How does it work?
Many people spend too much time grooming their eyebrows, whether it is waxing, plucking, or threading.

Even though eyebrows tend to change over time, microblading can deliver semipermanent results.
Tiny hair strokes are made using a manual tattoo technique. During this process, pigment is deposited into the outer part of your skin. Since the pigment can fade over time, it is highly recommended that you go in for a touch-up every 1-2 years to keep your results nice.
What can I expect during my treatment?
You can expect up to 2 hours for the microblading process to be completed. Prior to the procedure, eyebrow mapping is completed which is when your technician will draw and measure the outline of your desired brow shape. Numbing cream will then be applied to the area. Your technician will then make tiny strokes to create a brow that is natural-looking.
Even though your technician will apply numbing cream, you can still expect to feel a bit uncomfortable. However, the process is well tolerable.
