Eyebrow Microblading in Boulder, Colorado
Are you ready for something new? Do you want the eyebrows you used to have when you were younger? Has your permanent makeup faded to a less than desired color? Microblading, also known as eyebrow 3D embroidery, is your answer. This new semi-permanent technique for eyebrow tattooing is amazing! We use very fine blades that can give the appearance of real hair and provide great eyebrow color correction. This technique goes 2 layers into the dermis of the skin and a topical anesthetic will be applied. Because it does not penetrate as deeply as standard permanent makeup tattooing, a touch up will be recommended a bit sooner at 1-2 years.
The initial microblading procedure is done in 2 appointments. A $25 touchup will be provided in 4-6 weeks and no later than 8 weeks. If later than 2 months, a fee will be applied.
Choosing the right microblading technician is important! Asking for photos of their performed work as well as the amount of experience is a great way to start.

What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup treatment. It’s similar to traditional eyebrow tattooing, although it is not permanent. Microblading is done in the dermis layer of the skin with a small blade that makes scratches. The pigment is inserted into the hair stroke like scratches, making them look like hairs. The result is natural-looking eyebrows that usually last 2-3 years. Some touch ups might be required as well, in order to keep the results of the treatment as fresh as possible.
Which is better, Microblading Vs Eyebrow Tattoos?
Microbladed eyebrows have more advantages than tattooed eyebrows since they look more trendy and natural. Microblading gives your eyebrows the effect of having hairs, while tattooed eyebrows are just a block of color which looks a little bit unnatural and outdated and you don’t see that much in Boulder, Colorado these days. Also, it’s easier to correct microbladed eyebrows if something goes wrong or you just don’t like them. If after some time you want to change the size and shape of your eyebrows, it is easier if your eyebrows are microbladed. Tattooing is much more painful than microblading, since it goes deeper under the skin.
Having your eyebrows tattooed tends to be cheaper and tattooed eyebrows last much longer, while microbladed eyebrows are semi-permanent. Tattooed eyebrows are said to be permanent, but the truth is, the color starts fading after about 5 years. With periodical touch ups, eyebrow tattoos can last up to 10 years, while microbladed eyebrows, with regular touch ups, last up to 3 years.
After comparing microblading Vs. eyebrow tattooing, it can be concluded that tattooing might sound cheaper, but microblading is definitely a better investment.
Is Microblading Painful?
Most clients will feel minimal if any pain. Michelle’s unique technique for numbing makes the microblading process fairly simple and pain free.
Pain may be worse if you tend to have a low pain tolerance. Your skin may begin to feel irritated or burned, sort of like a sunburn. While some minor discomfort and skin irritation should be expected, you may be able to lessen the tenderness and irritation experienced during microblading by following these steps before your appointment:
- Avoid caffeine or alcohol on the day of the procedure.
- Avoid tanning or sunbathing for a few days before the procedure.
- Don’t pluck or wax your eyebrows for a few days before the procedure.
- Avoid chemical peels, laser treatments, and other facial treatments for a few weeks before the procedure.
- Stop using vitamin A (retinol) for a month beforehand.
It’s common for the area to feel bruised or tender for about a day following a microblading procedure. Your skin shouldn’t appear bruised, but it may be a little red. As the wounds heal, you may feel as if you have a sunburn for a few days.
It takes about 10 to 14 days to fully heal as the pigment settles. During this time, your skin may be sensitive.
To help prevent complications and to assist with the healing process and avoid infections, follow the aftercare instructions provided by the microblading technician. These may include the following:
- Apply coconut oil to your eyebrows twice a day until healed.
- Keep the area clean and dry.
- Avoid touching, rubbing, picking, or wetting the brow area for a week to 10 days.
- Avoid using any harsh skin care products.
- Don’t apply makeup to the area for a week.
- Try to avoid excess sweating for a couple weeks.
- Stay out of direct sunlight, including tanning beds.
