Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique done with a manual pen instead of a machine, that creates hair like strokes to fill in sparse or thinning brows and to add extra density. Topical numbing cream is applied first to limit some discomfort, then the mapping of your new brows begins! Each person's mapping is done specifically for their individual face shape and where their brows would naturally lay on the brow bone. After the mapping the actual microblading begins. The procedure itself is a series of small hair like strokes made with a fine blade (the blade is made up of tiny needles placed side by side), and then filled in with pigment. The pigment is mixed and made to match each individual's brow hair color. This process is usually about 30 minutes in length, and is the shortest part of the entire appointment. Clients can expect at least 2 sessions to achieve their perfect brows. Depending on skin type, some people require an additional session. We recommend a yearly touch up to maintain your microblading, but most people get 1-3 years before the microblading fades. The end result is natural looking, full brows!
