social 1

Doesn’t it sound amazing to wake up with beautiful, full, rich eyebrows that you do not have to fill in? Well, you are in luck! Microblading offers just that. This somewhat new beauty trend is leaving women and men everywhere with the thick, dark brows they have been desiring for years!

But, before you go running to the salon, we have put together a list of things we believe you should know about microblading:

1.       Microblading is a two-part process: many people do not realize that microblading is a two-part process and it is especially important that you follow through with the second appointment. During step one, your microblading specialist will draw on your perfect brow and will then use a tiny needle to create small hair like strokes to create natural-looking fuller eyebrows. The second part of the process is a follow up appointment 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure. The second step is especially important, because it will complete the look you are going for. After part one, during the healing process, the originally pigmentation will fade, and you may end up with parts of the eyebrow that are lighter than the rest of the brow. During the touch up session, your technician will go over the lines to fill in the parts that faded and make any necessary color adjustments.

2.       Microblading is not permanent: another important thing you should know is that microblading not permanent. The pigment that is used is semi-permanent and will last anywhere between one and three years depending on your skin and maintenance. Keep in mind, it is not long-lasting tattoo ink!

3.       Microblading is not a tattoo: many people confuse microblading for eyebrow tattooing, but it is done via a completely different technique. Eyebrow tattoos are done with a motorized device whereas microblading is done using a hand-held device, also known as a pen. Tattooing tends to be more painful then microblading and it has more staying power where microblading usually lasts up to three years, depending on the skin and other factors. Eyebrow tattoos are also done with ink whereas microblading uses pigment.

4.       There is no downtime with microblading and you can be in and out in 2-3 hours! One thing you should know about microblading is there is essentially no downtime and the initial session should only last 2-3 hours. The follow up session will be quicker as the drawing and shaping of your brow during the initial visit is usually what takes up the most time.

5.       Your technician will provide you with the proper care instructions following your procedure: when your technician gives you the list of care instructions, it is important to follow them exactly to prevent infection or irritation. While there is no downtime, you will need to refrain from wearing makeup around the brow area and should keep the area clean and dry. Your technician will tell you what ointment to put on to protect the skin and keep it moist and when and how it should be done.

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo, used for the purpose of reconstructing sparse eyebrows or simply to enhance already full brows. The proper ink is chosen and mixed to fit your exact skin tone to look the most natural and realistic. We then create small, hair-like strokes to perfectly mimic natural and gorgeous eyebrows.


Healed microblading results last anywhere from 1-2 years, depending on your skin type. If you have oily skin, results usually fade a little faster than those with dryer skin types. Touch-ups are required to maintain the microbladed look. First touch-up is included.

Microbladed brows typically take 6 weeks to fully heal. Within the first week the pigment will appear much darker, and your eyebrows will look very bold. Do not worry! This is part of the healing process and it means that you are healing properly. After the first week the eyebrows will begin to get lighter, as by now the scabbing should be taking place. This is also normal! Around week 2, most of the scabbing should be done, and you will begin to see your full and natural eyebrow shape come through. Let it heal naturally, and only begin to wash your eyebrows with a mild foamy anti-bacterial soap after 14 days.


There should be absolutely NO picking at your eyebrows for the first 10 days. The first 10 days are the most crucial for having healthy healed eyebrows. Let the epithelial crust and natural scabbing occur on its own. After the first two weeks, you are allowed to begin washing them again. Try to keep the area as dry as possible in the first 10 days. Do not swim in fresh, salt, or chlorinated pool water for at least 2-4 weeks following your procedure. Limit sun exposure for 14 days following the procedure. For the first two weeks, avoid:Water, cleansers, creams, makeup, heavy sweating in the brow area, tanning and heavy sun exposure, Facials, facial fillers, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion.


Discomfort is minimal, although a numbing cream is applied to alleviate any discomfort.
