WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading, also referred to as microstroking, eyebrow embroidery, brow feathering, 3D brows, or micro pigmentation, is a semi-permanent method for filling in sparse eyebrows. Hair-like strokes are created manually with a hand held tool. The tip of the Microblading tool has a row of needles that deposit pigment into the dermis layer of the skin. With stroking movements, natural-looking hair strokes are achieved!
It's a fairly comfortable procedure, with the use of a topical numbing agent. We will work together every step of the way to make sure your Microblading experience is comfortable and yields the best results.
Microblading is semi-permanent and lasts up to 2 years, which luckily for you, is easy to maintain. Yearly touch ups are recommended to replace faded pigment. The length of time they last depends on many factors such as your skins sebum level, sun exposure, skin elasticity, etc. At a consultation with your specialist, you will discuss your #browgoals followed by brow mapping, measuring, and drawing... then the two of you will create the most YOUnique set of brows! You will then be instructed on how to help them heal perfectly.
The best results come from clients with thinning hair, usually due to a medical condition or genetics. We love to work with these particular clients because the less hair you have, the more room there is for creativity! (We offer a significant discount to clients with a medical reason for hair loss!). Currently, this is the best method to get realistic brows you only dream of!
