Microblading Q&A


What is microblading?

*Individual results may vary

Microblading is the art of applying semi-permanent makeup to enhance the thickness and length of your eyebrows. Rachel is the certified micro pigment technician, specializing in eyebrows at Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute. She uses fine needles to deposit cosmetic tattoo pigment under the superficial layer of skin that mimics the look of natural hair.

Unlike tattooing, microblading must be repeated at regular intervals.

How long does microblading last?

After your original procedure, you go in for a touch-up. Then, you can enjoy your long-lasting results, depending on your lifestyle. Regular use of sunscreen and sunglasses and avoiding exfoliants help the pigment last longer.

Am I a good candidate for brow enhancement?

Most women and men are good candidates for microblading. However, certain skin conditions and medications make you a less ideal candidate for this procedure:

  • Oily skin
  • Dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis
  • Blood thinning medications

When you have oily skin, the pigment fades rapidly and maintaining your desired results requires shorter intervals between touch-ups than if you had normal or dry skin.

Is microblading painful?

Rachel strives to make the procedure as painless as possible by offering you the option of using a numbing agent, applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure, and individualized attention.

What are the aftercare guidelines for microblading?

Rachel and her team at Nu Image provide you with detailed instructions for aftercare. These instructions include a list of don’ts, too:

  • Don’t go in the sun
  • Don’t scratch or peel scabs off the brows
  • Don’t touch your eyebrows
