What is Microblading Permanent Makeup?

Brows That Wow

Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that uses a hand-held tool to create hair-like strokes in the skin. Unlike using an eyebrow pencil, which requires daily application and can sometimes look less natural, microblading offers a more natural and long-lasting effect. This technique deposits pigment into the upper layers of the skin, mimicking natural eyebrow hairs and creating fuller, well-defined brows. The microblading process involves meticulous precision, making it ideal for those looking to enhance their eyebrows without daily makeup.

Technology and Process:

  • Hand-held tool with fine needles
  • Pigment matched to natural eyebrow color
  • Strokes mimic natural hair growth
  • Semi-permanent results lasting up to one to three years, providing a natural and subtle enhancement to the eyebrows

What is Microshading?

Elevate Your Eyebrow Game

Microshading, also known as powder brows, involves using a fine-tipped needle to create a soft, shaded look similar to brow powder. This technique adds depth and dimension to the eyebrows, providing a gradient effect that looks natural and complements the microblading strokes. Microshading is perfect for individuals seeking a fuller, more defined brow look with a soft finish. Combo brows, a combination of microblading and microshading techniques, offer a more natural and defined look, enhancing the overall appearance of the eyebrows.

Technology and Process

  • Fine-tipped needle for shading
  • Gradient effect for a natural look
  • Complements microblading for fuller brows
  • Ideal for sensitive or oily skin
  • Ombre brows technique for a soft, gradient effect similar to microshading

Microblading and Microshading Candidates

Candidates for these treatments include individuals looking to improve the appearance of their eyebrows, those with sparse or thinning brows, and anyone seeking a low-maintenance beauty routine. However, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Certain skin conditions, allergies to pigment, or specific health issues may contraindicate these procedures. Henna brows can be a great alternative for those with sparse eyebrows who may not be ideal candidates for microblading or microshading.

  • People without allergies to pigments
  • Individuals without skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis on the eyebrow area

Consultation and Preparation

During the consultation, Dr. Halpern will assess your eyebrows, discuss your desired look, and explain the procedure. Patients should avoid alcohol, caffeine, and blood-thinning medications before the treatment to minimize the risk of bleeding and bruising. Proper preparation ensures the best possible outcome for your microblading and microshading procedures.


Brows in Bloom

The microblading and microshading procedures typically take about two to three hours. A numbing agent is applied to ensure comfort, followed by the precise application of pigment. The process involves creating hair-like strokes and shading to achieve the desired look. Dr. Halpern’s expert technique ensures minimal discomfort and optimal results.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

New eyebrows are visible immediately, with full results appearing after the healing process (about four to six weeks). During the initial healing phase, patients should avoid water, sweat, and sun exposure to the treated area. Regular touch-ups are recommended to maintain the best results. Proper aftercare is essential to ensure the longevity and quality of your new brows.
