What is microblading?

Have you ever wondered: what is microblading? Well imagine having fuller looking, perfectly shaped brows everyday… no worries about your makeup smudging, or getting them wet, or re-applying makeup throughout the day.

Microblading is a manual,  semi-permanent tattoo in the brow that is applied by hand (not machine), using a hand tool, with a pre-packaged, sterile, single use ‘blade’ and yields a realistic and natural result that can give the brow a fuller appearance.  With this technique small, realistic hair lines are drawn in the brow, mimicking real individual hairs, creating fuller, natural looking and beautifully shaped brows.

This technique enables us to create crisp, fine “hair” strokes that can help to fill in thin brows or brows with bald spots. It also allows us to create total brow reconstruction for those who have completely bare brows and/or have been impacted by a condition which has reduced or eliminated their brow hair growth.

Prior to the procedure we will shape and customize your brows to a size and shape that compliments your facial features and frames your eyes well. We will also discuss and select a colour that best matches your natural complexion and skin tone, bearing in mind undertones and skin conditions. Once you are completely satisfied with how you will look, we will begin the process of microblading. Topical anaesthetics are applied before and during the procedure. Microblading is not painful and will not damage your existing natural brow hair.

Immediately following the procedure, brows will appear darker, bolder and more defined, but will fade approximately 20-30% lighter in 2-4 weeks.

A microblading procedure requires approximately two hours. Microblading is a two-step process and includes a perfection procedure 6 weeks after the initial procedure. Pigment retention depends on skin type, age, aftercare, sun exposure, use of certain skin products, pigments used, immune system, medication and other factors.  Annual colour refreshing is recommended.
