Brows are often an underutilized beauty option, but they can create one of the most dramatic improvements to your face. A gorgeous brow that is shaped properly, filled in, and of color that is complementary to your overall look can sometimes create a mini-facelift because of how it can transform your look. Two shapely and properly groomed eyebrows will enhance and define your eyes and now, microblading can assist with this process. For those who have sparse or thin eyebrows due to overplucking, genetics, aging, or other reasons, microblading at Dr. Robert J. Paresi, Jr. M.D. is a cosmetic procedure that can help you get beautiful eyebrows that look natural. This treatment is performed with semi-permanent ink and a skilled technician who can fill in and define or rebuild your eyebrows. We offer microblading for Downers Grove, IL patients who would like defined, natural-looking brows. Schedule an initial consultation at our office to find out more about the microblading process and to get your personalized plan.
"Fantastic service all around. Very kind and professional atmosphere, Dr. Paresi really cares for his patients and goes above and beyond to make sure they’re happy and comfortable with results. The nurses are all fantastic as well."- A.V. / Google / Jan 07, 2020
"Caring, Friendly and Professional Experience - From my initial meeting with Dr. Paresi's office all the way through surgery and post-op, Dr. Paresi and his entire staff were kind, friendly and professional. All questions were thoroughly answered from the beginning, including the procedure and outcome. The staff ensured that I had all my necessary prescriptions beforehand and was well taken care of before, during and after the procedure. The surgery was seamless and my recovery time was not very long at all. Within two days, I felt normal, minus some regular bruising and swelling to be expected. I would highly recommend Dr. Paresi for cosmetic and health needs related to rhinoplasty and septoplasty."- E. / RealSelf / Apr 23, 2020
"Woman Grows Younger!!! - Doctor Parisi has performed two procedures for me. He was candid and explained everything to me in advance. Doctor Paresi is an artist. His approach is both clinical as well as creative. I was impressed just observing his plan for my body. I am 73 and not one person believes my age. Doctor changed my life with his techniques and I am now so much more confident I never felt that he was looking for money. In fact, there were times that he said that there was no reason to have another procedure.Doctor took as much time with me so that I was always ready for what the immediate result would be which totally helped me to understand and trust."- D.D. / RealSelf / Apr 08, 2020
"Dr. Paresi and his staff are amazing! So friendly, and made me feel comfortable. It was my first time getting any type of surgery, so the day of I was extremely nervous. I was 18 at the time, and decided to have a breast reduction (I was a 34H bra size, I am 5’2”/150lbs, it was very difficult to find clothing for me). I am now 2 1/2 months post-op, and I am very pleased with the results. I now wear a 34DD. My breasts are finally proportionate to my body and life is so much easier. No more back pain, headaches, or daily inconveniences. They are healing up beautifully. This was probably the best decision I ever made, and Dr. Paresi and his staff did a wonderful job. I will definitely be returning in the future for any other plastic surgery I decide to get. I would recommend Dr.Paresi 10/10 times. Him and his staff are very experienced and always there to help you/answer any questions. Thank you Dr. Paresi and staff for your hard work and amazing customer service!"- C.P. / Google / Mar 11, 2020

Microblading Ideal Candidates
A microblading treatment is a good choice for women and men in the Downers Grove, IL area who would like a more defined or fuller appearance for their brows that can last years while looking natural. Most clients at our office who try microblading usually have weak brows that need to appear thicker or have specific areas that need to be filled in. Eyebrows with bald spots or thin areas can be caused by scars, genetics, overplucking, injuries, aging, and nutritional deficiencies. Compared to cosmetic tattooing for eyebrows, microblading gives you a natural-looking result, using feathered strokes, which provides total coverage or just filling in certain sections of your eyebrows. Microblading may also be used to create more curve to the eyebrows for a different shape. The best candidates are in good general health, not pregnant, and don't have high blood sugar levels since this can affect the healing process.
Microblading Procedure Technique
Prior to your microblading procedure, you will have an initial consultation to examine the appearance of your brows. Depending on the state of your brows combined with your cosmetic goals, a unique plan of treatment will be crafted for your microblading procedure. The session will be completed in our minor procedures room with a local anesthesia or numbing cream to limit any discomfort. Based on how much treatment is being done, the microblading procedure can last from an estimated 1 – 3 hours. To begin the procedure, your brows will be combed and trimmed as needed. Next, the shape will be drawn with pencil and precisely measured so that they are symmetric and proportionate to your natural facial features. This "sketch" used with removable cosmetic ink will act as a border for where the microblading will be performed. We use professional-quality cosmetic inks combined with a skilled technician to give you thin, natural-looking ink strokes that look like separate hair follicles and mimic the look of real brows for gorgeous, outstanding results.
What to Expect with Microblading
Right after your microblading session, you are able to leave our office and perform normal activities without any downtime needed. You may have some redness around the brows; however, this normally goes away in a few hours. Your brows may appear darker immediately after your treatment, but they will lighten to your goal color in around two weeks. It is very important that the brows remain moist with ointment given by our staff during the initial healing process. About a month after the first treatment session, patients will return for their touch-up appointment. This appointment is very exciting for our clients as it finalizes and perfects the initial results. Microblading results, on average, last around a full year. Additional sessions may be performed as needed to keep the appearance of your brows looking fresh and beautiful.
