Microblading is a semi-permanent treatment that enhances the shape and fullness of your natural eyebrows. It uses a pen-like handpiece with many tiny needles at the end which scratch the surface of the skin and implant medical-grade pigment into the top layers of the skin. This technique mimics the appearance of fine, natural hairs.
- Microblading enhances the appearance of the natural brows using pigment.
- This treatment can be customized to your natural hair color and facial profile.
- It comes with minimal downtime and results that last for a year or more.
Microblading is an excellent option for patients who naturally have thin or sparse eyebrows, or who want to reduce the amount of time they spend shaping or filling in their eyebrows. Flattering, appropriately-performed microblading can greatly enhance the face and frame the profile even without makeup. For many patients, it can be a great investment in their beauty routine and self-confidence.
Microblading is similar to tattooing, except that the pigment remains in the upper layers of the skin rather than deeper down. It requires an extremely fine needle to mimic the appearance of natural hairs— after these tiny scratches are made, the pigment remains in the skin where it slowly fades over time. This process is calculated to produce the most flattering shape and color for your face, so you should always receive microblading from an experienced aesthetician.
This process is usually performed under a local anesthetic so that you’re comfortable and relaxed throughout. Once the local anesthetic comes into effect, your microblading expert will make some measurements on your forehead and around your brows to create a framework of your most flattering brow shape. Then, your expert will select the pigment that best matches your natural hair color before applying the pigment using the handpiece.
After your initial treatment, we recommend you return for a touch-up appointment after one month or longer to make sure the brows retain their fullness and color.
- Avoid sunlight or tanning beds before and after treatment
- Stop using retinoid products at least one month before
- Avoid exercising for one or two weeks after, since sweat can disrupt the pigment
It’s important to note that your microblading results will appear much darker in the few days after treatment before it fades to its intended color. You can expect some scabbing to occur (which you must not pick at), and you should avoid wearing makeup until your brows are healed. You’ll see your final results only after a touch-up session, after which your brows will be fuller, darker, and shapelier.

It’s important to note that certain skin types don’t react well to microblading and may not produce good results. It’s also possible to experience a reaction to the pigment. You’ll discuss any concerns during a consultation with our experts.
It’s generally recommended that you avoid filling in your eyebrows with makeup after microblading, since common makeup removers can cause the pigment to fade more quickly.
Fortunately, microblading is not permanent and the results will fade over the course of a year or longer. It does not leave behind scarring or discoloration. If you want your results undone, we can use a special solution to help fade it more quickly.
