Eyebrow microblading is categorized under permanent makeup. However, unlike other cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and produces results that are actually semi-permanent. People typically visit us for microblading because they are unhappy with their thin or sparse eyebrows. Microblading can be a long-lasting way for them to attain fuller yet natural-looking eyebrows.

Your Microblading Treatment Session

We start by sketching out the new brow shape based on your facial anatomy and desired brow shape-this portion of the appointment takes the longest. Then we use a hand tool with ultra-fine needs to gently draw each "hair" into the skin. It can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost or dwindling brows. The pigment used is chosen to match the natural or desired brow color.

microblading FAQs

How much does microblading cost?

Microblading prices start at $600 and vary between individuals. This price includes your first and second sessions.

Who is a good candidate for microblading?

Some skin types retain ink better than others. Very oily skin types are the most difficult to work with and sometimes reject the pigment. When you come in for consultation we will evaluate your skin and determine if this treatment is right for you.

What does microblading feel like?

Microblading is typically not painful because numbing cream is applied to the area before the treatment. You will experience a soft scratching sensation as the blade is passed over the skin.

How long does it take to get microblading done?

Most microblading sessions take about 2 hours to perform.

Are there any microblading post-treatment care instructions?

We provide very detailed instructions for your aftercare. Here are a few of the more important items:

  • For the first six (6) weeks, apply your mandatory Definition Brows Protective Balm as needed to keep treatment area moist at all times.
  • Do not get the eyebrows wet or take hot showers for 7-10 days or during the healing process. (No saunas, steam rooms, etc.) Scabbing must fall off naturally before you can get the area wet.
  • If your eyebrows get wet during this time, pat them dry with a towel (do not rub).

It is normal for the brow area to be slightly red or scabby. Do not pick at your skin - this will cause further irritation.

How many microblading sessions will I need?

The average patient needs 2 microneedling sessions. The bulk of the work is done in the first session. The second session is scheduled 4 weeks later to touch up any areas that need to be further filled in.

How long does it take for microblading to heal?

Because your brow area may be red, try not to schedule important events like interviews or engagement photos for the first week or 2. Additionally, avoid going to the gym for the first several days. Excess sweating around the brows can prevent pigment retention or cause infection.

When will I see my microblading results?
  • Days 1-3: Your eyebrows will be their darkest.
  • Days 4-5: The small scabs begin to fall off.
  • Day 7: You will begin to see your results.

Your final results will be significantly lighter than day 1, so don't worry if you think your brows are too dark initially.

How long do microblading results last?

Results are semi-permanent, lasting anywhere from 1 to 2 years.
