What is Microblading?
Microblading is the artistic technique of tattooing individual hair strokes with a handheld tool called a microblade. Unlike traditional tattooing, which uses a machine, microblading artists hand draw each hair to match the color and coarseness of your eyebrows. The result? Gorgeous, natural looking eyebrows.
How long does it last?
Microbladed eyebrows last 1 to 2 years for most people, before it usually needs a touch up.
Does it hurt?
Most clients report little or no pain! I use a topical anesthetic before the procedure to numb the affected area.
How long is the appointment?
It usually takes 2 hours, with most of the time spent going over colors and drawing eyebrow shapes. The microblading portion lasts 30-45 minutes.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
Before your appointment, I highly encourage my clients to check out my Instagram and "shop" for eyebrows on my feed. Eyebrows comes in many shapes and styles, from feathered to bold, arched to straight. I will work with you to customize your best brows. In the week before your appointment, I recommend avoiding blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol or using retinol creams. Please do not tweeze or wax your eyebrows for a minimum of 6wks before your scheduled appointment.
When should I get a touch up? How much is it?
A complimentary touch up is between 4-8 weeks of your appointment. After that, I charge a fee.
Can I get microblading while pregnant?
No, I do not recommend microblading while pregnant or breastfeeding.
