Microblading: is a semi-permanent makeup procedure whereby hair-like incision strokes are created along the eyebrow to attempt to either enhance, reshape or create a natural looking appearance on the brows. The procedure entails the use of a nanoblade, which is dipped into a pigment that has been matched to natural hair color and skin tone and is then glided along a sketched outline of the brow that has been drawn on and scrutinized beforehand.
This 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 reconstruction if the brows have little/no hair. Each microblading stroke is applied individually, allowing the technician to control the shape, color and density of the completed eyebrows.
The treatment begins with mapping the desired shape by taking measurements that are unique to each individual, then using individual tattoo strokes or ‘feathers’ in the area to complete the shape and style requested. The color choice is patient-specific and is mixed using a natural selection of micropigments to complement hair color and skin tone to give the best look.
Microblading will typically last anywhere from 12-36 months. The average is 18 months.
