What is Microblading?

Microblading, is a hairstroke eyebrow tattoo, it is a form cosmetic tattoo. Hairstrokes are manually tattooed into the eyebrows, to produce the appearance of fuller looking brows, and to enhance the natural shape of brows. Pigment is implanted into the surface layer of the dermis and will last from 1-3 years.

Is Microblading permanent?

Microblading is semi-permanent, during microblading the pigment is put into the surface

layer of the dermis. Depending on skin conditions and as well as other external factors the pigment may last from 1-3 years. Individuals who spend a lot of time in the sun, sweat a lot, have excessive oiling or sebum, have abrasive facial treatments such as chemical peelings, will have pigment disappear faster then individuals who do not. Following aftercare instruction properly is crucial, and will yield the best possible result with the best pigment retention.

any areas where stroked may have faded or flaked off. If you have not booked your touch up

Refreshing color can be done as soon as 6 months after initial treatment, but is color refreshing recommended yearly.​

Does it hurt?

The sensation of microblading is said to be similar to t tweezing eyebrows, a topical

anesthetic will be used after the first pass. Note if you are on your menstrual cycle you may

be more sensitive to pain.

40-50% darker for the first 7-10 days following the treatment. Over the first week after

brows have been tattooed your skin may go through many changes, the strokes may even

disappear and reappear. After the first week your brows will lighten up to their true result.

After 4 weeks you will come back in for the touch up appointment where any changes can

be discussed.

The shape of eyebrows is calculated according to the morphology of the face and the golden

mean, the number φ (1,618).

Symmetry is determined digitally when the facial muscles are relaxed (when the client’s eyes

are closed).

How is color chosen?

The color is determined only according to the natural color of the hairs in the eyebrows.

Is it sanitary?

I Understand the importance and take pride in having sanitary conditions, this means

disinfecting the workstations and surrounding area before and between each treatment. As

well as having single use, disposable tools.

I am Blood Borne Pathogens certified aswell.
