Microblading is a wonderful procedure that beautifully transforms any eyebrows by adding hair-like strokes to create fullness and dimension. Also, Microbladed brows are extremely practical because they allow you to get up and go without the task of having to fill in your eyebrows.
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup, achieved by manually inserting pigment into the second (dermal) layer of the skin. The hair-like incisions are made using micro-needles that are aligned to create a "blade", hence the term Microblading. In simpler terms, Microblading is like making tiny paper cuts in your eyebrows while filling them with pigment at the same time.
Does it hurt?
Some discomfort is to be expected; some more than others, as everyone's tolerance level is different.
Do you numb the area?
Yes. The brow area is numbed twice; once before, and then again during the procedure. Both numbing applications are topical.
How long does Microblading last?
Typically it can last 18 months - 2+years, depending mainly on skin type and sun exposure. Other factors do affect the longevity of Microblading, however these are most common.
If I don't have any eyebrows can I get Microblading?
Yes, and it can look very natural.
How long is the healing process?
6-8 weeks, more or less depending on how well you care for them during the healing process, your general health, and other factors such as smoking. Most people tend to heal completely within 6 weeks.
What is the difference between Microblading and traditional tattooing?
Traditional tattoos are done by using a machine to deposit ink deep into the third layer of skin and are permanent.
Microblading is done by using a manual tool which deposits pigment into the second (dermal) layer of skin and is semi-permanent. Because the pigment is only deposited into the second (dermal) layer of the skin, and is specifically designed for this purpose, over time it will fade completely, without leaving behind unwanted colors like traditional tattoos do.
