What is Browblading or Microblading?
Browblading (or eyebrow embroidery) is a relatively new, manual method which does not use a normal permanent makeup machine. Manual Microstroking, sometimes referred to as Microblading, Brow Micropigmentation, Manual Technique, Hand Method Eyebrow Permanent Makeup, Feather Brows, 3D-6D Brows, Cosmetic Tattooing and Eyebrow Embroidery, originated in Asia and has become very popular in in the last few years all across the world.
Microblading is done by using a unique hand instrument with a small row of very fine needles that deposit pigment into the dermis with slicing, feathering strokes. The pigment is implanted in the basal membrane, which divides the epidermis from the Dermis layer of the skin. This creates very crisp, fine hair strokes that don’t blur after healing like you would experience with a traditional permanent makeup machine.
How long does it last?
Everyone is different; but it can last up to 3 years. You may need to come in for touch-ups yearly. Some clients desire to do more frequent touch ups.
Does it hurt?
This is designed to be a gentle procedure with minimal discomfort. The degree of discomfort will depend on several factors, such as if you opt for anesthetics, location of the treatment, and your pain threshold. Most clients prefer to use numbing cream, which we will apply before commencing treatment.
