Microblading 101

Have you heard of Microblading?!

It seems as if this process is all the rage these days! But what exactly is it? Let’s chat about it! 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 involves 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 examined 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 to 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 everyone, 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 micro pigments 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.
