Microblading

Natural Eyebrow Perfection.

Microblading is a SEMI permanent procedure that gives you hair like strokes to help fill, thicken or shape the brows you desire. A tiny, sterile hand tool is used to deposit pigment into the dermis layer of your skin to create this effect.  If you're not satisfied with the ones you have, microblading is a very natural looking option that allows you to wake up and go without having to use brow pencils, powders or gels.  Unlike the sometimes sharpie effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of an embroidery of strokes that look just like real hairs.

How Long Does It Last?

I aim for perfection, but everyone’s skin is different and will react differently to the procedure of Semi-Permanent microbladed brows. Some skin will heal faster than others, some skin will retain the pigment longer, all skin is aging, some of us will be harder on our skin than others, (swimming, tanning, and weather all have negative effects on our skin). Please keep in mind that nobody’s eyebrows are exactly the same. My goal is to make them match as closely as possible but nature does play a role in the contour of our brows. Dependent on your skin, metabolism, and lifestyle, Microblading can last anywhere form 1 to 3 years. Typically a it lasts about 24 months. A yearly touch up is recommended to maintain your microblading.

How much does Microblading Cost?

All brow styles cost $550 with exception of the Pixie Brow (full microblading on brow with light shading between the strokes $650). These prices include a complimentary touchup within the first 3 months.

Does It Hurt?

The discomfort is relative as everyone has a different level of sensitivity. A pre-numbing anesthetic is applied for numbing before and during the procedure. Every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the duration of the procedure. Our clients are usually pleased to discover that it is no more painful than tweezing or threading

  Do you offer touch ups or corrections?

 All skin accepts dyes differently. Oily skin is especially difficult as it tends to “push” the color out and it will most likely need a touch-up within a month or so. To accommodate the needs of my clients, I am happy to offer: A free touch-up, if needed, within one to three months. This appointment is made on the availability of the shop schedule.

  • The cost for yearly touch-ups and corrections is dependent on how faded your brows are. This could range from $250 - $350. I reserve the right to charge full price if the brows have faded to a point where a full appointment is needed to recreate the brows. 

How Long is the Microblading Procedure?

The entire process takes between 2-3 hours. This includes paperwork, a consultation, brow mapping (this part can take 20-60 minutes because we want them to be perfect), numbing (20 minutes), microblading, before and after pictures, as well as aftercare instructions. 

The actual microblading itself only takes 30 to 35 minutes per brow. After mapping and numbing, I alternate back and forth between the brows re-numbing as necessary. After each pass I allow pigment to sit on the brow not being worked on while I go to the other. It is a solid hour to hour and a half of laying on the table, so you have to be comfortable laying on your back for that period of time. 

What is the Healing Process?

It is normal to experience minimal swelling and tenderness immediately following your procedure. This usually subsides within a few hours. The first week following your treatment, the pigment will appear much darker than how it will appear once it has healed. Around the 1st or 2nd week post procedure, the skin naturally exfoliates and sheds. 

A touch up appointment is scheduled for 4-6 weeks after your initial procedure. This is a complimentary appointment where I can tweak any spots where pigment may have healed lighter in color and make any other adjustments.
