What is Microblading?
Microblading technique is a process that may be used to improve or create eyebrow definition, to cover gaps of lost hair, to extend the eyebrows or may be used as a full brow reconstruction if the brows have little or no hair. Each microblading stroke is applied individually with a hand held tool using ultra fine needles, allowing the technician to control the shape, colour, and density of the completed eyebrows.
The procedure begins with developing the desired brow shape, then using individual tattoo strokes or "feathers" in the area to plot the shape and style requested. The colour choice is client specific and is mixed using a natural selection of semi permanent mirco pigments to complement hair colour and skin tone. Varying shades of hypoallergenic micro pigments react differently with each skin type and fade accordingly, depending on skin regimen, sun exposure, environment, and aftercare precautions. Immediately post procedure, eyebrows will appear darker than expected, but will fade 2 shades during the healing process over the following two weeks. The second application, 6 weeks later, includes a touch up to ensure micro pigments are healing properly and responding well.
Microblading, although semi permanent, lasts between 1-3 years if proper aftercare instructions are maintained. The treatment is typically a two step application process. The initial appointment includes a consultation and initial application, the second appointment is done 6 weeks after to touch up and ensure longevity of the colours used.

Pregnant or nursing
Skin conditions such as ezcema or psoriasis around the area
