Eyebrow Shaping at The West Institute
Microblading Chevy Chase
Chelsea Heidenberger, our experienced Medical Aesthetician who has a cult following for eyebrow shaping, is now performing microblading, an advanced technique requiring hours of training and experience.
Microblading is the ultimate and current gold-standard technique for eyebrow tattooing, using a pen-like device with a disposable microblade attached to etch very thin lines into the skin, mimicking eyebrow hairs.
During application with the hand held microblade, color is deposited closer to the skin’s surface compared to older techniques, leaving very fine and crisp hair strokes with no diffusion under the skin.
The technique results in a more natural look than could previously be achieved. Each set of brows is custom designed to your facial measurements and the color is chosen to complement your face without any makeup, but can easily be amped up for an evening out with additional brow pencil or gel.
Microblading is appropriate not only for enhancing brow appearance, but also for those with fine brows, and even those with alopecia, as sparse or missing brows can be completely restored. The strokes are more visible when there is high contrast between skin and ink color.
The pigment lasts one-to-three years depending on skin type and brow color.
