Microblading in Houston, TX
What is Microblading?
Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method. It is considered to be semi-permanent, as compared to the traditional hair stroke technique. It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis. Because we’re impacting color closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. People suffering from alopecia, trichotillomania or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading, as well as people who simply aren’t happy with their eyebrows. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into them. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
The results can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.
What is the procedure like?
We start off the procedure with color matching. The idea is for the pigment we use to match your brow color. If you do not have any eyebrow hair we will match to your pencil you use to fill in or hair color.
We use your face’s natural shape, hair growth, and bone structure to design a perfectly placed brow. Once we shape your new brows on both sides with a brow pencil, I will show you the design. We will work together to make the shape exactly what you want. If you want a thicker or thinner design, we will work with you to achieve the desired shape. The entire process takes 2 hours, but can take up to 3 hours depending on skin type, correction of shape, and symmetry.
