A fancy pair of earrings or designer handbag isn’t your best accessory…your eyebrows are! Whether you prefer them feathered and full or perfectly arched, they’re the one feature that has the power to transform your face.
While there are countless powders, pencils and gels to sculpt your perfect brow. There is now a new option with minimal grooming and upkeep required…Microblading.
What is Microblading?
Microblading, sometimes called embroidering, is the technique of drawing individual hair strokes on the skin to give the appearance of a more full, sculpted eyebrow. These hair-like strokes are made using a handheld pen with tiny needles that implant pigment below the surface of the skin. The result is unparalleled and its popularity has skyrocketed in recent months.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Microblading is perfect for those who want to reconstruct overplucked brows. Those who want to better define their arch or simply those who want to toss out their brow products and wake up with full brows.
Have You Done Your Research?
It is important to do your homework before you schedule your microblading appointment. Take the time to inquire at several different salons and spas and ask about their certifications.
Once you have decided to book your appointment. You will want to ask your service provider how to prepare for the procedure. There are certain skincare products, supplements and medications you must discontinue using prior to your appointment.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Microblading takes about to two hours to complete. During the first hour, the technician will analyze your facial structure and then begin to draw the shape of your new brows with a removable pencil. A topical anesthetic is then applied to minimize any discomfort you may experience during the service. After your perfect brow shape has been decided upon, your service will begin. The actual microblading part of your appointment usually is complete within an hour.
The best part of the procedure is that there is no downtime. Your bold, new brows will be selfie-ready immediately following the process. Unlike eyebrow extensions, which can be tricky to maintain, microblading is very low maintenance.

- Avoid getting your brow area exsessively wet for seven days, so be careful when washing your face.
- Avoid picking or rubbing your brows.
- Avoid direct or prolonged sun exposure.
