Microblading is a technique for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows. This can last approximately 12-18 months. Pigment is finely tattooed into the skin with fine, short strokes resembling hair. A hand tool resembling a calligraphy pen is used. The best candidates for microblading are those who desire a fuller, more youthful eyebrow.
During your appointment, we apply topical numbing gel for 20 minutes prior to the procedure. Kathleen will take measurements, match pigments and start the procedure.
A microblade is used with different size blades to create wispy or thicker hair-like strokes. We use many colors of pigment to create hairlike appearance for non-existent or sparse brows.
