Thick eyebrows are the mark of a classic beauty and are definitely the trend these days, but if you’ve been grooming your brows for sometime, getting them to grow back may be a struggle. At our Aesthetic Artistry NYC medical spas, we specialize in microblading, the practice of using tiny strokes with a small blade to place pigment over your existing eyebrows. Lush brows are possible for anyone with this innovative technique of cosmetic tattoo.

What is microblading?

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo, or micropigmentation, using hair-like incisions of pigment to enhance the eyebrows, making them look full. Sometimes referred to as 3D brows, feathering or eye embroidery, microblading is different than the old style of makeup tattoo. The results last for one to three years, depending on how well your skin holds the pigment. Because the pigment does not penetrate as deeply into the layers of skin as traditional makeup tattoos, microblading does not come with the same level of pain as the old style of tattooing permanent makeup does.

Unlike older forms of tattoo artistry, the microblading procedure actually implants pigment under the skin using a handheld tool instead of a machine. Hair-like strokes are drawn with a small tool to look exactly like the natural hairs of the eyebrows. Eyebrow shape and fullness can change your entire look and making the brows as full and exceptional as possible is the purpose of this unique service.

HOW DOES microblading WORK?

During your initial consultation we’ll discuss the results you are looking to achieve. You may want a natural look or something more dramatic. At that point, we decide on the shape, arch, length, look and type of fullness you would like to have.



Our NYC-based aestheticians are licensed tattoo artists so they are certified in the procedure of microblading, which is required. As the name implies, microblading uses a handheld disposable sterile-tipped blade to shape a natural stroke for the look of real hair. Aesthetic Artistry uses a patented ink with exclusive color technology to microblade eyebrows. This pigment penetrates three layers into skin and produces natural looking brows that will not fade.

Microblading is performed while you recline in comfy treatment chair. A numbing cream to make the procedure virtually painless is applied and the treatment is initially performed in two sessions.

Stage 1: Sets the tone for your basic shape. It is normal to lose 30-50% of the ink from first to second session.

Stage 2: With the finest precision, our aestheticians perfect your brow to give you the post microblading look you desire.

Microblading recovery time takes about seven to ten days for full healing. With each day, your brows will appear darker and more dense.

What are the Advantages of Microblading vs Permanent Tattoo Makeup?

  • 1
    Microblading is less painful than permanent eyebrow tattoo because the ink does not penetrate as deeply into the skin.
  • 2
    The look of the hair created by microblading follows the natural direction of the hair resulting in hair that looks real. It is even difficult to distinguish the real hair from the microbladed hair.
  • 3
    The thicker pigment used in the microblading technique prevents the ink from migrating under the skin.
  • 4
    Although rare, if any corrections need to be made, the process is less painful and less time-consuming than in permanent makeup.
  • 5
    Since microblading is semi-permanent, you have the freedom to change the eyebrow shape as time goes on much easier as the pigment fades.

Can Microblading cover old brow tattoos or permanent makeup?

Microblading can be performed over existing tattoos. We also offer laser tattoo removal for those with existing permanent makeup that are in need of corrections. At Aesthetic Artistry NYC, our staff are specially trained in the delicate procedure of tattoo removal. After the desired pigment has been removed, we can start on the path to exquisitely microblading eyebrows that will enhance your face.

microblading AFTERCARE

Microblading is considered semi-permanent because it will naturally fade out after one to three years. Maintenance sessions may be required even after your initial two sessions as all skin holds ink differently.
Our professional aestheticians will give you specific pre and post care instructions, which are very important to follow in order to maintain your the bladed brows of your tattoo makeup.

Aesthetic Artistry’s NYC medical spas carry a full line of advanced home care products, including Skinceuticals® and Image Skin Care®, to help improve and maintain the skin’s overall health and appearance. We will make sure you have the best skin regimen for you to maintain your look!

How long does Microblading last?

Since microblading pigments are not implanted into the skin as deeply as traditional tattoos, the area will naturally fade overtime. Microblading typically lasts one to three years, depending on skin type and age.

I’ve been coming to Cortney for HydraFacials, chemical
peels, and microblading since 2012. My skin is the best it’s ever been. Cortney
truly goes above and beyond to ensure I get the best results. If you want quality skin care, you must go here!



All I can say is, “Love!” Cortney was very knowledgeable
about microblading, both with the procedure and the before and after care.
She made me feel beautiful with my new brows.



I was hesitant going into my microblading appointment as I don’t deal with pain well.
Cortney was the most welcoming, kind person and I was immediately put at ease. I wake up every morning feeling confident thanks to her artistry! Would definitely recommend.
