Are you curious about microblading, Nashville?
Eyebrows have been the most important facial feature for a long time. In fact, studies show that people are more recognizable by their brows than even their eyes! Our eyebrows are responsible for framing the face and help create emotional expressions.
The average woman spends 10 minutes a day on her eyebrows. That’s 61 hours per year! Pencils, waxes, powders, gels, tweezers, stencils, angled brushes and brow markers—we’ve tried them all—but a new trend is sweeping the city of Nashville and the rest of the country: microblading. This semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo won’t fade color, and best of all, looks incredibly natural. In fact, microblading looks just like you were born with the brows you always wanted—the brows you chose for yourself!
The painless, two-hour procedure, expertly performed at Retief Skin Center in Nashville, begins with mapping out your perfect, individualized brow shape from the fullness, to arch and tail. We start by applying a topical numbing cream, then use tiny "micro blades" to create superficial strokes in the brow area where you may have holes, thinning brows or no brow at all. A pigment that matches your natural hair color is then applied and massaged into the tiny blade strokes that gives the appearance of hair. The results from this short visit can last up to two years! Aftercare is minimal and an hour-long follow up appointment is set for a month later to make sure your brows are everything you ever wanted. So throw out your pencils and waxes. Change your life, your face, your brows and get blading!
How It Works
We start by removing oil, moisturizer, and makeup to create a fresh palate.
To keep the procedure painless, we let the numbing cream activate for up to 30 minutes.
Arched? Rounded? Straight? We draw your brows on first to define the final shape.
Tiny strokes made from small blades are then cut into the surface of the skin.
For the most natural look, we pick a pigment that most closely resembles your hair color.
