What is MicroBlading? 

Eyebrows really are the most important facial feature that defines our expression. If you need to update them there is now a very recent method that will get you a super realistic effect with long lasting results. Getting your full brows was never this easy. The brows can be arched and feathered, straight and bold or simply natural looking!

What results can I expect? 

Microblading shapes the perfect fuller brows with semi-permanent results. You might even have heard about “eyebrow embroidery”, “microstroking" or “hair like strokes”  — all of these are alternative names for this method.

It is perfect for those who want to fully define or reconstruct the eyebrow shape.  Covering gaps or filling-in over plucked areas are another problem solved with microblading.

What is the difference between tattooing and microblading?

Microblading is a form of tattoing, yes, but a finer art that is at disposal for natural results. The difference between these two is that microblading doesn’t use any machines — the pigment is placed right under your skin with the help of super fine needles that are handheld.  The pigment will not go as deep as a normal tattoo so avoid thinking they are the same.

How is it done? 

The professionals draw hair-like strokes with the specific tools to mimic actual hairs in the brows. Placing the color really close to the skin with super fine needles will result in drawn-on hairs that appear very real and multidimensional. 

Does it hurt? 

Of course, any eyebrow procedure for shaping is going to hurt.  Don’t be afraid of microblading though - yes, some people will hurt more than others. Overall the procedure feels like something is scratching the area. It is more annoying than actually painful.  For those who are more sensitive to pain, there are topical numbing creams that can be applied to the area for more comfort. 

Does it last?

Each session can last up to 2 hours but the effects are semi-permanent. Which means that the new eyebrows can last up to 3 years (with maintenance and touch-ups every six months or so).  For better results, keep all aggressions like deep cleansing or rubbing the area at a minimum.
