks post botox for microblading.


How many treatments will I require?

  • In most cases, the initial treatment followed by a retouch appointment is all that is needed until the strokes fade over time.

  • Note: Rare cases may require a 3rd treatment. If you have large pores and oily skin directly in the brow area, there is a chance you may need a 3rd treatment in which an additional fee may apply.


What can I expect when I arrive at my appointment?

  • You will be given a consent form to sign. Then you will relax in a comfortable chair while a microblading professional outlines your new brows to a shape that you desire. After that the microblading professional will “clean up” your brows by removing a few hairs, then apply an anesthetic cream to the area to minimize discomfort. Your microblading professional will use a special tool and a pigment color that matches your brows hair color to draw the hair-like strokes on your skin. A special ointment is applied after the procedure to help with the healing process. The entire process takes about two hours from start to finish.

Will it look natural?

  • Yes, microblading looks exactly like real brow hairs!!! Immediately after the treatment the color will appear darker for the first 7-14 days. After that, you will lose approximately 50% of color intensity.


Will I still have to fill in my brows?

  • Depends. Microblading is a wonderful choice for a natural hair-like appearance. For clients that prefer a bold “made up” brow look, additional penciling may be needed after the healing process is complete. Don’t throw away all of your brow makeup as bi annual-annual touch ups are needed to maintain shape, color and density.


What kind of pigments are used?

  • We use quality cream pigments specifically manufactured for implantation into human skin. Our cream pigments are inorganic (meaning they are semi-permanent) and contain soy.
