Microblading is known by many names, such as microstroking, feather stroke brows, 3D brows, micropigmentation, and probably several others! It is the process of manually implanting brow colored pigment, carefully selected to match your skin tone and natural color, into the dermis, by sterile disposable needles to produce the appearance of natural brow hair.
The level of discomfort is client dependent but is more often than not very mild. Prior to the procedure I will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and will re-apply if necessary during the procedure. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic. The sensation has been described as light cat scratches and some claim to not feeling anything at all.
After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal. Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn. Clients may take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.
As a precaution I dont perform Microblading or permanent make
up on pregnant or nursing women.
Microblading is a permanent makeup technique that mimics the appearance of natural brow hair, whereas ombré brows achieves a powder filled look that is gradiated–darker at the base and tail of the brow and lighter at the top and bulb of the brow. Ombré can be soft or intense, depending on client preference.

Yes, I pre-draw your eyebrows before I start! You will approve the shape and color ahead of the treatment. I do a one hour consultation with each client beforehand.
All my instructions are on my website please be ready with preparation before
appointment it is very important for good results.
It’s great for that! However, I recommend sending me a photo of your eyebrows without makeup so I can review and let you know whether you’re a candidate.
If you have very oily skin, large pores, or a tendency to keloids, I do not recommend microblading. I do recommend instead ombré brows as it will give you better and longer lasting results.
