What is Microblading?
3D eyebrow embroidery or microblading is a “semi-permanent” makeup technique done with a tiny, angled blade made of a row of even tinier needles. The microblading blade is dipped in ink, and then lightly scraped across the skin in delicate strokes, mimicking hair. Results vary among different skin types, so a consultation is always necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
WHY IS MICROBLADING BETTER THAN PERMANENT EYEBROW TATTOOS?
Traditional techniques, such as rotary/digital machines and even other hand-held tattoo pens, often deliver results where the hair strokes can look stamped on or too thick. These methods can also last indefinitely which isn’t always appealing to people, especially if an undesired result is achieved.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
With microblading, the pigment is placed more superficially in the skin, so results will last 6 months to a year making it an ideal treatment with this ever-changing eyebrow phenom that we are all obsessed with.
IS MICROBLADING PAINFUL?
There is little to no pain associated with microblading. Most patients describe the feeling of microblading to be similar to plucking.
