Create the perfect brown and get thicker, fuller-looking arches without all the hassle.
Microblading is a technique in which a technician uses a handheld instrument with a grouping of very fine needles in a row that deposit pigment into the dermis with stroking movements. This semi-permanent procedure creates fuller and more natural-looking eyebrows.
Eyebrow tattoos are done with a machine and a single needle. Using a handheld single blade is the difference between microblading and standard eyebrow tattooing. Microblading creates, enhances, or reshapes the eyebrow appearance. It deposits pigment into the upper region of the dermis and fades more rapidly than traditional tattooing techniques, which deposit pigment deeper.
The effects of microblading can last up to 24 months with a recommended annual touchup. The duration of the results will depend on your skin type. Once the pigment has faded, you will see your natural brows just as they are. Our microblading technician has extensive training and an excellent five-star rating with her clients. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and achieve the brows you have always wanted.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Should I consider microblading?
Yes! Microblading gives you better and longer-lasting results than any pencil ever could. If you experience thin or thinning eyebrows and you spend time each morning using a brow pencil, then you are the perfect candidate for microblading.
How long does microblading last?
Microblading can last up to three years, but the lasting effects depend on your lifestyle, sun exposure, and the products you use on your skin. Touch-ups are recommended at least once a year.
Does microblading hurt?
Microblading has minimal pain because we use a numbing gel on your brows before we begin the procedure. You might hear a slight scratching sound, the sound of the blade across your skin.
Are there any side effects, and what is the aftercare?
Infection is possible if you don’t follow proper aftercare. After your procedure, you must keep your brows from products, creams, and cleansers for ten days and not use makeup on the area while it heals. Water can result in smudges or fading. We also suggest protecting your brows from sweat by refraining from heavy exercise while the areas heal. And, even though this is not a tattoo, sunscreen is a must once the area has healed. It helps to extend the longevity of your freshly inked brows and will prevent fading.
How is microblading different than having my eyebrows tattooed?
Unlike tattoos, microblading is semi-permanent because it is done in the superficial layer of the skin, so the color will ultimately fade over time. The tool used for microblading consists of several needles that don’t penetrate the skin but gently scratch the surface, leaving a medical-grade pigment in the outer layer of the skin. This technique creates realistic-looking hair strokes. These hair strokes are thinner than any tattoo line.
