​Microblading, also known by a variety of names such as eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. The technique of implanting pigment after the creation of fine incisions in the skin may date back thousands of years [1] however the trend towards using the technique for eyebrows may have emerged in Asia in recent years.

Microblading is performed by manually depositing pigment superficially in the upper region of the dermis with the use of a hand tool with attached needles fused together in a linear grouping, it does not involve the use of a machine. Similar to permanent makeup brow treatments using a machine, the Microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that can be very natural looking but nonetheless Microblading is still a form of cosmetic tattooing. The microblading needle groupings tend to contain needles that are extremely fine in diameter in comparison to the needles used in traditional tattooing however recent advancements in cosmetic tattoo needle technology has also produced extremely fine needles gauges for machine use. Technicians usually use a numbing solution to limit discomfort and consequently like all forms of cosmetic tattooing if performed correctly the procedure causes minimal discomfort.

Acupuncture Treatment

How long does Microblading last?

The pigment used in this procedure is semi-permanent, therefore the procedure typically lasts up to 12 months or longer. Because of the unique qualities of each individual’s skin and lifestyles, we are unable to guarantee how long your results will last. You will likely need a touchup within 6-24 months.

How is the procedure performed?

The procedure is done using a hand tool, with a prepackaged, sterile, single use “blade” made up of a grouping of needles that are 3x smaller than the needles that would be used in a tattoo machine. With the appropriate amount of pressure, the skin is scored and the pigment is deposited into the epidermis (outermost layer of skin). Think paper-cuts!

How long is the procedure?

Your first appointment will take between 60-90 minutes, as plenty of time will be taken to assure that we have created the shape you desire before the procedure is performed.

Your second appointment (6 week touch up) will be between 30-60 minutes.

Does it hurt?

Each individual will have a different experience with the level of discomfort associated with the service. Some say it is relaxing and they only feel the pressure being applied. Others say it feels about as uncomfortable as tweezing. Still there are some who will feel that it is more uncomfortable. Two topical anesthetics are used to ensure your comfort level during the procedure. One is applied 20 minutes prior to beginning the procedure and the second is applied throughout the entire procedure.

What's the healing process like?

When you leave from your appointment your brow area may appear pink, and the pigment itself will seem darker than you may prefer. The day after your appointment few people would notice anything unusual. Throughout the healing process (1-2 weeks) they will slowly fade to a softer, more natural shade, but they will not be unpresentable.

How do I pick the shape I want?

We choose the shape of your new brows together. Whether you are just looking to enhance the fullness of your natural brow, or create a whole new shape, we will take it one step at a time. Your new shape will be applied with a cosmetic pencil first so that you can see how it will look your face. We will not start the procedure until you are happy with what we have created.

I have no brows, can i still get this procedure?

Absolutely, this is a great option for those who suffer from AlopeciaTrichotillomania, or have been through Chemotherapy. Microblading can even correct past wax catastrophe, over tweezing, or the normal hair thinning that occurs post menopause.

Here are some after care instructions on how to take care of your fresh new brows so that you may reap the maximum results.


  1. No touching. You do not want to get any potential bacteria that may be on your hands or fingers to get into your healing brows. This could cause potential infection.

  2. Do not wet for 7 days, please wash your face carefully around the eyebrow without getting water on the treated area. If you feel dust or discomfort on the treated area, wipe it gently with alcohol wipe.

  3. No rubbing or picking the treated area. As your new brows heal, you may notice some flaking of your skin. This is completely normal. Picking at your newly treated brows may result is unwanted gaps that may have otherwise not happened. 

  4. For the first 7 days, keep and thin layer of ointment on your brows to keep them moist. Use a clean Q-Tip to apply as fingers may have bacteria that could cause infection. Once or twice a day should suffice.

  5. Avoid prolonged direct sunlight, tanning beds, excessive sweating, and makeup in the brow area for at least 10 days. If you have to be in the sun, please wear a cap to protect your new brows. 


After the procedure, the area treated will be darker and more intense, this is normal. This will last a few days until the skin heals and peels and naturally exfoliates and the true color emerges.


During the healing process, you may develop dry, or flaky and itchy skin around the treated area. This is completely normal. It is important not to rub, pick or scratch this area. 


It is also important to note that even with proper aftercare, your brows can result in patches or fading spots. This is also completely normal as your body is trying to recover and reject this foreign object from your face. This is what your 6-8 week complimentary touch up is intended for. To replace any hair stokes lost during your initial healing process.


There are a few factors that determine how your body heals such as age, skin type, and lifestyle. However, the typical healing time ranges between 4-6 weeks.
