Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing treatment that fills in sparse eyebrows. The technique uses a hand-held tool with needles to apply pigments that simulate additional hairs. The color fades over time, and yearly touch-ups are recommended to maintain optimal results.
What is Microblading
Microblading falls under the category of permanent makeup but is in fact a semipermanent eyebrow procedure in which superficial strokes are made in the brows and filled in with a pigment complimentary to your skin and hair color to give the appearance of real hair making existing brows appear fuller and or darker. Micro blading is different from traditional eyebrow tattooing in that it is not permanent with the pigment used lasting only 12-18 months therefore not fading to pink, green or gray the way tattoo ink usually does.
Microblading is done in 2 sessions. The first session, called the “Saturation Visit, lasts two hours in which brows are shaped, topical numbing is used for little to no discomfort, and brows are then Microbladed with a specialized hand tool using tiny blades. The main hair strokes are done in this visit and you will leave with newly shaped and fuller brows. Photos will be taken when you arrive and before you leave so you will have a Microblading before and after photo to take home with you. After care instructions will also be given and the final “Perfection Visit” is scheduled for 4-8 weeks later. This visit lasts an hour. Your initial pigment will have faded and the Microblading Specialist will determine if you will need darker pigment and then add fine, very small hair strokes to give your brows the most natural look possible. Touch ups will not be needed for 12-18 months.”
