Microblading is a technique using a super-fine pen (a bundle of 12 to 15 needles) to deposit pigment into skin. The tip is so fine, in fact, that it can create hair strokes that look natural, compared to previous tattooing methods that leave the brows looking boxy. The needles reach only into the superficial layers of the skin, which is what makes the method semi-permanent (versus permanent, like traditional cosmetic tattoos). Think of each stroke as a little paper-cut. (Numbing cream is applied as needed for minimal discomfort during procedure.)
What you should know: Microblading is ideal for any client seeking fuller, more shaped, natural brows. The procedure pain is very mild, as numbing cream can be applied as needed. After care is simple to follow, as your Microblading Artist will provide you with a detailed aftercare sheet. For allergies, a patch test can be requested.
How long microblading lasts: You’ll need a touch-up in about a month (This is included in the price). Then, microbladed brows can last anywhere from 12 months to three years, depending on your skin type, as well as your lifestyle. Unlike traditional tattooing methods, your brows will fade with minimal- no discoloration.
A few tips to extend your beautiful brows: Stay out of the sun, since it can fade the pigment, and avoid putting exfoliants (like retinol and glycolic acid) near your brows, because they’ll lift the top layers of your skin with continued use—and the color with it.
