Microblading is called what it is because it involves using a small blade to deposit pigment into the skin. It is designed to re-create the shape and fullness of the eyebrows.

As a result, one disadvantage of microblading is that it tends to fade faster than other permanent makeup jobs. As a result, most microblading jobs need to be touched up anywhere between six and 18 months. Some have been known to last up to three years, however, that’s not very common. However, some clients prefer microblading to simple eyebrow tattooing because of its more natural look.

Believe it or not, the actual procedure is the most straightforward part of the process.

The initial consultation involves measuring the exact center of the face, the shape, and the space between the eyes. Then our artist sketches the brows showing the right thickness and arch for each of our clients.

Some clients express concern about whether it may ruin the growth of their natural eyebrow hair. The short answer is no. It doesn’t boost your natural hair’s growth, but it doesn’t inhibit it, either.

The procedure typically takes between two and a half to three hours.

Microblading is meant to be more of a temporary solution for anything from overplucked eyebrows to hair loss due to chemotherapy. However, do be aware that microblading has been known to lead to very light scars at times. In addition, skin flaking is common within a week or two after the procedure. That’s natural because of the top layer of the strokes peeling off. However, the thicker layer should veil the rest of the pigment for at least the next six months.
