What if you could wake up with perfect brows every morning? Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo that gives you perfectly filled, natural looking brows. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and is perfect if you have sparse, thin, or uneven brows, or if you’re simply looking to improve your eyebrows’ fullness and shape without having to put on makeup every morning.
Great eyebrows frame your face and help you to look younger and put together. But they take work! Let us take on the hard work for you and build a better you.
Microblading takes the hard work out of it, letting you achieve your brow goals permanently.
After microblading, you can expect: A defined brow shape — Full brows — Individually defined “hairs” — A custom match to your desired hair color. If you’re looking for microblading in Houston, you can book a service with us.
Microblading is a kind of semi-permanent tattooing done by hand for precise results. A licensed artist uses a handheld pen containing a bundle of super-fine needles to create shallow incisions and simultaneously deposit pigment into the skin. The process makes just one stroke at a time, enabling a brow artist to create exactly the shape you want. Each procedure begins with outlining the eyebrow shape to suit your face and to ensure you end up with exactly your desired look. The artist then mixes a custom pigment shade to look natural with your hair color. At the end, you’ll have gorgeous eyebrows that look natural, down to the individual hair.
After microblading, your brows will go through a healing process during which their appearance will gradually change. In the first week after your appointment, your brows will look dark. Don’t worry! This is normal, and they will fade. In the first and second week, you can expect some flaking and scabbing as your skin heals. In the second week, it may look as though your hair lines are fading away. But by week five, the healing process should be stable, leaving you with defined and natural looking brows.
Unlike a traditional cosmetic tattoo, microblading is not truly permanent. Over time, your body will metabolize the pigment, and the color will fade as you shed and regenerate the top layers of your skin. You can expect your microbladed brows to last for up to 2 years.
How long microblading lasts will depend largely on your skin type and your lifestyle. Oily skin, sweaty skin, and sun exposure can all cause the pigment to fade more quickly. You can help your new brows to last longer by using only gentle cleansers – no exfoliants! – and avoiding retinols in your brow area.
We do a small touch-up about a month after your initial treatment. Then, for most clients, we recommend a touch-up every 1 to 2 years. This is normal for cosmetic tattoo procedures, and the timing will depend on your individual skin type and lifestyle.
If you have oily skin or large pores, it may affect the color. Instead, microshading or henna brows might work better for you. We’re happy to provide an individual consultation on what would be the best fit for your skin type.
Microblading is a technique that penetrates your skin, so you should expect a little discomfort or pain. Microblading only extends to the top few layers of the skin, so it doesn’t hurt as much as a traditional tattoo. We can apply a numbing cream to your brow area to make the treatment more comfortable for you.
As with any tattooing procedure, microblading carries a risk of infection. That’s why it is extremely important to book your procedure with a certified, licensed artist. We will not perform microblading if you have any open cuts in the treatment area. We are also vigilant about using sterilized tools and sanitized spaces. Please follow our aftercare instructions carefully to minimize the risk of infection.MICROBLADING INSTRUCTIONS
