Microblading is a “permanent makeup" procedure that has gained popularity in recent years. It is an advanced eyebrow embroidery technique, which involves tattooing onto the skin with exceptionally detailed and natural strokes, one by one. The result is the appearance of a thicker, more defined, smudge-proof eyebrow that looks natural, regardless of the amount of hair present.
Who Should Consider Microblading?
Microblading works well for both men and women who are experiencing alopecia, ttrichillomania, or any other condition that causes hair loss. It also is popular with women who aren't happy with the shape and symmetry of their eyebrows or would like to avoid the daily chore of using an eyebrow pencil to maintain the look they desire.
How Does It Work?
Microblading, also known as microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes, helps to camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. The meticulous technique involves using ultra fine needles to draw individual, crisp hair strokes with color-matched pigments that produce be very natural results. The technician applies a numbing solution to limit discomfort.
The procedure typically takes up to two hours and is done right in our office. There is no down time and little or no special care is needed. It is recommended that we do a “touch-up” procedure 1-2 weeks after the initial treatment to ensure that your skin is retaining the pigment appropriately.
How long does it last?
Microblading provides a “semipermanent solution,” so the pigments used will slowly fade over time. In most cases, the results from a microblading treatment will last up to a year or longer. An annual touch-up is recommended to maintain the look your want.
Are there any risks?
Serious complications are unlikely. As with any form of tattooing, risks may include adverse reactions to the pigment ingredient or, in rare cases, transmission of pathogenic organisms such as Hepatitis C virus or HIV. Strict adherence to sterile practices by our staff minimizes any risk of these adverse reactions.
