Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique used to improve shape, definition, and increase the appearance of fullness in eyebrows. During the microblading procedure, thin strokes of pigment are applied to the skin, mimicking the appearance of brow hairs for a naturally full shape.
What is microblading?
Sometimes referred to as eyebrow embroidery, microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo which deposits fine brow-like strokes of pigment to the brow line. Pigments are chosen based on the natural or desired brow colour, for a full and authentic-looking set of brows, whatever the amount of natural hair present. Unlike traditional tattoos which penetrate deep into the skin, microblading deposits pigment nearer to the surface of the skin. As your skin cells shed and regenerate, the pigment slowly makes its way out of the skin.
How long does microblading last?
Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on age and skin type. Skincare routine will also affect the longevity of your results. Products with AHA or Glycolic Acid cause your skin to resurface more quickly, therefore causing the pigment underneath the skin to be exposed.
How many microblading treatments will I need?
We recommend a touch-up appointment 6 weeks following the initial appointment, with subsequent touch-ups every 12-18 months for those wanting to maintain the appearance long-term.
What does microblading feel like?
Before the microblading procedure, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the brow area. Some clients describe a light scratching sensation throughout the procedure, while others feel little to no sensation at all.
How long does microblading take to heal?
Following the procedure the pigment will appear very dark, and the eyebrow area will be slightly red. Within 7-10 days, the color will fade by up to 40%, and after one month the true colour will reveal itself.
