If the idea of eyebrow tattooing is intriguing, but you aren’t ready for a permanent commitment, consider microblading, a semi-permanent approach to thicker, natural-looking eyebrows. At Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics, Medical Assistant, Myriam Lopez, and Certified Esthetician, Jessica Acosta, can give you the brows you’ve dreamed of without surgery or tattooing.

Microblading is a semi-permanent, natural way to enhance your eyebrows. Better than a tattoo for creating brows, these two techniques have fundamental differences.
Your Vintage Wellness provider uses a microblading tool with multiple tiny needles to create shallow cuts in your skin. Then, the pigment seeps into the tiny cuts. By contrast, when you get a tattoo, the pigment is injected.
The fine needles used in microblading mean that your provider can create tiny, exact, hair-like lines. With this precise cosmetic technique, you enjoy a much more natural-looking brow than achieved through conventional tattooing.
Second, microblading isn’t permanent. You can expect the results to last for 1-3 years. The rate at which the pigment fades and how long that takes depends on your skin type and how well your skin holds pigmentation.
The sensations you feel during your microblading procedure are likely to range from no pain to the feeling of being scratched. To ensure your comfort, your Vintage Wellness provider applies a numbing cream to the area before starting the treatment.
Microblading is not — nor should it be — a fast process. Your provider artfully draws each line, so you know what the result looks like, ensuring they’re the full brows you desire. This cosmetic procedure takes up to 90 minutes, depending on how sparse your natural brows are and your goals.
One treatment and one follow-up visit are typically all you need to achieve your desired results. To maintain your new look, come in every six months for touch-ups, which go much faster than the first treatment.
Other than expecting to wake up with perfect eyebrows, you must carefully follow the after-care instructions from the Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics Center team, especially for the first few days, which are the most critical.
You must keep your eyebrows away from any moisture: No washing your face with water or getting extra sweaty. Some mild swelling and redness is normal and dissipates quickly.
Apply the ointment that the office prescribes in the days following treatment as directed. If you experience itchiness, petroleum jelly can help.
