Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique that creates bolder, fuller, natural-looking eyebrows to enhance your existing brows or create eyebrows where no hair is present. Microblading at The Peer Group is performed by Kristi A. Breen, a New Jersey state-licensed technician with more than 25 years of experience in the plastic surgery and medical skincare industry. Your personalized treatment plan will include a sketch of eyebrows that suit the shape of your face so you can see what your new brows will look like. The microblading procedure takes approximately one and a half hours. This delicate and precise treatment process creates brows that can last up to two years. Touch-up appointments will be necessary to keep your brows looking bold and vibrant. We invite you to learn more about microblading with a consultation at our Florham, NJ office.

"Dr. Colon is an excellent plastic surgeon. He is extremely skilled with a sharp aesthetic eye. I trust him completely with everything and have recommended him to many friends. In addition, he is honest, forthright and will not perform any procedures or tweak anything he feels unnecessary. That is important, as some doctors push procedures that aren't needed strictly for the business. The staff at The Peer Group are all wonderful, warm and caring as well."- N.A. / Yelp / Jan 17, 2020

Microblading is a slightly different technique that is still in the tattooing family. With microblading, micropigments matching your eyebrow color are implanted into the skin by hand using a precision hand tool instead of a machine. The beauty of microblading is that the hair-like strokes are so fine and detailed that it's deemed the most realistic treatment yet. It’s also often referred to as eyebrow embroidery or microstroking. Our technician meticulously draws each hair stroke onto the skin following the direction and length of the existing hairs. Microblading can create beautiful brows that mimic a natural brow and will suit the shape of your face even if no hairs are present.
How Many Treatments?
After your initial microblading treatment, a follow-up visit is recommended within three months for a touch-up application (more than one touch-up may be required for best results). The frequency of your appointments will vary depending upon several factors, which your technician will discuss with you.
What Can I Expect?
Your brows will appear bolder and darker than expected in the first week after treatment. This is normal. It will gradually lighten during the healing process. Be sure to follow the detailed before-and-after care instructions provided.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Every patient has a different level of sensitivity to the microblading procedure. A topical anesthetic is provided to maximize comfort during treatment. Cosmetic tattoos are no more painful than a tattoo on any other part of the body. Patients should talk to the technician during the consultation about what they can expect and any pain relief they may want.
