Microblading, also known as: Microstroking, Feathering, Eyebrow Embroidery, 3D Eyebrows
Microblading began in Asia about 25 years ago. The technique matured as artists experimented with different brow patterns, tools and application techniques.
Microblading is a permanent cosmetic procedure that uses a hand tool, as opposed to a tattoo machine, which allows for “hair strokes” to be created, leaving a very natural look in reconstructing and reshaping lost eyebrows. It is known by many different names: microstroking, feathering, eyebrow embroidery, 3D eyebrows just to name a few.

Microblading for the eyebrows lasts around 1 to 2 years before a touch up is needed. Various things can cause the strokes to fade faster such as sun exposure, chemical peels and laser treatments over the area, and excessively oily skin with larger pores.
Most patients report little to no pain. We use two different types of topical anesthetic before and during the procedure to numb the brows allowing for a pleasant, pain free experience.
The appointment is broken up into two different days. In the first appointment, plan for 2 hours, during this time we complete the consultation to review your health history and ensure you are a good candidate for microblading. Most of the time in this appointment is spent deciding what color pigment to use and drawing out the eyebrow design to ensure proper measurement and placement of arch, tail and thickness for your facial features. Once the final design is decided upon the microblading portion takes about 30 minutes. In 4-6 weeks a follow up appointment will be conducted to ensure the thickness, color and shape are all to patient satisfaction.
For the next 7-10 days after microblading you will need to avoid direct contact with water to your eyebrows. A small amount of A&D ointment should be applied to your eyebrows keeping the microblading strokes moist and hydrated while they heal. During this time, you will not be able to wear makeup on your eyebrows. It is also suggested that you avoid excessive sweating during this heal time.
After 7-10 days you will be able to resume normal activity, showering, face washing and makeup. It is suggested to use sunscreen over your eyebrows in order to prevent fading of the pigment.
