Microblading & Microshading

Microblading & Microshading

Microblading $450

Microblading is carried out using a hand held tool to manually insert pigment into the upper layer of the skin.  As the colour is impacted closer to the surface, the hair strokes appear crisp and very fine. Microblading leaves hair-like strokes that can last 12 to 18 months.  You can wake up with beautifully shaped brows without having to do a thing.  The treatment is usually carried out in two treatments that are approximately 6 weeks apart.  Factors such as diet, medical history, skin condition and other possible contraindications need to be discussed to determine if you are a suitable candidate.  While an anesthetic is used people experience various levels of discomfort. A pre treatment consultation is required prior to any microblading appointment.


At your microblading session an in depth discussion of brow shape and color, etc. takes place to determine your preferences.  Brows are pre-drawn and pigment color are swatched on your skin for your review based on your preferences and to determine if any adjustments need to be made.  The microblading session involves multiple passes with the microblade tool to create the brow pattern. An anesthetic is applied three times throughout the treatment to reduce discomfort.  At the end of the treatment a detailed post treatment plan is provided and must be strictly followed to insure the best healing and results. After a 14 day healing process you will be able to determine what top offs (if any)  need to be done at the second appointment. Brows must be completely healed (which usually takes about 6 weeks) after which a top off appointment can take place.


Microshading $575

If you have brows that are more sparse or have areas that are both dense and sparse, sensitive skin or oily skin consider Microshading.  Microshading is the same basic idea of microblading, permanent pigment applied to your arches using tattoo needles but differ by using needles that are grouped in a round shape as opposed to a straight line and using a different technique.  It's result is a shadowed effect.  Microshading leaves small, pinpoint dots as opposed to the tiny, natural-looking hair-strokes of Microblading.  At the end of the treatment it first looks dark like you may have used too dark of a brow pencil but after about a week the appearance of a block of color gives way to a soft looking arch.  This service is a great option for sensitive or oily skin because microshading takes beter to those skin types.

Microshading Upgrade $125

In some instances you may want to add microshading at a touch up appointment.  This works great for sparse brows or brows that are both dense and sparse where microblading alone just needs a little more shadow effect to balance.  At the first appointment the possibility of needing this may be discussed and is something easily added at the touch up appointment.  Many clients like to "wait and see" how the microblading effect works first to see if enough coverage is achieved and then add this to achieve a more dramatic or filled in look.
