What is Microblading?
Microblading is a manual method of tattooing eyebrows with strategically placed and natural looking hair strokes.
Compared to traditional permanent makeup done by a tattoo machine, microblading offers lighter results and is not dark, powdered or solid like the former.
A very fine blade is used to deposit pigment and because the colour is deposited manually, the hair strokes heal crisp and very fine, replicating natural hair.
Each pass from the microblade replicates one single eyebrow hair and is created in a hair pattern that suits each individual’s natural hair growth pattern.
This service is for anyone who wants to fill-in, reshape or have a more defined eyebrows.
Those who suffer from alopecia, trigonometrical or any other condition that causes hair loss can greatly benefit from this procedure.
Microblading will fill in gaps and scars & can last anywhere from 1-3 years. Touch ups are normally annual and those who have had multiple brow touch-ups over the course of a few years will eventually have power brows or more permanent eyebrows.
The full appointment is approximately 2 hours

Tattooing ( approx 1 hour)
hair stokes will be made in a pattern that mimics your own to create the most realistic looking brows you can buy.
How Long Does Microblading last?
Microblade brows can last approx. 6 months to a year.
Pigment retention and fading will depend on your lifestyle, skin type, sun exposure & exfoliation.
Your skin type and cell regeneration cycle also plays a large role in how long the tattoo will last. The quicker your skin cells regenerate (each person is different), the faster your tattoo will fade. Lighter colours always fade faster than darker colours.
Healing Process | Is there Downtime?
Right after the procedure an antibiotic ointment is gently applied to protect the eyebrows from any bacteria entering this also helps kickstart the healing process.
3-7 days post procedure, peeling/flaking may be visible. You do not want to pick, pull or rub your new tattoo during this healing process. The healing/flaking/slight peeling is usually quite minimal and not very noticable. There is really no downtime. The new microbladed tattoo will lighten up about 40 % in colour by day10 & at this point show the true/healed pigment which is lighter and softer looking.
A follow-up appointment is included in the initial fee at 5-6 weeks post procedure to fill in any gaps and make any minor changes and fine tune the overall results.
Do not take hot & steamy showers or get your new eyebrows very wet for the first 7- 10 days. You may LIGHTLY cleanse the area (gentle cleanser) and always pat dry area with clean hands and tissue. You want to keep your hair & bangs away from the area & only thing that should be coming in contact with your new eyebrows is your aftercare and clean Q-tips
Do not rub, pick or soak your eyebrows during healing. Peeling & scabbing is expected & you may feel a little itch- but resist the urge to scratch, poke or peel. Doing so could potentially pull out colour and the brow may heal with missing hair stokes or pieces of pigment. No tanning beds or excess sun exposure, sweating ( hot yoga), makeup or anti-aging creams for full 10 days. Absolutely no makeup on your eyebrows. Remember, don’t let your brows become dry, always keep them moisturized with the aftercare balm until fully healed.
Please note that because of natural skin regeneration, after the recovery period eyebrows may appear lighter than original. Often, even with proper care customers develop bald spots or lose original hair strokes, which can make brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process the technician can control. Making the follow up in 5-6 weeks very important to assure you’re your brows are even & desired results are achieved.
