Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique used for the eyebrows. Microblading can be used on someone with little to no eyebrows by creating an illusion of a more defined and fuller brow.
Many of us spend a lot of time and money plucking, waxing, threading, and filling in our eyebrows.
How does it work?
With using a manual tattoo technique, tiny hair-like strokes are made while pigment is deposited into the epidermal layer of the skin. Due to the pigment fading over time, it is recommended to have a touch-up done every 1-2 years to maintain results.
What to Expect On The Day of The Procedure
- The first hour is used to draw the shape with a removable pencil. We custom design your brow shape based on your bone structure, eye placement, face shape, and other factors. The pigment choice is then selected. Once your shape and pigment are agreed upon, you will then be numbed using a lidocaine cream.
- Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. You might feel a slight discomfort but it is almost painless.
- The next step is playing pigment under your skin. It is not like a regular tattoo, a pigment is implanted under your skin with a microblading pen that tool is being used to draw on individual strokes one by one. This process can take up to two hours.
- Initially stronger in color your new brows will soften in 2-3 weeks. The results will last up to 3 years before they start to fade.
