What is Microblading?
Microblading is a process of skin pigment depositing using a tiny fine point needle tool. The result of the comb-like tool crossing your skin; realistic-looking brow hairs that don't wash off. Microblading saves you time filling in your brows and provides a symmetrical brow appearance.

Our Pittsburgh Microblading team offers semi-permanent tattooing for eyebrows. Most people want to know if microblading is considered a tattoo. Microblading strokes are not ingrained as deeply as a tattoo and microblading uses a semi-permanent dye your body eventually metabolizes and the ink fades away.
I get Botox regularly, am I still able to get my brows done?
Yes! You can get your brows microbladed and get Botox. You will just want to wait 2-4 weeks before or after you do your Botox before you do your brows. In fact, we are building packages for you so consult with your provider to create the best treatment plan for you.
Is there anything I should avoid before getting my brows done?
You should avoid alcohol, caffeine, ibuprofen, fish oils, or any products/medications that thin your blood before your appointment. If you are on prescribed blood thinners, consult your provider for advice.
I've had my brows done before but I'm not happy with the results. Can you fix them?
Clients with previous microblading should schedule a consultation with the provider. These clients are taken on a case-by-case basis to ensure the best quality of work can be provided.
How long does microblading last?
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo. It will fade over time, typically lasting about 1-2 years. This can vary from person to person as everyone's skin type is different. This is why touch-ups are necessary!

Are touch-ups necessary?
YES! The 6-8 week touch-up after your initial session is important to lock in the brow color and shape. Everyone's skin is different so outcomes may vary. Pigment may need to be adjusted, some areas of the skin may not grab onto the pigment, or you may want the shape adjusted. The touch-up really refines your brow. Yearly color boosts are also needed to brighten up the fading pigment.
Is there anyone that can't get microblading?
Yes, there are some medical contraindications to microblading. If you are someone prone to keloid scarring, have HIV/hepatitis, skin cancer, ongoing chemotherapy, actively taking Accutane or steroids, among other conditions, then microblading is not safe for you. Consult with your provider about your medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate.
