Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, etching or feathering is a technique whereby semi permanent pigments are placed just below the dermis of the skin with a very fine "blade" made up of a number of needles. Using small feather like strokes to mimic the growth of a persons already existing hair (if any) creates very natural looking eyebrows.
How long does it last?
Results can last from 1-3 years depending on skin type and lifestyle (exposure to sun, cosmetic procedures, skin care regime). A touch up 4-6 weeks after the first procedure is necessary for best results, and an annual touch up is recommended to retain pigment saturation.
Who is it for?
Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, cover scars, fill in over tweezed eyebrows or slightly define what they already have.
P R O C E D U R E
Microblading is an extremely meticulous process. Each appointment takes approximately 2 hours. The first and most important hour is spent discussing what the client desires, measuring, and outlining the eyebrows with removable pencil. During this time, the best shape and colour for every client is chosen. Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. We use an FDA and Health Canada Approved product. The second hour is spent microblading the skin. Clients have access to a mirror at all times, and have the final say in shape, size, and colour.
