What is Microblading?

Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure. A specialized and sterile tool is used to deposit semi-permanent pigment into the superficial dermis of the skin. Each stroke is carefully and crisply placed to create the most natural looking eyebrows. Microblading is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows.
Microblading is a 2 step process. It is highly recommended to complete both the initial appointment and the follow up appointment (after 5 weeks - 2months). 

It is essential to follow the both pre/post procedure instructions that is explained in the FAQ and Aftercare .

How long does it last?

This depends on skin type, life style, aftercare, sun exposure etc. It can last anywhere from 1 year to 3 years. 

Annual touch up is recommended to keep your eyebrows from fading too much.

I do my best to get the best results but can not guarantee how your skin will react to the procedure.

Does it hurt?

I use numbing cream before and during the procedure to make you as comfortable and pain free as possible. Each person's pain threshold is different, for most clients, discomfort level is moderate. 

*Please note that if you have had alcohol, any caffeinated drinks 24 hours prior to your appointment, you may be more sensitive to the pain.

How long is the procedure?

Initial procedure takes approximately 2.5 hours, touch ups take anywhere from 1.5 hour to 2 hours.

 How long is the healing time?

Everyone heals differently but it takes about 7-14 days. Your brows appear darker than expected until the brows peel/flake.

They may appear very light after they peel, as the tissue is still healing (it take about 4 weeks for your brows to heal fully).
