What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that allows you to dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows. Eyebrow Microblading is performed by manually depositing pigment in the basal layer of the epidermis by a special tool. Unlike permanent eyebrow tattoos, Microblading involves implanting pigment to look like individual hairs. The blade of a Microblading pen contains numerous needles that are 3 times thinner than the needles used for tattooing. Technicians use a numbing solution to limit discomfort. Clients usually require a touch-up within the first eight weeks. It can last up to 18 months.
Who should not get Microblading?
People who are under the age of 18, pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetics not under control, prone to keloids, and anyone whose health may prevent them from healing properly.
