What is Microblading?

Updated: Sep 20


Microblading is a cosmetic tattoo done with a manual handheld tool (not machine operated) that replicates a pen - consisting of tiny needles stacked side-by-side resembling a blade (microblade). The needles scratch the top most while simultaneously implanting pigment into the skin with hair like strokes.

How is Microblading done?


We first analyze the bone structure, muscle placement and features of the face, what we are looking for is the natural contours where the eyebrow sits. One-by-one a hair stroke is drawn with a dipped microblade. The artist follows the natural hair growth of the eyebrow to mimic the existing hairs to create seamless and undetectable hairs.



Who is Microblading for?


Microblading is great for clients who have about 60% or more hair. Although there are some factors to consider and it may not be for everyone. We recommend Microblading for normal skin to small pores. If you have oily skin, thin skin, large pores and/or mature skin, the strokes can blur or migrate. Luckily, we offer other techniques using the machine that can give you better results. If you are unsure, you can always meet with us and go through the different treatment options to find the best one for you.

How many sessions are needed?


Our packages include 2 sessions (I Initial and I follow-up). With Microblading, the strokes lay on the top-most part of the skin. This area is prone to natural exfoliation and causes fading, multiple sessions may be needed to evenly distribute the pigment. Depending on the clients skin condition and health additional touch ups may be needed to further saturate the strokes.


How long does Microblading last?


It can last 2-3 years depending on skin type and lifestyle. Microblading will fade from regenerating skin creams, UV light and natural skin exfoliation. We recommend a refresher every 6-12 months to crisp up the strokes and to deepen the colour.
