Microblading® is an enhancement to your natural brows. Microblading is performed with a hand-held tool with micro-needles grouped together allowing the professional to create fine incisions and manually deposit pigment into the upper region of the skin.

How it works:
The technique is done without the use of a machine. Hair strokes are imitated by manually depositing pigment and creating natural brows by following natural growth patterns. The pigment we use is free of metals and with the industry evolving and in high demand, certified , approved pigments for cosmetic use are specifically formulated for the face and skin. (which means no fading out red or blue as traditional tattoos)

Time it takes: 2-3 hours (includes brow mapping to create your dream shape and the actual appointment)
Healing Time: 1-2 weeks per session; You may experience swelling, redness, bruising, or numbness at injection site. Microblading is a multi-step process and requires a touch up 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment.
How long it will last: 1-2 years
Pain Level: Minimal with the ease of topical Lidocaine.
Cost: $550 and it includes a touch up session
Appointment Policy: A consultation is required prior to your initial session.
