What it is:
Microblading is a manual method of permanent makeup that replicates the look of hair growth in the eyebrow. Individual strokes are placed in the same direction of existing hair to create a seamless and natural look. The results can last anywhere from 6 months to upwards of 24 months depending on skin type and lifestyle. An 18-24 month touch up is recommended.
What to Expect:
A consultation and plan will be customized for you on the day of your treatment. Topical numbing is applied to provide comfort during your treatment. Custom colors will be chosen to create a natural-looking brow. Immediately after your brows with appear slightly darker than the healed result. Healing times are approximately 2 weeks, and a touch up is required 8-12 weeks after the initial treatment. Touch up treatments are recommended every 12-24 months to enhance the appearance of your brows.

You may blot brows with clean tissue immediately post-treatment to remove any lymph drainage. Gently wash brows every AM with the cleanser provided at your treatment, and gently blot to dry. You may apply Hydrating Crème to the treated area once a day.
Peeling may occur a few days post-treatment. The pigment may appear lighter post-treatment and will gradually darken as brows continue to heal. Once the peeling is complete you may resume normal skincare (avoid applying over brows) and activity. You may continue to use Hydrating Crème on brows as needed and you should apply sunscreen every day. A touch up is required 8-12 weeks after the initial treatment and must be completed within this time frame.
