What is Microblading

Microblading: A form of semi-permanent makeup. It is done by using a handheld tool to implement pigment into the top layers of the skin (epidermis).


Since the pigment being deposited much closer to the surface, the hair-like strokes appear crisp and very fine. These effects can last 12-18 months, after which the pigment will slowly fade until it has completely left the skin.

There is no “spilling” under the skin. This is a much gentler alternative to Permanent Makeup. When permanent makeup is done, a machine is used to deposit ink into the deeper layers of the skin (dermis).

Microblading is the ideal method for anyone wanting to enhance the look of his or her eyebrows. The results are natural and appear hair-like regardless of the amount of hair currently present. Your brows will appear fuller and flawless. This method is perfect for patients who suffer from conditions which result in hair loss from the brows as well as those patients that simply want to improve the shape, color or absence of hair from over plucking, over tweezing, over threading and/or over waxing.
