What is Microblading?
Microblading, also known as feathering – is the process of implanting cosmetic pigment into the brows to mimic natural hair strokes. This procedure uses a hand tool to deposit the pigment into the top layer of the skin, which will blend seamlessly with the natural hair.
Who is a good candidate for microblading?
Microblading will enhance thin or sparse brows, correct asymmetric brows and or for people who may have little to no hair.
How long does microblading last?
As with any cosmetic tattoo procedure, the longevity will significantly depend on your skin and lifestyle factors. Generally, microblading can last two to three years. We recommended you touch up after 6 – 8 weeks after your first session, where we can perfect any strokes that didn’t hold colour.
What is involved with Microblading?
We commence the appointment with a consultation of your desired look shape and colour. We will then map out the brows and create a stencil to follow using the golden ratio rule and string methods to ensure the brow uniquely suits you per your facial features.
Using a microblade, we create hair-like strokes to mimic the natural hair throughout the brow until the desired shape and thickness is achieved.
Does microblading require aftercare?
Microblading is a very low maintenance alternative to spending hours in the mirror perfecting your brows with makeup in the morning. You will need to refresh every 12-18 months to keep the strokes crisp and defined as well to boost the colour.
People with skin conditions or on medications or who may have a medical condition should advise their therapist as this treatment cannot be done on all skin types.
Particularly those who may be on medications such as Accutane or retinol which sensitise the skin and those with skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, keratosis pilaris and dermatitis.
