Don’t underestimate the drastic difference that full, lush eyebrows can have on your overall facial appearance! Paper-thin eyebrows are not as common as they once were, as more and more people are opting to achieve a full, bushy look. This is where eyebrow microblading can help! Eyebrow microblading is a treatment to restore those lush full eyebrows you’ve always wanted, without all of the work of growing out your eyebrows or filling them in on a daily basis.

What is Microblading? #SPMU*

Microblading is a new semi-permanent makeup technique that fills brows in, darkens or reshapes them by drawing (etching in) tiny strokes that look like individual hairs. Microblading is different from tattoos because, instead of a needle, a small blade is used to manually draw hair-like strokes onto the skin. The results look completely natural and those around you won’t be able to notice a difference.

Microblading is semi-permanent because the ink is not pushed as deeply into the skin as a traditional tattoo. On average, microblading will last 18-24 months and we recommend a touch-up every 9-12 months.

The Process

The initial process requires two appointments; the first appointment lasts approximately 1 hour and the majority of that time is spent measuring and selecting the perfect shape and color to fit your needs. The second appointment takes place 1-2 months later and at that time we fill in any sparse areas, and make any necessary adjustments in color and shape. Topical lidocaine (a local anesthetic) is applied to the brows to minimize pain.

Rest assured that our team is experienced in microblading, delivering only top-quality results. We are happy to answer your questions every step of the way, as we know it can be intimidating to think about making a semi-permanent decision to your facial appearance.


Downtime after eyebrow microblading is very minimal, ensuring that you can return to your normal daily routine immediately. You can expect redness for 1-2 days and minor scabbing and flaking starting 7-10 days after the first appointment.

Eyebrow microblading is ideal for anyone with thinning or sparse brows, and it is a great way to achieve symmetry for uneven brows or for anyone who wants to enhance the brows they have without having to fill them in on a daily basis.
