WHAT IS MICROBLADING?
Microblading is the process of implanting ink under the skin of the eyebrow area with a small, sterile, disposable blade tool, to fill in the eyebrow and create a fuller shape with fine, natural looking hair strokes. Numbing solution is used to ensure that you feel little to no pain! The initial process takes between 2 hours and 2 1/2 hours. In order for your microblading to look like perfection, touch-up sessions may be needed 6-8 weeks after your initial session, once you have healed. You should expect about 30%-40% of the pigment to fade and after your touch up service and you should expect your microblading to last 8-24 months depending on aftercare and skin retention. The cost of this service includes 1 complimentary touch up service, within 6 to 8 weeks from your initial service.
This service and technique is popular and trendy right now, but has been around for for decades. It is important to know that even though many people have this service done, with great results, it is NOT for everyone and the healing results are not entirely predictable, as everyone's healing process and skin is very different.
