FAQs

What, Exactly, is Microblading?

In short, microblading is a semi-permanent procedure for eyebrows, similar to tattooing, a specialised handheld tool is used to create the appearance of hairstrokes on the brow line to recreate the perfect eyebrow. The hairstrokes imitate real eyebrow hairs, creating the appearance of thicker, fuller brows.

How Does it Work?

Microblading is a process where multiple tiny, superficial cuts are placed in the brow line, the channels that are made are then filled in with pigments to create darker, fuller brows. Microblading can also be used to reshape the brow. It can fill in sparse arches or create the perfect tapering effect. Thanks to a specially designed hand tool, microblading can create hair-thin cuts that mimic the shape of real eyebrows. Having this control of the instrument offers a more refined, natural looking brow. Traditional eyebrow tattooing made brows look artificial, both in colour and thickness resulting in penned on brows. With microblading, the results are nearly indistinguishable from real eyebrows.

Does it Hurt?

It can a little sharp during the procedure. However, before microblading begins, your brows are treated with a numbing cream to reduce any discomfort. The level of pain is similar to eyebrow threading. Overall, microblading is no worse than regular waxing or plucking.

How long does it take?

The procedure may take up to three hours.

This is due to the several stages involved in microblading. The desired shape, arch, and thickness of the brows have to first be outlined and drawn in before the actual microblading can begin. This will ensure that the brows look exactly the way you want them to after the procedure has taken place. It’s a delicate process that requires precision and attention to detail.

What Happens After?

It’s important not to scrub the eyebrows with cleansers and to avoid using any products with glycolic acid on your brows, as this can fade the pigment. Your brows will look much darker at first, some of that colour will fade after a week or so.

If you’re going to make the investment, make sure it’s done by someone qualified and experienced.

This essentially means, that you don’t want to “get a deal” and end up with uneven or unnatural looking brows. Microblading is an art form. It takes skill, precision, and experience.

How Long Does it Last?

The results of microblading usually last between 1 and 3 years. Because it’s semi-permanent, the pigment will eventually fade. You should consider going in for a touch-up after 6 – 12 months.

Who Should Get Microblading?

It is for anyone who wishes to redefine their eyebrows. Whether they are naturally thin, or your brow-ends are fading with age, microblading has the ability to add volume and colour to your eyebrows. Microblading can also reshape your brows, adding more angle to your arch or more detail to your ends.
