What is microblading/
Microblading contains an especially sharp handheld blade with several microneedles. The microneedles distribute hair-like strokes into your skin and imitates the appearance of real brow hairs. The procedure targets the deeper layers of your skin and make the pigments look like real hair.
The average eyebrow contains about 250 hairs with a lifespan of four months before being replaced by a new hairs. Most women and men find that their eyebrow hair tends to thin over time. Other areas of micropigmentation includes eyeliner, lip and scalp micropigmentation.
It can take up to two hours to get your initial microblading procedure done. A topical numbing cream or ointment is applied on your brow area to decrease discomfort.
Microblading delivers pigment into the skin of the eyebrow in order to create the appearance of many small strokes of hair. This creates the appearance of a full and natural looking eyebrow without the need to pencil or apply makeup.
A second visit seals your pigment and makes the final changes to your brows. This “touch up” session is recommended for most patients and takes about an hour. It ensures your results will last as long as possible. Its also the time where we can deepen the color of the pigment and even add additional strokes of hair if needed.
Microblading of eyebrows starts at $700 (1 month touch up is $100).

We do all that we can to ensure that the process is as comfortable as possible.

Some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively pain free for most.
You must avoid working out for 5 days following your microblading appointment. Light exercising is allowed (minimal sweating), but you must clean the tattooed area with lukewarm water as soon as you are done exercising. The salt in sweat will fade the pigment very quickly and give poor results.
Exposure to the sun over time can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment. Once completely healed, you may apply sunscreen on the treated area. Wear large sunglasses and a hat for further protection. Rinse and dry the area thoroughly when in contact with chlorine.
– Glycolic Acid, Retinols, face peels and exfoliation must be kept away from the tattooed area as continued use could lighten the pigment.
