What Is Microblading Eyebrow Treatment?
Microblading is an exciting new technique where semi-permanent pigmentation is applied to the top layer of your brows. A small hand tool with tiny needles is used to embed the pigment to the top layer of skin to the top layer of skin beneath the eyebrows. This creates longer-lasting, darker, and fuller eyebrows for a fuller and more defined look.

How Does Microblading Work?
All our aesthetic treatments and procedures start before any work is done, as part of a complimentary consultation. There, we’ll examine your brows and facial skin to determine the optimal treatment plan for your complexion and your goals.
Prior to Treatment
We begin by mapping your new, desired eyebrow shape onto your brow areas with a brow pencil. We also apply a topical numbing agent and let it sit for 15-30 minutes to minimize discomfort experienced during the procedure.
Our Certified Medical Aesthetician uses a small tool with tiny needles to carefully apply the pigment to the top layer of skin in brief strokes, to resemble your natural brow hairs. This process will take about an hour, and you will feel mild pricks in the application area during this time.
After Treatment & Results
Immediately after the procedure, your brows will appear much darker than your chosen color. You may also experience minor redness, swelling, or potential scabbing on the brows. All of this is normal, and lasts one to two weeks, at which point your brows should be fully healed and the correct shade.
Results vary by individual, and we offer a touch-up after four to six weeks if necessary, but proper post-care can maintain results for up to 12 months. Your eyebrows will then return to their natural color and shape. This procedure can be repeated as many times as you choose.
Am I a Candidate for Microblading?
Microblading is a safe and long-lasting solution for men and women with thin, light-colored, and over-plucked or over-waxed eyebrows. Our aesthetic team at Wilmington Dermatology Center can help you determine how to best enhance the shape and color of your brows with Microblading.
What should I avoid before Microblading treatment?
Stay out of the sun and do not exercise for a day before your procedure.
What are the side-effects of Microblading?
You may experience mild swelling, itching, scabbing, bruising, and dry tightness after the procedure. Eyebrows may appear too dark, or uneven, especially if swelling is present. All of these symptoms should be resolved within one to two weeks.
What should I avoid after Microblading treatment?
Do not participate in underwater or sweaty activities until healing is complete in two weeks.
Can I wear makeup after Microblading?
Do not use makeup near the treatment area for at least five to seven days.
Will Microblading affect eyebrow hair growth?
Microblading does not affect your eyebrow hair directly: it doesn’t prevent loss or promote growth.
When should I get a touch up?
If necessary, a touch-up is advised four to six days after the procedure. We also recommend maintenance appointments every six to 12 months, or when pigment naturally begins to fade.
