What is microblading?
Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattooing also known as a variety of names such as, eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, feather touch hair like strokes and 3D make-up effect. It is performed by depositing pigment superficially in the upper region of the dermis, therefore making these procedure semi permanent cosmetics
Why do Microblading?
Microblading technique is a process that may be used to create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of loss hair, to extend the eye brows, or may be used as a full reconstruction if the brow has little or no hair.
How is Microblading performed?
There aren’t any electric power tools. Microblading is performed using a sterile hand tool. At the bottom of the hand tool there is a group of needles fused together appearing to be a blade. The needles come in different sizes and depths to customize each persons needs and are fully disposable.
What to know and expect?
This is a sterile procedure; therefore it must be done in a sterile environment. The entire face and eyes will be cleaned and prepped with numbing cream for the procedure. Then the eye brows will be measured and groomed before the outline is drawn. The outline and color will then be discussed and chosen accordingly. This is the longest and most important part of the procedure. When ready the first pass will be created. When the first pass has been made a second application of numbing gel will be placed over the brows again to ensure comfort level
Does Microblading hurt?
This is a well tolerated procedure however; it can be a little uncomfortable for some people.

Why does microblading not last as long as other eyebrow tattooing techniques?
This is simply because a much smaller amount of pigment is inserted into the skin using a manual tool as compared to fully or solidly filled eyebrow tattoos with a power tool.
Can I go to the beach or use tanning booths?
UVA and UVB rays will wreck havoc on the newly introduced pigment and cause the color to fade. Tanning is a big No, No, for your new brows, particularly during the first 12 weeks. Using sunscreen will help to protect your skin as well as your brows.
Avoid and abrasive scrubs, peels, tanning beds and sun during your healing process.
