Micro-blading is a method of applying of semi-permanent make-up. Micro-blading is done by manually inserting pigment into the upper layers of skin to give the impression of fullness and shape to the eyebrows. It is done via a manual blade so strokes are sharp and crisp. The results of this method should look natural and just like hair strokes.
Semi-permanent makeup involves having pigment implanted into the epidermis using a fine needle – similar to a tattoo but the process is less painful, the “ink” used is usually mineral based and the results are not permanent.
When it comes to having micro-blading done, a technician will take six measurements on your brow bone to make out the perfect shape for your brows. The process usually takes between one a half to two hours and at least one touch up will be needed to get your final result.
The healing process is relatively quick – but final results may not be visible until several weeks after your appointment because of how the skin heals. The results will not wash off and usually last for a couple of years – but can be maintained and kept for longer with touch ups, usually one a year.
