Updated: Sep 17, 2021
So, you’re thinking about trying microblading but don’t know much about it? Great news, we’re covering all the basics on microblading here: what it is, who is an ideal candidate for microblading, and what to expect.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a method of permanent cosmetics for your eyebrows done by hand, which creates extremely fine, natural looking hair strokes. Basically, a semi permanent form of cosmetic tattooing. Results last between 1-2 years, but it is recommended you get them refreshed annually, and follow all post procedure care instructions in order to get the best results. Pigment is implanted with a handheld tool intentionally between the epidermis and dermis layers of your skin, making it a superficial tattoo. One of the best things about this service is that it is highly customizable, so that each client can achieve desired results without compromise.
Who Is It For?
For anyone looking to wake up with perfectly groomed, natural looking eyebrows, microblading is an easy solution for you. With that being said, microblading is not suitable for all skin types.

What To Expect
The initial procedure takes around 2 hours so it’s important to set aside a good amount of time for your first visit. This allows for us to answer any and all questions you may have beforehand to make sure you feel confident and comfortable before moving forward with the procedure. After cleansing the skin, we map out your desired shape and thickness allowing for balance and symmetry to the brows that is also complementary with the shape of your face. Once we get your approval on brow shape and thickness, a topical lidocaine numbing cream is applied to the area. This sits for 15 minutes. Once numb the actual microblading process begins.
Healing takes typically 7-14 days, and it’s very important to follow all pre and post procedure care instructions in order to get the best results.
