No matter if you like your brows arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are arguably the most important facial feature. If you’re not satisfied with the ones you have, there are so many ways to update them. Northwest Aesthetics now offers a very natural option that delivers semi-permanent results. Unlike the thick line effects of permanent makeup, microblading is more of an embroidery of thin strokes that look just like real hairs to give you real results.
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo to correct, enhance and achieve a natural looking eyebrow. The goal of microblading is to imitate the existing eyebrow hair; the strokes that are made to correct the eyebrow blend in with the already existing hair. Using the dual method of microblading this allows for the strokes to look like actual hair.

HOW MICROBLADING WORKS:
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique, which leaves you with natural looking, fuller brows. It does not require you to shave your eyebrows or damage your natural hair. We use a special tool to deposit pigment into the top layer of skin, drawing individual thin, hair-like strokes one by one. The results create a natural look.
PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:
Prior to the procedure we ask that you come in for a consultation. During your consult we will talk about what you want to fix about your eyebrows. At this time we will draw on brows and talk about what you are looking for to correct your brows or enhance your brows. During the consultation we will pick out a pigment color that fits you best. Always remember during your consultation we can always make your brows darker and thicker at your 6 week touch up, but we cannot make your brows lighter or thinner.
DETERMINING THE RIGHT BROW SHAPE:
Every face is different, and no brow shape is exactly the same on everyone. Our microblading expert, Alex, will create a brow that perfectly harmonizes your face. Before any strokes are made, she will ensure you love the shape and tweak it to your satisfaction.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT:
The next time you come in we will do the procedure of microblading. This typically takes about two to two and a half hours to complete. When you come in that day we will redraw the eyebrows and make sure the shape perfectly fits you and your needs. You will continue to check the shape of your brows as they are drawn on to insure that you like the shape of the brow you are getting. Seeing the brows drawn on may look intimidating but remember that we only make stokes inside of the outline of the brow. After the brows are drawn on and the client likes the way they look you will lay back and we can start the process of adding strokes and color to the eyebrows.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:
There is no downtime with Microblading. Immediately after treatment, your brows are very defined and dark and the skin around might be red. Brows will fade about 20 to 40%, depending on skin type, to a soft and natural look. You may experience itching, flaking, light scabbing, pigment disappearance and reappearance. This is very normal for microblading and results shouldn’t be judged until the pigment is fully settled in the skin (which takes around four weeks). To perfect your brows, a complementary touch up session is included in the initial price.
