Microblading — permanent makeup that creates beautiful, natural looking eyebrows

Microblading

Microblading is a form of permanent makeup that creates beautiful, natural looking eyebrows with a handheld microblade. It’s perfect for people who have over-plucked brows or for those who want to define, darken or reshape their eyebrows.

About

Technically, microblading is a form of eyebrow tattooing. But unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists apply each hair stroke with a handheld microblade. This produces a very fine line that resembles real hair. Each individual hair stroke is hand drawn by the artist and blended in with the client’s existing eyebrow hair. With a strong artist at the helm, the results can be gorgeous and very lifelike.

Benefits of Microblading

  • Spend less time getting ready in the morning – your eyebrows are perfect every day!
  • No makeup touch-ups required during the day since the pigment will not smudge or smear
  • Lasts between 1 to 3 years, on average
  • Safe when performed by an experienced microblading artist

Procedure

Profile

First, the microblading artist will review the client’s lifestyle and taste. What kind of look do they want? What face shape does the client have? And so on. These questions will help the artist create the best brows for the client.

Microblading

The artist now begins microblading according to the drawing they’ve agreed upon with the client. Once the microblading is finished, the excess ink is removed with a baby wipe so the client can see their new eyebrows! Except for some redness, the client will be ready to go out in public.

Draw

Next, the artist will use a waterproof eyebrow pencil to sketch the eyebrows on the client’s face. This will be the artist’s guide for the microblading procedure and will allow the client to see the final look before any permanent work is performed.

Photography

Whether or not your artist keeps an Instagram like ours, all microblading artists photograph their work for many reasons, not the least of which is to have a record of their own art!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Microblading Painful?

    Most clients report little or no pain. In fact, some clients have even slept through the procedure, which can take a couple of hours. We apply a topical anesthetic to the eyebrow area 20 minutes prior to the process, which leaves most clients numb during the procedure. However, if your artist begins within that 20 minutes or if you find that you’re very sensitive, you may experience mild discomfort.

  • Who Is a Candidate for Microblading?

    Microblading is great for most people. People with the following conditions are  not eligible for microblading:

    Those prone to keloids or post-inflammatory hypopigmentation. Unfortunately, since microblading punctures the skin as we add ink, we cannot work with clients with these conditions.

    If you have a transmittable blood disease, such as HIV or Hepatitis. Again, microblading artists cut the skin, so it is our policy not to work with these conditions.

    If you’ve had JUVÉDERM® or other fillers in that area. Depending on the timing, we recommend you get microblading first! Otherwise, check with your doctor. Many artists may request a note from your doctor first.
