What to Expect From Your Procedure

Microblading, also known as 3D brows or eyebrow embroidery, is a method for enhancing eyebrows. It is all about creating the best shape for each face – a totally different approach for each client. It is permanent makeup, as compared to the traditional hair stroke technique done by machine application. It is done using a handheld tool (pen) with a very fine needle grouping to deposit pigment into the dermis. Because the color is closer to the surface, the strokes appear crisp and very fine. There is no spilling under the skin.

The pigment or ink is manually placed into the skin. The microblading manual pen is equipped with sterile packaged blades. The needle grouping glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes fine cuts, as fine as a paper cut, leaving a trace that can hardly be distinguished from real hair. People suffering from alopecia or any condition that causes hair loss can benefit greatly from microblading.

The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end - needles that don’t penetrate the skin, but just delicately scratch the surface.

Usually Microblading is done in two sessions. The first takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and pigment is applied. Four to six weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up, this takes one to two hours.
