What is microblading/cosmetic brow tattooing?
Microblading/cosmetic brow tattooing, also known by a variety of names such as eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. The technique of implanting pigment after the creation of fine incisions in the skin may date back thousands of years. However, the trend towards using the technique for eyebrows may have emerged in North America in recent years. If you’re looking for natural-looking eyebrows, microblading/cosmetic brow tattooing in Charlotte can help.

Am I a good candidate for microblading?
Microblading is an excellent option for those who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their eyebrows.
It is ideal for people who have experienced hair loss due to alopecia or similar conditions. It is also an excellent option for people who want to improve their brow shape after experiencing damage due to epilation techniques.
Some people may not be good candidates for microblading. These include those who are under 18, are pregnant or nursing, have severe facial acne, or suffer from rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema on the face.
It is not an ideal option for people who are prone to keloids, are taking blood thinners, or have active skin disorders, autoimmune diseases, or epilepsy.
During a microblading consultation, we will explain how the procedure will go and will ask about your skincare routine, medical history, and desired goals. We will also learn more about your brow shape, skin type, stroke pattern, and hair color.
How is microblading performed?
Microblading is performed by manually depositing pigment superficially in the upper region of the dermis with the use of a hand tool with attached needles fused together in a linear grouping. It does not involve the use of a machine. Similar to permanent makeup brow treatments using a machine, the microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that can be very natural looking. Nonetheless microblading is still a form of cosmetic tattooing. The microblading needle groupings tend to contain needles that are extremely fine in diameter in comparison to the needles used in traditional tattooing. However recent advancements in cosmetic tattoo needle technology has also produced extremely fine needle gauges for machine use. We use a numbing solution to limit discomfort, if performed correctly the procedure causes minimal discomfort.
What is recovery like?
It might take 10-14 days for your newly shaped brows to heal. Avoid picking at the skin around the area to prevent scarring. Follow the clinic’s post-procedure instructions about caring for your skin and consistently cleaning your face. Avoid sweaty activities, and avoid swimming pools, since they can expose you to bacteria.
