Microblading is a hair stroke technique of semi-permanent makeup. It is performed by manually depositing pigment under the top layer of the skin by a special blade and pen.
Perfect eyebrows are the stuff dreams are made of. Imagine waking up and not having to spend 20 minutes drawing in your eyebrows or trying to make them look even!! All eyebrows were not created equal; some eyebrows require just a little extra touch to look perfect while others require the help of a small miracle just to get by.
Even though naturally perfect eyebrows are few and far between, eyebrow microblading makes it possible to transform any eyebrows into the closest thing to naturally perfect as possible.
Who said great eyebrows are for women only? Men are finally catching on that eyebrows truly frame your face and no one should ever feel bad about wanting to look good. So yes microblading is perfect for men too.
A microblading tool consists of a pen and with a series of micro needles attached to it. The microblade is dipped into color of pigment and then used to make a fine cut or microstroke in the upper layer of the skin without reaching the dermis.
This process results in the pigment being implanted into the skin, which is known as micropigmentation. A properly trained Artist using the proper technique will ensure that the microbladed eyebrow results look beautiful and completely natural without blurry strokes.

MICROBLADING VS PERMANENT MAKEUP
The procedure sounds a lot like a tattoo, because that’s exactly what it is. More specifically, microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo. However, microbladed eyebrows are nothing like grandma’s permanent tattooed eyebrows that sort of look like they were drawn on using a sharpie, and then fade into unnatural shades of blue and pink over time.
There are two major differences that make microblading more natural looking compared to the results permanent cosmetics are known for.
First, the pigment used for microblading isn’t implanted into the skin as deeply compared to the depth used for permanent cosmetic procedures. The proper depth for the color to be implanted during the microblading procedure is the upper layer of the dermis. If the microstroke doesn’t go deep enough, the color retention will be poor, and if it’s too deep, it causes scarring and the healed strokes look blurry instead of fine and crisp.
Second, the type of pigment used for microblading has an iron oxide base. An iron oxide base allows the color to softly fade over time and ultimately vanish, unlike the inks used in permanent cosmetic tattoos which last a lifetime.
The pigment being implanted at the correct depth, combined with its iron oxide base is what gives microblading results the appearance of natural looking eyebrows. The semi permanent qualities of the microblading pigment prevent it from fading into unnatural shades that are so common with permanent cosmetics.
BYE BYE BROW ROUTINE
Not only do microblading results look amazingly natural, but they also don’t require any daily stressful upkeep, so kiss the daily eyebrow routine goodbye. Although microbladed brows won’t require daily maintenance, because the results are semi-permanent, they typically last somewhere between one to three years depending on skin type and lifestyle.
We recommend you book your next procedure after 12-18 months to keep the color looking vibrant, and the microblade strokes looking crisp.
