Microblading in New Jersey with Dr. Purewal
Microblading is a procedure that is used to make the natural eyebrows appear thicker, darker and well-defined. At Fresh Face & Eye in Chatham, New Jersey, Dr. Baljeet K. Purewal uses her experience, skill and artistic vision to create the dark, well-defined and thick eyebrows her patients desire. As a board-certified Oculoplastics and Reconstructive Surgeon, Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery and Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Specialist as well as an experienced Eyebrow Artist, Dr. Baljeet Purewal’s extensive knowledge in relation to skin health, the bone structure of the face and skin enhancement procedures allows her to provide her patients with exceptional microblading results.
What is Microblading?
Men and women are both benefiting from this revolutionary procedure. During a New Jersey microblading procedure, brows are enhanced using a semi-permanent tattooing technique. After a microblading procedure, the individual will no longer need to apply makeup to his or her brows to make them appear darker, more well-defined and/or thicker.
During this procedure, Dr. Purewal creates individual hairs along the existing hairs of the brow. She forms and shapes the patient’s brows to enhance his or her natural facial characteristics, to complement the patient’s skin tone as well as the structure of his or her face.
Who Should Consider Having a Microblading Procedure?
Women who have sparse eyebrows that they would like to have filled in or those who would like more defined, shapelier brows are usually good candidates for an eyebrow microblading procedure in New Jersey.
Men who naturally have patches of hair missing in their brows and those who now have bare spots due to previous piercings might want to consider having an eyebrow microblading procedure with Dr. Purewal at her office in New Jersey.
Who May Not Be an Ideal Candidate for a Northern NJ Microblading Procedure?
There are several issues that could disqualify someone from being an ideal candidate for this procedure.
Examples of Individuals Who Are Not Considered Ideal Candidates for This NJ Procedure
1. Individuals with Keloid Scars in the Treatment Area
Sometimes, scar tissue builds up beneath keloid scars. For this reason, microblading in areas that have these scars is not recommended.
2. Women Who Are Currently Breastfeeding or Pregnant
Dr. Purewal prefers that her patients wait until after their baby is born and/or they have finished breastfeeding to have this procedure performed.
3. An Individual with a Bleeding Disorder/Taking Blood Thinners
Individuals who take blood thinners may bleed too much during the procedure, this excessive bleeding pushes the pigment out; thus, making it extremely difficult to attain the desired result.
4. Individuals Who Have an Autoimmune Disease
Unfortunately, the skin of individuals who have an autoimmune disease is negatively affected by the disease, which compromises the health of the skin.
5. An Individual Who Has Used Accutane Within the 12 months Leading Up to the Potential Treatment Date for a Microblading Procedure in NJ
Accutane thins the top layer of the skin. Therefore, after using this product, the skin needs time to completely heal before a microblading procedure in New Jersey can be performed.
6. An Individual Who Has Had a BOTOX Treatment Within Two Weeks of a Potential Northern NJ Microblading Procedure
Waiting two weeks after a BOTOX treatment is required because it can take that long for the targeted facial muscles to fully relax.
7. Individuals Experiencing Dermatitis or Sunburned Skin in the Treatment Area
If an individual has dermatitis or a sunburn in the areas that are to be addressed with microblading, he or she will have to wait for the skin to heal. The patient’s skin must be completely healed; otherwise, the results attained during the procedure will not last.
8. Anyone Who Has an Allergy to Lidocaine, Nickel and/or Epinephrine
During this procedure, tiny needles consisting of nickel are used to create small cuts in the skin. Therefore, individuals who have an allergy to nickel are not good candidates for this procedure. In addition, the numbing agents used to ensure an individual remains comfortable throughout this procedure contain epinephrine and lidocaine. As such, anyone who is allergic to these medications is not a good candidate for procedures requiring the use of these medications.
What Are the Benefits of Having an Eyebrow Microblading Procedure?
Following this procedure, patients no longer have concerns related to smudged eyebrow makeup because the daily hassle of eyebrow grooming has ended, the shape of the eyebrow is improved, once the healing process is complete, the pigment used to create the tattoo maintains its color and the results typically last from 18 to 24 months. Nonetheless, with proper care, eyebrow tattoos can last up to three years. Furthermore, there is very little to no downtime following this procedure.

A New Jersey Consultation with Dr. Baljeet Purewal
During the initial consultation, Dr. Baljeet Purewal takes the time to get to know each patient. She needs to know what the patient wants to accomplish with a New Jersey microblading procedure.
Patients are encouraged to ask questions about the microblading procedure, about other procedures that they have considered and/or procedures they just want to learn more about.
At Fresh Face & Eye, patients never need to worry about being coerced into having another procedure, Dr. Purewal and her staff refrain from bringing up any procedure a patient has previously asked about unless more information is requested.
A Microblading Procedure in NJ

Microblading Procedure Steps
1. Outlining the Brow
A pencil and special ruler may be used to outline the new shape of the brow.
2. Sharing the Brow Outline with the Patient
Dr. Purewal outlines the potential shape of the new brow and then shows the outline to the patient. If the patient likes the outline, Dr. Baljeet Purewal will go ahead and move on to the next step of the procedure; however, if he or she does not, Dr. Purewal will ask what changes the patient would like her to make to the outline. Dr. Baljeet K. Purewal uses that information to create another potential eyebrow outline. This process continues until the patient decides that he or she is happy with the outline.
Dr. Purewal encourages her patients to be candid with her about their desires because she can only provide them with the results they want if she knows what those results are. Therefore, patients should never okay an outline to speed things along or because they feel uncomfortable about asking Dr. Baljeet Purewal to create another one. The results attained with this procedure can last up to three years; therefore, Dr. Baljeet Purewal wants her patients to enjoy their results. She realizes that sometimes attaining optimal results requires additional time.
When the patient is happy with the outline, the next step begins.
3. Makeup is Used to Fill the Eyebrows
After the lines are marked, cosmetics are used to fill in the brows.
4. Grooming and Waxing the Eyebrows
The brows may be groomed and then waxed.
5. Topical Anesthetic is Applied
Once the grooming and waxing is complete, Dr. Purewal applies the topical anesthetic. This anesthetic numbs the brow area, which helps the patient remain comfortable throughout the procedure.
6. Customizing the Pigment
Dr. Purewal creates a custom-designed pigment to match the color of the patient’s natural hair.
After the topical anesthetic takes effect, the microblading procedure in New Jersey begins.
Dr. Baljeet Purewal’s skill, experience performing this revolutionary technique and artistic vision provide her with everything she needs to create her patients the full, well-defined and natural-looking eyebrows they desire.
7. Implanting the Pigment
Using a tool that acts like a pen, Dr. Purewal introduces pigment into the skin. This specially designed tool has 10 to 12 tiny needles in its tip. Dr. Purewal dips the needles into the customized pigment she created and begins using ultra-fine strokes to enhance the brow. As these tiny needles penetrate the surface of the skin, they implant the medical-grade pigment within.
This specially designed microblading tool allows Dr. Baljeet Purewal to create an eyebrow tattoo with such precision that once complete, the results closely resemble the look of natural eyebrow hair. She continues using this technique to fill in the areas of the brow that have become thin or are bare.
8. Defining and Shaping the Eyebrows
After Dr. Purewal has filled in the areas that are lacking, she defines and shapes the brows.
The patient may need to return at some point in the next four to six weeks for a follow-up session.
During the follow-up session, Dr. Baljeet Purewal will evaluate the results attained with the initial New Jersey microblading procedure and determine if the patient needs a touch-up to address areas that may need a bit more pigment.
What is the Difference Between Microblading and Microshading?
Microblading and microshading vary in that instead of creating a stroke to resemble a natural eyebrow hair, microshading involves using a stippling technique to fill an area in.
During a microshading procedure, the ink is pressed into the skin. The results attained with this procedure are soft and powdery, closely resembling the look that is achieved after applying makeup to a natural eyebrow.
Recovering from a New Jersey Microblading Treatment
Individuals should expect to experience some irritation and redness in the eyebrow area after their treatment. In addition, the color of the eyebrows may be darker than what was expected; however, this overly dark color only lasts for the first few days following the procedure. The color lightens by as much as 50 percent after the natural scabbing and flaking process of the pigment is complete.
How Long Will the Results Last?
The longevity of the results attained during this procedure depend on several factors. For example, individuals who have oily skin tend to experience faster fading than those with normal to dry skin. Other issues that affect longevity include the types of facial products the patient uses and his or her overall lifestyle. For example, people who spend a great deal of time in the sun may need to have their eyebrows touched up more frequently than someone who does not.
Maintaining the Results
Individuals who would like to keep their eyebrows looking perfect usually return for a touch up at the six- or 12-month mark.
How Expensive is Microblading?
Every patient is unique, which is why at Fresh Face & Eye, custom-designed treatment plans are created. However, since each treatment plan is personalized for a particular patient, in order to determine the cost of a treatment, Dr. Purewal needs to meet with the individual and discuss his or her desires. After the initial consultation, Dr. Purewal will be able to provide information related to the cost of a microblading treatment in New Jersey.
