Microblading is a semi permanent eyebrow tattoo technique that provides result lasting between 1 and 2 years. Small hairlike strokes are created to fill in your desired shape for the most natural looking results.This service is ideal for anyone who has over plucked, experienced loss/thinning, or simply wants a more defined shape without the extra effort of applying makeup daily.

Thank you for your interest in my Microblading services. I take pride in combining the skills of precision, artistry, and balance into every set of brows I do.

Below is an overview of the service to help answer any questions you may have.

How long does the Microblading last?
Microblading lasts from 1-3 years. After your initial appointments, maintenance services are done every 1-1.5 years. The Microblading will continue to fade from 1.5-2.5 years, being nearly entirely faded by 3 years. Everyone’s skin holds the pigment differently based on body chemistry, sun care practice, and home skin care routines.

Does it hurt?
Most would a green that Microblading is not too painful(and so worth it!). We use a high quality lidocane cream and a fast acting liquid lidocane mid service. You can feel something happening, little scratches “not too bad”. Numbing solution can be applied a 2nd and 3rd time to keep you comfortable.

How long does the service take?
Your first appointment takes 2.5-3 hrs. The first hour is before photos, consultation, drawing, and perfecting the shape of your new brows. After the final drawing is agreed upon, numbing the brow area takes 20-30 min. The Microblading process takes 1-1.5 hrs.

What is aftercare like?
You will avoid touching your brows and keep your hair and makeup off the brow area. You may wear any eye make up as usual, avoiding brow highlighter and applying concealer right next to your new microbladed eyebrows. For the first week you will also avoid getting them wet. This means washing your face with a cloth around the brow area, using caution when washing hair, or having it washed in the salon.
A day or two after your first service the color will become bolder for about 5-7 days as the Microblading strokes heal and the small color scabbing flakes away. Women have mentioned this short phase of bolder brows is a great opportunity to wear a little more lipstick or a little more dramatic eye. Once you are done flaking you may apply coconut or grape seed oil to moisturize and you may also apply makeup and wash face as usual.

Does everyone need a 2nd appointment?
After 6-8 weeks you will return for a touch up.The second appointment is required to achieve lasting results and make minor modifications to further enhance the shape. Not all strokes will hold color the same, most areas will be traced over to achieve consistency. The retouch service takes about 2 hrs.

Microblading is suitable for all ages 18 and over who want to achieve a fuller more defined brow shape.

First service is $300 and the second is $250
