What is Microblading?
Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing treatment, typically lasting 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done using a hand tool with ultra fine needles that is dipped in pigment and each "hair" is gently etched into the skin, giving a hyper realistic look. Microblading is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, over tweezed brows or thinning brows from age. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow color, skin tone will also be taken into consideration.

Who is a candidate for microblading?

Do I need a touch up?
Your touchup after 6-8 weeks is included in the initial cost, at this appointment we will work on any areas where microblading strokes may have faded or rejected pigment.
Does it hurt?
The sensation of microblading is said to be similar to that of tweezing eyebrows, anesthetic will be used after the first pass, so the beginning of the appointment can be somewhat painful depending on your pain tolerance.
Note if you are on your menstrual cycle you may be more sensitive to pain.
Do I get to choose the color?
The color is determined by your color preference, natural hair color and skin tone.
