Microblading is semi permanent, superficial solution to sparse, over plucked, overwaxed and thinning eyebrows. It is the ideal solution to cover scars and gaps, define shape, create an arch and fill in the brows. Microblading allows to construct natural looking eyebrows for people with very little or no brow hairs. This procedure is perfect for both men and women.
Please read some of our Microblading frequently asked questions below and enjoy some of our before and after pictures of our expert Microblading treatments.
WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a technique where fine lines are scratched into the surface of the skin, and pigment embedded. The strokes accurately replicate hair (as in a brow or hairline). Results can last from six to 18 months, depending on a variety of factors such as color of pigment, skin type, and lifestyle.
WHAT IS PERMANENT MAKEUP?
Permanent makeup are treatments that replicate perfectly applied conventional makeup, most frequently on the brows, lash line, lips, and hairline. This is done by inserting cosmetic pigments into the dermis layer of the skin. Also known as Microblading, Micro-Pigmentation, Brow Embroidery, and Cosmetic Tattooing.
HOW LONG DOES THE RESULT LAST?
For brows, up to 18 months. For lips, one to two years. For eyeliner, three to five years. Hair color, skin type, after-care, and lifestyle also affect longevity of the results. Occasional touch-ups are a way to refresh the results. Done correctly, the treatments do not change color and fade naturally away with time. For areas such as brows, this allows future flexibility with shape, as standards of beauty change. Please note even if not visible to the eye, there will always be vestigial pigment permanently embedded in the skin.
IS IT PAINFUL?
We use effective numbing creams that are FDA approved. On a scale of 1 to 10 with “1” being no discomfort, clients often experience between a 2 and 3 with the Bespoke Brow treatment. Other factors such as menstrual cycles also affect level of sensitivity.
IS IT SAFE?
All our pigments are cosmetic grade, meaning that they are sterilized and purified for cosmetic use. The ingredients used have been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Be wary of products that have not met safety standards, including those that contain “vegetable dyes” that are unstable and may change color after time. In addition, all our tools are single-use and discarded after the treatment. Our specialists are highly trained and experienced professionals.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
There is no downtime, however the brow will take about one week to fully heal. The brow will soften in color by up to 40-50%. During this period, after-care procedures should be carefully followed.

I’ve tried some pretty weird treatments all in the name of beauty, but one of the most outrageous things had to be oil pulling. After watching an episode of “The Doctors” which featured the coconut oil mouthwash method, I swished around the good stuff in my mouth for 15 minutes to test the profound claims behind this ancient Ayurvedic practice.
While dermatologist and author Dr. Debra Jaliman concurs that oil pulling is probably most helpful for the gums, as it stops the growth of strep bacteria, we shouldn’t be quick to assume that it’s a cure-all for other disease processes. However, nutritionist and naturopathic doctor Bruce Fife believes there are beauty benefits to oil gargling. Here are three:
It whitens teeth. Coconut oil possesses natural antibiotic and anti-viral properties that brighten dull or yellowed teeth and enhance the cleansing action of oil pulling, according to Dr. Bruce Fife. It also improves gum health, eliminates bad breath and makes for a prettier smile.
It clears up acne. The detoxifying effect oil pulling has on the body can also reduce the appearance of skin rashes and other blemishes. “Removing bacteria and toxins from the body eliminates a great deal of stress that results in improved energy levels,” said Dr. Fife. And we all know how stress can lead to embarrassing skin problems.
It can lead to a healthy, glowing complexion. Because oil pulling involves “pulling” germs and toxins in the mouth that often leak into the bloodstream, affecting the entire body, Dr. Fife believes that it can improve skin health and appearance. But don’t be mislead by random myths that the oil activates some unknown enzymes in the mouth that magically detox the body. The health benefits of coconut oil coupled with the cleansing action will have your skin glowing from the inside out.
