Although standard eyebrow tattoos can be an effective way to create the beautiful brows you desire, they’re a very temporary solution. If you’re interested in a more permanent way to achieve full, breathtaking eyebrows, microblading may be the solution you’re looking for.

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is an innovative cosmetic treatment used to create the appearance of thick, natural-looking eyebrows. Microblading is most commonly performed on patients who have experienced hair loss or are unsatisfied with the natural thinness of their brows.

How Does Microblading Work?

During microblading treatment, pigment is carefully implanted into the superficial layers of the facial skin through tiny incisions. This added pigment mimics the appearance of natural, gorgeous eyebrows, which last significantly longer than standard eyebrow tattoos.

What Are the Benefits of Microblading?

If you’re unsatisfied with the appearance of your eyebrows, microblading can potentially provide you with some or all of the following benefits:

  • Creates the appearance of fuller, more luscious eyebrows
  • Your new brows will require no maintenance
  • You’ll save money on brow pencils, waxing, and other eyebrow upkeep treatments
  • Natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting results
  • Safe and simple treatment
  • Fully customizable eyebrows
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Minimal recovery downtime
  • Minimally invasive procedure

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Before your treatment, the first step will be to have a consultation with our microblading expert. During this meeting, your provider will discuss the treatment with you, ask you about your specific aesthetic goals, and help you decide if microblading is right for you. They will also measure your eyebrows and work with you to create a treatment plan that will achieve your desired facial appearance.

Microblading is performed as an outpatient procedure that will take place right at our clinic. To begin, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin in the treatment area to prevent any pain during the treatment. Next, your provider will use a special tool to make tiny incisions along your eyebrows, carefully implanting pigment throughout the process. Overall, the microblading procedure typically takes between two and three hours, and you should be able to head home shortly after it’s finished.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your microblading treatment, your provider will give you thorough instructions for taking care of your new eyebrows and healing properly. You may experience some redness and sensitivity after the procedure, but most patients don’t require any real downtime, so you should be able to resume your normal routine right away. However, you’ll need to wait at least two weeks before engaging in strenuous exercise.

Am I a Candidate for Microblading?

Adults who would like to have thicker, fuller eyebrows could be good candidates for microblading.

To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should:

  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Be unsatisfied with the fullness or overall appearance of your eyebrows
  • Have the desire to restore your eyebrows after hair loss
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Not be currently taking blood-thinning medications

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Microblading?

It will take some time for your skin to heal after your microblading treatment, and the full results likely won’t be visible for approximately three to four weeks. On average, you can expect the appearance of your new brows to last for between 18 and 30 months.
