Manual Microblading is a form of semi-permanent tattooing for creating realistic looking eyebrows. A sterilized hand held tool with a small blade is used to draw, or "scratch" hair-like strokes that mimic natural eyebrows. The small blade is comprised of several tiny needles that deposit pigment into the top layer of the skin, thus creating eyebrow hairs.
The pigment used in microblading is semi-permanent and can last between 1-3 years. The brow pigment once imbedded into the skin will change over time. While they are long lasting, brows will begin to fade within 12 months. The strokes will soften and blur. In order to maintain fresh looking brows, a touch up is recommended every 12-18 months maximum.
The life length of your microbladed brows can depend on a variety of factors:
A complimentary consultation is done prior to your first microblading session to discuss whether manual microblading is the right procedure for you.
The initial microblading session will take 2.5 to 3 hours. During this time, a consultation is done where we discuss your desired brow look, choose a colour tone and draw the initial outline of the brows for your approval. Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and a topical numbing cream is then applied for 25 to 30 minutes. The actual microblading work session is about 45 to 60 minutes where the semi-permanent pigment is implanted into the skin with a disposable microblading hand tool. During the procedure a topical numbing cream will be reapplied during the entire microblading session.
Aftercare instructions and a good tattoo aftercare cream will be provided for you. Proper aftercare following your treatment is necessary to achieve and prolong the best results.
Your next session is a TOUCH UP appointment. The touch up takes approximately 1-1.5 hours and is included in your service. Touch ups are done between 5 to 8 weeks of your initial session. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes, colour tones and finishes the process. If you do not schedule your touch up within this time frame, you will be required to pay a touch up fee.
Manual microblading is a safe and innovative procedure that creates the effect of full, natural looking brows.
