Microblading

Gain the effect of ultra-fine, delicate hair strokes that blend seamlessly with natural brow hair. Whether your own brows are light in color, thin due to ageing or plucking or absent altogether, this treatment creates a natural brow effect that will last and last.

Eyebrow Microblading

Microblading is the latest trend in semi-permanent makeup. This procedure has become highly sought after, as it allows us to create extremely natural results. Individual hairs are simulated to create the perfect shape along with a custom blended color. A correctly shaped, natural eyebrow is one of the most important features on the face. Microblading is suitable for thinning, sparse and over-plucked eyebrows for both women and men of all ages. Eyebrow microblading is performed using a special microblading hand tool that deposits a small amount of pigment into the outer layer of skin to create fine hair strokes. The microblading results are long lasting and incredibly realistic.

It usually takes 2 hours, with most of the time spent going over colors and drawing eyebrow shapes. The microblading portion lasts 30-45 minutes.

Since microblading is semi-permanent, the color gradually fades over time. While results vary from client to client, on average, microblading results last 1 to 2 years. To maintain your results longer, we strongly encourage annual touch-ups to refresh the pigment and redefine the hair strokes.

The color will appear darker through the first week or so. This is because the pigment takes around seven days to enter the deeper layers of the skin. After seven to ten days, exfoliation takes place. The top layer of the skin peels off, leaving a softer, lighter color below. The result leaves you with softer and more natural lines. As the treated area continues to heal, itching may occur. Itching is a good sign as it means the skin is healing. The complete healing process for microbladed eyebrows typically takes six weeks and then a touch up appointment follows. The touch up appointment is scheduled during the initial microblading appointment for 4 to 8 weeks later

Most clients report little or no pain! We use a topical anesthetic before the procedure to numb the affected area.
Stay out of the sun and water while your microblading heals. Avoid chlorine, exfoliation creams, and sun exposure; they may cause your color to fade. We recommend applying a small amount of A&D ointment twice a day.
We offer a complimentary touch up between 4-8 weeks of your appointment. After that, we charge a fee.

Yes! Microblading works on all skin tones and colors. If you have oily skin, large pores, Keloid disorder, we do not recommend microblading.

Yes! Because we hand draw every hair stroke, you’ll marvel at this super precise technique.
