What is Microblading?
Microblading is a SEMI permanent procedure that gives you hair like strokes to help fill, thicken or shape the brows you desire. A hand tool is used to deposit pigment into the dermis layer of your skin to create this effect. Eyebrows are a major part of your face. If you're not satisfied with the ones you have, microblading is a very natural looking option that allows you to wake up and go without having to use brow pencils, powders or gels. Unlike the sometimes sharpie effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of an embroidery of strokes that look just like real hairs.
Microblading is meant to be a subtle, natural enhancement to create the illusion of fuller brows. It is the perfect solution for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows.

How To Care For Your New Brows
Day of the Procedure
Do not get your brows wet for 24 hours following treatment and avoid water as best you can for 14 days following treatment.
Every 3 hours: gently dab your brows with cotton pad barely dampened with distilled water and apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment to brows. On days 2- 7, continue this regimen changing the frequency to 3 times a day. Only perform this regimen with CLEAN HANDS!!
Expect mild swelling, itching, light scabbing and bruising. This is a good sign that the skin is healing! Do not scrub, pick or rub the “crust” that forms. Allow “crust” to naturally flake from your brows. Picking can remove pigment.
*Brows will appear bolder and darker at first. The pigment used to tattoo takes about 7 days to absorb into the deeper layers of the skin. At 7- 10 days, the top layer of skin will peel and the brows will appear approximately 40% softer and lighter in color.*
Days 2- 14
Do not sleep on your face for the first 10 days, avoid rubbing healing or healed areas.
Do not use any makeup on your brows for at least 14 days. You may resume your usual makeup and cleansing regimen after 14 days. Try to limit sweating to better retain pigment.
Do not expose your brows to sun or tanning beds for at least 14 days. After your brows have healed, use sunblock regularly to protect pigment from fading.
Do not swim or soak for at least 14 days! Apply vaseline to your brows after they are healed to prevent chlorine or salt water from penetrating the pigmented area.
Do not use Retin- A (retinol) or glycolic acids on your brows during or after healing.
Signs and symptoms of infection include: Excessive redness, swelling, pus or severe itch. Call the spa if this occurs. 802-735-3031.
What to expect over the next few weeks:
Brow color may change or fade from the desired result after the initial treatment. This is why a touch- up appointment is scheduled when your brows have healed at 6- 8 weeks. Additional touch ups may be necessary after 6 months- 1 year depending on your skin type, skin care routine, medications, and sun exposure.
