What is Microblading?
Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing because it is a semi-permanent eyebrow treatment. It has grown in popularity because it provides natural and long term solution. The treatment involves precisely implanting pigment under the skin with a handheld tool that has 10-12 needles at the end.
People are fed up taking a lot of time to pencil in, powder, pigment or gel to enhance the look of their eyebrows. Sometimes their eyebrows still look thin and sparse after trying all of these approaches.
How Does Microblading NYC Work?
The handheld device is used because the hair strokes look much more natural and finer than any tattoo. Fine cosmetic tattoo pigments are implanted into the fine incisions in the skin.
Even though microblading has grown in popularity in recent years, this technique has existed for centuries. Microblading in NYC usually lasts up to 2 hours per session, especially for new clients. A top-up appointment is scheduled to fill any gaps where the pigment hasn’t sunk in or healed properly.
How Do I Pick the Right Shape and Color?
Clients sometimes bring images of the brow style they like or come in with the brow makeup they normally wear. Based on their appearance, our aesthetician recommends what color and shape to use to get the look they desire. We suggest that people go with a more natural and lighter color at first because we can always add a darker color in the second top-up session.
How Many Microblading Sessions do I Need?
Microblading is the two-step process where the main treatment is done in the first session and the second appointment will be scheduled four to six weeks later. The second session is shorter than the first and our microblading technician will fill in any faded spots or fix any imperfections.
Preparing for Microblading in NYC
To prepare for microblading in NYC, clients stop all medications and alcohol consumption a week before the treatment. It is important to avoid all blood thinners including retinal because it can result in more bleeding during the procedure.
What Happens During Microblading NYC Treatment?
Our technician first shapes the brow area by threading the hairs, cleaning up the area, and preparing it for treatment. Then the client can see some color swatches and decide on the best shade for their desired look.
Aftewards, pigments are implanted with fine strokes. Each stroke is a superficial line in the skin where the color pigment settles in. More numbing cream can be applied if it is needed during the procedure. A final layer of pigment is added and stays on for 5 minutes.
Results can last up to 3 years after completing microblading in NYC

Does Microblading in NYC Hurt?
Pain is relative and some people feel more discomfort than others, but it’s not unbearable. It’s more uncomfortable than painful and overall, it feels like little scratches.
Depending on the client, our aesthetician can add numbing cream on your brows and top it up during the process to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. If you have low pain tolerance, we may recommend that you put numbing cream up to an hour before microblading begins.
What to Expect After a Session Microblading in NYC?
It’s important to protect microblade eyebrows from all moisture because if you get your eyebrows wet, the scab comes off too early and you will lose the pigment. So no swimming, sweaty workouts, or washing your face for a week.
Some clients experience itching, swelling, or redness the first week and this is normal. The brows may look slightly darker at first but the color will fade 30% to 40%. You will be provided with aftercare ointments during your first treatment microblading in NYC.
