What Is Microblading?

Microblading, also known as "eyebrow embroidery", "3D brows", "feathering brows", or "Japanese Method", is the method of manually implanting pigment into the epidermis in thin, hair-like strokes to achieve your most natural, symmetrical brow. 

How Long Can You Expect Microbladed Brows To Last?

Some will refer to Microblading as "semi-permanent", however it is impossible to know how long your skin will retain the pigment or whether or not the pigment will ever fade completely. Therefore, it is important that you understand this is still considered "permanent makeup". Though everyone is different, the general retention average is 1-3 years. During Microblading, pigment is only placed superficially, as opposed to a traditional tattoo (which penetrates beyond the epidermis to the dermis.) The pigment is expected to gradually fade over time as the epidermis layer is constantly being shed and sloughed off through your body's natural cell turnover process. Immediate and long-term aftercare is extremely important as it plays a large factor in how well your brows heal and how long they last. 

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Microblading?

Microblading tends to heal best on clients with normal to dry skin types. Those with extremely oily skin, enlarged pores, who wear dramatic "Instagram" brows, or who have had previous eyebrow tattooing may not be ideal candidates for the Microblading procedure. These skin types may benefit from Microshading or a combination of Microblading and manual shading, also referred to as "Blade & Shade". We will go into further detail during your consultation. 

Under No Circumstances Will Microblading Be Performed On Clients With Any Of The Following Conditions:

  • Diabetes AND are over age 55

  • Pregnancy/breastfeeding

  • Cancer or are undergoing chemo/radiation

  • Open wounds on brow/eye area

  • History of keloids (test spot is required)
