The trek to semi-permanent fleekness when it comes to eyebrows has been ever-evolving.

First, it was the brow pencil, then brow gel and cream-to-powder solutions. Now, microblading is traction amongst many ladies hoping to skip daily eyebrow maintenance and score fuller brows.

“Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps, or fill-in over plucked brows,” explained Nadia Afanaseva, microblading expert at Eye Design New York.

And the process is pretty easy. With a microblading pen, the specialist draws individual strokes one by one, using the customers preferred shape and color to create a natural, hair-like look. Very meticulous, the entire tattoo-like process takes an upwards of two hours to complete. As far as the pain goes, a topical numbing cream and a liquid anesthetic is applied to minimize discomfort. Afanaseva assured, “some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively painless.”

The downtime for healing varies, but usually takes about a month. Afanaseva recommends a 40-minute touch-up to most customers to make sure they’ve achieved the perfect brow that will have ultimate longevity.
