Microblading

What is Microblading?

A form of eyebrow tattooing, that is performed manually with a hand tool. Pigment is implanted into the skin and intended to mimic the look of eyebrow hairs.

Is it semi-permenant?

NO! Microblading is tattooing, it is creating a change in the skin and although the color isn’t formulated the same as traditional tattoos and is intended to fade over time, it is not semi-permanent.

Who is it ideal for?

Someone who is looking to have fuller looking eyebrows, someone who has lost their eyebrows, or is generally unhappy with the look of them and would like a longer lasting option. This is not ideal for clients with very oily skin, heavily wrinkled skin, someone who does not heal well, or is allergic to tattoo inks and/or pigments.

How long does it last?

This varies per client, pigment will fade over time and client may need a touch-up every 1-2 years. Clients who use exfoliating products regularly and/or don’t use SPF regularly, have oilier skin, will not retain pigment as well.
