Microblading

Some people have great brows with little to no effort. Others really have to work at them. If your brows are taking up way more of your time than you prefer- don’t despair, try microblading. A semi-permanent specialized tattooing technique for anyone who wants a natural brow that lasts. These are not the stamped-on brows of the past; instead, delicate, super-fine hair strokes look natural and realistic in a way you can’t easily achieve with pencils, gels or powders.

After numbing the area first, a super-fine pen (a bundle of tiny needles) is utilized to deposit pigment into skin, creating “hair strokes” that look like the real thing. The needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, similar to a tiny paper-cut for each stroke. Microblading results in a very natural look and can stimulate actual brow growth.

After an included touch-up in about a month, microblading can last anywhere from 12 months to three years.
