Create thin, hair-like semi permanent eyebrows.
Microblading is an advanced brow technique which uses a superfine row of needles to deposit pigments into the epidermis creating thin, hair-like semi permanent marks which last up to 12-18 months.
Those interested in microblading want fuller, natural-looking eyebrows but don't want the hassle of filling them in every single morning, or the worry that the pigment won't last all day. If you benefit from a brow pencil, then you will benefit from microblading.
Microblading can last anywhere from one to three years, depending on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, and the products that you use. However, touch-ups are commonly needed about once a year, especially for those with oily skin, as the ink tends to fade and blur faster.
The procedure begins with a consultation with the client on the eyebrow shape that will be drawn on. In order to create a true natural-looking brow, we like to follow the direction of the natural brow hairs and takes into consideration the client's face symmetry and age. We also consult with the client on the pigment of the ink, which she explains is chosen based off of the natural color of the brow hairs and the skin's undertone.
Then, we move onto drawing the strokes in using the microblading pen, which can take anywhere from 30-40 minutes, depending on the eyebrow area. After the eyebrows are finished, we apply an aftercare ointment to help healing and a follow-up appointment is scheduled for four to six weeks later.
