Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that is performed using a specialized hand-tool to implant ink into the skin. It is an extremely meticulous process in which pigment strokes are manually made into the skin, to look just like real eyebrow hairs. The end result is very natural looking eyebrows. Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct their brows or for those just trying to keep their brow game on point by defining, covering gaps, adding a slight arch or filling-in over plucked brows.

Touch-Up (3-12 months after initial procedure)
As time passes, pigments may fade and aesthetic preferences can change, necessitating adjustments to maintain your desired appearance. Our skilled technicians will carefully refresh your colour, shape, or style, ensuring your permanent makeup continues to complement your natural beauty.
What can I expect from the microblading procedure?
First we have a detailed consultation in which we discuss exactly what each client is looking to achieve. We match the pigment to each client’s natural brow hair and test the shades against skin tone first. Before a microblade is even picked up, we customize shape, size, and hair pattern with a pencil to ensure the client is completely satisfied. Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort. Don’t be worried about the process being painful, some clients may feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively painless. Then the super precise microblading procedure begins and takes around 2 hours to complete.
Why does this procedure last longer on some and not on others?
The years or permanency of a “semi-permanent” cosmetic procedure are different for every individual. There are many factors that contribute to a successful procedure. First, we have to factor in, UVA and UVB exposure. The more time you spend in the sunshine, the less time the procedure will last. Secondly, which products are used on the face? Certain cosmetic products (face washes, moisturizers, sunscreen, toners, creams, foundations, make-up etc…) will affect the longevity of your pigment. Moreover, proper colour selection, viscosity of the pigment, the client’s skin thickness, needle/microblade selection, insertion depth, the client’s health and how many passes the technician inserts into the skin (building colour volume) will also play a role.
Why do we use Semi Permanent Pigments?
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen and our eyebrows ‘sag’. The pigments used in semi-permanent make-up will fade over time. This is preferred over traditional tattooing because faces change over the years and so do brow styles, therefore it’s best that your brow fades and can be redone and restyled over the years.
