What is Microblading?
Microblading is the latest and most sought after eyebrow procedure hitting the beauty and cosmetic industry yet. Eyebrow enhancement procedures have been around for a multitude of years, of course varying in difference. Microblading allows each individual person to re-create, or enhance the brows appearance with natural hair like strokes. This procedure is a semi-permanent procedure, which means it is expected to fade over a period of time. It is expected to last 1-2 years (varies with each patient), follow up procedures are expected and recommended. Once the desired brow shape is mapped and measured onto the face, a manual hand instrument that has tiny micro-needles are used to insert pigment into the upper dermis layer of the skin. This is what gives the procedure natural hair like strokes in the brow. Microblading is a two session procedure, each procedure lasts about 2-3 hours long. Typically the follow up session is scheduled for 4-6 weeks after the first initial session. After each procedure there will be a “healing period” that can last 1-2 weeks varying on the patient.
