    All you ever wanted to ask about Microblading

    The eyes are the window to the soul, and the eyebrows are the window treatments. Make sure your windows are dressed in style. Try microblading, the fastest growing brow treatment in the world.

    You know the saying “Eyes are the windows to the soul.” Well, current aesthetics has identified the eyebrows as the window frames. That’s why having beautiful eyebrows is so important in completing your “look”!

    Although there are plenty of advertisements for ways you can perfect your eyebrows, the most natural looking brows are achieved with microblading (or eyebrow embroidery).

    Microblading is the fastest growing brow treatment in the world.

    what is microblading

    What exactly is Microblading?

    Microblading is a natural way to get the eyebrows you want. It is a procedure that delivers semi-permanent results. Microblading produces trompe l’œil-like eyebrows that look just like real hairs. 

    During the microblading procedure, the aesthetician uses a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one. It’s an extremely meticulous process that takes great skill and concentration. Microblading is an art! 

    How is Microblading different from eyebrow tattooing?

    In microblading, the aesthetician uses a pen filled with pigment to draw in the eyebrows rather than a mechanical device injecting dye, which cannot offer such fine strokes.

    Microblading uses pigment rather than ink. The pigment is drawn into the basal membrane of the skin with a pen. Adding the color to this layer of the skin creates fuller looking brows. Eyebrow tattooing is done with a motorized device and uses inks, which cannot offer the fine strokes of a pen and pigment. Microblading uses a special hand tool to simulate hair strokes in the brow. Pigment has a thicker consistency, while ink is more watery in texture, because the ink is placed deeper in the skin, it tends to have more staying power. Unlike tattooing, with microblading there is no “leaking” of the pigment under the skin and the strokes look crisp and clear. Naturally, the pigment will exfoliate out of the skin over time, which will cause the pigment to lighten. 

    How is Microblading done?

    Microblading uses a special hand tool to deposit pigment in an artistic method that simulates hair strokes in the brow.

    What can I expect from Microblading?

    Microblading, done by our talented microblading artist, can deliver beautiful, artfully drawn eyebrows that don’t need to be recreated every day! You can save so much time – and look your best every single day!

    How long does the actual Microblading procedure take?

    The first procedure should take about 2 to 3 hours. Believe it or not, much of that time is spent just on planning the microblading procedure, deciding on the shape and color of the brow, and other details. If the planning is done properly, the actual procedure takes about an hour.

    You aren’t limited in any activities after the microblading procedure. It takes about a week or two for the brows to heal, and about one month for the color to fully set in.

    The second microblading session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session lasts about 1.5 – 2 hours. It is just for touch ups and to be sure that everything looks perfect.

    How long will eyebrows last with Microblading?

    A properly done microblading generally lasts between 3 to 5 years, depending on the color of the skin, hair, the pigment that best matches your hair, as well as the creams and cleansers used.

    Is the Microblading procedure painful?

    Before the microblading procedure begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anesthetic. You might feel a slight discomfort during the microblading procedure, but it is almost painless.
