Microblading is a specialized technique of cosmetic tattooing performed specifically on the eyebrows. It is done by manually depositing pigment into the second layer of the skin (dermis). What makes it truly unique is the hand tool used. The unique formation of needles allows the artist to create the look of real eyebrow hairs by tattooing very fine hair-like strokes in the skin.
Depending on the client and the health of their skin, microblading procedures should last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. Microblading is not supposed to last forever and will require touchups when the pigment begins to fade.
Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup and is subject to fading over time due to exfoliation, sun exposure and skincare products that may increase exfoliation of the skin. However, microblading should last anywhere from 1 year to 3 years before requiring a touch-up.
*Pricing includes the first session of microblading and the touch-up session that takes place 6 weeks after the initial session.
